The Old Fort, Boutique Hotel & Estate in Bequia, West Indies
Seeking an escape from the tourist crowds of the Caribbean? On the charming, secluded island of Bequia, there is a place you can truly call your own. The Old Fort brings the laid-back character of the West Indies to a restored, French-style plantation house that dates back to the early 1700s. Ideal for individuals, couples or intimate groups, this 5-bedroom retreat is tucked into 30 acres of lush tropical gardens with commanding views over the water to Mustique.
You will be enchanted by Bequia's peaceful atmosphere, colorful heritage and natural beauty. A designated marine park welcomes divers and snorkelers with a 7-mile reef, and also offers water activities such as boat excursions, fishing, windsurfing and canoing. Other exciting outdoor activities you may chose to experience could be rainforest tours, hikes to the nearby volcano, golf, aerobics and tennis. Nearby, the quaint waterfront town of Port Elizabeth entices day trippers with its inviting bars, restaurants and craft shops. Spend the morning strolling white or black sand beaches, an afternoon lazing under a coconut tree with a good book, and the evening "at home" savoring fresh barbecued fish and produce prepared with a European touch.

November 2016 a 4 night stay in the sun room what an amazing experience, I fell in love with the room the view the open window and the shower just fantastic..... very laid back, beautiful people so helpful on all matters.... The island is idyllic fab location for the hotel could not have been better.... and lobster for lunch and dinner! When we do visit Bequia again this will be my first choice.... On answering the questions below it mentions a common room for families the hotel has so much space to it you would have no problem in being accommodated for....

We have been coming to Bequia for over 20 years, we travel all over the world and there is something magical about this island...and especially the Old Fort, perched up on the hill with trade wind breezes and views for miles it is like nothing else. We love the open air concept...casual elegance. This place is family owned and they take great pride in providing a warm and inviting stay. We can't wait to return!

The Old Fort was the absolute perfect wedding location. The pre wedding arrangements were handled in such an easy way with Quirin the owner, and also with Miguel the hotel manager. We felt reassured that the day would be great too. There was rain forecast and all the staff went out of their way to make sure we had an alternative to the outdoor location where the ceremony was planned. In the end there was no rain and the day was perfect. Great food, great service, and lovely drinks... can I do it all again please!! Thank you Old Fort for making our wedding such a special day!!

A must! While most people will probably opt to say near/on the beach, we'd highly recommend a few days at The Old Fort. Extraordinary views, amazingly friendly owners and staff and rooms to die for. Oh, the food is bloody amazing as well. It's a truly unique and special place and one that we'd highly recommend.

My family and I had enjoyable two week retreat at Old Fort Hotel. We felt like we found a true gem in Bequia. Old Fort hotel is a place where your stay will be relaxing, exclusive and extremely joyful. When we arrived first time it already felt like we came back home. We were impressed with the views of the Grenadine islands on the horizon, views of the ocean and golden meadows. The nature is just incredible. We booked a suite with a private balcony and ocean views. We were impressed with a perfect balance between authentic touch in the decor and modern amenities to make a memorable stay. Every detail was telling us a story of this majestic place. Hotel's personnel is very polite, professional and sincere. They made us to feel like very special guests. Especially I would like to give my high recommendations to the manager Miguel for his outstanding personality and hospitality; to our server Shar for being extremely helpful and welcoming. Hotel has a restaurant on site where we had lunch and dinner multiple times and had our breakfast every morning. Food was always served in a timely manner and we had a joy to try one of chef's specials that is always on the menu or how they call it in Bequia "catch of the day" - our favorite was Barracuda and local Tuna..just wow! I have never ate anything more delicious. The food at the restaurant is excellent and staff is very well trained. We had an unforgettable time at Old Fort so we decided to extend our stay for few more days because we didn't want to leave. I am already planing our next visit to Old Fort. We will definitely recommend this hotel and restaurant to all of our friends.
