Petit St Vincent’s accommodation is comprised of just 22 exclusive cottages which promise seclusion and privacy, either set on the beach or on the hillside. All are constructed in native stone that was quarried from the island itself, ensuring that buildings blend comfortably into the unique landscape. The cottages and villas are spacious and furnished with handcrafted teak and driftwood furniture, opening on to private wooden decks complete with day beds and large hammocks. Sliding glass doors allow guests to enjoy the cooling sea breezes while air conditioning provides extra comfort.
Free from Wi-Fi and mobile phones, the established Petit St. Vincent communication system relies on the traditional use of flags - guests will find room service menus in their cottages including that evening's dinner menu, so if they require anything they can hoist the yellow flag to indicate that they require service. A member of staff will soon arrive in a moke (the unique vehicles used on the island) pick up your message and return with your order at the time that you want it. Early morning coffee, breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner can all be served in your room or be delivered to one of the hammocks that are dotted around the island, all at no extra charge. This promises complete freedom and allows guests to stay in and around their cottage for the duration of their holiday if they wish!

Petit St Vincent is remote, exclusive and simply beautiful - it's very hard to describe just how perfect the island is and how relaxed you feel after just a few minutes here!
The cottages are extremely private, set apart from each other on the beachfront or on the hillside with a terrace, sun loungers and hammock so you really feel like you're staying on your own deserted island. All accommodation is designed and furnished to a very high standard with huge French doors to make the most of the spectacular views, and charming touches such as delicious home baked cookies.
The service is friendly and attentive - anything you wish for is provided just when you want it, from breakfast in your cottage to lunch in a secluded hammock on the beach. It feels like you could quite easily go for days without seeing any other guests if you wish! The cuisine is exceptional, both at the casual restaurant which is right on the beach, and at the elegant hillside restaurant where dinner is served.
If you can drag yourself away from your cottage, try your hand at some of the watersports that are available - friendly staff at the watersports centre are happy to help whether you wish to snorkel, paddle board or go sailing. The hillside spa is a relaxing setting for treatments with Balinese therapists.
