“We’re extremely pleased with reports from our contractors that the rebuilding and renovation project is moving ahead as planned,” said Sir Royston Hopkin, KCMG, owner and chairman of the property.
“Our rebuilding project is ambitious as we reintroduce the epitome of elegance on par with other well-known and highly-regarded luxury
hotels in the Caribbean region, but we’ve allowed enough time to bring our vision to life,” he added.
When Spice Island Beach Resort in Grenada re-opens on Dec. 15, 2005, it will unveil an unmatched level of accommodations and unprecedented brand of chic style and timeless luxury. Spice Island Beach Resort has been closed since last Atumn following damages sustained from Hurricane Ivan.
