Fodor's Expert Review Canouan Resort at Carenage Bay

Carenage Bay, Canouan, VC0450, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

At this full-service beach resort, the roomy villas and suites are sprinkled around 200 acres of the 1,200-acre property. Villas can be configured as two- to six-bedroom suites, and each suite offers superb decor, amenities, and ocean views; a handful have a private plunge pool. Guests use golf carts, one assigned per suite, to get around the property. Center stage is an 18th-century Anglican stone church (popular for resort weddings), along with three restaurants, lounges, boutiques, a modern health club, a hair salon, meeting rooms, kids club, and a golf pro shop. As your backdrop, pick the beach, the sea, the mountains, or the Grenadines Estates Golf Club—an 18-hole, Jim Fazio–designed, par-72 course touted as one of the best in the Caribbean. The resort's stunning spa has nine private treatment suites, each with its own bath and changing room and a private ocean-view terrace with a Jacuzzi, all accessed by a two-person funicular.
