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
Spent February 2-9 with this resort. Wonderful dive operation. Aquanauts was top notch. Bugsey at the helm, Bruce and Myron made each dive a memorable one. Kendra took good care of our room and Alicia was a good concierge. Enjoyed the spa services and Leah in the restaurant. Food was nicely prepared. All in all, a great trip.
We arrived on a Wednesday evening right in the middle of their weekly street market. The restaurant was crammed with people and vendors and when we eventually found out what to do, we had some fabulous food but we are still not sure what it was – there was so much choice. We did change our room after management offered an alternative – a great move with a balcony overlooking two of the pools and the small bay. The staff couldn’t do enough to help us and the Dodgy Dock restaurant was a great place to eat, drink and meet people. Food in the evening was often themed and supported by the evening’s entertainment. Perhaps service was rather slow but when the food and drinks did arrive, it was usually good and far too much for us but we struggled on –the sticky chocolate pudding was something I thought you would only get in heaven. But then you must realise you are in the Caribbean and based on the rum and chocolate– Grenada.
We were not interested in the diving and snorkelling that was on offer, but overhearing the conversations at meal times, those hardy souls always enjoyed themselves. We took the lazy option and took advantage of the curtesy bus to the fabulous Grand Anse Beach with its bars and craft centre which made for some great swimming and long walks along its fine white sand. It was interesting to see there were special prices for loungers when there was a cruise ship in town.
A lovely friendly resort and you knew where you were - in Grenada.
Never disappoints! Great service, helpful staff, pools are empty and access to kayaks and Hobie Cats for sailing in the bay. Great food and entertainment at the Dodgy Dock. The Fish Bites and BBQ are a favourite!!
We stayed in this hotel last november for two weeks. When we arrived we were put in a room that had quite a few steps to climb. When we booked our holiday my husband did not have a probelm with hes back which was May,18 time but since then has had a a real problem resulting in him having to have a operation (Monday 11th Feb, 19). So for him the steps were big problem. Anyway we decided to ask if there was any possibility of moving. We were told that the hotel was full and that they would see what they could do. That evening they were having a rum cocktail evening for new guests, which we attended. Whilst we were there we were introduced to the owner of the hotel so we explained our situation to him. Well to cut a long story short, within a day we were shown by Mary (a realy lovely lady and a great asset to the hotel) one of the hotel managers a realy lovely room on a flat level by
the beach pool. The iceing on the cake was that we were also given the top lounge with plunge pool and wonderful balcony. The whole experience of our holiday there was fantastic. The staff (and i mean everyone) couldnt do enough for you, the food was great, wonderful cocktails and our conversation with the owner and mary most days was great. W e will of course be returning at some point but would like to bring our family with us. We felt that we were staying with friends the whole time we were there so felt very at home. Thank you all for making our holiday so great. Just one more thing to add a special THANK YOU MARY for arranging for seats together on the plane home.
The title says it all. It is a decent hotel, but there was very loud dance music until 12am, there was no hot water in our room, when we called they sent someone who did nothing, and then the woman in the gift shop gave me the wrong change which I realized later was on purpose because she took the price tag off of the item before giving it to me - and it was suntan lotion so it’s not like it was a gift. Totally took advantage of the fact that I was not sure of the exchange rate using EC dollars. Very disappointed
