If you sit on a bench around the
Queen's Park savannah on any given day, you will play witness to the
throbbing rhythm of this island. Early morning joggers pass you as
the coconut vendors emerge from their vans, wiping the sleep form
their eyes as the sun sparkles on the dew soaked grass and the poui
flowers drift lazily to the ground creating a carpet of yellow or
pink. As the morning progresses and the shadows change on the
fretwork of the Magnificent Seven buildings, the Prime Minister
arrives for work at White Hall and the street is busy with morning
If it is Carnival Monday or Tuesday, bejeweled revelers will strut
by on their way to meet their ‘band' at the Savannah stage, you may
see J'Ouvert stragglers and a pan side or two. If it is Easter, the
skies above are painted with darting and floating, colourful kites,
much like the whimsical mural in your bathroom.
By afternoon the Savannah is teeming with joggers and becomes a
sporting ground for footballers, rugby players and cricketers, all
carving out a space for their activities. By nightfall, families
will stop for fresh coconut water, or oysters, enjoyed in the golden
light of flambeaux.
Our oasis in Port-of-Spain, a respite from the business of our
lives, and enclosed by the beauty of the colonial masterpieces, the
Magnificent Seven, the Savannah welcomes all, communities, families
and friends to partake in its charms.
We hope that you enjoy the whimsical touches we've created in our
Savannah room and it becomes a respite from your busy day.
