Sea­soned sailors know the is­land of Gre­nada well. Set on the south­ern end of the Caribbean clus­ter, just north­east of Venezuela, the well-po­si­tioned is­land has long held an al­lure for yacht own­ers, de­spite (or per­haps be­cause of ) its lack of up­scale op­tions on land. As of this month, how­ever, there’s fi­nally a rea­son to dis­em­bark—and maybe even set down roots: Sil­ver­sands Gre­nada (sil­ver­sands­, the is­land’s first true lux­ury re­sort, opened De­cem­ber 1 with 43 suites on the edge of Grand Anse Beach.
