Sea spa: Chocolate therapy at Grenada's Spice Island resort

Where is it?

The Spice Island is on the up with the superyacht set, but those in the know have headed to this bastion of hospitality on the perfectly curved white sands of Grand Anse beach for decades. Hidden in the exotic gardens at the back of the low-lying property is Janissa’s Spa, which centres around an outdoor relaxation lounge and a pool with lily-pads.

Why the hype?

The resort may be all-inclusive but forget the stigma, this simply means that there is a vast in-room drinks cabinet at your disposal and that porters with sparkling gold buttons arrive brandishing platters of bite-size snacks throughout the day. The real indulgence is Oliver’s restaurant, with its daily-changing five-course menu serving up dishes such as chilled papaya soup and grilled snapper with a lemon emulsion. Pack appropriately: guests at this old-school establishment still dress for dinner – blazers and a cocktail dress are de rigueur.

What to have?

Unsurprising for an island that is proud of its natural produce, its spa menu is focused on the restorative powers of local herbs, organic chocolate and spices. If you have a sweet tooth choose its Spice Classic Chocolate Body Wrap for 50 minutes of cocoa-induced bliss. As close to a chocolate overdose as you can hope to get, it nourishes the skin and smells delicious.

Best by boat

Port Louis Marina, run by Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, can comfortably accommodate yachts up to 90 metres and is a short drive or tender blast away.
