Nick and Karolin Troubetzkoy's 49-room tropical hideaway is set amidst steep green hillsides that descend to beautiful sandy beaches below. Secluded bays, individually designed rooms, incomparable views of the Piton Mountains and a plethora of activities are just some of the hotel highlights.
Most rooms are scattered about the lush hillsides whilst some are nestled within a tropical garden a stone's throw from the beach. All have been designed to blend with the natural surroundings. Rooms welcome in the breezes through louvered windows and décor is bright, colourful and locally inspired while the wrap around balconies make the most of the amazing views. There are numerous dining options and locations, including the open-air Treehouse Restaurant and the Indian-inspired Apsara evening.
Located in the south of St Lucia amidst 600 acres of rainforest and surrounded by the Piton peaks. Approximately 40 minutes drive from the airport.
- A choice of seven dining options
- Beachside spa
- Yoga classes
Activities include sailing, kayaking, biking and trekking, but a highlight is the world-class snorkelling and diving available just off shore. Birdlife around the resort is diverse and for keen birders it is possible to venture further into the island. Alternatively, for those who wish to just kick back and relax, there are plenty of hammocks dotted around to recline in.
Why we like it
The views alone are magical but we love the old school Caribbean vibe of this hotel. The décor is not subtle but it’s fun and there is a real emphasis on great service. The snorkelling just off the beach is also hard to beat.
