Palm Island Resort Palm Island Grenadines - LPI001

This idyllic tropical hideaway is situated near the southern tip of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, an idyllic archipelago of 32 tropical islands and cays known for its stunning natural beauty and clear, warm waters.

Five white sand beaches that lay on these natural, untouched surroundings compliment the resorts charmingly tailored 43 guest rooms. Enjoy the delicious, fresh and locally-grown Euro-Caribbean cuisine while dining beachfront style, or partake in the array of low-key activities that the sand and sea have to offer.

Besides being a resort, Palm Island is a tranquil place that invites our guests to slow down, recharge their batteries and gradually rediscover the wonders of nature. Iguanas and interesting birdlife are natives along the panoramic walking trails, while authentic island life is portrayed through yachts and traditional beach homes. Furthermore, you can drift away on boat trips to the world-famous Tobago Cays to ensure a great sense of place.

Yachtsmen and divers from around the world gravitate to this strand of unspoiled Caribbean islands, lured by exotic sea life, rainbow-colored reefs and fascinating shipwrecks.

Over the past year, all aspects of the resort’s culinary experience have been upgraded, including menu offerings, presentation and service. The resort’s menu changes based on season and availability, incorporating locally grown herbs and produce, some of which are from the on-property greenhouse. These ingredients are also used in new flavor-infused waters and cocktails. fruit popsicles are served during peak hours each day at the beach and along pool areas.

Another new local food and beverage initiative is the resort’s coconut program. With more than 2,000 coconut-bearing trees spread across the 135-acre island, Palm Island naturally provides a seemingly endless supply of coconuts. This local, naturally beneficial product is now harvested and incorporated into the daily rotating menu. Sample breakfast items include coconut-flavored bread, waffles and pancakes. Lunch and dinner items include coconut rice and peas, coconut shrimp, coconut layer cake, coconut macaroons and more, all made with local Palm Island coconuts.

Coconut leaves are also used in a new weekly hat-making class, and the resort’s boutique additionally features handmade soaps, jewelry and other handicrafts made from coconut by local craftsmen.

New offerings have also been added to the daily activity program and excursions, including volleyball and cricket matches, a presentation on the history of the island and weekly receptions. The most popular is our Crab Racing each Thursday where the funds are collected for different charities causes. For action-seeking guests, the thrill of kitesurfing and the beauty of stand-up paddle boarding are now just a ten-minute boat ride away at the JT Pro Center, founded by professional kitesurfer Jeremie Tronet.

Ideal for romantic escapes, girlfriend getaways, mother- daughter retreats as well as solo travelers, this intimate hideaway has only 41 guestrooms and two private villas. More than half of the 43 accommodations are set directly on the beach while the rest are located just a few steps away.

18/8 -My husband and I had a wonderful honeymoon on Palm Island. The location was beautiful, the food was great, and the staff was very accommodating. We highly recommend it for anyone going on a honeymoon or looking for a romantic getaway!

18/8/15 Visited Palm Island in June with 2 other couples. Every good review you have read is right! The staff and food is amazing! No matter what you need, everyone goes out of their way to assist you. Can't wait to go back.

14/8 The journey is well worth it! You fly to Barbados, then to Union Island, then take a short boat ride to Palm Island. Once you get there you will never want to leave. The water is crystal clear! The food is excellent and the staff is among the best in the Caribbean. They will do whatever it takes to ensure you have a memorable vacation. We are already planning our next visit.

14/8 After 2 years in another Carib island resort that has sadly become too commercial, it was time to find another resort. With trepidation I began. Finding Palm Island was nothing short of a miracle. As with everyone else, I worried that it could not be as good as portrayed. How wrong could I be, it far outweighed anything I could have dreamt. Thank you Palm Family, you are awesome. Virgin Airlines managed to delay our flight by an hour and a half, which meant that we missed our connecting flight, but the Palm rep at Barbados quickly resolved the problem and managed to still get us to the island the same day. The flight in to Union is an adventure on its own, but all the hassle of the journey fades as you step ashore onto this perfect Island. We were met by Troy and taken to our beach front room. It really was beach front, no more than 20 foot from the water! It was idyllic. Clean and well equipped for 2 weeks of uninterrupted swimming and snorkelling. Our favourite excursion was a trip to Tobago Cays aboard Pink Lady, a truly memorable day. Swimming with stingrays, turtles and a million beautiful fish was just incredible, to say nothing of the barbecue on the beach. The evening entertainment is in keeping with the Island and is local. No entertainments team here! If you are really lucky, as we were, it will also involve sea turtles hatching or eggs being laid. I could go on and on but I could never really tell you how perfect it is. That you have to find out for yourself. The only downside is the flight to Barbados and back from. Next year I will try to find an airline that flies Boeings there, the Airbus is just too uncomfortable. Thank you Palm Island Family - Deb McKay. We will be back.

14/8 Exactly what was required, an island paradise with attentive staff, good food, hammock no 4 and a trip to the Tobago Cays to swim with turtles and rays. Excellent. Made to feel very welcome and everything we asked for or about was taken care of efficiently and with a smile.
