My day-to-day job in reservations meant that I was booking guests to come and stay at Rendezvous on a weekly basis so when I had the opportunity to go for my own holiday, I jumped at the chance. I travelled to St Lucia with my partner who had never been to the island before and I was very excited to have my first ‘non-working’ trip to the island.
When we landed at Hewanorra airport we met the team at the Rendezvous desk who took our bags, provided us with cold towels and took us to the transfer, the transfer itself took around an hour but we didn’t mind as the scenery on route was stunning. Our driver was super friendly and gave us a running commentary of where we were and what we were looking as we drove along the west coast of the island which was a lovely way to start our stay
Upon arrival at the hotel, we knew we’d made the right choice to stay here! We were greeted by the butlers who took our luggage and walked us through the gardens to the hotels front desk where we were handed some well received welcome drinks. The lobby area is fully open and has stunning views of the beach and ocean which was the welcome we both wanted, we were then given our room keys and taken over to the Luxury Beachfront Cottage where we would spend the rest of the week!
The room itself was perfect; there was an oversized king bed in the middle with large bath room and our own dedicated sunlounges on the beach in front of us, what more could you want?! I was more than happy to sit in the sun with a mojito and relax for the full 7 days but my partner did need to have something to do so he spent a lot of time at the water sports centre. During our stay he got his PADI certificate and went out on a couple of the complimentary dives which he really enjoyed
The food was one of the highlights of our time at Rendezvous, our favourite restaurant was Malabar Beach Club where we went for lunch or dinner every day. The ‘toes in the sand’ experience and open-air kitchen was really unique and we had the catch of the day, every day! Another highlight was the champagne bar where we went for the complimentary champagne tasting every night before dinner before 6pm and 7pm, perfect end to the day.
Our stay at Rendezvous really gave us the chance to switch off from our everyday life, turn off our phones and enjoy the beautiful Caribbean weather. The staff made our stay what it was, they remembered our names and what we liked to drink from day one and were always on hand whenever we needed anything. I would highly recommend Rendezvous to any couple looking to escape their busy everyday life and we can’t wait to return!
