Paradise Found!November 2012
Want heaven on earth? Try the very private Petit Saint Vincent in the Grenadines.
I learned a valuable travel lesson long ago: The more forms of transportation it takes to reach a destination, the better. After all, the world’s most exclusive spots really can’t be reached by jumbo jet alone (nor should they). Effort should be taken, and rewarded. I arrive at Petit Saint Vincent, an island in the Grenadines, with this very mind-set.

Private ParadiseOctober 2012
The no-tech, private island of Petit St. Vincent in the Grenadines is perfect for a digital detox.
Two days into my stay on the Caribbean island of Petit St. Vincent I noticed the flagpole outside my neighbours' villa was still flying the red "do not disturb" flag that had been fluttering since my arrival. But then Petit St. Vincent is the kind of place where you can hide away with a loved one, for days on end, and only be disturbed by meal deliveries and fresh ice for the fridge.

Why We Love It
Here’s your chance to really unplug. Like the other 21 cottages (all recently renovated) on this 115-acre private island hideaway, two-bedroom number 11 is refreshingly free of TVs and phones. Summon unlimited complimentary room service by means of a flag system, and enjoy a secluded location just steps away from the coral-fringed beach.

Hotel Watch: Chair ApparentJune 2012
Every other resort bills itself as "luxury," but as an unapologetic hotel snob with a decade of Caribbean hotel-hopping under my belt, I've come to depend on one unorthodox indicator: the teak beach chair. I've found that a neat row of handsome wooden chaises - as opposed to those ubiquitous molded plastic monstrosities - tells you more than any brochure hype or breathless TripAdvisor review ever could: It reliably indicates a painstaking level of attention to guests' comfort that only a posh hotel offers. Such is the case at Petit St. Vincent, a 115-acre private-island resort in the southern sweep of the Grenadines.Download full pdf article (3MB)...

It List: The Best New Hotels 2012June 2012
Without the distractions of television and Wi-Fi, the star is the island itself. Though we found it a little rough around the edges, this may be as close as one can get to an unspoiled paradise in the Caribbean. The new beachside restaurant makes expertly grilled spiny lobster and scallop ceviche, and the volcanic-stone and purple-heart hardwood cottages were recently revamped in a beachy palette of white and turquoise.

Robinson Crusoe with deep pockets—local stone and wood, an open-air beach bar with a thatched roof, and a view over the reef that’s so breathtaking it could be a screen saver. Every fantasy you’ve ever had about a desert island—talcum-powder sand, swaying palms, frangipani, hummingbirds, and just the right amount of isolation. Last but never least, the food is sensational—try the lobster-and-papaya salad or the creole crab backs at the beach bar.

Reviews: Hotel of the MonthApril 2012
A private island that will make you feel pleasantly shipwrecked, Petit St Vincent is exclusive but not pretentious, says Ianthe Butt. Switch off your mobile phone, disconnect your brain, put aside your working worries and prepare to enter a tech free zone. The only tweets here are chirruping birds', and ring tones are replaced by the swish-swoosh of waves kissing the shore. Good things come in small packages, goes the old adage, and the 115 acres of Petit St Vincent in the Grenadines is no exception.Download full pdf article (770KB)...
Life of WhoaApril 2012
I's say this villa is decent in size. But when I slid two glass doors open, the place was basically down to two walls. The sea and constant breeze became an extension of the villa. I felt like an invisible king on the hill.Download full pdf article (937KB)...

Flag SaluteJanuary 1, 2012
A lot has changed at Petit St. Vincent since the 115-acre Caribbean private-island resort closed for renovations last summer. But the local code at the resort, which reopened in November, remains the same: Red still means “please leave us alone” and yellow, “check the flagpole, we have a request.”Download full pdf article (633KB)...
