A secluded all-inclusive retreat with unique cottage-style rooms and exquisite dining. Caribbean charm meets natural beauty at this idyllic hideaway which offers an authentic Caribbean experience and exceptional dining. Savour the tranquility and relaxed ambience and enjoy personalised service. Relax under the shade of a palapa on the beach, swim in the bay’s calm waters and watch fishermen bring their fresh catch to shore. Join the head gardener on a tour of the magnificent gardens to discover over 100 different species of exotic flora and 30 species of birds.
Exclusive local tours are also available such as a day trip to Pigeon Island, a sunset cruise, rum tasting and a shopping trip. Enjoy four-course dinners at the open-air beachfront Flamboyant Room which is renowned for its innovative menus, romantic dinners in one of the Palm Beach Gazebos, and choose dishes from the all-day light bite menu. Create your own cocktails at the self-service swim-up bar, sip bubbly at the Champagne bar and enjoy live jazz and cocktails at the Bamboo Lounge. The new patio area, Mac and Eric’s Place, is the ideal spot for enjoying cocktails at sunset, while the stylish new Almond Deck area is perfect for a romantic meal on the beachfront.
Personalise your stay with a pre-arrival online check list which offers choices including a pillow menu and minibar selections. The hexagonal-shaped Superior Garden Cottages and spacious Deluxe Garden Cottages are sprinkled throughout the gardens. The newly refurbished Oceanfront Rooms are smaller but are closer to the beach and offer a lovely shared open-air lounge and fabulous sea views.
With its softly undulating landscape, and ambling pace of life, tiny, unspoilt Bequia embodies old-style Caribbean charm: this is a place where you can really soak up the local character. Bequia Beach Hotel is set in 10 acres of landscaped gardens on Friendship Bay Beach on Bequia island, which is nine miles west of Mustique, and can be reached by light aircraft from Barbados or St Lucia, or just an hour’s ferry ride from St Vincent.
With just 44 rooms, suites and villas, the Bequia Beach Hotel has been carefully created to ensure a great mix of accommodation, most of which have dazzling ocean views. From Poolside Rooms to Beachfront Suites and a handful of villas with a private pool, there is an option to suit all tastes and preferences. The decor is reminiscent of classic Caribbean chic with touches of contemporary style. Bagatelle offers an eclectic mix of Euro-Caribbean cuisine, whilst the classic Italian menu on offer at Blue Tropic will delight the taste buds of even the most avid Italian cuisine lovers. Jack's Beach Bar offers a beachside haven in beach-chic style, and their tempura and burgers are a must-try.
As with any Caribbean island, expect fresh fish and seafood to feature heavily on the menus too, taking advantage of the daily catches which are brought to the hotel's shores each day by local fishermen. There's plenty to do here, if you can draw yourself away from the indulgent beachside pool, or the beach itself. There are a number of non-motorised water sports readily available. The hotel also has a gym, or you can soothe your muscles with a massage at the spa.
Teeming with a cornucopia of fish, the crystal-clear waters surrounding Bequia Beach are ideal for snorkelling, and there are two scuba centres on the island. Head out on a sailing trip for the chance to spot dolphins, and we'd also highly recommend taking a day trip to the stunning Tobago Cays, where you can usually be fortunate enough to swim with green turtles. Back on dry land, you’re never more than 15 minutes by taxi to wherever you want to go, including the scenic natural harbour, Port Elizabeth. Here you can wander round the farmers’ markets, have some classic Caribbean dishes by the waterfront, and adopt the wonderfully relaxed pace of life.
Another worthwhile trip is a visit to the neighbouring sister island of St Vincent, and there is a regular public ferry service to a number of other nearby islands, all waiting to be explored.
