Silversands Hotel – Grenada’s First 5-Star Resort Now Open


Grenada’s newest addition to the hospitality industry, the luxurious Silversands Hotel officially went into full operation on Saturday, December 1st 2018.

The $120M high-end beach front resort, owned by Egyptian multi-millionaire Naguib Sawiris welcomed its first paying guest signaling the commencement of business operation and what many described as a major boost to the Grenada tourism landscape.

According to Naguib Sawiris, the billionaire Egyptian businessman who has spent the past three years developing the resort—the first to open on the island in a quarter century – “You feel good here. It’s that simple. Silversands hotel and private villas are an expression of the love I feel for this island.”         

Addressing Government officials, business partners and special invitees at a soft opening of the facility last Friday, owner of the facility Sawiris said being able to open the facility after the commencement of construction, was one of the happiest days of his life, considering the fact that when he first arrived on the island, he had absolutely no plans to do so.

Sawiris’ five minutes address, put to rest fears over the issues of Camerhogne Park being purchase by him, or for that matter anything that appears to run into conflict with the Grenadian people, according to him, once the people are not happy, he said bring it to his attention he will deal with it the following day. The business also brushes aside claims that the hotel would be private and caters for a particular group of people.

Announcing his intention to remain in Grenada for the long hall, Sawiris 2019 would see the commandment of two new hotels; land for which he said has already being purchased. He further noted that at the conclusion of his plans for Grenada, he would be boosting the room’s stock level in the tourism industry by thirty percent and providing jobs for a number of Grenadians.

Also present at last Friday’s soft opening was Prime Minister Dr. Hon. Keith Mitchell, in his short address to those present, welcomed the Silversands family to Grenada, in reminiscing on the process of getting the facility into Grenada Prime Minister Mitchell called on the Grenadian community to see the level of investment as a plus for Grenada – one that has the ability to boost the country’s image and rally in support rather that casting doubt.

Though Silversands Grenada, a Leading Hotels of the World property, is the island’s first modern luxury property, it has carefully tapped into the island’s unique atmosphere and traditions – giving guests a chance to discover Grenada like a local. Using its 43 spacious suites (there are also nine hillside and beachfront villas available for purchase) as a home base, guests will have the opportunity to experience the rare and unexpected at every turn. They can spend days on private excursions into the surrounding jungles, spice fields, or exploring the island’s long history by meandering through the red-roofed colonial houses of nearby St. George with an expert guide.

Of course, there are plenty of reasons to simply stay put as well: the property’s two-mile stretch of Grand Anse beach and 100-meter infinity-edge beachfront pool being the most tempting. The full-service spa, restaurants that highlight local flavors (and blend them into compelling Thai fusions), and tucked-away bars help too. And though the property, with its airy architecture and mid-century inspired decor is undeniably chic it is not designed as a place to see and be seen. Instead it—and Grenada as a whole—is a place to be and let be.
