Recently I made a two-week trip to the island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean.
Famous for its Pitons and jungles, St. Lucia has something to offer for everyone. The image gallery above includes photos from the resorts I stayed at, and what I did whilst I was there, which I will link below.
Sugar Beach Viceroy Resort:
Sugar Beach is a resort situated right in-between the Gros Piton and the Petit Piton. It is about 10 minutes off of the main road down a windy road through the pitons, and is about a 10 minute drive from the town of Soufriere. There is also lots to do around the Soufriere area, like the volcano, mud baths and sulphur springs, making Soufriere the ideal area to stay.
Hotel Chocolat St. Lucia:
Boucan by Hotel Chocolat is the resort set up by Hotel Chocolat on the original cacao plantation in St. Lucia. Boucan is more of a boutique hotel than the others listed on this blog post, it is a lot smaller and quieter, which is better for couples or honeymooners. It is about 10-15 minutes from Sugar Beach, and at 9am you can make your own chocolate from scratch.
Jade Mountain Resort:
Jade Mountain resort is a hillside resort in the area of Anse Mamet. It is almost directly opposite the Gros and Petit Pitons, so all infinity pools have the same view. Definitely not one to stay at if you suffer from travel sickness though - the roads are very windy!
Windjammer Landing Beach Resort:
Windjammer Landing was my favourite resort I stayed at on the island. Although it is the furthest away from the main airport, which is a nightmare for those who suffer from travel sickness, it is accessible by helicopter (weather permitting). The staff here are amazing and always go out of their way for you, they can't do enough for you! It also had the best atmosphere, steel pans always playing and so many restaurants to choose from. It's also a 15 minute drive from Rodney Bay, which is really nice to visit and has good places to eat!
