While the other two resorts have lovely locations, the Sandals in St. Lucia is on one of the most beautiful coves in the Caribbean and I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a better beach-resort location. The island of St. Lucia is arguably the most scenic of all of the Caribbean islands, although the famous twin peaks of the Pitons are a long way from the resort.
Generally speaking, St. Lucia is a more pleasant island than Jamaica, and it has that faraway vacation feel that is more dramatic than even at Sandals South Coast. If I had plenty of time to get here and at least 4 or 5 nights to stay, I’d choose Sandals St. Lucian for my overwater bungalow holiday.
The disadvantages are the longer flight time (about 3.5 hours longer from New York), not to mention more expensive flights. On the other hand, St. Lucia is almost two hours closer to most European airports, so this place is a good alternative to the Maldives and MUCH closer than Bora Bora.
Overwater bungalows location
The overwater bungalows are along the southern edge of the St. Lucian resort. Unlike the other two resorts where the overwater bungalows are out over a lagoon, the 9 water villas are simply out off of a peninsula at this resort. You aren’t properly out over the water until you are inside the bungalow itself.
To be honest, the overwater bungalows here don’t look as amazing as the others from the outside, but once you are inside that all changes. Inside they are huge and the locations are amazing. Again, you are behind a security checkpoint so the only other guests you’ll usually see are your immediate neighbors.
