The Sandals Grande St Lucian is designed to give you the feeling of basking in well-earned luxury, from the moment you arrive and are personally welcomed with cocktails, and cold towels infused with lemongrass. This is an exceptionally elegant and stylish resort, its picture-postcard location on a peninsula, at the foot of awe-inspiring volcanic mountains, just setting the scene for the delightful colonial ambience of the buildings. There are 301 rooms and suites, but the elegance is encapsulated most of all in the 18 Grande Rondoval suites — circular cottages on the beach, with private plunge pools and whirlpools, natural stone interiors, soaring conical roofs, and bathrooms with Roman tubs. And there are 24 lagoon swim-up rooms as well.
Of the 8 gourmet dining options, the most alluring is Gordon’s, right over the water at the end of the pier, offering true connoisseur dining exclusively for those in butler accommodation. At night, guests can gather with their drinks around the romantic fire-pit, and enjoy a wide range of entertainments including fire dancers, acrobatic performances and live bands. The resort offers several wedding packages to make the most of the stunning surroundings, including the popular Beautiful Beginnings, for those choosing a small and intimate ceremony.
