Escape to Saint Lucia for the ultimate family getaway filled with incredible views, fresh cuisine, pristine beaches, endless relaxation and outdoor recreation. Relax in luxury resorts boasting panoramic views of the coastline, volcanic beaches and the famous Piton Mountains.


Viceroy Sugar Beach

Families of four stay in luxury St. Lucia resort Viceroy Sugar Beach’s Residences suite. The 1,455-square-foot space offers incredible accommodations including a master bedroom for parents and a second bedroom with two additional beds. Look out the private patio over the walled garden or check out the premiere views of the Pitons and white sands of Sugar Beach over the infinity pool right outside the villa.


Ladera St. Lucia

Now protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Ladera Resort was once part of the Rabot Estate and was one of Soufrière’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations. This unique resort resides on a volcano ridgeline 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea offering stunning views of the Pitons.


Relax in the spa and take a swim in the private plunge pool. Spend the day at the beach and get out on the water for sailing and snorkeling before settling in for world-class cuisine at Ladera’s on-site restaurant, Dasheene. Stay in any of the 37 incredible suites and dine on the private balcony or on the beach.

Jade Mountain

Choose from Jade Mountain’s two beaches and relax or head out for a hike, biking adventure and scuba lesson through Scuba St. Lucia’s full-service diving program. Explore the coral reefs and enjoy a sunset on the resort yacht with the whole family.


Rates vary depending on the season and the amenities included, but most resorts range $500–600 per night. Enjoy epic views of the natural beauty, diverse architecture and idyllic beaches. The relaxing pace of the Caribbean island allows for families to easily do their own thing at the resort, head out on various excursions together and meet up after for a family dinner and activity.
