Get in touch with nature at this open-plan resort, where lodges blend into the verdant hillside and spaces seamlessly flow into one another like a meandering Caribbean breeze. The lobby has contemporary wicker furniture and cobblestone columns and overlooks a little bridge leading to the marina. Local artworks grace the common areas, including wooden sculptures by Vincent Joseph Eudovic, one of the Caribbean’s most revered artists. The Pink Snail Bar — it’s name is a nod to the 1967 film Doctor Dolittle, which was shot on the property — has production stills and pink snail wall lights that add to the festive yet laid-back island atmosphere.
Bed and Bath
The simplicity of the interior spaces is juxtaposed against the vibrant, lush surroundings: the variety of foliage, white yachts coming and going, the blues and greens of the sky and sea. Retreat into the luxurious, low-lit, minimalist guestrooms, which have dark, contemporary furniture; floral paintings add a pop of color. The balconies are spacious, and some suites have outdoor Jacuzzis. Functional black and white bathrooms have dual sinks and rainfall showers and feature Pedregal bath products. Canopy beds with mosquito netting recall the island’s colonial days and allow for the option of sleeping with the windows open.
Head chef Victor Garrido, a new addition to the resort, serves fusion dishes and strives to use local and seasonally available island ingredients (plantains, salt fish and callaloo). Try the cassava-and-thyme-crusted chicken breast with pumpkin-coconut risotto at Boudreau restaurant, which offers fine dining in a chandelier-lit French Colonial setting. The Hurricane Hole Bar is a casual place to enjoy a rum punch and a light bite. The Auriga spa offers treatments using all-natural local products, such as palm husk and sea moss, and a volcanic energy massage with volcanic stones.
In the Area
St. Lucia Distillers, which produce some of the island’s best rum and offers tours, is a 15-minute drive. For island-inspired dishes, take a free boat ride across the bay to Rainforest Hideaway. If you’re feeling adventurous, go for a zipline tour of the island, or drive an hour to Soufriere’s sulphur springs, where you can tour the world’s only drive-in volcano, exfoliate with natural mud and luxuriate in the hot spring waters. Near Soufriere, take in the iconic Pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that encompasses two volcanic spires rising from the sea.
How to Get There
Our Trip was EXTRAORDINARY! Everyone truly was amazing and made us feel so welcomed and LOVED!
Even before our stay, it felt 'right'.' Tricia (our personal assistant) not only reached out to us before our stay to offer all the amenities available, but to help in setting up airport transportation and excursions offered through the resort, but she helped with every detail we would not have thought of ourselves!
We trusted her fully and for good reason! Everything she recommended was exactly PERFECT for us and what we hoped to experience while visiting! The driver Trica requested for us was a Great fit and help us to fully experience the Island like a local while off property. We truly made great memories while at all the excursions she set up for us! Tricia truly made our stay effortless and PERFECT! Everything we'd hoped for!
Overall, we are really happy and loved our time in St. Lucia at Marigot Bay Resort/Marina. The grounds are beautiful and the view is breathtaking! If we ever return to this Country, which we hope to soon, there will not be hesitation as to where we stay!!
I have stay at 95% of all the resort on the island and i truly enjoyed my stay . I felt so welcome and special. They staff was friendly and courteous. The food was great nice variety and the ambiance was perfect. Like an escape to a tropical paradise with hint of romance . I wish i had time do the spa but am going back for sure. And i loved the room upgrade. Thank yoh
So where do I start?
My boyfriend and I wanted to visit St. Lucia for my birthday and ended up booking to stay at Marigot Bay Resort and Marina for a week. We had looked at previous reviews and understood that the resort was in a quiet part of town but we are from NYC so that's exactly what we were looking for.
The hotel sets you up with a personal assistant, in our case was Trisha. She called us a couple of days prior to our arrival and got our flight information and set up all of our airport transfers. Once at the hotel it was super easy and someone was already waiting for us and knew us by name. Our driver, Charles was amazing and gave us a mini tour during our drive to the hotel. Once at the hotel, everyone was super welcoming and nice. Because we went during their low season, they upgraded us to a marina view room, which was incredible. Everyone's so hospitable and they made sure to make my birthday incredible. They knew us everywhere by first names and must have sang happy birthday to be at least 15 times. They arranged for flowers, champagne, and chocolate in the room. In addition, Trisha and the chef work alongside my boyfriend to create a customized menu for our private dinner at the treehouse, which I must add was absolutely incredible. Trisha also coordinated all of our taxis and helped us with booking the excursions. Alita at the breakfast restaurant was amazing and made sure that we were happy and had everything we needed. I left so happy with the place it 100% surpassed my expectations.
food outside the resort isn't great so after a couple of bad experiences we decided to avoid it altogether.
we had a bad experience dealing with a local when we ventured off to a more remote part of the island
