The beauty of Grenada holidays showcased in UK diplomatic magazine

Featuring the best of Grenada holidays and presenting the island's main attractions as well as other areas of potential investments the latest edition of Diplomat magazine gave special attention to this Caribbean destination.

The full-coloured glossy 63-year-old monthly magazine, which provides a unique insight into the minds of the most prominent world leaders and governments, gave a total of 22 pages of space filled with information about Grenada holidays, including interviews, photographs and advertisements.

Through an initiative of High Commissioner Ruth Rouse, the editor of the Diplomat Venetia de Blocq van Kuffeler was invited to Grenada by Tourism Minister Glynis Roberts. In her foreword for the special feature on Grenada the editor said: “I have been privileged to visit many spectacular places around the world, but none have I found as unspoilt, charming and bursting with natural beauty as Grenada”.

This ‘Spice Isle’ boasts dramatic scenery, tropical rainforests, waterfalls and golden beaches that will appeal to visitors from all over the world. The country’s relatively new tourism industry is packed with potential, not only on account of the beaches – there’s plenty of heritage, sport, nature and local culture to discover as well,” she wrote.

The “Grenada Report” in the Diplomat included an introduction of the island by High Commissioner Rouse and investor Peter de Savary recalling his first to the island more than 50 years ago and recognising “an untapped opportunity for the development of the hospitality industry on the island”.

The editor also spoke to Prime Minister Tillman Thomas, who shared his plans and priorities for the development of Grenada, Foreign Affairs Minister Peter David, Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister Glynis Roberts and Finance Minister Nazim Burke among government officials.

The Tourism Minister said that if the right conditions are created, the tourism sector could become the number one creator of employment and wealth for Grenada. “Our strategy is a work in progress. We aren’t working on mass tourism, but on quality and creating experiences that will make people want to return to the island”.

The magazine also profiled the St George’s University and the Grenada Chocolate Company among industries and institutions, and a guide to hotels and restaurants on the island. A two-page advertisement from the Grenada Co-operative Bank Ltd and other spots from the Grenada Electricity Services (GRENLEC); Mount Cinnamon Resort Hotel; and SGU supplemented the feature on Grenada in the Diplomat.

Co-op Bank, Grenada’s fastest growing bank, recognises the need to expand its customer focus geographically. The Bank has therefore committed itself to understanding the needs of existing and potential customers in the Diaspora,” the bank stated in the magazine.
