Soufriere, St. Lucia was selected as one of the world’s best honeymoon destination by one of Canada’s top travel agencies, Flight Network.
St. Lucia was among 22 destinations named by the agency. Only one other Caribbean destination made the list: Cruz Bay, St. John in the Virgin Islands.
The other destinations are Maui, Hawaii; Matagalpa, Nicaragua; Colon Island, Panama; Rarotonga, Cook Islands; Noonu, Maldives; Bali, Indonesia; Lombok, Indonesia; Phuket, Thailand; Racha Yai, Thailand; Khao Lak, Thailand; Kep, Cambodia; Koslanda, Sri Lanka; Port Douglas, Australia; Montville, Australia; Oak Beach, Australia; Santorini, Greece; Crete, Greece; Aristi, Greece; Amalfi Coast, Italy; and Budapest, Hungary.
Commenting on St. Lucia, the travel agency states: “Soufriere is where the rainforest, Piton mountains and sea meet on the west coast of the famous island, St. Lucia. This area is relatively underdeveloped compared to the rest of the island, so it really will feel like a special, hidden place for you and your partner on your honeymoon.
“The name of the town means ‘sulfur’ in French. But, not because of the smell. Instead, this part of the island is home to hot springs and healing mineral baths which you can visit. Other notable spots in the area are the bike and hiking trails overlooking the sea, old sugar plantations and the remarkable Diamond Botanical Gardens.”
The agency singled out Stonefield Villa as the place to go.
“Each of the breathtaking Stonefield Villa’s are tucked on a hillside overlooking the Caribbean sea and the famous Piton mountain. Lush surroundings make your villa totally private, perfect for honeymooners. The villas also have their very own pools, spacious outdoor space, and hammocks for napping.
“Just about everywhere there is a view of the Caribbean sea and clear blue skies which open your heart and allow you to escape, relax and rejuvenate. This property is going to suck you in from the minute you step foot onto its lush land, so much so, you might find yourself coming back here years after your honeymoon.”
