  4. 4. St. Lucia History  St. Lucia is a sovereign island country in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean.[4] Part of the Lesser Antilles, it is located north/northeast of the island of Saint Vincent, northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique. It covers a land area of 617 km2 (238.23 sq mi) and has a population of 174,000 (2010). Its capital is Castries.  One of the Windward Islands, Saint Lucia was named after Saint Lucy of Syracuse by the French, the island's first European settlers.. They signed a treaty with the native Carib Indians in 1660. Britain took control of the island from 1663 to 1667; in ensuing years, it was at war with France 14 times and rule of the island changed frequently (it was seven times each ruled by the French and British). In 1814, the British took definitive control of the island. Because it switched so often between British and French control, Saint Lucia was also known as the "Helen of the West Indies".  Representative government came about in 1924 (with universal suffrage from 1953). From 1958 to 1962, the island was a member of the Federation of the West Indies. On 22 February 1979, Saint Lucia became an independent state of the Commonwealth of Nations associated with the United Kingdom.[4] Saint Lucia has a legal system based on English common law.
  5. 5. St. Lucia       St. Lucia is one of the Windward Islands, located in the middle of the Eastern Caribbean chain. Its terrain is a combination of high mountains, forests, low-lying lands and beaches. Mountain ranges runs the length of the island and forests dominate the mountains, while jasmine, scarlet chenille and wild orchids provide splashes of color to the lush green slopes. The month of June is characterized by essentially constant daily high temperatures, with daily highs around 87°F throughout the month, exceeding 89°F or dropping below 85°F only one day in ten. Daily low temperatures are around 79°F, falling below 76°F or exceeding 81°F only one day in ten. The relative humidity typically ranges from 65% (mildly humid) to 92% (very humid) over the course of a typical June, rarely dropping below 61% (mildly humid) and reaching as high as 100% (very humid). Rain is common June, usually occurs in the afternoon. Short rain showers are common with sun coming out after. June is hurricane season in the Caribbean.
  6. 6. St. Lucia  Vacationers should be aware that there can be a great deal of variation in weather between the different regions of St. Lucia. If you are visiting one of the beaches around Castries or Rodney Bay, expect temperatures to be high but not unbearable due to the cool breeze off the water. Visitors exploring one of the trails through the rain forest in the center of the island need to be prepared for some very hot and humid weather without any relief from the winds. Adventurous travelers can cool off on a hike to one of the Piton mountains, the distinguishing landscape feature of St. Lucia. Temperatures will drop significantly as the altitude increases and travelers may even want to bring along a light jacket to stay comfortable in the cool weather.
  7. 7. St. Lucia  Soufrière  Soufrière is located on the southwestern coast of St. Lucia and was the former capital when under French possession. It is also the oldest town in St. Lucia. Unlike Castries, much of the original architecture still stands today, so if you want a taste of French colonial architecture, Soufrière is the place to be. The waterfront of this town is so picturesque it draws movie studios and tourists alike. Soufrière is an excellent destination for visitors to experience both the St. Lucian culture and the environment. Soufrière has everything, from beautiful beaches to towering mountains. For the adventurous traveler, it is the perfect destination for both relaxation and adventure. Just outside of Soufrière is the popular drive-in volcano which is thought to have once been a site for human sacrifice by the Arawak Indians. Visitors are allowed to drive very nearly into the volcano and then be guided around the area by a tour guide. Just south of the town of Soufrière along the bay, the most distinguishing feature of St. Lucia can be found, the Pitons. These two towering twin mountains are not only beautiful to look at, but they a popular hiking destination that draw people from around the world.

  39. 39. Sandals Grande St. Lucian  Examples of what a Sandals Butler can do for you:  There was a guest who requested to have breakfast on their balcony each morning. On the last day before their departure the butler located a ladder, climbed up to their balcony (on the third floor) and laid breakfast out. Then called the guest and asked them to open their balcony door. They were speechless when the saw the butler on the balcony with breakfast elegantly arranged for them.  A guest went sailing every day, they always brought Red Stripe out with them. Knowing that they would be out of beers soon the butler got the rescue boat and bought an additional cooler of beers for them while they were still sailing.  A guest had booked a candlelight dinner, however the weather did not permit them to dine on the beach. The guest was quite disappointed about this and wondered what they will do. The butler booked a spa treatment and they went to the spa. While they were at the spa the butler re-arranged their suite, elegantly arranged the table, got some bags and covered them with sand. The butler also had some glow in the dark stars and hung them from the ceiling, played a CD with ocean sounds and placed palm trees around the table. When the guest returned from the spa they could not believe that they were standing in their room. They had a wonderful evening dining in the privacy of their suite with the feeling they were right on the beach.

  41. 41.  Notes on Sandals:  Sandals Resorts are designed for couples. If you want to be social and meet         other couples there are many opportunities to do so, if you would like it to be just the two of you the resorts are large enough and have many hidden spots for couples. For example hammocks in the gardens, fire pits, quiet pools, beach loungers for two and more. The food is really good! Especially the brick oven pizza. I personally think having a butler is wonderful. My favorite part is having the butler save loungers by the pool so we don’t have to get up early to get a good location. You can use you butler as much or as little as you want. There are lots of activities at night. In St. Lucia you have exchange privileges between all three Sandals Resorts. For example if you want to stay at La Toc because the rooms have an awesome view you can go over the Grande to waterski. A shuttle runs every hour. Sandals Grande St. Lucia has more of a party atmosphere, more activities around the pool and late night fun. The property has the Caribbean Ocean on one side and the Atlantic on the other. Sandals Regency La Toc is located partly on a hill side and offers incredible views. It requires lots of walking and stairs, a jitney shuttle is offered to transport you. It has a nine hole golf course. There are many more room categories available at both Sandals including lower priced basic room categories. Any offers on the Sandals website are also available through Change Your Latitude Travel. We will price match if you find a lower price.
