Janelle Hopkin, President and Managing Director of Spice Island Beach Resort, said, “We are extremely grateful to be able to report that there was minimal impact to the property, and all of our guests weathered the storm with us safely,” adding that they were well cared for by team members who remained on property during the Category 4 storm.

Hopkin commended her team of hospitality professionals for their “extraordinary dedication,” ensuring the safety and comfort of guests during the storm and for the speed with which they have restored the resort to a state of readiness.

Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport reopened swiftly and has resumed full operations, and major airlines are returning.

Hopkin noted that while Grenada returns to the business of tourism, government leaders, tourism stakeholders and residents have been working tirelessly to reach communities hardest hit by the hurricane as they face the challenging and long-term task of rebuilding and recovery. “Grenadians and Caribbean people are resilient, and all hands are on deck to ensure that with a united response our communities are restored stronger than ever,” said Hopkin.
