Fodor's Expert Review Palm Island Resort

, Palm Island, VC0470, St. Vincent and the Grenadines Fodor's Choice

Perfect for a honeymoon, rendezvous, or chic escape, this palm-studded resort island offers peace and tranquility, along with five dazzling white-sand beaches, a calm aquamarine sea for swimming and water sports, nature trails for quiet walks, a pool with waterfall, sophisticated dining, impeccable service, and exquisite accommodations. Picture-perfect Casuarina Beach runs the entire length of the western side of the island. Choose a beachfront room, a palm-view room in the garden, a huge Seagrape suite (both ideal for families), or a remote island loft set on stilts that overlooks the sea. All have wicker and bamboo furniture, rich fabrics, and original art created by a resident underwater and marine artist, Patrick Chevailler, M.D. The beachfront rooms have wooden louvered windows (with screens) on three walls to catch every breeze. A pair of two-bedroom private villas—perfect for two couples vacationing together—are spacious, secluded, and modern. They come with their own golf cart and a lightly stocked kitchen (the all-inclusive meal plan applies). The Royal Palm dining room, for guests only, offers a varied menu; the Sunset Grill and Bar near the dock serves seafood, light fare, and drinks and is open to the public for lunch and for dinner by reservation only. Lunch can be delivered to a secluded picnic site with hammocks and an ocean view. Rent the resort's own Pink Lady sloop or hop on the party-size catamaran to the Tobago Cays and Mayreau for snorkeling and a beach lunch or a sunset champagne cruise (winter only).
