Palm Island Resort & Spa


Enjoy blissful relaxation on a 135-acre private island paradise, accessible only by boat.

A heavenly and exclusive hideaway, this island has a circumference of only

one-and-a-half miles and is hemmed by hundreds of coconut palms and soft white sand. Explore nature trails and a cycle track around the island, and dive into the pristine waters where you can snorkel and swim, or try out one of the many watersports or excursions on offer. For complete isolation, take to the water in a kayak and find a quiet, secluded beach. If you’d rather lounge away the day, there are five beaches to choose from with hammocks for relaxing in and soaking up the views.

Open for breakfast and dinner, Royal Palm Restaurant & Bar has beautiful ocean views and a menu inspired by fresh ingredients. Further along the beach you’ll find the stylishly refurbished Sunset Restaurant, an ideal spot for a casual lunch and dinner twice a week with a touch of Caribbean flair – enjoy a pre-lunch cocktail at the spacious bar. For romance-seekers, there’s private beach dining under the stars, in the gazebo or by the romantic heart-shaped tree.

Almost half of the resort’s rooms and suites are on the beach, with the rest merely steps away, and many come with sea views. Each of the rooms features rustic Caribbean décor. Palm View Rooms are in the gardens, while Beachfront Rooms have direct beach access from a private patio. The refurbished Sea Grape Suites have a living area and over-sized bathrooms, Island Lofts include plenty of additional space. For true privacy, choose one of the Villas – both the Sea Feather Villa and hilltop Southern Cross Villa with infinity pool come with their own golf buggy.
