Sandals LaSource Grenada is part of the Sandals concept of the all-inclusive holiday redefined, where you can expect only the best quality in food, drink and activities. The all-inclusive Caribbean resorts are specifically designed for romance – you can do as little or as much as you like with your time here. Sandals also offers a Butler Service, only available in their very highest level of suites. It’s the supreme standard of service and luxury, where your every need is anticipated, often before you’ve even voiced it. The butler is trained by the Guild of Professional English Butlers, which provides butlers to nobility worldwide. Each Butler Suite comes with a Butler Phone, so you can ring and ask for anything you fancy, such as pizza by the pool or ice cream on the beach. From drawing a rose-petaled candlelit bath to pressing your wardrobe, whatever your whims, the butler is there to make sure every moment of your stay is beyond flawless. Genius.
There’s 225 rooms and suites, which include 69 professional butlers suites, and many of them have their own private swimming pools in the rooms. There’s also outside baths in all South Seas and Italian Village rooms, which is absolutely heavenly. If you’re looking to get fit, there’s a state-of-the-art fitness centre and spa, 3 freshwater swimming pools and 2 river pools, as well as the incredible ocean just by your room. There’s 3 villages you can stay in – Pink Gin, South Seas, and Italian Village. The resort really is premium – from unlimited premium brand drinks, to magnificent Skypool Suites, free WiFi and 10 restaurants to choose from, you’re guaranteed to be spoiled for choice.
For true luxury, try their SkyPool Butler Suites. Imagine opening your bedroom doors to reveal an infinity plunge pool, which blends with the horizon. Each suite comes with a Tranquility Soaking Tub for couples, too. Heaven. The Italian Oceanview Suite is perched atop the Italian Village, with a full living room with butler pantry, wet bar, indoor dining table, plush sofa and chairs, and Smart TV. It’s totally beautiful – think a bathroom of Carrera marble vanities with backlit mirrors, Kohler claw footed tub, separate frosted glass shower and a frosted glass water closet.
The bedroom opens for access to a heated private plunge pool with an infinity edge. The South Seas Grande Rondoval Butler Suite is also incredible – the flooring is a mixture of ivory patika and porcelain planks with pebble and coral stone. The bathroom boasts a large soaking tub carved out of solid stone, his and hers vanities with backlit mirrors. The large patio has a hot tub with waterfall, infinity edge plunge pool and wet lounging area. You can access the pool from the bedroom. Need we say more.
