Mandarin Oriental To Manage Caribbean Resort On Canouan Island In Saint Vincent And The Grenadines

Hong Kong, 21 August 2017 – Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced that it will rebrand and manage a luxury hotel, currently operating on Canouan island in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, from 1 November 2017. Mandarin Oriental, Canouan will be the Group’s first property in the Caribbean.

The exclusive resort is expansive while being intimate and secluded, nestled on the powder white sands of Canouan Island which is only five square miles in total. The whole island is dedicated to leisure pursuits including sailing, kayaking, diving, fishing, tennis and hiking, as well as golf at an 18-hole Jim Fazio-designed golf course. The hotel comprises 26 suites and 12 three to four bedroom villas. All suites and villas have full ocean views, and each villa comes with a large private pool, just a few steps away from the ocean. A variety of restaurants and bars provide a range of cuisines and al fresco dining and the property also features an outdoor infinity pool, a spa and health club, with two overwater treatment cabanas accessible by boat.

The Group will also brand and manage a portfolio of new Residences at Mandarin Oriental, to be located near the hotel and scheduled to be available in 2020.

“We are delighted to be introducing the Mandarin Oriental brand to the Caribbean, and to be bringing the Group’s legendary service and quality standards to the beautiful island of Canouan,” said James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. “We look forward to introducing guests to what we believe will become the Caribbean’s most exclusive luxury getaway,” he added.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Mandarin Oriental to bring the best in luxury hospitality to the Caribbean and to our exclusive hotel and residences,” said John Dwyer, Chief Executive Officer, Canouan Development Corporation.

Canouan is one of the most beautiful islands in the archipelago, surrounded by pristine beaches, warm turquoise waters and emerald-green hills. The resort is situated on the east coast of the island on the soft sands and crystal clear waters of Godahl Beach. The protected waters of the Tobago Cays Marine Park, which has a number of globally significant habitats including coral reefs and sea turtle nesting sites, is a 30 minute boat ride away.

The resort is easily accessible by a short 20 minute flight in one of the hotel’s private jets from Barbados, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines as well as other Caribbean gateways. Regular flights and yacht charters are also available.
