Loved as a haven where untouched beauty meets the warmth of local hospitality, Grenada is fast becoming one of the most popular travel destinations in the Caribbean. Grenada, dubbed as the Spice of the Caribbean, is a sovereign state in the West Indies, within the Caribbean Sea.
The hot destination boasts a simple way of life, adorned with all of the luxuries provided by some of the best all-inclusive Caribbean resorts. The pure and authentic atmosphere of the island promises an instant feeling of revival, and there’s no better place to experience this than from the Spice Island Resort.
I was lucky enough to enjoy the luxurious comforts of the resort while discovering the beauty of Grenada.
