We landed at the small airport and were met by an uber-efficient Raffles Resort concierge, who drove us to the resort in a private car. During the 20-minute drive we learned that Raffles is pretty much IT in Canouan. Not a whole lot else to do. That's OK, because the resort is supposed to be stellar.
The reception area was absolutely gorgeous, and I was thrilled to be upgraded to a junior suite! I felt like I won the lottery, especially since I am getting a very special rate as it is.
Our room is spacious and completely wonderful. We showered up and headed to the special BBQ meal, A.K.A. "The Great Rip Off." The live music and beach setting was quite nice, but there was a dearth of vegetarian-friendly foods on the buffet. Bottom line: we paid $200 for a salad, dessert, and one drink each.
Thankfully, our cushy wonderful room relieved some of the pain of being completely extorted off for dinner...
