My husband and I went to St. Lucia for the first time over Christmas and spent weeks researching places to stay. We were looking for an intimate, boutique property with an incredible view and we found all that - and much more - at Nature's Paradise! The owners, David and Wanda, could not have been more helpful or hospitable. From the moment we arrived to St. Lucia, where a driver David had arranged was waiting to pick us up (on Christmas Day no less!), we felt completely at home. If you are looking for a large, all-inclusive resort with tons of amenities and no interaction with the locals, then please stay at Sandals....there's three of them on the Island! However, if what you are looking for is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience on the beautiful island of St. Lucia, then I can't recommend Nature's Paradise highly enough.
The property is surrounded by beautiful, lush foliage providing privacy and a true tropical feel. From the pool, you have a breathtaking view overlooking the Caribbean Sea and my husband enjoyed swimming a few laps here every morning. Breakfast is served promptly at 8 a.m. each weekday and we thoroughly enjoyed the spread of fresh, local fruit (papayas, pineapple and grapefruit, oh my!) cheese, coffee, tea and homemade bread baked by Wanda. It was a perfect way to start each day in St. Lucia and we valued spending this time with David and Wanda and the two or three other couples who were staying at Nature's Paradise (there's only four guest rooms on the entire property). We would all swap stories from the previous day and share recommendations for tours and activities we enjoyed. After breakfast, my husband and I would head out on a different adventure (many either recommended or coordinated directly by David). From ziplining in the rainforest to sailing along the Southern coast of St. Lucia to hiking Gros Piton, St. Lucia has so much to offer and we tried to take advantage of it all!
Finally, probably one of our favorite things about Nature's Paradise was the fact that there were no TVs in the rooms/cottages. WiFi and cell service is very spotty, as well, though there is a computer in the Great Room that is available for guests to use and access the internet. However, for us, having an opportunity to truly "disconnect" was the best thing we could have possibly done. It allowed us to completely enjoy our time in St. Lucia, and with each other, and we returned home to NC six days later feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and totally stress-free. We hope to recreate this experience and return to St. Lucia very soon and when we do, we will definitely be returning to Nature's Paradise!
