Grenadine House Add-On
As each of the Grenadine Islands is topographically different, many guests enjoy spending some time hopping around. Bequia Beach Hotel’s sister property Grenadine House on the island of St. Vincent is offering guests a three-night “Explore” package which includes accommodations for two in a garden view room, daily continental breakfast, welcome drinks and a two-course dinner with wine, plus one full-day island tour of choice with lunch. The Leeward Island tour visits the lush green side of St. Vincent. Highlights include seeing some of the sites where the popular Pirates of the Caribbean movie was filmed; Mt. Wynn, a beautiful black sand beach; and the Dark View Falls, a gorgeous waterfall cascading down a high cliff into two pools which are great for a refreshing dip. The scenic Windward Island tour highlights include colorful Montreal Estate Gardens, which feature a wide range of tropical plants and flowers plus superb views of the coast, plantations and surrounding tropical rainforest; fascinating volcanic rock formations at Owia Salt Pond; and a look at the site of the new Argyle International Airport, to be completed in September 2014.
Set in residential Kingstown Park overlooking Kingstown, Grenadine House offers the best of “Vincy” hospitality in 20 comfortable rooms. The hotel, which also has a bar, restaurant and pool, was originally known as “The Great House” and was built in 1765 as the residence of the British Administrator of the island of Saint Vincent.
The three-night “Explore” package is $950 per couple for travel through December 31. For more information or to book, visit www.grenadinehouse.com or call 1-866-659-8351.
