Formerly Pink Sands Club, Mandarin Oriental, Canouan features 26 spacious suites and six villas designed for couples and families. This 5 star resort offers an exclusive and remote experience for those seeking the best of what the Caribbean has to offer – pristine white sands, calm azure waters and understated luxury rivalling the likes of Sandy Lane, Barbados. The utterly serene nature and boutique scale of Canouan Island makes it one of the most romantic holiday destinations in the Caribbean, where luxury estates line the coast and immaculate coral reefs frame the shoreline. Featuring signature pink touches, dark wood finishes and cream fabrics, the elegant accommodations at Mandarin Oriental, Canouan combine classic Caribbean charm with pioneering technology; most in-room amenities are controlled by a touch-screen tablet. Offering some of the most exquisite culinary experiences in the Caribbean, this retreat is home to five signature restaurants and bars. At Romeo, savour authentic international dishes served in Moroccan tajines and cast iron cocottes or enjoy a private dining experience overlooking the lagoon at Juliet, the resort’s most refined restaurant.
For an unforgettable experience, explore the Tobago Cays by private boat or stay on resort for an ESPA spa treatment in one of the hotel’s overwater palapas. An infinity pool with a spectacular three-tier deck tempts relaxation, whilst non-motorised watersports and a Jim Fazio-designed 18-hole golf course fulfil more active pursuits. Little ones will love the Kids Club and Teenagers Club, where activities include cookery lessons and arts & crafts sessions.
