The resort’s prime beachfront location on a secluded cove and full range of all-inclusive services make it a great addition to the chain’s resort portfolio, which includes the award winning Royalton, Memories, and Grand Lido brands.

Smuggler’s Cove Resort & Spa lies just north of the open-air markets and duty free shopping of Castries, St Lucia’s scenic Capital city. From the golden sands of the resort’s private cove, guests can enjoy a front row seat to some of the most awe-inspiring sunsets in the Caribbean.

The resort offers over 350 bungalow style rooms set on a hillside surrounded by lush gardens and expansive pools.

The resort’s 4 restaurants offer guests a variety of dining options from local West Indian delicacies to International classics, while the 5 bars on-site, including a swim up pool bar, beach bar, and the sports bar & pub, serve up national and international brands day and night.

Great for honeymooners and romantic getaways, the resort offers an Adults Only Premium Beachfront room located just steps away from the sand with a Japanese soaking tub and king sized bed. Couples can enjoy a romantic table for two over the water at the resort’s Creole Grill, indulge in massages at the luxurious onsite Namaste Spa, or even exchange sunset vows at the unique oceanfront gazebo atop a scenic cliff.

Families will appreciate the Premium One Bedroom Suite with its adjoining living room and spacious bathroom featuring a walk-in shower and extended vanity area, easily accommodating families of 5.

  1. SMH at slp in action. The sale of the resort had nothing to do with government. The owners were offered ridiculous cash for it and they took it period

    • It may well be a sign that this company is unhappy with the economic trends and has decided to disinvest. The continuing prognosis is very bleak. They wanted to salvage what they could, therefore, they decided to sell.

      Perhaps too, they are looking at a less socialist economy to invest in. So they are cutting their losses and are voting with their feet.

      Moreover, the location and the land's value may be worth very much more in the future. But that may well depend on whether or not Saint Lucians ever get to read the tea leaves correctly, to see how Kenny's characteristic mismanagement is taking this country further down his own self-created slippery slope.

      The die is cast. The economy is on life support.

      Blatant political dishonesty will take us nowhere in this dismal economic climate. Where ignorance is bliss ....

  2. Place is a dump. "golden sands" hahaha! who writes this crap

  3. Acquisition A B not to be constructed. big difference.

  4. Good Tidings i say.
    The SLP in Action 🙂

    • What did SLP do or how did it help? Be guided by the effects of the acquisition in the valley. Buckeye gave Saint Lucian workers a black eye. Therefore, don't keep fooling yourself. If it rains, SLP caused that too?

      You may well be counting your chickens before they are hatched too, regarding staffing levels. This is an acquisition.

      The report did not make mention of any expansion in services or of attractions. Maintenance of current staffing or improved occupancy levels are perhaps the best that can be hoped for at present. Let's all hope that this is indeed so.

      • Calm down Roland,...the Government cannot control what any business (whether local or foreign do) in terms of strategizing under new management. If you are business savvy and have some level of intelligence then you would obvious know that.

        Government may be able ensure that the rights of the workers / employees are not trampled upon and of course we have the unions to to facilitate that.

        So let's not pretend that the ridiculous assertion that you are making here has any merit of validation to it, Sir.
