When you tell people that you’re going to Bequia, you generally get a blank look in response—no one seems to have heard of it or knows where it is. That’s the reason that this small (seven square miles) island in the northern part of the Grenadines has remained quiet and relatively undeveloped, a still authentic, off the beaten track Caribbean island with beautiful beaches. Sailors know it—the trade winds that blow all year create a sailing nirvana reflected in the “Sail Fast” tee shirts that you see on sale in stalls in the town of Port Elizabeth. But if travelers know the Grenadines at all, it’s usually for its neighbor Mustique, the posh villa laden haven for the rich and famous. Sleepy Bequia never had hotels on that level. But with The Liming, part of the Inverlochy Castle Management International company which manages various Scottish properties such as Inverlochy Castle and Andy Murray’s Cromlix, the island is now making a bid for attention. The resort opened in December.

Tucked away on a beach on the northwest part of the island, the resort is a collection of villas, ranging from one to five bedrooms, either directly off the beach or on the hill overlooking. Each has its own pool, breezy beach house décor and indoor/outdoor lounging areas. What the beach level villas don’t have yet, though, is sufficient privacy; additional landscaping and summer rains are expected to improve that situation by the resort’s reopening next November. (Given Bequia’s truly out of the way location, the resort closes in April for the summer since most of the island closes down too.)
