Opened in 1994 and situated on the stunning Great Courlan Bay on the eastern edge of the island, Le Grand Courlan Spa Resort offers guests a fine example of all inclusive experience bundled with an exclusive spa – the most luxurious in the southern Caribbean.
Following a refurbishment in 2007 it now offers an even higher standard of accommodation. Nestled on the hillside amongst lush tropical vegetation, and steps away from the pristine beaches of Stonehaven Bay, this is an idyllic location in which to spend your holiday in the Caribbean. There is an oversized pool with a swim-up bar, a variety of sports and a fitness centre, and a great location on the island close to the airport and the historic capital of Scarborough.
As this is a spa resort, guests receive a complimentary spa treatment each per day, with a wide range of treatments and massages to choose from, as well as male-specific treatments. The surroundings mean you can unwind and relax in perfect harmony with nature, and the leeward location means the waters are calm and tranquil, perfect for an afternoon swim in the azure waters of the Caribbean.
Le Grand Courlan Spa features exquisite dining in its restaurants, with a blend of international dishes and local influences and ingredients, and the guest rooms all boast sea views, comfort and luxury in abundance. This is truly a taste of paradise.
