Our Product Executive Megan Phillips recently travelled to the Caribbean island of St Lucia to soak up some winter sun and find out what’s new amongst our collection of luxury hotels and resorts there. Safe to say, she was wowed by the adult-only, all-inclusive Serenity at Coconut Bay…
“In November I was lucky enough to stay at St Lucia’s newest luxury resort, Serenity at Coconut Bay, located on the south coast just a short transfer from Hewanorra Airport. Here the adult-only suites are perfect for couples wanting to escape with all-inclusive benefits.
The suites are stunning, enclosed in private courtyard gardens and all with plunge pools and private in-suite dining and butler service included. The butler service was attentive yet discreet and unobtrusive, and I was given a mobile ‘Butler phone’ so I could contact them for anything I needed at any time of day from anywhere in the resort.
The Greathouse is the main restaurant at Serenity and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in the air-conditioned restaurant or on the outside wraparound terrace. Guests can also dine poolside or in a beach cabana in their suite or garden, perfect for a private meal. The food was delicious, all locally sourced and with ingredients from their own kitchen gardens where they grow many of the herbs and vegetables in their dishes.
The hotel boasts a mile of white sand beach where the Spa is located with treatment rooms overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. I also sampled the all-inclusive facilities of the next-door sister hotel that all guests can enjoy, Coconut Bay, which has four signature à la carte restaurants: Silk, La Luna, Seaside and Calabash, which are ideal if you want to dine outside of Serenity.
I went on a private catamaran trip to the Pitons, undoubtedly the best way to see them, and snorkelled at Sugar Beach and Anse Chastanet Beach, the two best snorkelling spots on the island. Making the whole experience seamless, my butler was on hand to help book excursions and experiences throughout my stay.
I had a fantastic experience at Serenity, enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the stunning suites and the amazing all-inclusive service.”
