Bequia Beach Hotel

St Vincent and the Grenadines, Caribbean

The hotel

Your unspoilt slice of paradise, Bequia is rustic yet refined, and remote yet reachable. Just a quick flight from Barbados and St Lucia, it couldn’t be further from their tourist trappings – and Bequia Beach Hotel is the very epitome of its untouched beauty. Hidden away in tropical gardens of almond trees, mangos, limes, and papaya, which cradle two stunning pools, it’s not content with just sitting along the glorious sands of Friendship Beach, there's also nearby Princess Margaret Beach, where you can sit above cashmere sands at Jack’s Beach Bar, gazing out at distant boats. A complete one-off, the hotel’s filled with the owner’s travel mementoes, has unparalleled views of distant Grenadine islands, and brings you unforgettable dining by the beach at Bagatelle.

BBH is the most perfect hotel we have stayed in as a family of four. From the moment we arrived, we felt that the staff at the hotel genuinely cared that we had the best stay possible, nothing was too much trouble and everyone, from Mr Bengt, the owner, to the groundsmen meticulously trimming the manicured gardens, was warm, friendly and eager to share their passion for what they were doing. We left with heavy hearts as the reception staff waved us off. The kids made us promise to take them back, we cannot wait to return. Read less

We stayed over New Year in their standard garden view room. The gardens and overall hotel are really well maintained. While slightly off the main tourist area, its a short tax ride anywhere over the island and the hotel is more than happy to sort everything out for you. The food is good and the range is great. At times not everything was available from the menu or bar (missing mango or pizzas one day) which was a shame but there is plenty of choice still. They put on special menu nights which are a great addition. The two pools are warm and well maintained, large enough to do some proper swimming if you want to. A gym is available but there's not a huge amount of equipment, still enough to get a sweat on! There are watersports available free of charge which is a good addition (kayaks, snorkelling gear, paddle boards, body boards) The staff really make the place. They're all friendly and happy to help. At times the service at meals wasn't speedy, but you're on holiday after all! Perhaps some tweaking to organising and internal systems could avoid delays or small misses such as at breakfast time. However I must say that the beach (Friendship Bay) the hotel is on is incredible and the highlight. We've been to multiple islands but this is by far the best one yet. It's calm, shallow gradient (compared to some steep beaches we've been to) and some of the best snorkelling just meters from the shoreline. There was so much to see and even turtles! Thank you to the beach staff for pointing out where to go! The beach isn't private but very few people come to it so it's great to use. I would recommend the hotel to people. Read less

I booked this hotel as a special treat after a 7 night catamaran charter, a place to get our "land legs" back. We showed up dirty and exhausted. They greeted us at the door like family. We were immediately given ice cold hand towels and a drink. The property is exceptional, spectacular gardens, lovely restaurant and bar areas, beautiful furnishings, very well kept. Our little cottage was cool and spotless, well appointed, very comfortable king size bed. We stayed for 2 nights, enjoyed some fabulous meals, and everyone treated us very well. We used their private airline, Bequia Air, to fly to Barbados to catch our connecting flight home. Again they looked after every little detail, and the flight was quick and comfortable. They deliver excellence. It was truly a privilege to stay here. Read less

What a delightful place this is! A beautiful location directly on an unspoilt beach. The hotel is very well run with friendly efficient staff, rooms kept exceptionally clean. Good food and onsite entertainment most nights. Lots of boat trips on offer including Mustique and Tobago Quays. Also there are other superb beaches nearby which you can reach by their courtesy open air taxi service. Definitely worth going to Jacks Place on Princess Margaret’s Beach. Comfortable beds provided courtesy of the hotel. To summarise if you are seeking a chill out holiday somewhere to relax and unwind Bequia Hotel is the place to go. Just one tip watch out for the mosquitoes! Read less

This is our 3rd stay at the Bequia Beach hotel and they have once again delivered excellence. I have been fortunate enough to stay at some of the best hotels in various countries and I can honestly say that Bequia Beach hotel can hold its own on the world stage, so, here is my detailed review. Location The hotel is slightly off the main tourist area but Bequia is a small island and the location adds to the sense of exclusivity. Choose one of the sea front suites and you will practically be on the beach. Ambience With the lush tropical gardens, the carefully selected decorations and the general design of the villas and buildings, you feel as if you've been delivered a personal slice of paradise. You get the sense that everything was designed with you in mind. Food There is a fully stocked bar and an ample lunch and dinner menu from which to choose. Breakfast has everything you can want and they are happy to make you whatever type of eggs you desire. My only suggestion is, let there be more coconut water. Price You get what you pay for. The hotel is around the pricier end of the scale but it's not unreasonably priced. If you are used to expecting the finer things in life then this is where you want to stay. Service The staff are only too happy to help and will cater to your every need. We even had a complementary bottle of wine and a bottle of coconut water delivered to our room just because they knew that we liked coconut water. Conclusion I go to St. Vincent to visit family and we all know what that's like. But the first bit of our holidays is always with the Bequia beach hotel. They provide a holiday away from my holiday. It's the only place I will stay and I suggest you give it a try. Read less
