ROOMS, SUITES & VILLAS
Silversands Grenada is home to 43 studio suites, four Hillside and five Beachfront Pool villas. Guest rooms and suites span across two main buildings off Grand Anse Beach, encompassing 39 open-plan guestrooms, three one-bedroom suites, and a sprawling penthouse. Families can choose from various combinations of interconnecting rooms and suites, each accommodating up to two adults and one child, or one of the three or four-bedroom pool villas.
