A Wonderful, Quiet, Retreat
Posted Oct 5, 2014
We stayed for a full week in this quiet cottages retreat south of St. Georges in Grenada on the West coast. It was wonderfully quiet, and the staff was eager to be helpful, without being intrusive. The cottage we stayed-in was essentially a large bedroom with an attached outdoor-exposure bathroom, and a large covered porch. The AC for the bedroom was very good, the closet space was large, and the double-double glass doors to the bedroom allowed for a magnificent view of the sea to the West. The outdoor bathroom was large, covered and screened, and led to a separate toilet and an uncovered soaking tub.
We happened to stay in a cottage that was up the cliff-side, which required a bit of climbing up a stairway, but the view, and privacy, was worth the climb. A very nice bar/pool/open-air lounge area was located at the foot of the cliff and behind an almost exclusive, good-sized beach. The water was very clear and warm, and there was an extensive reef system a few tens of yards offshore that sheltered the beach and provided for some very good snorkeling from the beach. The restaurant was very good and, surprisingly, was an Italian cuisine themed dining place. Also on the grounds was an good spa at which my wife enjoyed a pedicure, and I enjoyed a massage. There is also a Yoga theatre with daily classes, and an enclosed exercise center with a good set of workout equipment.
The hotel also helped us obtain good taxi service for our tours around the island.
