Looking for a private island oasis you can all your own? You may just find it at Mandarin Oriental, Canouan. This secluded island hideaway offers plenty of activities, as well as the finest spa in the Grenadines archipelago. Accessible via St Vincent or Barbados, come see why we’ve got our sights set on this Caribbean paradise.
#1 – It’s the ideal getaway
Mandarin Oriental, Canouan’s collection of just 26 elegant colonial-style suites and 13 chic villas are all spaced widely apart for privacy and safe social distancing – just one of the reasons the hotel has been designated a Bubble Resort by the St Vincent & the Grenadines Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment.
#2 – The resort is surrounded by a breathtaking coral reef
Mandarin Oriental, Canouan is flanked by the Caribbean’s largest living coral reef, just off the white powder stretch of Godahl Beach. Guests can experience for themselves the colorful coral formations, exotic marine life, and even giant boulders below sea level.
#3 – The activities
Mandarin Oriental, Canouan offers island-based excursions to neighboring Mayreau, Union, Bequia, and Mustique where you can snorkel among bright tropical fish and spot green sea turtles. A Jim Fazio-designed championship golf course is the only 18-hole course in St Vincent and the Grenadines, while back at the hotel you can pamper yourself at the Spa’s charming treatment suites, nestled in lush hillside overlooking the ocean.
#4 – Immaculate dining
The resort’s atmospheric restaurants offer a variety of culinary delights. Tides Bar + Grill offers Caribbean-flavored dishes served against a backdrop of hand-painted murals, while pan-Asian Asianne boasts an open tandoor oven; savor Peruvian-Nikkei cuisine at the Pool Bar, or seafood and tapas at the Lagoon Café.
#5 – The views
All the resort’s villas and suites have ocean vistas, though for an even better view you can climb the 877ft-tall Mount Royal. A guided hike will take you to the highest point on the island, offering spectacular lookouts over this idyllic island retreat.
