Luxury in the Caribbean

Monday, December 03, 2012

Looking for something a little more luxurious? Or in this case a whole lot more luxurious. The island of Saint Lucia has so much to offer with its beautiful rainforests, exotic sea life and all-inclusive hotels; it’s a perfect combination of bliss and adventure. With cheap Caribbean holidays available from holiday hypermarket – why not take a visit to the enchanted island of Saint Lucia? Expect to see and experience a whole new world of culture and landscape.

Saint Lucia is the ‘Neverland’ of the Caribbean with its famous coastal mountains (named the ‘Pitons’) and green landscape; be sure to take a tour around the island to experience the diverse wildlife and scenery. Waterfalls, banana plantations and fishing villages are just some of what can be seen around the coast. There are many different ways to see the island whether it be on foot, by boat or something a little more thrilling – perhaps zip lining through the rainforest, going on a Segway tour or taking an aerial tram is a little more suited to your tastes. Whatever way you decide to see the island, you won’t be disappointed.

With so much to see and do, what about when it’s time to relax? Many hotels offer a number of spa packages and relaxation techniques which go beyond what you can discover at home, from aroma stone massages to Hawain Lomi Lomi. If that doesn’t take your fancy, then what about relaxing by the infinity pool and sipping on your favourite cocktail? As you can imagine, Saint Lucia is one of the top destinations for honeymoons and weddings, but whether you dream of romance, relaxation or adventure, there is something to suit everyone.

Whether it has been a long day of water sports or soaking up the sun, you will have no doubt worked up a good appetite. Many of the restaurants offer meals which have been made using local produce: sample fresh fish and Caribbean spices, not to mention the exotic fruit smoothies. The variety of dining options available makes picking a restaurant no easy decision, but perhaps what might sway your decision is the location, with many of the coastal restaurants offering exceptional views, best to arrive during sunset for a memorable and romantic evening.

As with most Caribbean Islands, you can expect hot and humid weather. Due to its proximity to the equator St.Lucia does not have defined seasons. However, there is a rainy season which usually falls between June and November. Be aware that it is possible for hurricanes to occur during this season, so be sure to check the weather and storm predictions before booking. With that checked off your list, it’s time to pack your passport and snorkel and get ready for an experience like no other.
