Palm Island Resort & Spa, The Grenadines


See On Map »

Palm Island Resort is an island in the heart of the Grenadines about a mile from Union Island, where guests have access to five magical beaches with bright white sand merging into vibrant turquoise seas. The all-inclusive resort offers a laid back, luxurious holiday on an island which only accessible by boat, giving a hideaway feeling that starts from the moment you dock.
Palm Island was named 'St Vincent & the Grenadines' Leading Boutique Hotel' and 'St Vincent & the Grenadines' Leading Spa Resort' at the 2016 World Travel Awards.

Palm Island consists of only 43 rooms, suites and villas dotted across the island, some with views through the gardens towards the beach and many with views of the sea; all having a private terrace or wrap around deck. Most accommodation is furnished in a simple, typically Caribbean manner, while the beachfront suites are set to be refurbished in a more contemporary, beach chic style. Island Lofts are spacious wooden cottages, set on stilts either just back from the beach or overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, while a small number of spacious villas are found in secluded locations across the island.

There are two restaurants on Palm Island which are both open sided to make the most of the setting. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Royal Palm Restaurant serves a range of international cuisine using local produce where possible, and hosts live music most evenings.  A more casual choice is The Sunset Restaurant, set right on the sand and serving lunch daily and dinner on certain evenings.  For something special, a private beach picnic can be organised and set up on one of the more isolated beaches.

Guests at Palm Island Resort may spend their days by the lagoon style pool or on beachfront sun loungers, taking in the stunning sea views. Those in search of activity can go snorkelling in the warm Caribbean waters, take part in a range of non motorised watersports or explore the island on foot or by bicycle. Rocky trails lead up small hills which boast panoramic views across the island and out to sea, while shady hammocks are located in secluded beachside spots. 
Due to its location in the heart of the Grenadines, guests are in a prime position to visit the surrounding islands so we suggest an evening sunset cruise, a lobster lunch at Petit St Vincent and a day snorkelling the Tobago Cays. This is a world renowned snorkeling and dive spot known for its extensive marine life including turtles.

In June 2016 Palm Island opened a new beachfront spa overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. It has two treatment rooms, one of which has a jacuzzi on the terrace, perfect for stargazing or watching the sunset over the Grenadines. The spa is offering two product lines; Aromatherapy and their all natural Blue Naturals range which contains Hibiscus, also known as 'Botox of the Caribbean.' They offer a variety of relaxing treatments, a perfect addition to your relaxing holiday at Palm Island Resort.

With much birdlife, ground lizards and iguanas among fan palms, hibiscus and over 2,000 coconut palm trees, Palm Island Resort offers a true Caribbean experience in the Grenadines. 

Palm Island Resort & Spa will be closed for renovations and upgrades between 1 July - 31 August 2017.

Our Opinion

Palm Island is unbelievably beautiful, with vibrant turquoise seas and perfect white sand beaches lined by swaying palm trees.
Wherever you are staying, the stunning beach is never far away. Most of the accommodation is simple and typically Caribbean, while the beachfront suites are being refurbished in 2017 to become more contemporary.

If you can bear to drag yourself away from the beach, take a bicycle to explore the small island where iguanas roam freely and hillside trails boast remarkable views over the resort and out to sea. It takes just 5 minutes to cycle from one end of the island to the other. When you’re in need of some shade, hunt out one of the hammocks which are found in beautiful, secluded spots around the island – some breezier than others!

I would also recommend a visit to the spa, a recent addition to the resort which is set on a picture perfect stretch of beach with friendly therapists who use the spa’s own products, flavoured either with hibiscus or frangipani.

Last but not least, make sure you take advantage of the island’s spectacular setting and take a boat trip to the Tobago Cays for a spot of snorkelling with turtles – a wonderful experience!
