6 Best St. Lucia Honeymoon Resorts
Finding the perfect St. Lucia honeymoon stay or wedding destination will be a piece of cake with our list of the very best resorts available to book right now (listed in no particular order).
Read on for all the juicy details and start planning today.
Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort | Soufriere
Located amongst the majestic UNESCO World Heritage-designated Pitons, the Sugar Beach Viceroy Resort stretches out along two jaw-dropping white sands Caribbean beaches fringed by 100 acres of tropical rainforest.
As you might imagine, this 5-star resort is nothing short of exceptional.
Mind-blowing views? Oh yeah. Luxury cottages, villas, and beachfront bungalows? You bet! Private plunge pools? Check. Personalized butler service. Yep, that too!
Plus top-rated spa, world-class waterfront dining options, full Scuba center, and all the modern amenities you’d expect from a 5-star resort.
A true bucket list stay and dream destination for the perfect St. Lucia honeymoon.
HOT TIP ▸ It may not surprise you that the most desirable rooms at Sugar Beach get booked up quick, so you’ll want to reserve your stay as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Ladera Resort | Soufriere
Have you ever dreamed of basking in your own private luxury suite on the side of a lush volcano 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea? For guests at Ladera Resort, that’s just the beginning.
Balancing an eco-conscious philosophy with modern luxury, Ladera is a St. Lucia honeymoon resort stay like no other.
Rooms utilize an open wall design, meaning they’ve quite literally done away with that pesky sea-facing fourth wall (along with not-so-eco-friendly A/C), inviting the wonderful St. Lucia Caribbean Sea breeze and stunning Pitons into your room.
Feeling hungry? Head over to Ladera’s award-winning Dasheene Restaurant, consistently rates as one of the best restaurants in St. Lucia and beyond.
All-inclusive options, plunge pools, and choice of mountain or sea view available.
HOT TIP ▸ As mentioned, each room utilizes an open wall design, affording unparalleled views and maximum breeze. But the amount of breeze does vary from room to room. Temps cool off considerably at night, but if you plan to visit in the warmer months (May – October) and plan to hunker down in the day time, request a room with superior airflow.

Best Time of Year to Book a St. Lucia Honeymoon Stay
Many regular and repeat visitors will say there’s never a bad time to visit St. Lucia, so long as you don’t forget travel insurance.
But the reality is that some months are just more ideal for visiting the island, particularly if you’re planning the perfect St. Lucia honeymoon.
If weather is your main concern, late December to early June are almost certain to tick that box. Expect ample opportunities to enjoy blue skies with little rainfall, refreshing sea breezes, and temps ranging from mid-70s to mid-80s.
The downside? Cost. Visiting in May or June may bring nightly rates down a bit if you have flexibility on your side. Unfortunately, there are often far more considerations that must be weighed when nailing down the date of your honeymoon.
While cost is certainly important, you may want to avoid booking a “great deal” between July and November, as this is storm season for St. Lucia and the rest of the Caribbean. You could get lucky, but you could also get very unlucky. When it comes to your honeymoon, you may not want to chance it.
Don’t Take Chances With Your Honeymoon. Insure Your Trip!!!
Severe weather (like hurricanes and even tropical storms) is just one of many reasons you won’t want to forget travel insurance. It’s your honeymoon, after all!
Make sure you have a solid policy that covers all of the activities you plan to do (psst…often SCUBA diving isn’t included in the basic plan).
Most folks’ health insurance in the U.S. won’t cover you overseas for even basic care, so look for a policy that offers overseas health coverage and medical evacuation as well.
Honeymoons also tend to be one of the most expensive trips couples take (and a St. Lucia honeymoon is certainly no exception). A good travel insurance policy will ensure that much of your financial losses are recuperated if disaster strikes.
For short-term travel, we’ve been using World Nomads for over a decade and have always been pleased with our experience.
Important Considerations for LGBTQ Travelers to Saint Lucia
As with many destinations in the region, Saint Lucia’s laws and cultural attitudes towards those identifying as LGBTQ aren’t exactly welcoming (but that doesn’t mean your resort won’t be!).
While it is rare for LGBTQ couples visiting Saint Lucia to experience serious problems during their stay, it is important that LGBTQ visitors be aware of Saint Lucian laws and cultural sentiments relevant to their circumstances.
With that said, things do appear to be changing, with the first Castries Gay Pride celebration being held in 2019, and a growing number of top St. Lucia honeymoon resorts building their reputations on catering to LGBTQ visitors.
