Although St. Lucia is one of the well known luxury holiday destinations it is still possible to find exquisite boutique hotels and resorts, which are not overrun with tourists.
Known as the ‘Helen of the West’ because of its rich natural beauty, luxury hotels in St Lucia seem to offer the usual tourist Caribbean cocktail of lush tropical forests and beautiful beaches, but its topography and ecology cannot be matched.
Its twin coastal peaks, the primeval Pitons, soar 610 metres up from the sea making them a dramatic landmark on an Island that is a bijou 43 kilometres long and 22 kilometres wide. Soufriere volcano is also the world’s only drive-in volcanic crater, while the rainforests with their wild orchids, giant ferns and brilliantly plumed tropical birds, are among the Caribbean’s finest. In addition, the island possesses world-class facilities for golf and tennis, brilliant markets and its stunning reefs, sheltered bays (such as Marigot), and well equipped marinas are prefect for water sports.
Having been inhabited long before colonial times, St. Lucia also offers a rich body of cultural French and English heritage with some African thrown in for good measure. The French/English mix is embodied at sites like Pigeon Island, as well in its brilliant cuisine and passion for cricket.
It is this diversity that makes St. Lucia so attractive.
