Grenada's swankiest resort features the Caribbean’s longest pool and prime seafront access to Grand Anse Beach
This Spice Island stunner is not your typical tropical all-inclusive. For one, it’s remarkably easy on the eyes—a grown-up blend of neutral hues and natural materials like gray granite and South American bullet wood that put a contemporary spin on Caribbean comfort. Then there’s the property’s next-gen gadget spread: rooms come with Smart TVs, iPod docks, and serious soundproofing. You’ll also find two restaurants: Asiatique serves up Thai classics spiked with Grenadian spices, while a more laid-back grill option (where an in-house DJ makes regular appearances in the PM hours) features just-caught seafood and Black Angus cuts given the Jasper oven treatment. No single spot captures the ethos of this sophisticated seaside retreat, however, better than Puro, the swanky cigar and rum bar that specializes in small-batch versions of the iconic sugarcane spirit. The views of the infinity pool and Grand Anse Bay don’t hurt, either.
In the Area
Despite its rugged surroundings, Silversands is actually just a short distance from the Grand Anse Shopping Center and Fort George, known for sweeping views. The island is best known for its breathtaking natural attractions like magical scuba dives and organic farms and plantations (nutmeg and cocoa are especially prevalent here)—ask the attentive resort staff for planning assistance, and they’ll gladly oblige. JS Tip: Book an all-day taxi rental with a trusted local driver familiar with the area’s hills and twisty turns. For some otherworldly R&R, take advantage of what is arguably the three-island nation’s most prized beach. Lucky for you, Grand Anse, that silky two-mile strand, is your unofficial backyard.
How to Get There
My wife and I work in Grenada for the last 7 years. We wanted to stop in and see the place and have a drink. The place was empty and we were welcomed at the door. We both order the same drink and realized that it contained Jalapeno and was not mentioned on the drink ingredients. We contacted the waiter and figured out that the wrong drink was delieved and the waiter disputed what was ordered. He finally agreed to bring the drinks we ordered and then charged us for all (4) drinks. We were done. We paid the bill and left the establishment. We were both 100% confident on what we ordered but in any event even if he thought we were wrong they should have replaced the drinks without an argument.
My mother and I were spending a couple of days which was an excellent break from winter. We stayed in an ocean front suit on the third floor and the views and sound from the Great Atlantic Ocean were splendid! We loved having a roomy balcony in which to wind down after a long day. The room was ample size, the bed super comfy with luxe linens, the bathroom had nice fixtures, and plush towels and bathroom robes. We had breakfast at the Asiatique restaurant and their menu had a great selection and the prices were very, very reasonable. Of course, we just didn’t stop there. The next best part was the fantastic food and excellent service at the Grill Restaurant. The menu also had a great variety of food choices. Our server was Cecile and she made our dining experience a beautiful one. We then decided to try the 24 hours room service. Naome was very attentive, professional and friendly while taking our order and we thoroughly enjoyed the daily soups and the charcuterie board. Quality was very much appreciated. She had also delivered ice to our room several times knocking “room service” which was Warm and polite. It was nice to get an opportunity to simply have a real vacation with my mother, and I am looking so forward to going back, it is the perfect half way stop on our way to the Bahamas from New York or for a week getaway. A wonderful mini-vacation!
You know that feeling, when you have been waiting, anxiously waiting for something and hoping that it lives up to your expectations. That was the case with Silversands Grenada. I remember the first time I read about Silversands, a brand new hotel opening in Grenada that was going to change everything. I quite literally visited the website every few months, anxiously waiting for an opening date. This was bookmarked, saved, wishlisted and everything in between.
So when it opened and reservations were made, I was so excited, counting down the days until my stay. And when we got to the airport, I started wondering if I had set my expectations too high. Just in case you’re thinking of making the trip, here’s exactly how it played out.
The thing that gets you when you pull up to the hotel is the stunning and impressive pool that stretches all the way to the ocean. The illusion is breathtaking, it feels like one continuous stretch of blue water, making it hard to tell where the pool stops and the ocean begins. The pool is actually a record breaker, the longest pool in the Caribbean, 2X the length of an Olympic pool. The reception area highlighted another key feature of the hotel, a general openness – light woods, cut out wood panels, so you can see a lot of everything no matter where you stand or sit.
From reception, I was already plotting: drinks by the beach chair, breakfast at the restaurant patio, sunset views at any one of the seating areas and so much more.
There are quite a few room options -most if not all with Ocean views. Our room was on the second floor, which meant a balcony staring directly out into the Ocean. Since most of the property is covered with lush greens- every view brings the best combination of blues and greens. Other highlights in the room included the well-appointed bathroom, with a tub that didn’t get nearly as much love as I thought it would. I also really loved the amount of technology built into the rooms- it made for such convenience, I also love forward thinking hotels. The ones that think of things that make your stay that much more enjoyable, little things you wouldnt have even considered. The hotel even has an app that we used to set everything from lighting, temperature, window shades, bed curtains etc. I want all of this in my own home someday… someday.
There are 2 restaurants on the property serving Caribbean dishes as well as Asian inspired dishes. I enjoyed every single meal at each restaurant. Breakfast was a full spread, with just about everything you would want. Some of the sweetest fruit too, although that might just be an island thing. Food highlights for me included the seafood and shrimp dishes at Asiatique and the grilled meats at Grenadian Grill.
What I really loved about the service at Silversands, what that it didn’t feel like service- I hope you understand what I mean by that. It never felt put on, it felt so balanced, just the right amount, just the right touch. It felt warm without being invasive, professional without being distant, familial without being overly casual. I also had some of the best chats with the staff and if time permitted, I would have loved to continue the conversations.
We have visited Grenada many times and were excited to stay at this brand new luxury hotel. In most respects, it did not disappoint. The actual facility is stunning. The outdoor pool which leads to the beach is as beautiful and comparable to any resort in the world. The beach itself is also glorious . It is vast, the sand is soft and the water is blue. The entire layout of the Silversands and the actual rooms match the natural beauty of the premises. Our room was spacious, faced the water and most importantly technologically advanced. A simple app on my iPhone was able to control most of the features of the room and it worked perfectly. There was also a gourgous spa which my wife spoke of in glowing terms. The service in the hotel was also five stars. The entire staff was friendly and were trained well to make sure all our needs and desires were fulfilled promptly. Our only complaint, which detracted from our vacation, was the two restaurants in the hotel. They were just mediocre and the service was much too slow. The contrast between the excellence of all other aspects versus the struggles at the hotel’s dining facilities was just too striking to ignore . I should point out that the hotel’s management seems eager to create a perfect vacation experience at the Silversands. I have every confidence that they will succeed and that their growing pains will subside. Once that happens this will be one of of a handful of special hotels in the Caribbean. Right now the Silversands is already very good but still a work in progress on the culinary side.
I would NEVER spend this amount of money to stay at this hotel, let alone spend money to eat at the restaurants here, especially Asiatique. I’ve never been more disappointed with a single place in my life. Yea, it’s beautiful, however that does not equal competency. The food is bland and overpriced, they are a hotel that won’t give “to go” containers because it is against their policy. I’m sorry but if I am staying at a hotel and spending this type of money I expect to be able to do basically what I would like, especially something as simple as taking my food to go. I hope this place pulls themselves together and also learns how to treat their staff appropriately. It’s disgusting to see and there are MUCH better hotels on the island of Grenada I would rather stay in.
