Silversands Grenada | GM, Narelle McDougal

January 24, 2021



My guest today is Narelle McDougal, GM of Silversands Grenada

Silversands was the first luxury hotel to be built on the spice island of Grenada in over 25 years. It is the antithesis to stuffy luxury set far away from the locals and boring properties that all start to look the same… and just might be the most photogenic resort in the Windward Islands.

Here you can swim the longest pool in the Caribbean, walk 3 minutes down the way to a hopping beach bar, have fresh grown produce in a breezy restaurant, and lime your time away basking in the Grenadian sun. 

Narelle has been behind some of the most iconic hotels in the Maldives and Southeast Asia, but found herself here – on this tiny island in the Caribbean – drawn by the spirit of the people. We discuss what makes Grenada so special and some fantastic insider details about the hotel.
