Spice Island Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband and I visited Spice Isle Beach Resort for the very first time in September. It was my husband's 55th birthday and we wanted it to be special. The Spice Island Beach Resort did just that - made it super special. We stayed at the Luxury Almond Suite which I would recommend to those who enjoy a quiet and tucked away experience with your own private pool. The staff at S I B R are so friendly,helpful and go out of their way to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible.Everyone at the resort somehow knew it was my husband's birthday and they made him feel very special. Sir Royston chatted with us a couple times. He is so down to earth and knows the hotel business extremely well. He keeps well informed about his staff and displays the qualities of a great leader. He knows what his guests are looking for and he provides it with quality and excellence. The food was tasty and there was a variety to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner on each day. The restaurant staff offered the best service and I congratulate Fabian for doing a fantastic job. Special thanks to Clarissa, Shannon ,Antonia and the rest of the breakfast crew who made our mornings memorable. This was truly an out of this world experience for my husband and I . We truly enjoyed every minute of our trip and experienced a top class, quality service that surpasses what we have experienced on our other trips abroad. Thank you to all the staff at S I B R for making our stay so special and my husband's birthday indeed memorable. We will be back for sure!!!
Excellent service, every day different and exclusive 5-course menue, overwhelming polite staff in all areas, direct access to world-famous and amazing Grand Anse Beach, relaxing afternoon tea, spacious suites - it's just paradise.
There isn't much I can add onto all of the other reviews already on here and I don't think anything I write would do the resort justice. On arrival we were picked up in a fabulous BMW and driven to the hotel where we were met by a number of staff. Our fabulous room was an Almond Pool Villa - huge pool and terrace and an enormous bathroom and four poster bed.The resort is relatively small with two restaurants and a bar but you have the fabulous Grand Anse beach on your doorstep and it's a safe area to wander outside. The bar had just been renovated and was gorgeous, and the food was simply sensational (and we live near a Michelin star restaurant)On our 10th anniversary I was surprised with a table on the bandstand, food of my choice and a bottle of Veuve. Special thanks to Fabian for arranging that - I cried a lot! That's on top of the champagne delivered to our room earlier in the day.During our time there we were invited to two cocktail parties with Sir Royston - one at his house which is amazing. We booked a driver on a few mornings at $25 per hour (book Selwyn or Bush or Max) and saw a lot of the island, and met many locals who are just so gentle and wonderful. We also had a daily meander to the supermarket and shopping centre down the road to marvel at the Waitrose and Tesco products on the shelves! But also to chat to people and learn more about the island. So, tips and thoughts to help you:The room (Almond Pool Villa) is amazing if you want a little privacy. We did go and look at all the others and thought the beachfront rooms were also fabulous. But all rooms are luxurious and come with full size bottles of spirits, mini bar, molten brown toiletries etcThe main pool is fab and always quietThe beach is lovely with plenty of loungers and no hawkersThe food is amazing, different every day and accommodates any diet - you just have to ask.Sir Royston and his family are there daily and fascinating to talk to. At each meal the management check all is ok - but without being intrusiveReception and front desk are brill - they will arrange anything you want. The gym is also huge and quiet, wifi is in every room and the spa looked lovely (although the exchange rates made it a bit too pricey for me)Some people have said it's quiet - it is. The age demographic is 50plus but I loved it (I'm 40). The peace is part of the attraction - if you want raucous parties then pick somewhere else as it's not for you! The bar opens til 11pm and there were some wonderful bands most evenings. Most people retired early, but we were there at a quiet period generally and yet still chatted to many guests - the cocktail parties are great for meeting others.This place is the ultimate in luxury and customer service and it came as no surprise to me that a previous manager of Palm Island in the grenadines where we holidayed for a number of years was trained at Spice under Sir Royston. The staff are amazing and I felt like a celebrity every single day. A complete and utter masterclass in elegance. We are already booking next year. I suggest you do too!!
I recently went to SIBR as a combination beach/leisure trip! I find the quality of the rooms and the services to far surpass anyplace else I have ever stayed, and I am a fairly seasoned traveler who has stayed at American Four Seasons and Ritz Carltons. While the rooms are large and stunning (most have a pool, balcony or open onto the beach) and the food is above and beyond that at other all inclusive luxury hotels, it is the unadvertised traits of this hotel that makes it TRULY EXCEPTIONAL and worthy of being only one of seven Caribbean resorts with a five-star diamond rating. What are these "unadvertised" traits that I speak of that only someone who actually stayed there would know about and make this hotel worth the $700 to $2300 per night that it costs to stay here? First of all, you are greeted like a visiting prince or princess when you arrive. You get offered one of the local drinks (but can really ask for anything that you want from the bar) upon arrival in their grand lobby. Everyone seems to know your name and will set up anything you need upon arrival. The front desk even sends someone to get you at the airport--which is a very small one only ten minutes away--and drop you back off when it's time to leave.Secondly, you are never more than a five minute walk to the ocean or pool, no matter where on the property you are staying. If you have a beachfront room, you literally can be in the water in 20 seconds! Thirdly, they have the greatest spa in the Caribbean with an insane list of spa services that include gel manicures and a hot stone massage that includes small stones put between all your toes! Fourth, the staff accommodates special needs without blinking an eye, whether you prefer a soaking tub to a jet tub or have a special diet--and everyday dishes of complimentary local fruit and hors d'oeuvres will be delivered to your room! Last but not least, the owner Sir Royston Hopkin was knighted by the Queen for his expertise in hospitality, and at age 71, he still personally oversees everything going on at his property. You will undoubtedly get to meet him and his lovely family while you are staying at the 64-room SIBR. Prior to owning the resort, he was an executive in Grenada tourism so he does everything right for his guests and is always speaking to them about how to improve things. Let me add one thing--since there are only 64 rooms and the hotel really consists of small one and two level villas as opposed to a standard hotel plan, you learn the property really fast and only have to walk out your front door to be in the thick of things. Signs are strategically placed so you always know where you are going and rooms are simply numbered 1 to 64. I prefer the layout of this hotel to any others I have stayed at--there are no waits for elevators and there is always a staff member nearby to ask if you need anything. Like "Cheers," the SIBR is the place where everybody knows your name--and you are going to love every second that you spend there. You will come back to your normally crazy life as a sane, calm person--LOL!
This was our third stay here and we weren't disappointed ! We were welcomed by the family as family and made to feel so special throughout our stay!Everything is perfect, the grape rooms on the beach are spotless and have everything including the sound of the sea! Milton brown products, abundance of towels for rooms and the beach! All of the staff are engaging and professional! The spas treatments are. top notch, the gym and tennis court excellent too! This place is a must for total relaxation and spoiling! We will be back! Thank you
