With the addition of a recently-branded Relais & Châteaux and a new Leading Hotels of the World to open in 2018, the expansion of Grenada’s luxury accommodations seeks to attract travelers looking for comfort and indulgence.
All of the finest things in life come together when staying at one of Grenada’s luxurious accommodations. From total privacy and excellent service to gourmet dining and pure wellness, these hotels go above and beyond to ensure an unforgettable stay. As they sit on some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, the hotels provide visitors with the opportunity to lounge on powdery white sand, take a dip in the refreshing clear waters or take delightful strolls along the shore. Beyond the hotels’ boundaries is a wealth of opportunities to explore the island, from the world’s first Underwater Sculpture Park located just below the island’s crystal clear waters, the finest cocoa and spice-infused chocolate available at four chocolate factories to more than 15 refreshing waterfalls amid the lush rainforest and tempting sulfur springs with revitalizing properties. Below is a sample list of some of the unique boutique hotels offering Pure Luxury accommodations.
