Tell us about yourself

Back in 2007, I came across a beautiful piece of land with the most spectacular view. I wanted to show people the beauty of the island of Grenada in the Caribbean and how beautiful this area is, including the view. So I bought the land and had plans drawn up for the hotel. Every day I enjoy hosting guests and showing them what's special about Grenada, the food, and the people who work with me.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Creating a beautiful hotel with staff that welcomes guests with warm smiles.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Being responsible for it all. That comes with the territory.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Believe in your dreams, work hard and be consistent with your values in the actions you take.

Where can people find you and your business?
