One Caribbean hotel is among six international hotels to be awarded an AAA (American Automobile Association) Five Diamond Award in 2020.   

The Mandarin Oriental Canouan in St Vincent and the Grenadines has been placed on the coveted Five Diamond list which comprises just 119 hotels.  

This is the first time the Vincy hotel has made the cut.  

The association states this exclusive group represents less than one percent of the nearly 60,000 AAA Diamond establishments across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.  

Stacey Barber, AAA Travel Information and Content Executive Director said: “AAA Five Diamond hotels and restaurants represent the best of AAA’s transformed Diamond program. These hotels and restaurants consistently exceed expectations by providing their guests with highly personalised, memorable experiences. They truly represent the upper echelon of the hospitality industry.”

AAA in its inspection note for the Mandarin Oriental Canouan, described the hotel as being a world-class property, unique for its remote location, offering just 26 large suites and 13 villas, as well as a private beach, impressive marble work throughout and leading-edge technology and enhancements.  

To earn the coveted AAA Five Diamond designation, hotels and restaurants must pass a rigorous evaluation that includes unannounced, in-person inspections, anonymous overnight stays for hotels and review by a panel of experts as an additional step to ensure credibility.  

Other Caribbean hotels which are currently on the AAA Five Diamond List include:
