A Spice of Life in Grenada

Grenada is known as “The Spice Island.” Locally grown spices include cinnamon, cloves, ginger, bay leaf, turmeric, nutmeg, and chocolate!

We toured two Luxury resort properties while visiting the island. Both properties are located in a popular tourist area know as Grand Anse.

Silver Sands

The first development we visited was Silver Sands.

The design and furnishings at Silver Sands is very all cool white stone, straight lines, and modern.

These beach front villas are very expensive but do offer entire or proportional ownership. Silver Sands is also in the process of building the Hillside Villas which will be a bit less expensive. On site management will rent the Villas as part of the Silver Sands Resort while the owners are away. This is a very high-end luxury property on a beautiful beach.

Mount Cinnamon

The next property we visited was Mount Cinnamon ResidencesMount Cinnamon signThese residences are built on the property of the Mount Cinnamon resort and spa.  USAToday Readers Survey ranked Mount Cinnamon as the #1 resort in the Caribbean in 2018.

Mount Cinnamon sits on the hillside with a short walking path to the beach club which is directly on the white sands of Grand Anse Beach.Mount Cinnamon view from villa

The views from the properties are wonderful! On site property management will rent your property as part of the resort when the owners are away.  While owners are on property, they can enjoy all the amenities available at the resort.Mount Cinnamon beach

The furnishings in Mount Cinnamon varied from eclectic in the older villas to very sleek and modern in the newer units. I enjoyed the bold tropical colors and interesting architecture and furnishings in the older properties.


Grenada does have a citizen by investment option, but make sure you understand all the taxes and transfer fees first!

While on the tour bus, I saw a sign for a new development in the same Grand Anse area called Kawana Bay. One more property to explore the next time I visit!

We stayed an extra few hours at the Mount Cinnamon beach club to have lunch and enjoy the Grand Anse beach. Grenada was the tour groups favorite island. As we drove through town, noticed the old style architecture and narrow streets. We saw lots of businesses, commerce looked plentiful and interesting. We were told that Grenada is outside the Hurricane belt, witch was a big bonus! A quick check to Wikipedia says that the island had been hit 3 times in the last 50 years, ..so not completely outside 😉

After a beach walk back to the Silver Sands Property, we were able to catch a water taxi back to the ship dock.Water taxi

I really did like the look and feel of Grenada.  I would really like to spend my next vacation exploring the local culture, properties, and opportunities.
