The lovely Villa Lisa exceeded our expectations for a private and exclusive honeymoon setting. Canouan is a very unique island in the Caribbean. We were looking for a place that neither of us had ever been and we did a lot of research all over the world to find the right place. Canouan interested us because of the new Pink Sands club, the exclusivity, privacy and the natural beauty. We flew from the US into St. Lucia and then SVG airlines to Canouan. The resort picks you up at the airport and takes you to the front desk for check in and then to the Villa. We had a tour on day 2 of the expansive grounds and facilities of the resort. Service is friendly & exceptional, the best I've ever encountered in the Caribbean for sure. Meals at all restaurants were expensive, but high quality. Our favorite was the Beach BBQ which had a wide array of delicious food and live music. The new Pink Sands Club is over the top beautiful with exceptional decor and scenery. The pool setting is simply breathtaking and we enjoyed relaxing in a cabana with a view of the pink umbrellas and turquoise ocean.
Villa Lisa is one of the more secluded villas in the resort which gave us the wonderful privacy we were seeking. The house is surrounded by tropical flowers and greenery. We had use of 2 golf carts which the resort staff fill with gas while you are out and about at the resort, so you don't even have to think about it. The resort facilities are between 5-10 minutes away by golf cart. The villa is mediterranean style and each room opens to the outside. So even a large family would have their own personal space as well as lots of indoor/ outdoor living areas. Each room has it's own very nice bathroom, unique interior colors, thick walls, and beautiful views. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals if you choose. We mainly ate at the resort, but discovered a great italian grocery/deli at the Tamarind resort which is a 5-10 min car ride away so we cooked a meal at the villa one night. The resort provides a car with driver to pick you up for outings. We rented a sailboat for a trip to Tobago Cays and Mayreau one day. Gorgeous waters and snorkeling and a great lobster lunch. From the sailboat we could see Villa Lisa high on the hill from most every vantage point. It is truly a landmark on the island. We were lucky to have a full moon during our stay and enjoyed the starry view from the jacuzzi with more than 180 degree ocean views. It was a perfect stay - thank you Giovanni!
