IHG Hotels & Resorts has broken ground on its new property, InterContinental Grenada Resort.

The hotel will comprise 150 rooms and 30 private suites, in addition to spa and pool, on-site fitness centre and numbers of restaurant and bar destinations.

Expected to open in 2025, the property will also feature a conference centre, over 6,000ft2 of meeting space and on-site business centre.

IHG Hotels & Resorts development SVP Julienne Smith said: “As the world’s first and largest international luxury travel hotel brand, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts continues to delight guests with new destinations in travel hot spots across the globe.

“We’re looking forward to working alongside Range Developments – one of the leading names in Caribbean hospitality – to bring what surely will be one of the finest resorts in the region to life.”

IHG is collaborating with exterior designer Simeon Halsted and Associates, interior designer Bleu Design, and developer Range Developments for the new property.

InterContinental Grenada Resort is situated on the shoreline of La Sagesse Beach and will stand next to the in-development Six Senses Grenada hotel.

Range Developments managing director Mohammed Asaria said: “The InterContinental Grenada Resort will offer such versatility and everything guests need to enjoy a complete and fulfilling stay. We are honoured to bring the legacy and fanfare of the InterContinental brand to this beautiful tropical location.”

IHG operates a network of 43 InterContinental Hotels & Resorts across the Americas, and a further nine properties in the regional pipeline.

Last month, the hospitality company unveiled plans to launch InterContinental Resort Crete in Greece in spring next year.
