Carnivals in the Caribbean – a mixture of fun, art and magic

The Caribbean offers an irresistible cocktail of fun and frolic to ease the mind and uplift the soul. The dream of a private and exclusive island with the convenience of world class facilities is made possible with Raffles Canouan on Canouan Island. Dip your toes in the bluest waters and feel the sand tickle your toes as you walk the shores of this paradisiacal island that has seen the likes of the rich and famous. The island is surrounded by a government protected coral reef, which makes it the perfect setting for snorkelling. The villagers are welcoming and one of the best ways to explore Canouan Island is by foot. The island has a natural harbour for those wishing to dock their boats, and with the addition of a new airport runway, private jets can safely land to drop their passengers off. This five star retreat of the Caribbean gives you a good excuse to escape the worries of the world, and sink in to the lap of luxury created by the world famous Raffles brand.

Carnivals were introduced to the Caribbean around the time that the European Catholic colonies took hold of the islands. Alongside this, the locals borrowed traditions and cultural aspects from their African counterparts to create carnivals that have been replicated across the world. Carnivals to the Caribbean’s are a celebration of their cultural diversity and heritage. Much preparation and creativity involves a Caribbean Carnival, which occur right through out the year, for numerous occasions.

The costumes are elaborate with decorative head masks and steel drum bands following through the streets. The burst of colour and the festive mood as people dance on the streets is infectious. Beauty pageants and musical shows are also part of the carnival celebrations. The local food is also an experience by itself, try out local favourites and some local brew, letting the spirit of the Caribbean envelop you.

Explore the diversity and splendour of the Caribbean from any one the many Caribbean hotels available. Yet, few five star hotels Caribbean match up to the elegance, grandeur and level of service at the Raffles Canouan. Enjoy the casino designed and managed by Donald Trump himself, or play a round of golf in the 18+ hole course designed by Jim Fazio when you make a reservation at any of the rooms, suites or villas of Raffles Canouan.
