Architectural plans and drawings for the new Spice Island Beach Resort, after Hurricane Ivan

(September 2004)



11 January 2005

The 66-room Spice Island Beach Resort in Grenada, one of the top luxury resorts in the Caribbean, sustained severe damage following Hurricane Ivan, and as a result, the property will be closed for one year so it can be rebuilt and reclaim its well-deserved reputation for elegant, upscale vacations.

Spice Island Beach Resort lost approximately 90 percent of its roofs as well as the main facilities including its restaurants, lounge, spa and water sports. All back of house areas have also been compromised. The conference room, main kitchen and main office remain somewhat intact. 

“We have a tough road ahead as we more extensively evaluate the situation and develop plans to rebuild Spice Island Beach Resort, but I am fortunate to have a dedicated team behind me, and we will face the challenge together,” said Sir Royston Hopkin, C.M.G, chairman and owner. 

“We will rebuild Spice Island Beach Resort into the premier luxury property on Grenada and one of the shining stars of the Caribbean,” he added. “We graciously thank all our well-wishers for their kindness and support and look forward to welcoming them and all our valued guests in the future.”

Now, they have finalized their architectural plans/drawings and demolition/construction will begin in the next three weeks, weather permitting. Shortly they will attempt to place the artist's renderings of the new resort on the resort website, so that guests and suppliers alike will have an idea as to the new design of this beautiful resort.
