Where is the Sandals Grande St. Lucian?

Perfectly placed on it’s very own peninsula on the Island’s northwest coast, the Sandals Grande St. Lucian resort is about six miles from St. Lucia’s capital city, Castries. The mile-long peninsula is between Rodney Bay and the historic Pigeon Island National Park.

The resort itself is huge, with five swimming pools (one including a swim-up bar), four whirlpools and a lengthy white sandy beach. Lined with palm trees and saturated with comfy deck chairs, the narrow but long beach was the showstopper of the Sandals Grande Saint Lucian. With crystal clear water and unobstructed views of the vast Caribbean Sea, the resort’s beach is revered as the most beautiful on the island, with the calmest waters.

What is the food like?

With an array of fine dining restaurants, there are so many food options at the Sandals Grande St. Lucian resort. Whatever you’re craving, there is no shortage of choice: fresh Caribbean seafood, traditional Italian, Thai, Sushi, French Cuisine, and even a pub. As a celiac and someone with numerous food allergies, I had no problem eating at every restaurant I tried. They really make sure that everyone, even those with specific dietary needs, are taken care of.

We did several excursions with Island Routes Tours which were so amazing! My favourite excursion was the Soufriere Adventure Cruise ! It was a catamaran cruise down the coast to the famous Piton Mountains of St. Lucia. The entire time was such a blast.

    Me and my husband stayed at a Sandals resort in Jamaica for our honeymoon and I was just not impressed with the food at all. I’m wondering if it was just that location or what? We spent so much on that trip and I loved the location itself just not the food.

  8. I stayed at Sandals in Jamaica a very long time ago, I remember it being wonderfully fun. It looks like you really enjoyed this one. Did you get to swim in that watering hole under the waterfall in the final image?

    What a beautiful place <3 I've been wanting to go on a vacation like this place! But one thing that I always avoid is the sea, since I can't swim I can only stay on the beach side lol
