This place is 100000000x better than Sandals and I am so glad we got to experience the best part of our honeymoon here!Thank you! Thank you!
Picked up from Sandals Grande by Aiden from Janus’ transport. He was super nice & took us to a grocery store to pick-up some food and drinks. He was also very helpful in finding us an ATM. He drove us to Serrena and stopped at a few viewing spots so we could take pictures. Beautiful View and felt like we were on an awesome excursion.
We arrived at the Villa around 3ish where Janus welcomed us with open arms. I did my research about Serrana and everything I read about how amazing the villa & Janus were true. The Villa is more beautiful than the pictures and I wish we stayed there more than Sandals. We spent the afternoon on the Terrace Listening to music and Admiring the views. That was the most relaxing part of our Honeymoon Yet. We drank Pitons and called Janus to ask where we could get a quick bite to eat and he said he would come pick us up to show us around. He gave us some tips for exploring and made us feel very safe. We had dinner at Pitit Peak which was the best meal we had all week.
Sandals was Beautiful but the food made me nausea. Ii felt immediately better as so as we ate dinner. My husband had the Mahi and I had a pasta dish. Next, we wanted to do some bar hopping. Went to a little bar by the dock for a Piton and then we found SKIPPERS. We absolutely loved this place and had the best night so far. Have some Piton and shots with Tonya the bartender. We made some great local friends and took fun pictures. People will get you to buy stuff for them, just say no thanks and they will be nice and go away. Then we made the walk back – wear comfy shoes! We sweat the whole way up + immediately jumped in the pool for star gazing-amazing
Slept in and made breakfast. It was an on and off rainy day so we spend the first half of the day by the pool while it was pouring and the sun still shinning. Was some of the best things I’ve experienced! Nothing beats the view from the pool and you can’t help but smile the whole time. Rain showers are very quick and we got to see a rainbow over the mountain. We tried to walk to lunch before we went to Sugar Beach but got lost so we called Janus and he found us within 10 minutes. Note: Rubis & Fedos were closed so we think it was since it was Monday. Janus had a driver who was his very nice brother, take us to lunch before the beach. We went to Pier 28. I wasn’t a fan of the chicken Burger but my husband liked his burger. Next onto Sugar Beach. This was another amazing spot. The view is truly Breathtaking as the beach is situated between the Pitons. Driver drove as far as he could and then we took and adorable looking shuttle to the beach. We got there about 3pm and it was practically empty. We put our towels in the resort side and floated in the water for the next 2.5 hours. It rained on and off there but again it was amazing to float with that view of sun-shower. Get some Pitons and that worked for the receipt you have to show to get shuttle back up the hill. I bought a cute beach cover-up wrap from a little hut on the local side. There is a warm waterfall on the way to Sugar Beach but it closes at 5pm so we missed it. Janus brother, took us to the grocery store to get some stuff for dinner. Snapper fillet YUM! Word of advice (bank of St. Lucia didn’t work for us, the bank on the other side did) Just finished dinner and relaxing on the terrace. Use the rings in the drawer next to stove for bugs. Also spray bug spray on yourself. Spent the rest of the evening reading on terrace while hubby snoozed in the chair next to me. That’s a perfect way to end a gorgeous night!
Last full day here ☹ I keep saying to my husband-I wish we were here the whole times instead of Sandals! I don’t even mind waking up to the rooster every morning his name is Rufus. We also love the bird at the kitchen sink window who visits every morning his name is Pierre. There is also the tiniest frog on the patio-his name is francois. We spent the day going to fedos for lunch – don’t get chicken roti too much bones! Walked to hummingbird beach & spent the afternoon playing with the local kids & jumping off the pier. Next walked to Lifestyle for souvenirs. Such a nice lady. Finished the afternoon at Skippers. Spent the evening in the pool. Went to Ruby’s for dinner-No pizza ☹ Had caprese salad & fish fingers-very good! Walked across the street to the best Karaoke bar ever. Look for a little boy Isiah & Make sure he’s okay! His dad is the DJ. Walked home in the pouring rain and it was awesome!
Time to leave ☹
Janus – thank you for everything. We will be back hopefully at your new Villa. This place is 100000000x better than Sandals and I am so glad we got to experience the best part of our honeymoon here!
Thank you! Thank you!

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.
