Why get married in Grenada?
Grenada has a laid back charm and a slower pace to some of the busiest Caribbean Islands which makes it great for a relaxing honeymoon and ideal place for a chilled out wedding. Grand Anse Beach, with it's long stretch of white sand and lapping Caribbean sea is where some of the best hotels are located. There are superb restaurants to try including Rhodes, by Gary Rhodes, and Aquarium for delicious lobster BBQ's.
Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate scheduled flights from London Gatwick with a short touch down in Antigua on the way. And with a choice of regional add on you can fly to Gatwick from elsewhere in the UK. If you are thinking of getting married in Grenada, we recommended you book as far in advance as possible as seat availability is limited because it is a shared route with Antigua.
From the laidback luxury of Laluna, to the wonderful beachfront suites at Spice Island Beach Resort, the choice of hotels is excellent for those looking to get married in Grenada.
