Restaurants are open seasonally on a rotating schedule, with additional options found across the Grenadines Estate including a beach club and a bistro overlooking the golf course.


Guests can spend their days doing as much or as little as they please… those who wish to simply chill out can relax in a cabana by the large infinity pool, take a dip and enjoy a cocktail at the swim-up bar or stroll along the powdery white sands in front of the hotel. The spa is a calm retreat where treatment rooms are tucked away up the hillside, while guided yoga and meditation classes are held on a seafront platform.
Guests who want to stay active can take part in a range of water sports such as Hobie Cat sailing, windsurfing and kayaking, while a few minutes away there is a tennis centre with three floodlit courts. Canouan is also home to the only championship 18-hole golf course in the Grenadines, a par-72 Jim Fazio-designed course offering spectacular panoramic views over the surrounding islands.


Mandarin Oriental Canouan is fantastic for families, with all suites accommodating at least two adults and two children and one child aged 12 years and under staying free of charge when sharing with an adult. The Pirates of Canouan Kids Club is a fantastic facility which is set a few minutes away from the main hotel and is complimentary for youngsters aged 3 years and above. There is plenty of space indoors for arts and crafts, cooking, music and much more, while outside there is a large play area and two swimming pools, one for small children with water slides and the other also suitable for adults.

The island

Canouan, meaning ‘the island of tortoises’ is a beautiful destination with lush green hills and spectacular beaches, surrounded by turquoise seas and a coral reef just off shore. Most of the island is part of the 1200 acre Canouan Estate, itself home to the Mandarin Oriental resort, a collection of villas and the golf course. Guests at Mandarin Oriental Canouan are encouraged to explore the island by golf cart (complimentary with stays in Two and Three Bedroom Villas or available for hire by guests staying in suites) – just watch out for the tortoises that roam freely!

Our Opinion

“This secluded beach resort feels indulgent and luxurious, with the spectacular views being a particular highlight of a stay here. Being able to wake up in the morning, slide back the mirrored wall at the touch of a button and gaze out at the turquoise sea without leaving your bed is a real treat! The attention to detail throughout the resort is exceptional, with cutting-edge technology, deluxe amenities, lavish furnishings and fantastic personal service.
Make sure you drag yourself away from the main hotel and explore the island – there are many beautiful beaches to visit and the views from the hilltop golf course are simply stunning!”
