In a major boost for Grenada’s hotel sector, the island’s Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel has become a member of the Relais & Chateaux hotel group.
Relais & Chateaux is a collection of mostly family-run hotels with a focus on high-level cuisine, warm hospitality and five-star services.
“It is a huge honor to be part of such a highly regarded hotel group and we feel that there is much synergy between ourselves and Relais & Châteaux. We are looking forward to a great partnership and bright future together!” said Director of Sales & Marketing, Adele Garbutt.
Calabash is due to complete an extensive upgrade project in early October.
That project includes the renovation of the property’s reception, bar area and spa.
Calabash has 30 suites set on an eight-acre site facing the sands of L’Anse Aux Epines beach in Grenada.
It also features two restaurants: The Beach Club and Rhodes Restaurant, the latter a regular in Caribbean Journal’s list of the 50 best restaurants in the Caribbean.
Relais & Chateaux has a total of 540 hotels and restaurants around the world, including four others in the Caribbean in Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Nevis and St Barth.
