Following its annual closure for refurbishment, Petit St. Vincent, the 115-acre island resort in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, will welcome guests for its 49th season starting on 1 November 2017.
The private island resort with 22 one- and two-bedroom cottages and villas, and a staff-to-guest ratio of 3:1, will kick off the season with a special ‘Seven for Five’ winter offer from 1 November – 19 December, saving guests 25% off regular rates.
The 2017/18 season will see the return of Petit St. Vincent’s culinary events, including a wine tasting and cooking instruction week with Milbrandt Vineyards, beer tastings with West Indies Beer and barrel-aged rum tasting sessions. In addition, the island’s Jean-Michel Cousteau team of dive instructors is working with the Philip Stephenson Foundation and Clear Caribbean to implement a coral restoration nursery and reef monitoring project.
With just one change in ownership in the past 49 years, Petit St. Vincent has no televisions, telephones or wireless connections in the cottages. The flagpole communication system has been in place since opening in 1968: raise the yellow flag for room service, raise the red flag for ‘do not disturb’.
The ‘Seven for Five’ offer starts from $2,750 (£2,084) per person, based on two sharing a one-bedroom cottage. Prices are for seven nights and include the following for two: three meals daily, morning coffee and afternoon tea, unlimited room service and the use of the island’s non-motorised watersports. Regular rates for a one-bedroom cottage start at $550 (£416) per person per night based on double occupancy.
