Ti Kaye Village Review

Rustic elegance is not an oxymoron, at least at this upscale cottage community on the hillside above Anse Cochon beach. Negotiating a mile and a half of pockmarked, winding dirt road is required to access Ti Kaye from the main road; but when you arrive, all that is forgotten—honeymooners, divers, and couples looking for a quiet escape all love it. Gingerbread-style cottages surrounded by lush greenery and furnished with handcrafted furniture have unparalleled ocean views from their private porches (each with a double hammock). Each room has a private garden shower, a huge walk-in closet, and wooden louvers in doors and windows to catch every breeze; some have private plunge pools. Or you can negotiate the 166 steps down the cliff to the beach, wich is part of the National Marine Reserve and one of the best snorkeling sites in St. Lucia. Island Divers, a full-service dive shop, is on-site. Kai Manje (Creole for "house of eating") serves fabulous food on a breezy terrace—which is a good thing, since the location is so remote. Lunch is available at the Ti Manje beach bar. The icing on the cake: the Kai Koko spa offers divine Balinese-inspired treatments using locally formulated products.
