True Blue Bay Boutique Resort: A stunning hideway in Grenada
For those wanting something different from the all-inclusive resorts for which the Caribbean is well-known, True Blue is the perfect choice.
A family run hotel with a strong emphasis on sustainability, True Blue is the kind of gem you want to keep secret – but places like this don’t stay secret for long. Amenities include two pools, a yoga studio, an onsite shop and a dive centre.
Don’t miss the Blue Haven spa, which offers an All About Chocolate package, EC$350. The package includes three chocolate based treatments, and you should definitely have a pedicure – the seats have one of the most stunning views out of the sea I’ve ever seen in a spa.
Staff cannot do enough to make sure you have everything you could want, with cookery lessons and rum tasting also on offer.
Rooms are brightly decorated, and come with both an overhead fan and AC. Our room also had a kitchenette, which was perfect for chilling a beer to drink on our porch each evening.
Despite its intimate feel, there is a lot of choice, with a selection of room sizes, suites and also villas for those who want to splash out.
Food & Drink
Dodgy Dock is a highlight, with plenty of people heading to eat here who are not guests of the hotel.
The waterfront location is a beautiful place to enjoy a drink or some of the delicious Caribbean & Mexican cuisine (the hotel is owned by a Mexican and British couple – hence the central-American influences).
Live music adds to the party atmosphere three nights a week, and on Wednesday nights, don’t miss the street food style event, with local specialities available to buy from individual stalls.

The stunning infinity pool is right on a very secluded beach, making it the perfect place to while away the afternoon.
True Blue is in a vibrant part of Grenada, near to the international university, meaning if you want to explore there are plenty of bars, restaurants and clubs to try nearby.
The Final Word
Friendly staff, delicious food and a host of activities make True Blue Boutique Resort a top pick for a stay in Grenada.
From the spa to the restaurant, everything is presented with an easy Caribbean charm that allows holidaymakers to relax while knowing they are in the best hands. True Blue is the kind of special place that keeps people coming back year after year – I’m already dreaming of my return.
