Ti Kaye Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Anse Cochon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We recently visited Ti Kaye resort for our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The resort is small with individual cottages, perfect for privacy. From the restaurant overlooking the water, to the private beach, to the amazing cottages, this place is perfect. If you want to stay at a corporate monstrosity with no local feel and a thousand other guests, this place isn't for you. However, if you want an intimate resort with wonderful amenities and staff and a local feel, don't look anywhere else. We cannot say enough good things about the staff of this resort. Everyone from management, front desk, the wait staff, dive shop, boat crews, bartender, sommelier .....everyone was amazing. They were the most friendly people I have ever encountered and we truly thank them for making our trip so amazing. As a general rule, we like to visit new places when we leave the country, but because of the beauty of both St. Lucia and the Ti Kaye resort we are definitely looking forward to a return visit. Again, thanks so much to the entire staff, you are seriously the best around!

Hello James,

We greatly appreciate your 'excellent' review, and not only your review, but as I usually say in my little speeches at our complimentary Managers cocktail party on Wednesday evenings, for actually choosing Ti Kaye for your vacation destination.

Delighted to read that you cannot say enough good things about everybody (and apparently everything), so much so that you are looking forward to a return visit. A fantastic achievement especially as you usually like to visit new places.

We would be honored to add you to our (rapidly expanding)! list of return guests.

Kind regards,

Chris & Sarah

Ti Kaye was all we had hoped it would be for our 10th anniversary! The cottage was romantic, comfortable, well appointed, and perfectly situated for privacy and views. The outdoor shower and hammock were our favorites! Listening to the birds and tree frogs at night was a divine experience as well. From arrival to departure the staff was amazing--friendly and helpful with everything! Dining was excellent and met our picky standards--even the daily continental breakfast offered was a cut above. Entertainment in the evenings was nicely complementary to the meal instead of being too loud. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting--generous pours and great information--they have a gem in their sommelier. The beach was nice with decent snorkeling and the stairs to the beach, although a bit of a hike, was not overwhelming.
The thing that was most impressive, though, was the overall attention to detail throughout the resort-- greeting us by name, pitchers of ice water on the beach, fresh flowers in the room, offset ceiling fans in the cottage to blow into instead of around the bed, citronella candles (although we didn't need them for bugs), the variety of choices at breakfast--everything was so well thought out. We just had to show up and relax! I was greatly impressed and wish we could have stayed much longer. We will return!

Room Tip: We stayed in Estale and it was perfect!

Hi Elizabeth V,

As it happens, 'attention to detail' has been our 2014 focus so your review title is excellent. We have a little way to go still, but it's fantastic to read you noticed, and appreciated it.

We'll continue working on everything and hope to see you again, maybe for longer next time?

Thanks for your review.

Ti Kaye is a very lovely resort with a french chic laid back atmosphere and a good value. We loved our cottage with the big four poster bed w/ mosquito netting and the outdoor shower! The locally made bath amenities were a nice touch. Meals in the open air dining room overlooking the ocean were good and the dining room staff very attentive and friendly. Dinner had a sexy, candlelit atmosphere. We rented a car and the drive from the airport to Ti Kaye was maybe an hour, but so worth it for the beautiful scenery, especially in the Piton area and thru the rainforest. The road down to Ti Kaye is bumpy but not nearly as difficult as some describe here. It added to the adventure! A beautiful beach is very important to me, but unfortunately I didn't find the beach here very picturesque. The snorkeling and scuba were supposed to be very good here though. Also the pool is small and I didn't really see anyone using it. St. Lucia itself is lush and beautiful, and the people are very friendly.

Hi Kristina27516,

It's great to read reviews that highlight certain things that usually get overlooked (but we feel make a difference), such as our locally made (with local ingredients) bathroom amenities (and Spa products out of interest).

The snorkeling and scuba ARE very good, it's a shame you didn't get to try them as Anse Cochon (our beach) is one of the best snorkeling spots on the island.

Thanks for mentioning the friendliness of the Saint Lucian people - they are an asset to the country.

Kind regards,

Dear BWWW2014,

Thanks for your review, and kind subject title. It's great to read that you had such a wonderful vacation (as Ti Kaye is not your ordinary 'run of the mill' kind of resort) that we will not be forgotten.

We look forward to you both returning soon...

There are so many great reviews about Ti Kaye that I'm not going to repeat them all...they are all true. All I can say after a two week stay here is that we didn't want to leave...the maid almost had to push us out of the door of our wonderful cottage on departure day. Oh, and that the outdoor showers are totally amazing - I wish I never had to shower indoors again! Now that we are home again we are so sad that we are not at Ti Kaye anymore. We returned home to a family bereavement - all I want to do now is to return to Ti Kaye, shut out the real world, watch the birds and the sea, and relax. We will be returning, no doubt about that.

Room Tip: We had Doudou - a wonderful cottage right at the end of the grounds. However, expect other guests t...

Ti Kaye is amazing! Stayed here for a week with my wife; we're late-30s, married 6 years. It's small (~30 cottages), secluded (with the harrowing mile-long driveway to prove it), and beautiful. Our cottage was the picture of paradise, a private little residence tucked on the hillside overlooking a gorgeous Carribbean bay, with a hammock on the large deck, big four-poster bed, and outdoor shower. So charming - lets you really relax and soak up the tropical breezes.

There are two restaurants, and for such a small place off the beaten path, the food is remarkably good, with menus changing daily. Lots of activities to sign up for (tours, snorkeling, diving, etc.), so you're definitely not going to be bored (unless you want to be). The beach is semi-private, with plenty of chairs and umbrellas for all the hotel guests, but it is 160+ steps down from the resort. Certainly manageable, but not a trek you want to make more than once a day.

There's a beautiful spa overlooking the ocean, as well. Everything is immaculate, top-notch (if a little rustic). Kind of like tropical camping in luxury.

PRO TIP: All the guests will be couples (no children allowed), generally honeymooners or anniversary-ers. Many will have chosen this resort for its seclusion, i.e. not to make friends. However, if you would like to meet other couples so you have some other folks to talk to or hang out with, I strongly suggest signing up for the wine tasting on the first available evening. My wife and I did, and we met three other couples that night and very quickly bonded (not hard when you're drinking 10 glasses of wine). We ended up hanging out with them several nights: at dinner, drinks, even a little evening soiree at one of their cottages, drinking rum around their private plunge pool. Happy to say we made some good friends, which we didn't expect. Also, the sommelier Cleus was one of our favorite parts of the whole vacation!

The only negative thing I can say about Ti Kaye is that the service at both restaurants is slow. I know all about "island speed," but the servers don't check in enough to freshen drinks, that sort of thing. Such a minor thing, but had to be mentioned.

Room Tip: Rooms with private plunge pools seem to have the best views.

Well hello there Ryan P,

Happy to read you were able to 'relax in paradise'. Your review is very descriptive - which always helps potential future guests. Not sure I agree with the 'tropical camping in luxury' analogy though? As we have no tents, or campsites :-)

Thanks for brining to my attention the service at both restaurants. Although we are on an island (as in fact, a lot of countries are ... sometimes just BIG islands) we are not a fan of 'island speed'. 'Relaxed but efficient service' is OK, but it seems what you are describing is not typical so I'll have word with the team.

Kind regards,

Chris & Sarah

We had a great time staying at Ti Kaye. The staff was great, the beach was relaxing, and the view from the room was beautiful. The beach vendors were friendly and not pushy - I told them I would find them if I needed anything and they never asked me to buy anything again. The food is great - we usually shared an appetizer and each got an entree. We were never still hungry. Food is not inexpensive but we did feel like we were getting quality. I recommend going to town Friday night for the fish fest and doing the 5 course seafood dinner on Monday night. The ride isn't great going to and from the airport and there are a lot of steps on the property, but we had such a great experience that those things didn't affect our stay. We generally only go to a place once, but had such a nice time that we would consider vacationing here again.
