The latest addition to the Bespoke Hotels collection, luxurious Caribbean boutique retreat Mount Hartman Bay Estate is an exclusive Grenadan hideaway located on one of the most beautiful and sheltered bays in the Caribbean. Set on its own peninsular with a private beach and nestled in verdant grounds, Mount Hartman Bay Estate looks across the bay, protected by coral reefs, to a lush nature reserve.
Mount Hartman’s beautifully-appointed suites are spacious, elegantly furnished and all enjoy fantastic views over the bay and nature reserve. Some suites have outdoor showers and private balconies while others incorporate a large patio with stunning vistas. Other unique features include the built-in spa tub in the Jacuzzi Suite and in the Reef View Suite at the highest level of the property, guests have an unrivalled outlook from their four-poster bed over the Caribbean sea.
Seven of the suites are located in the hotel’s main building, the Cave, which is built into the hillside with its roof covered in grass and cacti; its Gaudiesque design has hints of Tracy Island about it. The eighth guestroom – the Romantic Suite – is housed in the Folly, a tower that rises from the swimming pool. Situated over two floors with a glass staircase that leads to the bathroom below, the bedroom has spectacular views on all four sides and the Juliette balcony features a waterfall that cascades into the pool below.
Mount Hartman Bay Estate is also available for rental on an exclusive basis, accommodating up to 16 guests. An additional property, the Beach House, is also located on the Estate and can be rented as a villa with service providing a further four enormous, luxurious en-suite guestrooms. Completely self-contained, the Beach House has its own swimming pool, family room and indoor/outdoor kitchen.
When looking for a true Caribbean escape where privacy is paramount, Mount Hartman Bay Estate is a unique hideaway that exudes charm and epitomises relaxation.
In addition to Mount Hartman Bay Estate’s accommodations, the hotel also incorporates a restaurant and all-day bar, an infinity pool with a wide decking area and comfortable loungers, a Jacuzzi spa, a gym complete with personal trainer on request, and a library stocked with books, Playstation games and DVDs (to watch either in the library’s home cinema or in-suite). The property also has a private golden-sanded beach leading down to the bay’s clear waters with complimentary fishing and snorkelling equipment, along with a rechargeable sea scooter. Guests can rent the hotel’s own jet boat for motorised watersports such as water-skiing and wakeboarding, and a 51ft superboat is also available for charter for the day or half day – ideal for cruising round the island, visits to the underwater sea sculpture park at Molinère Bay or perhaps to Hog Island for a beach barbeque.
Excursions are also available with water activities such as deep sea fishing, diving, dolphin and whale watching and sailing, while on-land activities include golf, treks in the sky forest, a visit to the River Antoine rum distillery, touring the island’s beautiful waterfalls, visiting the Belmont Estate cocoa plantation, and river tubing with a picnic lunch.
Wining and Dining is a highlight at Mount Hartman Bay Estate with the best cuisine on the island created by Chef Roger. Not for nothing is Grenada known as the Spice Isle with ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, mace, turmeric, vanilla and cocoa all growing in abundance. Native fruit and vegetables such as passion fruit, coconuts, bananas, mangos, callaloo, dasheen, almonds and more all grow on the Estate; Chef Roger utilises all these plus the freshest local ingredients from the markets and the pick of the catch from the local fisherman to create culinary delights for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in-between that change daily.
