Cousteau Away: A Diving School with a Serious Pedigree

November 2014 The apple never falls far from the tree.Which is why Donald Trump’s kids are in real estate. Martin Sheen’s kids went into acting. And Jacques Cousteau’s son is a long-haul trucker. Kidding. He opened this place: Jean-Michel Cousteau Diving Caribbean, a new diving mecca in the Grenadines run by Cousteau’s oldest son, accepting intrepid applicants now.

Like any good adventurer, he’s set up camp on a private island (which you may peruse here) full of oceanfront cottages and villas—so that takes care of your sleeping arrangements.

As for the diving, we see three scenarios playing out:
1. You’ve never dived once in your life.
2. You’ve done some diving in your day.
3. You’re basically Aquaman.

Get Lost

October 2014 The private island Petit St. Vincent is the dreamiest remedy for a frentic lifestyle. Televisions, clocks and Wi-Fi are noticeably absent from the rooms. Most of the 22 cottages include their own private beach, making garmentless dips in the ocean an elective experience. Post-swim, head to the Hillside Spa, where coconut and brown rice indigineous to the island are blended on-site for treatments.

Dreamiest Private Island Resorts

August 2014 DREAM FACTOR: 115 acres, 16 one-bedroom and 6 two-bedroom villas (all with ocean views).

An Upscale Stay at Petit St. Vincent

August 2014 Petit St. Vincent on the Grenadine Islands offers an idyllic escape from the modern world.

Petit St. Vincent, a small luxury resort in the Grenadines, is the perfect place to get away from it all. There is no in-room Internet service or television, and cell phones are pretty much useless at this sand-encircled, 115-acre boutique resort on a private Grenadine island. Your world is blissfully confined to spectacular sunrises and sunsets, sprawling ocean views from your room and exquisite food. And let’s not forget that fruity drink you can get at Goatie’s, a new beach bar overlooking the aquamarine harbor and with Petite Martinique in the distance.

Hotel Highlight: The Sweetest Perk at Petit St Vincent

August 2014 There are many things to love about Petit St Vincent, this all-inclusive private island resort in the southern sweep of the Grenadines: Its 22 casual-chic oceanfront and hillside cottages. The charmingly retro Mini Moke beach buggies, made in a workshop right on the island, that ferry guests around the 115-acre islet. And of course, the resort’s signature flagpole system, by which guests raise a red or green pennant outside their cottage to either summon service or request solitude.

But one of the things I love most is much smaller. No, not the Nespresso machines, Frette robes or Bulgari toiletries that come standard in each villa.
Not the cute eyelet beach bag, either. It’s the homemade cookies that captured my heart.

A Private Island Paradise

April 2014 It’s almost impossible to write about Petit St Vincent without conjuring up a big old tropical cliché lifted straight from the pages of a bridal magazine. Yes, this a private island and yes, there are plenty of jaw-droppingly beautiful and apparently deserted beaches as well a seemingly endless number of spots to sip icy fruit cocktails and guzzle as much fresh lobster as you want. But cast aside thoughts of sun baked oligarchs and holidaying royalty. While Petit St Vincent might look like the quintessential Caribbean haunt at first glimpse, its earthy charm and cheerful inhabitants mark it out as something special.
