Grenada exudes a shy charm that makes the visitor feel at ease. Known as the Spice Island because of its production of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and vanilla, Grenada offers you an array of sights and places of interest to discover as well as a fantastic range of luxury hotels and resorts. These include Calabash, an outstanding hotel in all respects with charming service, excellent cuisine and extremely comfortable rooms in a beautiful location; and Spice Island Resort, a luxurious hotel which is full of Caribbean flavour and occupies an enviable position on Grand Anse Beach.
Grenada is a southerly Windward island, composed of rainforest-covered mountains, fertile valleys of nutmeg, cocoa, mahogany and orange immortelle trees, sheltered bays and inlets with stretches of fine yellow-white sandy beaches. As well as the typical palm-fringed beaches and secluded bays, the island also offers old plantations, waterfalls and rainforest walks, creole architecture in Gouvaye, botanical gardens and markets in St George's. Grenada is a beautiful and fascinating luxury holiday destination.

Carnival is in August. Food is excellent: specialities include lambi (conch), callaloo soup made of dasheen leaves, goat and seafood, nutmeg features on top of rum punches and in breakfast jelly. Rum and Carib beer are the local drinks. Perfumes and pot pourris made from the island`s spices as well as the spices themselves, straw, palm and wood craftware all make excellent souvenirs.
The hotels we feature are a short distance by taxi from the airport. However, a hire-car is very useful for visiting the island, getting into St George`s, exploring the coast for harbours and beaches. Cars can be booked through the hotels and delivered to your hotel. Recommended excursions include St George`s, Gouvaye, Concord Falls, Dougaldston Estate, Grand Etang forest centre, Grenville, Morne Fendue plantation house and La Sagesse Protected Seascape of beaches, mangrove, salt pond and coral reef.
