St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority (SVGTA) is reminding Canadians that although Air Canada recently announced it was suspending its flights to the destination (along with a number of other sun destinations) they can still visit by travelling via Barbados.
Glenn Beache, CEO for the SVGTA, said that: “While the suspension of Air Canada’s direct flights from Toronto to St. Vincent is certainly disappointing, we want to remind Canadians that alternatives are available, including via Air Canada’s weekly direct service from Toronto (YYZ) and Montreal (YUL) to Barbados (BGI). Upon arrival in Bridgetown, it’s a quick 45-minute flight to Argyle International Airport, with lots of departure options available on regional airlines.”
As for where to stay, the destination offers a lot of options, depending on the type of trip travellers are looking for.
For example, La Vue Boutique Hotel and Beach Club is a new five-star property located on St. Vincent that just opened its door with a soft launch event last month (Dec. 10).
Boasting panoramic views of Cross Island, Young Island, Fort Duvernette, Bequia and part of Mustique, the hotel features 19 guestrooms, three restaurants, several bars, a gym (with squash court and sauna), a spa, and tennis court. The hotel is also fully wheelchair accessible.
Other notable options include: Sandy Lane Yacht Club & Residences on Canouan, which is now a port of entry for SVG, meaning yachts can clear all immigration/customs/Covid protocols on property; Petit St. Vincent Private Island Resort in the southern Grenadines, a 115-acre tropical paradise/boutique beach resort where low-key luxury meets high-end service; Beachcombers Hotel a 48-room boutique hotel on St. Vincent; and more.
