Grenada is a unique Caribbean island in terms of climate and geophysical features. It also plays host to the critically endangered Leatherback turtles during their annual nesting season amongst other endangered species. Petite Anse is proud to protect our island in addition to the planet’s resources.
Our hotel is one of the premier resorts on Grenada when it comes to playing its part for the environment. We support the turtle conservation program, use solar power for energy and grow as much of our own produce as possible.
Our environmentally conscious efforts in a nutshell:
- dirty towel policy
- use local produce
- support local conservation work
- use LED bulbs
- conserve energy
- use solar energy when possible
- reuse recycle and reduce waste
We use solar energy to heat water on the majority of our cottages.

Local and sustainable
Petite Anse Hotel was built by hand using hardwood that is sustainable. Talented artisans from the island crafted our furniture from wood and carved . We also have artwork from local artists.
The hotel is a premier employer in Sauteurs and the local villages. We also continue to support local businesses by buying freshly caught fish, produce and other supplies that we need to run the hotel.
Our chefs prepare meals from our fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs that we grow in our organic garden. We have also installed LED lights to save on energy.
From the recycling of ‘galvanage’/corrugated iron in our pieces of our artwork to our freshly picked coconuts, we put the environment first and do what we can to reuse, recycle and reduce.
