Janus, thank you so, so very much for your hospitality, the great conversations and the delicious fruit and bread that we looked forward to every morning!
It goes without saying but your place is absolutely stunning and the view is simply unbeatable. We know you’re going to do amazing things in the future and can’t wait to come back to St. Lucia in a couple years and see how many empires you’ve started!
As for recommendations, we basically followed this book and relaxed the rest of the time! We arrived with dreams of hiking the Piton and becoming adventure warriors but we’re here on honeymoon and found that after stressing about a wedding there was nothing we wanted to do more than relax and recharge.
If you’re looking for a more expensive, nicer nigh out;
we recommend Orlando’s in Soufriere or Boucan at Hotel Chocolat. We splurged with drinks and desserts at both places but worth every penny spent. These two places had the most attentive and courteous staff, the atmosphere was perfect in each place.
Unfortunately, a huge chunk of change went to the restaurants at the beaches (they’re all apart of resorts so you pay for it). As most other said, you can split a pizza or burger to keep it cheaper or in retrospect we could have packed our own booze and lunch and save a hell money.
Of all the things we did on our trip, I think our favorite times were leisurely waking up, making breakfast and drinking our coffee on the patio and enjoying the view! And if cooking’s your thing, the kitchen is well stocked up. Great for anything you’d want to cook, it makes for a very enjoyable night in.
Overall, we couldn’t have asked for a single thing more from our trip or from Janus, he has been a very gracious host and don’t hesitate to call him for ideas or questions!
Thank you Janus for everything!
Ashley and Ryan
