Villa Beach Cottages
Villa Beach Cottages is a unique, boutique beachfront hotel in the island of St. Lucia. A cluster of colonial style villa suites nestled among the coconut trees of Choc Bay on the northwest coast, just feet from the Caribbean Sea.
The lush tropical landscape, effervescent flowers and shady coconut palms frame the property and create an intimate and seductive island retreat. The luxurious villa suites enjoy cooling sea breezes, beautiful panoramic views, and guests enjoy the very best in St. Lucian hospitality. The villa suites at Villa Beach Cottages are fully self-contained and offer self-catering facilities. They are designed to give a sense of seclusion yet are minutes away from many convenient dining, shopping and entertainment areas.
Villa Beach Cottages sits on a beautiful golden sandy beach kissed by the Caribbean Sea. For relaxation beach chaise loungers, umbrellas, cushions and beach towels are provided free of charge. There is a beach bar and restaurant next to Villa Beach Cottages along the beach. It also boasts a picturesque small plunge pool with waterfall and extensive decking, and a full-size swimming pool fed by the constant flow of a river rock waterfall that pours first into an inviting heated jacuzzi and then into the cool clear water.
Anse Chastanet sits in an idyllic spot on St Lucia’s south western coast and encompasses 600 lush tropical acres including the historical French Colonial plantation of Anse Mamin with excellent, easily accessible bird watching opportunities right on the resort property. The estate borders two soft sand beaches and the resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colourful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish. The two magical peaks of the Pitons, leap from the sea and the mountains are covered with luminous greenery.
Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy believes passionately in nature, so he has created a hotel that makes the foliage and the flowers, the perfumes and the peaks, the sea and the bird song an integral part of your holiday experience. With such a unique setting as his canvas, Nick Troubetzkoy was inspired to design a one-of-a-kind resort. He was committed to an environmentally conscious development before “green” became fashionable. A dozen rooms are tucked in behind the coconut palms that line the beach and the remainder tiptoe up a flower decked hillside. To make the most of the panoramic views and the refreshing tradewinds, octagonal whitewashed cottages come with wraparound flower draped balconies and louvered windows.
Situated down a long winding road above the secluded bay of Anse Cochon on the West coast of St. Lucia, Ti Kaye is built into the hillside and all 33 cottage rooms face the ocean with wide verandahs, double hammocks and outside garden showers. The name means little house and that’s what the resort looks like; a village of pretty little wooden houses with fret work details sprinkled among tropical gardens. What they offer is total privacy and tranquillity.
Steps lead down to the beach, seaside grill and excellent dive centre and this is also one of the island’s best snorkelling spots. Food and wine play a huge part of the Ti Kaye experience. Another outstanding aspect of the property is the amazing spa with its two Balinese masseuses. The exquisite design features a glass wall, which allows an uninterrupted view of the ocean. As you lie on your front they have placed a mirror next to a bowl of fresh flowers below, so as you are being massaged and relaxed you have the added pleasure of looking at a reflection of the sea and sky. It doesn’t get much better than this!
