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
We celebrated my husband's birthday & our 25th wedding Anniversary. Even prior to our arrival, we were contacted by SARA TOUBIA one of the personal assistants. She arranged our spa appointment, a rum tasting & decorated our room for our anniversary & husband's birthday. She made everything so easy and we felt truly spoiled. Everything was wonderful. The views, the food, the staff. André who did the Rum tasting at the rum cave was top notch. Marigot Bay is 5 star because of people like Sara, Chris, & Andre as well as the natural beauty that surrounds you there. June seems to be the slow season, but I enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere and extra attention due to less guests. This also caused several restaurants in the area to close, but they still had plenty of options nearby and onsite. The marina is beautiful, the pools delightful, and do try the spa if you can. We did a couples facial and the facility was unique and relaxing. We weren't there nearly long enough, but I recommend this for those looking for a relaxing resort ready to pamper you.
What a beautiful place! The rooms, the friendly and accommodating staff , maintenance of property, beautiful grounds and setting, consideration of every convenience and comfort...everything was perfect. We are seasoned travelers and hard to impress but consider Marigot Bay as one of the best places we have ever stayed!
We stumbled upon the Marigot Bay Resort and Marina after staying somewhere else north on the island for an evening. We quickly switched to the Marigot Bay Resort, and we were overwhelmed by how great this place was. The photos do not even do this place justice. Walking in the resort is calming and zen, sitting a top a beautiful bay with amazing boats. We stayed in a two room suite which was spacious and modern. The shared living and kitchen space had an upscale bungalow feel. The bedrooms also had plenty of space with a large bathroom in each of the two closed off bedrooms. For a family of 4 with two daughters in their twenties this was a perfect set up. Beyond the rooms the remaining facilities were clean and beautiful. We loved both pools and the dining areas were great as well. The variety of food - sushi, the grille, tapas, the restaurants in the marina and surrounding area was great for anyone who did not want to venture too far. The service was the best part by far, the staff members were lovely and wanted to ensure that you were having a great time. They were attentive and always quick to assist whether it be a problem or booking activities. Truly no complaints about this resort! We will definitely be returning.
The resort was nice,calm and clean. The food was ok wasn't anything spectacular. The staff was fine. Just outside the resort expect to be harassed daily to buy things or water taxi or whatever. Room cleaning was fine they did a wonderful job only thing is would have been cool if they came at the same time daily. The beach is easily accessible using the boat shuttle. The beach however is tiny if 6 people were in the water if would seem crowded lol but on a positive It is private except for the vendors once again. For what you pay to stay I don't expect to be harassed the resort should do something about that.
Staff was kind and food was good on the resort and just outside the resort. On our first day we found a mama Kitty and her 3 babies that lived under our room. Naturally, I did my best to take care of them during my stay. Fed them and cleaned babies eyes when they allowed us to pick them up. Mama Kitty slowly warmed up to me and came when I called and made some noises with my mouth. We found her and babies playing on our porch in the morning waiting for us to feed them 😊. So if you stay at 1102 or near it maybe you can pay it forward to the kitties. They deserve some lovin' ❤️
