How to Indulge Yourself with a Luxury Holiday to St Lucia


St Lucia's mountains make its skyline instantly recognisable. When you think about the island, you probably visualise the twin peaks of the Pitons. Partly thanks to this iconic image, St Lucia has a lively tourist industry, and that's a good thing. The tourist economy supports a wide range of excellent hotels and places to visit. And, because St Lucia is quite a small island, nothing is ever far away.

Most visitors come to the Caribbean for its sunshine and beaches. In St Lucia, you'll find them everywhere. At one of the island's top hotels, you'll be able to relax in the perfect tropical paradise. For its laid-back atmosphere, colourful birdlife, and lush gardens, stay at The East Winds Inn. For French Caribbean charm, wonderful scenery, and luxurious spa facilities, try Jalousie Plantation. Another superb hotel to consider is Cap Maison. Here, you'll find stunning views, along with the quality you'd expect at a five-star hotel.

Jade Mountain Hotel is a very special discovery. If you demand modern luxury, but want to escape from the nuisance of televisions and phones, it could be your dream. Jade Mountain was made for couples who just want to be left alone. Here, you can enjoy your stay in near-complete isolation, just order breakfast, dinner or a spa treatment when you want it.

Alternatively, you might want to get out and see the country.

Visit the famous Pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These two majestic mountains are formed by volcanic plugs. If you're feeling energetic, go for a climb. Alternatively, just relax and soak up the scenery.

At the nearby town of Soufrière, St Lucia's volcanic past is still evident. You'll find hot springs and fumaroles, and it boasts the world's only drive-through volcano. The St Lucia Botanical Gardens, or Diamond Botanical Gardens, are also in Soufrière, so they’re certainly worth a visit. Here, the volcanic minerals help sustain a rich and exotic flora, and a waterfall of dazzling colours.

Depending on the timing of your trip, you might be lucky enough to catch the St Lucia Carnival, or maybe the Jazz Festival. If not, don't worry. You can still enjoy the island's vibrant culture by visiting its capital. With a population of just over ten thousand, Castries isn't a metropolis, but it is buzzing. You'll love its unique atmosphere, and treasure its memory alongside the many you'll take home from St Lucia.

Good post - In my opinion luxury is an art and not just surrounded by the high end hotels, packages and so on. Everyone could be able to run a luxury tour or services if the concern would be only for booking and traveling with expensive vehicles.
