Opening to guests on 1 October 2020, The Point at Petite Calvigny is an ultra-high end boutique resort with just a handful of abodes. Ideal for a more secluded stay, the new opening features 3 villas and 12 suites with a host of luxury wellness amenities to explore.
Situated on an 11 acre estate sloping to Benji Bay on the south coast of Grenada, the petite resort features a private-access, secluded beach, a state-of-the-art gym and wellness centre. Guests can switch off and make the most of The Petite Spa, five swimming pools, a beach bar, restaurant and a private marina.
The Point’s owner, Chris Ashby, fell in love with the raw, natural beauty of The Point with its stunning views, secluded beach and proximity to a marine sanctuary. It inspired him to create a luxury ‘cloistered sanctuary’ where the outside world is firmly left at the ‘entrance/gate’.
The new resort aims to provide guests with a calming, restorative setting and experience (who doesn’t need a break after the stressful months of 2020). Key to achieving this will be a personal consultation with the Vibe Director, who works with guests to create a stay that is perfectly attuned to their specific needs.
Check in to mix and match from an extensive list of options including dining, fitness, spa therapies and adventures around Grenada to help an explorer Awaken, Renew, Enhance and Enrich their holiday experience.
The Point has been built to the highest eco standards without compromising on comfort or luxury. With a sustainable ethos at its core, there are many hidden eco-friendly elements that give the property an environmental edge; such as eco-compliant building materials; super insulated walls, UV filters on windows and doors to minimise energy consumption; rainwater harvesting to provide drinking water and a wastewater treatment system that produces water to irrigate the gardens.
What’s more, all toiletries are vegan-friendly and free from parabens, sulphates and phosphates – while the spa incorporates local products such as scrubs made using natural, local ingredients.
Stunning West Indian style
Reflecting the wellness focus of the resort, all accommodation has been named after crystals such as Citrine and Blue Lace. Designed in a contemporary West Indian style with warm wood finishes, rooms are spacious and bathed in natural light from floor to ceiling windows that allow for magnificent, unobstructed views of the bay and nearby islands.
Each of the three split level villas has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a private infinity pool and deck with a grilling station. The 12 single floor suites have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, private balconies and share two large free form swimming pools, a swim up bar and outdoor grilling station. A selection of fresh herbs are available for guests wishing to add a little extra flavour to their barbecue.
Both the villas and suites have fully custom kitchens, dining and living rooms and internet-based TV. Extra touches such as oil diffusers, mood lighting, high quality hypo allergenic bedding, insulation to reduce sound and black out curtains help to promote good sleep.
Of course, don’t expect to cook. A private chef service means that guests can enjoy sumptuous meals cooked for them in the comfort of their own villa or suite. Alternatively, guests can dine on local dishes delivered from a selection of handpicked restaurants.
Guests seeking relaxation can while away their days on the private beach, chilling out by the pool or exploring the marine sanctuary of Benji Bay. An assortment of classes are offered including meditation and yoga. There is also the opportunity to experience a Grenadian style tea ceremony where participants will learn how to prepare traditional medicinal teas
For the more active, there is a state of the art gym as well as classes for stand up paddle board workouts, HIIT – high intensity interval training, Barre – a full body workout inspired by ballet movements, CrossFit and boxing.
On the activity front, The Point has curated an expansive list of experiences that give guests the opportunity to enjoy Grenada’s nature and culture with ease. Expeditions include an exclusive Bay Bar Crawl, that uses the resort’s own speed boat to stop at several chic waterside bars. For foodies, there’s also a number of private food experiences such as a spice cooking class, a food tour exploring the countryside and waterfalls and a culinary walking tour of St George’s that includes sampling local dishes.
Chris Ashby, owner of The Point at Petite Calvigny, commented: “The Point is the first luxury resort in Grenada that is totally focussed on wellness. We offer discerning travellers the perfect combination of luxury accommodation in a peaceful setting with the ability to design their stay exactly as they wish. We have an extensive list of suggestions but, to be honest, the only limiting factor is the imagination. If a guest wishes to visit the rainforest at midnight, swim with turtles in the Tobago Cays or have a massage on the beach, we will make it happen.”
