MIAMI – Sandals Resorts International (SRI), parent company of Sandals Resorts, Beaches Resorts and Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts, debuted its newest and most contemporary Luxury Included® resort, Sandals LaSource Grenada Resort & Spa, on December 21, 2013.  Situated on 17 acres of stunning land along the pristine Pink Gin Beach, Sandals LaSource Grenada offers guests the highest level of luxury with an unprecedented look and feel for the resort company’s portfolio. The newly opened property features Sandals’ most elaborate accommodations to date, nine global gourmet dining options with the brand’s very first steakhouse, and an expansive Wellness Center.

Boasting coral inhabited azure waters met by white-sand beaches, locals that treat visitors like house guests, and a history that that dates back to 1705, the island of Grenada is a marvelous addition to Sandals’ collection of stunning scenery and memorable experiences.  “We are thrilled to introduce our guests to another breathtaking Caribbean island, offering even more alluring destinations for a Luxury Included® Vacation,” says Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, Chairman of Sandals Resorts International. “With our enhancements of the former LaSource Resort, Sandals LaSource Grenada will exceed guests’ expectations while allowing them to enjoy the natural beauty of the Spice Island.”
