Anse Chastanet Beach – this is really close to Jade Mountain. The road to get to either locations is crazy – but well worth the trip!
Day 1 – Arrived around 5pm to Serrana Villa and was happily greeted by Janus! He stocked us up with fresh eggs, bread, orange juice and milk! It was delightful!
We decided to stay in that night and to have the Serrana Villa’s Private Chef cook for us - MUST DO!
We went with the grilled seafood in Garlic-lime butter sauce and it was AMAZING! The Chef even made an amazing St. Lucian Rum Cocktail for us while he was cooking. This was a perfect beginning for our honeymoon.
Day 2 – First full day in Soufriere! Enjoyed some fresh coffee and eggs (Thanks Janus!) on the porch. Janus gave us a tour of the local supermarket downtown so we could stock up on more local fruits and veggies! We then went to Sulphur Springs for the Mud Bath and tour – it was a lot of fun! After that we went to Sugar Beach for some snorkeling. While you’re there head to the far right side of the beach. It’s the public side of the beach and there’s a guy there named Blaze who will provide you with super cheap (but amazing Pina Coladas!
There’s also great snorkeling near where he sets up shop too. He also gave us a pretty cool tour of all the fruits on the island – it was a lot of fun!
Day 3 - St. Lucia Rum Distillery Tour. The tour wasn’t anything too special – but we definitely recommend going there for all the free rum samples! After that we did more beach bummin!
Day 4 – Jade Mountain – words can’t describe how amazing the views are here. It is a must see while in St. Lucia ! definitely make reservations at their restaurant too.
Day 5 – Anse Chastanet Beach – this is really close to Jade Mountain. The road to get to either locations is crazy – but well worth the trip! Just make sure you have a good rental car or hire a taxi for the trip. There is a lot of good snorkeling there too!
Day 6 – Sandals La Toc – We though we would try out another beach while we were here but that area honestly isn’t worth the drive. It was too touristy and gimmicky. Definitely stay with the local beaches.
Day 7 – more beach bummin at the Anse Chastanet Beach – and Sugar Beach. This was basically our last day so we were trying to fit in everything. We did the Tet Paul Hike – it was super fun and had great views. It’s not a very long hike either. We hired the personal chef to come back to the villa to cook for us again – and it was amazing yet again! Definitely recommend.
Day 8 – last Day! We had an early flight so unfortunately we just had to pack up and head to the airport.
Janus – Thank you for the wonderful experience of staying at your villa.
We will definitely b back!
