Just returned from a wonderful visit to the exclusive and gorgeous Pink Sands Club in Canouan Island in the Grenadines, West Indies. After only a 5 hour flight from New York to Barbados on Jet Blue’s new Mint service and a short, 20 minute connection by private jet to Canouan, you arrive on one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. Private jets can also be chartered directly to the island. Canouan is a hilly paradise, rich in vegetation, and filled with beautiful beaches and plenty of privacy.
The resort recently went through a major renovation, where no detail was overlooked. The design of the hotel is as close to perfect as you can get, with 26 suites, measuring a minimum of 1,300 square feet, and 20 majestic sprawling villas. The Hotel’s ground level suites have direct access to the beautiful white sand beach. The suites come with their own golf cart and butler to take care of all your needs and desires. Only top quality materials were used in the rooms, and all throughout the hotel. Mahogany furniture, cool Carrara marble, and high-tech accessories. A touch of a button on an iPad can either turn on the T.V. embedded in the mirror or open the sliding door to reveal your view of the beach. With mattresses from Hotel YS and Pratesi bed linens, the beds are one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on.
The Jim Fazio 18-hole golf course runs throughout the resort and is spectacularly positioned with amazing views. A gorgeous spa, along with a well-equipped gym, water sports, hikes, tennis, and more allow you to pursue whatever your heart desires. You also have the opportunity to charter a boat to Tobago Cays, where "Pirates of the Caribbean" was filmed.
The Hotel has 6 restaurants to suit every palate from which to choose your meals, allowing for a multitude of choices and the inability to get bored with the options present. The food is sophisticated and equivalent to the chic restaurants that can be found in NYC.
Service was all around professional and always with a smile, exceeding our expectations.
