Minimalist hotel with light-filled spa to open in Grenada

by Jane Kitchen | 31 Jul 2018

A new hotel with a striking minimalist design aesthetic and a light-filled, tranquil spa will open this November on the Caribbean island of Grenada.

A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, Silversands Grenada will be located on the Grand Anse Beach and include 43 suites and nine residential villas.

With architecture and interiors by AW² – Reda Amalou and Stéphanie Ledoux – Silversands Grenada features linear architecture and design, using pale marble and light wood and a neutral colour palette of grey, blue and hues of cream.

The resort’s aesthetic blends authenticity, nature, luxury and modernity, and has been designed to showcase the sea views. Exterior spaces echo the architecture’s modern lines through gardens, courtyards and water features. Terraces, daybed areas and pools are designed to blend into the architecture.

The Silversands Spa is built around a light-filled, temperature-controlled swimming pool exclusively for use by spa guests, creating an indoor/outdoor effect with a louvred open-top ceiling. Guests can unwind and get on island time with locally inspired treatments from independent boutique brands.
