St Lucia, with it’s two majestic active volcanos, the Pitons – Gros and Petit – anchor this tropical jewel of the Eastern Caribbean.Â Historically the island changed handsÂ betweenÂ the French and English with the English ultimately prevailing.Â Napoleon’s wife,Â Empress Josephine, was born in the island of Saint Lucia and not Martinique as commonly supposed.
Sandals Regency La Toc located on the beach, hillside and bluff offers a variety of resort experiences including a 9 hole golf course.Â This resort has a fickle beach,Â shortÂ and narrow oftenÂ withÂ wave action that makesÂ ocean access difficult.Â However to compensate there is a magnificent pool,Â one of theÂ largest inÂ the Eastern Caribbean,Â located on the edge of the sea.
As a Seattle and Portland travel agent I have stayed in a wide variety of accommodations and locations at this resort.Â Sunset Bluff, a short walk from the centralÂ part of the resort, is the home of Butler Suites and Club Level concierge suites.Â The complex has it’s own pool, bar and restaurant – ArmandosÂ – specializing in Italian cuisine.
There are 9 tantalizing restaurants at this resort.Â My favorites:Â Neptunes forÂ casual outdoor dining with seating over theÂ beach.Â Â For Parisian inspired cuisine, La Toc is a must.Â Â And Kimonos, a two-story Oriental restaurant tucked into the side of a cliff, featuresÂ Teppanyaki cooking style that createsÂ a truly memorable experience.
