The Old Fort has been featured this year in Travel Channel's new show called "Island Secrets"
The Old Fort is the only fully restored historic plantation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, dating back to before 1763 (that's the earliest established date from ancient maps) when French settlers started migrating to the Caribbean. It is ideal for guests that seek something different to the ordinary, those that want utmost relaxation in a special and magical location. We have been recommended by various international publications as the perfect place to go to unwind, boasting an exceptional venue that can also host any special events such as a wedding or romantic honeymoon.
Extremely private yet only minutes away from the best beaches, we are proud to offer hard-to-find classical ambiance in a beautiful natural setting. The Old Fort Historic Estate has a breath-taking location on the top of a large undisturbed estate that stretches over several hillsides down to the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Spectacular views, one can only dream of, overlook the horizon and the numerous Eastern and Southern Grenadine Islands. Not only can one see Bequia's close neighbour, chic Mustique which according to many can be quite uninspiring, but on a clear day also distant Grenada, which lies over 50 miles away.
The Old Fort reflects plantation house roots and has a total of eight low-key lux rooms. Numerous indoor and outdoor sitting areas allow you to enjoy island living to the fullest! There are many activities to choose from, for instance hiking through one of the many nature trails that takes you through the estate down to a private beach, or simply just enjoy the grand pool, which according to Gully Wells, who is one of the senior writers for magazines such as Condé Nast Traveller, "is one of the most beautiful in the world".
Large plantation buildings rebuilt from an ancient ruin, a historic sugar mill restored and turned into luxurious accommodations, elegant suites located in various areas of the expansive property, an assortment of balconies and terraces from where one can enjoy sweeping views along all the Grenadine Islands, a grand swimming pool with waterfall, a separate kids pool with grotto, an open air & inside bar, a club room lounge with massive sitting area and fireplace, beautiful custom-designed showers, large lush inside and outside gardens, numerous patios and dining areas, grand living areas with high open ceilings, several different nature trails leading through the estate to several amazing viewing spots located just above the ocean, two beautiful beaches (One black sand, one white sand) only a short hike away, tame pet donkeys, dogs and cats (Kids love them), and a trained courteous staff, including our recognized kitchen with its delicious menus and numerous international as well as local specialties.
