What will we do?
Not sure how to spend your vacation? Here’s an itinerary that represents how many of our guests spend their vacation.
Arrival day (Airport)
✦ Junior (or his driver, Billy) greets you at the airport and gets you settled in his comfortable vehicle. If you are famished, stop at the Reef Restaurant for a snack and a drink and enjoy your toes in the sand.
✦ Then on to Uptown’s Liquors to pick up some “adult beverages”. Next, the grocery in La Tourney for snacks and sodas, and “real” groceries if you plan on doing a lot of your own cooking.
✦ Settle back and enjoy the ride and the views. You’ll be especially glad you aren’t driving when you get to the last 10 minutes and the infamous Anse Chastanet Road!
✦ While our driver carries your luggage to your rooms, savor Doxie’s rum punch. As the sun sets over the Caribbean and dusk creeps across the sky, enjoy Doxie’s roti for dinner while you relax and already start to wish you never have to leave!
First day (Anse Chastanet)
✦ Hire Doxie to cook the breakfast groceries we left for you, then walk up the road to the top for a panoramic view of Soufriere and the Pitons.
✦ Pack up the beach gear and a cooler of Piton beers, and head to Anse Chastanet beach. Soak up the sun, do some snorkeling, then cool off with a cold beer.
✦ Junior picks you up from the beach around 5 pm and takes you back to the villa. Dinner is waiting for you, since you arranged with Doxie when you arrived to have her make you dinner this evening.
Second day (Zone 1)
✦ Junior picks you up in the morning and takes you to the Soufriere dock where you get on a catamaran for a whale and dolphin-watching tour with Mystic Man or a half-day sail with Mario from Sugar Boat charters.
✦ When he picks you up, stop at the grocery to replenish your supply of drinks and snacks, then head back to the villa and have Doxie’s roti for lunch. Relax by the pool for the afternoon.
✦ Get dressed and go to Dasheene at about 4:30 to have a beverage and some appetizers while watching the sun set between the Pitons.
✦ Stay at Dasheene for dinner, and arrive back at the villa after dark for a nightcap and to watch for shooting stars.
Third day (Zone 3)
✦ Get picked up about 8:30 AM and head to the north of the island. Visit the craft market in Castries or do a little duty-free shopping in Pointe Seraphine then have lunch at the Pink Plantation overlooking Castries.
✦ After lunch, hop on a Segway for a tour of the hills overlooking Rodney Bay, or stroll among the ruins on Pigeon Island. Scramble to the top of Signal Hill to get a glimpse of Martinique and take a selfie.
✦ Have dinner at Spice of India in Rodney Bay (or Amici for Italian food), and get back late.
✦ If you prefer, you can go to/from the north by boat. Sugar Boat charters has a good day sail to Castries/the north. (Zone 3 price is not valid for this option.)
"Stairway to Heaven" at Tet Paul Nature Trail
Fourth day (Anse Chastanet)
✦ Sleep in a little, then have a light breakfast. Pack up a cooler with cold Piton beers and some food, grab the snorkel gear, the beach umbrella and chairs, and have Junior take you to Anse Chastanet.
✦ Stop at the Scuba St Lucia hut and arrange a tour through the Anse Mamin ruins. Walk to Anse Mamin beach (about 5 minutes) for your hiking or biking tour. Prefer a water activity? Snorkel, swim, or just relax and soak up the sun. If you didn’t pack lunch, have a burger at the Jungle Grill on Anse Mamin.
✦ After getting back to the villa late afternoon, relax and have some rum punch. Enjoy the multi-course dinner Doxie made for you.
Fifth day (Zone 1)
✦ Pack up the snorkel gear and your camera, and head out around 9AM for the Tet Paul Nature Trail. Next stop is a trip to the drive-in volcano and the mud baths and a waterfall.
✦ Stop at Fedo’s for authentic St Lucian cooking for lunch, then take a water taxi to Sugar Beach (cost not included) for beautiful white sand and snorkeling between the Pitons.
✦ Back to the villa late afternoon, clean up, and then off to Rabot for dinner and a sumptuous chocolate lava cake for dessert, made with local cocoa, and sip on on-site-produced chocolate cream liqueur, if you are lucky.
Sixth day (Zone 1)
✦ Go to Morne Coubaril for zip-lining, a plantation tour, and a lesson in how chocolate is made. Eat lunch at their buffet, Martha’s Tables, or at The Mango Tree restaurant (Stonefield resort).
✦ Get on the Mystic Man sunset cruise (catamaran from Soufriere dock, sail between the Pitons with music, beverages, and hors d’oeuvres while enjoying the sunset), then head back to the villa and enjoy your last night dining on one last delicious dinner made by Doxie (or leftovers!).
Last day (Airport)
✦ Get up early. Savor some freshly-brewed local coffee, and watch the sailboats head to St Vincent over the deep blue Caribbean. Soak up the peacefulness one last time.
✦ Take a few sunrise pictures and maybe even catch a double rainbow during a brief early morning shower. Pack, sadly say goodbye to Doxie and all the rest of our wonderful staff, and head off to the airport. Start planning your trip back while you are having one last Piton beer at the airport.
