St. Lucia Resorts and Inns
St. Lucia isn't short on hotels and resorts. Some times it feels like the island is a tad over developed. The advantage of that is that there are plenty of places to stay and some values.
The Anse Chastanet Resort is one of Travel + Leisure's top 25 Caribbean resorts. It's at the high end, price-wise ($350/night and up) but worth the extra pennies (er, pounds). It sits on 600 acres along two of the nicer St. Lucia beaches. Designed by architect Nick Troubetzkoy, the resort is quite beautiful. The resort also has several restaurants. www.ansechastanet.com
Auberge Seraphine is affordable (starting around $100 per night) because it's not directly on a beach. It's still a great place to stay but rent a car so you can get to one of St. Lucia's many beaches. www.aubergeseraphine.com
The Village Inn St Lucia is another option. This is a recently redesigned resort that sits on one of St. Lucia's nicest beaches, Reduit Beach. This hotel is a more affordable option, about $200 per night during high season. www.villageinnstlucia.com
