Spice Island Beach Resort – November 2020 Reopening

SPICE ISLAND BEACH RESORT, GRENADA EYES NOVEMBER 2020 REOPENING

The team at Spice Island Beach Resort has been carefully monitoring local, regional and international developments related to the COVID 19 pandemic, and verily believes that the resort can play an integral role in the economic recovery of Grenada and more specifically the hospitality sector. The team continues to prepare steadfastly in order to be fully operational for a tentative reopening on 01st November, 2020.

The Spice Island Beach Resort’s first priority is the health and safety of its staff and guests and therefore will be working with all the guidelines of the local and international health officials regarding COVID 19, particularly all the protocols required for restaurants and hotels along with the accompanying amenities and services.

“The management and staff will make the necessary adjustments to the resort’s operations in order to adapt to the new normal that will be required once travel and social restrictions have been eased by the Government of Grenada,” said Janelle Hopkin, president and managing director of the resort.

“We will be back and we can hardly wait to welcome our new and returning guests,” said Hopkin. “Just the thought of their smiling faces and creating memorable experiences for them, keeps us going,” she added.

Hopkin outlined her current plans for the resort, highlighting the on-going enhancements which commenced two years ago. “There’s a lot more work to be done to take us to the next level and that is what we will be using this time to achieve,” she noted.

The newly appointed President and Managing Director of the resort, who succeeded her late father Sir Royston Hopkin KCMG, says, “we still have a lot going for us and my intention is to complete the work my dad began by sticking to the master plan he unveiled in 2018 and rolling out a new and improved resort for 2021.” The resort’s reservations team will be available Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00p.m., through the resort’s telephone +1-473-444-4258 and reservations email reservations@spicebeachresort.com will continue to be active. Resort management will also be available during these times and for any questions on the numbers provided in the resort’s voicemail. Tucked away on a spectacular stretch of Grand Anse Beach just 10 minutes from the airport, Spice Island Beach Resort encompasses 64 elegantly-appointed suites including 17 private pool suites as well as luxurious beachfront accommodations which open directly onto the sand. The independent, family-owned property has garnered significant attention in recent years as Grenada’s tourism stature grows internationally.

Adam Hambrick – “Between Me and the End of the World”

ADAM HAMBRICK RELEASES COVID-19 INSPIRED SONG “BETWEEN ME AND THE END OF THE WORLD”

FEATURED BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS’ ‘REFLECTING THE TIMES’ 

Capitol Records Nashville / Buena Vista Records’ Adam Hambrick released his new song, “Between Me and the End of the World,” today. Listen HERE.

The song is a heartfelt tribute to Adams’s wife, a physician assistant who has been treating patients throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and what it has been like for Adam watching her help those in need despite the risk to own self. “This song is for all the people who step in and serve people when things go horribly wrong,” says Adam. “I have spent this quarantine watching my wife go off to work as a physician assistant to do her version of that, testing and treating people for the virus. It has given me a new appreciation for all the people who spend their lives serving others in difficult times. It’s terrifying seeing someone you love do what they were made to do but have to do it in harm’s way.”

In a departure from the norm, Adam wrote “Between Me and the End of the World” during a solo write and recorded the vocal in his bedroom while his wife was working alongside him. All of the additional recording was done remotely from each musicians’ home studio. The track was featured earlier this week by The Associated Press in their piece ‘reflecting the times’ describing the song as “a tearjerker.”
