Situated right next to one of the best beaches on the island, the Calabash Hotel is a statement in luxury and a great place to stay for the more adventurous guest. 30 luxurious and stylish suites are arranged in the signature horseshoe shape and offer its occupants a real home away from home feel, all set in verdant tropical foliage showcasing the beautiful natural environment.
An underwater paradise awaits those venturing into the waters, and the waters around the resort are a haven for divers. Coral reefs, old shipwrecks and even an underwater sculpture park (a world first) adorn the seabed. The hotel has teamed up with local company Scubatech to offer great diving packages.
If you want to keep your feet dry instead there are a wealth of treasures in the rainforests, including waterfalls and hot springs gushing out of ancient volcanic craters. Grenada is an island of contrast, and when you have finished exploring the untamed beauty of the north you can retreat to the civilised lively south and sample a hub of bars, restaurants and buzzing nightclubs.
Calabash Grenada is home to one of the finest restaurants on the island, with Gary Rhodes setting up shop and creating the hotel’s signature restaurant. There is also a great spa on-site to soothe the mind and body – the Heaven and Earth features a wealth of treatments and showcases holistic methods and therapies, all while you relax and listen to the soft soothing sound of the waves in the background.
The 30 suites in the resort are set out in a horseshoe and have views out over the gardens and the Caribbean Sea beyond. They feature bedroom, lounge area and terrace/balcony. The list of facilities is generous and includes: air conditioning, fans, mini-bar, hair dryer, safe, showers and bathrobes, telephone, flat screen TV with DVD player, WiFi, ipod docks, clock radio, ironing facilities and tea/coffee maker.
