My husband and I had our honeymoon in La Luna and we had a fantastic time. The resort only holds 16 bungalows and it felt very secluded. The resort is about a 15 min drive from the airport. It's one of those places where you show up and they immediately take care of everything. The staff is extremely helpful and attentive without being intrusive. We stayed in a private bungalow 50 stairs up from the beach. It has a beautiful bed, Wifi and a DVD player. The bathroom is open to the outside, but has 4 walls and a ceiling. I was worried about bugs, but saw only one month in there the whole time. The private plunge pool is very small, but pleasant. The cottage comes with a cute outdoor seating area but we had to rig an extra curtain to ensure privacy. Anyone walking down the path would be able to see in. The cottages are great, but most of them didn't have a ton of privacy in the outdoor areas. Some are located near the road and may experience noise from vehicles. Ours was located about halfway up the mountain and had lush trees in front of it with a limited view of the ocean. The flight of stairs was steep, but not an issue. There are multiple cottages much further up. There is one right on the beach, but didn't look like it had any privacy. I would prefer ours (cottage 5) to the more expensive beach one. The air conditioning worked well.
The resort has a beautiful simple elegance to it. This is definitely no chain resort. It is done in a Balinese style and has a ton of great seating areas. The restaurant serves mainly Italian food and every single thing we had was delicious and is considered one of the top five restaurants on the island. We had lots of pasta, amazingly seasoned fresh fish and fantastic deserts! Especially the creme brulee. We ate every breakfast and dinner there.
Part of our package included massages and the spa area was like any other fancy spa I have been to. Our Balinese masseurs gave fantastic Balinese and hot stone massages. The spa was beautifully decorated and was surrounded by lush greenery.
Yoga was offered every day and was done on a tranquil pavilion overlooking the water nearby a vegetable garden and the teachers were as good as any I have found before.
We went the last week in May and did not encounter any mosquitoes. It did rain quite a bit, but not all day. If you don't like small lizards don't come here! They were everywhere and very cute. There weren't a lot of guests and we we joined by only about 6 all week. Many times we were the only ones on the beach. The beach is very small- about 10 feet deep, but the water is clean and warm. No waves and plenty of shells to collect.
The resort has two Hobie cats-- a small Hobie wave and a larger Hobie 16. The Hobie 16 is the owner's and I presume one would have to discuss with him before using it. We took the small Hobie out on the water alone and had a blast. You have to sign a form saying that you have sailing experience and know how to right a flipped vessel.
Grenada was an extremely easy transition from NYC. We took a 4 hour direct flight on Caribbean Airlines. The dollar is accepted, but La Luna exchanged money for us anyway and the tap water is safe to drink. The language of the island is English and we had a very easy time getting around. Temperatures stay the same year round. We met a great taxi driver on our arrival to the airport named Augustine. La Luna has his info. When we decided to go into town we called him and dropped us off/picked us up and drove us around the town for no extra cost. There aren't a lot of pay phones in St. Georges so make sure you know where another hotel is so that you can call for a pick up.
