Discover Caribbean Paradise With Sandals Resorts


Sponsored features

Covered by lush rainforest, Saint Lucia is an exotic gem in the Caribbean – with three Luxury Included® Sandals Resorts and a fourth coming soon, this island is ready to fulfill your every whim.

From the volcanic peaks of the Pitons, to the dazzling Diamond Falls, Saint Lucia is pure photo-album gold. For feeling at one with nature, 19,000 acres of National Rainforest – filled with vivid flowering vines and more than 30 species of tropical birds – is hard to match anywhere in the Caribbean. And for feeling at one with yourself, the island’s sleepy pace and non-stop sunshine are the perfect antidotes to the challenges of everyday modern life.

Britain and France vied with each other to control this eastern Caribbean gem for nearly 200 years and the influences of both colonial powers are still visible, not least in the local Creole dialect and cuisine. But the ultimate winners today are the warm, welcoming Saint Lucians themselves, plus the thousands of sun-seeking visitors who fly in across the turquoise sea for the breathtaking scenery and beautiful beaches – many featuring the island’s signature dark volcanic sands.

Saint Lucia is an island begging to be explored, so grab a map and put a ring around capital Castries, with its bustling markets, and Marigot Bay, less than four miles away, with its yachts bobbing in the marina. Pigeon Island in Rodney Bay was once a standalone island, now joined to the rest by a causeway, while the bustling seafront of Soufrière in the south is in the shadow of the dramatic Piton peaks.

New resort coming soon


Saint Lucia is already home to three Luxury Included® Sandals resorts, with a fourth – Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia – breaking ground this spring. Its highlights will hit you from the moment you arrive; a wow-factor open lobby featuring a multi-purpose, state- of-the-art ‘Living Room’ with speciality piano bar, bowling and games. There will also be an infinity-edge sky pool bar offering picturesque views of the island’s north coast, exotic SkyPool Butler Suites, and all-butler signature swim-up Rondoval Suites. Not forgetting an elaborate entertainment package that includes a main stage with a 20-foot LED screen and a mobile DJ party scene.

This latest arrival, on 19 acres of land next to Sandals Grande St. Lucian Resort, means you will have the option of ‘Staying-at-One, Playing-at-Four’ across the island.

Sometimes, lazing around the pool or chilling in a Jacuzzi is the perfect take- it-slow agenda; other days, you may feel the need for a rush of adrenaline. Not surprisingly, the resorts all capitalise on their fabulous beachfront location. With the Caribbean’s

most comprehensive scuba diving programme (free for certified divers) and a huge range of water-based activities* – including complimentary lessons – there’s no excuse for not giving them a go! Stretch those muscles  after a long swing in a hammock with nine holes of golf** or enjoy the many land activities that Sandals includes, from beach volleyball to night tennis or a leisurely game of lawn chess. There’s no pressure to do anything if you don’t want to, but plenty of choice when you do.

Take luxury to a whole new level by booking one of nine new Over-the- Water Honeymoon Butler Bungalows at Sandals Grande St. Lucian, launching this spring. So what makes them so special? Well, glass floor panels, a private outdoor Tranquility Soaking TubTM, and over-water hammocks for starters, plus the private patio comes with an extended sun deck, outdoor shower, sun loungers and Butler Elite service to take care of every last detail.
