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.
