Saint Lucia
  • Traveled with Air Canada
  • Overall tips What a tropical paradise! the roads stink but that is about where any issues end. we stayed the whole time at the hotel but fell in love with that part of it - the Pitons, the people! Can't wait to return!
Accommodation
  • Anse Chastanet Resort, St Lucia
    Old French Road, St. Lucia
    Truly an unforgettable hotel. The owners and the staff go out of their way to get to know you and make you feel at home. If you want to be left alone, not a problem. The food was amazing and definitely do the all inclusive - this is not some crazy AI resort - the food is 5 star

    • Petit Piton
      Belle Vue, St Lucia
      We took a morning trip from the hotel and climbed the mountain. Well worth it but make sure you are fit. It is a UNESCO world heritage site so don't just stare at it - climb it too!
      • Mountain Bike riding
        The hotel is on an old chocolate plantation and they have carved out mountain bike trails. We spent some time riding through and then got a tour of whats left of the site and learned how they made chocolate - pretty cool!

Saint Lucia

    • Two beaches!
      One of the cool things about the hotel is there is the main beach, which is very nice, but they also have Anse Mamin, another beach. you can swim to it or hike over. There is a laid back grill and the guy grilling was hysterical and the food was top notch. Fun way to spend the afternoon
