St. Vincent + The Grenadines

Hotels in St. Vincent + The Grenadines

St Vincent and the Grenadines hotels offer first-class accommodations to match their historically elite clientele.

The best hotels in St Vincent and the Grenadines include the Petit St Vincent, a private resort that recently received a multi-million dollar overhaul. Spend your days lounging in its beachfront driftwood palapas (huts) and reserve a thatched-roof cottage for beauty sleep. There’s also a waterside restaurant and a tree-house-style spa offering open-air hot-stone massages.

On an island known for its lavish rentals, the Cotton House on Mustique is one of the hotels in St. Vincent and the Grenadines that succeeds for its casual elegance. The 20-room hotel is housed in a former 18th-century coral warehouse and sugar mill, featuring dark woods and flowing white curtains. Its suites offer private plunge pools and easy access to two beaches.

Similarly, the Buccament Bay Resort — one of the newest hotels in St. Vincent and the Grenadines — features 90 rentable beachfront villas on the main island, along with a string of infinity pools overlooking the sea.

More affordable beachfront digs can be found at the Bequia Beach Hotel, a 29-room colonial-style hotel overlooking its namesake island’s Friendship Bay. The property features plenty of relaxing patio seating, along with gardens filled with banana, mango and papaya trees.

Canouan, a five-square-mile island in the Grenadine archipelago, may be one of the lesser known islands in the Caribbean, but its Tamarind Beach Hotel & Yacht Club has a white-sand beach as beautiful as any you’ll find on any better-known neighboring isles.

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.

Filled with family photos and personal mementos from his legendary career, Mick Jagger's Japanese-style beachfront retreat has six bedrooms, a pool and Jacuzzi, a koi pond, a Jeep, and a staff of six who cater to guests.

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 five-room hotel is one of two hotels on the entire island.

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

This 20-room hotel on the private island of Mustique is always booked with boldface names, yet it retains a refreshingly laid-back vibe. At the Cotton House, casual elegance reigns; the interior is filled with loads of comfortable white-upholstered furniture, dark woods, and flowing curtains.

Accessible only by boat, this exclusive enclave occupies its own jewel-like Caribbean island. The 135-acre property has just 43 guest rooms and cottages, so you won’t want for privacy here.

One of the first Messel houses, and one of the least expensive on the island, the renatal house is a charming, if faded, architectural gem, with sweeping views from the back terrace over the swimming pool and Endeavor Bay to the islands of Canouan and Bequia beyond.

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