Ever since we decided to create a peaceful and romantic haven of a hotel in Grenada, where guests could enjoy the magnificent view of the Grenadines we were inspired by the goal of being both an environmentally and socially conscious hotel. Thankfully, we’ve been able to contribute to both the care of the environment and of the community during our time in Grenada.
We want to share with you the type of activities and practices that we implement to ensure that we make a difference to both the natural habitat of St Patrick (the parish where we are located in Grenada) and the people.
Environmentally conscious activities
To start, let’s explore the green practices that we implement. These same practices have contributed to us attaining TripAdvisor’s coveted Green Leaders Gold award:
Re-use and reduce. We guide our guests to re-use towels when possible, for which you may have seen recommendations in the rooms. We do this by asking our guests to place towels that they want to be washed on the floor, otherwise to place them back on the towel rails. We also collect vegetable scraps from the kitchen to add to our compost heap. When possible, we save any scraps to feed to our domesticated animals. We also work hard to reduce all use of resources.
Energy. We track energy usage on a regular basis and continually look at how we can make best use of solar energy. We have installed solar panels on the roofs of several cottages to capture the abundance of sunrays that are available to us in this part of the world. In addition, our light bulbs are energy efficient and from a commercial aspect, it helps with our energy bills.
Recycling. Where we can we reuse materials, we do. We also use bamboo straws so as not to contribute to the shocking plastic problem that the planet is currently being suffocated by. This is particularly critical in this region as there are leatherback turtles and other sea life that plastic can affect the well-being of. We also reuse water when possible, such as capturing what is known as grey water for use on plants and lawns.
Green focused education. Both staff and guests are educated about our green practices, either on-site or through our website. You can see more about this here.
Local produce. In addition to growing as much as our own food as we can, we source our remaining fresh produce needs from local and trusted growers. This means that we don’t have to travel a distance to source food and therefore we produce fewer fuel emissions.
Local resources. Our cottages are made of hardwood sourced from the Caribbean. Philip travelled to Guyana before building started in 2007 and since then we’ve also added to the hardwood door frames, window frames, roofing and other hardware with hand-crafted hardwood furniture.
Turtles. Having had a lifelong respect and love for sea life, we have partnered with and support the work of Ocean Spirits sea turtle conservation program. Click to discover more about Ocean Spirits.
From our recycling of galvanise (corrugated iron) to the recycling of local vegetation for the roofing of our gazebo, we put the environment first.
Socially conscious activities
Staff. Petite Anse Hotel is proud to make a financial difference to the local community. We do this by hiring workers from the local area. This began when we first took ownership of the land and it needed to be prepared. All workers were hired from the population of Sauteurs (our local town) and neighbouring towns. Our hotel staff are also from the local area and they pass through a training and development program to ensure that they are employable outside of the hotel.
In the community
Community projects. The hotel makes financial contributions to local community projects. This includes Philip’s epic fundraising for the replacement of the roof of the local Hilarion home for the vulnerable. He raised a whopping US$17,000 by running 26 gruelling miles of the London marathon for sponsorship and by requesting donations. Annie also voluntarily sits on the board of the Hilarion home directors.
Other contributions made by Petite Anse Hotel include sponsorship of the local steel pan orchestra. We also took on the sponsorship of a local culinary student we met during the time he spent with us at the hotel doing his work experience until he successfully graduated.
Annie collects donations and runs a packing for a purpose campaign that accepts essentials for the local special needs school and other schools. Discover more about this here. Until the unfortunate closure of Father Mallaghan’s Boys’ Home, Annie was tirelessly involved in the social development of many of the residents and still provides support to them. She often receives packages from guests and others who collect to make a difference to the local people who at times have financial difficulties. This part of the island is not bustling with economic growth and this makes a difference for people to receive clothing, school supplies, etc.
Veterinary assistance. Animal owners in the community will often call Annie to help with their care. When she was living in the UK, Annie was a nurse and has had her full quota of medical training. She also has close ties with the veterinary practices on the island and receives some vet medicine donations from her friends and acquaintances in England. She can often be found giving pigs, sheep, goats, donkeys, dogs and cats veterinary treatments and inoculations.
Attach A Leg. As a non-profit organisation, Attach a Leg provides prosthetic legs to amputees. Petite Anse is looking into how else they can support the organisation and you can read more about them here.
Quite often the hotel will also make donations to those in need, at our own discretion. We cannot help everybody but do try to help as many as we can. We enjoy making a difference and feel that both ourselves and as an organisation- the hotel, has been very fortunate in being able to orchestrate making a difference both socially and environmentally in the parish of St Patricks.

If you’re considering getting married in Grenada, then you may want to add us to your shortlist.
As a hotel that is exceedingly interested in our guests having a wonderfully memorable time on their special day, we thought we’d put something together on what it’s like to get married at Petite Anse Hotel.
Our guests are very important to us. We aren’t the same as the big hotels and are keen on you having a bespoke wedding that is designed to suit you and your loved one.
We also like to ensure that we provide what you’re looking for when it comes to all the right touches for your special day. After all, the wedding day is such an important part of the couple’s love story – we like to get it right and make it a time to remember and treasure forever.
So that you can see for yourself what people have said about getting married at Petite Anse, we’ve chosen a random collection of some of the testimonials left by guests on TripAdvisor.
You can access all the reviews for weddings by clicking here.
A wedding that is perfect for you
Your wedding day is your special day and we are very flexible. You can choose everything to suit your preferences. This includes where you’d like to get married and who by. We offer access to a number of officials of differing faiths. You can also choose what happens, what is said and when you get married.
Weddings that we’ve held in the past have all been very different. For example, some of our couples have chosen to get married on the beach with an audience of 40, whereas others have opted for just the two of them under our wedding arch.
When it comes to catering, we can offer you everything from canapes to champagne to a four-tiered wedding cake. For the latter, we do require some notice. We can also supply fresh flowers and a beautiful bouquet using flowers of your preferred colours (subject to availability) which are available as part of your wedding package.
Paperwork for getting married in Grenada
With regards to paperwork, we can also help to organise this. You will need to take a trip down to St George’s (the capital city) to make the arrangement. We can suggest and make an appointment for you to get married by the minister of your choice. Annie (your wedding planner) is also qualified to marry you if you wish. It really is up to you.
In addition, we can organise a professional photographer to take your official wedding photos. If you need bridesmaids, page boys or even a steel pan band to make your day just right, just ask. Read more about what you officially need to get married in Grenada here.
Wedding day ideas
Some ideas that you may want to consider are:
- Get married in a heart-shaped arrangement of shells on the beach as the waves gently kiss the shoreline.
- Tie the knot on our terrace. You’ll have the wonderful view of the Caribbean Sea and the Grenadine islands as your backdrop. Fantastic images!
- Transform your trip into a marriage and a honeymoon – you just need to be here for three days to conform to the requirements of Government of Grenada. You’ll just need to bring the relevant documents with you.

Here at Petite Anse, we get asked a lot of questions by guests and visitors about what we offer. We thought we’d put the most popular ones down on ‘paper’ for you to get some answers and so that you can understand more about what it’s like to stay at Petite Anse and what you can expect.
So here goes. These are the most common questions that we get asked:
1. How much is your day pass?
Our day pass is EC$175 per person and includes breakfast, lunch and drinks (up to EC$55). You’ll also have free range of the pool and the beach. You can start your day at 8 am with a full English or American breakfast or even a local breakfast. Then enjoy the morning lounging poolside. Order drinks when you want them and then ponder the lunch menu.
Pay EC$275, and you’ll also be able to enjoy the use of one of our rooms for the day.
Please note that the menu options of neither steak nor lobster are included in this price.
2. How far are you from the airport?
We are located around 75 minutes’ drive from the airport. Yes, it’s a bit of a distance, but when you reach this end of the island, you’ll see for yourself why our guests happily make the journey. The air is fresh, usually with a breeze and it would be a rare thing to see a traffic jam. The people are warm and welcoming, and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. The view is also one of the best you can get on Grenada. We may be biased but you can judge that for yourself when you arrive.
3. How far is the nearest town?
The nearest town to Petite Anse is Sauteurs. Located just 2 miles away, it’s the perfect walk to get some exercise. Otherwise, we are happy to drive you up there. You can buy snacks, gifts for those back home or just experience life in a typical Caribbean town.
Recommended gifts include:
• Nutmeg syrup
• Guava jelly or jam
• Local rums
• Bay leaf ointment
4. Are there any hiking trails in the area?
There are many, and we have the information that you need to enjoy them. You can choose the length and how challenging it is. Also, we also offer a Sunday morning hike when guests can walk to the next village to the south, Duquesne. Quite often residents including expats will join the walk and provide fascinating information on the flora and fauna you’ll see along the way.
5. Is the beach safe to swim?
There are times when the beach is safe to swim, and there are times when it isn’t. There is not a lifeguard on duty, so the decision will be yours to make at the time. On occasion, the sea is very gentle, but we do usually have a powerful onshore breeze which tends to make the water choppy, and on occasion, it has large waves. We always tell guests that our beach is wild, and the waters here are the same. However, if the sea isn’t for you, then our pool is very tame!
6. Can we get from Sauteurs to Carriacou?
Currently, the answer is no. There is not a ferry travelling from Sauteurs to Cariaccou. However, in the future, this looks like something that may be available. Watch this space.
If you’ve got any of your own questions for us, then let us know. We’re here to help and are happy to do so.

When you lead a busy daily life, it can be easy to dream of holidays where you can relax all day and night, whilst soaking up the rays of the sun on a hot beach. Sometimes, this dream can become a reality, which means you will have lots of excitement brewing before the day your holiday arrives. Despite such relaxing surroundings, stress can find a way to creep into your holiday and cause stress where you don’t need it. Though it can be a hard mindset to break out of, there are numerous ways you can have the ultimate relaxing beach holiday that will have you wishing you could never leave.
For many people, the opportunity to have a beach holiday is one that comes about once in a lifetime, rather than every year. If this is the case, it is only right that you upgrade your holiday ideals to luxury. On a luxury holiday, you can find all-inclusive options and amazing benefits which seek to make your experience as relaxing as possible. Although it will be more expensive, you can find many deals online which offer luxury trips for a fraction of the price, and you can follow handy saving tips to help you go. It is also the best way to invoke a feeling of total bliss as you stretch out on the private beach of your hotel and make the most of fine dining and comfortable beds.
Spend time in nature
Sandy beaches are one of nature’s most precious gifts, but it can be easy to overlook the natural beauty of them when your intention is to stare through sunglasses up at the blue sky. Though you may be spending most of your days on the beach, it is wise to take it a step further by taking one evening to camp there. From your campsite, you will be able to catch sight of the stars in ways you haven’t before, and you can also add a new dimension to the meaning of a beach trip. The trick to keeping your expedition relaxing is to ensure you have the right equipment with you, and that you don’t camp too close to the water’s edge, where you could get swept away by the tide. For more help finding what you need, shop here.
Before you go on holiday, it is easy to start planning all the fun activities you hope to do when you are at your beach location. Although some of these will be a must, planning too much can take away some of the time you are meant to have relaxing. The key is to plan for a few activities that you have only ever dreamed of doing, such as surfing or parasailing, but leaving the rest of your time open. This leaves room for you to enjoy your beach holiday as you wish, without the pressure to stay busy. Leaving such room open also allows you to be spontaneous and follow how you feel when you wake up each morning.

Raise your hand if you’re somebody who loves a bit of romance. Romance isn’t just something that ‘girls’ like. Research says that men are more romantic than females. It if wasn’t for romance, then most of us wouldn’t even be alive! It’s also an essential ingredient of a healthy relationship.

So what do you need to know about being a couple of lovebirds whilst you’re staying with us here in Grenada?
How to be romantic at Petite Anse Hotel
Here are a few ideas for you:
Romance at the breakfast table. It’s not every day that you get to eat breakfast together. In fact, doing so can be surprisingly romantic. You get to spend quality time, looking at each other, and even holding hands if you want to. You can even have the exact same breakfast so that your breakfast experience is one, it’s in unity. You’re both eating the same food.
Sitting on your terrace. Tea, drinks or just chatting. You’ll have a great view. You’ll have peace and quiet and there’s nowhere to go by any particular time of day. Of course, there is dinner to get to, but by then you’ll probably have tired of sitting on the terrace and be ready to do something else by then.
Drinks at the bar. Chat with the bar people. Andre is particularly engaging to chat with. He will keep you entertained, intrigued and he has a broad knowledge of the local area, Caribbean rums and Grenadian and local history. You can even banter with him. As you do so, you’ll also be reacquainted with the sense of humour of your loved one. Who knew they could be so funny and it’s been a while since you spent such a relaxed and unpressured time with them that you’d forgotten.
Dinner for two. The ultimate pastime of those getting to know each other or reacquainting again is dinner for two. You can sit on the terrace and whisper sweet nothings as you enjoy our spectacular view, or you can sit in our dining room.
Romantic walk. Holding hands as you approach the top of our driveway, you can turn right to head down to David Beach for a very pleasant walk past papaya trees, cocoa trees, and past quaint houses. If you opt to turn left you can head into Sauteurs, do some shopping and even stop off at the little rum bar next to the fishery. Your choice, but we recommend that plenty of hand-holding goes on. Every Sunday morning we host a group walk to the local village.
Early to bed and a lay in. Yes, why not have both. It’s not something that you can always do at home as time flies when you’re at home. In fact, by the time you get to the end of your stay with us, you’ll feel like time has flown by. But during your time with us, you can slow it down by making the best of the hours that you have.
Swimming. Whether you swim in the sea or in the pool, it’s romantic. Romance is just the two of you doing something that you don’t usually get the time to do. It’s enjoying the laughs, the smiles, the shared experience of doing an activity together.
Here are a few other ideas about how to be romantic whether you’re staying with us or not.

Family vacations are something that many households look forward to every year. From the moment schools break up for the vacations, families flock to the airports in the hopes of escaping the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. While this can be a stressful time, it is also one full of opportunity, where you can introduce your children to parts of the world they will have never seen before. It is the perfect chance to spend some quality time together in a beautiful place, so to make sure you get it right, you can follow some top tips which will make your trip one to remember for all the right reasons.
Choose a great location
When you are going on a family vacation, you will need to go to a location which suits everyone. It could mean going on a camping trip nearby, but most families choose to go to beachside locations, where they can spend their days soaking up the sun and enjoying the abundance of activities on offer. Depending on where you go, there are some places which cater to families of all ages and can give adults time to relax when their kids are having fun. It could be that you choose to go somewhere quieter and away from the crowds so that you can make your own fun.
Do lots of activities
There will be lots of excitement among your kids about what they can enjoy as soon as they touch down in their vacation location. In fact, it is likely that this trip is your only trip for the whole year, so it is wise to make the most of your location by participating in lots of activities. If you are heading to the beach, you can enjoy pastimes like surfing, swimming, and even beach sports like volleyball. Filling your days with such fun allows you to relax in the evening, where your kids can rest for the days to come.
Always hire a car
Even if you choose a great place filled with activities, there will likely be lots outside your vacation bubble that you should take the time to explore. Often, these places can’t be seen unless you hire a car. Although you may have chosen to drive to your hotel, most people choose to fly and rent a car when they step off the plane. If you’re on vacation in the US, you can save money and get the safest car by looking online, click to find out more. If you’re in Grenada, you may want to hire one of our cars.
Make time for yourself
When you are on a family trip, it is easy to put all your time into your kids and making sure they have fun, but you must remember that this is also a vacation for you and that you will need some time to relax. These times often come in the evening when the kids will be tucked away in their rooms. When this happens, make the most of your surroundings and indulge in the quiet you may not always get to enjoy at home.
