Grenada will soon be home to a Sandals resort, following the purchase of the LaSource Resort property, the company announced Thursday.

The agreement, which was reached after “ongoing discussions” with Grenada’s government, is the company’s first property in Grenada.

“After looking to expand here for more than a decade, we are delighted to confirm the acquisition of our first-ever resort in Grenada and are incredibly proud to have found the perfect location to add to our brand,” Sandals Resorts Chairman Gordon “Butch” Stewart said in a statement. “We are confident that guests will continue to be impressed by our tradition of exceeding expectations through innovation and unwavering service, which has become our standard across the Sandals Resorts brand.”

The LaSource resort announced that it would be closing its doors last month.

The property is located on Pink Gin Beach, and will open following what the company called “certain enhancements customary to the Sandals Resorts brand.”

Sandals will add 100 rooms to offer a total of 200 guestrooms, private cottages and bunaglows, many of which will reportedly be concierge and butler-level suites.

The resort will include restaurants called Neptunes and Spices, along with Cafe de Paris, which will feature baked goods and coffee.

Sandals Grenada will also feature a Red Lane Spa and a new infinity pool and swim-up bar.

The Grenada resort will be the 14th in the portfolio of the Jamaica-based company, following what Stewart said was a nearly 12-year search “to grow our roots in the Spice Island.”

“We are eager to make our debut and share with guests not only the beauty of our new resort, but to share the beauty of Grenada, its culture and its people,” Stewart said. “It is our distinct pleasure and honour to foster the expansion of tourism to this jewel in the Caribbean.”

Terms of the purchase were not disclosed. The company said it would release further details on investment and the expected launch date in the coming days.
