Many of our guests come to Petite Anse on a romantic break in Grenada. Sometimes they’re on a honeymoon or celebrating a wedding anniversary. Others are on a getaway with the sole purpose of reconnecting.
Grenada is an excellent island for romance that offers a peaceful and beautiful escape from a busy life. When we first came across the location where Petite Anse now stands, we could even feel the romance. (You can read more about this time and building the hotel here).
Romantic things to do in Grenada
There are many ways to enjoy the romance of the moment in Grenada. You might want to take a walk on the beach together with a glass of champagne. Otherwise, you could enjoy a boat trip to Sandy Island with a picnic for two.
Alternatively, you could choose another romantic activity such as:
• A tour of a chocolate farm and factory
• A boat trip with a picnic to Sandy Island
• Turtle watching by moonlight
• Hiking in the Grand Etang rainforest
• Sulphur mud bath
We also provide a rum tasting session for those who want to sample the broad range of rums that the Caribbean and Grenada has to offer.
Enjoy the romance of the local culture
Enjoying the culture of the Spice Isle together is also possible with a Friday evening trip to the local village of Gouyave. The weekly ‘Fish Friday’ event is a chance for the residents of Grenada and tourists alike to wind down. This is an event that will definitely be something special to add to the itinerary of your romantic break in Grenada.
Here you’ll find a wide range of fish-based street food such as:
• Conch / “Lambie”
• Fried breadfruit
• Fried fish
• Fry bakes
You might want to mix up some of these other activities with getting some relaxation. Soak up the sun by the pool with a book in one hand and a cocktail in the other.
Chocolate is ALWAYS romantic
Who doesn’t love the fact that chocolate doesn’t only taste good but it’s a mood improver, a stress reducer and is good for the body? It also feels so good as it melts in the mouth and is one of the most romantic foods known to man (and woman!)!
To get you in the mood for chocolate, you can read about how to make cacao tea and facts about chocolate here.
Grenada is within the zone that is 20 degrees either side of the equator where cacao trees can grow. Cacao is the fruit that is at the core of all cocoa and chocolate products. There are 3.5 million cocoa farms within the cacao zone. With most located in Africa, that’s where 70% of the world’s cacao is produced.
Cacao beans grow in melon shaped pods. Harvested by hand, inside each pod there are between 20 and 40 individual seeds and they are one of the oldest foods on the planet.
Grenada has a couple of chocolate farms that also manufacture chocolate. We offer a tour of the Crayfish Estate, which you can read about here. You can learn how chocolate is made and even take some home with you. This outing and the chocolate will add something memorable to your romantic break in Grenada.
Who knew a mud bath could be so romantic
The sulphur springs are located just 7 miles from the hotel. We can arrange for Richie or another tour guide to take you there or you can use one of our car hire options. You can find out about our tours here. There are many tours of which at least one or two will add to your your romantic break in Grenada itinerary.
The sulphur mud is incredibly beneficial for the skin and is said to take years off your face when applied (we must go there more often!! ) Wear swimming gear to get the most value from your visit.
Take a boat trip on your romantic break in Grenada
Whether you want to head out to Sandy Island or take a quick spin around other local islands, we can arrange this for you. We’ll pack up a picnic for you, and you’ll travel on a boat for 25 minutes to one of the most beautiful islands ever.
The location for Bounty chocolate bar television ads will stay in your memory forever. It’s the ideal location for marriage proposals. There’s excellent snorkelling, and the sea has excellent clarity.
You’ll enjoy a BBQ fish lunch and will return to the hotel after a couple of hours of relaxing on the beach or exploring the island. The choice is yours. Here’s more information.

Petite Anse is a romantic hotel in Grenada
As a boutique style hotel with just 11 cottages and two honeymoon suites, we want you to experience something a little bit exclusive and elusive. Most of our guests leave us reviews about how they’ve enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel. Our staff are friendly and welcoming, and there’s an extended family feeling – which you can join in with or stay on your own romantic journey together as a couple.
Whatever your choice, the hotel is perfect for couples who want to unwind and get away from modern life. It’s a place to both slow down and reconnect with each other. Take a look at some of our reviews here.
We’re also known for our excellent food, in particular, our dinners. Much of the produce we use grows in our gardens, and we source the rest from trusted local growers when possible. Locally caught fresh fish and seasonal lobster are popular menu choices.
If you have specific dietary needs, our chefs will be able to cater for you. The chef will probably even come and have a chat with you about your personal preferences. Most of our guests are pleasantly surprised at this level of service and opt to take our all-inclusive option.
In summary, Grenada offers much to the romantic couple. It’s well worth a visit and most of our guests are those who’ve recognised the opportunities that the island offers to spend quality time together. Isn’t it time you took a romantic break in Grenada?
