Hotels in Bequia

Overlooking the crystalline waters off Bequia’s southeast coast, the hotel proves that "barefoot luxury" is more than an expression.

A sunny three-bedroom villa on the side of a hill, with a pool and sea views.

The new hotel on Friendship Bay overlooks calm water and the jagged Grenadine islands in the distance. The 29 colonial-style rooms open onto sun-drenched patios, and terraced gardens are filled with banana, mango, and papaya trees.

In the early 1960’s, American expat Tom Johnston fell in love with the laid-back pace of Bequia. He soon began work on his legacy, Moonhole, an eclectic group of houses near secluded Moonhole Beach, on the island’s southwestern tip.

Built by a sea captain for his family more than 100 years ago, the 15-room Frangipani Hotel stands at the head of Admiralty Bay. Behind the two-story main house, with its pitched roof, gingerbread fretwork, and five simple rooms, are 10 suites shaded by the hotel’s eponymous trees.

The six-suite sister property to Firefly Mustique opened in Bequia in 2007.
