Known as the Spice Island for its cultivation of nutmeg, cocoa bean, cinnamon, mace and ginger, Grenada has all the ingredients for a carefree and authentic sojourn in the Caribbean. Regular visitors liken it to Barbados a generation ago, and its unspoilt nature has tremendous allure. With 121 kilometres of coastline, tropical mountain ranges, white sandy beaches, rainforest and spectacular waterfalls, its charming and varied topography can be appreciated all year round in a blissful average temperature of 27°C freshened by gentle breezes.
For your own five-star piece of paradise, look no further than Laluna Estate, an exclusive development of seven five-bedroom villas on the dramatic coastline of Morne Rouge, which lies adjacent to the romantic 16-cottage Laluna boutique hotel long cherished for its beach yoga pavilion, Balinese spa and Italian restaurent. Designe by Italian architects, Villas 5,6 and 7 are stylishly built, interior-decorator ready and can be delivered within 90 days. Villa 3 is sold turnkey and can be ready as a luxury holiday home in just 30 days. Prices range from US$3,935,000 to $7,535,000.
With your villa comes membership of an exclusive residence club, with access to the full range of services and amenities of Laluna Resort. Owners can take advantage of a management and rental contract with Laluna to maintain and rent their villa when they are not able to use it. One- and two-acre plots of land are also available; landowners can collaborate in the construction process or employ their own architect.
)As well as natural beauty, Grenada benefits from a package of practical advantages. The Maurice Bishop International Airport accommodates long-haul jets as well as private flights while the Camper Nicholson-managed Port Louis International Marina, in the picturesque capital of St George’s, has 160 berths for vessels up to 90m in length, with a further 90 new berths due to come into operation this year.
Indeed, the Estate has also partnered with Camper Nicholson and can offer - at an additional cost to the price of each villa - a 12-meter berth, or an option to upgrade to a bigger berth, in what is hailed as the cruising hub of the Southern Caribbean.
