Eleven days..... into a six week Island hopping, Caribbean adventure i was lucky enough to reach Beautiful Bequia, my plan of 'non-action' was to spend time alone in a tranquil and peaceful setting and digest my journey so far ~
Arriving up at the Old Fort was a wonderful surprise of calm and serenity, almost surreal ~
I found myself unwinding at a pace that was most perfect yet quicker than anywhere else i had landed so far -
I had just been magically taken to Heaven ~ an Earthly one.
The Old Fort has a a wonderful energy ~ Freeing..... yet Grounding......
The Air is Fresh, Breeze Gentle and the Views (really are) Breathtaking.
Sitting by the stunning pool or many of the other comfortable areas in the grounds and absorbing the surroundings your in, ignite your senses, reminding you exactly why you looked for and booked such a place.
The rooms (as are the buildings) are Elegant and refined yet FORTuitously Strong -
Clean and very comfortable you have space to swing yet feel contained and cosy in your own personal area.
A home from home where you can relax, feel safe, have dinner and make plans to enjoy the Island and everything is has to offer ~
I will most definitely be back, in hope of embracing all of the above.....and the repetitive light & happy feelings that made me fall in love, with every second i spent there .
A Visit ~ Strongly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Old Fort, Natural Hotel & Estate is the only fully restored historic plantation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines dating back to the eighteenth-century when the French first started settling the West Indies. Set high atop Mt. Pleasant with an estate that stretches over 28 acres all the way down to the Caribbean Sea, it features acres of orchards and views to beat anything you would find out on the open ocean. Its lush grounds are covered in traveller's palms, breadfruit, tamarind, banana and mango trees, surrounding one of the most beautiful pools in the world, happily slip sliding its watery way over the edge. Recommended over years by numerous international media, it has been transformed into the kind of hotel you never want to leave! ... more less
