Grenada’s charm lies in its laid-back West Indian attitude. Breathtaking beaches are wonderfully unspoiled and there are waterfalls, spice plantations and street markets where other destinations might have casinos, shopping malls and championship golf courses. The spotlight here is on lush scenic beauty and an unhurried way of life, activities that are focused upon the water and freshly-caught seafood sprinkled with the local spices that give the ‘Spice Island’ its nickname.
HOW TO GET THERE
British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate flights from Gatwick twice weekly in both the summer and winter. As they make an island stop along the way, the flying time is about 101/2 hours.
WHEN TO TRAVEL
January to May are the best months for weather as they fall within the dry season, however it boasts an average temperature of 29 degrees year round.
As low-key as Grenada itself, Calabash is hidden away amidst palmdappled lawns on the edge of tranquil Prickley Bay. Privately-owned and full of traditional charm and island warmth, it’s the kind of place where everything has already been thought of, including the need for thought itself, with space and peace to meditate.
The very name of the Spice Island Beach Resort is a reminder of the time when Grenada was the civilized world’s most treasured source of exotic spices like cinnamon, mace and clove. It’s also a guarantee of the hint of spice a stay at this boutique resort adds to the lives of every guest.
