Do You Want to Visit the Palm Island (Grenadines) Resort?


pal-island-grenadines.pngPalm Island is an 135-acre private island which sits among the beautiful Grenadine islands in the Caribbean. Prior to its development by John and Mary Caldwell the island was an uninhabited, mosquito-infested swampland. John and Mary reclaimed most of the sodden interior by plating palm trees, hence the name Palm Island (The island was originally known as the less glamorous Prune Island).

The couple constructed a 10-room hotel named the Palm Island Beach Club which they ran for 30 years until is was sold and redeveloped in 1999.

The new Palm Island resort has 41 rooms and suites, a spa, pool and tennis court among other amenities. Two of the original private homes were also bought over and converted into luxury villas. 

Palm Island is now only accessible via yacht / boat. The grass airstrip was sacrificed in order to plant more palm trees following the construction of a more sustainable, concrete runway on neighbouring Union Island.
