You might say that this 49-room hacienda, with hilltop views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring island, Martinique, has two distinct personalities. Thanks to its location on the island’s northern coast, the former 1,500-acre sugar plantation exudes a sense of peace and quiet. Rustic-chic rooms are done up in white, mango, and deep coral, with hand-painted tiles on private terraces; airy public spaces are lined with oil paintings by St. Lucian painter Sir Dunstan St. Omer , who also designed the country’s national flag. But come Friday evening, the resort is just minutes from the island’s “jump-ups,” well-known Friday night street parties at various locations around Gros Inlet. These all-inclusive parties, populated by locals and tourists alike, are highlighted by a lively combination of reggae, street vendors, barbecue chicken, and local Piton beer.
