Canouan Cares

Mandarin Oriental, Canouan neither takes what we have, nor what we create, for granted. Canouan is a veritable playground for beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts. The region is well known for excellent sailing, diving and deep sea fishing, all of which can be enjoyed off Canouan’s shores and around the many neighboring islands. Canouan’ s large natural coral reef creates excellent conditions for swimming, snorkeling and sea kayaking off the Godahl Beach Carenage Bay and Shell Beach. Mandarin Oriental, Canouan supports efforts that promote the health of our natural resources and our community.

Cargo 4 Kids

Educational tools make a world of difference within The Grenadines. Cargo 4 Kids is our way of lending a hand. This program is optional for each resort guest. Here is how it works...If you have a little extra room in your suitcase, and you care to fill that space with a few school supplies, Mandarin Oriental, Canouan colleagues will ensure they are delivered to schools in need. We take care of ensuring the right supplies find the right classrooms in St. Vincent & The Grenadines. For a list of the requested supplies, kindly contact our Executive Office.
