If you like your Caribbean island with a remote feel, Petit St Vincent is the one for you.
From the seclusion of your well-appointed cottage, you can pretend you have it all to yourself. When the sun goes down, however, the barefoot beach bar is buzzy.
The resort is known for its laid-back, low-tech attitude: there are no room keys or phones and you call staff to your room by putting out a flag.
Days are spent relaxing, kayaking, sailing and snorkelling. Come evening, private, thatch-covered tables are set up between the bar and beach, where you'll feast on lobster and creole-style crab.
WOW FACTOR: Try a soothing Balinese pressure-point massage in one of the open-sided rooms of the spa.
FLIGHT TIME: 13 hours
WHEN TO GO: Spring, Summer
