Helicopter Transfer from Airport to Rendezvous Resort

Hi

Due to visit the Rendezvous resort and thinking of taking the helicopter transfer from the airport to the hotel could someone please let me know where it lands at and how near this is to the hotel.

Many Thanks

The helicopter transfer will take you from the Hewanorra (UVF) long haul airport in the south to the smaller George F L Charles (SLU) airport at Vigie in the north. The helicopter landing site is at one end of the airport, and Rendezvous is at the other end of the airport. It will take 5 minutes by taxi from the helicopter site at SLU to Rendezvous.

We have booked with St lucia holidays and they organise so that the taxi is waiting for us when we arrive. The cost of the taxi ti rendezvous is $8 US, which is not included in the helicopter price.

Hi, I am also thinking of booking the helicopter transfer and wondered if the helicopter also transfers your luggage. I recently sent an email to St Lucia Helicopters asking about availability and cost, but did not receive a reply.

St Lucia Helicopters will arrange for land transfer of your luggage direct to your hotel.

I do not think I would need this service as I have booked my holiday with Virgin, who will be transfering other guests to the Rendezvous from the airport.

After an 8-9 hour flight, I can't wait for the quick transfer with the helicopter instead of the coach journey.

I think you may have mis-understood me, when I said that I do not need the service, I meant the tranfer of the luggage by St Lucia Helicopters.

I agree after and 8 - 9 hour flight, I would also love to get to the Rendezvous as soon as possible. Virgin would be able to take the luggage if required.

Nover been in a helicopter before, so can't wait.
