Steps away from the shore, or tucked away in the lush tropical gardens, the sprawling suites and mini-villas are home away from home. They feature airy living areas, terraces with hammocks, day beds and dining tables and spa style bathrooms. Many come with saunas and private pools and each one is stylishly furnished.
With much of the produce locally grown and from the surrounding waters, not to mention all manner of spices for which Grenada is famous, the cuisine here is varied and delicious. At Oliver’s Restaurant, you’ll dine on traditional Caribbean and Creole dishes to the sounds of calypso or reggae. Overlooking the beach, Sea and Surf Terrace and Bar has an international menu, with the emphasis on grilled seafood and meat.
Being all-inclusive, many of the activities come as part of your stay. The water sports facilities are excellent and guests have some of best waters in the region to explore. The resort has a PADI certified diving centre for those wanting to experience the extraordinary marine life below the surface and you can snorkel right from the beach. Guests can also take out kayaks, paddle boards and hobie cats. On land, there’s a tennis court, and keen golfers enjoy complimentary green fees at the nearby Grenada Golf and Country Club.
For a relaxed and gentle way to see this part of the island, the resort has bicycles to use. Grenada’s lush and rainforest covered interior is well worth a visit. There are numerous hiking trails, along which you’ll find high waterfalls dropping into clear pools – perfect for a dip.
The Nutmeg Pod kid’s club offers a supervised space for children aged three to twelve, open daily from 9am to 5pm, with a range of organized and fun activities. Babysitting is also available on request.
The resort is firmly committed to protecting the environment in which it sits, with a dedicated Environment Officer on its staff.
