Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort and SpaP.O. Box 1504 Labrelotte Bay, St. Lucia
Designed after a Mediterranean village, with brick paths winding through 60 acres of scented gardens, glittering pools and cascading waterfalls, Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort offers a Caribbean getaway unlike any other. The West Indies destination, a popular escape for wedding couples, families and celebrities for nearly 20 years, was just voted St. Lucia’s top hotel at the prestigious World Travel Awards—dubbed the Oscars of the travel industry.
It’s easy to see why: from the resort’s dreamy beachfront setting to the outstanding selection of accommodations, restaurants and activities, guests are pampered at every turn. Spacious seaside villas feature stylishly appointed living spaces, kitchens and sun terraces and are sheltered from neighbors by thriving flora and fauna. Villas come with up to four bedrooms, and many have their own plunge pool.
The oversized, tropically inspired Hibiscus suites rest low on the resort’s hillside, within quick reach of the beach, swimming pools and restaurants. The more intimate Anthurium Lily Premium suites offer the perfect romantic hideaway with four-poster king-size beds and sea-view Romeo- and Juliette-style balconies as well as private terraces and sundecks.
At the heart of the village, a full-service resort presents a range of outdoor activities, pampering treatments at Serenity Spa and fine and casual dining. Dragonfly, rated among St. Lucia’s most popular restaurants, serves Euro-Caribbean cuisine with Asian influences in a stylish setting. The Upper Deck pairs scrumptious seafood and meat dishes with panoramic ocean views and refreshing sea breezes, while Papa Don’s treats couples to Mediterranean specialties on a hillside terrace overlooking the island of Martinique. Live music entertains guests every night of the week.
With staff wedding coordinators ready to arrange all the nuptial details, from the marriage license and guest accommodations to the ceremony and reception, couples can spend their time relaxing and exploring the exotic surroundings. On the big day, the bride and groom can exchange vows on the beach, in a seaside gazebo, in a deluxe hillside Estate Villa or in an informal church setting. Celebrations last long into the night at one of the resort’s many reception venues, including one of the three upscale restaurants.
