The best honeymoon resorts in St Lucia
St Lucia is one of the most beautiful, exotic and romantic of all the Caribbean islands and the perfect destination for an unforgettable honeymoon. We’ve hand-picked some of the best honeymoon resorts in St Lucia from the Wild Bay Collection below, outlining what makes each of them so special.
But first, St Lucia herself…
A heady mix of dense lush green jungle, secret coves and bright white sand. Mountains rising from cerulean seas. St Lucia offers a stunning and varied setting like nowhere else. Read on to find out where to stay for the ultimate St Lucia honeymoon.
The Pitons, two breathtaking volcanic spires on a UNESCO world heritage site take a lot of the headlines, and you’ll be hard pushed to find a photo of St Lucia on Instagram, or anywhere else, without them featuring and taking centre stage, and for good reason, they are one of the most spellbinding monuments anywhere in the world and worth the journey alone – but there is far more to this paradise island in the West Indies.
More than seventy per cent of the island is covered in rainforest, and home to more than 180 different species of birds – six of which are endemic to St Lucia. There are also natural volcanic sulphur springs with beautifying and healing properties. St Lucia is simply full of natural wonder – which also means the food and drink on the island is as exceptional and varied too. Another compelling reason to consider a St Lucia honeymoon.
The Roseau Valley, a gigantic banana plantation and multitude of distilleries has 21 different types of rum, Hotel Chocolat’s Rabot Restaurant features its pioneering cacao cuisine (and cacao Bellinis) and St Lucia has its own home brewed pilsner called Piton. It’s worth going to St Lucia just to wine and dine, which means every meal on your St Lucia honeymoon will be an unforgettable experience.
But probably our favourite thing about St Lucia is its plethora of hidden coves, bays and pristine beaches which just radiate adventure and romance. Whether you’re watching the sun rise or gently fade into night in a display of rich colour, or (and this is highly recommended) you’re gazing upon one of the idyllic towns and villages, watching the colourful lights jump into action, music and the smell of Caribbean cooking drifting through the air, as you cruise into port already imagining how the first sip of a rum cocktail will taste, St Lucia’s beaches are alive with magic (think Anse Chastenet and Sugar Beach).
Such is the splendour of St Lucia’s shorelines much of its coast has been featured in novels and movies, including the first Pirates of the Caribbean where the picture-perfect Marigot Bay makes a memorable cameo as Jack Sparrow sees the hanging skeletons of captured pirates from the natural arch rising out of the deep blue Caribbean Sea.
The adventure the island is steeped in isn’t all fictional either. It’s rumoured that Black Beard buried treasure at Vieux Fort, a town in the south of the island, and in the mid sixteenth century French Pirates who were led by Francois Leclerc, better known as “Jambe de Bois” for his wooden leg, or ‘Peg Leg’ settled on Pigeon Island, a secure base in a strategic location which allowed him to ambush passing ships.
All of this adds up to the perfect setting for the most spectacular honeymoon you can imagine – actually you probably can’t even, but you certainly won’t forget it, especially with some of the best Caribbean luxury resorts to choose from.

Dream honeymoon! My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Sugar Beach, and there are truly not enough words to describe this incredible trip! The views are absolutely breathtaking, and we felt like we were in paradise. From the moment we arrived at Sugar Beach, we were greeted with the most heart-felt welcome from staff. Swamed, Keitha, Manaske, Sher, Tyrone, Kester and Annetta went out of their way to make us feel at home. Everyone was SO sweet and friendly- this made our experience even more special. My husband and I are already looking forward to our next trip! We can’t wait to visit again!

A romantic hidden bay, pristine white sand and majestic views of The Pitons
There’s a reason Matt Damon rented out the entire Sugar Beach resort in St Lucia to renew his vows with a host of his A-list celebrity friends. It’s basically paradise, so if we could renew our vows absolutely anywhere in the world … yeh, we’d choose Sugar Beach too. It also makes the perfect honeymoon destination.

Whether you’re seeking adventure, history, culture – or just lots and lots of romance – Sugar Beach, and St Lucia, has you covered, and no doubt whichever excursion you choose it’s sure to leave you, and your partner, in awe of your breathtakingly beautiful surroundings with one of the best honeymoon resorts in St Lucia as your base.
Nothing you will see in these reviews or elsewhere on the internet does this place justice, at all. That isn’t dramatic, either…walking into your room here will make your jaw involuntarily drop. My wife and I celebrated our marriage and honeymoon with the Peak to Beach package between Ladera and Cap Maison. We stayed in the Heritage Suite Room E (HIGHLY recommend), and from the moment we stepped onto the resort grounds, we said “this is actually unbelievable” and repeated that multiple times throughout our stay. None of the pictures, videos, or reviews we saw could even halfway represent this place. The views, the atmosphere, the staff, the food at Dasheene, the purposeful use of every little space on the property, it was all perfect.
Nestled in the heart of St Lucia’s lush green rainforest, perched gracefully atop a 1000ft high volcano ridgeline with breathtaking views of the Pitons and the deep blue Caribbean Sea, the Ladera Resort looks more like something from fiction than reality and is one of the best luxury resorts in the Caribbean.

Every room and suite has an “open wall” so you can see the stunning Pitons rising up from the sparkling Caribbean Sea, as well as your own private heated plunge pool.
Designed for ultimate relaxation there’s an abundance of ways to unwind. Each room and suite comes complete with an eco-friendly Jade yoga mat, and optional complimentary one hour yoga sessions are on offer Monday to Friday. There’s a wellness gym on site where you can workout while taking in the majestic views, complimentary private guided tours of the Ladera Gardens and hikes along the Ladera Ridge and there’s a complimentary shuttle to and from the beach Monday to Saturday. And of course there’s the food. An incredible fine dining farm to table experience is available at Ladera’s award-winning restaurant Dasheene.
