Travel Dream - Winter 2017/18

15 Having been voted the top Caribbean Hotel for 2017 TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards it should come as no surprise that Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel should complete the year by obtaining the much regarded Relais & Châteaux membership, a rare honour in the Caribbean! This “easy-vibe”, family-owned retreat is located adjacent to one of Grenada's best beaches, L'Anse Aux Épines and comprises just 30 exclusively-designed suites, arranged in a horseshoe shape amid 8 acres of tropical gardens with a distinctive home-from-home feel. There are also five estate homes that offer more substantial accommodation to suit groups and families. Facilities include a full-service spa, yoga, snorkeling, sailing, tennis, a kids concierge and a variety of watersports. This is a place to enjoy good living from the moment you wake up. The unique choice of having breakfast on your private balcony or patio, or on the beach, assures you that you are in for a special treat. Lunch is also a delight at The Beach Club where guests can choose from freshly caught fish dishes or a range of delicious tapas. In the evening, dinner at Gary Rhodes’ on-site restaurant includes mouth-watering dishes complemented by an al fresco atmosphere enriched by the tinkling of the ivories at the Piano Bar. If you do feel the inclination to stray out of the hotel, the island of Grenada is a treasure trove of colourful bars and restaurants. Calabash Easy living on the Spice Island of Grenada
