Grenada seeks hotel development to become world-class destination

Grenada needs at least 3,000 hotels rooms in order to strengthen its airlift negotiations, according to the Governor General Dr Cecile La Grenada.

The Caribbean country’s government is planning to offer incentives to local and foreign investors who are interested in developing new hotels in Grenada, particularly five-star luxury hotels and resorts. Dr Cecile explains;

"This critical mass of rooms is needed to strengthen Grenada’s ability to negotiate airlift,”

“To that end, my Government is heartened by the two new hotels which are currently being designed. Work will commence on at least one of those by the end of November, as Government continues to actively pursue more hotel investments."

Seeking to make the island a “world class destination”, the country received a boost in flight services recently after American Airlines announced that it will start offering daily flights from Miami in December. The country has also seen an increase in visitors thanks to the opening of the the luxury beachfront resort, Sandals LaSource Grenada, earlier this year.

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, orange/citrus peels, wild coffee, nutmeg and organic cocoa.

The island is home to an abundance of magnificent natural attractions such as the famous Grand Anse Beach; the island’s highest peak, Mount St. Catherine; the Grand Etang Nature Reserve that boasts a stunning crater lake; Seven Sister Waterfalls; the tropical Bay Gardens; and the beautiful Underwater Sculpture Park which is a hotspot for scuba divers and snorkelers.

Tourists can delve into the nation’s history and culture by visiting the Grenada National Museum, Fort George and Fort Frederick; River Antoine Rum Distillery, the oldest rum distillery in the western hemisphere; the Dougladston Estate, the oldest spice plantation in Grenada; and Belmont Estate, a former 17th century plantation and base for the renowned Grenada Chocolate Company products.
