Mandarin Oriental is making its debut in the sunny Caribbean.
The luxury brand has taken over the management of the Pink Sands Club on the island of Canouan in the Grenadines, while it will be rebranded as Mandarin Oriental, Canouan next year.
Known as the island of tortoises, Canouan is one of the Caribbean’s most sought-after luxury destinations.
Pink Sands Club, Canouan, located on the northern end of the island, sits along an idyllic stretch of Godhal Beach, which is protected by a large natural coral reef.
The hotel features 26 suites and 12 three-to-four-bedroom villas, all with full ocean views.
Each ground floor suite has a private garden leading to the beach just steps away, while first floor suites feature expansive, fully furnished, sea-view balconies.
There are four two-bedroom suites with identical bedrooms, each with their own master bath and his-and-hers walk-in closets.
The three-storey Lagoon Villas are nestled into the hillside with impressive views over the lagoon and coral reef; each villa has an infinity pool and patio area for private dining experiences.
Dining options at Pink Sands Club, Canouan include the resort’s two fine dining restaurants, Romeo and Juliet, which offer inventive and exquisitely prepared cuisine.
The spa at Pink Sands Club, Canouan has nine palapa-style treatment rooms nestled on a hillside with dramatic ocean views and the soothing sound of the sea.
The resort also has a fully equipped fitness centre with treadmills, weights, stationary bikes and Pilate’s equipment.
The introduction of Mandarin Oriental will be a major addition to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, which earlier this year debuted its new international airport.
Canouan is accessible by the hotel’s private jets and by flights from both Barbados and St. Vincent.
