A Top Luxury Resort On Marigot Bay In St Lucia

By: Kelly J Wilson

Before choosing your exclusive St Lucia Resort, and parting with a lot of your hard earned cash, take the time to research what could be the finest luxury resort in St Lucia above Marigot Bay.

This exclusive resort blends into the hillside above Marigot Bay on the sheltered west coast of St Lucia. Marigot Bay was described by author James Michener as the most beautiful in the Caribbean, and after spending time at this top St Lucia Luxury resort, you can't fail to agree with him.

Discovery at Marigot Bay is designed and has as its main aim to enable its visitors to escape, even for a brief period of time, the pressures of everyday life, and recharge batteries, even to reflect a little on life, and what family time means to each individual.

It is a luxury resort in every sense of the word, possibly one of the top three luxury Resorts in St Lucia, and here you will find every modern facility you can think of.

Starting with the accommodation, there are 57 extremely well appointed suites, and half of them have plunge pools, and there are 35 rooms, each with a large deck with stunning views of the sparkling waters of Marigot Bay, and the myriad of yachts at anchor or elegantly coming and going.

Everything about the rooms and suites shouts style, with contemporary design, state of the art fittings, and the suites even have a fully equipped kitchen, and dining, and entertainment areas opening onto a large veranda. You can hardly fail to be impressed. The one thing to be careful about is where your accommodation is situated because the resort is on a hill, so there might be steep inclines and steps involved, and there are no lifts or escalators, so if you have difficulties in these areas you should ensure your booking is as stressless as possible

Exclusive luxury resorts should have exclusive luxury dining and Discovery at Marigot Bay is no exception. There is the very best haute cuisine at the Boudreau, or if your tastes are less haute and more ordinary then casual eating at the Hurricane Hole bar will keep you happy. If you choose to leave Discovery at Marigot Bay in the evening then the hotel boat called the Gingerbread will take you to any of them free of charge, then a phone call summonses them back to take you home. You should try Rainforest Hideaway which has a set price menu, and Chateaux Mygo has 2 for 1 cocktails at a happy hour every night, decent food, and sometimes a band.

If you need some retail therapy then the very attractive wooden Marina Village with a courtyard garden is at hand. Boutiques bakery, bar, bank, supermarket, art gallery, and art shop about covers all the bases.

If its action you want, then on the water there is sailing, under the water scuba diving and snorkelling, or a gymnasium.

The Lapli Spa will invigorate or relax, and comes strongly recommended by many guests

Discovery at Marigot Bay has no beach of its own, but a speedboat will take you to the Jalousie beach, which takes about 15 minutes, but is restricted to eight passengers, so book early to avoid disappointment.

If there is a complaint it is the lack of a beach, in fact the lack of anything much in the way of night life in the immediate area. Mind you most people come for lazing by the pool, water sports, and going to the beach, followed by early bed!!

Discovery at Marigot Bay is an exclusive Luxury resort which has added to the choices for the demanding traveller in St Lucia, and it stands comparison with many well known luxury Caribbean resorts.
