Raffles Resort Canouan Island

"Experienced travelers will quickly recognize Raffles Resort Canouan Island as the premier luxury Caribbean destination," said General Manager Louis Sailer. "Raffles is truly distinctive. There is nothing in the Caribbean like the RafflesAmrita Spa and the new golf course. Raffles is also one of the few five-star resorts in the Caribbean that not only accepts children, but caters to their needs and requirements."

Opened in November 2004, Raffles offers 156 Mediterranean villa-style accommodations ranging from luxury suites with private pools overlooking the Caribbean Sea to spacious guest rooms with garden views. With four restaurants and two bars, the dining options are just as varied -- from the casual beachside Godahl Beach Bar & Grill to the more formal La Varenne, which sits high atop a hill overlooking the resort and serves Raffles' own private-label caviar.

One of the resort's lead attractions is the new RafflesAmrita Spa, which is designed unlike any other spa in the Caribbean. Nine individual treatment rooms are scattered up a lush hillside over Godahl Beach, each housed in its own private thatched roof palapa with one side completely open to the breezes of the Caribbean Sea. Two additional palapas, which sit over the water and are reachable only by boat, will open in early 2005. Each suite reflects a specific color found in the waters surrounding Canouan, and features Asian day beds, private Jacuzzis and custom-made Murano glass from Italy.

The new Jim Fazio-designed, 18-hole Trump International Golf Club also stands out as a Caribbean first. The par 72 course features sweeping views of the sea from every hole, but the most scenic and challenging holes are #12-15, located on top of the island's highest ridge.
