Grenada

“The Island of Spice” – A picturesque island from its white sand beaches to its rain forest located in Grand Etang National Park, Grenada offers a diverse experience and some of the friendliest, most accommodating people I have ever met in the Caribbean. Pure Grenada
I am personally familiar with all Islands and Resorts I suggest in my newsletters.

Sandals Grenada was a return visit for both me and my sister, Kelly, who was celebrating a milestone birthday. However on this trip we were able to visit a sampling of other resorts and hotels, both all-inclusive and non-inclusive. We were also able to experience an all day customized tour featuring Fort Frederick, the Annadale Waterfalls, Grand Etang National Park and the Belmont Estate, a fully functional historic plantation featuring organic chocolate production. Mark, in the picture above, owns a spice garden and roadside bar featuring local rums and his own spiced rum concoction.

STAY
Sandals Grenada – Conveniently located only 5 minutes from the airport, there’s not enough noise to be disturbing. This all-inclusive resort, situated on the beautiful Pink Gin Beach, has it all – great restaurants, pools, glorious gardens and a white sand beach.

Spice Island Beach Resort – This all-inclusive historic resort, located on Grand Anse Beach, has been owned and operated by the same respected family for over 50 years. Featured suites are just steps way from the white sand beach!

Silversands Grenada – This luxury non-inclusive resort features the longest swimming pool in the Caribbean plus a Rum & Cigar Bar. With unique architecture, state of the art suites and luxurious furnishings, this resort is one of a kind.

´╗┐Royalton Grenada – Located on Tamarind Bay, this all-inclusive resort recently joined the prestigious Marriott’s Autograph Collection. It’s a spacious resort that includes tailored experiences for the entire family.

Laluna Boutique Hotel – This small intimate, Bohemian hotel, features brightly painted cottages stair-stepped up the hills with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea. The adjacent Enchanted Forest showcases local artists creations.

NOTES
On our last night in Grenada we learned of Hurricane Ian’s closure of the Miami Airport. Before we were even aware our departing flight had been cancelled, the Front Desk at Sandals Grenada had extended our stay 2 nights. A very proactive experience that I value. I always purchase Travel Guard Insurance and was certainly happy to have it in place for this unexpected, but not unwelcome, delay.
