The Caribbean is a fantastic choice if you're looking for an opulent all inclusive holiday, but St Lucia really stands out for the quality of its resorts and the level of luxury they can offer. Today I'm going to take a look at what makes St Lucia the top option for a high-end Caribbean getaway, as well as give you some information about a few of the island's best resorts, which I've bullet-proofed below.

St Lucia is renowned for being a top spot for honeymooning couples, the island is famed for its romantic atmosphere and stunning landscapes. Its popularity among couples has resulted in many high-end couples-only resorts springing up on St Lucia, where your every need will be taken care of and where you can really unwind and relax. But as you'll soon learn it's not only couples and adults that are well-caterd for here as there are some fabulous retreats for families too.
Where to stay
There are many fantastic resorts in St Lucia - the following are just a couple that I've singled out for their unique attributes.
The BodyHoliday resort is located at the northern tip of the island, with access to a secluded beach where you certainly won't have to worry about any crowds. Among the many advantages of staying here is the access to an excellent wellness centre where you can have a free daily treatment, and having the choice of four fantastic restaurants each day. As an adults-only resort, it's perfect for loved-up couples.
Coconut Bay Resort and Spa
Coconut Bay Resort and Spa is no less opulent, but it caters for families as well as couples. It too boasts an outstanding spa, wonderful restaurants and excellent water sports facilities. However, one thing that sets this resort apart is its water park, which is the only such attraction on the island - perfect for youngsters and big kids alike!
Smugglers Cove Resort and Spa All Inclusive
This beautiful village-style resort stands on a virtually deserted and perfectly secluded bay where the views will be something to write home about. Charming and tranquil, the all inclusive experience here includes a good range of water sports and activities galore for couples and families alike. First-class dining options will treat your palate to delectable international flavours while a plethora of water and land-bases sports await active guests in search of energetic pursuits.
St James' Club, Morgan Bay
Ideal for every guest of every age group, St James' Club on Morgan Bay is one truly outstanding resort catering to the needs of every discerning traveller. On one hand the resort offers a beautiful waterfront setting with seductive room views that provide the perfect setting for honeymoon couples, while on the other, families are also well looked after with a set of dedicated family suites and a superb children's club. At the St James in Morgan Bay no one's ever left out. Everyone's welcome to enjoy the fantastic all inclusive service and the long list of activities and amenities.
Rendezvous St. Lucia
Probably the most romantic of all, this small boutique property is the perfect hideaway for lovers seeking intimacy and seclusion. With a glorious stretch of private beach, the couples-only policy ensures romance is the only thing that fills the air (no noise from overly excited children or teens). Here you'll be able to truly unwind and enjoy each other's company as well as the varied array of entertainment options on offer. Wining and dining are also guaranteed to be excellent.
All inclusive: the way to go in St Lucia
The biggest benefit of going all inclusive is that everything will be paid for upfront, so you can just enjoy the facilities at your resort and soak up the sun without having to worry about money.
As well as a wonderfully equipped and tastefully furnished room, stunning surroundings and high-quality restaurants, you'll also be able to take advantage of water sports facilities (including activities like scuba diving and sailing) and the outstanding spas that most of these hotels boast.
