Spice Island Beach Resort in Grenada is bestowed prestigious Green Globe Certification
After years of hard work restoring its former grandeur and re-stablishing their green practices following the devastation left by Hurricane Ivan in 2005, the Spice Island Beach Resort has restored their Green Globe Certification status thanks to an $12 million investment project to rebuild the hotel facilities and re-install environmentally-friendly devices for the most luxurious and eco-friendly Grenada holidays.
The luxurious Spice Island Beach Resort has just achieved a significant milestone in their endeavours to become a greener, more sustainable property and offer guests an eco-friendly experience during luxury Grenada holidays.
Recognising their green efforts and their commitment to operating by the highest environmental standards, the boutique 64-suite Spice Island Beach Resort was recently bestowed with the prestigious Green Globe Re-Certification Award, the highest recognition awarded to environmentally responsible properties and organisations in the travel industry.
Having become the first hotel in Grenada to have achieved Green Globe certification back in 2004, the hotel property suffered serious damages in 2005 during the passing of the Hurricane Ivan, which cost the property their Green Globe certification. After this the resort invested massively in refreshing the property to restore its former beauty with a $12 million rebuilding and renovation project that also included the implementation of an array of green initiatives. The resort has now reaped what is sowed by having their Green Globe Certification reinstated.

Some of the resort’s newly introduced green practices include the installation of solar rooftop heaters, energy consumption reducing devices, such as energy-saving light bulbs, timers and photo-cell systems on all outdoor lights, an on-property desalinisation plant to use water from the sea and a close monitoring system on the usage of air conditioning.
The Spice Island Beach Resort is beautifully located in Grenada’s world famous Grand Anse Beach, where a long list of environmental practices are put in place daily – from non-chlorine swimming pools, to natural composting and home-grown herb gardens. These green initiatives are part of the appeal of this holiday destination with many eco-concerned travellers heading here to enjoy eco-friendly Caribbean holidays in Grenada.

Of the recently achieved Green Globe re-certification, Sir Royston Hopking KCMG, owner and chairman of the resort, proudly said, “Green Globe Certification is not only a smart business decision for any hotel since it reduces costs, it also increases environmental awareness within the traveling community which makes it extremely vital for any hospitality business. Our appeal in the Caribbean is vastly dependent on our natural resources. It is imperative that the necessary safeguards are in place so that we can preserve our rich eco-systems in order to ensure our long-term profitability.”
The award-winning resort offers discerning guests classy refinement and timeless elegance for unforgettable Grenada holidays with a touch of sophistication. It features a full service spa, a beachside gourmet restaurant, a fully supervised children’s activity centre, Omnicourt tennis courts, a boutique and more.
Being a member of the prestigious collection of Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH), the Spice Island Beach Resort is also celebrating its newly acquired status as the first Grenadine hotel property to feature in the Signature Hotels and Resorts Collection.
