GRAND ANSE BEACH, Grenada (Feb. 4, 2020) – Spice Island Beach Resort (www.SpiceIslandBeachResort.com) continues to assert itself as the premier luxury hotel in the Caribbean for discerning travelers. The global Washington D.C.-based news source U.S. News & World Report featured Spice Island Beach Resort as the 4th Best All-Inclusive Resort in the Caribbean and 7th Best Hotel in the Caribbean overall in its annual “Best Hotels” ranking. The family-owned hotel was also the highest scoring Grenada property in each category.

Nearly five million unique monthly users visit the travel section of U.S. News & World Report, which offers travelers advice on vacations and hotel accommodations. To calculate the “Best Hotel” rankings, the publication follows a methodology where editors use an unbiased approach to research thousands of hotels and evaluate dozens of data points such as hotel ratings, guest reviews and feedback from professional travel experts. This year’s 10th annual feature evaluated more than 30,000 luxury properties. Hotels ranked within the top 10 percent of Best Hotels in the Caribbean, including Spice Island Beach Resort, earned a U.S. News & World Report Best Hotels Gold badge.

“We are honored and humbled to receive this honor from U.S. News & World Report, especially since it relies on feedback from our guests, the expert opinions of knowledgeable travel professionals and industry awards,” said Sir Royston Hopkin KCMG, chairman and managing director of Spice Island Beach Resort. “Our exceptional management team and phenomenal hotel employees go above and beyond for our guests, and I have to thank them for all of their hard work.”
