One of our favourite things to do in St Lucia is take a trip up to Spa Maison at Cap Maison and enjoy the view of clear water, sandy beaches and bird-rich tropical landscaped gardens. Getting a massage underneath a gazebo in the garden is truly the most relaxing and indulgent experiences – we always feel like VIPs afterwards!
The nightlife is St Lucia can be quite varied but Piano Piano is one bar that attempts to be all things to everyone – it’s part hip Champagne bar and part fusion diner. Piano Piano has got a dressy atmosphere, so we love making an effort – it makes enjoying the refined Caribbean menu with a glass of bubbly just that bit more special. We recommend booking in advance, as when a hot local jazz talent is in the house the place tends to get full of beautiful people very quickly.
We never leave St Lucia without a visit to The Coal Pot Restaurant in Rodney Bay. It’s not hard to see why it is a winner of the island’s “˜Best Restaurant of the Year’ award, with its tables overlooking the marina and its fresh Caribbean flavours mixed with Chef Xavier’s French expertise. We can highly recommend the much-applauded St Lucian crab-back – locally caught crab sautéed with fresh seasoning and herbs and served with scrumptious garlic butter sauce. We find it hard not to keep coming back to this oh-so-sumptuous dining spot.
