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.

Incredible vacation for my husband and I. We wanted a quiet spot where we could relax and destress and Laluna is the perfect place for this. With a limited number of guests and a beautiful quiet beach this place feels like a real retreat. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. Absolutely stunning property.
Highly recommend

Day Pass - Worth It

My wife and I visited La Luna Hotel using a day pass. We enjoyed morning yoga, a couples massage, lunch, and the breeze on the beach. The yoga was relaxing and not your typical yoga. The couples massage was amazing. Best massage we've experienced. The lunch was good and the relaxation was better.

A Grenadian Gem

Laluna Hotel is superb! It is not the most expensive or the most luxurious hotel in the world, but it is a true gem for many reasons. First, Laluna is located in a quiet part of Morne Rouge with a fantastic beach that--although not private--is secluded and uncrowded. The clear, turquoise-colored Caribbean is just a footstep away from the soft white and black sand beach. Delightful sea breezes are often enjoyed on the beach and around the resort. Second, the Caribbean and its glorious sunsets can be seen from nearly every place in the resort including from the porch, the plunge pool, the outdoor bathroom shower, and bed of the Deluxe Cottage. Third, the Deluxe Cottage is clean, spacious and decorated with a colorful Balinese emphasis. The large walk-in closet is a nice touch. Fourth, the resort offers a stunning outside yoga Pavilion, a gym, a lovely Asian Spa where two Balinese therapists do their magical massages, an inviting bar and lounge area, water sports equipment, a library, and an open restaurant that serves plentiful and tasty Italian and Caribbean dishes. And last but not least, the Laluna Staff is amazing! Everyone is welcoming, helpful, and always friendly. Tracey, Tehara, Renee, Lystra, Enika, Urban (He also plays the steel drums on Sunday nights!), Dwight, Kelly, and Dennis all deserve special recognition and a big thank-you. Laluna is truly a wonderful and special boutique hotel. A one-time stay is a worthy experience; a return is a definite must.
