Saint Lucia, and two of its amazing hotels – Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort and Anse Chastanet – are offering one lucky winner and a friend the island adventure of a lifetime. Tempted? Here’s what this Caribbean jewel has in store...
From family-run guesthouses and sea-view villas, to boutique hotels and five-star resorts – the island has accommodation options to suit every budget and style. And if you’re our lucky competition winner, you’ll enjoy four nights at Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort and three nights at Anse Chastanet.
The former, up on the northwest coast of the island – overlooking Labrelotte Bay – is all about beachfront relaxation: its villas and guest rooms blend into the forested hillside, just a few sandy steps from the sea. You might not consider yourself an all-inclusive aficionado now, but wait until you’ve got five à la carte restaurants on your doorstep, rum-laced cocktails served on the beach, and unlimited paddle-boarding, snorkelling and sailing. A dive centre puts the island’s wrecks and reefs within easy reach, and there are a whole host of day trips available too: nature tours, zip-lining, whale-watching safaris – and much more.
Over at Anse Chastanet, in the south of the island, you’ll have 2.4 sq km of tropical forests and coast to explore, with coral reefs just a leisurely paddle away, with opportunities for diving on-site for those wanting to venture further. The entire estate is criss-crossed with walking and cycling trails, leading to two soft-sand beaches, sea-breezy coconut groves, and a handful of secluded rooms and cottages. It’s luxurious, yes, but the resort’s unusual side is what makes it so special, from its treetop restaurants to its guided birdwatching hikes, sea kayaking trips, and cocoa plantation tours. And look: the Piton mountains are tantalisingly close, so you'll have front-row views of those famous peaks. What's more, the premium rooms have one wall which is entirely open, giving the illusion that you can reach out and touch the famous peaks from the comfort of your bed.
The beauty of this prize? It allows you to see the whole of the island! From the rural beauty of the secluded beaches to the bright lights and ambition of the city, there’s a lot of adventures to be had here. You can discover Saint Lucia’s vibrant culture, meet the famously friendly locals, get the heart racing in the rainforest or out on the water, step back in time by uncovering the island’s history, feast on delicious food and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Saint Lucia. Rather than choosing between the north and south, a two-centre trip lets you explore the whole of the island. Try a few days near Rodney Bay, enjoying the buzz and beaches – before heading south to discover the mountainous scenery and Piton views. That’s what we’d do – and it’s what you could look forward to as well if you’re the lucky winner. Thought the Caribbean was just sunloungers and swimming pools? Think again. We bet that you’ll never have so much fun being proved wrong...
