Ah St Lucia! It’s little wonder this stunning isle has been a firm favourite with our luxury travellers for more than 40 years with its twin peak Pitons, secluded coves, lively culture and tropical rainforests…not to mention its fine selection of all-inclusive hotels and resorts.
BodyHoliday*; a luxurious, all-inclusive, wellness-centred resort, where a daily spa treatment comes as standard. During the school holidays families with teenagers will love Well-Fit Families weeks, with everything from lifeguard classes to healthy-cooking lessons. Then there's September Solos, with a focus on luxury wellness breaks for solo travellers.
Rendezvous*; at this couples-only, all-inclusive hotel, a romantic holiday can be enjoyed against a boutique-style setting, where privacy and relaxation are key. Stretching along the dreamy two-mile white sands of Malabar Beach and surrounded by exquisite botanical gardens, the backdrop to this former coconut plantation is divine.
Windjammer Landing; premium all-inclusive means something very special at this beach resort, from Champagne Shrimp Risotto at Papa Don’s to water skiing in the crescent-shaped bay. A visit to the spa will ease your cares away.
Sugar Beach; though not an all-inclusive hotel, the sublime Sugar Beach with its famous Rainforest Spa offers an all-inclusive package for guests which includes breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, house brand alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Calabash; a boutique hotel, tucked away in L'Anse Aux Epines Bay, Calabash is a laidback luxury spot in which to relax, with a calm beach, spa and signature restaurant by British chef Gary Rhodes. The all-inclusive Grenada holidays available for this hotel offer exceptional value.
East Winds Inn; this easy-going all-inclusive boutique resort is set in 12 acres of tropical gardens on a pretty and secluded bay. Ensure that you don’t miss Friday's barbecue on the beach, with its lobster grill and live music.
*The sister hotels BodyHoliday and Rendezvous deliver ‘luxury all-inclusive’ superbly. In practice this means including those little extras which will make your holiday extra special. For example at BodyHoliday you’ll enjoy fine dining at the acclaimed TAO restaurant and a 50-minute spa treatment every day as part of your all-inclusive package, while over at Rendezvous highlights include the nightly Champagne and sparkling wine tasting sessions in the Champagne Bar and a complimentary diving programme.
