Overlooking the golden sands of Labrelotte Bay, this delightful resort is sprinkled through sixty acres of tropical gardens, climbing the slopes of a luxuriant hillside. With whitewashed walls, red tiled roofs, and Greek style domes and window arches, the Mediterranean architectural design gives way to rustic Caribbean interiors, some cheerfully furnished in bright colours, others in earthy tones with a four poster bed, and all with a lovely living/dining area open to the cooling trade winds. In the main resort accommodation, all of the two and three and four bedroom villas have an attractive plunge pool. Lifting the level of luxury a little, the three, four and five bedroom Estate Villas each have a private swimming pool, and offer chef service for a truly leisurely holiday.
The facilities at Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort are perfectly designed for a relaxing holiday that is as sedate or active as you’d like it to be. There are six communal swimming pools, including a larger main pool, two children’s pools and three more secluded pools, to choose from depending on your mood. Sports facilities include two tennis courts, fitness room and complimentary non-motorised water sports including windsurfing, hobie-cat sailing, snorkelling and an introductory scuba lesson. Motorised water sports such as waterskiing are also available for a fee. Children are well catered for with the Jacquot Fun Club as well as daily activities for teenagers. The resort's new luxury spa offers a modern and serene haven with a Japanese soaker tub, steam room and relaxation lounge and an extensive spa menu, as well as a range of children’s spa treatments.
EATING AND DRINKING
With five restaurants in the resort, there are plenty of options catering to all tastes. Upper Deck is a steakhouse and seafood grill offering fine dining in a special environment, while Papa Don’s is an upscale Italian restaurant. Dragonfly serves up delicious breakfasts and a mixture of à la carte dining and themed food nights including a fish fry and Caribbean buffet. Both Embers and Jammers are situated on the beach for easy, casual lunches, with Jammers also serving up evening meals and night time entertainment. If you’re in need of a refreshing drink to cool down on the beach, or a cocktail for that holiday feel, 96 Degrees in the Shade is a tiki-style bar right on the beach.
The resort is in a stunning beachfront location, and so you may not feel the need to venture further than the crystal clear waters. If you do however, the town of Castries is just over a ten minute drive away where you can find shops and restaurants, while the golf course is even closer. Those looking for a challenge can hike Gros Piton, while those looking for more sedate activites can tour one on the island’s rum distilleries.
