Vegan Bed and Breakfasts in Grenada:
The Lodge Grenada is a completely vegan establishment. All products used on the property are vegan. The owners are vegan.
Our staff is not necessarily vegan but the staff meals are vegan. Out of work our staff are entitled to do as their conscience dictates, we are not in control of their minds, any thing else would be discriminatory. say the owners.
They've been in business for 4 years offering a vegan experience in the Caribbean, which offers panoramic views of hills, valleys, rainforest, mountains, the Caribbean Sea, sunsets and sunrises.
It is owned and operated by Mary Hardy (vegetarian since childhood and became vegan 17 years ago) and Mark Hardy (vegetarian for 22 years and then vegan 17 years ago). They say they are vegan because it is a logical progression from being vegetarian that was helped by lactose intolerance.
Some words from Mary and Mark: "We have a vegan garden and grow most of our own veg' and fruit on the land. We harvest rain water, use solar hot water, and have a non chemical swimming pool. We ve planted over two hundred trees and we offer the only vegan hotel in the Caribbean."
