Fodor's Expert Review Laluna

Morne Rouge, St. George, Grenada Fodor's Choice

You may think you've landed on an island in the South Pacific when you reach this upscale getaway, hidden away on a pristine beach near Grenada's Quarantine Point. Laluna's large thatch-roof cottages—each with its own plunge pool—line the beachfront and climb 10 acres of wooded hillside. Bedrooms in the breezy, open-plan cottages, which are all the same except for their location and color scheme, open onto large verandas that serve as indoor-outdoor sitting areas. Bathroom showers are partially exposed to the outdoors. Seven luxury hillside villas are the first phase of Laluna Estate, a villa community on a waterfront bluff next to the hotel. Laluna's guests congregate at its comfortable beachfront lounge and bar and have free access to a small books, games, music, and videos library, as well as to a couple of bikes and a kayak or two. A resident yogi provides instruction in yoga, Pilates, tai chi, and meditation. The restaurant, which specializes in Italian fare, opens directly onto the beach for a perfectly romantic setting. The resort faces west, assuring beautiful sunset views. No dress code, no rules, no set dinnertime, no problem.
