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!

My Husband and I live in Soufriere the other end of the Island so once in a while we like to getaway to the north for a few days.

We found this perfect property Lotus Chi, just a few minutes drive from the City we found tranquility, a property just of the marina so great views as well as comfort.

WE stayed in the large of the cottages/ apartments and it was tastefully furnished and offered all the comforts of home we did not even have to go out to eat as each cottage comes with a full kitchen.

The best part was in the evening watching the sunset while drinking a bottle of wine on the balcony just amazing.

The owners Jimmy and Ellen well what can I say, what an adorable couple so hospitable and extremely entertaining makes your stay a memorable one.

I can see this is going to be a favorite place for us to stay..

Thank you Jimmy and Ellen

Room Tip: we had the larger cottage/ apartment on the top but any are just as good

My husband & I stayed in one of these beautiful apartments for three(3) nights.

The apartments are in a central location, yet when you enter the gates to the property there is a sense of peace, serenity & tranquility that envelops you.

The Beach and a few restaurants are within walking distance and it is only a 5 min. drive away from the city of Castries.

The apartments are located right on the Vigie Bay & the view of the Castries Harbor is amazing, especially if there is a visiting cruise ship.

The sound of the birds chirping in the beautiful, lush, green Lotus Chi Garden, is pure heaven & the Egrets have made their home near the pond below the property making it a lovely sight to behold.

The owners Ellen & Jimmy are very friendly & while our stay was too short to partake, Tai Chi, classes are offered by Sifu James, if one so desires.

We shall surely be back, this time for a longer period & my husband & I have agreed to have some lessons in Tai Chi to help relieve our stress.
