Located 40 miles south of St Vincent in the Grenadines, a group of islands scattered across one of the most beautiful stretches of the Caribbean, lies Petit St Vincent – or PSV for short. As part of the Windward island chain, the Grenadines drift southwesterly from St Vincent which, as the largest of the islands, forms the hub and centre of the Caribbean nation of St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Petit St Vincent is a true paradise of soft rolling hills surrounded by 2 miles of white sandy beaches. The island encompasses 113 acres and is the home of 22 simple yet elegant cottages, offering luxury and convenience but without the distractions of modern life.
A true testament to relaxation, PSV lies off the beaten track and is not crowded with tourists. It could perhaps be best described by what is not there. There is no airport, no formal check in, no keys and no televisions or telephones in the cottages to allow you to properly get away from the strains and stresses of back home.
Of the 22 newly renovated cottages and villas spread out for maximum privacy and comfort, 16 are one bedroom with separate living rooms, dressing areas, and completely new bathrooms and shower facilities. Coming perhaps from the noisy, stress-filled world, waking up to the morning sounds of a private island is soothing: waves, birds and breezes greet you without the disruption of modernity. No TV, phones or Internet in the cottages give you ample room to enjoy the company of a good book, your own thoughts or a loved one.
Built of native stone and wood, and discreetly scattered over hillsides, cliffs and beaches, these cottages make you feel more like a guest in someone’s home rather than a tourist in a resort. Each one has stunning views of the breathtaking vistas of Petit St. Vincent and the southern Grenadines, while offering tranquility and privacy.
All cottages are outfitted with American standard power outlets with output of 110V, 60Hz. Some creature comforts have been added: refrigerated minibars, Nespresso coffeemakers, Bose iPod docks, quiet bedroom air-conditioning units, blow-dryers, and irons are standard in every cottage. The office can supply outlet adaptors on request. High quality linens, furniture, fixtures, and lighting are in place to ensure you feel cozy.
The 6 beachfront, two-bedroom villas offer more than 1100 square feet of luxury. Each bedroom has its own large bathroom. The master room boasts a king size bed and the second room is outfitted with two queen size beds.
Main Resturant -
At the elegant main restaurant and bar overlooking the harbor, you can expect a fresh and varied menu cooked to perfection by our executive chef and his team.
While centered on locally caught or grown ingredients, the menu includes imported high quality meats and other items that you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere in these islands. We will do our best to accommodate dietary requests and substitute ingredients when available. Ultimately we pledge to deliver a satisfying range of choices to please the most discerning palates and offer healthy, good food.The original iconic bar with its new adjacent wine cellar ensures you can whet your appetite with no shortage of fine wines and spirits on offer.
For dinner the dress code is smart casual but jackets are never required and informal elegance reigns.
Beach Resturant -
Our new beach bar and restaurant allows guests and visitors alike to mingle over late lunches, or even later cocktail drinks, under thatched roofs and palm trees, feet in the sand right at the water’s edge. Here we serve light fare inspired by the tides and honoring local Caribbean ingredients, as well as traditional comfort foods.
This place whispers laid back relaxation and barefoot elegance. If you want the convivial company of fellow guests and visiting yachtsmen come down in the evenings when the harbor hosts sailboats stopping by and you may meet a character or two ready to share a good story.
It is also the perfect spot on the island to watch a fiery, orange and purple-tinted sundown.
The West End beach is a place of quiet relaxation and seclusion. The beach barbecue area here hosts weekly feasts of freshly caught sea fare and other goodies.
A staffed bar with daytime service exclusively for island guests enhances the unobtrusive and attentive service we offer. All you have to do now is wave or stroll a few steps to grab a refreshing drink while continuing to gaze into the deep blues and greens of the surrounding vistas.
If the gazing gets intense or captivating, you don’t have to move a finger. Just tell us in advance what you’d like and we’ll deliver your meals from the main or the beach restaurants.
In keeping with the long established Petit St. Vincent tradition, our unique flag communication system remains in place. Every day from 7am to 8pm Hoist the Yellow Flag and one of our Butlers will pass by in a Mini-Moke car and pick up your message. Whether it be a breakfast, lunch or dinner room service request, sundown drinks or even a ride to the spa for a massage, whatever you wish, at no extra charge. Hoist the Red Flag, this signals ‘Do Not Disturb’ and our team will leave you alone to enjoy the peace and tranquility that your cottage has to offer.
