This place is great to escape everyday life as you really are away from it. 25 mins by private jet from Barbados to Canouan, landing at the airport and being greeted as the only passengers in the "airport" was a great experience, followed by a quick 10 min car ride up to the resort. We had a one bed penthouse which was the nicest room we've ever stayed in. Only downside is we had our 6 year old daughter with us and there were no curtains/drapes in the lounge where her bed was. As we paid so much extra when we booked this, I would have expected to be better-informed. The first two nights sleep were disturbed until housekeeping put a foldaway bed in the dressing room. This worked ok, but suggest if you are a family you look at the two bed suite (if you have 2 kids) or a normal suite if you have 1 child. Both these rooms are much cheaper than what we had and would have worked better for us.

Service throughout the resort is generally exceptional as you are often the only ones in a bar/restaurant. Food quality is also extremely good but choice is limited daily to two restaurants.

Upsides - everything about this place is first class
Downsides - possibly too quiet at times

Dear sjf,
Greetings from Mandarin Oriental, Canouan! Thank you for your lovely comments, we are thrilled to know how well you enjoyed your stay.

While the lack of curtains in the penthouse sitting room take full advantage of the stunning views, we overlooked the possibility that someone on the sleeper sofa may be awaken by the early rising Caribbean sun. Please accept my apologies that your daughter’s sleep was disturbed. Going forward, our team will be sure to mention the potential sunlight disturbance and offer alternate accommodations that may be better suited to a small family.

Thank you once again for staying with us, we hope to welcome you and family back very soon!

With best regards,
Jacquie

Wow no expense has been spared on this most shinny and marble filled palace, from the ample walk in wardrobe to the high tech flat screen tvs and ipad control system every possible high tech luxury is at hand it's has the feel more of an Italian Villa than a Caribeen beach side place to chill, its formal and polished the service is beyond 5 star.

On January 21, 2019, our trip to Heaven to celebrated my wife's birthday started in Barbados where we were greeted be a VIP concierge - a very pleasant individual who greeted us and escorted away from from the mass arriving passengers, onto our connecting flight to Canouan Is. Upon arriving at the Mandarin Htl. we were personally greeted by the Duty Mgr, GM, our Butler and other staff members.
Our stay was met and exceeded our expatiation. Prior to arriving I contacted Mr. Rohan -Mgr. and requested some roses. He searched the Island and finally had 2 dozen roses flown from Barbados. On the day of the birthday my Butler together with staff planed a most memorable day of my wife's life. Started from the cabana to the 13 hole golf course aprox. 850 FL, drinking champagne and view almost all of the Grenadines Island. Amazing views !
Our daughter loves going to the Kids Club. However, due to the season, she was the only one there. The staff was caring and kept her busy with various activities. One morning as we were having breakfast I ran into the GM, he asked me how my daughter was enjoying the Kids Club, I told him that she was the only child there. He told my daughter that he will arrange for some local kids to have a kiddy party. Sure enough, after I dropped her off at 10 am, there were a classroom full with kids from the local school. UNBELIEVABLE !
Sadly, our 8 days of pampering came to an end.
The resort's new moto should be...WE DON'T SAY NO !

The hotel is magnificent. The beach is beautiful and the rooms, restaurants and facilities available were fantastic. The staff give the hotel real character and life and make a great hotel even better -- in particular THANK YOU to our butler Lennie and to Delisha at the Front of House.

Mandarin Oriental group just took over management of this property in July 2018. The management are predominantly MO with most waiting, domestic and maintenance staff local islanders (from Canouan and the biggest island St Vincent.)

The team bring both excellent service and friendliness together to make your stay so welcoming you truly never want to leave.

As it’s still new to the MO portfolio - its currently a hidden gem but I warn you, it will not stay this way. The only thing that keeps mass tourism from invading is the route to Canouan. You need a yacht, a private jet or a small commuter plane (18 seater prop) that hops across several grenadine Islands from Barbados dropping passengers before arriving on the Canouan airstrip (actually the longest in the grenadines and can - but doesn’t- land a 737)

The hotel itself is a vast luxury palace with only 26 suites - each magnificently appointed with marble floors, beautiful furnishings, exceptional bathrooms, sheets and amenities including electronically controlled lights, climate and even tv in a retractable mirror door. It’s 5/6 star. The pool is stunning, the resort private with larger villas for rental in the surrounding acres where guests can also utilise the resorts facilities. 2 near deserted beaches of white sand and turquoise sea fully equipped with mattresses sun loungers, thatched sunshades, towers, cold water and yes ... full food and beverage service. If you want to know what it feels like to be Sir Richard Branson on his private Necker Island then this is as close as you can get. The resort was so quiet at times we were the only 2 guests on shell beach with 8-10 staff in attendance. This ratio was actually reflected all over the resort. (Late Jan is a great time to go - the Holiday Season was apparently at capacity.)

Due to the lack of guests restaurants and bars were opened on a rotating basis but food and wine was of excellent quality. The staff are priceless ...

... which brings me to the catch. This place is not for the fiscally faint hearted. It’s a perfect quiet romantic honeymoon destination or for a special celebration. It’s discrete, elegant and attracts a predominantly adult, mature traveller. Basically the ones who can afford it! This is my ultimate luxury relaxation destination. And I will return.
