14 Really Romantic Island Resort Retreats - Photo 1 of 15 - Defying every convention of traditional design, the new Sandals LaSource Grenada takes innovation beyond the realm of imagination. Pools in the sky and living rooms in swimming pools. Private plunge pools, cascading waterfalls and meandering river pools. Here, in the heart of Grenada's exclusive Pink Gin Beach, on an exotic island paradise where the intoxicating scents of spice and tropical blooms make a heady elixir for romance.

The Fleming Villa includes its own pocket beach and a modern-day media room Q himself would appreciate.
