WINTER SUN IN SAINT LUCIA
BY SARA DARLING
The world has had its stuffing knocked out of it this year, so if you are considering somewhere to bury your head in the sand and assess the situation, the stunning surroundings of the Marigot Bay Resort in Saint Lucia might be the ideal antidote.
Described as “the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean” by novelist James A Michener, he has a point! The private bay is peppered with super yachts and luxury boutiques, whilst holiday makers revel in the hammocks or hire kayaks or stand up paddle board from the nearby island. And when the sun sets, what could be better than sipping a rum under the stars, being entertained by fire eaters and local dancers, whilst tucking into an eat as much as you want buffet on the marina?
The Caribbean provides the dream getaway for some winter sun in secluded surroundings whilst enjoying long balmy nights which seem a world away from the stress of the UK.
Popular with families, friends, and honeymooners alike, the spacious resort is has 57 Residences and 67 Junior Suites to choose from- most with spacious balconies, outdoor hot tubs and extensive views of the bay or lush tropical gardens.
Not only does the Caribbean have one of the lowest Covid infection rates in the world, and a quarantine-free return to the UK, the Marigot Bay resort is offering a special winter deal. Stay for seven nights, and pay for just five. Or, if you have more time up your sleeve, stay for 14 nights and pay for 10.
The island itself is opening up more and more every day and travellers need only to produce a negative PCR test no more than 7 days before travelling and complete an online pre-arrival form, and great news is that TUI will start flying to the island again the first week of November and has some killer fares… the longer you stay, the cheaper the fare. Stay for 14 nights and the return fare is under £500.
