The island excels in luxury spa hotels and is home to the BodyHoliday and the Ladera.

Relax on the beach

St Lucia is the Caribbean as you imagine it - white sand beaches, palm trees and piña coladas. There are few experiences more pleasurable than an afternoon spent on a sun lounger, the sound of the surf in the distance and the scent of sun cream in the air. Should you be in the mood for something more lively, you can charter a boat and explore some of the island’s hidden coves.
