Forty miles south of St Vincent (the largest of the 32 islands in St Vincent and the Grenadines) lies beautifully remote Petit St Vincent, the ultimate island hideaway. Go for escapism, a complete ‘digital detox’, total privacy and the opportunity to chill out on amazing tropical beaches.
Petit St Vincent Private Island – or simply PSV as it’s known to its devotees – is a rare gem, where you can truly unwind, away from the rest of the world. The 22 cottages and villas are spread out across 115 lush acres and ensure peace and quiet. There won’t be any distractions – apart from the gorgeous views. There are no telephones, televisions or wi-fi in the rooms, so go with the flow and relish the lack of interruptions from social media, emails and video calls and start reconnecting with your own agenda. If you don’t want to be disturbed, simply raise your red flag, or for attention – should you require room service or a lift elsewhere on the island on one of the resort’s Mini Mokes – use the yellow flag. It’s a simple and efficient system.
If you opt for a one-bedroom cottage, you can choose from one in the hills or on the beach, while two-bedroom villas are all beachfront. Each has a living room, indoor and outdoor dining areas and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors opening to a large wooden sun deck with loungers and a hammock. Creature comforts include a Bose iPod docking station, a Nespresso coffee machine and air-con.
Being here is about enjoying lazy days that will leave you feeling rejuvenated. Sip your morning coffee on your deck, a perfect start to the day, and then relax and read a good book on your sun lounger in the afternoon – hard to beat. Feeling restless? Then strolls along the beach or into the woodlands, windsurfing, kayaking and scuba-diving, or snorkelling trips in the Tobago Cays may be the plan. And there’s also tennis if you can find a partner, after which you could head to the spa, where expert Balinese therapists deliver treatments in open-air rooms.
Food here is a treat. The main restaurant offers fine dining from locally caught fish, seafood dishes and boozy desserts laced with rum. For a more casual affair, head to the beach restaurant and bar, a great spot to hang out for lunch and stay through until sundowners and watch the sunset.
