This 30-room luxury boutique hotel is located in an isolated cove with a quiet, tranquil white-sand beach. The light, airy suites feature contemporary decor and stylish bathrooms, and some offer private plunge pools. This family-operated property offers some personal touches, such as private breakfast served on your room’s deck. Two well-regarded restaurants, a pool, fitness center and spa with sweeping views are available, though most guests are content to relax on the palm-tree-shaded sand.
The unique, artistic design of this 11-room boutique hotel helps it stand out against the upscale competition. Each room is different, and has unique features such as a hidden bathroom, private outdoor shower, or a bathtub framed by a crescent-shaped window overlooking the bay. With a maximum capacity of just 22 guests, the hotel is very serene and intimate -- guests and staff tend to get to know each other. The overall vibe is very polished and modern, but still relaxed. However, for true beach bums, the man-made beachfront area may be a drawback.
Mount Cinnamon, an upscale boutique hotel tucked away on a hillside perched over Grand Anse beach, features spacious villas and suites with colorful, contemporary decor. The self-catering rooms offer full kitchens and great views, but guests should be ready for a steep walk down to the beach. The resort's excellent beach cabana area is its stand-out feature, providing a relaxed oasis with comfortable loungers and daybeds, a bar and cafe, and games in a lovely garden
This seven-room, upscale boutique resort features one- and two-bedroom self-catering villas in a lush, jungle-like setting. The artfully rustic villas feature natural wood finishes, beautiful, well-stocked kitchens, and -- most importantly -- picturesque decks with private hot tubs and great views. Down a steep hill, there is a spacious beachfront restaurant and bar, as well as a quiet, tranquil beach.
The Lance Aux Epines Cottages offers four apartments and seven quaint cottages on a lovely, peaceful beach. The laid-back, welcoming atmosphere of this value hotel harkens to an earlier time, a time before email and social media -- as do the '70s-style buildings and slightly dated furnishings. Though it lacks resort amenities such as a pool, bar or restaurant, features like the friendly Sunday beach barbecue will make guests feel like part of the family at Lance Aux Epines.
A bumpy back road leads to this eclectic, posh but laid-back boutique resort tucked away on a steep, leafy hillside on a peaceful, secluded beach. Laluna Hotel’s blend of Indonesian (teak daybeds, Balinese spa), Italian (pastas and wine), and breezy Caribbean elements mingle into a unique, effortless cool. The daily yoga classes, simple cottages, and organic garden help make this 16-room upscale resort the epitome of bohemian-chic.
This charming, friendly upper-middle-range hotel’s remote location makes it unique on the island. The 13 rooms are situated in natural gardens on a hill overlooking the sea, with views of the Grenadine islands, on the far north coast, over an hour from the airport. While the property is not luxurious, it is low-key and laid-back, and guests receive plenty of personal attention. Petite Anse feels like a well-kept secret, and it's a perfect respite for those looking for an escape from the pre-packaged, generic beach holiday.
This 48-room, upper-middle-range waterfront resort has many great features for families, including two outdoor play areas, two pools, and a small waterslide. The rooms are colorful and contemporary, with flat-screen TVs and small kitchenettes. Known for its vibrant hues and quirky features, like a tiny microbrewery, True Blue is unique and fun – but it's lacking a true beach. There is just a small man-made sandy area, or guests can take a shuttle over to Grand Anse for a day in the sand.
