Owned and operated by Sir Royston Hopkin and his wife and children, the Spice Island Beach Resort covers eight acres and features 64 suites, two restaurants, a lavish spa and polished service that has earned the property AAA’s elusive Five Diamond and AAHS’s Six Star Diamond Awards. The Hopkin family hails from Grenada and they have worked for years to keep the celebrated hotel all in the family.

From smaller garden suites that are 620 sq. ft to sprawling rooms that have their own pools, saunas and outdoor terraces, the rooms are second only to the hotel’s amenities. Guests here pay one rate and receive all meals and excursions as part of their room fee, which is perfect for those that don’t want to worry about their budget while on vacation.
