The luxury of Saint Lucia

Alison Lester | 16 Dec, 2014

I last visited St Lucia about 10 years ago so I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to revisit the island earlier this year, and I am happy to say the island itself has changed very little, but the choice of luxury hotels has greatly increased, giving plenty of options for couples, families and solo travellers.

On arrival, instead of a two hour twisty road transfer we jumped on a helicopter and had a thrilling 15 minute ride up to Castries in the north of St Lucia. I strongly recommend this mode of transfer after a long flight, but just remember to pack a few things in your hand luggage as your main cases will follow by road!

Here we visited the best of the best hotels: Cap Maison, Rendezvous, The BodyHoliday, East Winds, The Landings and Calabash Cove. On one of our days on the island we travelled down by boat to the south coast (on the way we were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins playing) to see the infamous Pitons as well as the amazing Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort, Boucan by Hotel Chocolat and Anse Chastanet.

I would highly recommend a week’s stay in the north and then a week’s stay in the south, so you can fully experience the island and what it has to offer, as there is plenty to do in St Lucia, such as: visiting the volcano Mount Soufriere, the Diamond Botanical Gardens, a Segway tour, zip-wiring through the tree-tops (highly recommended as long as you are good with heights!) as well, of course, as shopping in Rodney Bay.

St Lucia is still one of my favourite Caribbean islands. As well as its beauty, the St Lucian people welcome you with open arms and a happy smile…I look forward to returning soon.
