The air genuinely smells of nutmeg on the spice island. But choosing to visit this tri-island nation, which also includes Carriacou and Petite Martinique, really comes down to numbers. How does 40 beaches, 30 dive sites, 15 waterfalls, five chocolate factories and three rum distilleries sound? With rainbow-colored villas and an abundance of Caribbean rum, these are the best hotels in Grenada for all budgets.

Rosa Guesthouse, Hillsborough, Carriacou

Drink lovers should head to Carriacou, the largest island in the Grenada Grenadines. Though just 12sqmi (31sqkm), and home to 8,000 people, you’ll find more than 100 rum shops. Stop and play dominoes, order some chicken or fried catch of the day and catch up on the local gossip. You’ll find Rosa’s – a simple but spotless guesthouse with bright yellow, blue and pink rooms – opposite the Paradise Beach in the main town of Hillsborough. Cater for yourself using the fully-equipped kitchen.

Owned and run by Sir Royston Hopkin and his family, this resort tends to attract families and an older crowd; the luxury all-inclusive hotel is located at the quieter, southern end of the famous Grand Anse Beach. When treating yourself, it’s best to go all in. Treatments at Janissa’s Spa sound good enough to eat. Facials, massages and wraps use the organic Grenadian chocolate, nutmeg, seaweed and coconut among other locally sourced tinctures. An added perk? All rooms are equipped with a voice-activated Alexa.

Located on a quiet residential peninsula in the south, 473 is centered on stylish simplicity. English owner Mark Solomon has gone for low-key luxury for this waterfront collection of eight villas, which feature chic bamboo-framed mirrors, rattan furniture, expansive windows and lofty rafters, while some also have outdoor kitchens and showers. There’s no bar or restaurant here. Instead villas have full kitchens. Feeling lazy? Book a private chef to your villa, or a poolside private dining experience.

Follow the hiking trails that lead across the headlands of this secluded horseshoe-shaped bay, to find your own private snorkeling spot. The beach at la Sagesse still feels wild, with its salt pond fringed with mangroves, and crooked fringe of palms. But still, all rooms at this boutique hotel are within just 30ft (9m) of the beach. With no TVs, radios or phones in the room, rest is a priority. Dishes at the beachside restaurant use only locally caught seafood and produce grown in the nearby rainforest.

    The view over town and out to sea from the swimming pool at Casabella is one of the key draws of a stay here. The seven rooms are definitely homely and comfortably traditional, with cheery colors and floral furnishings.
