Does the idea of spending day after day of your holiday lying down on the beach fill you with apathy?

If so, you should definitely be thinking about Bay Gardens Hotel in St Lucia.

In this blog, we’ll reveal why a little adventuring is good for the soul. Plus, we’ll introduce you to this awesome boutique hotel in St Lucia and outline why it’s such a good fit for itchy-footed holidaymakers.

Why Should You Move Off The Sunbed?

Look, we get it, kicking back every day is not for everyone. Lots of people prefer a holiday with a little more explorative potential. 

Now, we’re not saying you should be scaling a mountain or plumbing the ocean depths every day on your break – because rest is important. But, so is trying new things. 

In fact, according to a recent study, 61% of travellers said they’re more interested in outdoor activities and wellness experiences when they go away. 

So, if you’re one of those who prefer to sprinkle their sunning with some exploration, then we have the spot for you – and why wouldn’t you want to explore this place!

With just 87 rooms, a bar and restaurant, 2 pools, a spa, a fitness centre, and a host of water sports, it has the ability to rock your world – whether you’re a sunshine lounger or a new experience seeker. 

But, let’s take a deeper dive into the resort to showcase all the reasons we think it could be perfect for those in the latter of those two holidaymaker categories.

2. Make The Most of Perfect Positioning

Bay Gardens Hotel benefits from being in one of the top locations on the island. Just heading out on foot you could be enjoying all the best things to do in Rodney Bay in a matter of minutes. 

Head down to the bustling town and experience the beauty of Reduit Beach. But you don’t have to just lounge on the sand. Why not head under the waves with a snorkelling session?

Alternatively, we recommend wandering over to the shops, bars and restaurants at the Rodney Bay Marina – perfect for an evening meal in the town. 

Elswhere, if you want to venture slightly further afield, how about hiring a car and making the 7-minute journey into central Gros Islet?

3. Check Out Its Sisters 

One unique benefit to this resort is the fact that it’s actually a quadruple threat. A free shuttle bus service offers the opportunity to explore the other three Bay Gardens resorts

In each of the other hotels, you’ll find that beautiful authentic St Lucian vibe. But you’ll also find a host of additional amenities available to you. 

So, now you’ve gone from 1 bar and restaurant to 7 of each. Not to mention all the incredible eateries in Rodney Bay.  

  • Bay Gardens Resot & Spa
  • Bay Gardens Inn

4. If You’re Going to Relax, Then Do It In Style 

While we’re on the subject of those sister properties, we should probably outline that one of them houses Le Mer Spa. This is the place where you can redeem your 3 free treatments. 

You’ll find this relaxation station in Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa. Grab the free resort shuttle and do all the treatments in one day of pampering. Or spread out your luxuriation over the length of your stay.

If you’re not much of a lounger, then chances are you love getting stuck in to some new activities. Well, how about a host of watery fun?

But, we’re not just talking the conventional kayaking and snorkelling – although you can do that if you like. 

No, we’re talking about the Caribbean’s first open-water inflatable sports park – Splash Island. Set out in the Caribbean Sea, just off the shore of the Bay Gardens Beach hotel, this blow up behemouth consists of a trampoline, climbing wall, monkey bars, a swing, a slide, hurdles and so much more.
