The Calabash is proud to have been owned and managed by the Garbutt family since 1987. Today’s world-class resort has 30 suites and five estate homes in which to rent. The suites all come with air conditioning and ceiling fans, full bathrooms with Elemis products, hair dryer, towels and bathrobes, free Wi-Fi, fully stocked mini-bar and tea and coffee making facilities, safe and a balcony or patio where breakfast is served in your own, personal outdoor space.
For other meals, there is the Rhodes Restaurant and the Beach Club. For age appropriate, there is a full-service onsite spa with a plethora of treatments and yoga services.
Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa has so many onsite activities for families, including water sports. Guests can even arrange a trip to the underwater sculpture park from the hotel, as they have a dive and snorkel shop onsite. Tennis, sailing, yoga, beach combing-it’s all available at the resort.

The Calabash has become a home away from home. The entire staff is top notch. They anticipate every need and service is always with a smile. We already have our next trip to Grenada planned, and of course we are staying at the Calabash!
From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel truly welcome and special!
Where else do you have a manager and six staff members meet & greet you upon arrival?
During our 7 day visit, we were in a Junior Suite with a great view of the water ... spacious and calming with every amenity ... The Calabash has a high-end, classy feel to it … very comfortable and maintained to the highest standards ... Staff are first class, all those we met had a great attitude.
We had the all-inclusive package. One could make the argument that “all-inclusive” isn’t necessarily the best value. But never having to pull out the wallet nor having to sign something is what a vacation should be. The same approach we take when choosing a cruise-line (Regent, Seabourn).
Prior to our stay at the Calabash, my wife and I have traveled to every island in the Caribbean, from Tobago to the Bahamas, and everything in-between, with the exception of Cuba and Grenada. Every Caribbean island has something beautiful and unique … but Grenada and its people were very special.
Take advantage of their arrival & departure services. Greeted with a rum punch, you by-pass the masses & lines by having a designated customs/immigration officer. You email pics of your baggage to the Calabash and your luggage and driver will be waiting upon clearing customs.
Special kudos to Racquel, the hotel reservation specialist … extremely helpful in arranging our trip and always promptly answering all our email questions.
We shall return!
