Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an unusual and exceptionally peaceful and indeed beautiful place. You can't help but relax and we had a lovely stay here. Don't expect five star; there are only a handful of chalets so staff numbers relate to minimal visitor numbers. But there is always someone to help and the service was fine. The rooms are lovely, but need that extra tlc; coffee making but no teaspoons, that sort of thing. But loads of hot water, the biggest walk in showers I have ever seen etc. Lovely verandas with views that you can sit on for ever; we took beer up to our veranda rather than on the beachbar to watch the sunset. When I say beach bar, again think quiet; just the odd couple perhaps. It is actually well geared up for visiting yachts but the jetty is the wrong side and in a small dinghy it is easier to go down to the very far end of the beach and visit the cafe there. Actually it seems a shame because Tenuta has so much to offer but it is not maximizing its potential. No worries about getting there, small water taxis can take you there quickly through the smoothest brightest turquoise water you can imagine, and then just quickly round the headland which can be a tiny bit choppy but no problems. It is a quick and easy trip to this remote and special place. Birds, tortoises (we didn't see turtles)...and a friendly local dog who greets everyone. For anyone who wants some real peace, it has a lot to offer.

A wonderful place for relaxation and quiet! The cabins are amazing, with such beautiful views, comfortable beds and a nice shower. The beach is clean and you can snorkel along the shoreline; on just on a few explorations we saw a variety of fish, eel and crabs. We also very much enjoyed the food and relaxed atmosphere, and the staff were attentive and caring.
Earlier reviews have stated challenging access by boat, but we had a really nice trip from Clifton with an electrical 4x4 vehicle (last 10-15 min on a bumpy dirt road adds to the feeling of remoteness). The resort has an agreement with the Union Island Environmental Alliance (UIEA), and our driver was really nice, sharing his knowledge about the island, the forest, endemic species etc. It's 100 EC$, but very much worth it. We also ended up doing other activities (birdwatching and kayaking) with UIEA which we both very much enjoyed.

If staying in a select tropical beach front paradise is for you then read on. Unspoilt remote beach with great snorkelling, only 3 rooms! Yes only 6 guests, pelicans diving for fish daily outside your room, passionate staff, hotel only accessible by boat ( so sometimes menu choice is limited) Super yachts mooring offshore to enjoy the snorkelling and excellent sunset shots from the hotel bar.

The experience is quirky but the most relaxing enjoyable stay we have had for a long time. Perfect for those wanting a Robinson Crusoe get away from it all experience

Issues related to stay at Tanuta Chatham Bay 11th - 18th March 2020

1. Transfer from the water taxi at Tanuta was extremely dangerous as the dock had been damaged by a storm the previous day. It would have been safer to have made a “wet landing”.

2. The beach front bungalow we were shown had a badly broken glass front door which had been crudely taped and we were told it was still “safe”.

3. We asked to see the other 2 bungalows, one of which also had broken glass windows, and opted to move to the only one with no broken glass. However none of the bungalows reflected the quality indicated by the price or website details.

4. We had to request the pillow cases were changed as they were stained.

5. There was a Nespresso coffee machine but no coffee pods available or nearby power socket to use it with. It had not been emptied of used pods from the previous occupant.

6. On three separate days they ran out of bottled water for the room (2 bottles of soda water were provided instead), same applied to gin and red wine.

7. On two consecutive days the room was not cleaned nor was the small rubbish bin emptied so that we had to leave empty water bottles by the full bin. We kept the room tidy.

8. For 3 days there was no hot water for the shower. There was no shampoo at all.

9. The electricity cut out on a daily basis because clearly the generator is working at the limit of capacity.

10. The food was very limited in choice, the menus didn't change, food was poorly cooked, sometimes inedible and there was no option for coffee after the meal.

11. The swimming pool was empty on arrival and still not commissioned by the time we left so that was another amenity we had paid for which was not available to us.

12. Hospitality was sadly lacking throughout our stay. The limited staff of 3 were more interested in fiddling with mobile phones, chatting to each other or using a laptop while ignoring rare guests.

13. We were offered one trip to get us out of the way when a catamaran was due in but as that was cancelled the trip didn't happen. We were not offered the 2 trips we were told were included.

14. This is nowhere near or on the same planet as a 4 star resort which it is advertised to be. It is hard to see it getting one star let alone 4.

Tenuta Chatham Bay is a wonderful, remote place with luscious greenery and a perfect sandy beach. When you first see the bay from the taxi boat is the best thing ever, beautiful skies, perfect water and green hills. I have never been on a family beach holiday where were were so close to nature before arriving here.

We met turtles, lizards, lobsters and the most colourful fish ever- even a tiger fish! Make sure you bring snorkelling gear. We went sea kayaking, paddle boarding and also done a hike up to the hills and then to an even more remote beach called Bloody bay. We have also done and excursion to Tobago Cays and are the best lobster ever, swim with turtles and saw string rays and iguanas.

The hosts Antonio and Iwona are the best. They know everyone and everything on the island and make your stay amazing. They even organised a birthday cake for my husband. Everyone is amazing on the staff, Milan in the bar makes the best cocktails and the chef’s special conch fritters are the best! The food was brilliant throughout, we ate lots of fish, conch and fruits. There was a delicious pasta option too for the kids thanks to Antonio’s Italian quality control over the process.

There are four beach houses and the restaurant +bar so it is really small and there will never be masses of people. This is what attracted us to this place. Remote, calm and beautiful. The beach house has everything you need, it is really spacious and the bed is super comfortable . We had the best sleeps.

Overall and amazing holiday! I usually don’t tend to go back to places I have been in order to go and explore new places, but I am absolutely certain we will be back here one day!

Thank you Tenuta for the wonderful holiday!!!!

Recently we have stayed in Tenuta Chatham Bay. My boyfriend and I fall in love in this hidden treasure hotel. Hotel has a private pool and beach where you can find peace and time for yourself. Cottage is located straight on a beach and the view from bed is looking straight over sea. Room is spacious and has really intimate atmosphere. Restaurant makes local specials which are very tasty. Also, don’t forget to get rum punch in the bar – it brings you to a true Caribbean mood.

My boyfriend and I (24 and 21)stayed here for his birthday and never in my life have I enjoyed a trip so much. The food is phenomenal, the water gorgeous. The resort itself is relaxing and quiet if you want to go out and meet people, there are two other restaurants along the bay where boats and yachts that anchor at night will come and eat, making it easy to to meet new people. Our cottage was the smallest, right at the beach but its was more than spacious with a comfortable bed and a large, luxury bathroom. The staff is absolutely phenomenal. We WILL be back!!!! Highly, highly recommended!

It’s an adventure to get here but is so worth it. We came from Carriacou for 3 nights. Travelled over on the MV Pride ( Union to Carriacou and back on Mondays and Fridays), good crossing which took about an hour, Mario the captain looked after immigration for us. We were met by Roseman with his electric ATV to drive us to Chatham Bay, takes about 20 mins and the final part down to the bay is very off road but Roseman knows what he’s doing.
Tenuta is beautifully set on this lovely beach. Only 4 cabins which are stylish and comfortable with air conditioning. Bar and restaurant are very good, lots of cocktails, beer, wine and genuine spirits (rather than the dodgy local ones). They have a pizza oven - yummy pizzas, as well as fish, steaks, chicken etc.
Antonio, Ivana and the team run a really professional and friendly place here. Thanks to Lissia and Jeri-Lee for looking after us so well.
There is snorkelling directly off the beach, kayaks and paddle board also available to use.
There are a couple of beach bars/ restaurants at the other end of the beach if you want a change of scene. Boats moor in the bay and they come ashore in the evening.
Highly recommend Tenuta and Chatham Bay 😍

This truly is a sophisticated, top quality resort, a world away from the large, mass market, 5 star resorts nearby. There is only 4 rooms so maximum 8 people, however there is a continual buzz to the place, with people popping in from the anchored boats for drinks and meals. The food is exceptional (no surprise as the proprietor is Italian) and the choice of wines good. The beach is beautiful and the snorkeling abundant, and there are even some shack bars down the beach for a local drink..........the place just works, it is unique, stylish and not even a hint of mass tourism.

Chatham Bay is a special place. We were sailing the Grenadines and came in for one night. Three days later we were still there. From the time the owner, Antonio, promptly took our reservation by email to coming out himself to tie us up to one of his mooring balls, no detail was overlooked. The beach is lovely, nice saltwater pool, and most importantly nice comfy sofas and chairs in the shade to enjoy it all. The food is excellent. Hint - Although it’s not on the menu they will make you a nice West Indian curry if you ask. Tenuta is not for everyone. If you are looking for a large resort don’t come here. If you like small boutique hotels completely off the beaten path with a genuinely friendly staff, you’ll love it.
