Hello friends!! Today I am sharing all the deets on our getaway to St. Lucia. We truly had the best time and we cannot wait to go back! I wanted to recap our stay at Marigot Bay Resort and all that we did! It was truly a blast.
Let me start out by saying a little bit about the resort, Marigot Bay. This place was so beautiful. I felt like I was in the rainforest but so tropical and private. The staff was hands down AMAZING. They truly have the kindest staff and everyone was so helpful. We even had a gardener show us all the way to the spa, truly so sweet. The resort has 2 pools, a full spa, 3 restaurants, a hair salon, beach, workout classes, and so much more. Our view from our room was one of a kind and having coffee every morning was all the heart eyes.
I want to break down each day we spent here to give you a little more detailed spill on our vacay!!
TRAVEL DAY. (stay tuned for my what to pack when traveling internationally soon!)
We started off the day with breakfast at Hurricane Hole, one of the 3 restaurants at the resort you can eat at. The breakfast was delicious, and we sat by the water which was perfect!
After breakfast we went back to the main pool and ordered the watermelon mojito (DELICIOUS, but make sure you ask for alcohol if you are wanting that!) Grant and I then hit the spa for our couples massage. Let me just tell you it was EVERYTHING !!!!! The massage was absolutely wonderful and so relaxing to start out our vacation. The spa is right on the resort but in it’s own little area.
After getting a little TLC, we headed out to the main pool area to soak up some sun!! The pool has a swim up bar and you can order drinks and food from here! I totally recommend getting the sushi poolside because it was SO GOOD. (Also hot tip if you stay here: they have a drink served in a coconut but its only served till 12)
For Dinner we went to The Grill, another restaurant at the resort. I highly recommend getting the tuna tartare, mushroom chicken was delish, and wedge salad!
Monday was literally the best day ever! We rented a catamaran through the resort rentals and hit the water for the day! The best part is you can literally do whatever you want! We had a captain and 2 deckhands and they were SO awesome!! The boat day includes drinks and food. We started out just exploring sea and then hit an island to snorkel. The views of the islands were so beautiful while riding around.
After our lunch on the boat we headed to Sugar Beach. If you visit St. Lucia I highly highly recommend going here for a day/afternoon. It was my cup of tea: boujee + picture perfect. HOT TIP: If you go there is a man with a yellow kayak and he is serving daiquiris. You will make a big mistake if you do not get one from him – BEST DRINK I EVER TASTED. We then also ate at the restaurant on Sugar Beach and it was great! The views, drinks, and food just could not be beat.
You can also go snorkeling on Sugar Beach, swim around, or hang out on the beach. There are also cute little shops to buy gifts etc on the island. We left Sugar Beach after a few hours and headed back to sea to watch the sunset go down. The boat day could not have been better, we all said it was the best day! We watched the sunset, had a dance party, and all jumped into the ocean.
Tuesday was our last full day in St. Lucia (cue the tears). We woke up and went to the buffet breakfast at the Grill at the resort. HOT TIP: Go here for breakfast and get the banana bread !!!! The view while eating here is so pretty and relaxing. They also make omelettes to order and they are 100.
After breakfast we explored the resort taking some content pictures. The resort is on the bay, but there is a boat that runs 24/7 to the beach right across from the resort so you can go to the beach if you do not want to go to the pool. For our last day we hit the pool back up and grabbed a cabana. There are a good amount of cabanas here so I highly recommend trying to grab one. We spent the rest of the day soaking in the sun, drinking pina coladas, and cooling off in the pool.
For our last night, they were having a BBQ + a fire show. We headed down to see what it entailed, and it was pretty cool. There were local fire dancers who put on a show. We then headed back to the Rum Cave for drinks to end the night off.
The next morning we left the beautiful views of Marigot Bay Resort, but we cannot wait to come back!! I highly recommend this resort. There was so much it offered and it was honestly a little slice of heaven. We cannot wait to go back and visit.
