Grenada Offers Up a Host of Spicy Treatments

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the island of Grenada, also known as the Island of Spice. Although the island was hit hard by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, it has since rebuilt and now offers a number of enticing spas. On my recent trip there, I toured several and was especially taken with how many of the treatments incorporated the island's local spices. For example, Janissa's Spa at Spice Island Beach Resort relies on a number of local herbs and spices. Nutmeg is especially popluar. There is also the Spicy Grenadian Body Scrub ($90) at LaSource's Oasis Spa. On a hike to the popular Seven Sisters Waterfall, my guide pointed out some of the spices that could be found growing along side the trail. It was then I realized cinnamon actually comes from the bark of a tree. Stay tuned for more on Grenada's spicey spa scene in an upcoming issue.
