We’ve experienced the closest thing to heaven during our week with Gregor and Maria. From our initial planning to our travel, to our stay at Shannas Cove, everything was wonderful! Gregor and Maria are the best kind of hosts. Caring, friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, clean and most importantly, excellent chefs and bar keepers! The meals each day were over 5 stars! I have not one single area of improvement to offer regarding our accommodations other than a wish that it never changes. Between the amazing food, beautiful beaches, comfortable accommodations, astounding views and the best people ever, we decided to not leave Shannas during our week. We hunkered down and walked the beaches, hiked the local man-o-war trail, kayaked to the nearby coves and spent countless hours floating in the crystal clear waters. Night time star-gazing by the beach was incredible, especially on a full belly filled with amazing 3-course meals. The only downside of our trip is our departure. We leave behind a small piece of our hearts as we say goodbye to our new friends on this incredible island. It’s not ‘goodbye’, but definitely ‘see you later’. Keep our villa ready for us, Gregor and Maria, our new friends! Until then, keep living your ‘another day in paradise’ ❤️

Gregor and Maria 5 ⭐️ for the welcoming family atmosphere; very homey for such a beautiful location! Maria can cook and the staff as well. Breakfast was perfect and dinners would have been over the top anywhere let alone a locale as secluded as Shannas ! The clientele were diverse and all so friendly and welcomed me to share their dinner table on more than one occasion always some really good stories . The views create peace and the trails end with secluded and empty beaches . At the end of the day my room had a beautiful ocean view, was spacious , well equipped , and most of all spotless. I cannot wait to return with family ! I could go on and on about the island and people ! All exceptional !

Just spent 10 days at this fabulous place and can’t recommend it enough! The beaches are BREATHTAKING. The rooms are super clean, quiet, spacious and peaceful with beautiful views. The food is OUTSTANDING! Visitors drive across the island or boat in for an awesome lunch, but the dinners…oh my goodness!!!! A different 3 course meal every night that will absolutely blow your mind. Even if you do not stay here - make reservations for a Michelin Star quality dinner at the Shanna's Cover Restaurant!!! But let me tell you about the owners, Gregor and Maria, AND the staff…wonderful people with wonderful hearts! We will miss them but will see them again next year! This resort is a place to disconnect, unwind, relax, and just BE. Congratulations to Maria and Gregor on their one year anniversary of owning this fabulous resort!

Beautiful hotel. So relaxing. Nothing is an effort for the owners Gregor and Maria, who are so welcoming, friendly and great fun! We particularly enjoyed relaxing by the beach, and all of the water sports including paddle boarding, snorkelling and kayaking. The hotel is positioned in the far north of Cat Island, overlooking what is mostly an empty and long beach. Just blissful! The room is comfortable, with a nice spacious shower room and terrace out of the front with views across the beautifully landscaped garden to the sea. Proper wow factor! The food is lovely - especially the salads and pizzas - and every night the owners invite guests to join for drinks at the bar, followed by lovely 2-3 course meal made in the hotel kitchen. Getting to Cat Island is a bit of a trek for those coming from the UK/Europe, but it is so so worth it to be able to switch off properly and relax in a quiet and tranquil environment. If you want to explore the island further, I would definitely recommend renting a car. Thank you to everyone at Shannans Cove for such a wonderful stay! 😍
