There are 13 simply furnished air-conditioned cottages and suites set in beautiful lush tropical gardens. All of them have a hand carved bed, ceiling fan, shower, tea and coffee making facilities, mini fridge, Wi-Fi, private deck or terrace and a view of the sea.
The rooms are not luxurious but are certainly charming and are furnished with both hand-made local pieces and family furniture brought over from England.
Petite Anse is set on the unspoilt northern coast of Grenada, one of the best kept secrets of the Caribbean. Most of Grenada’s hotels are set in the south of the island and the north coast has a much quieter, more local feel.
The hotel sits above a wild, sandy beach which has a dramatic and rugged beauty, backed by lush jungle and rocks and looking out to the Grenadines. Please note that sometimes the waves can be rough, so often it will not be suitable for swimming and it’s not a typical sunbathing beach.
Petite Anse is a great base for exploring the north coast including Belmont Plantation, Levera National Park, fishing villages and historic rum distilleries.
Food and drink
At the heart of Petite Anse is a large lounge with French windows opening on to a terrace that offers fabulous views and this serves as the restaurant, bar and lounge. You’ll find the owner's school photos on a wall of the bar, wicker armchairs and sofas, providing a feeling of a country home in the tropics.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, all day snacks and dinner, and the food is good, honest, tasty Caribbean and European cuisine with the emphasis on fresh fish and locally grown fruit and vegetables with herbs grown in their own garden. They even make their own ice cream.
There are no age restrictions at the hotel but due to the ambience, style and setting of the hotel it is probably best suited to older children. There are two interconnecting cottages which can be used for families.
Environmental and social responsibility
Annie is known in the region for providing support to the local children’s home, Father Mallaghan's. She holds various events to raise money to fund the running of this home, which cares for boys between the ages of 7-14 who have been taken out of their own homes due to severe abuse and neglect.
Petite Anse is well located for exploring Grenada’s north and there are a variety of great places to discover. Historic Belmont Plantation dates back to the 17th century and is still producing cocoa while River Antoine Rum Distillery is the oldest water-driven distillery in the Caribbean. Remote Levera National Park has great hiking trails through its volcanic landscape.
If you’re here between April and July, we highly recommend taking a turtle nesting tour.
You’ll experience a unique blend of nature, relaxation and wonderful hospitality away from the more developed side of the island. It will feel more like you’re staying at a friend’s home, so if you really want to get under the skin of the island and immerse yourself in local life, Petite Anse is definitely for you. Please note the owners have seven dogs and numerous cats that wander around the resort so this may not be a good choice if you don't like dogs or cats.
