St. Lucia is famous for its lush hills that plunge into the azure waters of the Caribbean. Enjoy this scenery at Marigot Bay Resort, overlooking a large marina, where you can charter a yacht, shop, or enjoy the resort’s open-air spa and dining.
Farther south, members can stay in spacious suites at the beachfront Viceroy Sugar Beach. This modern, award-winning resort is nestled on 100 acres of lush, tropical rainforest between the Pitons, a pair of volcanic plugs and a symbol of the island.
Located on the Caribbean west coast of St Lucia, the natural landscapes of Marigot Bay and Sugar Beach are surrounded by verdant rainforest and volcanic, mountainous terrain. Described by many as the most beautiful place in the Caribbean, St. Lucia’s palm-fringed shores run only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide. Your five-star accommodations at Capella Marigot Bay and Sugar Beach Viceroy feature panoramic views, pristine beaches, celebrated on-site dining options, and celestial spa services. While the resorts offer all of the indulgences that you could ever hope for, we highly encourage you to explore the beauty of the island. The Pitons are unmatched.
The hotel can reserve a miniature sunset cruise for two. The one-hour trip sails to Castries harbor and includes flutes of cold champagne and sweeping views of a Saint Lucian sunset. Cheers!
Encountering dolphins is on the bucket list of most adventurers. Swim or snorkel the reefs in a marine reserve of warm water. You'll likely see dolphins perform their acrobatics in the wake of boats.

As a guest of Capella Marigot Bay, enjoy access to Saint Lucia Golf & Country Club. The par-71 plays to 6,685 yards and overlooks the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Your hotel concierge can arrange your transportation.
An ideal spot for sunbathing and sandcastle building, LaBas beach awaits. A ferry to to this sliver of sand departs from the public dock on the hour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily except Sundays. Once you arrive, enjoy complimentary beach towels and sun loungers.

The months of December to April comprise high season in beautiful Saint Lucia, marking the largest volume of travelers to the island. Your vacation will be comfortable regardless of dates; the Caribbean weather tends toward the high 70s and 80s year-round.
Unless you're a member of military personnel, leave all camouflage at home. Camouflage bags are not allowed at George F.L. Charles Airport and around the island, the pattern is seen as a display of military standing, not a fashion statement.
With temperatures that reliably hover between the mid-70s to the upper 80s, Saint Lucia offers perfect weather any time of the year. Conditions are usually humid, but breezes and trade winds mitigate extremes. Like many Caribbean islands, seasons are not particularly distinct, but note that hurricane season is roughly June through November. This is also the rainiest time of the year, though showers usually end quickly.
