WHY IT RATES: This resort is already perfect for couples looking to get away from it all and spend more time together. Adding in the complimentary activities enhances the experience even more. - Michael Isenbek, TravelPulse Senior Editor
To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Rendezvous has launched a new initiative, “Summer Tryst,” to encourage couples to reconnect and spend more quality time together.
Located on the northwest of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, Rendezvous is an idyllic, all-inclusive Caribbean hideaway. The couples-only luxury resort offers an escape from everyday life, so that couples can enjoy new memories together. Rendezvous is owned and operated by the Barnard family, who transformed their St. Lucian family home into a hotel 50 years ago.
The program will allow couples to explore undiscovered areas of St.Lucia and learn new skills together. In honor of the 50th anniversary, guests staying at the resort during the summer months, from now until September, will be able to take advantage of “Summer Tryst.” This includes a range of complimentary classes such as wine tasting, rum tasting, art classes, Yoga and Pilates classes, massage classes and cooking classes.
Rendezvous will also offer supplementary photography classes with a scenic tour, a rum distillery tour, a cocoa plantation tour and chocolate making experience, marine park dives in the Caribbean Sea, local chef ‘cook-off’ dinner and wine pairing, as well as private couples sessions in Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, massage and sailing.
Day trips will also be available to Sulphur Springs, which is the world’s only drive-in volcano on the southwest of the island near Soufriere, and The Pitons, two mountainous volcanoes which are also located on the southwest of St.Lucia. Gros Piton is 2,619 feet above sea level, and coupled with Petit Piton, it is the hallmark of St.Lucia’s Western coast.
Couples will be able to pre-book activities online, ahead of their stay. The package will also feature local events and festivals, such as Steel Pan Classes, a Panaroma Show Carnival Parade and Carnival Parade Viewing in July, as well as La Rose Flower Festival Parade in August.
Rendezvous is situated within a seven-acre tropical garden on a two-mile stretch of beach. The 100-bedroom boutique resort is the ideal place for a wedding, honeymoon, or to escape from everyday life. The resort undertook a $12.5 million renovation in November 2015, which upgraded the five-star hotel’s accommodation, resort facilities and food and beverage outlets.
Following the renovations, Rendezvous launched Malabar Beach Club, a barefoot restaurant, with views overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The Spa in the Water Garden features three treatment rooms, including a couples’ massage suite. It offers a variety of advanced natural skincare products with local and organic coconut and essential oils.
Rates at Rendezvous over summer start from $341 per person, per night, all-inclusive. For further information, visit: theromanticholiday.com.
Rendezvous is the sister resort to leading health and wellness resort, The BodyHoliday, which is also located in the northwest of the Caribbean island of St.Lucia.
