My Experience on Petit St. Vincent (PSV)

Jump to last reply

My husband & I just returned from a 9-day stay at Petit St. Vincent (PSV). We found it to be an experience, not simply a vacation, and a stunning one at that. Beauty to touch and see was everywhere:

The thick blanket of stars at night (viewed best, we found, with the lights off, nightcap in hand, on the lounge chairs on our VERY private patio)?.

The teal green Caribbean Sea (enjoyed from a swaying hammock in a private ?beach hut? set up along the shore, each also equipped with two lounge chairs and a table & chairs set-perfect for eating lunch delivered to you by the staff at your request)?

The breeze (which we often couldn?t help but enjoy with our arms outstretched, face to the sky)?

We slept, read (the lending library on the island was great), ate, um..lingered in bed, had wacky conversations, sang songs (there was a radio with one station but we didn?t know the words to the island tunes it played and when singing a cappella we prefer a Beatles tune). No television to distract. No telephone-if you needed something you got it soon enough by raising a flag by your cottage (helping you break any instant gratification habits that you may have.)

The resort does not guarantee cottage numbers prior to arrival. They are all beautiful and private, they will let you change if you feel you JUST MUST once you get there and, frankly, it just doesn?t matter. There is a ?bigger picture? here-the room is just one non-airconditioned component (albeit a very, very nice one.) Same with the food. It was, mostly, very good and inventive. And when it wasn?t we asked for a second rum punch.

This place isn?t for everyone and I can completely understand a penchant for a more active/fancy vacation. But if this sounds at all interesting gather your bathing suit, a few nice but casual outfits for dinner (where men really do wear long pants) and a can of bug spray (this is a pretty natural place, no massive resort-type bug fogging here) and GO?..
