The Caribbean’s Newest Luxury Resort Is in Grenada

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 6, 2020

The Caribbean’s newest luxury resort has officially opened its doors on the island of Grenada.

The Point at Petite Calivigny opened this week as Grenada’s first lifestyle and wellness resort. 

The property is home to three villas and 12 suites on an 11-acre estate above Grenada’s Benji Bay. 

The boutique resort, which has access to a private beach, has a spa, a beach bar and restaurant and five pools. 

Each of the suites has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, private balconies and the suites share two large swimming pools, a swimming pool and an outdoor grilling station.

“The Point is the first luxury resort in Grenada that is totally focussed on wellness,” said Chris Ashby, owner of the resort. “We offer discerning travelers the perfect combination of luxury accommodation in a peaceful setting with the ability to design their stay exactly as they wish.”

The property’s wellness offering includes a state-of-the-art gym, along with a slate of classes for activities ranging from stand-up paddle boarding to high-intensity interval training and Barre, a full-body workout inspired by ballet movements, Crossfit and boxing.

That’s along with a menu of meditation and yoga courses and a regular Grenadian-style tea ceremony. 

The opening of the property comes as Grenada completed its multi-phased reopening earlier this month, one that included access for travelers from the United States. 

The opening of the luxe resort is part of what is a growing luxury sector in Grenada, buoyed by the new Silversands Grenada and a soon-to-launch resort by Kimpton.

“The impetus in creating The Point was to offer a truly Grenadian experience,” Ashby said. “I am proud to say that The Point is owned by a Grenadian, was built by Grenadians and is staffed by Grenadians.”
