Traded back and forth by the French and British, Grenada has long been desired for its pristine white beaches and naturally occurring aromatics including mace, cinnamon, and clove. Today, guests of Spice Island Beach Resort won't have to worry about restless natives or saber-rattling Europeans out for conquest. The mood here now is one of epic chill - which works nicely with the blazing sunshine.
32 villas are dressed in white with splashes of color here and there. All are steps from the beach, and filled with Frette linens, and Molton Brown amenities. Pool Suites boast private pools and cedar saunas should you want to sweat out the last memories of your day-to-day ritual back home.
Take to the seas via hobie-cat or kayak, or get down deep via snorkel. Don your short shorts for a little tennis, or venture out for a bike ride or rainforest tour. There's no need to worry about an agenda for the kids - just drop them off at the Nutmeg Pod and enjoy your day in the knowledge that they're being entertained, and eating healthy, delicious food.
As for your diet, well, it's up to you. Oliver's does Creole and International dishes, with an abundance of options for Vegetarians. At the Sea & Surf Terrace and Bar, seafood is very, very fresh. You could get it fresher, though … if you were good with spear and sported gills.
