Our time here at Serrana Villa blew our time at Sandals out of the water. Can’t wait to come back and possibly check out Sargas or Janus’ new property under construction right now. My only regret is that we didn’t have more time here!!!
Day 1 – After spending 5 nights at Sandals La Toc, we took the tour through Son of Man. We arranged for the guides to drop us off after we finished. Out tour was incredible. And our guide, Gabi, was amazing. The snorkeling trip at Sugar Beach was one of our best highlights from the excursion, and we finished at the waterfall and mud baths at the Volcano.
Definitely worth checking out, however, the Toraille waterfall was very busy. We didn’t know what to expect, but we were absolutely floored when we arrived at Villa Serrana!!! Janus made sure that we had an incredible experience the entire time. download the WhatsApp application. So you can message him whenever you need to arrange a ride if you don’t have a car. He will make sure you pay the best prices wherever you go.
Day 2 – our second day, we walked to the botanical gardens. Which only take a 10-15 minute walk. We took endless pictures and really enjoyed our time there. After returning, we hung out for most of the day before having dinner at Ruby’s. a little pricey for what it is, but very good nonetheless. Their pizza was all hand made and very delicious, with a very friendly staff. Returned to the villa to enjoy some pool time and Netflix. It goes without saying that having all the luxuries of home make Villa Serrana that much more amazing.
Day 3 – after a lazy morning around the pool. We had lunch at Fedo’s, which was really cheap and had great food for the price. Only takes a 2-3 minute walk to get there. After, we walked into town for some souvenir shopping. We found that you can pretty much walk anywhere in downtown Soufriere from the villa in 200-25 mins. Everyone is really friendly and very will ing to share their culture with you. Once in downtown, just be careful around the pier, as it’s a tourist trap and local will hound you to sell just about anything they can. Just kindly say no and move on your way. From downtown, we took a taxi to Anse Chastane, although we should have just had Janus arrange a ride, as our taxi ride left a lot to be desired. Once in Anse Chastanet, we had a great time snorkeling. You can buy a beach chair, or you can just set your own towels on the beach. Although it was gorgeous, we thought sugar beach was better and more beautiful. After arranging a ride home with Janus, we had dinner at the Hummingbird which was our best meal of the Trip!! Janus picked us up himself for free, and we also had the opportunity to see his other Rental properties, which are jaw dropping.
In the end, Janus was the most gracious host we’ve ever had, and our time here at Serrana Villa blew our time at Sandals out of the water. Can’t wait to come back and possibly check out Sargas or Janus’ new property under construction right now. From his properties, you can walk anywhere in town in just minutes. And just try to absorb everything you can. My only regret is that we didn’t have more time here!!!
Thank you Janus!!!
