Wow, how lucky we feel to be the first entry at this impressive villa! We arrived 3 days ago and have been blown away by St. Lucia. Not only is the Island beautiful but so are the people. Everyone is very friendly, warm and kind. Janus has been an incredible host. He introduced us to Jamal. Who has been our private tour guide for all of Soufriere. He picked us up at the airport after a long trip from the US, cold beers and an easy drive to the villa recharges our batteries. Later that night Jamal recommended Pitit Peak restaurant for dinner. We loved the beggers purse (red snapper! Yum!) and sipped drinks looking out on the ocean.
Day 2- Jamal took us to the Tet Paul Nature Trail, where we learned about the culture, flowers and fruits, wildlife. We then hopped in the car and traveled to the Sulphur Springs and did the mud baths and mineral springs bath. Be warned, it is smelly but you get used to it. Wear clothes you don’t plan on using the rest of the trip. The sulphur is good for you but takes three washed to get the smell out.
Jamal stuck with us the whole time took us for a refreshing dip at torille waterfall. It’s the perfect half day trip. We hit up fedos for lunch the creole and curry dishes have us craving it for the rest of the week. Jamal brought us back to the villa where we swam, sipped drinks and relaxed.
Janus hooked us up with a private chef. Chef Ramsey, was excellent. He was pleasant, fun and chatted with us while he prepared our meal. King fish, shrimp, vegetables he grew in his own garden! Couscous, mashed potatoes all topped with an additional garlic butter sauce. It was delicious!!!!
Day 3- we did zip-lining and walked to Sugar Beach. It is a very steep walk. I recommend trying to snag a ride down the street. It was very scenic and beautiful. Jamal recommended yet another great lunch place. Belview! We had an amazing dinner at Orlandos it was romantic and elegant
Day 4- We went ATV driving through the rain forest. This is a must do!! The lush greenery makes you feel small in this world but in awe! Jamal again recommended Stone-yard for lunch. We recommend the greenfish salad and stew chicken. Jamal dropped us off and promptly picked us back up for a seaside view dinner @ the hummingbird restaurant. We had yet another fantastic meal!!
Day 5 – We are taking a dip in the pool and packing up. And we don’t want to leave!!! This was the perfect start to our honeymoon. Romantic and amazing views. We are so grateful that we got to do this.
We will be sure to tell all our friends and family about Janus’s Villas!!!
With love, see you later !! XO

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.
