I like being active, but there are certain times in life when all the body wishes for is complete relaxation, a beautiful location to “kick back” and put up the feet, and receive some nice pampering next to one’s better half.
I found this spot in St. Lucia, in the Windward Islands, and it was marvelous. It is a boutique hotel called Rendezvous and its slogan is; “Time is so precious, smart couples steal it.”
This location is steeped in history, it was an old plantation house owned by the Barnard family whom turned it into a lovely couples hotel. They upgraded the facilities and made it a beautiful spot, keeping a magnificent tree as a center-point that is older than every last one of us, and under which their guests are invited for some cocktails.

TOP 3 THINGS THAT I ENJOYED THE MOST DURING MY STAY AT RENDEZVOUS
♥ Beachfront cottage
The beachfront cottage made my stay even more romantic; you literally wake up and can hear the sound of the waves gently caressing the white sand beaches. Guests can take a quick dip in the ocean before starting the day. The service at this boutique hotel is impeccable and I felt pampered during the whole stay, from receiving champagne bottles every night as I was celebrating my birthday, to coming back from dinner to find the room full of candles, with soft classic music, and a romantic ambiance.
It is really important to have yummy food wherever I go to make the experience COMPLETE! And Rendezvous has very good food and wine! From barbecue lunches on the beach to breakfasts at the terrace restaurant, to more formal locations such as The Trysting Place where exquisite French cuisine is served, to the new addition Malabar Beach Club, this hotel has something that everyone will enjoy! To make this place even more awesome, it has its own Champagne Bar, where you can sample wines and champagnes while enjoying live music played by the pianist and socialize with other guests.
Sunsets have always been special to me. I find they give you the chance to reconnect with yourself, admire the colors that nature decided to show you that day, and allow you a moment to be the witness of nature´s well put on shows. During my stay I had the luck to see many of them! Most of the time these are my happiest memories, saying goodbye to another day well spent and hoping to be lucky enough to see a green flash!
