Mandarin Oriental’s first Caribbean property

Resort to be “Caribbean’s most exclusive luxury getaway”
Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is to open its first Caribbean hotel when it adds Canouan Island in St Vincent and the Grenadines to its portfolio later this year.
The group says its new hotel, rebranded from what is the island’s sole existing property to Mandarin Oriental Canouan from November 1, will “become the Caribbean’s most exclusive luxury getaway”.
Canouan Island is just 13 square kilometres but includes an 18-hole Jim Fazio-designed golf course, while the hotel includes 26 suites, infinity pool, spa and health club – including two overwater treatment cabanas accessible by boat – and 12 three- and four-bedroom villas, each with private pool.
The group will also manage a portfolio of new Residences at Mandarin Oriental close to the hotel, scheduled to be available in 2020.
The resort is on the east coast of the island and is reached by a 20-minute flight in one of the hotel’s private jets from Barbados, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and other places in the Caribbean.
