We were picked up from the airport by one of Janus drivers called Malie. Who was really nice & friendly and really knowledgeable about where to go during our stay. Janus met us at the villa and is so welcoming and helpful and the villa is amazing.
As it was Sunday, most shops here was closed so we’d researched and booked the Mango Tree Restaurant at the Stonefield resort. (about 5 minute drive) and Malie came and picked us up and dropped us back afterwards on a Sunday the Mango Tree has a pan steal band, who were great and he view of the ocean as we ate was amazing. Food was lovely and great cocktails.
Mango Tree had different “things” on during the week so worth checking & booking. Food prices were pretty reasonable. Euro $ 85 for 2 people with drinks 2x courses each
Planned on having a lazy day today as the weather was a bit hit & miss with rain. Wandered into the town for smoothies at Zaka’s Art Café and went to the Supermarket. Spent the afternoon chilling and then Chef Ramsey came in the evening to cook us an amazing creole meal. So tasty & chef Ramsey is so nice & knowledgeable, highly recommend.
Weather was pretty poor today with on & off rain but we didn’t let that stop us. We walked to the Botanical Gardens & Diamond falls in the morning. Took us about 20 minutes. Really lovely place & gorgeous plants. In the afternoon we were picked up and taken to Sulphur Springs which was a lot of fun and left our skin very smooth.
Before our visit we’d booked dinner at Jade Montain and this didn’t disappoint. Its quite a steep drive to get there but is worth it. The views were amazing and the food was service was also spectacular. Pricey but as a one-off, so worth it!
We were picked up early for the rainforest tour which was brilliant- pretty intese with a lot of steps, but our guide was great and so knowledgeable and we got to swim in the waterfall too! Because we finished the tour early, Ian our driver took us to the Nature trail which was Fantastic. The view of the Island & Pitons were amazing, we were then taken to lunch in a local restaurant in town which served proper creole meals- so tasty! We then spent the rest of the afternoon at the villa enjoying the pool, the view & Piton Beer!
We wanted to go to Sugar Beach (Drone Footage) and Janus hooked us up with a water taxi ride from the front through one of his guides Jamal. $60 return for both of us which seems the standard price. However we had the whole boat to ourselves. It was an awesome trip, took us 15 minutes and the scenery was spectacular. Boat company called feel good boat tours.
Sugar Beach is just stunning. We paid $ 50 each for a shaded lounger & umbrella & towels. It also includes a few complimentary drinks & snacks and the staff were lovely & attentive. We had lunch here which was standard St. Lucia Pricing. We spent the day at the beach & loved it!
We decided to enjoy another day at the villa. Today enjoying the sunshine & the pool. We’d picked up some food from the supermarket on our way back yesterday, so had everything we needed for a lazy villa day.
Weather was a little bit iffy in the morning. So we decided to stay By the villa but fambled into Soufriere for lunch at Pitit Peak, which was really nice. We then spent the afternoon in the sun by the pool.
St. Lucia, the villa, Janus, Malie & Ian here all been fantastic. We’ve had such an amazing holiday & we’re so glad we picked Serrana Villa Airbnb & Janus to make our holiday so special.

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.
