Beaches and Pools

Is there a pool on-site?
Gingerbread Hotel's beautifully-crafted suites offer luxury accommodation with ensuite kitchen and large porch overlooking Bequia's fine harbour, just a coconut tree away. Centrally located on Admiralty Bay, Bequia\'s wide and gentle harbour, Gingerbread Hotel is within a few minutes\' walk of Port Elizabeth, the island\'s administrative centre, where you will find shopping, restaurants and the ferry dock. Five minutes in a water-taxi brings you to either Princess Margaret Beach, or Lower Bay, two of the island\'s finest beaches.

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. The cafe on the bayside is a great meeting place.

The new Bequia suites, completed in 1998, offer the island\'s most attractive accommodation. With the sea just a few feet in front of you, the Gingerbread Restaurant on one side and the Frangipani Hotel on the other, with a dive shop and a travel agency on the premises, with kayaks, tennis, and day trips to the Grenadines waiting to tempt you, your holiday at Gingerbread is yours, simply, to enjoy.

The new Bequia Suites at Gingerbread 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. On the upper storey theyare furnished with a romantic four-poster kingsize bed; those on the ground level have twin beds. There is a third bed built into everysuite.Daily maid service is provided.

Bequia\'s climate is close to ideal. Too far south to suffer the onslaught of major hurricanes, cooled by the tradewinds for most of the year, with temperatures ranging from 25 to 33 degrees celsius (70 to 90 degrees fahrenheit), there is little difference in climate over the year. Very little rain falls from January through April. Being a sea-oriented community cool, casual clothes are the norm.
Each suite has it own fully-equiped kitchen although Gingerbread's famous restaurant and a selection of other eating places are right nearby. There is a beautifully-tiled ensuite bathroom in each apartment with ample closet space and a built-in safe.
Bequia is just seven square miles but is the largest and most northerly of the St. Vincent Grenadines, a chain of islands that trails south from the main island of St. Vincent like the tail of a kite. Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Union Island and Petit St. Vincent are all, along with a score of smaller islets, part of the country of St. Vincent & the Grenadines which is independent, but still part of the British Commonwealth.Bequia's most notable feature is the large and inviting harbourof Admiralty Bay which, since the seventeeth century, attract-ed the navies of several European powers, and more recentlyhas exerted its charms on yachts and trading ships from aroundthe world. Gingerbread Hotel is located on the southeast shoreof the harbour on what is known as the Belmont Walkway.
