A Fodor's 100-listed beachfront resort in beautiful St Lucia, with non-motorized water sports and more

Those 18th-century Caribbean pirates weren’t all bad if they knew to fall in love with Rodney Bay. Maybe they didn’t know that it would become a thriving cultural destination, with restaurants, shops, a mall and even a casino, or that St. Lucia would collect a slew of honors, like inclusion on Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Ten Caribbean islands list or three consecutive World Travel awards. What they did realize – and what, along with the dining and shopping scene, visitors still adore – is that it’s a highly picturesque inlet, fringed with palms and framed by mountains, and a perfect entry point to the larger island.

Located on St Lucia's palm-fringed Reduit Beach, Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa is the perfect destination for a four-star stay here. With the beach right on its doorstep, the 2012 Fodor's 100 pick and current TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Hall of Famer will have you snorkeling and swimming in the crystal-clear waters at the drop of a coconut. Meanwhile, back on dry land, you'll find the resort built in traditional Franco-Caribbean style, including a fusion restaurant, a lagoon-style pool with a whirlpool island, a spa that offers beachside massages and spacious verandas. There's even the Caribbean's first open-sports water park, right on the sea, so you can conquer it yourself.

We like

Escape to the sumptuous sands of the Caribbean. At the hotel itself, you can hit up Splash Island, the Caribbean's only open-sports water park. Here on St. Lucia, you can marvel over the island's unique silhouette, created by the two volcanic spires of The Pitons, marvel at the Diamond Waterfall in the island's oldest botanical gardens and laze your days away on the soft sands that line the coast. Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa is well placed in St. Lucia's Rodney Bay, a popular area for sun-seekers and those in search of that laid-back Caribbean vibe. You'll find Reduit Beach just outside your door, and Rodney Bay Village itself surrounds the hotel, with its restaurants, bars and shops.
