Tivigny, an ocean view resort tucked into a tranquil nook overlooking Clarkes Court Bay on Grenada’s southeastern coast was home for a week.
Kay and I always sought an oasis like vacation villa that is exclusive and unpretentious at the same time. Tivigny met all expectations. Kim, our proprietress and Ursel, her resourceful assistant were accessible and attentive throughout our stay.
Immediately after greetings, we were provided a tour of the property, detailed introductions to the bevy of amenities and keys to everything and everywhere on the property. After a couple hours of trial and error, Tivigny grew on us. It began to feel as our true home.
The villa’s motif is coastal interior design. And everywhere whether living, dinning, recreational, a tranquil corner to meditate or read, you will find comfort and things to enjoy, namely, a nap in a hammock; a few breast strokes in the infinity pool, a gourmet kitchen where Ursel prepared our farm to table seafood dinners; a tranquil sunny area to have breakfast while listening to chirping Grenadian doves and kites; or enjoy a John le Carre thriller or a P.D. James “who done it” or even a video from the well-stocked library during periods of relaxation.
And of course safety and security! The remote operated gate to enter the property made us safe because we controlled who entered and exited. Guests that stopped by for evening cocktails were buzzed in and out either with a hand held gadget or a buzzer conveniently located on a wall near the mini office just off the dining area.
Then there is the thriving Tivigny gardens. The gardens are modeled in the spirit of new naturalism. Shrubs, trees, vines are allowed to grow into their natural shapes. The impact is a garden rich in green, yellow, and purple foliage. The oleanders and frangipani of various hues let off perfumed fragrances each time a breeze goes by (especially at night time); colorful flowers such as periwinkle, bougainvillea in red, white, pink, purple; hibiscus in red and yellow show off their splendor from any direction you look. For tree fans and gardeners Tivigny gardens has a large flamboyant tree on the perimeter facing the bay, numerous species of palm trees, fruit trees including citrus and various species of cacti. As a fledgling gardener Tivigny elevated my spirit because it is colorful, fragrant and well maintained.
The vistas from the villa, wow! From our balconies and decks is a wide open bay extending to the Atlantic; interrupted by a couple islets, petite peninsulas and smaller bays dotted with an assortment of yachts and small boats. Each morning I step on the balcony I survey the calm bay looking for boats going by in the distance and smaller boats moving briskly back and forth to their shoreline jetties. We visited the Tivigny private jetty to check out the paddle boats and engine boat before taking them out for leisurely trips. While in the area checking out the mangroves, we discovered several vacation homes tucked back into the shrubberies. What a discovery!
On our final night at Tivigny, Kay and I concluded Tivigny, “carry the swing” and will be home for our annual spring breaks.

Stayed at the Tivigny house for my birthday with my wife and it was one of the most memorable. Wonderful views nestled in the hills overlooking the sea in Woburn Bay.
Equipped with everything you could need and then some - infinity pool is perfect and together with LED lights and a surround sound entertainment system - it is ideal for a good get together as well.
Would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend some quiet relaxing time with family and friends. Will be back soon- thank you for a great birthday celebration!
Had the best time here at the Tivigny villa. Anything and everything is provided here. Wonderful views of the sea from all parts of the house make it truly breathtaking. Place is very private and secure. Especially loved the LED lights in the infinity pool and paired with the surround entertainment system was perfect to listen to some of our favorite music. Will definitely be back and would recommend this place to anyone.
