Stonefield Villa Estate Resort
St. Lucia’s 26-acre Stonefield Estate Villa Resort, in the shadow of the Pitons, has both incredible views and residential touches that are well-suited for families. The rainforest setting provides a dramatic backdrop for this 19-villa retreat; each colonial-style stone cottage has one to three bedrooms and a kitchenette, terrace, and our favorite amenities—a pool, private outdoor shower, and hammock with views of the mountains. Explorers will love the activities: The location is just five minutes from the start of forest trails that meander to the Pitons, and the hotel’s concierge can help arrange snorkeling, diving, and sailing excursions in the Caribbean Sea. Or take the complimentary shuttle to central Soufriere, the island’s quaint colonial town.
