The Landings Resort & Spa

St Lucia, Caribbean

The hotel

The Landings’ signature cocktail sums up this deliciously decadent hotel, ‘Sweet Euphoria’. An all-villa resort, it delivers unforgettable moments like kicking off your shoes and sinking your feet into the sand at Callaloo Beach Bar & Grill — just one of its many dining options — or soaking up views of its private marina or Rodney Bay as you stretch out on your suite’s terrace. You can spend days letting the world drift by as you relax in its four pools, two hot tubs, sweeping sandy beach, and luxury spa and fitness club, or you can ramp up the energy levels with the range of water sports on offer. Little guests have not been forgotten either — they can create memories of picnic trips to Pigeon Island, sand sculpting, and fishing by the bay at their kids’ club or splash around in the kid's pool. Just remember, Rodney Bay Village is only 10 minutes’ drive away if you can bear to tear yourself from The Landings’ luxury.

The Landings is located in the far north of St Lucia. If you arrive at UVF (the international airport) this requires a 1.5-hour transfer. Be prepared for this, because the roads are narrow and twisty. General driving standards seem to be quite poor, so it is an "interesting" experience at times. When you do arrive at The Landings, the first impression is good, The Landings resort itself is a gated resort, designed in a highly curated and masterplanned way. The buildings are attractive, and the manicured landscape is well maintained. The view from the beach is lovely. However, it soon becomes clear as you explore, that everything in the resort is quite small in scale (beach, restaurants etc). It can get quite busy and crowded at times which detracts for the relaxation factor. We stayed over Christmas and New Year. The resort itself was exceptionally clean, and covid protocols excellent. When we visited, the kids needed testing on arrival, but the results were turned around in under 24 hours. We were allowed free rein in the resort, but could not leave until they had the all-clear result back. We had two suites. 701 was great, with a pleasant view over the marina. It had a private terrace and plunge pool, large bedroom, 1.5 baths, kitchen and utility. Room 501 on the other hand was rubbish. It was small and smelt of damp and mildew. The overgrown vegetation in the back yard also made it very dark. We had asked for rooms adjacent, but the two suites were a couple of minutes walk apart. The kids drew a short straw, as their room did not do justice to the luxury billing or price tag. What really lets The Landings down is the food offer. I agree with other recent reviews that the food is poor, and certainly not of a five star standard. Whilst the "Callaloo" informal cafe bar on the sandy beach has a good atmosphere, view and attentive staff and is good for lunch as the kids enjoyed watersports, after a few days the rather limited menu became a bit repetitive. The rest of the food offer at The Landings was poor. Avoid the fine dining "The Palms" . This suffers from patchy and rushed service, and served quite unremarkable and badly cooked food. It was very expensive for what it was, and certainly is not the fine dining venue it claims and by overselling itself, disappoints from the outset. The "Beach Club" above the beach, and adjacent to the marina entrance, is where breakfast is served and early dinner. Based around a small buffet set-up, it is where most families eat. However, it gets very crowded, and serves overcooked, bland and unremarkable food that is tasteless and stewed. The fact that the buffet is not refreshed as much as needed, was also an issue if you happened to arrive after the peak rush. Overall, would we recommend a stay at The Landings for your St Lucia trip? In short, no. In many ways, The Landings has the basic ingredients in place to be great. However, it is not currently operating at the standard that a 5-star resort should. The food offer is disappointing and seems to operate on the eat to survive, not to enjoy concept. One of our rooms (501) was really poor. The hotels failure to sort their accomodation mistake grated, and left a poor lasting impression which overshadowed our stay. Read less

We booked a last-minute week away at The Landings and stayed in a 2-bed beachfront apartment. The accommodation was very spacious, well-equipped and spotless, with everything we needed and more. Gorgeous view of the beach with stunning sunsets. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Children were PCR tested on arrival and free to leave the resort when their negative tests were back the next day. lots of Covid measures in place, which was reassuring. Resort was not at all crowded, mixture of couples and families. Very pleasant, laid back atmosphere but not somewhere to go if you are looking for an exciting nightlife! We were on an all-inclusive package, which was good, very few things excluded. Only criticism (as others have mentioned) was having only two restaurant choices for evening dining, which became repetitive after a while. The food was pleasant, without being outstanding. Lunches at Callaloo were really good. Watersports were excellent, spa, gym and kids club all good with really friendly staff. Would highly recommend, but consider half board and explore local restaurants for variety. Read less

We stayed just over two weeks in a two bedroom Marina view villa suite with plunge pool. The room was absolutely magnificent with high grade fittings all through. Our suite consisted of two bedrooms (one with double bed the other with two singles), two bathrooms (the master bedroom one had a sunken bath and separate walk in shower, double sinks and toilet whereas the other had shower, single sink and toilet). There was an additional toilet off the hall and a large sitting area, dining area and fully equipped kitchen (with high grade Miele appliances). Perhaps the jewel was the ground level secluded large sun terrace with large jacuzzi - such a lovely feature we had no need to use any of the four swimming pools the complex has. From arrival to departure staff were very friendly and always went out of there way to ensure you were having a good time. There are so many but Neil, Tamar and Che all come to mind as going beyond the call of normal duty. Perhaps the only thing that lets it down slightly is the food. We were staying on a bed and breakfast basis only rather than many guests that were all inclusive. There is an A La Carte restaurant (Palms) which we tried once and although the food was quite nice we found the prices extremely expensive for the quality level. The rest of the time we tried the different selection of buffets available each night at the Beach Club restaurant. These are also quite expensive but usually a good choice is available. Sometimes selections were much reduced from the start and not always replenished which was not ideal for us as later diners. We are in the wine industry and found the cost of wine rather pricey so the local beer was a good alternative. There is limited entertainment at the Beach Club restaurant in the evening, this is partly restricted by curfew times. Some of it was mediocre but the small steel band was excellent! The procedures in place to deal with COVID are excellent, all staff wear masks at all times and guests are required to wear masks in public areas indoors. There are a large number of excursions by boat which we did not avail ourselves of and the overall setting is ideal for those who want to get away from it all as well as those with young families. It was a pleasure to come here and we would certainly recommend and return. Read less
