Set in tropical gardens with the white sands of Grand Anse Beach spread out before it, Mount Cinnamon Resort and Beach Club is a haven of laid-back luxury. Located at the Southern tip of Grenada, this boutique resort boasts uninterrupted views of the Caribbean Ocean.
The haciendas and villas feel like luxury Californian surf shacks and the bright colours and dramatic art-work are in striking contrast with the white-washed walls. From each guest suite there are stunning views out to sea and across to St George's Harbour where yachts can be seen sailing across the horizon. The villas are spacious and each has a grand four poster bed, ensuring that guests have a comfortable stay.
Savvy's open-air restaurant is light and airy for breakfast but is transformed into a romantic setting by evening, offering candle lit dinners. Traditional West Indian cuisine is served and there are always fresh ideas, as some dishes change daily. Most fruit and vegetables are home grown in de Savary's Mount Edgecombe Plantation, giving the dishes an authentic feel. A more casual option is the Beach Cabana, sitting directly on Grand Anse Beach and offering a range of BBQ food, salads and snacks.
There is no shortage of activities in Grenada and Mount Cinnamon Resort has its own spa, which draws on natural West Indian remedies for its treatments. Coupled with The Yoga Retreat, situated in Mount Cinnamon's gardens, visitors can relax whilst simultaneously improving their fitness. Scuba diving is a must, as Grenada is ranked as one of the top ten dive locations in the world. Guests can explore the pristine marine environment of Grenada with its variety of tropical fish and the world's first underwater sculpture park.
The Beach Cabana is a real highlight; the quirky and colourful decor creates a really fun and authentically Caribbean vibe, while the food and facilities (including a croquet lawn, volleyball court, yoga platform, and water sports equipment) are the epitome of luxury.
