A combination of luxury and an unspoiled natural environment is one of the Caribbean’s unique features, and Mount Hartman Bay Estate is no exception. With just eight suites, a private beach and a helipad, the estate prides itself on individuality and exclusivity, while the view, and grounds devoted to the cultivation of fresh fruit and vegetables characterise the relaxed, organic environment.
Perched neatly on the Caribbean landscape the hotel is characterised by its unusual, undulating architecture, designed in harmony with the landscape, and allowing the eight individual suites to enjoy panoramic views of the Mount Hartman nature reserve and the bay.
Tradition tells that sailors to Grenada can smell the island before they see it due to the proliferation of exotic fruits and spices such as cinnamon, cloves, mace, turmeric and vanilla that fill the balmy air – the Mount Hartman Bay Estate continues this tradition by making it an integral part of the hotel’s character to grow its own produce.
Grenada is the southernmost of the Caribbean’s windward Islands and enjoys perennial warmth tempered by the sea breeze, which incidentally also dominates the landscape and view – it is an island of lush green vegetation and azure blue waters.
When you are tucked into the hillside of a Caribbean island the view is always breathtaking, and in the case of the Mount Hartman nature reserve with the bay beyond the vivid greens, impossible blues and uninterrupted sunshine deliver beyond expectation.
