The Malliouhana resort is our new favorite tropical paradise in the Caribbean. We travel regularly throughout Canada, Mexico and the Carribean, checking out some of the top rated resorts referenced by the "Leading Small Hotels of the World", "Conde Nast" and "Resorts and Great Hotels". We were greeted upon arrival by the General Manager, Bart van Deventer, who gave us a personal tour of this outstanding property, which is beautifully manicured and perfectly landscaped. Bart had generously upgraded us to the one bedroom, ocean front villa, elegant decor, large rooms, nicely appointed and 40 feet from the most beautiful beach in the Carribean, ("heck the world"). Meads Bay beach was 2 miles long of soft powdery white sand, with the back drop of the most spectacular turquoise water the Carribean has to offer! The beach attendant brought sorbet mid afternoon to our lounge chairs at the beach! Afternoon tea being served in the main house was also an excellent touch... being Canadian. Dinner was outstanding! The steak and chicken were to die for! Service was great, staff friendly, very romantic atmosphere overlooking the sea, what a fantastic view! In the morning, we were served breakfast on our terrace, overlooking the ocean, very nice! We have stayed at Cuisinart, Cap Juluca as well as Eden Rock in St. Barths which were all excellent resorts. The "Malliouhana Resort" is outstanding, our new favorite tropical "gem" in the Carribean to escape to.....
