This boutique hotel is inspired by Oliver Messel’s stylish villas in Mustique - just nine miles west of Bequia - and surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, it combines luxury, elegance and lashings of Caribbean charm.
Located on Friendship Beach (aptly named because of the friendly nature of the island's inhabitants), many of the 43 rooms, suites and villas benefit from spectacular views across the Caribbean Sea to Mustique. They all have covered terraces from which to enjoy the views.
There is a choice of two restaurants, both in stunning locations with delicious food, and using locally sourced ingredients - Blue Tropic is surrounded by lush gardens and swaying palm trees, and Bagatelle's open beachside veranda allows guests to soak in the views.
Facilities include a spa, gym and two swimming pools. The relatively undiscovered island of Bequia has plenty to keep guests occupied, with local restaurants, hidden coves, and fantastic snorkelling and diving.
The swashbuckling British pirate 'Blackbeard' is thought to have visited Friendship Beach in the 18th century.
