Find out why St Lucia is Adriaane’s all-time favourite.

Too mountainous to ever be as developed as Barbados, as lush as Jamaica but so much smaller you could get around the entire island in a day. And poignantly beautiful, with wild flowers everywhere, miles of dry-stone walls, and a faint undertow of melancholy, St Lucia seems populated largely by calm, witty, hardworking people speaking such measured English they sound like elocution teachers. The island also has some of the best hotels in the Caribbean. The BodyHoliday, for instance: an all-inclusive fitness resort. Brilliant! As for Sugar Beach, is there a more spectacularly located hotel on the planet?

St Lucia /When is the best time to visit St Lucia

With its tropical climate and temperatures averaging 24°C, St Lucia is a year-round destination, though the best months to visit are generally from mid-December to May, when the island is drier and less humid. During June to November, the humidity level increases and intense tropical showers or occasional storms may be experienced – excellent offers are usually available during these months. A popular choice for luxury family holidays, St Lucia is usually busy around the school holiday periods; we recommend booking a year in advance, especially for the festive season.

Multi-centre Options

A luxury St Lucia holiday shared between the livelier north of the island and the dramatic south could easily be considered a twin-centre stay in itself. Alternatively, it’s only a very short flight over to the Grenadines for total relaxation, or to Barbados.
