Grenada – The Caribbean – Where to Stay and Hotels

Sleeping – Hotels – Grenada
Over our 8 day trip to the wonderful island of Grenada we were lucky enough to stay in three of Grenada’s lovliest hotels, but each hotel was truly individual and had a real personality of it’s own.

Spice Island Beach Resort

The stunning Spice Island Beach Resort is owned by much loved and revered Grenadian, Sir Royston Hopkin, who personally greets all guests on arrival and departure. If you’re lucky enough to stay the second week in the month all hotel guests are invited to a private cocktail party at Sir Royston’s stunning beachside home. In all my years of reviewing luxury resorts, this is the first time I’ve been invited to the owners house, it’s the personal touches like this which sets Spice Island Beach apart from all the rest. We met his lovely family and chatted to Sir Royston on his camomile lawns, drinking champagne and rum cocktails.
Spice Island Beach Resort is the ultimate Caribbean, laid-back, luxury destination. From the stunning Almond Pool Villas to gorgeous beach front apartments, the decor is elegant and understated and the service is flawless; each member of staff knows your name. I asked for some crisps (don’t ask!), it wasn’t on the menu so the restaurant cooked up some home made plantain chips especially for me.

The spa offers every treatment from manis and pedis to hot stone massage. Spice Island Beach Resort is a beautiful, chic, elegant resort, with impeccable attention to detail. The location is perfect too, a stones throw from the city centre and right on the beach.

As an alternative 5 star luxury resort you could also try the gorgeous Sandal’s Grenada

True Blue Bay Resort
True Blue Bay is a beautiful family run boutique hotel owned by the lovely Ross Fielden and his family. His wife’s Mexican roots have influenced the vibrant, multi-coloured bohemian decor, with playful, rainbow interiors and ethnic artwork dotted around the grounds. 

It’s all very zen from early morning yoga with Mit Sukha the Haitian instructor, right through to chilled sundowners at Dodgy Dock Restaurant. The vibe is so chilled out, all you want to do is relax, sipping rum cocktails on your balcony, overlooking the picturesque St George’s University and elegant yachts moored on the jetty. True Blue Bay is a wonderfully quirky, beautiful resort bursting with personality, a truly unique experience to those in search of a little Grenadian authenticity.

The picturesque Mount Cinnamon Hotel nestled amongst tropical gardens
With 22 villas and hacienda suites in set in lush tropical gardens, Peter de Savary’s Mount Cinnamon Hotel on Grand Anse Beach is a colourful, friendly resort. High on the hillside with stunning vistas over the bay, beachside massages at the chilled Cabana bar and great cocktails at the poolside bar, this hotel is perfect for familys and groups.

Colourful art work and furnishings adorn the beautiful villas and grounds, the location on Grand Anse Beach makes it the perfect setting from which to discover all of the gems Grenada has to offer.
