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.

This Month: The ARC Sets Sail

This Month: The ARC Sets Sail

November 05, 2018

One of the most luxurious ways to experience the pleasures of Saint Lucia is to spend the winter season here. In addition to usual pleasures of enjoying the island’s natural beauty, the shopping, and relaxing at the Spa, there are usually some pretty exciting events going on during the fall and winter seasons, and one of our favorites is the ARC. Yachts from all over the world will set sail from Las Palmas on November 25 and head westward across the Atlantic, heading for the Caribbean, and the adventure of a lifetime.

This largest transoceanic event in the world usually attracts over 200 seaworthy vessels of all shapes and sizes. The 2,700-nautical-miles route usually takes between 2-3 weeks to complete, depending on trade winds and other conditions. Although the finish line doesn’t officially close until mid-to-late-December, most of the craft arrive in Rodney Bay anywhere between the first or second week of the month. So, be sure to mark your calendars now to join us on December 22, when the winners of the 2018 Atlantic Rally for Cruisers will celebrate the end of their journey with rum punches and one epic party.
