Named after the nickname of Grenada, the Spice Isle, the property remains one of the most respected brands on the island to this day, and is often host to important figures and celebrities. The hotel describes itself as “a place of unpretentious luxury” and it actually delivers upon that claim with its immaculately kept grounds, beautiful rooms, and effortlessly chic decor.
The award-winning Spice Island Beach Resort features 64 elegantly-appointed suites, the full-service Janissa’s Spa, a Cybex® fitness center, Oliver’s beachside gourmet restaurant, the Sea & Surf Terrace for light lunches, the Sea & Surf Bar for refreshing cocktails throughout the day, a central swimming pool with swim-up whirlpool, an Omnicourt® tennis court, the Nutmeg Podchildren’s activity center, the Gatsby Boutique and more. Spice Island Beach Resort is a proud recipient of the 2014 Six Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences and was ranked the # 1 property in the Caribbean by TripAdvisor according to traveler reviews in 2013. The resort has also received Virgin Holidays' Gold Award as the #1 property in its exclusive worldwide Platinum Collection for nine consecutive years from 2006-2014. Spice Island Beach Resort has been recognized with the Condé Nast Johansens 2011 & 2013 Most Excellent Service Award & the 2012 Most Excellent Resort for the Atlantic, Caribbean & Pacific Islands. Spice Island Beach Resort is a proud member of the esteemed Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) collection and the first and only resort in Grenada to be featured in the exclusive Virtuoso network's Hotels & Resorts Program and Signature Hotels & Resorts Collection.
Spice Island's property boasts a quarter-mile of beachfront on the famous two-mile long Grand Anse beach. Grand Anse is the most popular beach on the island, so its far from an isolated getaway here. There is a good amount of foot traffic on the sand, from both local vendors selling wares and guests from other nearby resorts. (The beachfront suites do provide a private lounging area.) If a quiet, private-island-like beach is a top priority, guests may want to check out the nearby and more affordable Laluna Hotel. Grand Anse is immaculate, though, with calm, clear blue waters and plenty of room to go around. Spice Island provides comfortable, padded lounge chairs and beach umbrellas for guests.
