Three things guests love about Sandals Grenada
1. Guests love the sushi and Champaign
Sushi lovers will be happy to know they have pretty much found a home at Sandals Grenada. Though the resort has 10 simply delectable restaurants to choose from, Soy Sushi Bar is a favorite, and a must visit during your stay. Here you’ll find the freshest sushi every day, best paired with a glass of Champaign. The staff will ensure you have an experience that is pleasing to the pallet. Once you’ve fulfilled your sushi craving, you can also check out Cucina Romana, Sandals’ Italian restaurant where you can find top notch Italian cuisine.
Insider tip: The most popular restaurants at Sandals Grenada require a reservation. Make sure to make some dinner reservations on arrival, especially during peak season! For dress-codes and opening times,
2. Guests love the pools and swim up bar
What’s a Caribbean beach resort without a swim up bar? Well, probably still a pretty decent resort, but make no mistake about it, being able to swim right up to the bar, hop on a bar stool and enjoy great ambiance, music and good company is truly incomparable. At Sandals Grenada, you’ll be able to spend some time in the ‘party pool’, the highlight of which is the swim up bar where there’s always an interesting activity in progress. Beach side though, you’ll find a quieter pool, if peace and serenity is what you crave.
3. Guests love the Pink Gin Beach
With the beautiful Pink Gin Beach as a backdrop, Sandals Grenada is hard to beat. Guests can lounge near the ocean and watch as the waves lap gently against the shoreline as they are reminded of just how lucky they are to be in this part of the world where it sometimes seems like time stands still to offer more time to soak in the lushness of life. In any case, after spending a late afternoon watching the sun go down in Grenada, you’ll be more than convinced you’re in the right place.
Insider Tip: Wake up to the sound of the ocean and enjoy the most incredible sunsets from one of the luxurious Skypool Suites.

In addition to these amazing three reasons guests love Sandals Grenada, while on the island you will be able to book some amazing half and full day tours of the island via Island Routes’ office right at the resort.
