The guestrooms feature unique contemporary Caribbean furnishings, with mother of pearl and mosaic features, a West Indian color palette and clean lines, a private balcony or terrace, and island or ocean views. Room amenities include a 42-in. flat-panel television with expanded cable channels, an in-room digital safe, a leisure chair and ottoman, a work desk with ergonomic chair, an iHome alarm clock radio and complimentary WiFi access throughout the property.
The resort also offers an on-site beachfront fitness center, an outdoor kids and adult swimming pool, meeting space to accommodate up to 400 people and an authentic Caribbean restaurant and bar, situated directly over the ocean waters.
The property is located in a marine reserve and features a historic Victorian Pier that is 200 ft. long and recently declared a United Nations World Heritage site.
Grand Hotel Limited owns the hotel. Christopher Forbes is its general manager.
