After several months of searching for a wedding destination, we found this romantic
paradise hidden in the mountains of Soufiere among papaya, banana, mango, coconut and many other tropical trees and flowers. The cottages have a magnificent view of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea. We stayed in Sugar Cane and felt very comfortable and relaxed without having that "hotel" feel. The decor was remarkable and impressive to say the least. We enjoyed the private plunge pool that had a great view of the Pitons and tropical hillside. Breakfast was brought to our cottage every morning with fresh baked breads by Arlette, who was always very personable, fruits and always something different each day with a warm greeting. After meeting Monica and Martin, we felt as though we'd been friends forever. They are both great fun and entertaining and we enjoyed all the times they spent with all the guests in the Tree Top Bar, words cannot describe what an amazing fun place it is. We decided this was the ultimate wedding/honeymoon location after viewing pictures and speaking directly with Monica. After several emails and questions, she said "darling" don't worry she would handing everything, and she did. She made our beach wedding a magical nite that was more than we could have ever imagined. She personally handled everything from the paperwork, preparing our "wedding dinner", (homemade french onion soup, coconut chicken and rum wedding cake with homemake coconut ice cream), doing our flowers, which words cannot describe how beautiful they were. All local tropical flowers in pinks, reds, whites, oranges and greenery, all very contemporary. The small reception was held in the Tree Top Bar and decorations and flowers were very romantic and straight from the rainforest. They had a small band and Martin joined in for some island songs, dancing and of course "RUM PUNCH". Martin was very fun and played some music on his guitar, bongos and keyboard. What a nite to remember. Both of them have exceptional talents that come together that made our wedding seem like a fairytale. We are looking foward to a return trip soon.
