Great places to stay in Grenada

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In case you don't want to wait for Grenada to become a tourism hot spot, there are several great places you can stay at right now.

I stayed at Spice Island Beach Resort right on the beautiful Grand Anse Beach. It's a four-diamond property with spacious rooms just steps away from the beach. My only complaint is that the rooms lacked a little Grenada character. They were beautiful, but they could've been anywhere.

The rooms at Spice Island don't come cheap, especially if you're on the all-inclusive plan. But the food is terrific, so if you have deep pockets, go for it. Spicebeachresort.com.

An even more remote getaway that's perfect for honeymooning couples is La Luna. It's owned by a former fashion consultant to Armani and Prada, and it shows. Set on a beautiful bay, each cottage has a private veranda and a plunge pool. Bathrooms are partially open to the sky. The restaurant serves Italian food with some Caribbean flavors mixed in. Overall: sexy and fun. And very discreet. laluna.com.

The always popular Aquarium restaurant has seven cute villas with fully equipped kitchens and private hot tubs. Makes it convenient to get home after having 12 creamy pina coladas at the Aquarium. Macabana.com.
