And if you’re considering this Eastern Caribbean island for your honeymoon, Vacation has created a short list of some of our favorite resorts and hotels that you should consider for the ultimate honeymoon on this tropical island paradise.
Anse Chastanet Resort (Soufriere)
Start your life together with help from one of Vacation’s expert travel agents, and book your stay at the idyllic Anse Chastanet Resort, which encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two beautiful beaches (Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin). But it’s the postcard-perfect view of the Pitons that make this the ideal place for a post-nuptial getaway. Stay in one of the resort’s 49 rooms, either nestled into the hillside or built in a garden at beach level. Enjoy an amazing honeymoon filled with activities, such as a Jazzy Champagne Sunset Cruise with live music. And you can’t go wrong with one of the honeymoon packages offered here! We recommend the all-inclusive Total Romance Package that includes a scuba diving course for beginners or 2 dives for certified divers, a half day jungle biking in Anse Mamin Valley, a half day sailing on a yacht and a tour of the Sulphur Springs, Diamond Mineral Baths and old French Colonial Plantation of Anse Mamin.
Sugar Beach by Viceroy (Soufriere)
For newlyweds looking for the location for tranquility and seclusion amid natural beauty… this is it! This luxury resort – sits on 100 acres of an 18th century sugar plantation. And with help from a travel agent, you can book the Sweet as Sugar Romance Package, which includes a 5-night stay in a Luxury Villa, a bottle of champagne upon your arrival, Gros Piton Explorer hike, and a romantic candlelit dinner anywhere on the property. Couples who enjoy giving back to local communities will appreciate this resort’s participation in programs that award scholarships to local children, donate computers to a local community college, and give money to build the new Bouton Combined School. It’s the perfect getaway for newlyweds who want to help out the local community and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon, too.
Jade Mountain (Soufriere)
Celebrate life and love at Jade Mountain Resort – the only resort property on St. Lucia with the iconic view of both the Piti and Gros Piton mountains. Prior to your arrival, a Vacation travel agent and the resort’s romance concierge can help arrange a romantic surprise for your loved one. Enjoy a private dinner under the stars on Jade Mountain’s Celestial Terrace. Advance reservations are required. Couples who want to dine in their room can request the resort’s Executive Chef to provide a one-hour cooking demonstration or to prepare a gourmet meal right in front of their eyes. And for the ultimate honeymoon experience, plan a private beach dinner on Anse Mamin. Need a little after dinner R&R? A travel agent can help you book the unique romance ritual called The Alchemy of Two at the Kai En Ciel Spa. Share delicious treats and poetry while you unwind in a hot tub before a relaxing couple’s massage.
Cap Maison (Castries)
For honeymooners who enjoy golf, consider this luxury hotel, located next door to the St. Lucia Golf & Country Club. And for beachgoers, the family-owned Cap Mason has its own secluded beach. Book one of the resort’s spacious villa suites that are designed like private residences, overlooking Rodney Bay. And if you’re a couple that enjoys food, sample the cuisine at two of the best restaurants on the island. The Cliff at Cap serves French West Indian inspired dishes made with local ingredients, and the cliffside restaurant Naked Fisherman serves Creole cuisine, including Jerk Pork Cutlet, the Catch of the Day with curried pumpkin and coconut, and snow crab with ginger and chili sauce. One of the most unique experiences at this boutique hotel is having a private meal on Rock Maison, a secluded oasis surrounded by the sea. Need a bottle of champagne? A waiter sends it to you in a chilled basket via a zipline. And after your private dinner, newlyweds can retire to the warm waters of a natural rockpool located on the rocky coastline, where you can enjoy a cocktail… or two. And for a few off-site excursions, we recommend a shopping spree at Baywalk at Rodney Bay, which features several duty-free shops, or plan a trip to the Market, located in the heart of Castries, to pick up a few arts and crafts to take home as souvenirs.
Marigot Bay Resort and Marina (Marigot Bay)
Located on the West side of St. Lucia, this luxury retreat is the perfect way to start your lives together. Go for a swim and enjoy the sun by an infinity pool or on the beach, go shopping at the nearby outlet shops, or be adventurous and explore the island together on a charter cruise. With Marigot Bay’s Honeymoon Package, couples enjoy a 4-night stay in a luxury One Bedroom Bay View Suite with other perks including a couple’s massage at Auriga Spa, a chocolate tasting dinner for two and rum tasting in Rum Cave, the resort’s on-site bar. And there’s no shortage of things to do and see. Go ziplining in the rainforest followed by a Creole lunch at a French colonial home. Embark on a hiking adventure with your spouse through Des Cartiers Rainforest Trail, the island’s largest forest, and end the 2-mile hike with a mineral bath under Latille Waterfall. These are all unique experiences an expert travel agent can arrange for the perfect honeymoon.
Ladera Resort (Jalousle)
Located on the island’s southwest corner, Ladera Resort sits on the volcano ridgeline 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea. This eco-friendly, luxury resort’s décor was constructed from locally harvested tropical hardwoods, stone and tile. And the furniture was made by local artisans. Stay in a Hilltop Dream Suite, where its open wall gives way to a private plunge pool and an amazing view of the Pitons. Go on a whale- and dolphin-watching cruise to spot the gentle giants; take a local market tour followed by a cooking class with one of the resort’s chefs; and spend a day of fun in Martinique with a 90-minute boat trip that includes sightseeing, shopping, snorkeling and a BBQ lunch on board.
