Patrick Hepburn - General Manager, Chef if required and Concierge

A close friend of the owners, Patrick worked as a chef at Round Hill, one of Jamaica’s most renowned hotels. On Bequia, he has acted as head chef at some of the best restaurants on the island, and has been in constant demand at private houses. His invaluable network of contacts - includes the best suppliers of fresh meat, fish and vegetables - and means that he is always able to produce fresh and delicious meals at your convenience. Patrick is just as happy taking daily meal requests from guests as he is crafting his own menus. Many of our clients use him for lunch or dinner as they wish. We certainly feel it makes a great difference to our holiday when all things culinary are taken care of.
