The Jalousie Plantation

It is easy to pinpoint Jalousie on the Saint Lucia map. It nestles in between the two Pitons, a World Heritage Site. Here, you get your fill of the mountains. They loom up close against the jacuzzi in your personal veranda, and soar at the two ends of the beach.

If proximity to nature is your thing, this resort, laden with flowering trees, nesting birds and scurrying mongoose will surely excite you.

The uplifting suites are decked in all white and offset with dark mahogany floors and pewter accessories.

Breakfast is served at the thatch-topped Beach House where families start their day with fruit-smoothies bedecked in local flora while the late night set nurse their hangovers.

A colonial dining room with high ceilings and sea views serves a multitude of cuisines lovingly prepared by the chef’s team throughout the day. Strikingly modern in comparison, the bar and dance room are recent renovations with an impressive collection of art.

Your butler will custom tailor your itinerary for the day, be it a guided walk in Tet Paul Botanical Garden, a hike further afield in the Edmond Forest Reserve or a challenging climb up Petit Piton. For those who are there to decompress, walk down to the beach where the pure white sand has been especially imported form coral islands and lie under the swaying palms. Snorkelling gear and jet-skis are on hand if the mood strikes. Make time for the exquisitely designed spa where all manner of treatments await in the stylish pods made of wood and thatch.
