Petit St Vincent 2019 Press Coverage

Organic Spa

Barefoot Chic

December 2019 Petit St Vincent isn't easy to get to, but it's well worth the trip.
It takes some effort to get to Petit St. Vincent. Located in the Grenadines, an island chain in the southernmost part of the Caribbean, the 115-acre private island is accessed by a near full day of travel that includes at least two flights depending on where you are coming from), followed by a boat ride to the island's dock.

Once at the 22-villa, barefoot-chic resort, however, all that travel stress melts away–which is why guests have been coming here for years, and why they tend to stay put for a while once they arrive.

Unplugged and Liking It. (Unlocked? Not So Much)

November 2019 Here’s how it went down at the ultimate island resort.
It sounds like a game of “Would you rather.” As in, would you rather go to a gorgeous island in the Caribbean if it meant no Internet, no text messaging, and no locks on the door? Or would you rather stay home?

First, we’ll set the stage. The island in question is Petit St. Vincent, home to a luxury resort that’s been called one of the world’s most enchanting hideaways. Lapped by the aqua waters of the Caribbean Sea on one side, and the wild Atlantic on the other side, the humpy green island of Petit St. Vincent sits between St. Lucia and Grenada. The 115-acre volcano-borne island and the resort are one in the same — this private island is owned by the resort, and it’s part of the island country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Petit St Vincent: The Perfect Private Island Resort

November 2019 Tucked away at the southern tip of St Vincent and The Grenadines, this enchanting single-resort island is ideal for a carefree and romantic beach break.

Why it's specialLarge enough to explore, small enough to feel intimate, Petit St Vincent is all about enjoying some Caribbean downtime in a privately owned paradise, blessed with uncrowded white sand beaches, lush tropical forest and luxurious open-plan accommodation. There's been a resort here since 1968, a heritage evident in its faithful and ever-cheery staff and the venerable blue-and-white mokes that transport guests around the island's 115 acres. The 22 stone cottages are built for privacy (you need to raise a flag to get service), but there's plenty of interaction and activities when you fancy it, including a running track with outdoor gym stations, a Jean-Michel Cousteau Dive Centre, a Balinese spa and open-air yoga classes. Top of the to-do list should be a day-sail aboard the immaculately kept 49ft sloop, Beauty, a good look at the wine cellar – stocked with some 200 labels – and a private dinner at an island location of your choice.

Where to Stay in St Vincent and the Grenadines

September 2019 Petit St Vincent Raise a glass—and a flag for Petit St Vincent, a.k.a. PSV, one of our favorite private island resorts in the Caribbean. The resort’s 22 stone and wood cottages are widely scattered over the 115-acre island, which is constantly roamed by staff keeping an eye out for the yellow flags raised by occupants in need of food, drink, or other amenities. Otherwise, keep the red flag up and you’ll be left alone to enjoy the splendid isolation unless you want to venture down to the main resort hub for dinner, beach, spa, a game of tennis, or a hike to the 275-foot summit of Marni Hill. Rates include food and activities, but not alcoholic drinks or spa treatments and tours.

Life unplugged: Disconnecting in the Caribbean at Petit St Vincent

August 2019 “I’m not going for a run,” my partner sighed. “If it’s not on Strava, it just doesn’t count.” I laughed. We had travelled to the private island resort of Petit St. Vincent in St Vincent and the Grenadines for a short break after a week in Orlando. Specifically, for a break from technology.
I find it difficult to switch off – especially from work emails, even when four and a half thousand miles away – while my partner records every move he makes on apps and can’t start his day without scrolling through the headlines for at least 10 minutes.

Petit St. Vincent: The Island Paradise Where 'Digital Detoxing' Makes Perfect Sense

April 2019 Go Wifi free in this cleverly designed corner of the Caribbean.
The trend for ‘digital detoxing’ presents the travel industry with an interesting challenge. In 2019 we all claim to want to escape the tyranny of our smartphones, and a holiday should be the perfect opportunity. But when it really comes down to it, how serious are we? Can anywhere – no matter how luxurious or fun – make the prospect of literally 'switching off' palatable? Or to put it more philosophically: does a cocktail served at sunset taste good if no one is there to like it on Instagram?

The Exclusive Caribbean Hotel that Redefines the Meaning of All-Inclusive

January 2019 The closest thing to paradise. What does paradise look like? If it includes white sandy beaches, unlimited Pina Coladas and lobster on tap then let me tell you, it exists.

Petit St Vincent (PSV to regulars) is a private island at the Southernmost tip of the Grenadines that sums up the very essence of a luxury holiday cliche in every way but one…it's all inclusive. Dismiss the image of Magaluf nights and Benidorm hotels for this is when inclusivity spells out relaxation without worry. From the moment one steps ashore (after a 50-minute seaplane from Barbados and a 15-minute speedboat from Union Island) and met with a cocktail and a private taxi tour of the 115-acre estate, the habit of carrying credit cards isn’t the only aspect of real life that one is quick to forget.
