The Spice Island Beach Resort is the innovation of Sir Royston Hopkin KCMG, the first and only Caribbean hotelier to be knighted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It is the culmination of his vision to meld poetry, exclusivity, and modernity into a luxury oasis that blends seamlessly into its Caribbean environment.
Tucked away on pristine shorelines just 10 minutes from the airport, Spice Island Beach Resort is surrounded by immaculate tropical gardens and features 64 elegantly appointed suites.

The spa was recently updated to include a separate hair salon; a new manicure and pedicure facility; an indoor couples massage room; and sauna area complete with double-outdoor showers.
Boasting an consummate culinary programme, the resort offers patrons sevencourse dinners ranging from diet-friendly to decadent at Oliver’s beachside gourmet restaurant, and refreshing cocktails available throughout the day at the Sea & Surf Bar. Guests also have access to a central swimming pool with swim-up whirlpool, an Omnicourt® tennis court, the Nutmeg Pod children’s activity center, and the Gatsby Boutique, etc.
Spice Island Beach Resort’s unique service- oriented philosophy is cited among the top reasons for repeat guests’ loyalty to the resort. Under the direction of Sir Royston, employees receive ongoing training and are encouraged to grow both spiritually and as hospitality professionals.
In addition to the TripAdvisor accolade, which was awarded before the resort embarked on its latest renovations project, Sir Royston’s approach to service has earned the resort a prestigious Gold from Virgin Holiday’s as the number one property in the tour operator’s exclusive worldwide Platinum Collection. Other notable honours include Condé Nast to Fodor’s, and extensive recognition for the resort’s environmental programme. Suffice to say, Spice Island Beach Resort is in a category of its own and is beyond compare.
