An idyllic gem yet in the heart of things. We stayed at Lotus Chi Gardens in February this year and received a wonderful and warm welcome from Ellen and Jimmy. They even provided us with a breakfast starter pack! These apartments are on Vigie Cove within walking distance of several excellent restaurants and just across the bay from Castries. Duty free shopping where the cruise ships dock is a five minute walk away and you can take a 20 minute walk or water taxi into Castries for yet more shopping!
The apartments are clean, spacious and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. Not surprising as Jimmy was a chef. The views of across the bay are fantastic. Early morning on the balcony with a cup of tea, watching the cruise ships sail in was a daily treat. If you ask, Jimmy will give you a guided tour of his garden and tell you some wonderful stories about his amazing plant collection and how he acquired some of his plants.
The apartments are set in lush tropical and restful gardens where you can truly relax which is exactly what we did for most of our stay. Jimmy gave us Tai Chi lessons, all part of the package we booked. These were almost like private lessons as he works with only a handful of students at a time. There is a beautiful studio in the garden where we took our lessons.
We had the most fabulous time and will definitely be back. Thank you Ellen and Jimmy for taking such good car of us!
