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
There are 5* Caribbean resorts and then there is Spice Island Beach Resort. This is in a league of its own.
This is my 4th visit and each time I wonder if it can be as good as the one before. It surpasses it.
This time I was travelling with a mother who has some mobility issues. They were incredibly accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. When a request is made that maybe out of the ordinary, their response is “Let me see what I can do” and before you know it, you have your hearts desire.
Every single member of staff is amazing but a special shout out for Michael (pool), Devon (bar), Martha (restaurant) and as always the most wonderful Hermian (manager).
I am in mourning at having to leave today but already excited at the prospect of coming back.
Well we here again, and another wonderful holiday behind us.
I think this is our sixth time here, which is remarkable considering we never normally go back anywhere!
We have stayed in some very high quality hotels all over the world, but this one is special.
This is an all-inclusive resort, but do not confuse that with the ordinary all-inclusive resorts that you see throughout the region, this one is very special and the food & beverage are of exceptional quality (even the house wine!)
What’s different? Just about everything! The food is amazing, the warmth of welcome is incredible, the facilities and the rooms are impeccably maintained, and nothing is too much trouble for anybody.
In my opinion the resort has two very key strengths, firstly, the staff, who are amazing, every member of staff knows your name from the gardeners to the general managers. They are friendly, chatty, attentive and just lovely people, as indeed are most of the people you will meet in Grenada.
Our special mentions to Michael, Lynndonna, Shawna & Reannah, but all the staff are lovely.
The second point is that the hotel is run by a family and their management team, not a corporation, and from the perspective of a guest it could appear that running a hotel like this is easy! Of course it isn’t, but everything is controlled hands on and managed meticulously to make it appear that way, which is the skill of a very well run organisation/hotel.
There are things that you could perhaps fault if you really looked for them, but to do so would be picking fault where there is no fault to be picked. To all intents and purposes this is a faultless operation which delivers a perfect, high quality, five-star experience to the guests. One that you will never forget! The revisiting rates here are some of the highest anywhere.......We will be back again for sure!!
My husband and I spent our honeymoon here. We loved every moment of it. Spice island resort is one of the best hotels we have ever been to. The service is incredible and we were lucky enough to meet the owner who is such a nice person and inviting. The food was comparable to eating at a Michelin star restaurant for every meal! The resort does not have much activities but it is so beautiful and relaxing that having nothing to do for the first time didn't bother my husband and I. I love that the resort is "smallish" so extremely private and secluded. This is one of very few resorts I can see myself returning to every year!
