Fodor's Expert Review Friendship Bay Beach Resort

, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Lars and Magrit Abrahamsson left their busy lives in Sweden back in the mid-1990s and became hoteliers on Bequia. Their sprawling hillside complex hugs the east end of a mile-long (1½-km-long) arc of white-sand beach on Friendship Bay. Accommodations in the main building are decorated in contemporary style, and every room has a sweeping view of the sea. Oceanfront rooms are decorated in island style with outdoor showers and terraces that are steps from the beach. Two stunning executive suites each have a plunge pool and an outdoor shower in a secret garden. The open-air Moskito Bar and Restaurant serves seafood and creole cuisine. On Saturday night there's a barbecue and jump-up, and the rope-swing seats at the bar will keep you upright even after a potent rum punch. Day rates are available for boaters who pull up to the dock.
