This 225-room luxury all-inclusive, couples-only resort is one of the newest additions to the Sandals brand. It’s spread over a sprawling 17-acre property on the southwestern tip of the island, but all the main property features are centrally located, so it’s not difficult to find your way around. With five pools, a lovely spa and fitness center, numerous activities, and 10 restaurants, couples won’t be at a loss for things to do. It’s the romantic touches such as fire pits, gazebos, and swinging chairs on a pier looking out over the water that make the property distinctly Sandals.
This luxury all-inclusive resort is one of the most elegant and well-regarded hotels on the island, with 64 posh suites dotting a quarter mile of beachfront. Spice Island is a serene oasis amidst the bustling Grand Anse beach area, with clean lines, and a polished, upscale vibe that still maintains the laid-back charm of the Caribbean. The resort includes two restaurants, a beautiful spa, and a variety of activities, but peace and relaxation are also easy to find. The nice pool area is quiet and private, yet the beach -- though beautiful and clean -- is shared by locals and guests of nearby resorts.
This 30-room luxury boutique hotel is located in an isolated cove with a quiet, tranquil white-sand beach. The light, airy suites feature contemporary decor and stylish bathrooms, and some offer private plunge pools. This family-operated property offers some personal touches, such as private breakfast served on your room’s deck. Two well-regarded restaurants, a pool, fitness center and spa with sweeping views are available, though most guests are content to relax on the palm-tree-shaded sand.
This seven-room, upscale boutique resort features one- and two-bedroom self-catering villas in a lush, jungle-like setting. The artfully rustic villas feature natural wood finishes, beautiful, well-stocked kitchens, and -- most importantly -- picturesque decks with private hot tubs and great views. Down a steep hill, there is a spacious beachfront restaurant and bar, as well as a quiet, tranquil beach.
The Radisson is a modern, upscale 229-room chain hotel with a quarter-mile of beachfront on the bustling Grand Anse. Renovations provided updated furnishing and a sleek, clean feel, though as with some corporate brands, the look tends to be a bit generic – there’s not much by way of Caribbean flavor. Even if there isn’t much local "spice" within the fences (Grenada is the Spice Isle, get it?), guests are a short walk along the sand from local food and crafts. But with lovely amenities such as the excellent oasis pool, the Radisson offers a great value for an upscale property directly on the beach.
Mount Cinnamon, an upscale boutique hotel tucked away on a hillside perched over Grand Anse beach, features spacious villas and suites with colorful, contemporary decor. The self-catering rooms offer full kitchens and great views, but guests should be ready for a steep walk down to the beach. The resort's excellent beach cabana area is its stand-out feature, providing a relaxed oasis with comfortable loungers and daybeds, a bar and cafe, and games in a lovely garden.
The unique, artistic design of this 11-room boutique hotel helps it stand out against the upscale competition. The main building looks like something between between a spaceship and a Hobbit mansion, and is meant to blend into the natural landscape. Other highlights include the picturesque infinity pool and elegant, spacious rooms. However, for true beach bums, the man-made beachfront area may be a drawback.
A bumpy back road leads to this eclectic, posh but laid-back boutique resort tucked away on a steep, leafy hillside on a peaceful, secluded beach. Laluna Hotel’s blend of Indonesian (teak daybeds, Balinese spa), Italian (pastas and wine), and breezy Caribbean elements mingle into a unique, effortless cool. The daily yoga classes, simple cottages, and organic garden help make this 16-room upscale resort the epitome of bohemian-chic.
