We just spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Shannas Cove Resort! New owners Greg and Maria are delightful. They are so gracious and friendly! Everyone is friendly and helpful. We absolutely loved our stay! The bungalows are very comfortable and the view from ours was fantastic. The water is so beautiful and clear. And it was fun to adventure and explore! But if beautiful water, friendly people having fantastic beaches all to yourself wasn't enough the food was fantastic! Chef Fabian is an artist! I took pictures of every course which is something I never do. Every course was creative and I was amazed at how many things came from their own garden. I love to cook so I was really inspired! We are active so we walked all over both sides of the island as far as we could from the resort. Fantastic beach after fantastic beach. we loved snorkeling and taking advantage of the Kayaks they provide. But if you like to sit and read a book in gorgeous surroundings this is also your place! Absolutely loved it!

Shannas Cove Resort is situated at a prefect location near the Northern end of Cat island with gorgeous views over the turquoise waters. We tried the famous pizza and we can only agree: amazing. The German owners recently sold this wonderful resort to a couple from Germany as well. We are sure they will continue to keep this place a secret paradise!

My wife and I have a saying - we want to visit everywhere, and because of that we only have time to go somewhere once. Well Shanna’s will likely break that tradition. Everything about this vacation was superlative - from the incredibly rustic yet comfortable setting with beautiful beaches and pristine water to the elegant dining and phenomenal food to the exceptional service. Gabi, Frank, Fabian, Izzy, Garfield, Luna, Rufi and all of the staff made our trip so wonderful. They accommodated our every need and made us feel so welcome. A true gem! Thank you!

Gracious hosts, beautiful accommodations, unspoiled beauty and outstanding food. What more can we say. Loved it so much we booked for another week next winter. The staff were wonderful, the beach is pristine and the drinks are cold. This is a small, quiet place so if you are looking for night life or a party atmosphere this is not for you.

Just spent nine days with Frank and Gabe. Professionally run, super location, superb food every night. Unspoiled beaches, no crowds. Went snorkeling multiple times, rented a car to go beach combing on east shore. Weather perfect.
