Where heaven meets earth. The Jalousie resort in Saint Lucia’s Val des Pitons is on the edge of a protected rain forest. It occupies 320 lush acres of a valley that sweeps dramatically down to Forbidden Beach. A protected underwater park attracts divers from all around the world. UNESCO has named the twin Pitons that stand like sentinels on either side of the valley a World Heritage Site. And Oprah Magazine says that of the five things you must do in your lifetime, a visit to the Pitons is Number One.
Most of the resort’s accommodation is in clusters of spacious villas with mountain and ocean vistas. Deep green crashes down the mountainsides. It’s a little like living in the heart of the earth’s first landscape. Legend has it that the Pitons guard the secret of creation.
There are four restaurants on the property. The elegant Palm Court Piano Bar is the place to meet other guests for a cocktail and enjoy the sunset over the ocean. The beautifully appointed Plantation Room is the resort’s fine dining, air-conditioned restaurant, and the Pier and Bayside provide less formal options on the waterfront. Sailing, windsurfing and kite boarding provide sunny amusement. The diving and snorkeling are simply fantastic.
There is a fully equipped gym and a full-service spa. Soft adventure treks in the rain forest take you walking up a river, jumping off a waterfall, and abseiling down cliffs. This mixture of elegance and dream-like paradise is perfect for people who want to get away from it all in style.

The first boutique hotel for couples. The all-couples Rendezvous resort in Saint Lucia started out as a family home on beautiful Malabar Beach. Lionel, the butler would play the practical joke of serving passing travelers drinks and snacks, pretending the house was a beach resort. In the fifties, a few guest cottages were built around the house and the island’s most beautiful garden-by-the-sea hotel got its start.
Saint Lucia and the family home have come a long way since, but Rendezvous retains the intimate ambiance and style of a boutique hotel. With only a hundred rooms and a high staff-to-guest ratio, it is unlike any other couples-only hotel in the Caribbean.
Nothing is more inspiring than a great couple. And all great couples deserve a special place in the sun to rediscover each other. Manager Nigel Theophilus says: “Some couples-only holidays get in your face, Rendezvous gets in your heart.”
Rooms come in a variety of styles and furnishings. After a recent $7,000,000 investment, all are first class, and all set the stage for romance.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Want a special candle-lit dinner for two on the beach? No problem. Need a snack to take on a picnic? Just ask and it’s as good as done.
There’s lots to do: two pools (one with a swim-up bar), scuba, sailing, wind surfing, tennis, archery, volleyball, and a fully-equipped gym. The longest beach on the island makes for great walking and moonlight strolls. Wonderfully prepared food helps the process of romance and Rendezvous rises to the occasion with two good restaurants. With everything on the house, including drinks, Rendezvous liberates the couple from the tyranny of money. It is an escape for romantics.

Perched on a forested ridge high above the glittering waters of Anse des Pitons, Ladera is as beautiful as the scenery which surrounds it. St. Lucia is known for its inspiring scenery, but at Ladera you are actually part of the landscape — nearly close enough to reach out and touch
both of the Pitons. Throughout the resort, the unifying element is the vista. Every bedroom is truly a room with a view. Each suite was intentionally designed without a fourth wall, affording unobstructed panoramas of the sea, the dramatic Pitons and the rainforest. Guests can slip into their beautifully landscaped private plunge pool and enjoy the surroundings. The all-new Ti Kai Posé spa offers guests a selection of Caribbean-inspired treatments in an intimate setting beside the rainforest. Ladera’s commitment to authenticity is evident in all areas of the resort, from the innovative local dishes at Dasheene Restaurant, to the Caribbean timbers, stone and tile work used in the guestrooms. Add to that the warm, Caribbean hospitality delivered by the entire staff and you have the essence of Ladera – an unsurpassed experience not to be missed.

All a body could ask for. Seventeen years ago, when St. Lucian hotelier Craig Barnard sought a concept for a new kind of holiday, his answer was to combine the pleasures of a first-class beach holiday with the wellness programmes of a European spa. The result is The BodyHoliday at LeSPORT, the world’s first wellness holiday. It opened in 1989 and it remains in a class by itself. ‘Give us your body for a week and we’ll give you back your mind’ is more than a slogan; it’s the promise the resort goes all out to live up to.
Start by treating your body to a full menu land and water sports with included instruction. Even green fees are complimentary on the championship 18-hole golf course overlooking the Caribbean. The Health & Well Being Centre in the Oasis Spa is the most comprehensive centre of wellness in the Americas. Professionals administer Thalassotherapy and other rejuvenating treatments, including many kinds of massage, wraps, exfoliation, detoxification along with motivational exercise. The new MediSpa’s Specialist Skin and Beauty Services propose Botox and other cosmetic medicine treatments to help with acne, aging of the skin, cellulite, and weight management. This holistic approach to health and well-being continues with instruction in yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, and exercise classes. The spa offers an hour of complimentary treatments daily.
