Talk about extravagance! As if a luxury beach hotel on a secluded Caribbean island isn’t enough, Bequia Beach Hotel ups the ante with a 35-meter yacht named Star of the Sea. Located on Friendship Beach, the breezy beach property has everything from cozy classic rooms to a spacious Estate Villa for those really looking to splurge. And for those who can’t stand to be on land, Star of the Sea is available for charter, holding up to 12 guests for excursions to Tobago Cays, Canouan, Mustique and more.
Bequia Beach Hotel’s Yacht Features
The Italian-built Benetti ship has six staterooms, mahogany paneling, a top-deck jacuzzi and equipment for watersports, fishing and snorkeling. Charter Star of the Sea for a glamorous trip to nearby Mustique and St. Vincent or go as far as the Windward Islands on a seven-day cruise.
Bequia Beach Hotel Amenities
On land, Bequia Beach Hotel has a swimming pool with loungers, spa and fitness center and complimentary paddleboards, kayaks, snorkeling gear and surfboards.
Imagine yourself dining beachfront or on a romantic hilltop at one of the hotel’s three restaurants: Bagatelle right on Friendship Beach, Blue Tropic serving Italian cuisine atop a hill and Jack’s Beach Bar, known for cocktails and fresh seafood.
You can choose between four dining packages: Bed & Breakfast Rate, Half Board, Full Board and All Inclusive. The standard Bed & Breakfast rate covers breakfast, shuttle service to Jack’s Beach Bar, weekly yoga class and cocktail party, WiFi and complimentary airport transfers for visits five nights or longer. If you upgrade to Half Board or Full Board, you get those perks along with dinner or lunch and dinner, respectively. But for total elimination of cares in the world, go for the All Inclusive package. You’ll enjoy three meals per day plus beer, house wines and mixed drinks included.
Bequia Beach Hotel Room & Suite Options
Between the seven different lodging options, you’re certain to find the room that wows you. Sand is within “touching distance” when staying in a Beachfront Suite and the Two Bedroom Villa has its own private pool—yes, please!
But the real crown jewel has to be the private Estate Villa. The four bedroom, four bathroom villa accommodates up to eight guests and has a wrap-around terrace fitted with hammocks with views of Mustique, a private infinity pool on the second floor and a sun deck so you can say goodbye to tan lines!
Exploring Dazzling Bequia Island
Sure, Bequia Beach Hotel’s hospitality and paradisaical setting make you never want to set foot off the property, but what if we told you ALL of Bequia is just as stunning? Use the resort shuttle to get to Princess Margaret Beach where Jack’s Beach Bar awaits you, fully equipped with passion fruit margaritas and all manner of beachy libations. Take the road or hike over to Lower Bay where the water is calm and restaurants and bars are nearby.
If you’re anxious to get your feet wet and explore translucent Caribbean waters, ask hotel concierge to connect you with a nearby dive shop. And don’t forget to explore Port Elizabeth, where the shopping and dining delights and the Admiralty Bay views inevitably make you swoon. For a bird’s eye view of the island, hike to its highest point on Mount Peggy and for an up-close local stop, visit Rasta Fruit & Veg Market.
