St. Lucia Feature


Small Hotels and Inns in St. Lucia

Choose one of these smaller properties if you're looking for something more intimate than the typical beach resort.

Greater Castries

Auberge Seraphine. $ Convenient to town and a good choice for independent travelers who don't require a beachfront location or a breadth of activities. Excellent restaurant, and all but six rooms have a water view. A broad sundeck surrounds a small pool. Vielle Bay, Pointe Seraphine, Castries 758/453–2073

Villa Beach Cottages. $ This family establishment's cottages line the beach—they were once a vacation destination of Nobel laureate Sir Derek Walcott. Units are cozy and fairly close together, but each has a balcony facing the water, guaranteeing glorious sunset viewing every evening. Choc Bay, Castries 758/450–2884

Marigot Bay

Inn on the Bay. $ If you stay in one of this inn's five rooms (for adults only), the owners will treat you as their personal guest. Cool sea breezes obviate the need for a/c, and the stunning views of Marigot Bay are absolutely enchanting from the balcony outside your room and from the pool deck. Marigot Bay 758/451–4260

Mango Beach Inn. $ A family-friendly bed-and-breakfast perched on the hillside above Rainforest Hideaway and overlooking pretty Marigot Bay. The five guest rooms are comfortable but small, though the living–dining room, which is always open to guests, is huge and has large windows open to the view—beautiful day or night. Marigot Bay 758/458–3188

Rodney Bay Village

Ginger Lily. $ A small, modern group of 11 rooms that have their own restaurant and a swimming pool. It is across the street from Reduit Beach and perfectly situated in Rodney Bay Village. Rodney Bay 758/458–0300

Harmony Suites. $. The guests (adults only) here are scuba divers, boaters, or people who just like being close to Rodney Bay Marina. Of the 30 large suites clustered around the swimming pool, the eight waterfront suites are the largest. Reduit Beach is across the road. Rodney Bay 758/452–8756


Fond Doux Holiday Plantation. $ A collection of a dozen historic homes salvaged from around the island and rebuilt in a rain-forest setting on an active 18th-century agricultural estate. The private, beautifully furnished cottages provide a truly ecofriendly vacation experience. Soufri ère 758/459–7545

La Haut Plantation. $ This intimate, affordable, family-run inn boasts a spectacular view of the Pitons. Guests are encouraged to roam the 52-acre mountaintop estate, and kids get a kick out of the resident goats, cows, birds, and donkeys. Soufri ère 758/459–7008
