Thank you Janus, Jermal, Chef Ramsey & all of the helpful beautiful people of St. Lucia.
Sept. 24- Hey, This is Sean, if you’re reading this, I want you to know that I am such a home body, we have constantly been flooded & amazed at everything.
We called Janus and he basically guided us by car & food on a tour of Soufriere (not sure how to spell it) When we walked into the building, the view literally took our breath away.
We had planned to climb the Gros Piton the first day but after getting into the pool, we melted into Saba and couldn’t help but relax. Janus called for us (Jermal) who too us to Pitit Peak (a restaurant in Soufriere Bay) and to get Ice Cream.
We came back and Chef Ramsey arrived.He booked an amazing dish and served us right at the table. He bought all fresh ingredients and made everything from Scratch. A genuinely good cook and nice guy. After dinner we just watched the sun set over Pitit Piton and the Beautiful Caribbean Sea.
Sept. 25- We drove to Marigot Bay for an all-day Catamaran Cruise which took us Zipling in Morne Coubaril Estate, Sulphur Spring & Diamond Falls.
We also went snorkeling on the way. I drove and let me tell you ‘’ Listen to Janus’’. He will organize a driver to take you wherever you want to go. Coming back in town, Jermal organized a private sunset boat tour at the coast. We saw the bat caves, sugar beach & Anse Chastanet Beach.
We saw the sunset and the most stars that I have ever seen in my life. We got Ice-cream again, went to the grocery store and I cooked my girlfriend dinner. We drunk rum & listened to music all night.
Sept. 26- We finally slept in. We took time & ate breakfast. We then embarked on a hike to the Gro Piton. It was super fun & super freaking tiring. The views we saw from the mountains were absolutely amazing. We then drove down to Sugar Beach & Kayaked between the Pitons.
It felt like I was living in a postcard. Please snorkel at Sugar Beach, beautiful fish, beautiful Coral. We had dinner at Jade Mountain under the stars.
We got engaged there under the stars
9/26/2019 – I LOVE YOU ASHMEER
We then embarked on a hike to the Gro Piton. It was super fun & super freaking tiring.

We have too many good things to say about our stay at Saba Villa!
The professionalism and organization from the moment we were picked up from the airport, to the moment we left, was exceptional. And every person we have met during our stay has been friendly and welcoming.
Our first full day was jam packed with activities led by @realstluciatours. This included a visit to Tet paul Nature Trail, The Sulphur Springs and Toraille Waterfall!
We also had the pleasure of meeting the happiest chef in the world who cooked us the most amazing fish platter.
We also wanted to hike Petit Piton after hearing so many things about it, and so the amazing Janus organized an early morning hike (That nearly killed us) but the views were phenomenal!
It is hard to put into words how special this villa is and how amazing our stay was, but we would like to especially thank Janus for being THE most incredible host. We hopt to return very soon.
Thank you !

The walked to the botanical Gardens ( not really that far but it was very warm and sweaty affair) Saw our first Hummingbird in the wild and the largest caterpillar we’ve ever encountered.
Janus & Team,
Thank you for the wonderful accommodation with amazing views and always friendly service
Pick-up from the airport was very smooth and was great to be able to pop into the supermarket for the essentials on the way. Straight into the pool on arrival to help acclimatized to the leak. Started to arrange all the activities we wanted to do whilst here.
walked into Soufriere to see the town and the little beach. The walked to the botanical Gardens ( not really that far but it was very warm and sweaty affair) Saw our first Hummingbird in the wild and the largest caterpillar we’ve ever encountered.
ATV tour around and about Mount Gimme. Go real fun and saved on the cost by sharing a bike, doing lay of the driving all so we could have take pictures. Arranging the pick-up and collection was really easy and gave us enough time to jump under the nearby Torille waterfall before we came back.
Took a day off to just enjoy the villa and pool and relax. Walk up to the treetop Restaurant for dinner (another on time very friendly taxi trip) the treetop restaurant only currently offer a tasting menu but it is an amazingly beautiful place with great views.
Boat trip from Hummingbird to Castries to see the capital with feel good tours. The gave us info, stopped off for lunch at Marigot Bay and we did some snorkeling along the way.
a large amount of rain which caused a power outage, so decided to stay put and enjoy the sounds and sights of the rain passing over. Booked a dinner at Dasheene restaurant at the Ladera Resort. Another good taxi trip and meal and of course more great views too!
Zip Line at Mourne Coubaril estate. We really enjoyed flying through the trees even though it was still pouring with rain. They did a nice buffet lunch there too!
quick Whatsapp last night to get a car to go to the Sulphur Springs (v. smelly) to enjoy the mud and decided to walk over to the Hotel chocolat as we had booked the tree and bar experience (v. steep climb) had cocktails, grafted our own cocoa plants and made our own chocolate bars (v. hard work) pick-up was arranged when we were dropped off and was timed perfectly.
Time to go home. Flight is not until 9:00pm so Janus has kindly aggreed to hold onto our bags at the Sapphire Apt. until we go to the airport so we could spend the day at Sugar Beach via day passes.
Everyone has been so friendly and accommodating that we’ve always got where we wanted to go. Plus love the aircon in the bedroom!
WEATHER IN SAINT LUCIA
While most places in the world have four well-defined seasons, its proximity to the equator means that this is not really the case for the island of St. Lucia.
