Get Away to Grenada

Get Away to Grenada

Located in the eastern Caribbean Sea, the island nation of Grenada, fondly referred to as the Spice Island, entices visitors with its white sand beaches adjacent to crystal blue water, nutmeg scented breezes and locally distilled rum. This English-speaking nation with some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean offers something for every type of traveller, from the laidback lounger to the active adventurer.

With no current active COVID-19 cases on the island, Grenada is an ideal retreat for families, friends and solo travellers. The island has clearly outlined health guidelines, ensuring a safe holiday experience. Travellers visiting from most countries are required to provide a negative PCR test within 7 days of arrival. All visitors are required to book their stay at a Pure Safe Travel Accommodation, approved by the Ministry of Health and listed on the official Grenada tourism website. The protocols are under constant review and visitors should check the official website for the latest updates.

Activities on the island range from a relaxed sail on a chartered yacht to sightseeing safaris to a day spent teeing off on the greens at the Grenada Golf & Country Club. Ocean-lovers can enjoy world-class diving, sport fishing, sailing, and Seafari boat tours, while those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land can catch some sun on one of the stunning beaches, hike the lush rainforest or visit the River Antoine Rum Distillery, the the oldest functioning water-propelled distillery in the Caribbean. Grenada is also known as the Caribbean Capital of Chocolate, with four major chocolate companies on the island.

Located outside of the hurricane belt, Grenada consists of the island of Grenada itself, and two smaller islands, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. The tiny island of Carriacou is known as an excellent dive and snorkel destination with clear waters, pristine coral reefs and its premier Regatta Festival held annually in August, the longest-running in the Caribbean. With just 900 residents, most of whom derive their income from boat building and fishing, Petite Martinique boasts beautiful beaches on its calmer Western Leeward side. The island’s signature festivals include the Cultural Petite Martinique Heritage Weekend and the Whitsuntide Regatta.

One of the Grenada’s latest developments is the Six Senses La Sagesse, expected to be complete by 2022 and slated to feature one hundred luxury rooms and suites, oceanfront villas, spas, shops and watersports’ facilities. Six Senses is considered one of the world’s leading luxury hotel brands and is part of the Intercontinental Hotel Group.

“We’re excited to be developing an ultra-luxury resort that will allow guests to experience the best of this beautiful island, ” said Mohammed Asaria, Founder & Managing Director of Range Developments developers of the Six Senses La Sagesse Grenada. “Situated on a beach named as one of the best in the Caribbean, and just a 15-minute drive from Grenada’s airport, our guests will be able to start their holiday right away.”

Range Developments is the market leading investment and hospitality company, operating across the Eastern Caribbean. Projects by the resort developer have attracted over 1,600 investors and helped more than 4,000 individuals gain second citizenship so far via its Citizenship by Investment programme. Range Developments is the only company that has a track record of delivery in the Citizenship by Investment sector with multiple completed projects.

By investing US $220,000, plus associated government fees in the government-approved Six Senses La Sagesse real estate project developed by Range Developments, investors and their families (subject to completion of satisfactory due diligence) are granted dual citizenship in a 3 month period without the need to visit or reside on the island. In addition to visa free travel to 140 countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, the Schengen Region, Russia, China and many others, Citizenship of Grenada also permits the investor to make an investment (suggested minimum amount is US $150,000) in the United States in exchange for residency (under the E2 visa program).
