Enjoy a luxury villa holiday to the delightful 'Isle of Spice', Grenada, and look forward to privacy, peace and quiet and the slow pace of life favoured by the inhabitants of this very special island in the eastern Caribbean. Perfect for a family holiday or break away with a group of friends, Grenada is growing in popularity as one of the premier scuba-diving locations in the Caribbean, with a number of wreck-diving sites, coral gardens and the world's first underwater sculpture park to delve into. Alternatively, visitors can explore the island by mountain-bike or hire car, heading inland to seek out the rainforests, sulphur springs and volcanic crater lakes, or making their way along the beautiful coastline in search of pristine, off-the-beaten-track beaches, including the famous swathe of powder-soft sand known as Grand Anse Beach, and the island's capital, St. George's, with its jumble of pastel-coloured Georgian buildings, shops dotted along the hillside next to the harbour and lively market square.
Unsurprisingly, for the world's largest producer of nutmeg, there are spice farms to seek out and visitors can even visit Grenada Chocolate Factory, where organic cocoa is grown and ethically produced dark chocolate is produced. Our collection of five luxury villas is located directly to the west of the excellent Calabash hotel, on the south coast of the island, each one located on a quiet peninsula within the Amber Belair gated community, just a two-minute drive or ten-minute walk away from the hotel. Villa guests are more than welcome to utilise the facilities of Calabash, including its flood-lit tennis courts, snooker room and spa, and enjoy a range of complimentary, non-motorised watersports, including kayaking, snorkelling and Hobie Cat sailing, while the hotel's award-winning cuisine is certainly worth experiencing while here, with its two superb restaurants offering menus of cuisine overseen by the English chefs, Gary Rhodes and Mark Banthorpe. However, for those guests who prefer to do their own cooking or eat out beyond the resort, especially when the hotel is closed, the pretty and historic capital, St George's, is just a ten-minute drive away and offers a number of cafes, restaurants and bars, along with supermarkets and shops in which to pick up provisions that can be prepared by guests in the kitchen of each private villa.
