PRIVATE ISLAND RESORT IN ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES
The first quarter of 2010 will see such high profile special events in North America as the 10th anniversary of Martin Luther King Day’s national observance in the U.S. and the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. As for the southern Caribbean, the untrammeled, multi-island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is gearing up for something special of its own sure to delight discerning travelers eager to escape the winter doldrums early next year. Young Island Resort is offering one free night for every paid night when guests reserve the breakfast plus dinner meal plan. Couples who book the seven-night “Lover’s” package will only pay for five nights. These limited-time specials are valid for travel from January 1, 2010 through March 31, 2010.
Young Island Resort is located right off the southern coast of the main island of St. Vincent – an enjoyable three-minute water taxi ride away. Pampering begins even before check-in, when guests are greeted on the dock with a glass of the resort’s signature rum punch. When not lounging in their beachfront or hillside cottages with an ocean view, landlubbers can enjoy downtime at the quaint swimming pool amidst lush grounds or on the pristine white sand beach. Of special note is the floating “Coconut Bar,” jutting ten yards into the ocean in six feet of tranquil Caribbean Sea – an idyllic spot to enjoy refreshing drinks. Watersports enthusiasts can snorkel in crystal clear waters right off shore, embark on a sailing trip to neighboring Grenadine islands, or book a dive excursion to explore St. Vincent’s fascinating underwater world. A perfect start to an evening is a dinner under a thatched kiosk near the beach, where savory meals are accompanied by the resort’s signature six loaves of bread – white, coconut, banana, raisin, cinnamon, and whole wheat.
Winter 2010 rates start at $532 per person, per night, and include airport and ferry transfers, non-motorized watersports, day or night tennis, basic laundry, taxes and service charges. “Lover’s” package starts at $2,792 per couple and also includes three meals per day and a foot massage per couple.
