Set on Grenada’s famous Grand Anse Beach, the all-inclusive, four-diamond Spice Island Beach Resort is a peaceful paradise on eight oceanfront acres. The 64 suites are a minimum of 620 square feet, and they have garden (Oleander Suites) or ocean views (Seagrape Suites). The decor features pops of teal, peach or apple-green, and the bathrooms are fitted with luxuries such as large soaking tubs, separate showers, soft bathrobes and slippers, and iPod docking stations. The private terraces spill out onto the sand, while swaying hammocks and chaise longues offer relaxation. The rates include breakfast, lunch, dinner, premium drinks and afternoon tea. Guests can play tennis, take a bike ride, snooze under a beach umbrella, or go snorkeling and kayaking. There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness center, a full-service spa and musical entertainment in the evenings. The elegant restaurant, Oliver’s, serves an eclectic dinner menu that includes dishes such as pan-seared grouper with tomato confit and spice-rubbed duck leg with roasted pumpkin.
In the Area
In addition to beautiful, soft beaches, Grenada is home to the stunning Seven Sisters Falls in Grand Etang National Park — less than 10 miles from Spice Island Beach Resort. Visitors can also learn to sail on the beautiful waters of the island from Clarkes Court Bay Marina, about three miles from the resort. One unusual scuba diving or snorkeling destination is the Underwater Sculpture Park, a growing display of stone figures that are interesting and slightly spooky. Or you can just stay put at the resort and rent scuba gear from the shop next to the hotel and explore the pristine waters along two-mile Grand Anse Beach. Shoppers can browse the stores in the Spiceland Mall, and there’s a vendor market at Grand Anse Beach that offers locally made products and souvenirs. Golfers can head to Grenada Golf Club; for some excitement in the evening, the casual Junction Bar and Grill offers live music and libations.
How to Get There
We visited this hotel for a significant birthday holiday and were not disappointed.In fact it was absolutely fantastic. Our room was beautiful. The hotel food and beverage offer was amazing, and the gardens plus the magnificent sandy beach were lovely too. The best part however was the staff, they were so welcoming and friendly , that they made our stay wonderful. We will defo go back again.
My boyfriend put me in charge of planning our first vacation in 6 years. His only 2 requirements- he wanted it to be spectacular and he wanted it to be all inclusive. A tall order! After much research online I settled on Spice Island. I figured thousands of raving reviews could not be wrong!!!
Well, let me just say that Spice Island exceeded our expectations!!! Right away at the airport we were shuttled to the resort in a nice BMW. The driver was chatty and friendly. We barely sat down before being handed champagne and being greeted warmly by all the staff. Our room was a walk out to the beach and it was so beautiful. The room was clean and impeccable and even smelled good! We were there for a week and thought about doing some excursions. But we so enjoyed the ambiance and beauty of the resort we never left and never got bored. I felt like i was on my honeymoon and I think the staff thought we were! They even learned our names by the second day.
I was in beach bliss with my boyfriend in every single moment. The food was also amazing and the seven course dinners were interesting and different every night. The crowning night was when we got to meet Sir Royston and his family at his very own house. We felt like royalty.
The beach and weather is to die for. No rain- only 15 minute showers that were brief. The water and sand is balmy and warm and not turbulent at all. People were even doing laps for hours!
We will be back at some point. Until then my boyfriend and I sigh at least once a week and say, "I wish we were back at Spice Island"! Book your trip now- you will not regret it! This is a unique 5 start experience.
We are staying here and our observations of IDEAL hospitality are as follows. There's a reason they are ultra luxury six star diamond resort:
-We land and we find their resort chauffeur with our name
-We arrive at the resort and from the security guard to the GM know our name
-The property location could not be better
-The people of GRENADA and the resort are extremely polite and soft spoken
-Everyone in the resort is super nice
-This is generations ahead of other Caribbean luxury resorts
-I give this resort 11/10
-They define ultra luxury hospitality
-We are coming back for sure
We are now coming to the end of our normal eight weeks vacation in this lovely hotel, which improves year on year.
The concept of this resort was the brainchild of Sir Royston Hopkins who is one of the leading hoteliers in this region of the world and he now has the able support of his wife Lady Betty, his son and two daughters which are fully supported by Mr Brian Hardy the General Manager.
Most of this team are visible during the day and visit each table during dinner, if there is an issue a guest can raise this with the owners.
This year the food has been outstanding and each evening constitutes fine dining. The menu changes daily and if you have a special request that will be accommodated.
There are over 220 staff in the hotel which are of the highest quality and must rank amongst the friendliest of any hotel, it is therefore difficult to name anyone specific as outstanding as they all are, from the Concierge to the girls on reception you are welcomed to the hotel with a Spice Island classic special, and that’s when your holiday begins.
The estate is kept in immaculate condition and the gardens are outstanding.
The rooms are kept extremely clean and are well positioned to take advantage of all that this hotel offers from the beautiful swimming pool to the magnificent Grand Anse beach where you can enjoy water sports.There is also a good gym and excellent spa with a long list of treatments.
All the family at Spice are a wonderful team and we can’t wait to come back next year.
We have been to the Caribbean before (st Lucia & Barbados) and stayed at some lovely hotels, however we had never been to Grenada. The beauty of this hotel is that it still has the rustic charm but is definitely 5 star. The food is faultless - my husband fancied steak and salad for lunch and the chef would always accommodate if they could. The drinks were also good quality and were topped up regularly. The staff were outstanding. To name a few Fabian restaurant manager, Cher & Tracy by the pool with Micheal clearing up water after a dripping wet 3 year old. Donna & Antonia waiting on and Nickia in the pod (children’s club). There are many more as all were fabulous and worked so hard. We left a nice tip at the end (it’s not expected)but our advice would be to tip as you go along to ensure the staff who work so hard receive the full benefit.
The actual area itself is quiet and the hotel tends to attract more elderly clientele, I believe in Easter there are more children. We actually enjoyed it though as we met some truly lovely guests who embraced our 3 year old. If you want relaxation with fabulous service then this is the place.
