I booked a four night stay at PSV as part of a wider St.Vincent and the Grenadines honeymoon itinerary and it exceeded all expectations. Working in the luxury travel industry I have been fortunate enough to stay in some fabulous hotels with my career and am always intrigued to see if luxury hotels like PSV live up to the hype.
This was definitely one of our honeymoon highlights, the resort is not only in one of the most spectacular settings in the world, tucked away in the Grenadines by the Tobago Cays, it feels entirely authentic and not incongruous to its surroundings. The beach villas feel totally private and tucked away and the wild atlantic views offer beautiful sunrises when you wake up at 5am with jetlag!
The whole island is very tropical with lovely walking, hiking and running options. It's much less fake and manicured than some of the resorts I've stayed in in the Maldives. On the other side of the island the views of the neighbouring island and yachts bobbing in the harbour make for a blissful lunch spot.
Like any brilliant luxury resort what makes the holiday is the people and the staff here were absolutely fantastic. We felt totally spoilt and looked after, but in a very relaxed and authentic Caribbean way. This island is a little piece of heaven and somewhere that you can escape the world, turn off your phone (there is no wifi, meaning no other guests watching videos on the phones at the next table during dinner - the dream!) and reconnect with nature and really unwind.
Highly, highly recommend!
Our experience at PSV was beyond all of our expectations. We absolutely fell in love with the resort and staff. It is difficult for us to travel in the winter due to the nature of my spouse’s business, thus we made the trip down to PSV from Florida In early July. Expecting the weather to be the same as home, what a treat we experienced with the warm arid climate. Petite St Vincent.
My 7 year daughter can not stop talking about our experiences at the resort, we are looking forward to returning next year. The food is very good, the accommodations rustic elegance, yet the service from the lovely staff simply put our family vacation as our best trip to date . There is snorkeling, hiking, enjoying the stunning scenery, a world class spa, &&& no tv!
I am extremely prone to motion sickness & even though the last couple legs of our journey to this piece of paradise was bumpy— I would do it all again several times over. We CAN NOT wait to return.
