Peaceful retreat

If you want to try something a little diffrerent from the regular airconditioned hotel rooms this the sun room is for you.No air condition,windows that do not close surround the entire room. The estate is very peaceful and is very near a cliff so you can go exploring.we were the only guests while we stayed and we definitely had a great time.The staff was warm and friendly and catered to all our needs in a very professional manner.Travellers should also rent a moke while on the island.Very island vybe vehicle.

Peaceful Bliss

We took our 3 older children on a much needed vacation. We wanted something off the "beaten' track". My husband actually saw the images from the Old Fort and sold us on it's beauty. He sailed there many years ago and was struck by how unchanged it was! The home did not disappoint-it actually exceeded our expectations.
The Old Fort is breathtaking-it's out of the pages of Architectural Digest! We had a delicious breakfast service every morning and ate at home or locally for dinner. I suggest you rent a jeep to explore the cool little town and eat by the harbor. Seeing Tobago Cay is a must for the day! We also took a day trip to Mustique which was fun, but we were happier to be on Bequia. Quirin, the owner is a gem! Super helpful and accommodating. One of our best vacations ever!

We would recommend The Old Fort or The Sugar House to anyone wanting the best of Bequia and The Grenadines.

The island of Bequia is a very unique and beautiful island. The people here are so relaxed and lovely. We had the most wonderful stay at The Old Fort. We rented the luxury suites which have been built to the highest standards and are set in the family estate in a perfect location consisting of breathtaking views and stunning grounds that we took great pleasure exploring. The staff are all so warm, friendly and helpful. Patrick, our own private chef was absolutely amazing, his food that he specially prepared for us was all incredible. Our host Quirin and his family saw to it that we had the most comfortable stay and were very helpful arranging, transport, tours and boat trips. This is a 5 star experience with a stylish, exclusive feel and is great value in every way. This is the ideal place to come whether it's with your whole family or a large party, they even do weddings here and we can see why. Their hospitality is second to none. Or if you just want a romantic luxury holiday with a true Caribbean experience this is the place to be. The Old Fort far exceeded our expectations and we would like to thank Quirin and his family and all the lovely people who we met that work at The Old Fort. You made our stay so special, we look forward to coming back to Bequia again as soon as possible!
