Don't even know where to begin. It was the most amazing place ever! We decided to get married abroad and Petite Anse was suggested by a friend in Grenada who had heard about it. We looked at the website and thought it looked wonderful, and after liasing with the owners Annie and Philip (who reassured us how easy it was to arrange the wedding) we booked. When we arrived I was literally breathless at the beauty of the place and how it has perfectly it has been designed and landscaped.
The wedding itself was managed from start to finish by Annie and Philip and was a completely stressless experience. They arranged transport to St Georges (the capital) to process the licence application. Conatcted the priest (there is even a choice of priest depending on your beliefs - if any), who came to see us at the hotel to talk about the wedding and what being married means. Dont be put off we had a great laugh with Gerry. Philip collected the paperwork so that we didnt have to make another journey. The kitchen staff made the cake, and Annie made the bouquet of flowers. they offered to iron my dress before I wore it, it didnt need it though, and Annie kept it so my husband didnt see it until the ceremony. We got married and then champagne appeared. We traveled with our best man, and have friends who live in Grenada so they travelled up in the evening and had dinner with us. The whole day was magical and made so much more special as Annie and Philip just took care of everything, we cannot thank them enough.
We stayed in the honeymoon suite and just echo what all the other reviews say; wonderful views, THE most comfortable bed - made even better by lying with the door open falling asleep to the sound of the sea. Fresh milk, tea, coffee and mini bar filled everyday. Laundry washed and returned next day. All ironed and as fresh as the sea!
The staff are amazing, they are all wonderful, helpful and friendly without being intrusive. If you go you must try a BBC cocktail - my favorite! The food is also wonderful, fresh and changes daily. Lots of local produce and fish. most of it from Annie and Philips garden. The Chef and kitchen staff are so good!
I guess reading this you may think it all sounds too good to be true, but words cannot express how wonderful this hotel is - in everyway. I could write more, our days out to Sandy Island and the waterfall all arranged by Annie and Phillip were brilliant.
The north of Grenada is a beautiful and unspoilt place. There is as much or as little to da as you want. Its not as sticky as the south of the island due to the breeze and less people. You get much more of a local feel visiting there too. We have already planned next years trip and feel it could be an annual one - well we do have an anniversary to celebrate now!
