What are you waiting for?
An intimate special boutique hotel offering stunning 180 degree views from East to West, a panorama unmatched by any hotel in the Grenadines. This historic property, dating back to the 18th century, has been extensively renovated by the current owners who sailed into Bequia the first time on Christmas Eve in 1978. It offers guests the perfect balance between old and new and is surrounded by a natural and undisturbed environment like no other, yet is close to the best beaches and activities on the island.
