Overview

The Review

When you mix a former Italian fashion industry exec with the sleepy island of Grenada, the result is Laluna, a stylishly rustic 16-villa resort. Hidden in a mini-jungle on a hillside, the honeymoon-friendly haven is just steps from the beach and the spice-heavy rain forest that earns Grenada the nickname “Spice Isle.” The surrounding silence can be startling at first, and then utterly seductive, especially when the loudest sound is the bartender’s blender whipping up a frozen daiquiri.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2559/prop-58219-1332183760-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Cottage Suites are 300 square feet, with private verandas and ocean views.”}It’s easy to create a ritual here: breakfast on your private patio, yoga on the beachfront pavilion, beach time and then a treatment at the Balinese spa, where individual rooms are open to the sounds of the sea. And when you’re not engaging in that routine, one of the 16 guest villas will be a diverting sanctuary.

The individual cottages are staggered across a hillside with views of the beach and ocean. Rooms are simply, colorfully decorated — no use in competing with the great outdoors — but have luxe touches such as open-air showers and little plunge pools that tempt guests to bathe au natural. (The surrounding greenery guarantees privacy.) Although the pool is entertainment enough, there are flat-screen televisions and iPod docking stations as well.

One of the many highlights here is a meal at simply named, Laluna Restaurant. Owner Bernardo Betucci looks to his native Italian shores for a menu of delicious handmade pasta dishes like fettuccine ragù and a wine cellar stocked with selections from the Veneto to Tuscany. Local dishes like pumpkin and ginger soup and lamb with curry risotto are also outstanding.

In the small alfresco dining room, I feasted on a simple but delicious fried zucchini flower stuffed with goat cheese and listened to the ocean waves in the backgrounds — both quiet delights that get to the heart of Laluna’s appeal.

Wonderful Boutique Hotel with Incredible Views
Reviewed 1 month ago

This was our first trip (of many hopefully) to Grenada. This was our honeymoon trip and we chose the La Luna because it's the perfect romantic couples hotel. The staff are wonderful, they greeted us and took our suitcases to our cottage, and then sent us to the bar for a delicious Grenadian Rum Punch on the house! Our wonderful cottage was furnished beautifully, had its own little pool on the terrace and had a gorgeous view of the ocean. With only 16 cottages/villas on the property, you practically have the beach to yourselves, and the incredibly helpful staff are always available for anything you might need. We even got to meet the owner Bernardo, his wife Wendy and their beautiful family.
We highly recommend staying at La Luna, We had a wonderful time and wished we could have stayed for longer.

Most incredible romantic resort EVER
Reviewed 1 month ago

My wife and I have had the privilege to visit a lot of different island in the Caribbean over the years. We have stayed at both boutique and mass-market resorts (Sandals for example) and LaLuna is by far our favorite resort of all times.

Location:
The resort is completely private with a large beach that has natural barriers on both sides that prevents people from strolling onto the resort (no beggars or pushy vendors). The resort is on a hillside which provides amazing views of the ocean. The resort faces west so you are guaranteed the most amazing sunsets every single night, and the sun is gentle in the mornings if you want to sleep in. The individual cabins are very nice and provide amazing privacy.

Resort:
The resort is the Caribbean boiled down to its essentials. No crazy pool music, no contests, no activities, no crowds. It is beach, sun, the sound of the surf, and yoga by the beach in the mornings. The resort pool is nice, but honestly we might have seen 2 people in the pool all week. With the gorgeous beach right there, nobody felt the need to use the pool (plus the rooms have individual plunge pools with amazing views).

Service:
Everyone was amazingly polite and helpful. In fact, tourists are treated well everywhere you go on the island. It is clear that all Grenadians appreciate and want more tourists to come visit.

Food:
The food was good, but if you eat every meal at the resort, you might have to eat the things you loved more than once at the end of the week. The menu does not change, and the specials are often the same. We did the European plan with breakfast and dinner. It was perfect. BTW, breakfast is served until 2pm!!!!!! Love it. If you decide to eat out for dinner, you can trade a dinner for lunch to provide flexibility.

Yoga:
Neither my wife nor I have ever tried yoga. It was divine. The yoga pavilion is right on the beach and the constant breeze cooled you off the entire time. The sounds of the birds, the wind, and the surf made it almost a life changing experience. Plus, yoga starts usually between 9:00 and 9:30. No need to rush your morning. In fact, as you stretch, you can watch the hummingbirds feed on the flowers while you do your yoga.

Island:
Make sure you explore the island. The rainforest interior of the island is stunning with all of its waterfalls. The city is vibrant and very clean. Not many tourists around and it really felt authentic. We felt safe and enjoyed exploring the fort and enjoying the views. In fact, the entire trip felt like we were the only tourists on Grenada.

Summary:
If you are looking to find a quiet, romantic resort, in a serene setting with authentic and polite people, it doesn’t get better than. Grenada and LaLuna.

Westin Amenities with Unique Island Ambiance
Reviewed 2 months ago

I am pleasantly surprised, after some of the reviews, how nice this property is.The staff is extremely responsive to every request. We stayed in room 14 on the hillside, which is an easy walk down to the restaurant, pool and beach, and they bring you back to your room in a golf cart.While you would think the rooms closer to the beach would be better, and they are more expensive, but your view is often blocked. On the hillside your view is unobstructed and you have a direct view of beautiful sunsets. If you want an island flair, with all of the amenities including your own outdoor plunge pool, outside deck with chair, table and couch, and large rooms, then ths is a great choice. While Grand Anse Beach gets all of the attention, it is more commercialized, across from the mall and more touristy. Laluna is only 5 minutes away by car but a world away from the hustle and bustle.

Day Pass Was Excellent
Reviewed 2 months ago

A day pass includes a two-course lunch, 1/2 hour massage and two drinks. Well worth it to be in such a beautiful place for the entire day. Very relaxing, And the Balinese massage was sublime. They do a pressure that is really unique.

It's like God has dropped heaven on earth
Reviewed 2 months ago

This was my first holiday with my family in Grenada. Upon our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the staff and especially by our friends Bernardo and his wondeful wife Wendy. They took care of our every need.
We were shown to our beautiful villa which had a breathtaking view of the ocean. Indonesian inspired bed, furnishings and an incredible swimming pool on the terrace.
The staff, entertainment, food and drinks were perfect, and the hotel itself is simply stunning.
The restaurant serves excellent Italian food with a tropical twist.
Everything here is styled around the theme of Indonesia. The SPA and the balinese therapists really do make you feel like you are in Bali.
I'd highly recommend anyone to stay at La Luna, We had the holiday of a lifetime and were treated like royalty. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.
