Six Senses’ First-Ever Caribbean Resort Breaks Ground

Six Senses’ first-ever Caribbean resort has officially broken ground in Grenada, adding to Grenada’s growing position as a luxury hotspot.

The new Six Senses La Sagesse will be built on La Sagesse beach in Grenada’s St David’s Parish, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

It’s the latest Caribbean project for Range Developments, which is behind some of the top luxury projects in the Caribbean, including the celebrated Park Hyatt St Kitts and the soon-to-debut Kempinski Cabrits Resort in Dominica.

“Grenada is a wonderful country, and we have been welcomed warmly,” said Mohammed Asaria, Managing Director and Board Member of Range Developments. “Range will create the unimaginable at La Sagesse. It is a destination waiting to be created. The project will be transformative, not just for St David’s but the entire State of Grenada. In a very short period of time, La Sagesse will become the second tourism capital in Grenada.”

The project, which is scheduled to make its debut in 2022, is projected to create more than 500 jobs during construction and “many more” full time jobs.

“The initiation of this project by Range Developments provides a clear demonstration of the confidence of investors in the Grenada economy,” said Grenada Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell. “The location of the project illustrates Government’s commitment to ensuring that development is wholistic and is in fact spread across all parts of the country. The coming of the world renown Six Senses brand will help to further solidify Grenada’s position as a top tourist destination. 

The hotel will add to what is an enviable collection of both existing and in-development luxury properties in Grenada.

That includes the signature Calabash and Spice Island Beach Resort, the recently-opened Silversands Grenada and the Kimpton Kawana Bay, which is slated to open in 2020.

 “We’re positioned for exciting growth in the Caribbean while keeping the emphasis on sustainability,” said Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses, which is part of the InterContinental Hotels Group umbrella. “This is core to our brand and influences all aspects of the business from the materials we use to how we engage with the local community. Working with Range Developments means we can bring this vision to life, with a little help from the island’s striking natural assets.”

The project is part of a wider plan for the La Sagesse area, which is envisioned as a master-planned development with two luxury resorts, villas, a spa and retail.
