Spice Island Resort in Grenada

When walking into this stunning property, guests will immediately notice the serene atmosphere – from the lush vegetation and flowers surrounding the property to the wonderful view of the ocean right from the lobby.

Easy Living

The resort staff and the owner greet guests with VIP service as they step out of the car with cold towels and a cocktail. In July, the hotel is very quiet as it’s the island's slow season, perfect for travelers who are looking for a quiet, relaxing time.

A stay in a Seagrape Beach Suite is spectacular. Simple, understated, but elegant, the room is well-appointed but not over-the-top. The key feature is definitely the view, especially with a walkout beachfront room. Though the resort also offers incredibly appealing suites with private plunge pools, nothing beats the beachfront patio of the Seagrape Beach Suite. The beautiful sliding doors open up right onto the beach. Just a few steps, and guests in this room category will find themselves on the warm sands of the gorgeous Grand Anse Bay, one of the most mesmerizing beaches in all of the Caribbean. The room has a king size bed, a spacious bathroom, a living room, and an outdoor area with chairs and a sofa. All the rooms on site have Molton Brown bathroom amenities, and offer chocolate, fruit, a bottle of local liquor, and a mix of local spices – which Grenada is famous for – to take home.

Two is More Than Enough

Though the resort offers just two restaurants, the quality at both is astonishing. Oliver’s is open for breakfast and dinner, and Sea and Turf Terrace & Bar is open for lunch. The restaurants are both á la carte, and the resort features a buffet on Friday nights. Having only two restaurants may seem like a negative, but the quality of the cuisine is incredibly delicious and dishes are made to order. All of the menus rotate daily, so travelers will never eat the same food twice (unless they're vacationing here for more than three weeks).

The hotel is all-inclusive, but the food is anything but all-inclusive in quality. Everything is made fresh and how guests like it. It doesn’t take long to realize they only have two restaurants on site for a reason – so as they can focus on striving for incredibly fresh food every single day of the week.

Why Grenada is a Paradise Like None Other

Grenada is, simply put, wonderful – literally. Full of wonder, the island is lush, green, colorful, and surrounded by magnificent beaches. Travelers find great towns like St. George’s, majestic waterfalls, dense vegetation, beautiful flowers, and exotic wildlife, like the Mona monkeys.

A private tour for about eight hours throughout the island is amazing. A local guide takes travelers all over, pointing out the highlights of the island, like the capital of St. George’s, the Grand Etang National Park, Concord Waterfalls, Grand Etang Lake, the Diamond Chocolate Factory (with tasting!), lunch in the village of Sauteurs, photo ops with the Mona monkeys, and the River Antoine Estate with rum tasting.

In a nutshell, do not leave the island without a thorough tour. It is totally worth it.

Quick Tips

The hotel offers complimentary snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking gear. And the spa is a must! It’s absolutely stunning and beyond refreshing. The hotel is all-inclusive, but don’t expect wait staff to pass by every single moment of the day. They respect guests' privacy and walk up on the beach and patios to offer drinks, but not as often as some people are used to, especially at large all-inclusive resorts.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the hotel does allow children and they offer a small, yet functional, kids club. Those looking for massive programs, tons of children, and huge kid’s clubs will probably not find that here.

One last thing: the beach is public. Although the patio is private to guests of the resort, travelers can expect locals to lay a towel down, too, as all beaches in Grenada are public.
