Sandals Halcyon Beach is the smallest, quietest and most intimate of the three Sandals resorts on St Lucia, and so is often chosen by couples seeking a tranquil environment for a wedding, honeymoon, or just a peaceful retreat. They certainly find it here, in the secret gardens filled with fragrant flowers, luxuriant foliage and serene waters, within which the resort buildings blend discreetly into the palm-fringed shoreline, no building higher than the tallest tree. All the 169 guest-rooms, crafted from coral rock, are in low-rise blocks within the gardens, surrounded by pink and purple bougainvilleas, with the Beachfront Luxury Walkout Club Level rooms located just steps from the beach.
The peaceful charm is intensified by English-style afternoon tea, served daily at the Paradise Pool. In the evening, guests can choose from four acclaimed restaurants, including international fare by the water at the Bayside, and exhilarating and romantic seafood dining at Kelly’s Dockside, otherwise known as The Pier, right over the water at the end of a 150-foot-long pier. The soothing ambience and relaxing lifestyle are perpetuated by live piano playing every night, as well as ballroom dancing, jazz concerts, or just sipping punch on soft couches by the fire-pit.
