Gingerbread Hotel Bequia Reviews
Dec 08, 2007
Located on Admiralty Bay, The Hotel is just a short walk to Port Elizabeth. Scuba, Windsurfing and Kayaking are offered on the premises, and their jetty allows you to take a water taxi to the beach and snorkeling. Each suite has a porch overlooking the sea. Accommodations include King-size beds or twin beds, private bathroom and kitchen. The restaurant and café are open daily.
"Ten sandy paces from the sea and only a hundred more from Port Elizabeth (one of the most adorable towns in the Caribbean), Gingerbread would be desirable for its location alone. But the inn is also fabulous looking with delicate fretworks, curlicued rooflines, and gables with rose medallions - all hand-tooled by Bequian artisans. Its nine rooms are smart, styled with greenheart-wood four-posters, clay lamps, straw mats, and bright banquettes."
Located on Admiralty Bay, this Hotel is beautifully decorated with the traditional gingerbread trim seen throughout the Caribbean. The new Bequia suites, completed in 1998, offer the island's most attractive accommodation. They are constructed with Brazilian greenheart, Italian tiles, and the decorative trellis-work that gives the hotel its name. The bedrooms with adjoining salon open onto a large covered terrace overlooking the bay, just a coconut tree away. This generous covered terrace at the front of each suite is an outdoor living area with comfortable chairs, a dining table and a spectacular view over the bay. The upper storey suites are furnished with a romantic four-poster king-size bed; those on the ground level have twin beds. There is a third bed built into every suite. There is a beautifully-tiled ensuite bathroom in each apartment with ample closet space and a built-in safe.
Each suite has it own fully-equiped kitchen although Gingerbread's famous restaurant is just next door. For more than a decade Gingerbread has been an outstandingly elegant, yet relaxed, restaurant, with a menu ranging from Caribbean to International dishes. Live, non-amplified, music adds charm several nights per week. An outside BBQ is available during the day and a popular coffee shop that serves pastries, cakes, ice creams and of course coffee right on the waterfront.
Dive trips leave from the Gingerbread jetty right outside your door step. Novices can experience a free dive introduction in the shallow waters out side of their suites courtesy of the adjoining dive shop.
A superb honeymoon or wedding destination or just a great hotel for couples looking for romance, style and elegance in one of the most beautiful harbours in the Caribbean at an exceptionally reasonable price.
