February 15, 2019

GRAND ANSE BEACH, Grenada (Feb. 1, 2019) - Grenada's premier all-inclusive luxury retreat, Spice Island Beach Resort (, has retained the coveted AAA Five Diamond rating for its third consecutive year. The prestigious rating has only been granted to six other resorts in the Caribbean and 121 hotels worldwide for 2019. Spice Island Beach Resort, the only independently owned and family operated property with a AAA Five Diamond rating, has also been recognized with the Inspector's Best of Housekeeping and Personal Favorite distinctions.
Nearly 27,000 hotels are reviewed by AAA inspectors who use guidelines to evaluate and rate properties for the AAA Five Diamond rating. Only 0.4 percent of hotels evaluated make the prestigious AAA Five Diamond list. This achievement elevates Spice Island Beach Resort as a premier property valued by AAA professional inspectors, the hospitality industry and over 59 million AAA members.
Additional accolades include the Inspector's Best of Housekeeping, which ranked the property within the top 25 percent of all AAA Five Diamond hotels based on cleanliness and condition, as well as the Inspector's Best of Personal Favorites distinction.
"What stands out amid the luxury and privacy for me, is the royal treatment provided by the staff, epitomizing a very high standard of excellence," reads a statement by the AAA inspector on why Spice Island Beach Resort was selected as a Personal Favorite.
"In addition to the AAA Five Diamond status, which is among the most prestigious recognition a hotelier can receive, we are delighted to have been awarded these additional distinctions at the discretion of the AAA Inspector," said Sir Royston Hopkin KCMG, chairman and managing director of Spice Island Beach Resort. "These honors reinforce the role which our hard-working staff and dedicated management team play on a daily basis to ensure that every guests' stay is uniquely memorable," Sir Royston added.
