This is an exceptional place with exceptional service, quality of food, cleanliness, quietness, seclusion and all round paradise. Clear waters, beautiful beaches, spacious rooms, very well equipped gym, tennis courts, cycling. This place really is a dream and met all of our high standards. We wouldn’t hesitate to visit again.
If you ever wondered what it is like to have your own dessert island (with great food and service) this is somewhere you must go. Beautiful island with fantastic beaches and clear sea. We had a perfect week of relaxing in luxury. The boat trips were great and empty we swam with turtles, had great treatments in the spa. The tennis court, gym and pool were also great.
What an incredible magical place. Private island living at its best. It was a perfect escape from omicron as you barley saw anyone else besides the amazing staff. Beautiful beaches, incredible food... you can spend your days exploring and doing water sports, or relaxing by the sand. The staff and kati were INCREDIBLE! We will be back! Seriously not enough good things to say about this beautiful island. We also loved all the festive fun Kati had prepared for new years week. 11/10!

We spent 9 nights at Palm Island for our honeymoon in December 2021 and it was magical. We chose one of the superior beachfront rooms. The room was light and airy with plenty of closet space, a beautiful bathroom, a coffee maker/tea kettle, and a fridge restocked daily. Just outside was a beautiful outdoor bed, two lounge chairs, and an outdoor shower that was perfect for washing the sand off our feet. We absolutely LOVED our room, but the resort is small and well-arranged so even the palm view rooms are super close to the beach and have very pretty views. We happened to go during the slow season – after thanksgiving but before Christmas. The resort was so private. There was so much space to relax and we never had to worry about getting an umbrella. We couldn’t have wished for anything better for our trip. When we arrived, they welcomed us with a hibiscus rum punch and the stress of all that travel faded away immediately. They knew that we had a long day, so they showed us to our room that first night, where we found a bottle of champagne, and let us delay our formal check in until the following morning. For the next 9 days we truly felt like we were in paradise. We found Palm Island to provide the perfect mixture of relaxation and activity. The main beach is beautiful and spacious, with plenty of chairs, tables, and shade available. The warm water is crystal clear. There is water sports equipment available to use at your leisure. We enjoyed the glass bottom kayaks, the stand-up paddle boards, and the hobie cat. There is a reef right between the docks which provides a great place to snorkel and see tropical fish. We also enjoyed taking the bikes around the island and visiting the hammocks at the more secluded beaches. A short hike led us to breathtaking views of the entire island. And after all that activity we got take a quick dip in the water, lay on two of the many lounge chairs, and sip on some delicious frozen drinks – the Bushwacker was our favorite! The dining was excellent as well. There is no room service, but we found ourselves more than satisfied with the three meals per day. All the food was fresh, delicious, and we enjoyed the multiple courses, from the bread and butter to the desserts. The sauces were amazing and the eggs benedict/French onion soup/coconut brownie were some of the best things we’ve ever eaten. We looked forward to every meal. The staff was very friendly and attentive, and we truly felt like we got to know them over the course of our stay, even participating in volleyball games with some of the team. The staff played a large role in making our experience so great. We enjoyed the snorkeling excursion to Tobago Cays as well. We went twice and saw sea turtles up close both times. The private gazebo dinner provided a romantic evening and we loved the stunning views while enjoying our picnic hammock lunch on our final day. The spa was also fantastic. We can’t wait to go back to Palm Island. We spent 9 wonderful days enjoying the beautiful views and the slower pace of life. We would recommend Palm Island to anybody looking to get away from it all and spend some time in paradise. (Also – Sincia at Elite Islands was so helpful in arranging our trip after we had to rebook our flights a few times with covid changes. We’re so happy it worked out in the end)…
