“Relaxing”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Grenada. It's hard to describe the Cabier Ocean Lodge experience, it has so many facets.
The accommodation is varied; we stayed in their basic guest house room and it certainly was basic and very casual and maybe wouldn't suit many holiday makers as we all become more and more used to high standards of facilities and furnishings. However the bed was comfortable and sleeping with the fresh air blowing through the screen protected louvre windows, being able to watch the swaying palm trees outside and listen to the constant sound of waves and wind was so incredibly relaxing I am finding it hard to settle down again at home.
We had breakfast and dinner every day in the restaurant. The food was all locally sourced fresh produce and was consistently very interesting and delicious. Most of the time we could eat in the outdoors area overlooking the sea which we really enjoyed, the occasional rain shower meant we had to retreat to more sheltered but still pleasant surroundings. There was a bar on decking outside where we often spent the hour before dinner trying out the cocktail menu. Here we met other guests and swopped news and travel ideas. The Lodge is small and the guests a mix of ages, nationalities and interests, added to this the staff, also a mix of ages, nationalities and interests, and the unusual collection of rescue animals helped to make the holiday an unusual combination of being incredibly interesting and super relaxing. There is plenty to do on the island and Iris and Bruno helped us with arrangements and Florence and Gail helped us with information. We hired a jeep for three days and had some adventurous touring in the north. We took the bus to St George's which in itself was great fun and had a sociable time in the market there. We went on Bruno's Spice Island Trip with other guests at the Lodge; what a full day that was with visits to see cinnamon bark being stripped, the fish market in Grenville, a very ancient rum distillery, chocolate making at Belmont, lunch at Aggie's, nutmeg processing and a waterfall.
For relaxing we loved sitting on the headland in the garden with a wonderful view out to sea, watching the waves and the birds.
We travelled twice to Grand Anse beach where the swimming was superb and there was plenty of shade under the trees.
This holiday had everything thanks to the unique nature of Cabier Ocean Lodge.

Visited here in March 2014 after extensive research on somewhere quiet to visit, close to a beach and within a reasonable budget. Simply put, Cabier exceeded these expectations on every front.

The location - 40mins outside the capital, St. George's - is remote, but the bus service is frequent (and fun!), or there's always a taxi should you need it (approx US$45 to get into St. George's/the airport).

The accommodation has everything you'll need - it's clean, spacious, comes with a fridge, safe and enough stuff to cook with (if you'd rather forgo Bruno's excellent cooking in the restaurant). A short bus trip to a supermarket in nearby Grenville (EC $3.5) will sort you out for breakfast & lunch items (and cheap bottles of beer/rum).

The lodge has a great vista between two bays, and the terrace bar/restaurant is a lovely way to spend an evening. Cocktails are great (and strong) and the food is fresh and expertly prepared - what did you expect from a classically trained French chef?

The staff are friendly and welcoming and catered for every whim / found a solution for every problem. We had an excellent tour of the island with our host and could have done so much more - had we not been taken by the serenity of the place: the rooms are a stone's throw from a great beach - you may share it with one or two people at most, but more often you'll have it to yourself.


Would happily return

Cabier is a great place to explore the eastern side of Grenada. Its more authenitic than the south and west of the Island, we were met with a cheery hello by everyone and chatted to so many Grenadians on route to the beaches, the towns and up in the villages. The restaurant is in a wonderful setting and the food is fabulous, tasty, interesting and although caribbean prices its a lot cheaper than other places we ate at. Some of the rooms are a bit frayed around the edges but they are spacious with verandahs overlooking the beach which is a mere few steps away. We styed a week and had no complaints and would have happily stayed longer. The small petting zoo there is actually a sanctuary and Iris has saved all of the animals from becoming either bushmeat or from major physical neglect. It is hard to see them in cages but the alternative is they would have been killed or in severe distress and here they are well cared for. Whilst there a few groups of nursery and infant school kids visited the 'petting zoo' so it is also educational and they get to experience the animals in a different way from their elders. Overall a fabulous Caribbean experience with great staff who couldnt have been more helpful.

Bruno's is an absolutely must visit when in Grenada. We went twice and each time the food was fantastic. The is a gastronomic journey to be taken at a leisurely pace. On each visit we arrived at about 11am and had coffee before walking down to the beach for a swim. The bay is very safe for swimming with no sudden depth changes or strong currents and the sand is fine and golden. After a swim it's time to sit down for lunch - make sure you are hungry because there is a lot to eat. The presentation is beautiful and the idea of four or five small starters each with its own distinct but complimentary flavour is brilliant (the dessert follows a similar format) and sits perfectly either side of a sumptuous main course. We went for the fish menu each time (with a request for lobster on our second visit) - this place gets 5 stars and more from me!!

This restaurant is set above the sea with mango and orange trees around a lovely relaxed dining terrace and bar. The couple, Iris and Bruno who run the place are friendly and welcoming as are all the staff. She is Austrian, he is French and we were told that Bruno, the chef, has Michelin starred experience. Certainly the meals were delicious with the emphasis while we were there, on very fresh local fish with soufflés and warm chocolate puddings straight out of the oven. He gave away the high standard of his cuisine when he described how he has learned to adjust his dishes to please the varying palates of visitors of differing nationalities. So happy were we with his fare that we did not venture elsewhere!

This is the perfect place to stay if you want a low key alternative to the busy resorts in the south west corner of the island. The hotel is idyllically situated on a promontory between two classic tropical island beaches fringed by palm trees. You are guaranteed an amazing view as all rooms look out over the sea and access to the beach on the northern side of the promontory is unlikely to take more than about a minute from your room (down some steps). This is the Atlantic Ocean, not the Caribbean, but the water in March was as warm and clear as you could wish and you can often have the entire beach to yourself.

We ate in every night of our week’s stay and the food was consistently brilliant. Bruno is a high class chef and what he serves up is classic French with a Caribbean twist. There’s only one menu each evening, which suited us fine; infinitely preferable to a large choice of dishes which will be taken out of a freezer and microwaved! Iris and Bruno are wonderful hosts and the atmosphere of the hotel generally is relaxed and friendly. Iris arranged for us to hire a car and, while we enjoyed touring the island, we left wishing we had a bit more time just to chill out at Cabier.

We had a wonderful time at Cabier, Bruno & Iris are fantastic hosts, Bruno gave us an excellent day tour of Grenada, at evening meal we were served the most amazing food, one night we had 3 lobsters which were the nicest we had ever tasted.
Would highly recommend cabier.

Room Tip: Check where the dogs sleep at night, as we notice they sleep outside one of the rooms.
