Bay Gardens Inn

St Lucia, Caribbean

The hotel

Slipping into island life’s never been so easy — Bay Gardens Inn delivers the authentic St Lucia experience you can only find at a small inn, but all the fun and features of a big resort hotel. That’s because it’s three hotels in one. You’ll stay at the intimate 33 room inn in Rodney Bay Village, but get complimentary travel to its two ‘big sister’ hotels, including one on Reduit Beach. So you can spend days enjoying free water sports, sunbathing, and taking on the challenge of Splash Island Water Park — an open water adventure course just off shore. You can also use their other facilities, from the kids’ club to the spa. The inn’s got surprises up its own short summer sleeves too, including a sun-trap of a pool, complimentary WiFi, and the tavern treats of its Ti Ponche Bar.

The experience was a great one as usual. The Bay Gardens chain of hotels are all great and I will continue to stay there whenever I visit St Lucia. My only issue was the breakfast options on day three of my stay.

My family and I stayed at another place and couldn't stand it, so we decided to move to Bay Gardens Inn. What a big difference. All I can say is WOW. Friendly staff, a big breakfast and wonderful Caribbean vibes. Highly recommend to anyone visiting St. Lucia.
