St Lucia, with it’s two majestic active volcanos, the Pitons – Gros and Petit – anchor this tropical jewel of the Eastern Caribbean. Historically the island changed hands between the French and English with the English ultimately prevailing. Napoleon’s wife, 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. This resort has a fickle beach, short and narrow often with wave action that makes ocean access difficult. However to compensate there is a magnificent pool, one of the largest in the Eastern Caribbean, 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. Sunset Bluff, a short walk from the central part of the resort, is the home of Butler Suites and Club Level concierge suites. The complex has it’s own pool, bar and restaurant – Armandos – specializing in Italian cuisine.
There are 9 tantalizing restaurants at this resort. My favorites: Neptunes for casual outdoor dining with seating over the beach. For Parisian inspired cuisine, La Toc is a must. And Kimonos, a two-story Oriental restaurant tucked into the side of a cliff, features Teppanyaki cooking style that creates a truly memorable experience.
