The first US presidential debate is over.

The next one is October 9.

Now, if on October 10 you find yourself booking a one-way ticket to Vancouver, we want you to stop, take a deep breath and consider something:

The Grenadines is a much, much warmer option.

Plus, Pink Sands Club happens to now be taking reservations for that very day to welcome you with a warm heart and a cool cocktail.

This collection of newly built villas and suites is located on a discreet three-square-mile island near Barbados called Canouan, which has gone through a bit of a $120 million renaissance. (No one said renaissances were cheap.)

It’s just the kind of place to revel in the humble pleasures of island life, like infinity pools, three-tiered tanning decks and digitally controlled guest suites. Put your toe into this slideshow for a tour.

While you’re here, you’ll do island-ish things. Lunch on tapas while overlooking the Atlantic. Sip mimosas at the swim-up bar. Commandeer a catamaran to explore the nearby islands.

Or you’ll do none of that.

Instead, you’ll hop a boat to a thatched-roof hut in the middle of the crystal-blue lagoon. You’ll lie on a massage table and watch fish swim through the glass floor while someone kneads your knots into oblivion.

But remember: the fish will be watching you, too.

Chris LaMorte’s favorite lapel: peak. Favorite bulldog: French. Can you offer him a glass of champagne: yes. Often mistaken for: Zach Galifianakis. Often mistakes himself for: Bradley Cooper.
