We stayed for 3 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the hotel, the restaurant and this area of St Lucia ( we had 5 nights at Ti Kaye beforehand) It is adult luxury- intimate with only c 14 lodges, and a small but perfectly formed pool. We stayed in the standard lodge No. 1, and it had a great view, as well as being large, airy, relaxing and welcoming. Lovely touches like complimentary prosecco, nuts, rum punch ...in addition to usual tea and coffee. And the setting....The photos do not lie. The setting is indeed superb. We enjoyed the walks around the estate too and Judy was helpful and gave very personal attention - pointing us in the direction of a virtually deserted beach just 5 mins down the road. Hotel staff helpful and friendly- I even had walking poles made for me for my walk up Gros Piton as BA lost mine (I have left them for future guests!) I did the chocolate bean to bar tour- fun and informative if a bit overpriced. We thought the standard of cooking in the restauarant was very high so ate there all 3 nights, and enjoyed each meal - but as the menu does not change it was getting to feel a bit repetitive. Perhaps a "specials of the day" would prevent this? Service in the restaurant always efficient, but not effusive and some friendlier than others. We felt 3 nights was about the right length of time for a visit as it enabled us to do different things around Soufriere..
