What is something unique about the new Sandals LaSource?
The beauty of Sandals LaSource is unmatched and reveals its charm with the Caribbean Sea to one side and the Atlantic Ocean to the other. Sitting in the most majestic valley, the offerings here, both indoor and outdoor, will continually lead guests from one wonder to another; from the gorgeous Pink Gin beach and magnificent view of the St George’s capital, to the beautifully appointed rooms and suites.
What authentic local experiences will guests have access to?
The history of Grenada is unique and interesting. At Sandals LaSource, we will incorporate the island’s remarkable beauty and history into our entertainment programs and gourmet restaurants in order to give our guests an authentic taste of Grenadian culture and cuisine. There is so much to see and do in Grenada and we will ensure our guests get a true experience.
Speaking about the cuisine, tell us a little about Grenadian cuisine.
Well, most people know Grenada as the “Island of Spice.” It almost has a literal meaning, as there are more spices in Grenada per square mile than any other place in the world! Cloves, cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, cocoa, and more grow in abundance here, but nutmeg is the country’s biggest export and most popular spice. Grenada’s national dish, Oildown, is a medley of the island’s best seasonings and flavors, including fresh coconut milk, dumplings, chicken (or meat of choice), onions, dasheen, celery, chive, thyme, turmeric, and breadfruit. So delicious!
What are some amazing things that guests can experience at Sandals LaSource?
As with most Sandals Resorts, guests will experience award-winning hospitality, gourmet restaurants, the best infinity pool and other amenities, beautiful rooms and suites, a magnificent beach, and all the luxury-included excellence Sandals Resorts offers. But guests can also have one-of-a-kind experiences amid Grenada’s vast landscape including visits to the nearby ports and marinas, shopping experiences, and leisure activities that let guests explore the wonders of this island.
Do you have a philosophy for the new resort?
Yes. Our philosophy can be summarized in three words: historical, beautiful, and emotional. These words refer to the majestic, Grenadian landscape and our focus on the best, dedicated service, which turns a simple trip into an experience of a lifetime.
What do you think will make Sandals LaSource unforgettable? What will guests rave about to their friends and family?

What is something interesting you found out about the island or the people since you arrived?
The rich and unique history of the island, natural beauty, lakes, rivers and waterfalls that spread throughout the island is simply amazing and leaves you totally relaxed and rejuvenated. Grenadians are naturally warm and friendly and always willing and eager to answer questions or lend a hand.
