The Landings comprises 21 terra-cotta-roofed buildings, all dotted around the resort’s private, luminous marina or fronting the 800 feet of sugar-sand beach. The four-story, dome-topped, open-air lobby features checkered sand and toffee marble flooring, a baby grand piano and a dramatic, grand staircase.
Bed and Bath
The 85 breezy villa suites are spacious and swanky (starting at 950 square feet), and they’re decked out in a cream, pink and rose color schemes, with four-poster beds, full gourmet kitchens (which can be stocked before arrival) with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops and Tuscan-inspired mosaics. Each villa suite features two oversize terraces or patios for taking in the stunning sea or marina views. The lavish bathrooms pamper guests with hydrotherapy tubs, separate glass-enclosed showers, and Green Park toiletries scented in neroli and cedar.
Days here are centered on sunbathing next to one of the three pools or on the beach, or enjoying an herbal coconut oil–infused massage at the 7,000-square-foot spa. For active types, tennis (pros can be called in for an additional fee) and free non-motorized water sports (snorkeling, kayaking, etc.) are all on offer. Sidle up to the new Turquoise Bar for classic cocktails, and when hunger strikes, head to the Palms, which pushes the definition of Caribbean fare in delicious new directions (think cinnamon smoked mahi mahi with piton beer barbecue sauce or jerk lobster seared and served with mild coconut sauce). Rather dine with a view? The alfresco Beach Club restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and for a taste of St. Lucian cuisine, try the new Callaloo eatery.
In the Area
Take to St. Lucia’s waters on a dolphin-watching cruise (lunch can be included for an additional fee) or book the all-day Soufrière Extravaganza, which is a catamaran sailing during which you can take in the island’s best sights, including the Pitons, the waterfalls and the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano. Back on land, explore trails cut through the tropical rain forest, which covers a large stretch of the southern half of the island. The scenic one-mile Barre de l’Isle Trail has four lookout points where the Atlantic and the Caribbean meet; it’s ideal for a family excursion. Or take on one of the two pyramid-shaped Pitons, St. Lucia’s most famous peaks. The challenging four-mile trek up 2,619-foot Gros Piton (the higher of the two) can be made only with a qualified guide. An early morning start is essential, since the trip can take anywhere from three to six hours.
How to Get There
Definitely not a person who really writes reviews but for the Landings in St. Lucia I just had to so here we go, I stayed at the landings last month from November 12th to the 18th. Well worth the 1.5 hr ride from the airport to the landings. Kendy was our driver both ways and was awesome, opt for the luxury ride and you will get a beer and cold towels. upon arriving at the hotel we were immediately greeted and offered a drink. The landings grounds and property are absolutely beautiful. The property is extremely well maintained. The staff at the landings couldn’t be more helpful,friendly, and easy to speak to, big shout out to Rolston, chef George,Sharmel, and Sheldon. They were great and so was everyone else. Wish I could remember some more names. Opted for the all inclusive and I gotta say the food was great at all the restaurant spots. Well worth it. We stayed in a marina from room that was super nice and always cleaned well by the maids. My wife and I traveled with out one year old daughter and it was very nice that the landings was so kid friendly and accommodating, I would definitely like to return to the landings soon, hopefully next year. to the general manager Paul Collymore, please commend your staff on the fine job they are doing at the landings.the landings,I will see you soon!

The Landings is a top-notch resort with beautifully appointed accommodations and fantastic food and service. It is approximately 1.5 hours from the airport. Be prepared for an interesting ride along the zigzagging coast. The food offered was a mix of many local favorites, as well as, more familiar items. The beach and water are stunning. Snorkeling and kayaking can't be beat.
My husband I stayed at The Landings (unfortunately, only for one night) to start our honeymoon trip (we stayed at Jade Mountain for the remainder). When I planned it, we were staying here so that we could go into the town for the Friday night street party - but the weather wasn't ideal and our room was so great we really felt no reason to leave.
Upon arrival we were greeted with delicious rum punch. My husband is Jamaican so it is hard to impress him with rum punch - but he had two!
Our room was gorgeous and came with a private outdoor hot tub right by the marina located within the resort.
Overall, the staff was incredibly kind, the food was good, and we were not ready to depart in the morning even knowing how amazing Jade Mountain was going to be.
Will definitely return.
This place is everything. The rooms are so clean and beautiful. Spent two nights there and didn't want to leave. We only ate at beach club because we fell in love with the food there the first night and didn't feel the need to try the others. Benjamin at the beach club was amazing. He helped us with everything and answered all our questions. Everyone else was really nice to us. Would really love to return to landings.
The Landings is secluded and far from the hustle and bustle of Castries and Soufriere. The whole place is beautiful...the buildings, the landscaping, the rooms, the pools, the beach. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. The lobby is grand and sets the stage for what's to come. Our unit was tastefully decorated with lovely furnishings and high end appliances. It was as if everything was brand new. We had a lovely marina view with a private hot tub. Both towels and chair covers were provided at the beach. There are plenty of chairs and umbrellas. While the restaurants are quite pricey, the food is good and having a few on-site options is nice for those lazy days when you don't feel like driving into town. There are also plenty of very good restaurants in Rodney Bay which is just a few minutes down the road. The spa was also wonderful. I think it was the best facial I've ever had and again the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Can't say enough good things about the Landings Resort and Spa.
