Renowned for its enchanting landscapes, excellent hotels, and the generous spirit of its residents, Saint Lucia is a destination that awakens the senses and warms the heart. An island that is perfect for lovers or families from the four corners of the globe.

As proof of its exceptional individuality, Saint Lucia won two top honors at the recent World Travel Awards in October and November 2021 respectively: The Caribbean’s Best Honeymoon Destination and World’s Best Honeymoon Destination. The island was competing against some of the most romantic spots on the planet, such as the Maldives, Mauritius, Paris, Hawaii, and The Seychelles. This marks the 13th time that Saint Lucia has taken first place in this category since 1998. “This award, especially in the challenging times in which we are living, reflects the resilience and perseverance of our population and the results of hard work by all those involved in the tourism sector,” notes Dr. Ernest Hilaire, Saint Lucia’s Minister of Tourism, Investment, Creative Industries, Culture, and Information.

PERSONALIZED ~ Without a doubt, the island has many charming assets and hotels that stand out from the crowd. Did you know that Saint Lucia is home to one of the five most expensive hotels in the world—a submarine with underwater rooms that rent for $175,000 per night! But alongside this haute couture hotel, there is a diverse choice of accommodations from an auberge to 5-star, from conventional to high-design, from the most traditional to the most innovative, all inviting and comfortable. The hotel experience in Saint Lucia is like being immersed in a personalize cocoon, with varying levels of amenities: cottages with private pools, individual beachfront villas, luxury suites with hot tub, rooms with ocean or mountain views… For those who seek something really simple, the island has a palette of alternative options, from guest houses to eco-lodges surrounded by nature. A few places are adult-only, affording privacy and serenity for a romantic interlude or the perfect honeymoon.

GO ON AN ADVENTURE ~ Some couples are so happy nesting in their hotel that they prefer it to any other experience on the island. But others plunge head first into the postcard-pretty landscapes that unfold before them, encompassing beautiful beaches with sand ranging from golden hues to volcanic gray. And there are those seeking adventure who can leave the beaten track for more secluded hiking trails. The most adventurous set out to conquer the Gros Piton and Petit Piton, the island’s emblematic volcanic cones, which tower over the coastline. They are part of a volcanic mountain chain, the Qualibou, also known as the Soufrière Volcanic Center, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. They peak at heights of 786 meters and 743 meters respectively, while their hot, sulfuric springs attest to their continued activity. At their summits, the reward is worth the effort when you see the majestic panorama of the island. A romantic adventure for intrepid couples.

AUTHENTICITY ~ Those who love nature will find more than a hundred varieties of plants and 20 species of birds nesting on the Pitons. At the foot of these peaks, an exceptional marine ecosystem harbors an immense coral reef where more than 200 species of fish in every color of the rainbow can be seen by divers. Saint Lucia has a lot of special spots for lovers: Anse Chastanet, Anse la Raye, and The Key Hole Pinnacles have spectacular views. Those who prefer driving to hiking can make stops in numerous little villages on the island. In following the coast toward the south, one encounters places that have preserved their charm: villages with small Creole houses, scenes of traditional fishing, exceptional panoramas for romantic sunsets, or fêtes that range from laidback to frenetic, unbridled fun at Gros islet. Saint Lucia is an island where one can relax, have a good time, rejuvenate… it can also a place to gather together….

A DREAM DESTINATION FOR FAMILIES ~ The charm of the island also appeals to vacationers in a group. The hotels in Saint Lucia are known for the family-friendly infrastructures, especially kids’ clubs. The perfect moment for couples to enjoy a few moments alone while the little ones live their own experiences under the watchful eye of the experienced staff: indoor and outdoor games, film projections, or creative ateliers that provide an opportunity to meet kids from all over. For two or for a group, Saint Lucia is one of the world’s most seductive destinations, where everyone can create their own travel experience. Many stars would agree, such as Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman, and Benjamin Millepied, and well as Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid, and Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso, who recently visited the island to renew their marriage vows.
