Silversands Grenada Set to Open March 2018

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 7, 2017

Another significant new hotel project has come to the Spice Isle.

The highly-anticipated Silversands Grenada has announced a target opening date of March 2018 for its luxury resort on the island’s famed Grand Anse Beach.


The project will be comprised of two main buildings off Grand Anse, including 39 open-plan suites, three one-bedroom suites and a large penthouse.

That will be joined by nine residential villas, includign five beachfront villas and four hillside villas.


The resort will be anchored by a 100-meter infinity pool, billed as the longest in the Caribbean, stretching from the heart of the resort all the way to the sand.

Amenities will include a pair of restaurants: the casual-fare Beach Club and the Asian-inspired Thai eatery, along with the “Silversands Spa,” which will include four treatment rooms, a sauna, a hammam, a temperature-controlled pool and a gym.

It’s the latest major new project for Grenada, which has been looking to carve a luxury niche in the increasingly competitive Caribbean market.

The centerpiece of that new wave of development is the planned Kimpton Kawana Bay project, announced earlier this year, Kimpton’s second resort in the Caribbean.
