Spice island of Grenada ranks as top overseas wedding destination
Tropical Sky, the luxury travel specialist, has named the Caribbean island of Grenada as a top 10 destination to get married. Known as the ‘spice island’, Grenada has seen an increase in couples looking to tie to knot overseas in turn boosting local tourism and spelling good news for property owners.
The overseas wedding market has grown steadily in recent years with 1 in 6 British couples marrying overseas in 2008. Main motivators for weddings abroad include cost savings and the avoidance of stress, not to mention reliable weather! The Caribbean remains a top choice for couples seeking seclusion, sunshine and special moments and luxury resorts such as the 5 star Bacolet Bay Resort & Spa, situated on the south eastern coast, offer use of a traditional Grenadian wedding chapel, just meters from the beach and with stunning ocean views.
This trend for overseas weddings is proving lucrative for Grenadian property owners also who are enjoying:
ü Increased tourism to the island

ü Better accessibility such as increased flights by British Airways from the UK
ü Demand for high quality accommodation
ü Year round rental returns of up to 14% p.a.
