Six Senses Just Opened Its First-Ever Caribbean Resort on the Island of Grenada

By: Alexander Britell - April 10, 2024

The food is fresh from local farmers. When you arrive, you’re given a choice of local spices, which then find their way into tea bags — used to prepare your evening tea each night before bed. There is even an “earth lab,” where you can immerse yourself in the sustainability movement on this island.

The first-ever Six Senses resort in the Caribbean officially opened its doors on Wednesday, offering up a distinct brand of luxury on an island where sustainability is not just a buzz word; it’s a way of life.

“They are the quintessence of sustainability practices,” Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority, tells Caribbean Journal about the brand. “What I love is that they’ve looked at what the strengths of Grenada as a destination are.”

The sustainability-focused, wellness-centered Six Senses La Sagesse Grenada is the latest project in an increasingly impressive portfolio by Range Developments, the company that is also behind the celebrated Park Hyatt St Kitts and the InterContinental in Dominica.

Set on stunning La Sagesse Beach (one of our favorites on the island), the new Six Senses is decidedly boutique: there are just 56 suites (all with private plunge pools), and another standalone 15 villas.

As with every Six Senses, there is a signature spa, just the beginning of a list of amenities that include a trio of eateries, an ice cream and coffee bar; a large outdoor pool; a library, a kids club and a teens’ lounge; and even unique touches like an organic garden and an “alchemy bar,” which lets you make your own scrubs, remedies and candles and a “biohack recovery lounge.”

The hotel also has Six Senses’ famous GEMs, or “guest experience makers,” who help facilitate every need and cater to every whim, including helping prepare those aforementioned spice teas.

It’s instantly the most exciting new luxury resort in the Caribbean. But it’s more than that; it’s also an injection of sustainability know-how and a new example for the rest of Grenada and the region, Roach says.

“I think it’s important for people who have adopted these practices that they come and share that and set an example across the industry,” Roach says. “I think that the management here has been very open to collaborations with other organizations as well as other hotels.”

Beyond sustainability, it’s an exciting new hotel for Grenada’s diverse, layered hotel product, one that seems to specialize in character-filled places to stay.

“We have a very unique product in terms of accommodations in Grenada,” she said. “Every hotel is different and has its own personality. And Six Senses is bringing a totally different look.”
