Best Adults-Only Resorts in St. Lucia
Hideaway at Royalton St. Lucia
Gros Islet, St Lucia
Hideaway at Royalton is a resort within a resort, as it’s the adults-only section of the Royalton St. Lucia. While Hideaway guests can take advantage of everything at the main resort, they have their own exclusive infinity pool, beach bar, beach area and an upgraded room service menu.
Guests at Hideaway have access to all of the main resort’s dining options, and the nine on-site restaurants provide plenty of variety in both cuisine and ambiance. International, Tex-Mex, Japanese, Italian, Calypso, a steakhouse and a sports bar & lounge are among the options. For an extra fee, the C/X Culinary Experience is a chef-guided tour through seven different courses, each accompanied by its own music. No less than ten on-site bars and lounges serve up refreshments throughout the day and ensure that there is plenty of party remaining after the sun goes down.
Four room categories are offered: Luxury Junior Suite, Luxury Presidential One Bedroom Suite, Diamond Club Luxury Junior Suite and Diamond Club Luxury Penthouse One Bedroom Jacuzzi Suite. All rooms include WiFi, 24-hour concierge and room service, a balcony or terrace and a stocked minibar. Diamond Club rooms provide access to an exclusive area with a pool and Jacuzzi, and guests can relax on a pull-out couch while soaking up the spectacular view.
Jade Mountain Resort
Soufriere, St. Lucia
A boutique hotel affixed to the side of a mountain and overlooking the shore from around 100 feet above ground, Jade Mountain Resort may be one of the most architecturally unique properties in the world. Guests here find themselves surrounded by natural beauty in an open-design wonderland, where each of the 29 immaculately-decorated rooms features a missing fourth wall facing the stunning mountain scenery.
And when it comes to those rooms, there’s a reason Jade calls them “sanctuaries.” Accommodations, most of which have their own seamlessly integrated infinity pools, are spaced far apart to maximize privacy and are largely tech-free—something ideal for anyone looking to unplug from the modern world. Additionally, the property has a strict no kids policy, so none of the distractions one expects from family-friendly resorts will ruin your intimate getaway. Since you’ll likely spend a good amount of time at the luxury resort, a meal package is highly recommended. The main dining facility, the Jade Mountain Club, specializes in gourmet cuisines from all over the world and a stellar wine list, while sister resort Anse Chastanet offers Caribbean and Indian fare just a short shuttle ride away—which is also how most guests get to the beach.
