I’m delighted to bring you this sponsored post about one of my favourite boutique hotels on Saint Lucia. As always, our aim at Island Effect is to be an excellent, trusty guide for you, so all opinions are our own!
Nestled in the shade of elegant coconut palms, with crystal blue waves lapping almost at your feet…Villa Beach Cottages is a surprise oasis just north of Castries, in Choc Bay, Saint Lucia.
As soon as you enter the semi-circular driveway of the Villa Beach Cottages, you feel relaxed. The lush gardens of deep, cool greens and spectacular flowers, frame the pristine cluster of colonial-style villa suites.
This boutique property is an intimate and seductive island retreat and the luxurious fully self-contained villa suites offer stunning panoramic west-facing views. Sunsets and champagne anyone?
Though secluded, convenient dining, shopping and entertainment areas are all close by, with Gablewoods Mall just a couple minutes walk, and the main hub of Rodney Bay only 10-15 minute’s drive.
Experience Soufriere, Pitons and Chocolate
There’s a superb bonus option offered by the Villa Beach Cottages: If you would like to experience more of the island Villa Beach Cottages offers guests to split a vacation between the Cottages and their sister property, the historic La Dauphine Estate.
This spectacular plantation inn is set in luxuriant hills near the island’s famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Pitons, close to the historic and picturesque town of Soufriere, the Sulphur Springs and many other instagrammable sites and secluded delights!
And if you are into chocolate, hey, even if you aren’t, we think you should give this a try: La Dauphine Estate produces their own gourmet chocolate on the estate and you can learn how it’s made!

How to get there
Villa Beach Cottages is right off the main Castries-Gros Islet Highway. Coming from either of the airports, you pass two roundabouts, the first at the end of the Vigie Airport. Not long after the second roundabout, you will pass the small Gablewoods Mall shopping centre and then Sandals Halcyon entrance on the right. Slow down, the Villa Beach entrance is just round the next bend on the left.
La Dauphine is located just off the main road between Choiseul and Soufriere. If you are coming from Vieux Fort / Hewanorra Airport, you
