Understand That This Is An ECO-Resort & You Will LOVE It

Dallas, Texas

Some of my friends have asked how my hubby and I liked our two nights of “glamping” on Saint Lucia...in my opinion, they are missing half of what this resort is all about. My hubby and I stayed in Paradise Ridge #3 for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a PERFECT choice with the heated pool and the butler service. Of course, the tree frogs are quite noisy at night and we slept under a mosquito net...we expected that. The pleasant surprise was the lack of critters and insects...NO problem. The surroundings are heavenly, however the experience was made perfect by the staff. Our main butler Jenny was SO wonderful as was our evening butler Schol. Shekina in the restaurant was such a sweet hostess and Eva kept our room spotless. The ride from Rodney Bay to the West side of the Southern part of the island to get here is not for the weak of heart nor tummy. You can take a water taxi or a helicopter if you prefer. Two nights were perfect for us, but honeymooners should stay longer.

Top 5 places we’ve ever stayed at

Can’ t rave enough about this place. Everything is perfect starting from the beautiful grounds, amazing views, breathtaking sunsets, nature sounds, lush landscape, mountain& sea views, the heated pools, the chic design of the furniture, etc. Even a few months after visiting this place, my husband and I find ourselves talking frequently about it. It has made quite an impression. You simply have to experience it yourself, videos and photos just don’ t do it justice. Tips: - try one of the heated pool rooms, it will change your experience completely. Totally worth it!! - bring bug-spray. It’ s lush and beautiful but the bugs also love it. - try the restaurant across the resort just for a change.
