Now Open: The New Seahorse Villa at Palm Island Resort & Spa in The Grenadines
Seahorse Villa is the new, ultimate dream villa destination at the luxury, adult-oriented Palm Island Resort & Spa in The Grenadines. A fabulously positioned and totally private retreat spread over 4,000 square feet that marries divine furnishings and amenities with a simple, pared down vibe.
With sweeping views over the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea to Petit Martinique in the distance, the villa interiors have been beautifully crafted using local and recycled whitewashed woods cleverly accessorized to produce a stunning effect. Step outside and the generous space guarantees blissful lounging and secluded beachfront living.
The villa opens to a spacious hallway with locally crafted, chunky wooden furniture, set against a cool backdrop of whitewashed reclaimed wood with splashes of bold royal blues provided by the furnishings and tile work. Large wicker pendant shades set in high vaulted ceilings send out warming ambient glows. Clever details are all around. Everything feels in harmony with the interior palette mirroring the mesmerizing allure of the Caribbean colors beyond.
The standalone features in the generous sized kitchen are the breakfast bar and shelving made from salvaged ship masts, reclaimed from a shipwreck, and allowed to dry out before being artfully recycled. A homage to a bygone era of piracy. The breakfast bar is cleverly positioned to allow guests to eat breakfast whilst gazing out to the beckoning sea beyond. There are all the essentials too, a double door fridge with ice maker, a four-burner stove, a double sink, a stainless-steel dishwasher, coffee and espresso makers, toaster, full sets of cutlery, crockery, and glassware.
The spacious living and dining areas embrace the same tones and style and are perfect for guests looking to spend some evening downtime. With an elegant dining table and chairs, comfy sofas and a large screen television with a sound system and the internet. Opening the sliding doors onto the veranda allows easy options for that sunset cocktail or dining under the stars.
The two bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms, are similarly prepped for comfort. Super-king size beds with dramatic headboards made from recycled plastic rugs are the focal point, with other features including ceiling fans, TVs, huge walk-in closets with a small desk, a makeup table, and in- room safe. The best bit? Guests can lie back in bed and soak up those glorious ocean views through capacious sliding glass doors. Beyond the bedrooms, tiled bathrooms come with double basins, plush robes and sarongs and large walk-in showers with handsome handmade Mexican clay tiles. A stable door ingeniously allows a view of the ocean and for guests to walk out through or back in via an outdoor shower.
Guests can relax in the white picket fenced private garden with a draped day bed, sun loungers or the shadier veranda, their own private beach with those turquoise waters and white sand beyond. And as much as the villa is designed for fun and comfort, it’s also eminently practical. Complete with a fully equipped laundry room with plenty of storage space whilst the reflective paint on the villa’s exterior keeps the building cool and reduces electricity consumption – making it a beautifully arranged refuge where form magnificently meets function.
Palm Island is an adult-oriented all-inclusive resort and spa on a 135-acre private island in the Caribbean’s Grenadine islands, credited with one of the finest spas in the area. Accessible only by private launch, guests enjoy genuine heartwarming hospitality, with a choice of five exquisite white sand beaches, blissfully warm turquoise waters, impressive palm trees and a lush verdant interior.
With a choice of dining in either of the two restaurants, the elegant Royal Palm and the more relaxed Sunset, or more laid-back eating and drinking in the bars and beachside, and options for secluded picnics or romantic dinners. Accommodations include stylish and supremely comfortable lodgings from Palm View rooms with garden or pool views to Beachfront rooms, to large and elegant Loft rooms and Suites. With a host of activities from a full gym to snorkeling, kayaking, Hobie cats and more, and music from local reggae bands plus the Manager’s weekly cocktail party.
Rates for 2023 range between $3,000-$6,000 per night and all-inclusive, so villa guests are able to enjoy all resort restaurants, bars and facilities. Inter-island flights are at additional cost. For more information and for reservations, please visit palmislandgrenadines.com.
