Small but perfectly formed in Tobago

As regular readers will notice, I have featured the Caribbean island of Tobago on my blog before. I've told you about rustic places in the past, but today it's all about a small, exclusive hotel. The Bacolet Beach Club is situated at the Southern tip of Tobago, just 15 miles from the airport.

The hotel was developed by former fashion model Gloria Jones-Knapp, and is designed to be both restful, and luxurious. It is located on a hill side, and has just twenty rooms - each with private balconies and spectacular views overlooking the sea.

This little haven is modern in design, but what I liked about it was that it still has that Caribbean feel about it - some resorts can try too hard and lose a bit of their character. That is certainly not the case here!

The hotel's infinity pool overlooks the half moon bay, and is a lovely spot for socialising. You can enjoy drinks and lunch around here, or at the hotel's beach bar.

It has to be said that the hotel is quite remote, and I'd highly recommend hiring a car - not only so you have the option of going elsewhere to eat, but also so you can explore the island. It's stunning, and you'd be missing out if you didn't see what it has to offer. A taxi is another option, of course, if you're a bit nervous of driving on the Tobago roads! If you'd like more information on the hotel, visit the website here.
