Marigot Bay Resort, Spa and Superyacht Marina
The American novelist James A Michener described St Lucia’s Marigot Bay as “the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean”
Having stayed there and with a return trip booked later this year we think we agree with him.
The Marigot Bay Resort and Marina is a luxury, all-suite getaway perfect for families and honeymooners alike. The resort’s 124 suites feature spacious balconies and extensive views of the bay or lush tropical gardens.
The Grill at 14°61° offers thoughtfully prepared farm to fork dining while guests enjoy breath taking views of Marigot Bay.
An intimate Rum Cave houses specialty local rums and offers rum tasting classes in a space reminiscent of an authentic distillery, while the swim-up Pool Bar and Brut Bar serve fresh sushi and ceviche. Guests are afforded even more luxury at the world class Village Spa. Inspired by St Lucia’s natural environment, the spa utilises indigenous ingredients in innovative rituals based on the phases of the moon and speaking to the island’s Amerindian heritage.
Marigot Bay Marina accommodates some of the most luxurious superyachts in the world, and guests of the resort are able to arrange exclusive charters. Proud members of the Preferred Hotels and Resorts’ LVX Collection and American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts, the resort’s magnificent setting places guests nearby St Lucia’s majestic rainforests and iconic UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pitons, providing easy access to activities including water sports, horseback riding, fishing, diving and hiking.
At the centre of the Marina Village, the Hurricane Hole is the beating heart of the bay featuring breakfast, lunch, dinner and a full bar and food described as relaxed and “fun”. The menu features a wide selection of appetizers, sandwiches and crafted cocktails by expert mixologist. The pastry chef prepares freshly baked treats complemented by exotic ice-creams.
But this is just the beginning of the story. At Marigot Bay guests are encouraged to look beyond the walls of the formal restaurants and to enjoy all of the fabulous locations the resort has to offer.
Guests choose the time and the place and the resort’s talented chefs will devise a personalised menu to suit their occasion and tastes.
Whether it’s an intimate dinner a deux in the stunning treehouse, a celebration dinner surrounded by lush garden foliage at the Palm Pavillion or in the more formal Boudreau Room, a romantic Champagne soiree on the dock surrounded by the crystal waters of the Caribbean, or a simple meal under the stars on the balcony of your suite, Marigot Bay’s culinary team can turn the most challenging request into an opportunity to shine.
