The Beach House
Beautiful by day or night
The clue’s in the name - with its stunning views of the white sand of Portici Bay, the Beach House is a sun-seeker’s paradise by day and a glamorously casual hotspot by night. Sip a cocktail and watch the light fade while soaking up the tropical ambience of the gardens, indoor and outdoor decks and private beachside platforms. Then sample a speciality tuna dish, grilled lobster, a range of meats and burgers or a vegetarian delight – all topped off with a delicious dessert.

Oliver’s at Spice Island Resort
Lavish and luxurious
With a beachside setting at one of Grenada’s best resorts, Oliver's Restaurant is the place to go for authentic Creole and international cuisine in a fine-dining atmosphere. Listen to the sounds of the island’s best calypso, reggae and steel bands and select from dishes created with local produce and spices. Choose the five- or seven-course set menu and maybe you’ll start with the trio of flying fish and move on to beef tenderloin before a final course of chocolate soufflé. Divine.
