Saint Lucia is a great choice but be mindful that the hurricane season starts from June and ends in November.

I am not sure what your budget is but here are a few hotel choices for Saint Lucia: Royalton, Sandals, Sugar Beach, Anse chastanet, Jade Mountain, Ladera, Coconut Bay.

St Lucia is a wonderful honeymoon choice - and routinely is voted one of the Top Honeymoon Destinations year after year.. With the majestic Pitons, waterfalls galore, beautiful beaches, volcano and mud baths, horseback riding, plantation tours, hijing, snorkeling, diving, fishing, whale watching, ATV, segway tours, cooking classes, street parties, heritage festivals, spas and so on - what's not to love?!

There's loads of ootions for places to stay. With two weeks, I'd seriously consider a 2 center holiday, to experience the best of both ends of the island..

First off, I'd suggest somewhere up neither, near Rodney Bay or Gros Islet. If all-inclusive is a must - East Winds, LeSport, Rendezvous or Royalton for more upscale (and more adults only) East Winds is excellent, small boutique AI, excellent food and service. Rendezvous is a smaller intimate AI, gorgeous grounds, great food and service, LeSport is lovely, included spa treatments, lots of activitrs if you want, great food and service, and Royalton is a large AI with Hideaway section for adult only, multiple Poole, restaurants, bars, etc. There's also three Sandals, if you want that.

There's also plenty of excellent hotels that offer meal plans.

Calabash Cove is amazing. 26 rooms, excellent food, beautiful views, top notch wine selections, etc. Cap Maison is beautiful, large more villa type accommodation, etc.

Or right in Rodney Bay - Coco Palm is excellent location to take in all RB has (more than 25 restaurants and bars, great stretch of beach, etc). Starfish (aka Papillon) is a very budget AI, but excellent beach, and with it being so budget friendly, no worries eating out and about in the village.

In the south, check out the Soufriere area. There's excellent resorts, and some excellent villas, that offer much of what a resort would.. Take a look at Sugar Beach, smack between the Pitons...Beautiful, somewhat pricey, but worth it for most, offers breakfast only, dinner/breakfast and full board. Anse Chastenet is another amazing property - gorgeous views, etc. Similar meal plans. Stonefield Estates is wonderful.. Private villa resort, each villa with own pool, kitchen, etc plus community pool and restaurant, they do offer a full board plan..Ladera is breathtaking, just breathtaking and also offers AI meal plans.. You could be Beach to Peak combo with Cap Maison and Ladera (they offer a package that way).

Lots to choose from. Give us a better idea of what you're looking for and we can make better suggestions!!

Congrats..

We had an amazing honeymoon at Calabash Cove in September 5 years ago. The private cottages with the all inclusive package are perfect if it’s in your budget.

We get all kinds of guests who come to the island for a wedding, anniversary, key birthdatpy celebration, etc. Young couples as well as older couples alike really enjoy the island and feel that it is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Here you can have the kind of experience that you will take home and remember for years.

There are plenty of good hotels and resorts, as well as very nice villas for rent. It all depends on what you are looking for to celebrate your special occasion. Do you want to be pampered at a resort an$ get away from it all or do you want to more immerse yourself in the local culture and activities that make the uskand a true standout in the works if Caribbean travel. After all it’s nit Jade Mountain, Sugar Beach Resort, or a Sandals up north that defines the island. It’s the Pitons and the beaches and waterfalls, the rugged terrain, the unique food and culture that really define the place.

A good starting point is to review the island and decide which part of the island better suits your interests and then select your place to stay from there.
