Inside The Boho-Chic Beach Resort Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Stayed At In Canouan

The royal couple stayed at Soho Beach House Canouan, a tropical outpost of the members-only club Soho House. It’s easy to see why: nestled right upon the private Grand Bay Beach, many of the 40 rooms at the resort are situated right upon the sandy expense, meaning guests can wake up and walk right outside to the ocean. A beach bar sits right underneath the palm trees, serving up spicy picante cocktails and margarita pizzas. Meanwhile, a “deli” offers fresh smoothies made from papayas, coconuts, and pineapples, as well as wine and frozen yogurt. If that doesn’t sound relaxing enough… there’s also a Cowshed spa.

Earlier this week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were spotted outside a gourmet food shop at the Sandy Lane Yacht Club on the Caribbean island of Canouan. He wore shorts, while she wore a flowy dress with a Panama hat, as they strolled hand-and-hand down the marina. As grainy as the paparazzi photos were, they oozed an air of laid-back luxury. (Which is really the ethos of Canouan itself—the isle, which is part of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, is often referred to as a place ‘billionaires go to escape millionaires’ due to its remote locale, pristine beaches, and marinas for mega-yachts.)
