Fodor's Expert Review Palm Island Resort & Spa
Palm Island, VC0470, St. Vincent and the Grenadines Fodor's Choice
Perfect for a honeymoon, rendezvous, or chic escape, this palm-studded resort (mainly adults-only) offers peace and tranquility—along with five dazzling white-sand beaches, a calm aquamarine sea for swimming and water sports, nature trails for quiet walks, a pool with a waterfall, sophisticated dining, impeccable service, and exquisite accommodations. Picture-perfect Casuarina Beach runs the entire length of the western side of the island. Choose a beachfront room, a palm-view room in the garden, a huge Seagrape suite, or a rustic island loft overlooking the sea. All have wicker and bamboo furniture, rich fabrics, and original art created by underwater and marine artist, Patrick Chevailler, M.D. (who lived on Palm Island for years until relocating to Bequia.) The beachfront rooms have a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, with a sliding glass door, to maximize the view. A pair of two-bedroom private villas—perfect for two couples vacationing together—are spacious, secluded, and modern. They come with their own golf cart and a lightly stocked kitchen (the all-inclusive meal plan applies). The Royal Palm dining room, for guests only, offers a varied menu; the Sunset Grill and Bar near the dock serves seafood, light fare, and drinks and is open to the public for lunch and for dinner by reservation. Lunch can be delivered to a secluded picnic site (additional charge) with hammocks and an ocean view. Hop on the resort's own Pink Lady sloop (additional charge) for a trip to the Tobago Cays and Mayreau for snorkeling and a beach lunch or a sunset champagne cruise (winter only).
The snorkeling is great right outside beachfront rooms 15 and 16.
