From mountainous St Vincent to the magical Grenadines, the 32-island nation of St Vincent and the Grenadines is a place that inspires everything from affection to infatuation in its loyalists.
And it’s easy to see why on the dreamy Grenadines island of Canouan with its lush lagoons, warm turquoise waters, sugary sands and verdant interior. Here on the island’s barrier-reef-facing aspect lies the luxurious but laid-back Canouan Estate Resort & Villas. Scattered amidst the resort’s 500-hectare grounds are a collection of stand-alone villas and residences, which are charmingly named and range from two to six bedrooms.
On the estate, visitors can enjoy the four beaches, four restaurants and bars, an 18-hole Jim Fazio-designed golf course, kids’ club, three tennis courts, hiking trails and a fitness centre.
Guests can reach the cool and calm Canouan Estate Resort & Villas by taking short hop from St Vincent (5 minutes) or Barbados (25-30 minutes) or other neighbouring islands on the estate’s six-seater Cessna Citation Jet or by scheduled inter-island flights from Barbados and St Vincent. You could also berth your yacht at Sandy Lane Yacht Club if it’s under 100 metres.
