I was blown away by this island and I know you will be too!
After an incredibly scenic journey, my partner and I were collected by our very own private boat and whisked away across the tranquil ocean. As we approached Petit St. Vincent, I was taken aback by the emerald protruding from the sea: lush verdant forests covering gentle hills, and the dazzling light of the white-sand beaches were winking at us, enticing us more as we got closer. We were made to feel like we were the only two people on the island! From the warm and friendly nature of the staff to the idyllic dream-like surroundings, we were in awe. I know it’s often referred to as the Maldives of the Caribbean, but in reality, it’s beyond comparison. Think Castaway, just with better company and luxury surroundings.
We were escorted to our stunning one-bedroom villa, and opened the doors to reveal a beautiful sanctuary, complete with beach views visible through the spectacular floor-to-ceiling glass doors, adorable sweet treats and exotic fruit bowls. Picturesque and private, this would be the ideal destination for a luxury honeymoon in the Caribbean. We descended the few steps together to the most perfect beach I’ve ever laid eyes on. There was no one else to be seen and as I felt the cool sea breeze on my face and the gentle waves caressing my ankles, I couldn’t hear anything other than the hush of the ocean. We knew there and then that we’d never find a place more serene than this. What could be a more perfect Caribbean honeymoon destination?
On our second day, we decided to take advantage of our all-inclusive package at the Petit St. Vincent and have breakfast in our room, mainly because we wanted to use the charming flag system that we had been told about when we arrived. If you needed any more proof that the staff are on the island solely to answer your every wish, this certainly does it. We walked just outside of the villa, raised the yellow flag and waited to be tended to by the devoted staff. A short while later, we were joined by a friendly butler and before long we had a delicious breakfast of our choice to eat in the lavish comfort of our villa.
After our mouth-watering meal, we headed down to the beach and again it was just us. The waters were a dazzling turquoise unlike any I’d seen before, so we headed to the boathouse to make use of the complimentary fins and snorkels on offer. We were swimming amongst the brightest tropical fish that we’d ever seen and were even treated to unbelievable close-up views of turtles. I spent the rest of the afternoon lounging in my beach hammock soaking up the sun while my partner kayaked and wind surfed to his heart’s content. For an unrivalled luxury beach holiday, or a luxury honeymoon in the Caribbean, I cannot recommend Petit St. Vincent enough.
Who knew that a couple’s yoga session could be so romantic or relaxing? We enjoyed a picturesque walk from our villa to the pavilion where we would be put through our paces and as we arrived we were faced with a captivating view of the topaz-hued ocean. Our exclusive lesson was led by one of PSV’s own instructors who made us feel completely at ease, even as beginners.
Carrying on with our quest for relaxation, we decided to visit the spa and sample one of the many exotic treatments on offer. Nestled in the lush verdant forestry was a wooden cabin of dream-like splendour. We opted for a couple’s warm stone massage and when we were shown to our open-air treatment room, we were stunned by the vibrancy of the emerald-hued trees and the bright cerulean ocean that melted together before our eyes. We left feeling weightless and relaxed beyond description.
One thing I knew for certain was that before we left this island wonderland, we had to indulge in one of the exclusive dining experiences. I asked the staff and, of course, my wish was their command and we were assured that they would take care of everything. We were transported in the lavish comfort of Petit St. Vincent's own stunning yacht to what must be the world’s tiniest and most gorgeous atoll. Awaiting us was a beautiful candle-lit table surrounded by twinkling lanterns, unlike anything I’d ever seen – so much more heavenly than any other dining experience. We were treated to sublime fresh caught and grilled lobster and a refreshing glass of crisp wine, with the dramatic and opulent pink sunset as our backdrop. As we indulged in this sumptuous bliss, I knew we’d never find a feeling like this anywhere else in the world.
