In spite of its bountiful beauty, where verdant mountains provide a majestic backdrop to white sand beaches and crystalline waters, the locals of St Lucia take it all in their stride. This coupling of the laid-back attitude of the St. Lucians, and stunning scenery of this friendly nation make this captivating Caribbean island the perfect spot for indulgent, carefree holidays. In the north of St Lucia, you'll find the delightful Rodney Bay, which plays host to many all-inclusive luxury retreats. Spend your days receiving spa treatments, enjoy a la carte dining, and participate in seasonal adventure programs. Synonymous with romance, this part of the island also promises barefoot beach walks, private outdoor showers, candlelit dinners, and Champagne sunsets. To the south, Soufrière is where St Lucia's geographical chops are on display, with attractions like old plantations, hidden beaches, and the remarkable Piton Mountains. The town itself is typically West Indian, where colonial-era buildings pale into insignificance against the breathtaking jungle vista that rises up behind them. For a warm and welcoming luxury holiday, St Lucia is a tough one to beat.
