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.

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.
