Spread across 85 lush acres on Saint Lucia’s southern coast, not far from the airport, the popular all-inclusive beachfront Coconut Bay Resort & Spa has rated among the best hotels in the Caribbean in TripAdvisor's Traveller's Choice Awards.
This utopia for kids and grown-ups alike is cleverly split into adult-only and family resorts. Come as a family and spoil the kids with fabulous entertainment, the chance to discover the island’s interior and wildlife on organised excursions, and visits to Mamiku Botanical Gardens 20 kilometres away.
The resort wows everyone with its facilities, which include the island’s largest waterpark, a paintball zone and the exceptional Kidz Club, with a splash pool, seasonal turtle-watching outings, parades, activities, family nights and bonfire parties. So you can get precious bonding time together as well as the chance to go off and do your own thing – and perhaps learn new sports while you're at it.
There are also five pools, tennis and basketball, and plenty of watersports (kayaking, sailing, kitesurfing). When it comes to dining and relaxing, there are four restaurants with themed dinners, six bars including a poolside and swim-up bar, nightly concerts and an oceanfront spa.
The family resort has colourful rooms conveniently located near the Kidz Club and overlooking the waterpark, with views of either the sea or the lovely gardens.
