Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the addition of Mount Cinnamon Resort Hotel and Beach Club in Grenada to its exchange network. Recognized by London’s Sunday Times Travel Magazine as one of the “100 Best Hotels in the World” in 2010, the spectacular property is nestled on a hillside overlooking Grand Anse Beach in the southwest section of the island, just 20 minutes from the capital of St. George’s.
Mount Cinnamon was created by Peter de Savary, an international entrepreneur and philanthropist, who has been actively involved in the hospitality and leisure industry for more than three decades. De Savary noted, “Grenada has been my second home for many years and I am thrilled to bring shared ownership to the island and set the bar for the industry with such an exceptional resort.”
“We’re extremely pleased to welcome such a high-caliber property to our quality vacation exchange network,” said Bryan Ten Broek, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development. “Peter is a well-known leader in developing luxury properties catering to affluent consumers. This project represents an exciting step forward for the destination in terms of diversifying its tourism offering.”
The villas and suites range from one- to three-bedrooms and offer scenic views of crystal-clear waters and acres of tropical gardens. All have a fresh contemporary décor, spacious living rooms, fully equipped kitchens, flat screen TVs with surround sound, complimentary WiFi Internet access, and expansive terraces and balconies.
Among the many on-site amenities and services at the property are Savvy’s Restaurant and poolside bar, outdoor pool, private beach club with cabanas, state-of-the-art fitness facility, beach side and indoor air-conditioned spa, tennis, children’s club, yoga center, and concierge desk. Guests also can take advantage of a wide range of activities and attractions available at the resort or nearby, including volleyball, tennis, scuba diving school, sailing, bill-fishing, guided hiking and plantation tours, and boat excursions.
The most southerly of the Windward Islands in the Caribbean, Grenada has 133 square miles of largely untouched coastline and mountainous rain forests studded with waterfalls and rivers. As a result of its location close the equator, its climate is agreeable 52 weeks of the year.
