Russ Fielden, originally from the UK, and Magdalena Fielden, from Mexico, worked together in the Yacht Chartering and Hospitality industries for almost 30 years in Mexico, the South Pacific and Caribbean. Along with their two daughters, Marie and Renatta, they moved to Grenada and purchased the hotel in 1998. Russ, a trained engineer, and Magdalena, an architect, have made the ideal team to create True Blue Bay Boutique Resort.
Their homespun hospitality skills and years of experience have created a “Grenadian home away from home” experience for guests at their lovely resort. They have personally designed the entire hotel, from building every room to choosing each decoration, implementing all details to create a Caribbean paradise for relaxation and indulgence.
Besides building and operating a busy hotel, Russ and Magdalena have dedicated much of their time supporting the Grenadian Community. Magdalena has been appointed the Honorary Consul of México to Grenada and Russ has been awarded an OBE from the government of England for his service to the island.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, the area known as True Blue was an Indigo plantation. As the price of Indigo dropped, the plantations fell one by one into disuse. In 1968 the Caribbean Trade Fair was held in True Blue. It was during this time that the roads we enjoy today were built. Later the area was subdivided and over several years True Blue developed into one of the most desired areas of Grenada and the home of St. George’s University.
In 1998, Magdalena and Russ purchased what was then called True Blue Inn, which consisted of three, two-bedroom cottages and four waterfront apartments. They dug in and started refurbishing and rebuilding. By the end of 1999, True Blue Bay Resort was a handsome fifteen-room resort. During the summer of 2001, another large investment was made and the twelve Indigo rooms were built. Shortly after, the resort underwent yet another transformation and five two-bedroom villas and the Petite Anse Infinity Pool opened by the end of 2003.
In 2004, Hurricane Ivan spread its devastation across the island and like other properties, True Blue Bay Resort was heavily damaged. However, due to the positive attitudes and hard work put forth by the Fieldens, their staff and many of the occupying guests, the resort managed to stay open taking care of guests and islanders alike. The rebuilding process was extensive. Most of the rooftops were destroyed, the water damage was overwhelming and the heavy winds blew away the two-bedroom cottages.
The reconstruction efforts after Ivan, brought about the True Blue Rooms, and the ultra-romantic Tower Rooms completed in November 2005. The Dodgy Dock Restaurant and Lounge Bar’s (formerly Stuart’s Bar) renovation was completed in October 2006, and is once again an island hotspot.
In 2010 True Blue Bay Resort renovated their old "Waterfront Apartments" and transformed them into 10 striking "Waterfront Suites" featuring Magdalena's unique decor with comfortable Caribbean designed furnishings, king size beds, fully equipped kitchen, living room and fantastic balconies with spectacular views of the glinting waters of True Blue Bay.
At present, this Grenada Boutique Resort has 48 rooms, waterfront restaurant, marina, dive center, yacht charter, boutique, 2 pools, spa and plans to continue improving the facilities.
Guests often comment about our friendly staff who always seem to know their name. The True Blue Team ensures each and every guest feels special and a part of the True Blue family.
“Our staff is our best asset,” says Russ Fielden. True Blue Bay Boutique Resort has over 80 hardworking, dedicated staff members willing to go the extra mile to fulfill the hotel’s mission statement, “To make our guests happy and be happy in doing so.” Many staff members have spent the majority of their careers working at the hotel, some for over 10 years.
