Rendezvous Resort St. Lucia
The stunning Rendezvous resort is wrapped up in history, starting life as a family home for a planter on a large coconut estate. Over the last 40 years the property grew in size and became the first all-inclusive resort on the island. Rendezvous is now known as a place of luxury for couples seeking romance and glamour on their St Lucia getaway. The hotel places importance on providing guests with an island oasis, allowing adults to spend precious quality time together. As well as an outdoor pool, Rendezvous features a secret garden with private nooks and crannies, as well as a luxurious spa with a long list of restorative treatments.
The only resort on a two-mile stretch of beach, Rendezvous is a unique haven for those wanting to escape to somewhere peaceful. The hotel is set on seven acres of lush tropical gardens, helping make guests feel like they are in a world of their own. In reality, Rendezvous sits a 10-minute drive away from the capital of Castries, giving plenty of options for guests to experience local Caribbean life and its rich culture. Just north of the hotel via a 20-minute drive is Rodney Bay, which is home to a wide array of restaurants, bars and a casino. The international airport is a 75-minute drive away, while the famous Pitons and various hiking trails can be reached by a 90-minute coastal drive.
The accommodation at Rendezvous has been recently refurbished, giving each room a modern and homely feel. There are a variety of Garden View Rooms, Beachfront Rooms, Seaside Suites, Cottages and Luxury Suites to choose from, with each room boasting soft furnishings in relaxing, muted colours. A mini fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, an iPod docking station and clock radio can also be found in each room, alongside en suite facilities consisting of a toilet, shower and vanity unit. Luxury beachfront rooms feature a balcony with its own hammock, while seaside suites and beachfront cottage have a private deck.
Food and Drink
Rendezvous encourages romantic get-togethers over a meal to remember, with several restaurants on-site to choose from. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be enjoyed in the Terrace Restaurant, where locally grown ingredients are used to create a concoction of international and Caribbean dishes. By night, guests tuck into meals over a candlelit dinner, all while watching the sun set over the ocean. For something even more special, the hotel features The Trysting Place, an à la carte restaurant that serves a fusion of international flavours on fine bone china. Lastly, there are three bars to choose from during your stay: swim up to the Pool Bar for refreshing poolside drinks, relax in the shade at the Terrace Bar, and enjoy a nightcap at the late-night Champagne Bar.
Sports, Games and Entertainment
Rendezvous offers a wide mix of relaxing areas and entertaining activities, allowing the best of both worlds for guests. An on-site tennis pro is available to offer advice on your serves and your returns, while a series of water sports can be sampled, such as SCUBA diving, sailing and wakeboarding.
