Grenada welcomes England’s cricketers for second Windies test match

April 21, 2015Article by Ray Withers

As a child I always enjoyed playing cricket and it’s a love I look forward to sharing with my own children once they are old enough to hold a bat properly. It pleased me no end, therefore, when my professional life at Property Frontier’s brought me into contact with the stunning Cinnamon Suites at Bacolet Bay project in Grenada.

Not only can investors in Bacolet Bay enjoy a healthy 10.5% average projected NET yield per annum, but they can also benefit from four weeks’ personal usage per year, one of them in high season. Such an opportunity is perfect for cricket aficionados like myself, given Grenada’s growing reputation as a world-class sporting destination.

Welcome to the Windies

This month, on 21-25 April, the second test of the West Indies tour will see England’s cricketers show their skills in Grenada’s fantastic National Cricket Stadium. The stadium is one of the Caribbean island’s leading sporting venues, attracting cricket fans from across the world to the ‘Spice Island’ to enjoy leading global championships.

Cricket is one sport to have put Grenada solidly on the international map in recent years, but it is far from the island’s only contribution to the sporting calendar. The year starts with the annual LaSource Grenada Sailing Festival, which sees vessels from around the world descend on Caribbean waters for five days of competitions, markets and street fairs. The sailing season also sees the Carriacou Regatta celebrated by Grenada in August, along with races to Bequia and Union Island. Intense volleyball competitions are also held throughout the summer months, along with more light-hearted sporting events such as donkey races.

A unique approach

Having been involved in Grenada’s high end resort market for a number of years now, I’ve had the pleasure of learning about the unique Grenadian attitude to sport. The annual triathlon sums it up perfectly. The event includes a half mile swim, a 12 mile cycle and then a further run of three miles. But that’s not all. The night before the triathlon, an enormous party is held, keeping the islanders dancing into the small hours. The triathlon works to sober up groggy heads for a while but then merges into a huge Sunday picnic on the beach.

It’s an engaging attitude and one I am sure will charm those investing in Bacolet Bay during their weeks of personal usage every year.
