As a guest you not only feel at one with nature, but can appreciate the magnificent ambiance in an ecologically sustainable retreat away from the stressors of everyday life. Petit St. Vincent, or PSV, as it is known locally, encourage guests to leave behind all the modern day agitators and surrender to the laid back island way. No calls are allowed to guest rooms, relying on old school methods of communication like their yellow-and-red-flag system. Simply place your request into a bamboo tube and then hoist a yellow flag for service, red to not be disturbed. Without the distractions of phones and televisions, the resort provides the opportunity to really unwind while in delightful accommodations.

Designed in collaboration with Arne Hasselqvist, the architect responsible for the first villas on the nearby island of Mustique, the cottages speak to the elegance and simplicity of old world island charm. With just 22 villas and cottages, each one was carefully designed with consideration about position and lay out, ensuring breathtaking views and the utmost in privacy. Whether in an elevated cottage on one of the various bluffs around the island or in a luxury beachfront villa, all rooms which have been recently refurbished are generously appointed with super-king size beds, lounges, both indoor and outdoor dining areas, as well as ample sun-decks or beachfront gardens. While phones and Internet are frowned upon at PSV, modern amenities and comforts are at your disposal with Bose iPod docks, Nespresso coffee machines, fine Italian linens, and BVLGARI toiletries available in the rooms.
