Discover Our Mountain Majesty

Talk show super-star Oprah Winfrey once said that St. Lucia's two majestic volcanic plugs, the fabled twin peaks of Gros Piton and Petit Piton, located south of Soufrière and situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are among the top ten things to have in your "bucket list." We couldn't agree more! Every time returning visitors see the Pitons, they often remark that it seems like they are seeing them for the first time, every sighting is mind-blowing. On a full-day excursion to the Pitons, you can hike all the way to the top, noticing everything from the orchids, the hummingbirds, the butterflies, the canopy of trees and one of the most spectacular views you will ever encounter.

Summertime is Carnival Time

Summertime is Carnival Time

July 03, 2018

Dancing in the streets, daring feathered and beaded costumes, gaily decorated street revelers, fabulous Caribbean food, and the melodious sounds of steel drum music under the summer skies – these are the symbols of celebration for Saint Lucia’s Carnival. Through July 18, join us for a myriad of festive, Carnival-related events, including several competitions, such as the Soca Monarch, Carnival Queen, the Steel Pan Champions, and the Calypso Monarch.

Imaginative and brilliantly-costumed groups of bands will try to outdo themselves with their musical and choreographic skills, with each competing for the top award of Band of the Year. Guests are welcome to join the fun if they wish, or blend in with the crowd along the parade route to cheer on the pomp and grandeur of the bands and the parades. Guests will also find an abundance of parties, during which you can be sure to find jumping and “wining,” a rotational hip movement perfected by Saint Lucians and frequent Carnival attendees. To make your Carnival reservations, call us at (844) 886-3762.
