I am excited to be returning to the Blu St. Lucia for the 3rd time in less than 12 months. My first visit to the Blu was by chance in October 2013. I saw the pictures of this beautiful 72 room boutique hotel and was intrigued. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly greeted and offered a complimentary beverage. I was immediately taken by the friendliness of the staff, and the open and airy ambiance.
After settling in, we decided to stay on property to eat. Upon learning that I was a vegan, chef Lawrence had me write down the food items that I would eat. To my pleasant surprise, he went shopping and prepared meals all week according to my list and would also buy special treats to my liking. Following each meal, he would check to make sure it was to our liking...each meal was delicious.
I then had the opportunity to experience a chocolate massage by the Spa manager Neil Charles. Although I thought I was not a chocolate lover, this spa experience changed my mind. It was "delicious" and intoxicating. I was relaxed for hours and kept smelling my skin.
When it was time to leave, there was a sadness as if we were leaving new found family members.
We knew we would return to stay at the Blu for our annual trip to the Art & Jazz Festival in May 2014.
Upon our arrival in May, Cindie, the property manager, and all of the staff made us feel so welcomed and loved. It was like coming home! Once again, we received attentiveness to our dietary needs as well as our special requests and accommodations. Cindie and the other staff members checked on us regularly and made sure we were well taken care of throughout our stay.
It is because of this attentiveness and genuine caring that we will return to the Blu St. Lucia again in July 2014. The Blu has definitely become our home away from home.
