Calabash Grenada to temporarily close for multi-million dollar renovations

The Calabash Grenada has announced that it will be temporarily closing its doors in August to carry out a multi-million dollar renovation project.

The luxurious Grenada resort will undergo refurbishments and upgrades to its accommodation and facilities while enhancing its water and energy conservation after it was recently certified as a Green Globe member.

The luxury resort's energy efficient air conditioning units will be fitted throughout, and its freezer system and water treatment facilities will be upgraded to recycle water in the gardens. Adele Garbutt, the Director of the resort that her family owns and runs, explained:

"Sustainability has always been a major priority for Calabash. Visitors come to Grenada because of its pure and beautiful surroundings, so it is our duty to constantly find ways to reduce our impact on the environment and to preserve our island's natural beauty. Green Globe has provided us with the framework and support to develop our operation in a sustainable way, so we are hugely honoured to be certified and look forward to growing with Green Globe."

She also added:

"We strongly believe in the importance of upgrading the resort during our closure periods each year. Over the past 20 years we have invested an average of $1M per year, however this year we are undertaking our largest and most exciting project."

The property will close on 2nd August, 2014 until 4th October, 2014 to carry out renovations, including upgrading its One Bedroom Pool Suites that feature private pools and sun decks.

Grenada is famously known as the "Island of Spice", due to its position as a leading producer of spices such as Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, allspice, orange/citrus peels, wild coffee, nutmeg and organic cocoa.

During their stay on the Caribbean island, holidaymakers can explore the island's fascinating and historic attractions including the Grenada National Museum, Fort George and Fort Frederick, West Indies Cricket Heritage Centre, River Antoine Rum Distillery, the oldest rum distillery in the western hemisphere, and the Dougladston Estate, the oldest spice plantation on the island.
