St Lucia

Most Romantic Island in Western Hemisphere

Saint Lucia is the perfect destination, whether you’re after romance, rejuvenation or adventure. A genuine, natural landscape of gorgeous palm-fringed beaches, miles of unspoiled rainforest and the majestic Piton Mountains, are sure to indulge every taste. Natural waterfalls, breath-taking views, friendly locals and authentic culture impress the most travelled individuals for a holiday with lasting memories.

The perfection of this escape should be shared. Tropical weather, welcoming accommodations, and unexpected adventures await all who travel to this paradise island. Romance can be found at upmarket resorts and intimate inns. Bask together under the Caribbean sun, sail into a champagne sunset, and cuddle beneath the vast starry sky. Discover new romance and re-spark old love over a candlelight dinner on a secluded beach.

Destination Tips and Features

St Lucia is frequently described as “the Hawaii of the Caribbean”. The dramatic volcanic scenery at every turn + lush tropical foliage courtesy of frequent precipitation (a small island with rain forests = lush) insures a rare beauty found in few places.The vibe is similar to other Caribbean islands such as Jamaica or Barbados but with a different feel . Although most towns have French names English is the language of the island.

St Lucia is famous for 3 walled suites – open air with unobstructed views of The Pitons and surrounding rain forests. These dramatic suites are truly incredible but other charming boutique resorts are plentiful, as are excellent all-inclusive resort options. In short, St Lucia is widely regarded as the most romantic destination in the Western Hemisphere
