Experience true bliss at True Blue Bay Boutique Resort. It’s all about glorious Caribbean sun, sand and sea at this environmentally friendly getaway in Grenada’s Saint George’s, which boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Fresh fare and water views are always on the menu at Dodgy Dock restaurant and bar, and beach bags and cover-ups in stock at True Bluetique, plus scuba gear at Aquanuts Dive Shops. The list of adventures that are available on-site or through partner suppliers also goes on and on, so you can really make the most of your postcard-perfect setting.
Snorkeling off the island, going for a sail, sunning by the pool, relaxing at the spa or lazing in your room are just the beginning of what you can experience – many of the activities are far less conventional and more unexpected. Take Scuba Yoga, for instance, taught as part of an optional three-day program. There are also tango classes, and you can learn to prepare regional dishes or mix Grenadian-rum cocktails with the cooks or bartenders. If you really want to try something new, don one of the mermaid fins and channel your inner little mer-person – after all, you’re basically living a fairytale already.
Rooms and suites
Your abode is comfortably appointed and tropically inspired, possibly boasting a pop of beachy color or teak furnishings. The six, bay- or garden-view True Blue rooms are located next to the pool and offer either a king-sized or twin beds, as well as a kitchenette. The nine, two-level Waterfront suites, meanwhile, are situated by the water’s edge. They offer a bedroom with a queen bed, plus a kitchen, living room and dining room. There’s a spacious balcony downstairs, as well as a veranda on the upper level promising panoramic bay views.
Dodgy Dock opens from early morning to late night, serving continental buffet breakfasts, Sunday brunches, lunches, snacks, happy-hour specials and dinners. Expect filling fare and a great vibe, whether you come for a themed night (Chocolate Thursday, Mexicaribbean Night on Fridays) or just roll by on a normal day or evening for wings or a margarita.
For a truly blissful couple of hours, retreat to Blue Haven Spa. Treatments at this wellness destination incorporate Grenada-grown ingredients, like organic herbs and chocolate, as well as cinnamon, honey, papaya and coconut oil – to name a few. They include massages, body scrubs, wraps and soaks, with salon services also available, to assist you in looking as great as your therapy will make you feel.
You’ll be in the capital of Grenada, a lush island nation that’s home to crater lakes, rainforests, beaches and charming pastel homes, with access to all the tropical activities you could dream of. Take out one of the complimentary kayaks, water bicycles or Hobie cats; shop at the boutique; go for a snorkel; or take an optional class to learn a new skill – tango, Caribbean cooking, mixology, even scuba yoga. The House of Chocolate museum, beautiful waterfalls, climbing-friendly mountains and seasonal turtle-nesting destinations are just a few of the intriguing sights in the area, for when you want a change of scenery.
How to Get There
Ok, the good.... day housekeeping and staff very friendly and efficient. Rooms are large with spacious bathroom. Good products in bathroom. There are two resort cats (Cocoa and Two Face) as well as tortoises.
The bad.... had to kill a roach in the room (flushed it in toilet - see pic). Bought chocolate on the island and chocolate pieces had ants all over them in room in box. Housekeeping saved energy by turning AC off daily but meant the room was very warm if you came back after being gone all day. During turn down one night, our wash cloths were taken but not replaced- the night house keeper was resistant to replace saying she needed the old ones. On the weekend when there was no turn down service, if you took your beach towels out to pool or beach, you didn’t get clean ones until week day with turn down service or until a day that you didn’t take them.
Random- the resort area is hilly so be warned if you have mobility issues. We didn’t, but be warned. Breakfast is standard continental. If you get there early you can get a fresh coconut but those are limited.
Wife and I returned to TBBR with my mom this time after nine years and immediately felt at home. Staff was wonderful and friendly as before, maybe even more so. Grounds were well maintained and groomed. Villa was very nice (oven was not working well, and we understand they are replacing it soon). While wife and I dived with Aquanauts, Mom roamed the grounds and made friends everywhere she went. After one day they all called her by name and. Made her feel part of the family. We haven’t stayed anywhere else on Grenada and don’t feel the need to try anywhere else. TBBR is not too big, not too small and has everything we want and need.
The first thing that jumps out at you is how friendly and attentive the staff is. The rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The restaurants have great food, and there is often live music at night. Wednesday evening they have a street food fair which offered some of the best food I had during a 14 day stay in the Caribbean and the prices were very reasonable. The whole experience was one of the best resort values I have ever experienced. A 5 star experience at a 3 star price.
seven of us stayed there after spending 10 days sailing, we were all surprised at what a wonderful time we had. food truck night, Wednesday especially. live music and dancing the following nights. you can visit with the owners during customer appreciation cocktail hour.
Stayed here with friends as part of a diving vacation. The property is well-run, clean, and staff are excellent -- from grounds-staff, house-keeping to front-desk. Our room was large and comfortable with a neat view of the bay. The food was very good, excellent variety. Wait-staff perfect.
I would not hesitate to recommend.
