C'est la Vie is small, secluded and very stylish. In all my years of international travel, I’ve never found a better place in which to unwind. Set in a tropical garden C'est la Vie has only five bedrooms, but world-class facilities – ranging from a private beach to a free form swimming pool with a waterfall to a beaming on-call butler for whom nothing is too much trouble. The food too is remarkable, combining as it does international flare and fresh island flavours, presented to a standard that wouldn't be out of place at a five star European hotel. Except that here it's very personalised and you can choose to dine on the veranda, under the stars at the water's edge or in the garden, serenaded by the tinkling chorus of a myriad tiny tree frogs. Mind you, the quality of the food came as no surprise when we learned that the chef had been trained by Birmingham-born Orlando Satchell, who took the acclaimed Dasheene restaurant into the Caribbean top ten restaurants in a Conde Nast Traveller poll. Bliss.

Our stay at C'est la Vie was the best land vacation we have ever had. I am in the travel industry so my experience is vast. From the moment we set foot on the property we knew it was going to be a 6 star luxury experience and it was. The staff is professional, unasuming and friendly. I would be amiss not to mention Oshea who was the icing on the cake. Fabulous grounds, spotlessly clean just a joy all the way around. Next years trip is already planned!

It was a dream come true vacation, and we were so impressed with C'est La Vie. The staff was so wonderful and friendly, and especially O'Shea was so professional and anticipated our every need. The food was outstanding. It was a perfect place to spend our first week of marriage. We are so grateful to stay there, in such beautiful, romantic surroundings. The property was lovely- landscaped with tropical gardens. Can't say enough wonderful things.
