Palm Island Resort
Palm Island Resort, a heavenly and exclusive hideaway. This tiny island has a circumference of only one-and-a-half miles and is hemmed by hundreds of coconut palms and soft white sand. With just one idyllic resort and a scattering of private houses found on the island, you can hike, swim and explore at your leisure as you relax in serene seclusion.
If you’re looking to get out and embark on an adventure, there are nature trails as well as a cycle track to enjoy around the island. If you’re more enamoured by the pristine waters, you can snorkel, head out for a swim, or try out one of the many water-sports or excursions on offer. To enjoy complete isolation, take to the water in a kayak and find a quiet, secluded beach. If you’d rather lounge away the day, there are five beaches to choose from as well as the stunning new spa.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Royal Palm Island is a welcoming and elegant space, complete with beautiful ocean views and a menu inspired by fresh ingredients grown on the island. Down on the sand you’ll find the stylishly refurbished Sunset Grill, the ideal spot for a casual lunch with a touch of Caribbean flair. For romance seekers, enjoy private beach dining under the stars or by the romantic heart-shaped tree (extra cost).
Almost half of the resort’s rooms and suites are located on the beach, with the rest merely steps away; allowing everyone to enjoy beautiful views of the palm groves or the ocean. Each of the rooms features rustic Caribbean décor. Palm View Rooms are located in coconut groves, while Beachfront Rooms offer sea views, and Seagrape Suites and Lofts provide plenty of additional space. For true privacy, opt for one of the grand Villas.
Great care has been taken to ensure the resort blends in with these untouched natural surroundings. The five white sandy beaches are complemented by just 42 guestrooms that are dwarfed by the coconut palms and charmingly styled with their island-setting in mind. With 135 acres of spectacular landscape, guests are provided with the utmost privacy and seclusion. The resort is absolutely ideal for a romantic holiday or a perfect breakaway from the stresses and strains of modern life. With no televisions or telephones, you can re-discover the lost art of conversation, catch up on the books you never get a chance to read or just simply laze the day away listening to the waves lapping on the beach or the cooling breeze rustling the shady palm leaves.
