Grenadine House is a historic site on the island of St. Vincent. Originally built in 1765, the boutique hotel once housed the British Administrator of the island. Now it has been transformed into a picturesque hotel where guests can enjoy on-site spa facilities and access to the island’s natural beauty, made famous by Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
The Grenadine House is nestled in a residential area of St. Vincent’s capitol, Kingstown. It’s just blocks away from popular tourist destinations like botanical gardens, dormant volcanoes, black sand beaches and secluded swimming holes and waterfalls.
The hotel itself is beautifully preserved in the original colonial styling. I stayed in one of the Superior Rooms located with a private balcony and a great view overlooking the city and sea. Inside my room was a queen-size bed wrapped in comfy white linens with rustic bedside tables and reading lamps as well as my own private bathroom which was well stocked with complimentary toiletries. The whole room was filled with Caribbean charm from the tropical curtains to the palm tree ceiling fan.
The Standard Rooms and Superior Rooms located in the West Wing have views of either the bay or the gardens from their own private terraces. Each room in the Main House has its own covered terrace which is the perfect spot to enjoy the Caribbean sunsets. Though only half of the rooms have private terraces, all 18 guest rooms have air conditioning, wireless internet and cable television.
There are plenty of dining options at the Grenadine House, The Sapodilla Room fully embraces the Grenadine House’s heritage; the room itself dates back to the mid 18th century. The flagship restaurant also offers a private dining room which is ideal for formal business lunches and dinners. The menu is full of international favorites like Caesar salad and pizzas as well as Creole favorites like lime marinated shrimp and lobster tail. The hotel also has outdoor dining on The Terrace which has a nice casual atmosphere with a fantastic view over the bay. The The West Indies Bar has expert bartenders mixing top shelf liquors with local favorites.
One of the main attractions of the Grenadine House, is the Oasis Spa. Every spa therapist is internationally trained in various types of massage, including Thai, Swedish and hot stone. Other body and facial treatments are also available like body scrubs, wraps, manicures, pedicures and facials. Guests also have access to the pool and gym.
The Grenadine House is also a popular choice for business travelers. There’s two meeting rooms outfitted with wireless microphones, sound system, wireless internet, LED video projector and basics like flip boards and paper boards. The Hairoun Meeting Room can accommodate up to 80 guests for presentations or 25 people for a conference. Smaller groups may prefer the Bequia Meeting Room which seats 15 to 40 people in various layouts.
The team at the Grenadine House was very helpful and more than accommodating. The receptionist always took the time to answer questions about the island or the colorful history of the hotel while the security guard gave some useful directions around town.
The central location of the hotel makes it a great choice for sightseeing around the town or a stop over before heading to one of the islands. Guests get to enjoy the gorgeous views over Kingstown and the Caribbean from the comfort of their rooms. This is possibly the best choice in town and I recommend Grenadine House to any traveler staying in Kingstown.
