Recent renovations at the the Spice Island Beach Resort will leave first-time and repeat visitors in amazement. This is one of the many objectives Sir Royston Hopkin wants for all who decide to stay at his small luxury hotel on the Grand Anse Beach.
The property recently experienced a US$2.5 million improvement to upgrade and virtually transform the entire property. Last week Wednesday, media workers and media managers in Grenada experienced a small piece of the leisure and pleasure at the property. This gave them an appreciation of why Spice Island Beach Resort is one of the finest small luxury properties in the region.
In keeping with Sir Royston’s vision to operate a unique 64 luxury suites boutique hotel that can compete with the best worldwide, this is the property’s third renovation since 2000. “When my guests depart, I want them to get an experience beyond what they expected and so whenever we are doing upgrades the comments from the guest play a very important role,” Sir Royston said.
The renovations included refurbishment work on Janissa’s Spa. The spa now features a separate hair salon, a manicure and pedicure facility, indoor couple’s massage room and sauna room complete with double outdoor showers.
“What is important to note that these are not only used by the guests. Locals are allowed to use the service at the spa,” said General Manager Brian Hardy. “We are open seven day a week and all that is required is an appointment. Walk-ins are not encouraged.”
Sir Royston said that an appreciation for the excellent service should not only be experience by guests but also by locals. “We have local rates for the spa and for the every service in the hotel, especially our restaurant,” he said.
The renovated lobby/reception area features wall definitions and trimmings, chic lightings and aesthetics accented by a fresh combination of colours. The hotel entrance was also enhanced with an upgraded porte-cochere featuring contemporary pavers.
