This year, 2017 is the 30th Anniversary for Spice Island Resort; Coyaba Beach; Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel and 30 years of British Airways flying to Grenada. Join me in wishing them a very Happy Anniversary and hopefully many more.
Spice Island Beach Resort, a tranquil 5 star resort sits comfortably on Grand Anse Beach, a two mile stretch of glistening white sands, warm water and gentle waves. They are also the only resort in the Caribbean which has been awarded AAA Five Diamonds as well. You will be welcomed and looked after by Sir Royston Hopkin and his family to enable you to enjoy the splendor and spice of the island.
Coyaba Beach Resort. We stayed there for two nights this year and I was really impressed.
Our room was in one of a series of small blocks only two stories high and sitting on our patio we could see Grand Anse Beach while we relaxed and planned our day. The plans usually included spending time at the beach and floating in the warm, tranquil and clear Caribbean sea.
"There are two significant memories. Firstly, the ground breaking and start of our project in October 1986, and the subsequent opening of the hotel in August 1987.
Secondly, the re-building , upgrading and re-opening of the hotel in February 2006 after the catastrophic hurricane Ivan in September 2004.
Overall, our strong family commitment and unity ensured the growth, success and sustainability of the hotel over the past thirty years.” Andre Cherman, Owner & Managing Director."I would certainly love to stay here again next year.
The Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel is a 5* resort also celebrating 30 great years and with two amazing restaurants. I have not stayed there however have eaten there twice and both occasions were an experience. The Calabash is owned and managed by the Garbutt family who bought the property in 1987 and has become a world class luxury resort. It is family run and treat its guests as friends many of whom return year after year.
You are made to feel right at home the moment you enter the resort - we were both the occasion we dined in the main restaurant and on a subsequent visit when we enjoyed lunch at the Beach club. We had such an amazing lunch at the Beach Club - the sort of meal you don't want to finish because then it will be finished!
British Airways flying a regular service to the island.
Most of the Caribbean flights leave during the morning from London Gatwick Airport.
