On 19 acres along the Pigeon Point Causeway at the northern edge of Rodney Bay, this villa resort surrounds a private, 80-slip harbor where residents can dock their own yachts, literally, at their doorstep. About half of the 231 waterfront units may be rented for short-term stays; they range in size from 900 to 2,300 square feet, and half have their own plunge pools. Each unit has a beautifully appointed living room, dining room, and kitchen, as well as one, two, or three bedrooms with en suite baths and an enormous balcony or terrace. Naturally, the atmosphere is particularly conducive to yachting and boating, but landlubbers will find plenty to do: partaking of the 7,000-square-foot Soleil Spa, socializing at the lobby bar in the Grand Pavilion, and soaking up the sun at the beach club or at one of the pools. You can prepare your own meals, grab a snack at the gourmet deli, have a light meal on the pier at the open-air Beach Club restaurant, or dine at the high-end Palms. Guests also get preferred tee times at the nearby St. Lucia Golf Resort & Country Club.
