On the hidden island of Bequia in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Bequia Beach Hotel is already well-known for being the top choice for first-time visitors. But now it might be the best decision any family could make for a luxurious Caribbean getaway.
The property has added two brand-new luxury villas that accommodate up to 12 guests. The new residences, collectively known as Grenadine Hills, are situated on the turquoise waters of Friendship Bay. Guests staying in the villas have full access to the hotel’s amenities, including the signature flight service, Bequia Air, that gives guests extra time on the beach with frequent flights from Barbados and St. Lucia.
Villa ONE is a 7,000-sq. ft. residence with six en-suite bedrooms. The outdoor dining gazebo, lounge, and garden jacuzzi provide spectacular 180-degree views of Mustique, Petit Nevis, and Friendship Bay. Parties of eight to 10 guests can book Coral Hill, a 6,000-sq. ft. villa with five en-suite bedrooms.
The villas are impeccably decorated with furnishings by Restoration Hardware and include an infinity pool, gym suite, and private butler and maid services. A third villa, Rock Villa, is slated to open in early 2023.
Bequia Beach Hotel already spoils guests with the spa and fitness center, and the water sports center offers paddleboards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, surfboards, and fishing equipment, all of which can be accessed by visitors to Grenadine Hills. The resort also boasts a new saltwater infinity pool with a soothing coconut palm shower for some apres-sun relief.
Onsite dining offers a diverse selection of cuisines. The beachfront restaurant Bagatelle features internationally inspired dishes with classic Caribbean influences where guests can enjoy live music. Blue Tropic is a more intimate restaurant offering classic Italian fare. Jack’s Beach Bar is a famous island institution serving original cocktails and fresh local seafood.
The cherry on top is the Star of the Sea, a 35-meter superyacht, which guests can charter to explore the Grenadine paradise islands of Mustique, Mayreau, and Tobago Cays. As many as 12 guests can stay in the vessel’s six en-suite cabins with a fully-staffed crew.
