Spice Island Beach Resort provides luxury getaways in a spectacular setting. Located on the island of Grenada in the Caribbean's West Indies, the elegant property encompasses well-appointed suites, a gourmet restaurant, excellent shopping, and so much more. The resort is part of a collective of fine hotels, the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and has been awarded Green Globe Certification in recognition of its environmental and sustainability efforts.
The staff treats the island of Grenada as a natural treasure and guests as welcomed friends. As one of the finest luxury hotels in the West Indies, the Spice Island Beach Resort is also one of the greenest. After Hurricane Ivan blew through in 2005, an ambitious renovation process updated the property, adding energy-efficient lighting, solar panels, and other green initiatives. All of the staff members have been specially trained in environmental matters, while an entire team oversees the green programs.
Keeping the environment in mind does not mean guests have to trade away luxury; the Spice Island Resort accommodations are second to none. The 64 suites are named for different spices and island botanicals, such as the Royal Ginger, the Saffron, or the Oleander Suites. Half of the suites overlook the sandy beaches, while the others feature a garden view. Depending on the suite, you'll find private terraces, custom swimming pools, and outdoor saunas. Guests of the deluxe suites have exclusive access to a concierge ready to answer questions and provide assistance.
Spice Island Resort accommodations, no matter which suite, include flat-screen TVs and DVD players, whirlpool baths, and a balcony, all in air-conditioned comfort. The bath amenities are crafted by Molton Brown, a luxury brand made with essential oils and plant extracts, while the linens were made by Frette, a company established in 1860.
As is the tradition with many of the finest hotels in the Caribbean, the resort offers fully inclusive packages. Away from their Spice Island Resort accommodations, guests will find a full range of things to do. You'll have access to water sports, including kayaking and snorkeling, as well as the nine holes of golf at the Grenada Golf Club. Dining options are included as well, whether you're looking for a meal in your room or a sunset dinner.
The spa at the Spice Island Resort provides another place to relax. One of the few amenities that costs extra, the spa offers a full menu of spa, wellness, and relaxation treatments. Whether you leave with a new hairstyle, braids, or the softer skin, you'll feel much better than when you arrived. You'll also have access to the sauna, whirlpool, and the relaxation lounge. Others without an appointment can pay a daily fee to access the relaxation areas.
The Spice Island Beach Resort, no matter what season you visit or what you choose to do when you arrive, will surround you with luxury. The upscale getaway combines chic surroundings with attentive service. With the cooling trade winds and the air scented with an enchanting mix of flowers and spice, you'll feel a million miles away from home. In reality, you'll be steps away from Grand Anse Beach, a white-sand paradise dotted with purple flowers and the blue waters of the Caribbean.
