Simon dropped us off at the resort and then we were picked up in a little “tuk-tuk” which took us to our cottage and would be our main form of transportation around the resort. There are hills everywhere in this part of the island- and I mean steep hills- so there wasn’t much walking around this place. When we arrived, our butler was waiting for us with some drinks and lavender scented cold towels, yes please! He then gave us a little tour of our cottage, which was absolutely gorgeous. All white everything with dark hardwoods with quite possibly the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in.
We had lots of goodies in our fridge as well as snacks and a fruit plate when we arrived. Shortly after, our butler brought us a bottle of champagne which we popped before dinner. He also gave us our little “baby phones” which we could use to reach them at any time. Whenever we needed a ride down to the beach or to dinner, we would call and the tuk-tuk would be there in a flash.
We spent most days down at the beach. The thing about St. Lucia is that there aren’t that many beaches, or at least the southwest part of the island, so I’m glad we had direct access at our resort. We loved the comfy daybeds down at the beach and we both finished reading two books under the little huts. And there was even Wi-Fi at the beach which was pretty nice! And I can’t forget the cute little “coconut man” who walked around every day selling his fresh coconuts.
The infinity pool was huge and was the perfect place to lounge. And yes, I brought this giant pineapple float with me all the way to St. Lucia. I just had to! And as you can tell, Ryan enjoyed it too 🙂
Obviously I can’t speak for the whole island, but if you’re planning a trip to St. Lucia, I highly highly recommend this resort. We know several other couples that have been and we picked it based on personal recommendations so… here is yours! Our stay was so relaxing, our butler was always a phone call away, and the surroundings were beyond beautiful. Being right by the beach and between the two Pitons was perfect. And here’s a fun fact, Oprah has a residence at Sugar Beach.
