For many years, Grenada has been known…
Alive and authentic, Belmont Estate is the ultimate Caribbean agro-tourism adventure. This restored estate produces organic cocoa, operates an organic goat dairy, and has its own museum, gardens, restaurant and catering services.
Grand Etang Lake
Considered the crown of Grenada, this mysterious crater lake sits silently in the Grand Etang Forest Reserve 1,742 feet/ 531 metres above sea level and is a fitting rest stop for hikers and other visitors to the Grand Etang National Park.
Fort George, the oldest structure in the country was completed in1705. There are old tunnels and narrow stair cases and the ramparts evoke a feeling of the past. It provides a stunning view of the capital, the Carenage and the harbour, which is Ideal for photography.
River Antoine Rum Distillery
No other distillery in the entire Caribbean has been in operation as long as River Antoine, and very few have so carefully maintained traditional methods of rum preparation. Visitors can watch as rum is made in much the same manner that it was in the 18th century, when it fired the throats of the real buccaneers.
The Flamboyant Hotel & Dive Grenada Launches “Romance on the Reef”
October 18, 2012
It is with great excitement that Grenada’s Ultimate Dive Resort (Flamboyant Hotel and Villas and Dive Grenada) launched its new brand, "Romance on the Reef." Romance on the Reef is centered on hotel’s innovative underwater wedding package, "Caribbean Blue." Also included is a vow renewal package, "Vows of the Sea" and a proposal package "Proposal Plunge." “These romance packages are unique to our island destination as such packages aren’t readily available in most of the other Eastern Caribbean Islands”, said Managing Director of Flamboyant Hotel and Villas, Mr. Lawrence Lambert.
Most couples dream of a spectacular wedding day, one that can be shared with all their friends and families. Some couples prefer the traditional church wedding; some couples choose a beautiful beach wedding, while others go for the gorgeous garden wedding. If you thought that getting married couldn’t possibly get any more creative; it just did! Grenada's Ultimate Dive Resort has raised the bar and taken the concept of weddings and transformed it into an adventure of a lifetime. “What an experience couples will have! Just imagine the thrill! Imagine the journey into the Caribbean Sea, dressed in your wedding suit and dress reciting, “vows of bubbles”
To achieve this extraordinary feat Dive Grenada also trained a pastor to dive, to prepare him for this task, thus making this new package as safe and legitimate as any other traditionally held ceremony. With the use of an underwater slate and pencil, he will do the final exchange of vows for the couple.
“The intention was to design and create something new and exciting for overseas guests and locals alike and the launch of "Romance on the Reef" give couples the ultimate opportunity to express their love with a myriad of marine life as witnesses”, remarked Randall Dolland, Sales and Marketing Manager, Flamboyant Hotel and Villas. Over the years the property made a name for itself with the popularity of its wedding and dive packages. It was therefore not surprising that the two were combined to create one unforgettable experience.
Mr. Dolland further stated that, “We hope the introduction of this new product will increase Grenada’s profile as it is rooted in two of the key niches also promoted by the destination.”
Grenada’s Ultimate Dive Resort remains committed to being proactive and doing whatever possible to not only improving the tourism product but also to bring more visitors to the destination. Last year the resort installed a bench 5 metres under the water’s surface in the vicinity of the ‘ring of children,’ at the island’s popular Underwater Sculpture Park located at Molinere Bay, where divers can quite literally “lime and dive”.
