Occupying a small island just off of St. Vincent's southern coast, Young Island Resort offers guests a feeling of seclusion with its chain of 29 private cottages. In fact, the resort recently began offering its first all-inclusive experience – which includes the cost of the room and meals, as well as round-trip ferry service to St. Vincent and access to water sports equipment. Guests appreciate the resort's quiet atmosphere and praise the cottages' appearance, which feature private patios, open-air showers and crisp, white decor. For a moment of relaxation, book a treatment at Spa Kalina; or, if you feel like socializing, tag along on a boat excursion to nearby Bequia or Mustique, or join other visitors for dinner at the on-site restaurant (just note that attire is business casual).

Critic Reviews



One of St. Vincent's two true resorts is actually 200 yards offshore on its own private 35-acre island ringed by powder-soft beaches, offering 29 airy, hillside cottages and a pool, spa, tennis court, and superb alfresco restaurant.



Johnny Depp slept in one of Young Island Resort's 30 cottages while filming Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl – proof of the island's celeb status.
