Dine Along The Beachfront
With five restaurants and bars located within Mandarin Oriental, Canouan and another five within Grenadines Estates just a short golf cart drive away, guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to culinary options. Highlights include Asianne, a fine dining restaurant where East meets West, TIDES BAR + GRILL where typical dishes include Conch Salad, Spiny Lobster Ravioli and Salt Baked Whole Reef Fish carved table-side, as well as Turtles Bar overlooking Godahl Beach, transporting you to the Hamptons with its gleaming wood and maritime décor.
Swim With Sea Turtles Or Go Island Hopping
The island of Canouan is part of the Grenadines archipelago, which is made up of 32 islands and cays. If you are keen to explore more of this fascinating area, spot sea turtles, or see where scenes of Pirates of the Caribbean were filmed, the hotel offers plenty of excursions. Think catamaran sailing to the famed island of Mustique, snorkelling trips to The Tobago Cays and deep-sea fishing trips, where you may be lucky to have a pod of dolphins swimming alongside you en route.
Go For The Green
Canouan has the only championship 18-hole golf course in the Grenadines, which rises dramatically from sea level to the 840ft-high rim of an extinct volcano. Considered one of the world's top ten fairways, the par-72 Jim Fazio course offers epic views of the beaches and reef and if you get the timing right, watching the sun go down from the 13th hole with a glass of Champagne in-hand, makes for a magical experience in the Caribbean.
Take A Spa Journey
Caring for the mind, body and spirit is the cornerstone of Mandarin Oriental's spa philosophy. A funicular transports you to the hillside spa, where nine serene treatment suites are nestled overlooking the ocean. Here, savour a wide choice of treatments and therapies delivered by meticulously-trained therapists, as you listen to the sound of the rolling waves. For an alternative wellness journey, unwind with a yoga class or meditation session on a platform overlooking the endless ocean.
Something For Younger Fans
Plenty of fun awaits children at the Kids' and Teenagers' Club (complimentary for children aged three and above), open in high season from 8am to 8pm. Youngsters are sure to be kept entertained with everything from games consoles and Mac computers, to cooking classes and t-shirt painting, and a play area featuring a sunken trampoline and a pirate ship with climbing frames is conveniently situated close to the beach. Babysitting services are available upon request allowing parents to enjoy a child-free evening, and for teenagers, the spa offers dedicated treatments.
