Going to mis Soufriere, St. Lucia and this place! We wouldn’t change anything about our vacation and loved everything we got the chance to do!
Jacob & Kelsey -Honeymoon, august 2019
Flew into UVF- 2:55PM, got picked up at the airport by one of Janus’s drivers (Mike). Mike was so friendly and helpful…he even let us stop by the Massey’s to pickup a few things! We recommend hiring someone to take you from airport to Serrana Villa. Roads are crazy! Janus met us at Serrana, after Mike was kind enough to take us through town and show us some fun spots. Janus gave us the tour of the Airbnb and was so friendly and helpful.
After Janus left we sat and read these books to see what we wanted to so! So fun! We decided we wanted to have the private chef over the next night because of all of the wonderful reviews! Janus set it up for us, easy peasy! Spent the rest of the evening watching Netflix, cooked a frozen pizza we picked up from Massy’s then went to sleep!
We had breakfast @ the villa then walked into town for the ATM before heading to Anse Cahstanet. A local stopped us in town (trying to be nice) we chatted with him as he gave us a tour. $45ec’s later and we finally headed to Anse Chastanet. Moral of the story: be nice but say no thanks or else you will have $45ec’s less than what you got at the ATM. Anse Chastanet was nice. $12usd per chair but was worth it! The walk there and back is like a hike.
Great exercise ! We came to the villa, swam and cleaned up before Chef Ramsey came and prepare us the incredible meal! Grilled seafood garlic lime butter sauce. Incredible! I couldn’t pick my favorite but Jacob said his favorite part was the fish & creole vegetables. It was all incredibly delicious!
We stayed at the villa most of the day besides walking to Zaka’s in town for lunch. The iced coffee was $6usd and smoothie was us$5. That night we went to Boucan by Hotel Chocolat. Wonderful meals, wonderful sunset view! 1 drink, 2 main entrees and a desert US$105. We highly recommend a day at the villa & enjoying Soufriere.
We woke up early & went to Sugar beach @ 9:00am. Mike dropped us off as close to the beach as he could and we shuttled the rest of the way. We took the shuttle for free because we planned on buying the day passes. We talked to 2 guests employees on our way to the beach looking to buy the guests passes US$50.00 per person. But since we got there so early, the restaurant wasn’t open to take our credit cards and proceeded to direct us to the hotel side of the beach.
We were 1 of 3 couples there. So an employee told us we can sit In the second row with an umbrella (1st row reserved for guests at the hotel) it was still a good spot. Later on in the day they gave non hotel guests the option of the very back row or one of the chairs without umbrella, so happy we got there early to get a great spot! The employee who led us to our spot also said we would have to pay the us$50.00/chair once the restaurant opens.
So we hang out, lounged and around lunch we went to ask for the us$50 day pass to buy food but the employee told us just use credit card to pay for food. We ended up ordering a pizza beachside and finally paid for the chairs when we paid for the pizza. Pretty sure that if we hadn’t ordered lucn that we would have been able to go for free. All in all it was US4150.00 compared to US$200. Because they only charged us for the 2 chairs not the day pass! Tip- get there early, so worth it! And take the shuttle because it is free if you buy anything there. People were very nice despite some reviews!
We went to Tet Paul @ 9:00am. Our tour guide was amazing and the views were breathtaking! Come back and hung out @ the villa until lunch we went to Fedos & Zaka’s again. Fedos was so yummy and cheap! Chicken roti & fish curry were great! Came back to the villa, swam until dinner.
We walked t Valelse for dinner. Grilled chicken salad, chicken roti were both yummy. They also had burgers, sandwiches, drinks etc. walked back while Janus passed us on the way and took us to see his other properties and future properties. So fun and cool to see! They’re all beautiful! He dropped us back off at the villa and we hang out the rest of the evening poolside.
Last day, check-out @ 11. Going to mis Soufriere, St. Lucia and this place! We wouldn’t change anything about our vacation and loved everything we got the chance to do! Janus is an incredible host and he will help make your vacation the best it can be
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.
