St Vincent hotels are largely upscale and are located throughout this island chain, but visitors should find the island's southern shore advantageous, because it is where most of the prime accommodations are found. Many visitors to the island of St Vincent also have side trips to the Grenadines in mind. The Grenadines are the country's yachting playground, and they are also home to some of the best St Vincent and the Grenadines beaches. Only nine of the of the islands in this Caribbean nation are inhabited and offer lodging, and in addition to St Vincent, they also include Young Island, Bequia, Palm Island, and Petit St Vincent.
The St Vincent hotels can fit almost any budget, because they range from discount guest houses to luxurious resorts. Some of the more affordable lodging in St Vincent can be found in and around the capital city of Kingstown, which isn't far from some beautiful beaches. One such budget hotel is the Paradise Beach Hotel, which offers a very desirable location on Villa Beach. The rooms there might not be the most luxurious on the island, but they are clean, comfortable, and very hard to beat for the price. If money isn't an issue, then a stay at the Young Island Resort is a good way to go. This is the most luxurious of the St Vincent resorts, and it can be found on a private island just off Villa Beach. There are only 29 guest units at the upscale Young Island Resort, which can be reached by way of ferry in just five short minutes. The white sand beach on Young Island is arguably the best beach in the country, which is why the Young Island Resort is ideal for beach vacations in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
The St Vincent hotels are small on the whole, and they are not overly fancy. The Young Island Resort tops the list of St Vincent resorts, though if you want to spend less on your accommodations, you can always stay at the Grand View Beach Hotel. The rates at the Grand View are very attractive, as it has a beachfront setting. Since upscale lodging in St Vincent is relatively hard to find, those who are looking to enjoy an upscale resort experience can head to the islands of the Grenadines. Among the best resorts in this island chain are the Palm Island Resort (pictured) and the Petit St Vincent Resort. Palm Island is ringed by fantastic white sand beaches, which helps to make the Palm Island Resort so tempting, and it doesn't hurt that the rates are all-inclusive. There are 37 immaculate guest units at this posh resort, and when you're not relaxing in your cozy quarters, you can go fishing, snorkeling, or wind surfing. The Petite St Vincent Resort also deserves to be mentioned among the very best hotels in St Vincent and the Grenadines. This chic resort is the only lodging option on the island of Petit St Vincent. Spacious cottage units await guests at the Petite St Vincent Resort, and their rooms are beautifully appointed.
In addition to heading off to Palm Island and Petite St Vincent Island, many visitors to St Vincent and the Grenadines also make a break for Bequia, and for good reason. Bequia is the largest and northernmost island in the Grenadines. There you will find excellent beaches, tranquil lagoons, and coral reefs. Interestingly enough, you might encounter some friendly natives, some of whom have ancestral ties to Scotland. The accommodations on the island of Bequia range from guest houses and resorts to self-catering villas and apartments, so finding your ideal place to stay shouldn't be too taxing. When luxury is what you are seeking, then you might consider adding the Bequia Beach Hotel to your list of hotels in St Vincent and the Grenadines. Eleven rooms, twelve suites, and six villas make up the accommodations at the newer Bequia Beach Hotel, and they are all dazzling. The rates are relatively high at the Bequia Beach Hotel, in which case some visitors prefer to stay at more affordable lodging establishments, such as the Frangipani Guest House. It's easy to arrange scuba diving excursions, private yacht charters, and other fun activities at the Frangipani, which makes it one of the more popular hotels in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Between the St Vincent hotels and the hotels that can be found on the inhabited islands of the Grenadines, finding your ideal place to stay won't be a difficult task. The St Vincent resorts are where many choose to base themselves, though the Grenadines are becoming increasingly more popular, thanks to hotels like the Bequia Beach Hotel. Anyone planning a Caribbean vacation will not only benefit from a hotel stay, but there are also a number of attractive vacation rentals throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines. The rates at the vacation rentals are comparable to hotel rates.
