Located on the beautiful Canouan Island in the Grenadines in the southeastern Caribbean, Canouan Resort is a relaxing island destination with a luxurious spa and a Jim-Fazio designed golf course. The resort is set on 300 acres featuring three white sand beaches and coral reefs filled with marine life, ideal for snorkeling.
Indulge and unwind in one of the suites with a Jacuzzi, Asian day bed and scenic water views on your trip. Or book a massage in an over-water treatment suite with a glass bottom that will let you look into the sea while receiving a massage.
Things to Do
Play tennis, swim in a freshwater swimming pool, relax in a hammock, or take a private boat excursion to St. Vincent, Mustique and Palm Island. If you play golf, don't forget to book a tee time at the Trump International Golf Club which offers scenic ocean views from many of its holes.
Scenic Greens at the Grenadines Estate
If you are looking for unique places to play in the Caribbean, take a look at the Grenadines Estate. The 18 hole Par 72 course was designed by Jim Fazio and offers 19 holes of dramatic play. Its spectacular layout has earned it a "Best Golf Course" rating by Robb Report. During your play, enjoy panoramic views from every hole. Bright blue waters of the Caribbean create a beautiful backdrop.
All tees and greens are hand mown daily which means that the cut is very precise. Desalinated water is used for irrigation. There is a 480 foot elevation change and is the only course in the Grenadines. Here are the most scenic holes to look forward to. The 6th hole is a par 5, located along the ocean, with views of the Canouan Resort spa and the Galleria. The 13th hole has panoramic views of the Grenadines. Hole 17 meanders around a scenic lake. If you stay at the Canouan Resort, you receive discounted rates, starting at $195 per round in the high season, and from $175 during the low season. Packages and specials are often available, so be sure to ask when booking your vacation.
All of the villas have been designed in such a way to offer views of the water and separate outside entrances. A golf cart comes with every guest room which you can use to get around the property.
