Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has announced its second property in the Caribbean with the new Kimpton Kawana Bay Grenada Resort, slated to open in early 2019. The resort will be set between tropical rainforest cliffs and Grand Anse Beach, offering access to the southeastern Caribbean Sea and surrounding mountains.
Kimpton’s first Caribbean hotel, the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, just opened this past November. The new luxury hotel was the first resort development on Seven Mile Beach in roughly a decade.
Owned and developed by True Blue Development Limited, a division of the Tau Capital Group of Companies, Kimpton Kawana Bay Resort will be developed as a partial adaptive reuse with new build expansion. The 146-key resort will comprise 101 luxury studio rooms and 45 suites. 12 additional penthouse apartments will also be available for sale to private owners. A number of Kawana Bay’s suites will include private pools overlooking Grand Anse Beach, and all rooms will have ocean views. Additional amenities will include an infinity pool, chef-driven restaurant, lounge and beach bars, fitness center, spa and water sports facilities.
Scheduled flights arrive frequently into Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport, located in its capital of St. Georges, from New York, Miami, Atlanta, Toronto, Caracas, London, Frankfurt and a number of Caribbean countries, Kimpton said.
