Laluna, situated on the beautiful white sands of Morne Rouge, Grenada, is a secluded gem, hiding on ten acres of unspoilt land. Under the expert guidence of the Italian design team, Carmelina Santoro and Gabriella Giuntli, Laluna is built using local materials and blends mimimalist design with luxurious Indonesian touches. Calm and simple spaces, furnishings built of natural materials and alluring water features invite guests to fully relax in a wonderfully sensual environment, surrounded by the fertile green hills which overlook the turquoise sea.
The stunning Morne Rouge beach is great for sunbathing, and for those who like to keep active, Laluna puts on some complimentary activities: mountain biking, snorkeling, hobie-cat sailing and kayaking. Deep-sea fishing is great in the crystal clear waters, as well as scuba diving. Novices can take their diving certificate here. For a trip around the island, take an eco-tour or rent a car or moped to explore at your will. There is also a golf course nearby.
The Laluna spa offers a range of treatments from facials to ritual massages, using handmade products and methods from Bali as well as some Mediterranean treatments. There is a couples room and a wet room with a rainshower. Daily yoga classes offering Hatha, Vinyasa and Kundalini yoga take place on the beachfront pavilion, where guests can take a deep breath and relax while taking in the sea view.
The Sunset Bar with its thatched roof and Indonesian furniture is a lovely spot to watch the sun go down with a cool drink, and the outdoor pool, located right on the beach, has a 5 ft wide shallow edge, great for sunbathing. There is also a fitness room to blow off some steam.
Italian Chef, Daniele Gaetano, has created Laluna's mouthwatering menu, which offers an authentic Italian taste from the romantic & intimate restaurant which opens onto the beach. Ingredients for the array of pasta, fish and meat dishes are imported from Italy and the meal can be rounded off with a refreshing limoncello. There are also some international dishes, including dishes such as tempura shrimps with citrus pickled ginger salsa and sesami wasabi mustard source. The wine cellar has over 10,000 bottles of Italian wine from all over Italy. Some very special wines have been sourced to compliment the menu.
Laluna has 16 1-2 bedroom cottages which have been built using an ancient Mediterranean technique to colour the walls in warm red & yellow tones. Designed to make the most of the stunning beach views, cottages are open plan and the bathrooms are partly open-air, with large custom-made showers looking out to the ocean. Laluna's flair for luxury is evident in the exclusive range of bathroom products, handmade in a monastery in the Italian Alps! A generous wooden verandah leads off from the bedroom, and doubles as an indoor/outdoor living space, luxuriously decked out in natural cottons and beautiful Indonesian-style seating. The real treat is the 31 sq ft plunge pool on each verandah. Bedrooms are spacious at 300 sq ft and all have four-poster Balinese king-size beds with luxurious Italian linen sheets. All cottages have air-conditioning, multi-speed ceiling fans, TV & VCR, stereo & CD player, free WiFi and bathrobes.
