A hidden gem in the West Indies, Mount Edgecombe Plantation Hotel, nestled above the Caribbean Sea, on the Spice and Cocoa rich island of Grenada, offers a stunning but serene barefoot luxury vacation experience.
With history going back at least as far as 1763, this totally authentic working plantation was originally growing sugar cane, but later it became a spice, cocoa and coffee plantation.
Today, as a small luxury hotel, the accommodation is surrounded by 28 acres of verdant and colourful flora, with over 40 types of spices, fruit and vegetables in abundance.
With its stunning, sheltered and elevated location on the West Coast of Grenada, this very rare and historic plantation enjoys cool sea breezes, amazing sunsets, luscious grounds and the wonderful Caribbean Sea view. The jaw dropping double infinity pools and sun deck, just have to be seen to be believed.
THE PLANTATION HOUSE itself is a self-contained and historic example of a traditional estate owner’s house of that time. Completely and beautifully restored, it compromises an entrance hall, drawing room, snooker room, study, kitchen/dining for 10, master en-suite with dressing room, together with 3 guest bedrooms with two bathrooms.
It’s most stunning feature is the extensive wrap around covered living/dining verandah offering 180 degree sea views with the tropical gardens in the foreground.
The Plantation House sleeps 8 but also has 4 additional rooms giving facilities for 16+, this would be exclusive use of the whole estate, however they can also be booked separately.
THE NUTMEG ROOMS overlook the river valley to one side and also sea views from the north porch, to yachts making their way to and from the neighbouring Grenadines. This was the original plantation spice storage house with nutmeg and cocoa drying racks (which are still in operation).
The four nutmeg rooms are Barefoot Luxury in style, and unique. Just the sounds of the birds and the tree frogs and sea breeze.
Two have four poster beds and all four have extensive sea view balconies.
THE GREAT ROOM adjoins our double infinity pools and provides the perfect dining space for meals, complete with the ‘Little Bamboo Bar’. You can relax after exploring Grenada or just enjoying the Plantation.The views and sunsets need to be enjoyed.
