It is ideal for groups that are seeking something different to the ordinary, those that want utmost relaxation and tranquility in a magnificent location in the Caribbean.

Extremely private yet only minutes away from the best beaches, we are proud to offer a hard-to-find classical ambiance in a beautiful natural setting. The Old Fort has a breath-taking location on the top of a large undisturbed estate that stretches from several hillsides all the way down to the sea. Spectacular views overlook the ocean horizon and the numerous eastern and southern Grenadine Islands. Not only can one see Bequia's close neighbour, the chic sister island Mustique, but on a clear day also distant Grenada, which lies over 50 miles away. The Old Fort`’s property interiors have all been charmingly decorated, with large spacious suites and rooms, all possessing their own character and flair. Numerous indoor and outdoor sitting areas allows one to enjoy lush tropical gardens and the amazing views to the fullest! Several trails lead through the estate where one can discover many colourful birds, island tortoises, and bright green-coloured iguanas.
The Windward Islands, especially the tiny Grenadines, are esteemed to be one of the most beautiful holiday areas in the world. There are masses of beautiful beaches to visit, lots of watersports, snorkelling, SCUBA diving, sport fishing and yacht charters, as well as some interesting shopping in the boutiques and craft studios around town.
St Vincent has its own airport, the Argyle International Airport, with several weekly scheduled flights arriving via a variety of international carriers. If the direct flights aren't convenient for you, there are several nearby international airports from where you can connect with a local carrier (such as LIAT or Caribbean Airways) directly to St Vincent and the Grenadines. Barbados, St. Lucia, Grenada, Trinidad and Martinique, all offer daily flights to St. Vincent. Most visitors find it most convenient to fly into the Barbados’ International Airport, as there are several daily direct flights to Bequia via Mustique and SVG Airways. Guests can book a scheduled flight or opt for a private charter, which is a particularly attractive option for larger groups. If you fly into the Argyle International Airport, you then take a taxi to the ferry terminal, from where it's a one hour ferry ride to Bequia.
