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 had the joy of spending a week at this fantastic hotel. The staff and service here is excellent, everyone is so pleasant and welcoming.
The food is a real joy and all meals are served to your table, including breakfast. So you may need to be patient, but the food is all perfectly prepared.
If there is nothing on the menu you that you fancy, just ask and the team will come up with some other options.
The hotel blends in with the surroundings and perfectly located on the wonderful beach.
We were lucky to get an upgrade to a beach front room, which was fantastic.
Look forward to returning to this wonderful hotel
The location, food, and service was out of this world. It is not a huge resort, everything is close by, which I loved and not to mention how impeccably clean it is.
The beach is stunning, sand is white and the water is blue, so easy to swim in with the family. We stayed at the sea grape beachfront room, and I HIGHLY recommend this room, we were about a 10 second walk from the patio to the water. In the morning’s this is simply magical and the beach was quiet too.
The servers are all very good, they would come to the beach to offer drinks very frequently. Sher was always super helpful, always eager to assist. The pool, oh wow, again super clean like the rest of resort, immaculately kept by Michael. He was excellent, not only did he look after the pool area, he was so helpful in making recommendations about the resort and the island.
We also had the opportunity to meet the owners, the Hopkins family, in fact Sir Royston Hopkins was at the resort pretty much every day, mingling and keeping an eye on the operations. On the meet and greet night, we had a great conversation with his daughter Janelle!
My daughter had her 9th birthday at the resort and the servers made her birthday dinner so special for her. Big shout out to Aggie and the other servers for making Amrita's birthday so memorable! Including the card, cake and especially the steel band rendition of Happy Birthday!
Lastly, the food is out of this world, well presented spectacularly and the flavours were so incredible!
One of the more beautiful places we've stayed. Toes-in-the-sand beach front suite with a private porch, private hammock and chairs, almost secluded from view.
Very nice, modern decor.
Very comfortable room and bed, with lots of space and a large sitting area, table, sofa and chairs.
Above all, the staff are just wonderful. Everyone called us by name. Everyone wished us a happy anniversary (on the right day). Everyone was willing to go the extra mile.
The chef, and the whole food service staff, were TOP NOTCH. The menus were varied, creative, and great! Food was served piping hot on heated plates (or else cold/chilled, if that was the thing). Wonderful, complex flavors without being over-spiced. Super fresh, local fruits and vegetables, lots of local cuisine, along with classics. Plenty of seafood, but always enough choices for everyone.
Situated directly on Grand Anse ("Big Bay") - beautiful clear water, soft white sand beach. The resort has ample chairs and umbrellas staged for your convenience, with drink service on the beach. Also a nice pool nearby.
Several local dive shops an easy walk from the resort - sailboats, snorkeling, diving, etc. Easy arrangements with no car needed. But we went snorkeling on our own just off of "our" beach and enjoyed it.
Can't say enough about Spice Island Beach Resort. Highly recommended, and definitely a top place in the Caribbean.
If you've never been to Grenada (this was our first time): it has all of the expected "Island life" factors. But compared to other Islands we've seen, we found it to be very lush/green (no dry/desert areas); and a noticeably strong economy and reliable facilities/power/water/etc., without being overbuilt or over-populated. + Grenada is out of the typical path of hurricanes, so they're less likely to upset your plans.
