Luxury bepoke holidays to Petit St Vincent, the Grenadines

Petit St Vincent Resort (or PSV, as it is known) occupies a private island of about 113 acres, south of Union Island in St Vincent & the Grenadines. Surrounded by reef, the sea around Petit St Vincent is myriad shades of green and blue. Snorkelling is excellent here. Although there is no swimming pool, there are secluded beaches all around the island. Cottages are dotted around Petit St Vincent, some on the hill, others right on the beachfront. Communication is by way of flags raised outside your cottage, indicating service or privacy. Seclusion and privacy are the watchwords here at Petit St Vincent and, the lack of wifi, phones and televisions in the villas, coupled with its startling natural location and ambience, making it ideal for honeymooners or for those who really want to escape from the rigours of contemporary life.

About St Vincent and the Grenadines

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to St Vincent and the Grenadines transports you to a paradise island of indulgence and luxury. One of the most striking impressions of St Vincent and the Grenadines must be from the air flying between St Vincent and the other islands. You behold a breath-taking panorama of the sea in a multitude of shades of green, turquoise and blue and dotted here and there islands of varying sizes, frequently enveloped by white sandy beaches. There is a great variety of luxury hotels on these islands, including Petit St Vincent, a secluded, private island retreat which offers a rustic sophistication amid natural scenery. Although much in demand by yachtsmen and favoured by the aristocracy, St Vincent and the Grenadines in particular are quite off the beaten track and uncommercial. St Vincent is a lush, tropical mountainous island of fishing villages, bananas and coconuts, with many beaches made up of black volcanic sand. The Grenadines each have their own character - Bequia in particular is charming, relaxed and very pretty with gingerbread houses, flamboyant trees, bougainvillaea and caters well for the visitor; Canouan is still quite natural and is only starting to be developed; Petit St Vincent and Palm Island to a are both occupied exclusively by the hotels we feature. The Grenadines provide an away from it all luxury holiday destination, with glorious natural scenery and great sailing and snorkelling opportunities.

Highlights of St Vincent and the Grenadines

Botanical gardens in Kingstown. Vincy Mas carnival at the end of June. Port Elizabeth on Bequia with its coconut palmed fringed waterfront and gingerbread houses. Tobago Cays for sailing, snorkelling and diving. Yachts in Port Elizabeth harbour. Hairoun is the local beer. On Bequia cricket is played with four stumps. Captain Bligh is the local rum and fried jackfish and breadfruit the national dish. Silk screened fabrics and garments at the Crab Hole on Bequia. Sailing into Saltwhistle Bay, Mayreau for a beer or lunch. Spice cake at the Frangipani on Bequia.

Travel around the Grenadines

On St Vincent, taxis will take you on island tours and for shorter distances too. In the Grenadines travel from island to island is usually by boat or Air Mustique. The islands are very small and on Palm Island and PSV there are no cars. On Bequia taxis are available if you want to see the other side of the island.
