Known as the ‘Spice Isle’, Grenada is an outdoor haven, in the south eastern Caribbean Sea, the southernmost of the Lesser Antilles. Pungent aromas fill the air and its flora is world renowned, having won Gold at the Great Pavilion awards at the Chelsea Flower Show for the 14th time in 2018. 2019 will see the 50th Annual Spice Island Billfish Tournament – a premier four-day competitive fishing and sportsmanship event – held in January on the island. The Island will also celebrate its 45 years of independence from the UK. The Grand Anse beach already has one of the smartest places to stay on Grenada. Just opened and joining the Spice Island resort on the silky white-sand beach is Silversands, a luxury new 43-suite, penthouse, and nine villa boutique property. The first major hotel project on the island in over a quarter of a century, Silversands will try to seduce travellers who usually opt to spend time on St Barts or Barbados. The resort has been brought to life by Paris-based, award-winning architects AW2. The aesthetic created is pared-back, based on a white palette and pale wood, highlighting the play of light and shade in the spaces, including in the spa, beach club (with resident DJ), and rum and cigar bar.
