St. Vincent & The Grenadines 14 June 2010
The exclusive Palm Island is an idyllic Caribbean hideaway, situated between Union Island and Petit St. Vincent, in the Grenadines. The 135-acre private island boats a selection of white sandy beaches, Palm trees and crystal-clear turquoise surroundings.
The island has just 43 charming guest rooms and suites, which feature king-sized beds, exposed beams, sunken bathtubs and views of the golden the beach. The island's Spa Tranquility offers a range of pampering therapies, drawing on a variety of methods from Swedish and Shiatsu to Reflexology. Using soothing essential oils and creams including Tea Tree, Ylang Ylang and Peppermint, Spa Tranquility offers a welcome escape from the sunshine. For the more energetic, Palm Island welcomes guests to enjoy a round of golf, snorkeling and scuba-diving off the coast of the island, or a game of tennis.
