For a Staycation and all theses SPECIALS AND DISCOUNTS at Laluna

This Caribbean island is what many people might think of when someone says paradise. The Spice Island boasts everything you could want from a vacation, including centuries of history, amazing outdoor adventures, and seafood to die for. The only problem is fitting everything on to your Grenada itinerary.

Well, try not to worry. In this post, we’ll take a look at five of the best things to do in Grenada that will make your trip truly special. We’ll also help you with finding places to stay, whether it’s a vacation rental in Grenada, The Caribbean, or a romantic resort. So, let’s check out the Spice Island!

Experience a true paradise beach

With more than 45 beaches, Grenada definitely won’t disappoint sunseekers. Each has its own distinct character and there are plenty of opportunities to relax, have an adventure, or go snorkeling.

One of the most popular beaches in Grenada is Grand Anse on the southwest tip of the island. It’s everything you could expect and hope from a Caribbean beach – think powdery golden sands, turquoise waters, all against the backdrop of lush green hills and palm trees. You won’t have to go far for a tasty cocktail, with plenty of hotels and bars serving Pina Coladas and Mojitos in the shade. It’s popular with locals and tourists alike, but it only really gets crowded when there is a cruise ship in port.

 

Just around the corner from Grand Anse, you’ve also got Morne Rouge Beach (known by the locals as BBC) which is not packed full of bars, resorts, and cafes. But a great spot for a lazy day. For those who are trying to get off the beaten track, perhaps search Levera Beach or Petit Bacolet. Roger’s Barefoot Beach Bar on Hog Island is also well worth a visit!

 

Go hiking in Grand Etang National Park

While the fringes of the island are dusted with dream beaches, the centre of Grenada is covered in tropical rainforest. In fact, 17% of the island has been declared a national park. A favourite among visitors is Grand Etang National Park, where there is a network of hiking trails that will take you around Grand Etang Lake and up to the lookout of the summit on Mount Qua Qua. It may not be the tallest mountain on Grenada (that’s Mount St. Catherine) but it’s certainly one of the most accessible.

As you hike through the primeval green forests and volcanic valleys, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for hummingbirds moving from flower to flower. These beautiful birds make for great photos if you can get a shot quick enough. But more famous in the mountains of Grenada, are the Mona Monkeys. Some are used to humans that they feel free to eat a banana right out of your hand or hang out on your shoulder.

 

Grand Etang is not the only national park in Grenada. If you’re interested in birdwatching, you might want to check out Levera National Park in the north. This untouched part of Grenada is where many species of bird call home, including waterfowl, herons, and snipes. Lake Antoine National Landmark also offer birdwatching around a crater lake.

 

Immerse yourself in Colonial History

Source: https://pixabay.com/photos/grenada-st-georges-caribbean-4649968/

Grenada has always been desirable due to its spices, and has been colonized by the Spanish, the French, and the English. This means that there’s a lot of colonial history to learn about and there’s no better place to start than the island capital, Saint George’s. Built around a bay, this gorgeous town is full of wooden and stone homes and remains of Gothic churches.

There are numerous fortresses around the island too, including St George’s (you can probably guess where that one is) and Fort Frederick. Fort Frederick is on the slopes behind the island capital, and it attached to Fort Matthew. To learn more about the buildings’ fascinating histories, you can do a guided tour… but you might be a little distracted by the jaw-dropping views of the coast!

 

Scuba Dive to an underwater sculpture park

Source: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Underwater_sculptures_at_Molinere_Underwater_Sculpture_Park.jpg By Boris KasimovCC BY 2.0

Now, let’s check out not only one of the most unique attractions in Grenada, but the entire world. Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park is the first of its kind in the world, and it’s a popular site for both snorkelling and scuba diving. These artificial reefs are about much more than just being something for tourists to feast their eyes on though – they attract marine life who make their homes among the eerie statues.

There are nine sculptures in the underwater park including Vicissitudes, which is made up of life-sized statues cast from local children, the Lost Correspondent which documents the relationship between Grenada and Cuba, and Man on a Bike – which is a life-sized sculpture of a man on a salvaged bicycle. You might have guessed that from the name!

Visiting Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park is a Grenada must do, and you shouldn’t miss it off your itinerary.

 

Learn about the spices that made the island famous

There’s one reason above all that Grenada has such a rich colonial history, and it’s not the pretty beaches. Dougaldston Spice Estate is the best place to learn about the heritage and traditions of spice cultivation, although there are others on the island. It is places like this where cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and many others have been cultivated for centuries.

Take a guided tour to see the machines which dried cocoa or processed nutmeg. Not only is this a chance to see what made the island famous and was the backbone of the economy, but it’s also an opportunity to pick up some souvenirs. You’ll be able to pick up local spices which are sure to be great gifts for your friends and family back home.

 So, now that you know the best things to do in Grenada that will make your trip special…

It’s time to pick somewhere to stay. We hope you’ve found our list helpful and you’ve got a better idea of what to put on your Grenada itinerary. Remember, whether you want rich history, gorgeous food, or some really memorable outdoor adventures, Grenada is the place for you. And when it comes to places to stay, check out Laluna – one of the most romantic resorts in the Caribbean. It’s the ideal base for all of the incredible activities above and many more.

We’re still here, and safe in Grenada.

All will remember ‘where were you for the Corvid19’ kind of like’ where were you for 9/11′.

Here in Grenada, we are at a standstill. After the first case was confirmed by a returning Grenadian from the UK, the Government of Grenada took it very seriously, and soon businesses were closed, and flights banned.

The students of  St George’s University were flown out. Grenadians bunkered down, for the first week of mandatory 24 hr lockdown.

This was then extended for another two weeks. So we stay and wait out the time, under the roofs of family. A great chance to be with siblings and spouses, and taking your relationship to another level, through love support and massive amounts of patience.

Tourism Downtime

grenada yoga on the beach

With all this downtime, take the advantage of time spent at home, trying out new recipes (providing you were able to stock up before the mass shopping buy out). Try a new or extended practice in yoga and meditation. There are plenty of YouTube videos accessible online.

Yet also a time to learn the new and unknown. Attending webinars that try to predict the future of tourism in the Caribbean, which will be challenging for the next few months.

Local fishermen to every Grenadian will be affected, by the lack of income of the tourist dollars. There is only so much the government can afford, in hand out paychecks to the tourism workers, now without work.

On the bright side, clever farmers have started home deliveries. Fish that was bound for export is now available to locals for a local rate. Grenada is a lush and fertile island. Crops grow here in fullness and taste. Great when a neighbor can trade you breadfruit for a cantaloupe or pumpkin.

For here in Grenada, a land that is known to have seen hard times, and the people, resilient to tough circumstances. All of our wonderful and loyal staff are all in good health and we keep communication on a group chat.

The Future

most romantic secluded hotels

We hope to open our doors once again and start our business, which will in return, support our local community and staff.
We are offering up to 25% OFF on all of our accommodations that are extended to December 19th, 2020.

No new cases were found in recent testing. Soon declaring that Grenada will be free of any virus. When the borders will be open? it will be determined by international regulations. In the meantime, follow your Governments call for action, so that we may all come out of this crisis together.

Given the current situation of the CORVID 19 the world is turned on its head. Hardcore travelers and adventure seekers alike have put their next vacations on hold, or at least thinking about it. Some are self-initiated and other government-imposed. Either way, the travel industry will be slowing down, giving everyone, no more excuses for a good spring cleaning at home.

New Booking and Cancellation Policy

For those who are spending their internet time at home browsing their computers for their next dream escape, Laluna has updated the Booking Cancellation policy. This makes it easier for one to book with optimism but, if unable make it to Grenada, easier to cancel, making it easier to choose Laluna. Giving you the flexibility to make and change holiday plans.

Cottage Categories

 

beach front Grenada hotels cottage suite room layout

The Beach Front Cottage Deluxe is the only cottage that is directly on the beach at Laluna. Just steps away from your veranda is Laluna’s secluded beach. A perfect way to start the day with a morning swim to make you feel invigorated and ready for your vacay. It is the most requested cottage, especially for Honeymooners.

30 steps up the hillside overlooking the main front desk area, restaurant, bar, and lounge are the Deluxe Cottages. They are the same layout as all the other cottages, but these units are free-standing. This means that you have not immediate neighbors. Some may have tropical garden views, and others, ocean views.

Laluna boutique cottages,

A further 30 steps above the Cottage Deluxe is the Cottage Suite, these units once again have the same layout as the Cottage Deluxe, but these are two units that are built attached side by side, still allowing for optimum privacy on your veranda an unobstructed views. A little more of a walk to get to, but the exercise is appreciated by those who like to indulge on their holiday. The advantage of being further on top of the property are the dramatic views.

laluna cottage suite grenada

The Cottage Suite is a semi-detached unit, which means that it works well as a Two Bedroom Cottage, as it is two cottage units side by side. Perfect for parents traveling with older teens (as Laluna does not accept children under the age of 12 years) or two couples traveling together.

Love Through the Ages

The month of February is celebrated as the month of romance, as Valentine’s Day falls on the 14th.
Starting out as a pagan celebration, the Christian church wanted to “Christianize” this celebration by placing this celebration of Lupercalia (a fertility festival) on the 14th instead of the 15th of February. It was also believed in England and France during the Middle Ages, that the mating season on the birds was February 14th. The popularity of Valentine’s Day began in the 17th century and by the 18th century, small tokens of affection and handwritten notes were exchanged between friends and lovers.

In the modern-day era, we send cards, flowers, and chocolates. But you can show your valentine a really special time at Grenada’s most romantic resort. As we do not accept children under the age of 12 years, Laluna gives the feeling of an adult break from the real world of work and family life. With only 16 cottages set in a secluded bay, you feel like you have the place all to yourselves.

How to Spend Valentine’s

Wake up with room service, and enjoy your breakfast on your private veranda. Breakfast can be ordered at any time of the day. Allow yourself a long and leisurely lie-in your four-poster Balinese king size bed. Snuggle up with your loved one in Italian linen sheets and have an uninterrupted morning of the bliss of just being in each other’s company.

most romantic hotels

Feeling somewhat active, after your restful morning? Grab your yoga mat that is placed in your walk-in cupboard. Catch one of the complimentary daily yoga classes at our open-aired yoga pavilion is situated directly on the beach. Check our daily yoga schedule, to see what suits your spiritual desire. Relax and unwind, that is what this most romantic resort is about. Lay back on the beach, catch the Happy Hour at our Sunset Bar and Lounge. Or for a more romantic option, watch the sunset from your private plunge pool in your cottage. Or ask our restaurant or front office staff to reserve you a Candlelit dinner on the beach.

Another way to truly unwind? Schedule one of our signature Balinese Massages from our Balinese therapists. Want to experience relaxation at the same time as your partner? Then book the Couples Balinese Massage. After your massage, lay on the Balinese Day Bed. Sip on some homemade Ginger tea, and enjoy the surroundings of lush tropical green foliage.

Grenada Sail Week

Overlapping the Billfish tournament is the Grenda Sail Week, on the 26th – 31st January.  The Sailing Week attracts boats from neighboring islands and visitors who either arrive on their own boat or charter a boat from one of the many yacht charter companies on Grenada, adding to the things to do in Grenada for the beginning of the year.

The Grenada Sailing Week is made up of some heavy competitive sailing with the racing class flying spinnakers. The cruising class is for those who want to compete but not on such a serious level. The Charter boat class, which tries to even out the playing field of standardized boats and the multihull class for the faster boats the speed across the course, especially on a downward leg. Challenging Olympic courses are set in tranquil waters off the southwest coast of the island, which makes for great viewing from the Grand Anse Beach,  to more open waters of the south coast as the race takes the sailing scene up the south coast. As in all good fun sailing fashion, each race day finishes with a prize-giving ceremony for that day’s winners, and of course lots of drinking and partying in the evening.

Lay Day falls in the middle of the race week, to give the crews a chance to recharge and time to experience the beauty and laid back scene of the island. For those visiting Grenada for the first time, they can take advantage of this day off to check out the numerous cocoa plantations that make their own chocolate, the Nutmeg Processing Station, Rivers Antoine Rum making factory (that still uses a traditional waterwheel to crush the cane). Or for more things to do in Grenada, take a hike to the rainforest and jump into a waterfall, a definite alternate from the sea salt and the beach.

No sailing week is complete unless you walk away with your souvenir Mount Gay Rum Red Cap that is given out at the Mount Gay Red Cap Party, that will be held at The Aquarium Restaurant for this year’s Grand Finale party.

Workboat Regatta

To wrap up the Grenada Sailing Week is the local Workboat Regatta on the 1st and 2nd of February. These authentic wooden boats are usually used for fishing in the local waters, attracting sailors from various communities throughout Grenada, plus the Sister Islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique

The boats have been upgraded to be faster and competitive in a race for island pride, all set on on the picturesque Grand Anse Beach. A great way to party with the locals and watch the colourful scene of the boats racing off the beach, all filled with music, food, and drinks on the beach. With lots of laughs and cheering, each race (which are multiple in the two days of racing) can only be completed with the skipper does the course, beaches the boat, jumps and runs to the finish line shooting a shot of Jack Iron Rum. As the rum in its name alone, one can figure out, is very strong, so after a few years of the skipper shouldering the responsibility of doing the final shot in order to win the race, he can now delegate a crew member to shoot on his behalf, to claim the winning placement at the end of the race.

Laluna is proud to sponsor its own workboat. With the local crew hailing from Woburn, team Laluna has proved to be a formidable competitor by being the overall winners in the Workboat Regatta in 2019. We wish them all the very best with good winds and Stamina for this year’s racing. Feel free to cheer them on, you cannot miss the boat with the Laluna logo on the sails.

Responsibility

Grenada Sailing Week has partnered with Sailors for the Sea and their Clean Regatta Program. This is in an effort to help clean up after ourselves in a responsible way to and deal with our oceans plastic pollution. The aim is to use less paper and plastic products and recycle where possible.
They ask that all who are involved in the regatta, from sailor to sponsor to help out. They have established protocols such as water bottle reduction, water refilling station, responsible/reusable dinnerware at the host marina’s, Port Louis, who have set recycling bins and offer free pump out to all vessels.

Please read this interesting article by Don Street about how yachties can help with waste management for the small islands in the Caribbean. We all need to be more responsible in how we dispose of our garbage.
