Rendezvous, St. Lucia
Rendezvous has launched a new Adventure Programme to provide couples with even more activities and experiences to enjoy together. Building upon the boutique resort’s established offering of outdoor pursuits and activities, the new Adventure Programme will allow more opportunities for couples to reconnect through new memories and shared experiences. From diving in St.Lucia’s crystal clear waters to hiking up the iconic Pitons and chocolate making to cookery classes, guests can enjoy the natural beauty of St. Lucia through a variety of intimate, couples-focused outdoor pursuits and activities, whilst bonding with their loved one. Located on the North West of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, Rendezvous is an idyllic, all-inclusive Caribbean hideaway. The couples-only luxury resort offers an escape from everyday life, so that couples can create new memories together. Guests also have the choice of engaging in their favourite pursuits and activities privately as a couple, or more socially with other couples (groups are limited to a maximum of three couples).
The trend for transformational travel is growing rapidly as busy couples long for getaways and escapes that place an emphasis on self-reflection and personal development through authentic cultural experiences and meaningful encounters with nature.
St. Lucia is a lush tropical paradise and the programme will allow guests to discover the magic of the island’s underwater world and its exotic garden of colours, textures, flora and fauna. Guests can explore the deep-sea wonders in some of the most beautiful and challenging dives in the Caribbean. From diving in the ‘Petit Trou’ where an array of tropical fish, including moray eels and scorpion fish, awaits, to the ‘Turtle Reef’, located on the West coast of the island, consisting of spectacular pillar coral, barrel sponges and turtles.
For those with a sweet tooth, chocolate making on the island allows couples to experience St. Lucia like true locals. From a tour of the plantation to bean tasting, de-shelling and grinding, guests will learn first-hand how cocoa is harvested and produced from start to finish. The session ends with a lesson on chocolate making and guests will also have the unique opportunity to make their very own chocolate bar onsite.
Guests can also discover the spirit of St. Lucia with the Rendezvous Rhythm of Rum Tour, where they will be whisked away on a stunning scenic drive to the rum distillery in the town of Roseaum, located on the western side of the island. Couples will enjoy a guided factory tour immersing them in the intricacies of rum making before being invited to sample some of the distillery’s most exotic blends of rums and liqueurs. Returning to the resort is also an experience, with a scenic sail along the magnificent tropical coastline.
Fitness-focused couples will relish the opportunity to hike up St. Lucia’s most iconic landmark and World Heritage Site, The Pitons. Gros and Petit Piton stand side by side on the island’s South West coast, with the hike offering a challenging climb, as well as breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea from the summit. Rendezvous’ Adventure initiative also features a wide selection of tennis lessons, sailing, archery, golf and cookery classes.
Rendezvous is situated within a seven-acre tropical garden on a two-mile stretch of beach. The 100 bedroom boutique resort is the ideal place for a wedding, honeymoon, or to escape from everyday life. The luxury resort features three restaurants and three bars, including Malabar Beach Club, a barefoot restaurant, with views overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The Spa in the Water Garden features three treatment rooms including a couples’ massage suite. It offers a variety of advanced natural skincare products with local and organic coconut and essential oils.
