We are delighted to welcome the great value Flamboyant Hotel and luxurious Spice Island Beach Resort to our portfolio. More and more divers are choosing to travel to the Caribbean. It's well known as a winter sun destination but it also offers great all-round conditions above and below the water. With the introduction of two new hotels, we now offer a choice of five properties on the beautiful island of Grenada suitable for all budgets.
The Flamboyant Hotel represents great value for money, without compromising on quality. Offering fantastic views across the capital St George, and the Caribbean Sea and mountains, this hotel benefits from a freshwater swimming pool, gym, games room, restaurant, sports bar and evening entertainment. Non-motorised sports, massages and beauty treatments are also available for those wishing to make the most of their time above the water. Seven nights’ at the Flamboyant Hotel cost from £1,055 per person, to include flights, transfers and room only accommodation, based on two people sharing. An eight day dive pack costs from £233 per person, to include air tanks (or 30% Nitrox, if qualified), weights and local tax.
For those looking for pure indulgence, the Spice Island Beach Resort, located on the Grand Anse Beach, is considered to be one of the finest hotels in the Caribbean. A family-run hotel with all the benefits of a luxury establishment, the all-suite Spice Island Beach Resort offers a choice of fine and casual dining, bar, swimming pool, spa, fitness centre, floodlit tennis court, non-powered water sports, nightly entertainment and a full concierge service. 34 of the hotels suites open directly onto the beach, while 17 have their own private swimming pool. Seven nights’ at the Spice Island Beach Resort cost from £2,448 per person, to include flights, transfers and all inclusive accommodation, based on two people sharing. An eight day dive pack costs from £233 per person, to include air tanks (or 30% Nitrox, if qualified), weights and local tax.
Grenada is home to over 50 dive sites ranging from stunning coral reefs and fascinating wrecks, to adrenaline charged drift dives. Divers looking to get up close to the marine life can admire seahorses, spotted eagle rays, moray eels, frogfish and sharks, while those more interested in wrecks have a wide range to choose from including the Bianca C - a 200 metre liner that sank in 1961, and the Hema 1 - Grenada’s newest wreck. Other highlights include the eel garden at ‘Northern Exposure’; the treasure-trove of marine species at ‘Flamingo Bay’; the other worldly underwater sculpture park at ‘Moliniere Reef’; and the drift dive at ‘Purple Rain’ which gives the chance to dive in a shower of purple Creole wrasse.
Currently there are two British Airways and two Virgin flights each week into Grenada. British Airways have recently announced that both flights will now continue to operate during the Summer season in response to increased demand for this stunning island.
