Calabash

Calabash

Calabash is a luxury, boutique hotel under the Relais & Château brand. It’s situated on the white-sand Lance Aux Espines beach, on the south coast of Grenada. Tucked within the calm Prickly Bay, the hotel is just a 10-minute drive from both the international airport and Grand Anse beach.

Offering just 30 suites across five room categories, the intimate resort serves guests with an understated luxury of the highest standard. All the suites are spacious and well-equipped and boast views, and some offer private pools. There are also villas suitable for larger parties. You can choose from a wide range of activities, from yoga and lawn games to sunset cruises, rum tasting and sailing lessons. There’s an on-site dive facility and water sports like paddleboards, kayaks and Hobie cats. There is also a fully equipped fitness room, tennis courts and a spa.

Rhodes, the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, serves elegant dinners, while the more casual Beach Club is open daily for a lunch and early-evening dining or a cocktail overlooking the sea. Breakfast at Calabash is an à la carte affair — you can eat on the beach or in the privacy of your own room.
