Young Island is the most northerly island in the Grenadine chain of islands and is a 12.66 acre tropical island located 200 yards South of mainland St. Vincent. The hotel on Young Island is a privately owned, luxury one and the island is occupied exclusively by the hotel.
Legend has it that 150 years ago the Carib Chief Chatoyer — of the original inhabitants of the region — traded the island for a stallion owned by the then British Administrator, Governor Young, hence the origin of the island’s name.
Young Island was eventually developed into a luxury resort some 48 years ago by John Houser of the Hilton Group. In 1979, ownership eventually moved to its current Vincentian owners, Sir Frederick Ballantyne and Mr. Vidal Browne.
The resort has been in the same ownership for thirty five years, and a new owner or partner is now being sought. The accommodation consists of 30 Guest Cottages with sea views, open-air garden showers, and private patios. Additionally there is a spa and a har-tru tennis court.
