This peaceful and charming retreat is perched in hillside gardens overlooking Castries.

If you prefer a relaxing holiday surrounded by tropical gardens and wildlife rather than the hustle and bustle of larger resorts on the beachfront then this hotel is a great choice. Soak up the serene ambience of the beautifully tended gardens, which attract exotic birds, and admire the far-reaching views over Castries to the sea beyond. The friendly staff go out of their way to make you feel at home and are one of the many reasons why guests return to this intimate hotel time and time again.

Sun loungers are scattered under the palm trees on the lawn and there are parasols around both of the pools; you might prefer to head up to the rooftop lounge to catch some rays while enjoying the views and sipping cocktails. While the vibe here is peaceful relaxation there’s a choice of daily activities to keep you entertained, from Pilates, aqua aerobics and dance classes to a weekly manager's cocktail party and rum tasting sessions. Take advantage of the complimentary shuttle bus operating five days a week, and spend the day relaxing on the beach or exploring Castries, the island's vibrant capital.

The Verandah Restaurant serves buffet meals with regular themed nights and the terrace is a lovely spot for dinner with the lights of Castries providing a twinkling backdrop. If you’re lounging by the pool you can enjoy snacks and drinks from the poolside Cabana Lounge Bar & Eatery. You can help yourself to teas and coffee throughout the day and enjoy tasty sandwiches and scones when afternoon tea is served.

The Garden Bungalows are conveniently located close to the main restaurant and pool, and feature French doors which open onto a terrace overlooking the gardens. The rooms are located in the main building and have a balcony overlooking the gardens or sea. It’s worth splashing out on one of the Ocean View Rooms which have a privileged setting on the higher floors and panoramic sea views.
