Come and rejoice with your southern Caribbean family at the Feast in Grenada! This year, the Feast site for the Southern Caribbean will again be on the beautiful island nation of Grenada. Brethren will be attending from the southern Caribbean islands, including Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, and Trinidad & Tobago. Total expected attendance will be around 120, including room for about 80 transfers from other locations.
Grenada is not called “the Spice Isle” for nothing—in certain areas, you really can smell the nutmeg in the air. Other spices also grow in abundance, including cloves, bay leaf, allspice, ginger and turmeric, to name a few. A variety of tropical fruits, as well as cocoa, is also grown. Grenada is a lush, green, mountainous island, with breathtaking views and waterfalls all around.
The Feast of Tabernacles will be held at the newly remodeled, all-inclusive Royalton Grenada Resort and Spa (grand opening on March 1, 2020). This resort was purchased from Rex Resorts and totally remodeled, taking it from a 3-star to a 4.5 star resort. It is about a five-minute drive from the Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND). Located on two white-sand beaches in Tamarind Bay, the resort offers relaxing ocean views and a host of water sports. As it is the only resort on those beaches, it will seem as if we have it all to ourselves. The resort is also surrounded by several acres of beautiful gardens—a truly millennial setting. Because this will be a smaller site, there will be ample time for extra fellowship and you will have the opportunity to share quality time with the local brethren.
If you prefer a little more action, there are many options. In Grenada, the snorkeling and scuba diving are outstanding—there is a marine park including underwater sculptures. Other activities include hiking, rum distillery/cocoa plantation tours, eco and garden tours, deep sea fishing, etc.
We will most likely arrange a couple of group tours, including a catamaran cruise and an island tour. Details about activities are pending, and will be sent to those who register for this site once available.
