  • Tailor-made luxury holidays to St Lucia

    A 02 CE27 Island

    Luxury hotel holidays to St Lucia
    St Lucia stands at the heart of the Windward Islands; a lush, fertile island of volcanic peaks, rainforest and banana plantations. Bitterly contested in bygone centuries by the British and French, St Lucia’s history is reflected today in the creole architecture and cuisine and the impossibly difficult to understand patois. The great range of luxury hotels and resorts on the island ensures that there is the perfect destination for every type of holiday. For example, Anse Chastanet is a charming hotel which offers a true flavour of the Caribbean whilst existing in harmony with its natural surroundings, whilst Sugar Beach offers luxurious accommodation with modern facilities in a stunning location.

    The character and aspect of the island of St Lucia between the north around Castries and the south around Soufrière is vastly different. In the north you have the bays, coves and sheltered harbours, white sandy beaches and tourist resorts whereas the south is famous for the volcanic, forest-covered Pitons, sulphur springs and rain forest. The north of St Lucia will appeal if you want a luxury Caribbean beach holiday with comfortable, contemporary accommodation and the possibility of venturing out for days, and the south is to be recommended for those who want the experience of life in a lush, tropical environment with the close proximity of the rainforest.
     
    Early booking offers
    Almost all the hotels in St Lucia have early booking offers for winter 2017/18 and summer 2018.These offers are to be found on the individual hotel pages in our website and they are up-dated daily, so that the most up-to-date offers should show. Just click on the image below or the link on the right-hand side of the large picture for the hotel you are interested in and their offers will appear on the first page for the hotel.

    Getting out and about

    The west coast road from Castries to Soufrière has a good surface and width but just winds up and down the length of the coast. The scenery is dramatic and well worth experiencing by hire car. Boat trips along the coast are also possible and afford breathtaking views of the mountains. Signposting in Castries is almost non-existent so be armed with a detailed map but be prepared to get lost a little. South of Castries, Soufrière and Hewanorra airport are well signposted..
