Rugged and tropical, Saint Lucia’s soft white sands and spectacular Pitons are just part of its many diverse charms. Explore its northern shores and picture-postcard peaks while staying in a pair of our favourite romantic retreats.
Upon arrival, you’ll be met and transferred north to the stunning seclusion of Cap Maison. Perched high above Smugglers Cove beach, the first thing you notice is the unparalleled views across to Pigeon Island and Martinique. Get active with windsurfing and tai chi, or simply bask by the beach or pool – it’s up to you. Spend a romantic afternoon cruising to nearby islands on the hotel’s luxury motor yacht, Sea Ray, then feast on some of the best food in Saint Lucia at the cliff-top restaurant. If you want a change of scene, the restaurants and bars of Rodney Bay are close at hand.
Head to the west coast to end your time in Saint Lucia on a high (quite literally) at Jade Mountain. Here, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the pitons while sipping champagne from the utmost luxury of your suite – what could be more romantic? We recommend arriving by helicopter for the ultimate way to experience those staggering views. If you can drag yourself away, there’s plenty to explore nearby. Visit the rainforest, botanical gardens, drive-in volcano and sulphur springs, or take a shopping trip to the capital Castries by boat. If you’re feeling active, you can even hike up the pitons themselves. But you may decide that they’re best viewed from a distance, with a glass of something chilled.
