An extremely well-run hotel, Calabash offers a wide range of facilities, an exceptional kitchen and friendly service, all in a beautiful beachside location on L'Anse aux Epines (Prickly Bay) in about eight acres of gardens. Calabash's accommodation consists of 30 newly decorated suites in mainly two-storey houses, forming a semicircle facing the beach across a lawn dotted with palm trees and shrubs. The sandy beach at the Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel and Spa is set in a natural bay which offers good bathing and water sports. On the beach, trees provide natural shade and The Beach Bar is close at hand with a range of cooling drinks and very tempting light lunches - The Calabash club sandwich with chicken, pineapple and nutmeg is highly recommended! The swimming pool, a short distance from the beach, is a good size and is surrounded by crisp white tiles that mirror the resorts buildings. Bougainvillaes provides dramatic bursts of colour. Dinner is served under trailing Thunbergia vine in Calabash's hotel restaurant, which is under the full direction of Gary Rhodes. Local ingredients such as barracuda, dorado, kingfish, guava, nutmeg and dasheen are combined to provide dishes of the highest quality and imagination. The new beachside Bash Restaurant serves lunch as well as 'tapas bites' throughout the day. The Spa at Calabash is built on a ledge right beside the beach with three treatment rooms and a yoga pavilion. Natural products from Grenada are used in the treatments and a range of massage therapies, aromatherapy, reflexology and beauty treatments are offered. Your hotel suite at Calabash is spacious and very comfortable, having been thoughtfully redesigned and decorated with new furnishings and fabrics last year. Each room has a balcony or patio where your maid serves you A la Carte breakfast each morning, or it is possible  to have a breakfast on the beach on a private table. The hotel's leisure features include a choice of watersports, tennis and a PADI dive centre. Grenada's Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel and Spa is one of our favourite Caribbean hotels.

About Grenada

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Grenada is a chance to indulge in a restorative, welcoming and luxury haven. Grenada exudes a shy charm that makes the visitor feel at ease. Known as the Spice Island because of its production of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and vanilla, Grenada offers you an array of sights and places of interest to discover as well as a fantastic range of luxury hotels and resorts. These include Calabash, an outstanding hotel in all respects with charming service, excellent cuisine and extremely comfortable rooms in a beautiful location; and Spice Island Resort, a luxurious hotel which is full of Caribbean flavour and occupies an enviable position on Grand Anse Beach. Grenada is a southerly Windward island, composed of rainforest-covered mountains, fertile valleys of nutmeg, cocoa, mahogany and orange immortelle trees, sheltered bays and inlets with stretches of fine yellow-white sandy beaches. As well as the typical palm-fringed beaches and secluded bays, the island also offers old plantations, waterfalls and rainforest walks, creole architecture in Gouvaye, botanical gardens and markets in St George's. Grenada is a beautiful and fascinating luxury holiday destination.

Highlights of Grenada

The carnival is in August. Food is excellent: specialities include lambi (conch), callaloo soup made of dasheen leaves, goat and seafood, nutmeg features on top of rum punches and in breakfast jelly. Rum and Carib beer are the local drinks. Perfumes and pot pourris made from the island`s spices as well as the spices themselves, straw, palm and wood craft ware all make excellent souvenirs. Recommended excursions include St George`s, Gouvaye, Concord Falls, Dougaldston Estate, Grand Etang forest centre, Grenville, Morne Fendue plantation house and La Sagesse Protected Seascape of beaches, mangrove, salt pond and coral reef.
