The Pink Sands Club, located on Canouan Island in St. Vincent & the Grenadines, will welcome guests from 10th October 2016.
Under new ownership, the 26-suite, 6-villa hotel will set a new benchmark for a Caribbean archipelago already synonymous with ultra-exclusive hideaways. Canouan (meaning ‘the island of tortoises’) is known for its lush green hills, secluded white sand beaches and one of the world’s largest living coral reefs, and will soon be renowned for the highly anticipated Pink Sands Club. The hotel will showcase classic architecture, glamorous interiors and cutting-edge technology as well as extensive leisure and dining facilities.
The 26 suites and 6 hotel villas are all ocean-facing and decorated in the club’s signature classic style with pink colour accents, cool marble, cream fabrics and dark woods. Each room benefits from state-of-the-art technology including touch-screen tablet devices that manage every aspect of the guest experience from setting optimum room temperatures to reviewing resort services. A television, discreetly mounted on a mirrored sliding door opposite the bed, moves aside at the touch of a button to reveal the turquoise lagoon beyond. Other facilities include his-and-hers walk-in closets, wireless internet, full honour bars, Nespresso coffee and tea makers, as well as ensuite marble bathrooms with double vanities, separate bath and rainfall shower. Each suite is assigned a dedicated golf cart to navigate the expansive grounds, the island’s hidden bays and the verdant rolling landscape.
On-site leisure facilities include an infinity-edge swimming pool, with 3-tier tanning deck and cabanas, and a spa offering exclusive ESPA treatments from its 9 hillside and 2 overwater palapas. Palapas remain unique in the Caribbean, accessible by boat and offering captivating views of the fish-filled lagoon through a glass-bottom floor.
Other leisure facilities provided on the estate include non-motorised water sports, a floodlit tennis centre, an air-conditioned Technogym fitness centre and complimentary Pirates of Pink Sands kids’ club for 3 to 18 year-olds, where the younger guests will experience local culture through workshops and trips.
The spectacular Jim Fazio-designed 18-hole championship golf course is available for all guests. Set on the dramatic landscape, along the ocean edge, Canouan Golf Club provides vistas from every angle and the world’s longest par 3 at 305 yards. A flotilla of yachts, catamarans and powerboats are available for trips to nearby islands, including the world-famous Tobago Cays.
For epicurean experiences, the stylish all-day dining venue Romeo features an authentic global menu with tables overlooking an open kitchen and handcrafted Molteni stove. Mediterranean options are available at the beach house-style Lagoon Café and simple daytime menu can be found at the swim-up Pool Bar. Turtles Bar is a destination for relaxing cocktails while listening to live music, and Shell Beach is for those seeking fresh fish, local fare and home-grown ingredients. The refined dining option, Juliet, offers the sophisticated ambience of a member’s club with two private dining rooms complemented by both indoor and terrace seating. For a relaxed evening under a canopy of stars, guests will opt for L’Ance Guyac, a chill-out space tucked away on a secluded beach surrounded by nature.
The Canouan Estate, adjacent to the Pink Sands Club is accessible to all guests and features a collection of private villas and residences, restaurants, the golf club house and the real estate sales centre. The villas, already located on the panoramic hillside above Shell Beach on the 1200-acre estate, contribute to the estate’s wide-ranging accommodation choices. Each villa has between two to six bedrooms, kitchen facilities, floor-to-ceiling windows opening out onto generous sun terraces and their own infinity-edge swimming pools.
The launch of The Pink Sands Club completes Phase 1 of the ‘re-imagining of Canouan Island’, a 3-year project costing in excess of US$120 million.
The lead-in rate for Pink Sands Club starts from US$1,400 a night for a One Bedroom Suite. For more information, visit http://www.pinksandsclub.com
