In addition to developer Peter de Savary's $500 million Port Louis project in St. George's, Grenada's tourism product continues to grow in the areas of accommodations, attractions, transportation and infrastructure.

" Mount Cinnamon, another de Savary venture, is a $225 million project on Grand Anse Beach. It will feature a 200-room hotel, a pool, a clubhouse, restaurants, beach facilities, cricket fields, tennis courts and 21 luxury cottages and apartments that will be available for rent when not owner-occupied. Some of the cottages opened in time to host officials and visitors in Grenada for Cricket World Cup matches this past spring.

" The Prickly Bay Waterside residential development sits at the water's edge of the L'Anse aux Epines Peninsula on Grenada's south coast.

The facility will offer a gym, a spa, a pool, dive services, meeting rooms and a business center. It is slated to open late this year.

" La Source, a 200-room resort on Pink Gin Beach near the airport on the south coast, has been closed since Hurricane Ivan hit in 2004. Insurance problems have delayed its renovation and reopening, which is now scheduled for December.

" Bacolet Bay on the east coast is another residential development that will offer apartments and villas for purchase. Construction began in February.

" Levera, a 360-acre site on Grenada's north coast, will feature a 250-room complex, including a 40-room boutique hotel and villas.

The focus of the $112 million project is ecotourism. On-site activities will include turtle watching, horseback riding and hikes on nature trails.

" The Grand Etang Welcome Center and Park has been refurbished. Fort George, Fort Frederick, Annandale, Concorde Falls, the Dougaldston spice estate and the River Antoine rum distillery also have been renovated.

" In northern Grenada, the new Leaper's Hill site offers visitors a history of Grenada and its people, customs and lifestyles.

" The Mount Edgecombe Plantation project is a restoration of a working plantation in St. Mark's Parish on the west coast of the island.  

The property will have a spa, 20 guest rooms and gardens with every kind of fruit and vegetable that is grown on Grenada.
