Palm Island Resort in the Grenadines is a Private Island retreat set amongst some of the most relaxed, friendly fun ,unspoiled Islands.In My Opinion.You have to fly to Barbados to take the flight to Union Island for the Boat ride to Palm Island. You can alternatively fly to Grenada and take a flight to Union but it can be difficult to coordinatehowever there are other options especially if you have the time to explore the Islands by sail boat before arriving. A sail and stay package is truly a memorable experience, I think!
When you arrive in Barbados you are met and instructed through security and into the airport.(Your baggage is handled by the meet and greet service). You then board your flight to Union Island which is about an hour on a small 16 seat plane.Land at the tiny airport in Union Island where someone is waiting with a golf cart to take you to the dock to board the boat to Palm Island. You will get a cold cloth and bottle of water, sit back and start to relax.
When you arrive you feel like you are on a deserted Island. There are staff on the dock waiting to Welcome you with Rum Punches your bags are immeadiately taken to your room and some instructions for dining etc.Close the door and get acquainted with your room. Beachfront is the best location but just get there based on your budget.
Freshen up and go to the bar to get a drink. Then get ready for your first night on paradise. It is so relaxing just note that you should bring repellants with you as well have after bite care as there are bugs on ALL ISLANDS. There are no TV or Phones in room so bring your nook or kindle, ipad etc and relax.Ok you are exhausted from your day of travel so just go to bed early. You will want to start soaking up the sun and enjoying your days from early on. At least that is what I did.
Take part in the water sports, sit by the pool, go to the library and read a book or watch tv or use the internet. Play tennis, go to the Spa, or snorkel. Take a hike around the Island and explore the wildlife or do nothing at all.In my opinion a trip to the Tobago Cays is a must. You can take a day sail with the resort sailing vessels or be adventurous and take a local guide(Captain Harris on Union Island or Mos Ras, the Pirate) Capt Harris is a very nice guy and can certainly cook up a fish or lobster feast on the beach of the Tobago Cays for a reasonable price, I think. This is not a fancy set up but probably one of the best meals you will have in the Grenadines. During the day you will have the opportunity to swim with the Sea Turtles which if you have never done this you really must. It is just exhilarating to see them so close and swim and possible touch them(be careful though).
Back to Palm Island for more relaxing and relaxing.The staff, accommodations, grounds, and overall location are superb.
