On My Wish List: Raffles Canouan

I so want to be here right now-- at the Raffles Canouan.  I have friends who have gone twice (with their child), so they must really like it (and have a bigger bank account than I do).  This place is off Barbados, which is a nonstop flight, and then you have to connect to Canouan Island. It has a great kids club (for kids 4-14), a 12,000 square foot pool, and just look at that water.  I imagined it would be so outrageously priced--but I just checked it out (winter and spring breaks are no deal--I was finding rates around $1400 per night including breakfast), and if you go in a less travelled month, like in May (if you don't have school-age kids) , or in the summer, it isn't totally out of reach.  It also helps if you only have one kid like us.  Rates listed for 2 adults and 1 kid were listed starting at $495 including breakfast, but jumped up to $920 for 2 adults with 2 kids.  I am sure you could call if you were really interested, discuss with the manager how the rooms are configured, and work something out that works for you.  Or, you can just look and dream a little dream.
