There are very few resorts in the world that can offer you the sense of sheer opulence and luxury that you find at the Spice Island Beach Resort, where you are treated as the personal guest of Sir Royston Hopkin, the owner. This ensures you receive impeccable and totally personal service, with the staff addressing you by name and knowing your personal tastes from day 1. The resort has been around since the 1960s, but was largely rebuilt after hurricane damage in 2004, in a style that is smart, elegant and modern, but never flashy.
The Spice Island has only 64 suites, 32 of them located along the beach, each decorated in a blend of island traditional with contemporary chic. The ultimate in luxury is provided by the Royal Collection Pool Suites, with private pools and private gardens, and the Cinnamon and Saffron Suites, which are literally on the beach. The Oliver’s Restaurant, elegant with arches and pillars, offers an impressive 7-course menu which includes local specialities, the meal being accompanied by live steel, reggae and calypso bands — and the weekly beach barbecue is something not to be missed. The resort welcomes families, with free child deals in low season, and children have their own supervised club.
