Grenada’s premier luxury retreat, and one of Green Globe’s top performing members, the Spice Island Beach Resort, has once again been awarded the Virgin Holidays’ Gold Award for the eighth consecutive year as the #1 property in the tour operator’s exclusive worldwide Platinum Collection.

With over 450 travel industry buyers and suppliers present this prestigious honor was presented during World Travel Market 2013 in London at the Virgin Holidays’ awards presentation, which recognizes hotels, airlines and car rental companies worldwide. Amanda Wills, managing director of Virgin Holidays, in declaring the resort the Gold winner, emphasized the resort’s commitment to excellence, stating: “Spice Island Beach Resort consistently maintains the highest standard of service and continues to reinvest in its product.” Her reference to the resort’s reinvestment was in recognition of its just completed renovations and upgrade.

“It is a great honor for us every time we earn an industry award, particularly when our commitment to providing unforgettable vacation experiences is recognized year after year as the #1 property in Virgin Holidays’ Platinum Collection,” said Sir Royston O. Hopkin KCMG, Spice Island Beach Resort’s owner and chairman. “It is the dedication and hard work of the entire Spice team to which we attribute this achievement, as they consistently provide the utmost in customer service and attentiveness.”

Tucked away on pristine shorelines just 10 minutes from the airport, Spice Island Beach Resort is surrounded by immaculate tropical gardens and offers a world-class spa featuring treatments using local herbs and spices. The resort also offers an unmatched culinary program serving seven-course dinners ranging from diet-friendly to decadent.

The property, which was also ranked the #1 hotel in the Caribbean based on TripAdvisor reviews, recently completed a multimillion dollar renovation project to ensure the boutique resort remains at the forefront of the luxury tourism market.
