My wife and I visited Laluna for our honeymoon during the first part of October. It was amazing! The location is great, the private huts are perfect, and the food was very well done. There are a lot of different aspects that make this place great and we can't wait to visit again, it feels like our second home and we were so sad to leave!
| The Resort |
The resort itself is located on a hill side snuggled into a mini bay. Luscious greenery and crystal clear turquoise ocean water surrounds it. The private cottages overlook the ocean and the main area of the hotel which includes the lounge, swimming pool, office, and restaurant. The atmosphere of the resort is very calm, relaxing, and peaceful. Every time we left the cottage and went down to the pool or beach it was such a chill out experience down by the pool/beach. You could order drinks whenever you wanted, never had to wait, plenty of sunbathing chairs, plenty of room on the beach. The restaurant was never crowded, you always were seated right away and waited on immediately. The spa was tucked away in the trees and sand toward the back of the resort, which was incredibly peaceful. Overall, the entire vibe of the place was just what we needed after the stresses of planning a wedding. Perfect.
| The Cottage |
We were room 8 and it had a beautiful view of the beach and water that stretched on for miles. We were a little skeptical at first of room 8 because there was another cottage to the right of us that in order to get to, they had to walk right in front of our cottage and plunge pool. However, it was never and issue. The cottage featured a huge porch in the front with the plunge pool off to the side, plenty of seating as well. Once inside, the cottage features only one main room, the bedroom. It had a massive king sized bed with a canopy and mosquito net, which we never used. A mini fridge was located in the room along with a TV (never used). The main bedroom does have a A/C unit, which was a must have! There is a pretty good sized closet for longer stays that had shelves and a safe as well. The open air bathroom was awesome! You could be taking a shower and look out and see the ocean, great views. Directly from the bathroom you could step out of a saloon style door and be at the plunge pool on the porch. We had zero complaints with the room, it was so nice and the style and theme was perfect for what we were looking for.
| The Food |
The food was great as well! Not a huge menu but that didn't really phase us, we were able to eat there every night but one and not get tired of it. The Caesar salad is a must have for an appetizer. Every entree is great as well, I wasn't able to try any seafood as I am allergic to shell fish but it sure did look good. The only complaint with the food is there were out of an entree for the whole week we were there :( and it was one we really wanted to try! Other than that, if you book Laluna with one of the meal packages like we did, you won't be disappointed.
| The Beach |
The beach was great as well, even though it's a public beach, it's still very private with few people crowding it. The entire time we were there, it was just Laluna guests on the beach. The only complaint, for me was a big one, but the beach hagglers sometimes can get pretty bad, one after the other. At one point I got firm with one stating we already bought his necklace the day before and we were just trying to relax and enjoy the beach. He did not like that and sat over by a tree for what seemed like a couple hours and would glare at us from time to time, pretty uncomfortable. The resort does have chairs out on the beach under umbrella trees for the guests to use so comfort was not an issue while on the beach or lounge deck.
Overall, we would highly recommend Laluna as a honeymoon or anniversary spot with the package that includes breakfast and lunch, two spa treatments, candle lit beach dinner, rainforest hike, and sunset boat cruise, definitely worth it! We are planning to come back for one of our anniversaries.
Great job Laluna for making our honeymoon special!

It is very rare that we get any vendors along our beach, and the one or two that do, usually never bother our guests, but I will bring this to the attention of the management to have a chat with the one or two guys that do try to sell their wares to our guests, as the local Grenadians are normally very friendly and not pushy.
We look forward to having your stay with us in the future and congratulations on your wedding.
