Sleek, stylish and sexy: Silversands Grenada with its sophisticated design, stands out on a Caribbean island that buzzes with bright colours and carnival vibes. A hotel that oozes grown-up glamour, its opening statement is a 100m long pool that extends all the way from the lobby to the sea, dotted with perfectly-manicured palm trees and curtained cabanas on each side. With a world-class spa and ultra-luxurious rooms and villas, this is the ultimate resort to see and be seen.
A DESIGNER STAY AT THE ULTRA-STYLISH SILVERSANDS GRENADA
MAKING AN ENTRANCE
The red-carpet treatment looks a little different in the Caribbean: limousine service in the form of Grenada’s only Tesla shuttles arrivals from the airport to Silversands‘ lobby, where a 100m-long pool is rolled out for guests.
The jaw-dropping welcome sets the tone for a seriously elevated level of service: check-in takes place in your suite, which could be mistaken for a designer apartment.
If the ultra-luxurious furnishings weren’t enough, a switch next to the bed provides a real fanfare moment: first, cloud-like curtains unfurl from around the bed, and then a blind rolls up to reveal a stunning sea view. If only all morning alarms could look like that.
Whether you stay in one of Silversands‘ 43 rooms and suites or splash out on a beachfront villa, you’ll fall in love with the chic design: rooms are designed in an open-plan style with clean lines and marble surfaces to enhance the light, spacious feel.
Regular rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows allowing natural light to flood in, with those situated on the first and second floors boasting views of the gently rippling sea. Beachfront villas take it up a notch, with idyllic white sands just footsteps away and both a private pool and direct access to the sea to cool off.
If the ultra-stylish interiors make you feel like you need a wardrobe upgrade before hitting the beach, the on-site boutique has your needs covered: think floaty silk beach dresses and tortoiseshell sunglasses for women, and linen shirts and espadrilles for men. Even the complimentary beach bags provided for guests could be mistaken for designer holdalls.
SPA SENT FROM HEAVEN
If the hotel’s main 100m pool wasn’t enough, the spa is a perfectly serene outpost which looks every bit as heavenly as its treatments will make you feel.
Therapies include a hot quartz sand experience designed to cocoon the body to maximise relaxation and pain relief, as well as deep tissue massage using local nutmeg oil known for its muscle relaxant qualities. A hair salon and nail bar will get you glammed up for dinner at one of Silversands‘ restaurants, where tables are graced by Grenada’s gilded elite.
POOLSIDE PICNICS AT SILVERSANDS GRENADA
On an island where typical meals consist of rum punch, salt fish and fried plantain, Silversands‘ gourmet offering is in a class of its own. At Grenadian Grill fresh-caught fish and seafood are prepared in a Josper oven and served alongside exquisite cocktails, whilst Asiatique serves up sophisticated dishes that fuse Asian cooking methods with Grenadian spices and local ingredients.
Morning tropical fruit plates taste all the sweeter knowing that the hotel sources most of its fruits and vegetables through GRENROP (Grenada Network of Rural Women Producers), providing a direct and meaningful benefit to women growers on the island.
With famous Grand Anse Beach on your doorstep as well as the Caribbean’s longest pool, luxury rooms, a world-class spa, and upscale local cuisine, Silversands Grenada deserves a place on your bucket list. Rates start from $800 based on two sharing a room on a B&B basis. Book at www.silversandsgrenada.com.
