A guide to Best Hotels in St Lucia
Despite its small size, St Lucia is abundant with beauty, diverse nature and stunning landscapes making it the most picturesque island in the Caribbean. Its breathtaking Piton mountains, a World Heritage Site, are shrouded in lush rainforests and surrounded by tranquil white-sand beaches. And when you’re not taking in this amazing atmosphere there are plenty of geographic and cultural riches to explore including nature trails around the old plantations, sulphur springs and a volcano.
Set in two miles of the magnificent Malabar Beach, the Rendezvous Hotel brings the boutique experience to couples. Loungers for two and plunge pools line the edge of a lazy river that winds through gardens and around a 150-year-old saman tree that as the sun sets, shines with sparkling fairy lights. Couples will enjoy sharing activities such as joint treatments at the spa or creating the perfect Caribbean cocktail at a mixology class, with candlelit dining to end a perfect day.
The lush setting of the Royalton Saint Lucia brings style and comfort to your holiday with its own private beach, seven restaurants, designer bars and sumptuous spa. With its lively but laid-back vibe, the modern facilities and warm staff ensure the scene is set for an unforgettable luxury escape as you enjoy world-class cuisine, ocean-view plunge pools and a whole selection of activities to keep you entertained from snorkelling in turquoise waters to cooking classes.
The Hideaway, part of the Royalton St Lucia, provides an dedicated area for adults only. With all the facilities of the Royalton St Lucia still on hand, adults can enjoy an exclusive and high service experience with its own infinity pool and seafood restaurant. Brimming with complimentary extras, there is waiter service on the beach, express shiatsu massages by the pool, rainfall showers in the rooms, and cold towels handed out in the afternoon – not forgetting the Martini bar for those important post-dinner cocktails.
Located on a private cove, this secluded hotel offers a perfect retreat from it all. There are four pools to enjoy, from a massive pool on the sea front with a swim-up bar to an adults-only piece of paradise on the hilltop with panoramic ocean views. Crab-hunting with the Kids Club, lessons to bring out the Caribbean dancer in you and a lively hub of entertainment in the evening are some of the many activities on offer here.
The BodyHoliday puts wellness at the centre of your stay. This award-winning hotel, set in 32 acres of tropical, orchid-strewn gardens with mosaic tiles and a stone fountain, on the edge of the beach is designed for maximum relaxation and tranquillity. With good diet a top priority, five restaurants serve wholesome, flavoursome food. What’s more, the daily programme of complimentary spa treatments and range of activities to keep you in tip-top condition will set you up for a restorative and rejuvenating holiday.
