collection on the Spice Island
Annoh is on a mission to find great places to stay in Grenada
When you arrive in Grenada, it is not immediately apparent
to the visitor what is available in terms of unique properties
until you begin to explore the Island. Yes, it has a beautiful
Port,but does it have great properties to complement its
views? I endeavoured to seek for the best in accommodation
to make my stay worthwhile. I was confident though, that
setting aside the classic hotel scene for a moment, I am
going find some unique properties suitable for people who
are looking for something special.
Just when I thought
that I had seen it all I discover Mount Hartman
Bay Estate! It suddenly became my personal favourite
of all the luxury estates.
The first stop
on my hunt for luxurious accommodation is to Grenada’s
La Source. Set in luscious
tropical gardens, La Source is only five minutes away from
the airport and sits on the Pink Gin Beach. Guests to Grenada’s
La Source automatically enjoy a complimentary limousine
transfer from the airport. Your reservation also entitles
you to four dining choices.
spa and well-being retreat La Source is situated on
the southwest tip of the island. It is ideal for beach
vacations with 100 guest rooms including suites and
luxury rooms. The hotel offers complimentary wedding
services to guests staying for a minimum of 7 nights.
The complex aims to be recognised as one of the top
spa complexes in the world with its new wellbeing centre
and spa facilities. The hotel also has its own 9-hole
golf course includes complimentary health and lifestyle
activities in your stay.
from US$1265 (7 nights) to US$3125 (14 nights)

The staff at Mount Cinnamon introduced me
to Azzurra Castle, another of Peter de Savary’s creations
set at the end of a peninsula on the Caribbean Sea. On arrival,
I was greeted with a colourful property with two private
gates, two small private beaches with a private shore and
majestic ocean views, a boat deck, sunbathing deck, barbecue
area, beach lounge and beach side Jacuzzi. Azzurra Castle
makes an ideal setting for a retreat. It has its own quaint
conference room/office, private cinema and exercise room.

unique residence has two private gated landscaped entrance

exclusivity of La Lulana makes me greedy so I set
out to discover the all white and peaceful Mi
Hacienda. The very intimate and cosy
Mi Hacienda has something special about it. Merle
McEwan has nurtured her white restaurant and boutique
hotel with so much passion and love that it is felt
in the warmth that you receive when you visit. As
you arrive at the cosy boutique hotel and restaurant,
you are greeted with a stunning view of Grand Anse
Beach and the surrounding tropical landscape. Guests

functions and you do not have to be a resident to enjoy
all of the facilities which includes a bar, a lounge area
and a swimming pool. They also organise weddings, making
all arrangements through their own wedding coordinator.

when I thought that I had seen it all I discover Mount

It suddenly became my personal favourite of all the
luxury estates. The mesmerizing Mount Hartman Bay
Estate overlooks the ocean with breath-taking views;
it is simply striking. The exclusive luxury Estate

and bathrooms available in very different properties
on the Estate. The property is captivating; it has
been cleverly built as house hidden within a hillside. |
you enter the main building, you are greeted by a
beautiful waterfall alongside a beautifully polished
wooden stairs that leads you to the main lounge –this
is where it all starts to become bewitching; the views,
the height, the pool, and the sea! There is a Cave
House which sleeps up to fourteen, a romantic folly
which sleeps two and if your party needs even more
space, there’s the Beach House, with a further
four bedrooms and bathrooms. Mount Hartman Bay Estate
does not impose its character on the visitor.
has been designed to make you feel at home and this is embraced
throughout the estate in such a way that when you arrive
at the property, you immediately feel at home. Prices start
from £3,200 to $5,000 per person per week inclusive
