My wife and I had the good fortune to stay at Tropical Hideaway this past week. It was a milestone birthday as well as a milestone anniversary trip and important that the property we chose to mark the occasion was very special, intimate and allowed for a big exhale from the busyness of life. It turned out to be all that and so much more!
After reviewing the many options of where to stay on Bequia, we settled on the Hibiscus Cottage at Tropical Hideaway. We are so very glad we did! Through hard work, vision and attention to detail, Julie and Martin have created a magical place in the Caribbean on an Island that is reminiscent of the Caribbean many years ago. From the moment Julie met us coming off the ferry and Martin greeting us upon arrival at Tropical Hideaway with his infamous and deliciously potent rum punch, their warmth and attentiveness to every little detail during our stay was very appreciated. Whether it was making sure we had hot coals burning on the grill to cook some local lobster, ensuring that our provision requests were in our fridge upon arrival, or available to answer questions, they went above and beyond without ever being intrusive. Martin and Julie’s attention to their guests extended to their support staff as well. Annie, Keisha and Marlon make you feel welcome and relaxed and help keep the beautiful gardens and grounds well tended and the entire place immaculate.
The entire Tropical Hideaway property is well thought out and envelops you in absolute comfort and unbelievable views. The beautiful Hibiscus Cottage was very private, provided breathtaking views, was well appointed and felt like our home almost immediately. During our stay we met some great people by the infinity pool and shared many stories, laughs and lifelong memories. At the invite of our new friends and through Martin and Julie between guests, we were also able to tour the other accommodations at Tropical Hideaway. Each lovely accommodation was a unique oasis on to itself, and would make it difficult to decide which one to choose next visit (though we absolutely loved Hibiscus).
We have been fortunate over the years to visit many islands and different properties, thinking that life is too short for repeats. Well, Tropical Hideaway has changed our minds in that respect, it is that special. An extraordinary facility owned and managed by extraordinary people. We would highly recommend Tropical Hideaway on that special island that is Bequia.
