CANOUAN BUCKET LIST

Why we love it?

Canouan Island is a place very dear to our hearts. It’s where the idea of starting CRASQI first emerged while on holiday and has brought us great inspiration for our brand. It’s a tiny private island that belongs to Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, which very few people in the world know about. 

 

The island is the ultimate destination for high profile entrepreneurs & celebrities, and lately a hideout for those who just want to escape the World and get away from it all. Canouan Island is a true gem, and if you want to spoil yourself, this is the place to do so. 

 

FIRST THINGS FIRST - How do we get there?

Fly from the US into Barbados, St Lucia, or Saint Vincent; fly straight into Barbados from the UK. 

  • Then, take a quick flight into Canouan Island with SVG Air, Grenadines Airlines or rent a private charter. 
  • Canouan Airport is equipped to received super-jets, so if you fly private, you can literally fly direct into Canouan from anywhere in the World. 

 

THE CREW - Who’s in? 

     

    Canouan is a good place for: 

    • Those who enjoy extreme privacy
    • Golfers (Canouan has an award-winning golf course)
    • Honeymooners
    • Those with very high standards when it comes to service and travel

     

       HOTELS - Where to stay?

        • Soho Beach House: if you're a Soho House member, you can book one of the 40 beachfront rooms that are impeccably decorated "Soho House style" and just steps away from the white sand beach.  


        • Mandarin Oriental: equipped with 26 beachfront suites and 13 Villas, this hotel offers the ultimate luxury experience. The spa offers some lavish treatments that will help re-set your body and soul.



        • Canouan Estate: if you're going with a group or if you're staying for an extended period of time, we suggest you stay at one of the stunning private villas that are part of Canouan Estate. As a guest, you'll get full access to the entire Canouan Estate, which includes 5+ fantastic private beaches, 3 restaurants, an award-winning golf-course, tennis courts and an incredible kids club from where children never want to leave. 


          • Sandy Lane Yacht Club: for those looking to spend a night or two in between sailing trips across the Grenadines Islands, we recommend the apartments or the villas at SLYC. It's just steps away from the marina and equipped with 3 beaches, a paddle tennis court, gym and a business center. 

           

          DINING - What to eat/drink?

           

        • Soho House: Ceviche, Kale Salad, and Chocolate Chip Cookies 
        • Mandarin Pool Bar: Fresh Fish Ceviche & Affogatto with chocolate Ice Cream
        • Shenanigan’s: Beet Salad, Red Snapper & Angel Spritz
        • L’Ance Guyac: Greek Wrap & a Glass of Rosé
        • Shell Beach: Fish Tacos & Hairoun local beer
        •
