We just loved the apartment + the panoramic views from every window + the terrace. I can’t believe what the hotels charge for the same view! Janus was a great host + we will definitely be back.
We stopped in St.Lucia for 3 days on our way to St.Lucia to do a liveaboard sailing cruise. We were hoping for a few days of R+R and that’s exactly what we got! I will admit that we were not ambitious in our exploring, but we did manage to get to Anse Chastenet & Anse Mamin on our first full day to the Sulphur springs + mineral spa/ diamond waterfall on or 2nd day. Like many who have stayed here, we preferred Anse Mamin.
We got there late in the day (around 2pm) + were able to rent two of the hotels lounge chairs under a palapa for $33 US. We were told they don’t usually rent them to non-guests but luckily 2 guests had just vacated them when we arrived, so they were happy to rent it to us. We stayed just before sunset & then headed back it was peaceful + wonderful!
The next day we headed into town around mid-afternoon + went to the Sulphur springs at 3pm hoping to miss the cruise ship crowds. The crowd was light + we loved the mud bath experience! Afterward, we had just enough time to hit diamond falls + the mineral baths. It was a short 5-mins walk to the falls + the walk to the botanical gardens along the way was lovely.
The public mineral baths were closed but they had our private bath room, so we decided to do that it was well worth $7 per person! so relaxing we got a couple of rim punches from the café + took them into the private hut with us. It was a great day to unwind!
We visited Ruby’s pizza twice during our stay + a little disappointed they didn’t have pizza either time but the food we did have was excellent + the service was fabulous. We just loved the apartment + the panoramic views from every window + the terrace. Well worth the price! I can’t believe what the hotels charge for the same view! Janus was a great host + we will definitely be back.
