- Marigot Bay Hotel, in Castries, opens onto arguably the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean. It's a five-minute ferry ride to the beach.
- One of the best hotels on St. Lucia, the hillside Jade Mountain has 29 suites with pools, Jacuzzis, and panoramic views of the rainforest and water.
- On a clifftop outside of Soufrière, Ladera is another excellent property—a darling of the Hollywood set. Between the Pitons, the resort has breathtaking views of Jalousie Bay. Caveat: The beach is a 15-minute shuttle ride away.
- More affordable options include Sugar Beach, a Viceroy resort and Villa Beach cottages.
