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.

If you are looking for secluded, lush hillside, and relaxing couple of days in Grenada then La Luna Resort is your spot.
Reviewed 6 days ago

We went for a 4 day / 3 night stay for another event on the island and to recharge our batteries. If you are looking for a secluded resort in Grenada for a relaxing time this is the spot. It’s situated on a beautiful hillside with a private beach and pool. The architecture of its bungalow/cottages has a rustic Carribean character that blends in with its setting and if you are lucky a beautiful view of the ocean. Offers yoga daily in the morning and a fitness center. It has a spa on premises w/ services offered by appointment. If you are arriving from a colder climate with achey pains I highly recommend a spa treatment there. I would recommend a package stay that includes breakfast at La Luna. Who really wants to search the island for breakfast every morning ? Had dinner there two of the nights. The entrees we had were also pasta dishes and thought they were delicious. Difficult to judge the whole menu when we didn’t try other things. Overall we enjoyed our stay. They weren’t trying to sell us timeshare packages, and tours and the hotel staff offered great hospitality during our stay. Don’t know if we could of received better service had we gone to a chain hotel to be honest. Most of the people staying at the hotel during our stay were adults looking to relax and some never left the resort during their stay. Wish we had more than four days to enjoy more of the activities the resort and island had to offer. We have stayed on other islands and resorts in the Carribean and understand it can be a hit or miss experience. If I were to return to Grenada, I would stay here again. My expectations were met and sometimes La Luna exceeded them.

This hotel was a bit of a mixed experience. On the positive side, the location is beautiful on a very pretty and secluded beach. Breakfasts and lunch were generally pretty good. Our cottage had a very nice covered veranda with great views of the ocean (it was up many steps but we were fine with that and the view was fantastic). Most of the staff were quite good including housekeeping, the servers at the restaurant, and the ladies at the front desk. We didn't try the free yoga classes but they looked like they would be a great amenity.

On the negative side, dinners were just not very good - the flavors never seemed to come together for us for our dinner meals (they were quite bland in all cases) and the wine list was just kind of meh. The overall dinner experience was quite disappointing; for the price I think there are numerous other offerings in the area that are better options. As others have noted, the rooms left a lot to be desired as well. They are of the poured concrete variety you see a lot in the Caribbean but they weren't done as well as many others at which we've stayed. The overall effect was dark and uncomfortable - it didn't leave a lot of opportunity for relaxing in your room if you wanted a break from the sun. And clothing storage was an issue - I think the rooms would be much improved with a bit more furniture for lounging and storage and new mattresses.

Finally, while most of the staff was quite lovely, there are definitely some who were on the other end of the spectrum and it was hard not to let that interfere with your experience. Of note, the gentleman who showed us to our room forgot to point out the switch for the hot water heater located in the closet that must be turned on to have hot water. Not a huge deal, but for the price, it would have been nice to have hot water for our showers the first day.

All in all a mixed bag for us - great location, good breakfast and lunch, but not hitting the mark in terms of service and amenities in the room and dinner experience. Unfortunately, I don't see us ever coming back - there are so many other options on the island that it's unlikely we'd give Laluna another try.

Unfortunately, the entire experience just didn't come together.

Outstanding!

We were looking for a relaxing getaway and LaLuna fit the bill perfectly. Small with a private beach. Warm water. Fantastic staff. Great restaurant with a nice selection of well prepared entrees and daily specials. Very secluded and quiet. Great ocean views. Bungalows built on a hillside. Only possible downside is the steep steps, but the hotel provided golf cats to pick you up and get you back to your cottage if requested.

Incredible!

We spent 5 nights here in October. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the experience. Some of our favorite things: 1) The warm, friendly employees 2) The gorgeous beach and ocean 3) The peacefullness 4) A beautiful coral reef just a few minutes swim out from the beach 5) Gratis watertoys - paddleboards, kayaks, sailboats, snorkeling gear 6) Happy hour at the bar while watching the stunning sunsets.

Tip: There is no way to walk to other restaurants but it is easy enough to taxi to several but another option is ordering food from Yogo. They will deliver from most of the restaurants, fast food and I believe grocery stores also.

Tip number 2: Kayak, paddleboard or sail over to La Plywood for lunch. Great burgers and fish tacos (closed Monday and Tuesday).

Tip number 3: Saturday night (maybe Friday too?) at Umbrellas was a lot of fun with a great live band and good food and drinks and reasonable prices.

Very Relaxing

This is a very nice resort. It is very laid back and quiet. We were looking for a place to relax and be lazy and this was perfect. It was also a quick trip from the airport. The water was warm and the ocean was lovely to swim in. The restaurant was very good. Several reviewers complained about the lack of selection in the menu but I found there to be enough variety. The menu had lots of fish/seafood and pasta as well as some meats. Perhaps it you are a meat-and-potato type or are staying a lot longer than a week you might find issues with the menu but it was really quite good. My husband is in search of lion fish locally after first trying it there. It was delicious. We only left the resort to go on a snorkeling trip, but the two couples who went with us (both honeymooners) said that they had been into town for dinner a few times and that they enjoyed the restaurants and felt very safe. We stayed in the Beach Cottage Deluxe which I believe was the only room on the beach level. It was nice to be able to walk right out of our room and to the beach The room was lovely and off to the side which made it even more quiet. It had a small plunge pool. The plunge pool was not large and sat in a private corner so it was shaded and cold so we did not use it.
