St Vincent and the Grenadines, Caribbean
An enchanting island paradise, once the home of a Carib Indian chief according to legend, Young Island is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Virtually a tropical garden, it consists of 13 acres, home to giant almond, mango, coffee and breadfruit trees. At the heart of it all is the Young Island Hotel, overlooking a beautiful stretch of golden sand. Here, hammocks hang under thatched roofs and the cooling trade winds are ever constant. As is only right when residing on a Caribbean island, non-motorised water sports are offered, including kayaking, pedaloes and dinghy sailing. Just offshore is the Coconut Bar where drinks are served in fresh coconuts — you can swim there and back. Dining at Young Island is a truly romantic experience with meals taken under thatched kiosks near the beach. A sumptuous four-course meal is prepared five nights a week by award-winning chefs with fresh seafood always on the menu. On Wednesdays, it's a local buffet meal and on Saturday, you'll enjoy a barbeque and buffet. Each meal offers six loaves of freshly baked bread — white, coconut, banana, raisin, cinnamon and wheat — it’s a real treat and one they are justly famous for. A fabulous freshwater swimming pool is perfect for cooling dips and there is tennis available day and night on a floodlit court. Spacious, cottage style accommodation is either close to the beach or on a hillside with breathtaking panoramic views.
