About Petite Anse Hotel
Husband and wife Philip and Annie Clift are an adventurous, industrious and determined partnership.
They met over a game of squash in 1980 and were both amazed at their good fortune. Now the owners and operators of a romantic boutique hotel in Grenada with their pets and a donkey, they are firm believers in life being meant for good friends and great adventures.
The eldest of his siblings, Philip was born on a hop farm in Worcestershire and attended agricultural college in Cirencester.
After college, he took over the family farm that produced more than 44 million pints of beer per year.
In 1995, the family farm was sold and Philip scooped up Annie and they sailed across the Atlantic on a new adventure. After spending 10 happy years sailing around the Caribbean, they couldn’t help but dream about living on land. It was the Spice Isle of Grenada that had that magical appeal that they were looking for.
Philip is a man of many talents and interests, some of which are reflected in his having designed and built the hotel from the ground up.
Annie is a friendly, welcoming hotel-mother from Gloucestershire. She is a trained nurse, animal carer, fundraiser and touches the hearts of all our guests. Annie has a passion for the local community and can often be found at the local special needs school, treating local livestock and domesticated animals and ensuring that all guests ahve the best possible time during their stay.
In 2006, Annie and Philip identified the land for the hotel and started building. They couldn’t believe that they had found such a wonderful spot with spectacular views to share with people from all over the world. The couple married in 2008 at their plantation house home in Grenada.
What else do they do in Grenada?
Philip has a keen interest in keeping fit and has taken part in a number of marathons and triathlons across the Caribbean stacking up some great results. He more recently ran the London Marathon to raise funds for the replacement of the roof of the local community home. Most Saturdays you can find Philip taking part in the regular Hash House Harriers event in Grenada. If you are interested, you can join him too.
Annie is known in the region for providing support to the local home, the Hilarion Leonard Cheshire and local schools. In addition to looking after Darius and Darcy, Annie attends the local church each Sunday and if you wish, will take you along with her too.
