Up early, flying away to Sandals La Source - Grenada here we come!

Today was another super early morning!  Breakfast was at 5:45 am, so this was day three of constantly running and very little sleep!  But today was also the day I was looking most forward to!  Not that the past two days weren't so well worth it...but today, we were heading to Grenada!  Sandal's newest property, Sandals La Source!  If you've seen any of the pictures, it looks like an amazing place!  Would it live up to the pictures?


After a quick plane flight, here we are!  We made it, we're in Grenada!  Some quick photo ops for us all - gotta get the tarmac shots with the "Sandals" plane in the background right?



So, they told us the resort was 80 seconds from the airport - it was.  It is that close!  We wondered if noise would be an issue.  It wasn't.  Granted we were only there for a day, but we never once noticed plane noise overhead.  And there definitely were flights in and out while we were there.  No worries about that!  

Grenada is a beautiful island!  It's a rainforest island, very green and very lush.  And it shows in the property.  We were given a warm, musical welcome!





And then we were split into our smaller groups for our resort tour.  Off to see several of their many room types.   This is one of the main pools  - love those chairs!


And here is a brick oven pizza restaurant by the pool.





We moved along to the standard room category - these are pretty amazing for the entry level rooms!  And they have these really nice pools right in front of them!  






Each patio or balcony has it's own "tranquility" tub...








Next we moved to the fitness center.  It was very complete with a great view of the gardens.





We moved along to one of the areas often used for smaller weddings.  This little bridge is over a nice stream and can be used for a wedding ceremony.  The reception could be held in the grassy area next to it.  We saw a sample table set up as well.  All VERY nice!








When you have a wedding at any of the Sandals or Beaches resorts you can coordinate the table decor with many different choices - just like if you had it at any other venue.  They have a wedding coordinator who works with the bride to make all of the choices - flowers, photos, decorations.....it's a great package!






These are some more of the different buildings.  All with lovely pools outside and beautiful landscaping!





As we moved along, we got a special treat - home made drinks with fresh sugar cane! This isn't a typical part of the day at the resort, but on occasion they may bring in something like this.  It was a pretty cool display though!


And on such a very hot day, some fresh lemonade with real sugar cane was very refreshing!

Next we would be walking over to what many consider to be the highlight of this resort. The Italian Village rooms, the ones that have the Skypools!  These are absolutely stunning! If you ever splurge on a vacation, these are the rooms you will want to run to!  Not walk, run!  I wish my pictures did them justice, but when there are 12 -15 other agents in the room all oohhing and ahhhing and trying to take pictures, it's very challenging to get those great shots without faces and heads in them!  So, I tried my best.  

This is the view from your balcony, from your own private skypool!




Your living room...


This sort of gives you an idea of what the balcony looks like from the side - the lower levels go out into a lazy river instead of a sky pool.



A gorgeous bathroom!




And yet as amazing as those rooms were, I may have one other favorite!  The Pink Gin Beachfront rooms were pretty special!  They walkout right onto the beach and have a fantastic little patio!  These, I loved!   Just look at the view from your patio!




And this is the patio of these beachfront rooms...



Complete with your tranquility tub!


That about wraps up the rooms we saw....I have a bit more to share as far as the resort itself!  That will be coming next!  Suffice it to say, I loved everything I got to see at Sandals La Source in Grenada and it will for sure be on my list of resorts to return to for more than a few hours!
