It’s one of the great fantasies of Caribbean travel: your own private island, teeming with white-sand beaches, edged by sparkling turquoise, just you and the wonder of the Caribbean Sea.
And for decades, that’s what Palm Island has been, the sought-after private-island destination in the heart of the Grenadines.
Even better? It’s also an all-inclusive resort, a unique combination in the Caribbean.
And now Palm Island, one of the jewels of the Elite Island Resorts portfolio, has unveiled a major new addition.
They call it the Seahorse Villa, and it’s a new bucket-list, toes-in-the-sand luxury destination in the Caribbean.
The 4,000-square-foot private retreat has two bedrooms in a setting right on the sand.
The interiors are filled with locally-crafted furniture, large wicker pendant shades, high-vaulted ceilings and lovely little touches.
There’s a large kitchen with a breakfast bar, one with shelving from salvaged ship masts; the living and dining areas are all designed for endless relaxation, with a large flat-screen and a surround sound system and sliding doors that open out right to the ultimate toes-in-the-sand experience.
Each of the two bedrooms has a super-king size bed, with ceiling fans, TVs, massive walk-in closets, a desk and a makeup table.
The bathrooms have double basins, plush robes and sarongs and large walk-in showers with handmade Mexican tile.
There’s even a fully-equipped laundry room with storage space.
There are even outdoor showers.
And as a guest, everything is all-inclusive, meaning you get access to all of the amenities at the resort: two restaurants, a world-class spa, a full gym and endless watersports.
But the ultimate amenity is your own private beach, a shimmering stretch of sparkling coastline that you can only find in the Grenadines, that you can only find on this rarefied corner of the 135-acre Palm Island.
