Daniel and Amanda From USA

What made you choose Saint Lu­cia?

Just go­ing through all the dif­fer­ent re­sorts, we wanted one that was re­laxed and ro­man­tic. We're newly-weds so that was im­por­tant. We fi­nally chose San­dals as it fit­ted the bill.

Have you "stayed at one, played at three"?

Yes, we're stay­ing at San­dals Grande but we've vis­ited Hal­cyon for a day and are plan­ning to spend some time at the La Toc re­sort too. They are all quite dis­tinct.

What tours have you taken?

We loved the Car­ni­val Sail­ing Wet and Wild tour to Soufriere, and we can't wait to go zi­plin­ing at Rain­for­est Ad­ven­tures as we've heard it's re­ally ex­cit­ing.

What is your im­pres­sion of the is­land?

The is­land is so beau­ti­ful. We'll def­i­nitely come back for an an­niver­sary to St. Lu­cia and maybe bring some fam­ily next time.

Jordi and Han­nah From UK

Is this your first time in Saint Lu­cia?

Yes! Our friend from col­lege is from the is­land so we came for a month to visit.

How do you like the is­land?

Oh it is amaz­ing! We have done so many things— snorkelling, div­ing, hang­ing out on the beach. We've taken a boa­tride to Soufriere and swam un­der a wa­ter­fall. We even went horse-rid­ing around the north coast which was fan­tas­tic. The scenery is fan­tas­tic and we can't get enough of the sun­shine!

Have you had any lo­cal food?

We've tried all sorts of things like bouil­lon and pump­kin soup—stay­ing with a Lu­cian fam­ily is the best way to eat like a lo­cal! Gros Islet is re­ally great for bar­be­cue and fresh seafood so we've eaten there a lot.

What has been your favourite ex­pe­ri­ence?

We've met so many new friends; the peo­ple are lovely and we feel re­ally wel­come. Car­ni­val was a real high­light. Our party watched the street pa­rade from a boat an­chored by the har­bour and had an in­cred­i­ble two days of "jumping up."

Mau­reen From Aus­tralia

What do you think about our is­land?

I like St Lu­cia—a LOT … I've been here four times in 27 years. I like that it’s laid back, I like the folks that live there. I par­tic­u­larly like the spec­tac­u­lar raw nat­u­ral beauty of the place…AND there's a Vol­cano.

What have you been do­ing this visit?

Far and away my favourite thing was bare-back horserid­ing in the sea—ev­ery­one was so chilled. Sec­ond favourite, and that’s a very close sec­ond, would be the Drive-in Vol­cano at Soufriere. To walk into an ac­tive (though ‘rest­ing’ I’ll grant you) vol­cano…that’s pretty spe­cial.

What do you like to east when you're here?

I love the fresh fish and seafood and fresh sal­ads etc. . I re­ally, re­ally like the salty Plan­tain Chips that are sold lo­cally, cos they are SO tasty (and I can't get them at home!)

Will you come back to Saint Lu­cia?

I'm sure I will! I am a pas­sion­ate pho­tog­ra­pher and pho­tograph­ing the is­land was on my wish­list, but this was a short visit so I just might have to come back soon!

Vis­i­tors to Saint Lu­cia find plea­sure in the sim­ple things, like re­lax­ing at the beach, near the pool or tak­ing in a lit­tle shop­ping. TT caught up with some new is­landers who were stay­ing at The Body Hol­i­day.
