Grenada Island, Caribbean

" "

As expected for a Caribbean Island, Grenada is surrounded by the turquoise ocean and touched by warm ocean breezes. Located in Morne Rouge on the southern tip of Grenada, Laluna Estate is an amazing place and it has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Conde’ Nast Traveler, Marie Claire and In Style magazines for its appeal. Laluna Resort is the perfect place where guests can enjoy a unique slice of Caribbean life with Italian influence in a perfectly intimate atmosphere.

Grenada may bring to mind the island's invasion before anything else, but it seems unfair, as the tiny island of Grenada is one of the most scenic locations in the Caribbean. The spirit of the people is strong and alive, despite the violence laced throughout Grenada history. Not only human vs human, but human versus nature – Hurricane Ivan was just the latest obstacle facing the island. Previous to the intervention of American soldiers during the invasion of Grenada, there were several bloody battles over this tiny island. The original Carib inhabitants were first defeated by the French, but rather than concede to their subjugators, the fierce warriors through themselves of the Northern cliffs of the island. The French later gave way to the British in 1783, which began a long chapter of peace in Grenada history – a period eventually ended with the invasion of Grenada.
