Soho House made quite the splash when the brand debuted its first Caribbean outpost, adding to its global portfolio of hotels, restaurants, and members clubs. Soho Beach House Canouan is located on the three-square-mile island of Canouan in the Grenadines, a destination that has managed to fly well under the radar.
Part of Canouan’s allure has to do with access: To reach the fish hook-shaped isle, you’ll need to hop over on a puddle jumper (or private charter) from Barbados or Saint Vincent, or arrive by sea. With Soho House’s luxurious new West Indies venture, the arduous journey ends with a sweet reward.
Sitting on pristine Grand Bay, Soho Beach House Canouan comprises 40 oceanfront rooms housed inside a series of freestanding structures, all mere steps from the talc-fine shore. As with all other Soho House properties, the brand’s in-house studio spearheaded its redesign, transforming what was formerly the Tamarind Beach Hotel into a seductively chic and contemporary hideaway.
Soho Beach House Canouan is full of modern Caribbeana vignettes; rooms and public areas are finely decorated with vintage rattan furniture, natural grasses, and reclaimed timber. (Some decorative pieces, like Reith rugs, ceramic lamps, and pool towels, are available for purchase on the Soho Home website.) Digital detox is encouraged; for example, the rooms don’t have televisions. Still, those in need of Wi-Fi or free outlet converters to stay connected to the real world will be happily appeased.
Accounting for Canouan’s spare dining options, the tropical retreat boasts several of its own: a deli for light noshes, an outdoor restaurant that focuses on local fare, and a few breezy bars and lounges scattered around the property. There’s also a two-story fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment. While there isn’t yet a swimming pool on-site, plans to build one are in development, as well as a signature Cowshed Spa and rental villas.
There’s no need to be a full-on SoHo House member to make a reservation. With the Soho Friends membership, a new tier introduced a few years back, you can make room bookings at all Soho House properties for a $150 annual fee.
