A romantic, adults-only, hillside hotel with a cluster of 1-5 bedroom cottages: private pools, total peace and awe-inspiring sea and mountain views Set amid the lush foliage of a former lime and cocoa plantation and nestled at the base of the awe-inspiring Pitons, Stonefield Estate Resort is the island’s premiere luxury boutique resort. The estate, embraced by the boundaries of the UNESCO World Heritage Site sprawls over 26 acres, and commands views of Petit Piton, one of two volcanic cones that rise dramatically from the Caribbean Sea and define the St Lucian landscape. A collection of gingerbread houses in kindergarten colours, the 16 villas each have a pool in their private gardens.
Most also have romantic outdoor showers. Abundant greenery and garden gates offer complete privacy and the cottages will suit whether you’re travelling as a group of friends or a couple. If you want to feel the sand between your toes, the nearest (dark sand) beach is a 15-minute walk away, or there’s a free shuttle bus to the imported white sand at Jalousie Plantation Resort.
