LA LUNA: LUXURY COTTAGES -
Designed in 2001 by Gabriella Giuntoli, the Italian architect for Giorgio Armani's villa on an island off Sicily, Laluna has a pared-down, natural aesthetic: Indonesian teak-chic meets spare Italian elegance. All 16 one- and two-bedroom romantic cottages?painted in shades of pumpkin, lapis, teal, and plum?are well-appointed : Exotic Balinese four-poster beds draped with sheer muslin panels, earth-colored floors covered with sea-grass rugs, open-air bathrooms with mod metal fixtures. This is truly a secluded honeymoon resort, the romantic cottages at Laluna are just perfect for a couple seeking a romantic, private honeymoon cottage.
Beachfront Courtyard at Laluna:The same soothing mix of wood, cane, cotton, and thatch prevails in the resort's beachfront courtyard. On one end is the breezy restaurant, where Italian chef Benedetto La Fiura cooks up Carib-Continental dishes like callaloo soup (an island specialty made from dasheen, a tuber with spinachlike leaves, and nutmeg) and mushroom risotto. On the other is the open-air lounge, with a fully stocked bar and comfy Indonesian daybeds with plump throw pillows, and low tables that double as footrests. Between the two is pure R&R: a sleek square pool with a perfect curve of beach beyond. This is the perfect secluded honeymoon cottage hideaway in the Caribbean.

WATER SPORTS AT LA LUNA:
Sports on-Site // There's no set agenda at Laluna, but there's plenty to do. Guests with sailing experience can take out one of two Hobie Cats, as well as single and double sea kayaks, for the easy cruise to Morne Rouge Bay, the next cove over. There's a small stash of snorkeling equipment available (keep an eye out for yellow-and-black-striped sergeant majors near the rocky points at either end of the beach) and Specialized mountain bikes for tooling around.
ACTIVITIES FROM LALUNA:
Beyond the Sand // Fight the urge to cocoon at Laluna and head inland and upward to Grand ?tang Forest Reserve, a 3,800-acre tract of rainforest at 2,350 feet, along the island's jungly spine. We spent a day in the charming company of 64-year-old Telfor Bedeau, known to all as the father of Grenada hiking. He led us on a four-hour ramble around Lake Grand ?tang, a rogue crater left over from the island's volcanic past, and along an overgrown tunnel of a trail to a series of five waterfalls (popularly, if erroneously, dubbed the Seven Sisters) and up a hidden path to a bonus cascade called Honeymoon Falls (half-day hikes, $20 per person; 473-442-6200). At A&E Tours, Chicken guides half-day, full-day, and multi-day mountain-bike rides along the coast or through the reserve (our three-hour pedal from the harbor capital of St. George's over the serpentine, near-vertical Grenville Vale Road
Laluna?s intimate environment of the thatched roof dining room restaurant opens directly onto the beach, offering guests a romantic view of the bay. Our intimate size, with a seating capacity for only 48 diners, will provide the perfect ambiance for guests to experience the tempting dishes prepared by Italian Chef Benedetto La Fiura.
wine cellar at Laluna
The restaurant?s unique wine cellar houses popular Italian wines as well as a more select variety from small undiscovered wineries in Italy, most of which will be new to wine lovers in North America. These have been specially chosen to perfectly compliment the restaurant?s eclectic menu, which will combine fare from the sea with the Italian specialties.
lounge & bar at Laluna
Our cocktail bar curves around the open-air deck lounge and the main pool, creating one of the most idyllic spots on the island. The lounge Bar is a perfect location to recapture the day. It is partially covered with a thatched roof and comfortably furnished with Indonesian daybeds and sofas. It faces west for maximum "sunset appreciation
