“Good and getting better”
Reviewed January 2, 2009

We were looking for a place that had two key features that often contradict each other. First we wanted a beatiful unspoilt island with plenty to see, eat at, swim, relax on and second we wanted the kind of luxury you normally find on the smaller resort islands.
We have always ruled out Bequia because there did not seem to be any high level luxury hotels there.
I guess the newish owner of the Bequi Beach (Bengt, a Scandinavian) saw the opportunity and did something about it because that is exactly what he is turning his hotel into. He is clearly investing big money and has even appointed a top GM who used to be at a major Maldives resort. This guy (Oliver) had only recently arrived but was already making his presence felt.
The place itself used to be a small 12 room hotel called Blue Tropic built up a slope away from the beach and this renovated unit is currently being used as the central part of the new resort whilst the rest is being constructed all the way down to the beautiful bay.
We were a bit worried before we arrived as we had been warned by the owners that construction was still taking place but we decided it was worth taking the risk. What we experienced was just that although to be fair they went to every means to minimise noise. Our problem, is that we arrived at an extremely quiet time just before the Xmas rush and they were trying to cram as much work in so that they could shut down the work over the holidays.
I cannot say the noise was not a problem because it was but the good news is that most of the big construction jobs are well advanced and certainly by next December the whole thing will be complete. When that happens we will be back like a shot.
From what I can see the end result will be amazing with beautiful suites, cottages and rooms. Some will have four poster beds and outdoor baths! They are building another pool, tennis courts, gym, spa and a beach restaurant and I can't wait to see it.
When complete it will full match up to anything Canouan, Peter or young Island can offer PLUS be located on the best island in the Caribbean. It will also be more peaceful than our visit.!

My husband and I and another couple visited Bequia for a three night break over 22nd 23rd 24th February we booked the trip independently from St Lucia and we had a most memorable few days in an absolutely idylic location and at a hotel that far surpassed our expectations.We were met at the ferrydock by the hotels transport (a small golf buggy) and conveyed to the hotel by a friendly and informative member of staff who checked us into the two adjoining rooms with wonderful views over the pool and bay.Very quickly a welcoming cocktail was brought to the room and checks made to ensure everything was to our satisfaction.The room was spacious and very well presented with all fixtures and fittings of a very high standard.The bathroom toiletries were from molton brown and everything from cutlery to crockery was of the highest standard.The staff and the manager Charlotte couldn't be more accomodating assisting with transfers and providing advice re places to visit.We ate in the restaurant on our final evening and like everything else the meal lives up to our expectations.Due to building work next door Charlotte served breakfast on our individual terraces but to be honest the building work didnt really impact upon us as we explored the area and when around the hotel it wasnt a major distraction.I would strongly recommend this hotel for get away from it all break in very comfortable and ambient suroundings where staff will meet your every request with a smile and do their utmost to make your stay as comfortable as they can.I look forward to returning to this hotel.

We decided to spend Christmas on Bequia and knew about this new hotel so we contacted them and booked the familyroom. They gave us a very pleasant Christmas atmosphere; excellent Christmas dish and perfect service. We enjoyed both the pool and the beach. The rooms are so nicely furnished and feels so relaxed. We enjoyed it so much so we spent New Year there also!
We can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice athmosphere, good service, excellent food, nice beach and needs to come away from all stress!
