Media workers get tour of upgraded Spice Island Beach Resort

By Linda Straker

Repeat visitors will be extremely pleased and amazed at the improvements, while first-time guests should be satisfied beyond expectation. This is just 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 Spice Island Beach Resort.

The resort recently underwent a US$2.5 million improvement which virtually transformed the property, and last week a number of media workers in Grenada had the opportunity to take a tour. They got to see first-hand why the Spice Island Beach Resort will remain as one of the finest small luxury properties in the region.

In keeping with Sir Royston’s vision to operate a unique boutique hotel that can compete with the best worldwide, this recent renovation is the third one since 2000 on the 64 luxury suites.

“When my guests depart I don’t want them to say that their expectation was met; 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 explained.

The renovations included refurbishment work on Janissa’s Spa, which now features a separate hair salon, a brand new manicure and pedicure facility, a new indoor couple’s massage room and sauna room complete with double outdoor showers.

“What is important to note is that these [facilities] are not only used by the guests, but locals as well,” pointed out General Manager Brian Hardy. “We are open seven days a week and all that is required is an appointment…” he added.

Sir Royston noted that excellent service should not only be experienced by guests, but also by Grenadians.

“We have local rates not just for the Spa, but for every service in the hotel, especially our restaurant,” he said.

Work was also done on the lobby/reception area, which features new trimmings, chic lighting and aesthetics, while the hotel’s entrance was also enhanced with an upgraded porte-cochere (passageway) featuring contemporary pavers.
