The Splendors of Spice: Spice Island Beach Resort

The Splendors of Spice: Spice Island Beach Resort

IF YOU’RE GETAWAY-READY, and in serious need of island bliss and a soft sandy beach amidst sea grape trees and swaying palms, then the superb luxury lifestyle of Spice Island Beach Resort is calling you. Beautifully situated on Grenada’s famous Grand Anse Beach, this resort offers discerning guests the ultimate all-inclusive, luxurious experience. Choose from a range of 64 expansive suites and stunning retreats in this pristine hideaway, where many guests return year after year for the wonderful, attentive service and the world-class amenities offered by a warm and welcoming staff.

The truly spectacular accommodations are dotted throughout the property – some on the ocean, and others, with their own private terraces or balconies, personal gardens, four-poster beds and plunge pools, are within the grounds and near the lovely pool. All are exquisite, well-appointed and stylishly decorated with a contemporary Caribbean décor, offer an in-room mini bar and included Wi-Fi, and the entire property is smoke-free.

All meals, premium cocktails and house wines are included, as well as all non-motorized watersports, golf green fees, tennis and use of bicycles. Try paddle-boarding, head out on a snorkeling adventure or enjoy a paddle in an ocean kayak. If you’re interested in time at the Spa or in the Yoga Pavilion, both are available for a charge and there’s also a small shop and a fitness center. There are two restaurants that offer a choice between casual, toes-in-the-sand moments, to fine dining at Oliver’s – and of course afternoon tea is served in this colonial and somewhat British outpost, still run by Sir Royston Hopkin and his family.

This is the life of Spice – renewal for body and soul and an exquisite resort, ideal for weddings, honeymoons or vow renewals and for the romantic in us all.
