Take the opportunity to reconnect and reflect as you explore every breathtaking angle of this island paradise — be it hiking in the Pitons, indulging in a treatment at the Rainforest Spa, or sipping a rum cocktail at the new poolside bar and cabanas. Our fine-dining and beachside restaurants just got a refresh to make you truly feel in touch with the landscape. Not a day passes here without incredible memories made and peaceful moments found.

The Rainforest Spa
From the wooden treehouse-style structures to the products used, the Rainforest Spa is all natural. The nine treatment rooms, temazcal (a traditional stone steam room warmed by volcanic spring water), and relaxation area with natural pools and streams are reached by walkways winding through the jungle; there’s also a fully-equipped gym. Both adults and children can indulge in the spa’s Caribbean-inspired treatments. Enjoy a chocolate scrub, a soothing honey-and-chamomile body treatment, or get your caffeine fix for the day with a Caribbean coffee scrub and massage. The spa has two couples treatment rooms with private outdoor heated pools and a number of specially-designed treatments; for the ultimate couple’s getaway try the Sulfur Seduction experience which includes a mud bath in nearby sulfuric springs, a trip to Piton waterfalls and a back massage.

Widely regarded as the island’s spiritual heart, the lush foliage and soaring mountain vistas of Val des Pitons provide the perfect backdrop for our St. Lucia spa. Guests wishing to unwind can experience a period of re-creation in its truest sense — a time for reflection, renewal and break from everyday stresses of life.

Surrounded by lush foliage and soaring mountain vistas, the spa recently made several enhancements for an even more serene experience. Now available for booking: a couples treehouse treatment room, built on stilts and perched high above the ground with a balcony overlooking the mountains and forest. You can also expect a refreshed treatment menu and lobby space.

A new beachside wellness and fitness facility, featuring a yoga studio and cardio equipment room, now welcomes you to work out with the ocean as your backdrop.
