paces from the sea and only a hundred more from Port Elizabeth (one of
the most adorable towns in the Caribbean), Gingerbread would be desirable
for its location alone. But the inn is also fabulous looking with delicate
fretworks, curlicued rooflines, and gables with rose medallions - all hand-tooled
by Bequian artisans. Its nine rooms are smart, styled with greenheart-wood
four-posters, clay lamps, straw mats, and bright banquettes."

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.
