Let us be your guide for romance in St. Lucia.
1. Stay at a romantic couple’s resort.
St. Lucia is known for their luxury resorts and has several that cater to couples in particular. Consider staying at Rendezvous, the All Inclusive Resort for Couples. This romantic resort has been serving couples since 1966. They provide a personalized experience for couples who want to enjoy each other and escape the stresses and strains of life. Rendezvous is well known for their candlelit beach dining and their lazy river, which meanders around the resort and creates pockets of privacy where couples can enjoy their time together undisturbed.

Rendezvous is the most coveted couples resort on island and will cater to almost any request to make the couple’s vacation personalized just to them.
2. St. Lucia by Sea
If you want to see the island from a different perspective, consider chartering a yacht. It’s one of the most romantic ways to tour the island. Luxury yachts and island tours will make you feel like you’ve escaped the world and all of the everyday stresses and strains that have become all too common. With the gentle breeze against your face and a private tour of the most romantic island in the Caribbean, you’ll know what it means to be in paradise.

There’s nothing like viewing St. Lucia from a bird’s eye view. It can be truly awe-inspiring to get an aerial view of the lush vegetation at sunrise or sunset. This is usually a bonding moment for couples and can be a prelude to a romantic evening. Best yet, transportation by helicopter is actually one of the best ways to get around St. Lucia. Your trip from the airport to your resort can be upwards of an hour cab ride away. Because of that, most all-inclusive resorts will offer private helicopter transportation for a low cost. We recommend starting your vacation off right, and when in St. Lucia – ask the resort about helicopter transportation to your room.

Dining on island is nothing short of a 5 star experience. Many restaurants in St. Lucia provide an extravagant and romantic experience. Restaurants on island tend of focus on non-processed, organic foods – many of which are grown at the resorts themselves. When dining in St. Lucia, we recommend a dinner under the stars at Cap Maison’s Cliff, Dashenne at Ladera, or TAO at the BodyHoliday LeSport. A sunset dinner on the beach at one of these great restaurants is definitely a must do when in St. Lucia.
Couples can feel rejuvenated and refreshed after a lovely day at Rainforest Spa at Sugar Beach. This Viceroy Resort is nestled in Saint Lucia’s World Heritage-listed Pitons.
