Best Resorts to Stay at on St. Lucia

Jade Mountain Resort

Jade Mountain Resort is a five-star hotel offering ocean views over Anse Chastanet Beach. Guests are within walking distance of this beautiful beach, and Soufriere — one of the most popular towns on the island — is just down the road.

Upgraded rooms feature private infinity pools overlooking the surrounding jungles of Bouton and Mamin. If a room with a view is your priority, Jade Mountain Resort is worth your attention.

Cap Maison

Cap Maison is a resort and spa on the north end of the island near Cap Estate. It’s praised for its amazing views over the water and for providing guests access to a private beach.

If you want to step away from the resort experience and connect with the local culture, The Cliff at Cap and Naked Fisherman are two excellent casual restaurants on the coast where you can unwind with a cocktail and some Caribbean food.

Capella Marigot Bay

Capella Marigot Bay is a stunning luxury hotel on the edge of Marigot Bay. In fact, the resort has its own marina where watercraft depart to explore the Caribbean waters.

If you prefer freshwater, you can take a dip in one of the hotel’s two infinity pools. You can also unwind at Capella Marigot Bay’s Auriga Spa or burn some calories at the fitness center.

BodyHoliday Saint Lucia

BodyHoliday Saint Lucia is another five-star option on the north end of the island in Cap Estate. St. Lucia Golf Resort & Country Club is a short drive down the road, and guests also have easy access to Rodney Bay Marina.

The resort boasts five restaurants and bars, and visitors can pick from a range of activities to keep busy. Options include tai chi classes, tennis and archery, water sports, and yoga sessions with a personal trainer.

The Landings St. Lucia

The Landings St. Lucia is a four-star option on Rodney Bay. Pigeon Island Beach is within walking distance, but you’ll find plenty of reasons to not venture far from the hotel.

The Landings St. Lucia has three restaurants, three outdoor pools, two hot tubs, and more. Upgrade to a suite for a room with extra amenities and a fantastic view of the bay.

Ladera Resort

Ladera Resort is another 4-star hotel, but unlike the other recommendations on this list, this resort is a bit inland.

South of Soufriere, Ladera Resort offers pristine views stretching out over the St. Lucia rainforest, covering Petit Piton and Gros Piton, and on to the Caribbean Sea.

The open-air suites and open-air restaurant at this hotel create a spacious and relaxing atmosphere.

  1. The view from Jade looks phenomenal Meg! Crazy how I am from NJ and have never been to the Caribbean but it is true. Folks wonder how I could be here in New Zealand, or Fiji a few years ago, or Bali or Thailand and spend so little time in my backyard. But alas; it is true LOL. I need to spend more time in these gems as well. Shorter flights ;) Thanks for sharing my friend.


    • Doesn’t it!! And yes, that seems to ring true across the board, lol I’ve decided to dedicate this year to discovering more of Australia, because it’s quite embarrassing when I get to other parts of the world and people ask me where I’ve been in Aus, only to admit that I haven’t traveled much of my own country!!

      Hope you have the chance to visit the Caribbean, and St Lucia, soon :)

  2. St. Lucia is definitely one of the most beautiful islands in the world. If you haven’t been there you should go!

    • Totally agree with you! :)

  3. My dream is Jade Mountain Resort – those views from the room look like something out of a fairytale book! And to have a private infinity pool … sign me up! You’re not running a giveaway for a free night are you :D

    • Don’t they! Jade Mountain is an incredible resort, lol we don’t have any giveaways in the works, but perhaps that’s one I can pitch in the future at some point!

  4. I think the only issue with these resorts is that I would never leave see the actual island!!

    • Haha well I definitely can’t blame anyone who decides to spend most of their time enjoying the resorts!

  5. We stayed at Marigot Bay and it was EXCELLENT. We got a bay view room that was perfectly situated over the marina.

    I would recommend booking the all-inclusive dining package, as the food is very expensive otherwise. We don’t actually feel like we saved any money doing the all-inclusive, but since we budgeted it in, it took the pressure off ordering what we wanted and trying everything!

    One thing to note though is that the mosquitos are CRAZY. I came home with no less than 60 bites on my legs. This isn’t a problem for Marigot Bay, but for the entire island. They do give you a small bottle of mosquito spray in the bathroom, which was thoughtful and we used it every time we went out (but apparently did not work for me). If you don’t bring anything else, bring extra spray and hydro-cortisone cream!

    • Thanks for sharing your experience with Marigot Bay, glad to hear you had such an incredible time :)

      And thanks for the tips on the mozzies, yes, sadly tropical climates are a huge problem for that – we always travel with our own DEET, but it’s good to know that the resorts provide little bottles for you.

  6. OMG how do you even begin to choose!!

    • Stay a month and spend a couple of days at each lol then you don’t have to choose :D

  7. Have you been to all of these???!!!! I’m jealous.

    • Hi Alec, we haven’t stayed overnight at every single one of these, but have put together a top list based off local knowledge from the islanders :)

  8. This is incredibly helpful, thankyou Megan. My fiance has chosen St Lucia for our honeymoon but left choosing a resort up to me, so this has just made my job of presenting options a lot quicker and easier!! Cheers.

    • You’re welcome Toby, glad we could help! Congratulations on your engagement too, St Lucia is an incredible choice for a honeymoon :)

  9. Stayed at Jade Mountain for a week in February 2015. Probably the best hotel we’ve ever stayed in. Rooms, views, food and service – everything was on top. We took an all inclusive package which I thought was worth it even though we are not big eaters. Highly recommend the helicopter transfer – great fun.

    • So glad you had such a memorable time Olga – it’s definitely one of those resorts you remember for a lifetime!! The helicopter transfer sounds fun – thanks for the tip!

  10. We had an amazing honeymoon at Jade Mountain – a long review is not even needed as only one word describes it – sensational! Perfect honeymoon, perfect service, perfect view, perfect experience. We can’t wait to go back!

    • Sounds like Jade Mountain is a bit of a favorite from the comments section here – can obviously understand why!! What an incredible place for your honeymoon – good choice! So glad you enjoyed your time. Maybe you could head back for an upcoming anniversary :)

  11. I’m not one who’s able to sit still even if a hotel has sensational views, so BodyHoliday Saint Lucia sounds cool – love that they have so many active adventure offerings. It would be interesting to learn Tai chi.

    • I’m personally very uncoordinated lol but Tai Chi is a lot of fun. BodyHoliday Saint Lucia definitely has enough going on to keep you busy!

  12. Great post! The resorts look amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    • You’re welcome Anna :) Have a great trip!

  13. Very nice

    If you had to choose one??

    • Jade Mountain Resort would probably be my favorite :)

    • Seems they have two airports

      Should we use UVF or SLU

      Thanks again

    • I woudl fly into Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) – it’s the closest to Jade Mountain, and if you have the cash to splurge you can take a 10 minute helicopter ride from the airport to the resot which is a pretty memorable way to arrive! Otherwise it’s an hour by car or taxi. SLU is about an hour and a half from the resort, so only half an hour difference which isn’t too bad if you found there were better flight routes from where you’re flying :)
