My husband Brian and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at this beautiful Hotel. From the minute you arrive you are treated as special guests. The lovely welcoming staff at the reception area get your holiday off to a great start. For first time visitors to this Hotel one can only stand in awe at the the sweeping staircase and high open airiness of the roof structure which is so colonial -like. The airconditioned rooms are actually very spacious suites and the Hotel have just started on a room refurbishment programme. Each room has a lovely view over the beautifully manicured gardens with the Reduit beach and Pigeon Island beyond. The Hotel is very well situated on the lovely sweeping Reduit Beach which you can access directly from the gardens. A large pool complete with swim up bar completes the lovely outdoor facilities. Dining options are either in the spacious Epicure restaurant or for that special meal book into the intimate Chic restaurant which offers exquisitely prepared food and very attentive service. The Royal Spa has a great variety of lovely body treatment options and a special treat is a wonderful beach massage. This is a truly first class Hotel and one that will give you special memories of your holiday in St Lucia. The staff are the Hotel's secret to success. They go out of their way to make your holiday so special and memorable. Go on, give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
