Buccament Bay is becoming the most talked about place in the Caribbean, a luxury five star resort with outstanding facilities which I got to experience myself. The new resort on the little island of St Vincent has exceptional facilities for the active traveller; these include a Liverpool FC Soccer School, a Pat Cash Tennis Academy, a performing arts centre with classes led by West End professionals, fitness centre and a spa. Scenes from one of my favourite movies, Pirates of the Caribbean were shot nearby.
I flew from London to Barbados, and then jumped on a 25 minute connecting flight to the beautiful volcanic island of St Vincent. Buccament Bay has a beautiful large white sandy beach; the white sand was imported from Guyana as the natural colour of most beaches here is black. Even though an artificial beach, it was stunning to look at and I was so happy to have arrived at this dream destination.
I checked myself into my luxury villa which was very elegant with a vast living room, walk in wardrobe, beautiful bathroom, plunge pool, free Wi-Fi throughout the whole resort, a slick coffee machine and a fridge full of complimentary drinks. As a bonus my villa was right on the beach, I really couldn’t ask for more! I decided to explore the resort and visited HQ, a deli which serves fresh smoothies, juices, Italian ice-cream, crepes, sandwiches, pastries and teas. Even though I’m very health conscious, I’m also a big believer in having things in moderation especially when you do lots of exercise and I couldn’t resist the ice-cream which was delicious. There were more flavours than days of the week and the caramel was divine.
That evening I watched the sunset go down whilst going for dinner at the Bay Beach Club which is à la carte dining. The restaurant is situated at the other end of the beach and they had a live band playing really good music. I was really impressed by the food which for an all-inclusive resort is beyond excellent; they had everything you could want and more on the menu. The fish and steak were very good and the chocolate soufflé was delicious, I don’t normally eat desert but I had to try this one!
