Apart from being in a gorgeous villa overlooking Soufriere and astounding view of the pitons this place feels like your home for the time you are there.
We arrived Sunday evening and the first thing we noticed was how fast we got through at the airport. Immigrations and customs officials greeted us ‘’Welcome to Paradise’’ and they weren’t kidding!
We were picked up promptly at the airport by Ramiah and driven up to Sargas villa. Throughout the drive, he was engaging and answering all our questions about the best places to visit. He showed us lil glimpses of villages along the way.
When we got to the Villa there was a blackout but even in the dark you couldn’t deny the magnificence of this place.
Janus then greeted us and gave us a quick tour of the villa. Seeing as it was close to the night, a Sunday and experiencing blackout, we were grateful that Janus had gone ahead and brought us some groceries and fruits. Our first night was peaceful and restful.
Day 2- we woke up early and had breakfast out on the porch overlooking Soufriere and the Pitons- Heaven!
We were picked up by our driver Shane around 10am and he took us to Tet Paul and the Drive-in Volcano, the Sulphur Springs, Torille waterfall and the botanical Gardens. Shane was an exceptional soul. He was very friendly and for a young guy he truly understands customer service and country pride. Shane also took us to Fedos for lunch, a childhood favorite of his and we truly understood why- amazing local cuisine.
Strongly recommend doing the all the sites mentioned above to get a better understanding of how amazing Soufriere is.
Later that evening we were treated to dinner by our private chef Ramsey. This man can cook!! Easy going and quiet temperament . He made us the best king fish dinner. Nothing can touch a St. Lucian Sunset!
Day 3 - We were picked up by Jamal, a cool dude who took us to Anse Chastanet. He dropped us at the entrance and told us where to go from there, promising to pick us up that evening. We spent the day exploring the beaches at Anse Chastanet & Anse Mamin, having lunch at restaurant at Anse Chastanet and drinks at Mamin. The beaches were a bit rough that day but still exquisite .
We fell asleep under an almond tree! Later that day we went on a Sunset cruise with Mystic Man- a must do! Not only were the staff very knowledgeable but very friendly and really took care of the guest in the boat. Unlimited drinks and finger food and a cruise around the Pitons and into an amazing and romantic Sunset. An unforgettable experience.
Day 4 - We rented a car from a dude from Islander Cars, he dropped it off at the villa for us and we decided to drive up to Castries to see that side of the island. We had lunch at Spinnakers and swam at reduit beach. Not private but calm green blue waters and endless Piton Beers! Perfect! We had dinner at Boucan, everything has chocolate in it, they didn’t disappoint.
Day 5- Drove down early to Marigot Bay and ordered a roti from a restaurant on the waters, then drove to Rodney bay and spent few hours In the crystal clear water, there weren’t many people which made it even more perfect.We had dinner at Ladera. This pace had the most spectacular view of the Pitons. Go at Sunset and just sit and watch.
Why stay at Sargas?
Janus you’ve done an amazing job with this place and you and your staff have made our stay here so memorable. Thank you for the bread, that was very thoughtful.
We will be back soon, maybe to celebrate our 11th anniversary
Thank you Again, from your Neighbors in Trinidad
Much love Sabrina & Richard
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.
