Be sure to read the room descriptions at Anse Chastanet, Ti Kaye, and Ladera (and also Mago Estate if it's still open). When I planned a trip to St. Lucia back in March of 2006, I loved the look of all of those properties, and they got terrific reviews, but the fact that their rooms didn't contain four traditional walls (one wall was open to the elements, or at least the bathroom was open-air) ruled them out for me. That's just me, though - I'm a little squeamish about insects and wildlife in my room, especially during the night. Many others on this board love being that close to nature. It's just something that I thought you might want to consider.

I posted some questions on your Just Back From St. Lucia. It was very informational! Thanks!

Now that's a very good point. I was enamored by the look of the rooms with three walls, but I wonder how much I would like it at night since I too am a bit squeamish with bugs...as is the groom!

Ladera is certainly one of the best options, it is a beautiful and intimate resort and surprisingly you don't experience issues with bugs thanks to the design of the rooms. You can also book accommodation with more than one bedroom which may be useful considering the size of your group. It is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the island and is complimented by the lovely open air Dasheene restaurant.

You should check out www.birdsofparadiseevents.com. They are a London based company but may be able to assist you.

You certainly won't regret choosing St Lucia, it really is a spectacular island!

Ivonne- Thanks for recommendation. However, my daughter is kind of nature girl and was looking for something more remote than Sandals; it is more commercial than she is envisioning for her big day.

Hello All-
I haven't posted in a while because we have been researching all resorts St. Lucia. It is down to two: (Drum roll) TiKaye and Jalousie Plantation! We may end up going with Jalousie simply because, try as we might, we CANNOT get anyone of authority on the phone at TiKaye. We have received some email from them but when we try to contact them to negotiate specific points, they absolutely refuse to let us speak to the mysterious "Katie" on the phone so there's no opportunity for nailing anything down.
So what's your opinion between the two? Please vote now!

Hi, I haven't been to either, although Jalousie is on my bucket list as I hear the location is just spectacular. But I will say, if you are frustrated now by the lack of communication/responsiveness from TiKaye, you will probably continue to be frustrated and who needs more stress during a very stressful time? If it was my daughter, I'd go with Jalousie!
