There are two restaurants on Palm Island which have both recently been updated and are open air to make the most of the setting. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Royal Palm Restaurant serves a range of international cuisine using local produce where possible, and hosts live music most evenings. A more casual choice is The Sunset Restaurant, set right on the sand with a beach-chic style and serving lunch daily as well as dinner on certain evenings. For something special, a private beach picnic can be set up on one of the island's isolated beaches.
A popular way for guests to spend their days at Palm Island Resort & Spa is to relax on the main beach, where plentiful sun loungers offer stunning sea views. There are plenty of secluded seafront spots around the island which can be reached on foot or by bicycle, of which there are plenty for guests to borrow - a number of shady hammocks are dotted alongside white sands overlooking turquoise seas. The lagoon style swimming pool offers an alternative setting for relaxation. Guests in search of activity can go snorkelling in the warm Caribbean waters, take part in a range of non-motorised watersports or climb the rocky hillside trails to find panoramic views across the island and out to sea.
Due to its location in the heart of the Grenadines, Palm Island is in a prime position for guests to visit the surrounding islands. We highly recommend an evening sunset cruise, a lobster lunch at Petit St Vincent or a day snorkelling the Tobago Cays, a world-renowned dive spot known for its extensive marine life including turtles.
With much birdlife, ground lizards and iguanas among fan palms, hibiscus and over 2,000 coconut palm trees, Palm Island Resort & Spa offers a truly natural Caribbean experience in the Grenadines.
Palm Island recently opened a new beachfront spa, located beside one of the island's most spectacular beaches overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. It has two treatment rooms, one of which has a jacuzzi on the terrace, perfect for stargazing or watching the sunset over the Grenadines. The spa uses two product lines; Aromatherapy and the resort's all natural Blue Naturals range which contains Hibiscus, also known as 'Botox of the Caribbean'. The spa offers a variety of relaxing treatments, a perfect addition to your relaxing holiday at Palm Island Resort & Spa.
Palm Island is unbelievably beautiful, with vibrant turquoise seas and perfect white sand beaches lined by swaying palm trees. Wherever you are staying, the stunning beach is never far away. Most of the accommodation is simple and typically Caribbean, while the beachfront suites were refurbished in 2017 to become more contemporary.
If you can bear to drag yourself away from the beach, take a bicycle to explore the small island where iguanas roam freely and hillside trails boast remarkable views over the resort and out to sea. It takes just 5 minutes to cycle from one end of the island to the other. When you’re in need of some shade, hunt out one of the hammocks which are found in beautiful, secluded spots around the island – some breezier than others!
I would also recommend a visit to the spa, a recent addition to the resort which is set on a picture perfect stretch of beach with friendly therapists who use the spa’s own products, flavoured either with hibiscus or frangipani.
Last but not least, make sure you take advantage of the island’s spectacular setting and take a boat trip to the Tobago Cays for a spot of snorkelling with turtles – a wonderful experience!
