Sparkling like a JewelDrink in some of the Caribbeans most iconic vistas
Sparkling like a jewel in the eastern Caribbean Sea, the island nation of Saint Lucia welcomes visitors with breathtaking scenery, crystal clear blue sea and picture perfect sandy beaches.
The Pitons, Saint Lucia’s iconic twin peaks, tower over the resort of Soufriere in the South, while Castries, the capital of the island, bustles with a vibrant market selling local crafts and tropical produce. Saint Lucia has it all, and it’s no wonder the island is fast becoming a favourite holiday destination for those in search of a little bit more.
A helicopter flight over the majestic Pitons is sure to take your breath away, with views of the island’s dramatic coastline thrown in. Alternatively, a drive into the volcano at Sulphur Springs will set your pulse racing, followed by a dip in the thermal pools to invigorate your body and senses with their mineral-rich waters. You can also take a trip to Pigeon Island, the place of the first French settler almost 500 years ago. It was originally a pirate base, then a garrison for French troops, and is now a national park protecting the remains of the garrison buildings.
For nature lovers, the Mamiku botanical gardens offer hundreds of species of flora, along with birdwatching tours and miles of hiking trails.
Thrill-seekers and sun-worshippers
Those feeling adventurous may want to take advantage of the wonderful breeze at Sandy Beach, perfect for the popular Saint Lucian activity of kitesurfing. A local guide will help you reach the top of either Petit Piton or Gros Piton – an energetic hike that is not for the faint-hearted, but well worth it for the stunning view from the top. A zip-wire flight through the dense island rainforest will certainly get the heart thumping, especially if you take the tour at night, flying through the canopy under starlit skies.
For a slower pace, and to soak up all the gorgeous Caribbean sun, there are plenty of idyllic beaches to choose from, lined with gently lapping blue sea and white sand. Snorkelling or scuba-diving come highly recommended to fully appreciate the beautiful underwater world and stunningly coloured tropical fish.
A vibrant nightlife
Blues, Jazz, Calypso and R&B feature prominently in Saint Lucian music culture. The islanders love to party and the annual Jazz Festival is a major part of the music calendar, as is the Carnival held in June each year. The experience of music, dancing, eating and drinking in the street is a must for carnival goers, along with some colourful and eye-catching costumes.
If you’re seeking a more relaxed and intimate dining experience, our resorts in Saint Lucia cater for every taste, from gourmet offerings, to traditional spicy Creole dishes such as fish stews and callaloo soup. Enjoy a fine dining experience at one of the many hillside restaurants with clear views across the city of Castries, or in the heart of the rainforest, where restaurants specialise in new and innovative dishes made using local produce like lionfish.
For a truly extraordinary experience, Azure’s luxury hotels in Saint Lucia offer a wide choice of accommodation to fit every expectation, with lavish and stylish suites, villas and apartments to give you holiday memories you will treasure forever.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
