This open space is decorated with tropical plants and nautical-inspired items that gave the area a welcoming island vibe. A wonderful welcome to guests checking in.

My room had a luxurious and super comfortable king-size bed, a mini fridge, and a desk with power ports on the desk lamp for convenience.
The roomy washroom had dual sinks and a large cubicle shower. There were wall-mounted soap, shampoo, and conditioner dispensers in the shower. All of the light fixtures and hardware in the washroom were vintage bronze, which against the white tiles and vanity, gave the room a rustic marine feel.

The private beach at Grassy Flats resort is enough to make you want to stay for a longer visit. The sandy beach is fantastic for sunbathing, and the water is quite shallow. There is a really nice dock where you can walk out over the water and see the fish swim. It’s also a wonderful place for photos of the sunset and the resort.
Food & Drink
The outdoor patio and restaurant were still being built during my stay, so I was not able to experience dining on the property while there. The space does look really nice, so I’m hoping I can check Bit out on a future visit to Grassy Flats.
There is a beachside tiki bar called Barrel & Bale on the property, where you can get cocktails, craft beers, wines, and spritzes.
