Set on a less-known island, the upscale resort connects guests to pristine beaches and forests, an engaging culture, and distinctive cuisine. Within this minimalist setting, visitors enjoy a variety of suite and villa accommodations, locally inspired spa rituals, and the Caribbean’s longest infinity-edge pool. Dine at two restaurants showcasing the island’s agricultural and culinary artisans, from line-caught fish to organic, grass-fed beef, complemented by Grenadian craft beers, rums, and a global wine list.”
The Telegraph calls Silversands, “A luxurious hotel where everything has been designed in a strikingly minimalist style. It backs onto Grenada’s best beach, and has an impressively long swimming pool, an elaborate spa, soothing, high-tech bedrooms, and vast, indulgent villas with private pools.”

The bedrooms are gorgeous, service is first rate, the food good, and the spa attractive.”
Afar adds, “Located on Grenada’s main beach of Grand Anse, Spice Island Beach Resort is right in the middle of it all. This can mean a little less privacy but also allows for suites with direct beach access and close proximity to the best of the island.

All meals, drinks, non-motorized watersports, tennis reservations, bicycle rentals, and golf fees are included in your stay, as is the kids’ club, which offers supervised play in a brightly colored activity center.

4. Mount Cinnamon
The Telegraph writes of Mount Cinnamon’s location, “On a steep hillside above the southern end of Grand Anse beach, one of the Caribbean’s loveliest strands – a long curve of soft, white sand, shaded by sea grapes, almond trees, and palms. The views from the property – along the beach up the coast to St George’s and over the lush, mountainous heart of Grenada – are fantastic. It’s a three-minute walk through a field below the hotel down to the property’s lovely beach club. From the outside, the whitewashed, terracotta-roofed buildings have a Mediterranean look. Within, you’re blasted with primary colors – in the open-plan, multi-arched lounge/bar/restaurant, the beach club, and in the apartments and villas. The place feels fun and upbeat, chic, and informal.”
Located near Mount Cinnamon with all hotel services, this 25,000 sq. ft. fully staffed castle includes six ensuite bedrooms, multiple living areas, a dining area seating up to 12, a private cinema, an office, and a pool.

And it does – pool-equipped Balinese cottages with a minimalist focus on the functional – big, floaty four-posters that look every bit as enticing as the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean.”
