An All-Inclusive Resort Unlike Any Other
Adam Stewart, CEO of Sandals Resorts International, gives us a sneak peek into the incredible Sandals LaSource Grenada, the newest addition to the Luxury Included® brand.
What attracted you to Grenada?
We’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to take Sandals Resorts to Grenada for over a decade and it’s as wonderful as we could have wished for. If you took the best of the Caribbean and merged all the islands into one, you’d get Grenada! Great people, stunning beaches, rich culture – it’s the perfect backdrop for a Sandals Resort.
What is unique about the newest Sandals?
We’re always looking for new ways of making the best better and at Sandals LaSource Grenada, we’ve poured 33 years of experience into one resort. You’ll find lush natural gardens, a stunning ocean and beach coupled with the incredible warmth of the Grenadian people and a luxurious property to create magic.
There are so many unique features: the SkyPool Suites with private infinity-edged plunge pools on the balconies; Butch’s Chophouse, the company’s first ever steakhouse; and the South Seas Village, an exotic village that takes its inspiration from Bali.
What’s new at the pool?
We’ve created one of the best resort pools in the Caribbean, featuring a sunken seating deck and sexy firepits where guests can walk into the pool and enjoy the modern and lush atmosphere without ever getting wet – unless they want to! We’ve also added a variety of different settings, from poolside cabanas to private lounge areas and outdoor covered seating areas – and of course, guests can count on poolside butler service.
What are some of your favourite additions?
There are so many but if I had to choose, I’d say our new and exclusive Tranquility Soaking Tubs. They’re located on private terraces and patios creating a whole new way to celebrate romance in the Caribbean.
