The first-ever Six Senses resort in the Caribbean has officially broken ground on the island of Grenada.
The new project is the latest by the region’s hottest luxury hotel developer, Range Developments, the company behind the celebrated Park Hyatt St Kitts and the new Cabrits Resort Kempinski Dominica.
In a statement, Range Developments said the company was “committed to complete the project by November 2022.”
The 100-room resort will be set on Grenada’s spectacular La Sagesse beach.
“We have achieved this important milestone in a record time,” said Mr Mohammed Asaria, Managing Director and Board Member of Range Developments.
The agreement with Grenada’s government was just signed 10 months ago, Asaria said.
“[We] feel privileged to be placing our resort on such prime land in Grenada and to be working with Six Senses, a brilliant combination,” Asaria said. “These are exciting times ahead, as we always strive to make a difference in the communities we operate in. The Six Senses La Sagesse, Grenada resort, like all of our developments, will create a halo effect across the country’s economy.”
Six Senses, which is now part of the InterContinental Hotels Group umbrella (IHG purchased the brand last year), is a brand focused on a combination of wellness, sustainability and luxury.
While this project is the first-ever Six Senses resort in the wider Caribbean region, the company has long operated a spa at the Puntacana Resort and Club in the Dominican Republic.
“The Government of Grenada fully supports and welcomes the work of Range Developments, which has an outstanding record of delivering the finest world class resorts in the Caribbean,” said Dr. Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister of Grenada. “This project will impact significantly on Grenada’s rural economy and it will also offer visitors a more unique experience, given its location outside of the traditional tourist belt.”
It’s another big boost for Grenada’s growing luxury hotel sector, which now includes the recently-opened Silversands Hotel along with another highly-anticipated project, the Kimpton Kawana Bay, set to open its doors on Grenada’s iconic Seven Mile Beach this year.
