The Caribbean's turquoise surf gently laps a white, sandy shore just steps from Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa, where the soothing sounds of rolling waves and the aroma of saltwater are carried along by a warm tropical breeze. Graceful columns flank the entrance to the resort's Georgian plantation-style main building, where a bright, vibrantly hued lobby leads to a half circle of sherbet-hued resort buildings nestled together on the beach.
There, a spacious, one-bedroom pool-view suite comes filled with cushy, bamboo-accented furnishings. A full kitchen allows home chefs to whip up their own Caribbean culinary creations, and a separate living-room area boasts a sleeper sofa to tuck in up to two kids 11 and younger.
At the onsite Trios Caribbean Fusion Restaurant, a Caribbean fusion four-course dinner for two with two welcome cocktails awaits to refuel exploration energy. The resort's enormous, lagoon-style pool shimmers enticingly, offering sun worshippers a sunken chaise-lounge area floating on an island in the center of the palm-ringed water. White-sand beaches are steps away from the resort, and three onsite bars, a fitness center, and spa services help vacationers to meet their required ration of relaxation.
St. Lucia: Lush Tropical Beauty and Bustling Nightlife
Situated near the alabaster sands of Saint Lucia's Reduit Beach, Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa features close proximity to activities on the island's shoreline. Tours and snorkeling excursions can be booked with the resort, and several dolphin-watching and sport-fishing private charters crisscross the aquamarine sea. Natural wonders, such as giant tourist-tickling ferns, flourish in the area's lush, tropical warmth, and short-distance day trips can take visitors to cascading waterfalls and through the huge, now-slumbering Sulphur Springs volcano.
While picturesque, St. Lucia also harbors a throbbing nightlife, with a rollicking casino and bustling, weekly street seafood fairs that come alive after sunset. The steady calypso beat of live music plays all night long at all-island street parties in the center of town.
