Best Honeymoon Resorts in St. Lucia
Anse Chastanet Resort
Soufriere, St. Lucia
St. Lucia is one of the most mountainous islands in the Caribbean, and Anse Chastanet Resort puts you right in the middle of it. It’s the only resort on the island with a view of both the Piti and Gros Piton mountains. Amenities include free WiFi, free parking, twice-daily yoga classes in a beachfront pavilion and a spa with indoor and outdoor treatment areas.
Thirty-seven of Anse Chastanet’s rooms are scattered along the lush hillside, and the remaining 12 are in a beautiful garden at beach level. Some hillside rooms have open fourth walls, while others feature wooden louvre walls that open onto balconies or patios. The six different room categories also include the Piton Pool Suite, where guests can enjoy a 160-square-foot private pool while taking in a spectacular view of the Pitons.
Five restaurants are on-site and available to guests. Have an elegant breakfast or dinner at the Treehouse, vegetarian cuisine at Emerald’s and enjoy beachfront dining at Trou au Diable and Jungle Grill. Trou au Diable offers a special Indian menu every evening except Tuesday. In addition, two on-site bars are open daily and offer a wide selection of wine, beer and cocktails.
Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa
Vieux Fort, St. Lucia
Spread out over 85 acres with a mile-long beach and five pools, there’s plenty of room to do exactly what you want—even if that’s nothing at all. A series of four-story buildings house the resort’s 250 rooms—there aren’t many neighboring properties nearby and it doesn’t feel as touristy as other resorts on the island.
Most rooms come with one king or two queen beds, contemporary décor, furnished balconies and every room faces the grounds, pool and ocean. Splash Premium Ocean View and Concierge Premium Ocean View Suites have one king and two trundle beds, or two queen-size beds and a sofa. The Concierge Premium Ocean View Suites come with extra amenities, like evening turn-down service, stocked mini-fridges and first choice on dinner reservations.

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.
