Palm Island Resort occupies a private island just off Union Island's eastern coast. Those staying in one of Palm Island's 43 guest rooms have access to five pristine beaches, numerous hiking and biking trails, a tennis court and a soothing spa. Guests bemoan the amount of effort it takes to get here, but say that the spacious island-themed guest rooms – complete with private terraces and spectacular views – and upscale amenities are worth the trek. If you start to get cabin fever on this small, secluded islet, the resort offers off-shore excursions to the nearby Tobago Cays. And after a long day on the water, retreat to the Royal Palm Restaurant and satiate your appetite with a serving of homemade clam chowder or pan-seared fish – two favorites among recent guests.

Critic Reviews



Choose a beachfront room, a palm-view room in the garden, a huge Plantation or Seagrape suite (both ideal for families), or a remote island loft set on stilts that overlooks the sea. All have wicker and bamboo furniture, rich fabrics, and original art created by a resident underwater and marine artist, Patrick Chevailler, M.D.

Fodor's Choice



Surrounded by five white-sand beaches, this private island is sometimes called Prune, so we can easily understand the more appealing name change. This little islet offers complete peace and quiet, with plenty of sea, sand, sun, and sailing.

Travel + Leisure


Accessible only by boat, this exclusive enclave occupies its own jewel-like Caribbean island. The 135-acre property has just 43 guest rooms and cottages, so you won’t want for privacy here.

Condé Nast Traveler


Couples wanting a relaxing, secluded Caribbean experience gravitate to Palm Island, where the 43 guest rooms are simply decorated and visitors can lounge on the beach with drinks in hand.

Location & Parking

Located in southern St. Vincent and the Grenadines just off the eastern side of Union Island, Palm Island is only accessible by boat. The all-inclusive resort is able to assist guests with booking an inter-island flight from St. Lucia to the nearby Union Island, and a representative will meet guests at the St. Lucia airport for further assistance. From Union Island, guests take a short boat shuttle to the resort. Keep in mind, luggage is limited on the inter-island flights and might not arrive until the day after guests make their way to Palm Island. Subsequently, the resort requires all guests to pack a carry-on bag with one day's worth of clothing and personal items. Although the resort has a gift shop, amenities are few and far between on the island; however, the resort offers a shuttle to Union Island for access to more amenities, including shopping, dining and banking.
