Hotels

There is a wide range of accommodations available in Vieux Fort and the south of St Lucia, ranging from cheap & cheerful beach huts at The Reef to several guest houses, private homes, apartments, beach front cottages, luxury villas and even a 3-star all-inclusive family resort. And if you don’t mind a 45-minute drive, you will also find several of the world’s best luxury boutique hotels in Soufriere on St Lucia’s iconic, west coast (a UNESCO World Heritage site), i.e.  Jade Mountain Resort, Anse Chastanet Resort, Sugar Beach Resort, Ladera Resort and Hotel Chocolat.

Closer by (just 10 minutes from Vieux Fort by car, taxi or local bus) is the fishing village of Laborie: a hub of village-based tourism. For a reasonable price, you can stay right in the heart of Laborie: in a home, apartment or cottage owned by ordinary St Lucians happy to welcome you into their homes and community. Laborie is one of the nicest, friendliest and safest villages in St Lucia. It has a long, soft Caribbean beach and lots of local little restaurants, rum shops and bars, a monthly fish fry and ‘street jump’ party frequented by locals and visitors alike, a lively arts and crafts culture.

You can find all of this and more on http://www.airbnb.com : just scroll around the south of St Lucia and a wide range of options will pop up: from real budget options to very high end villas. You can also try http://www.vrbo.com , http://www.expedia.com and http://www.booking.com

Below are our long-standing partners providing accommodation to wind- and kitesurfers, their friends and families, close to the kite beach and The Reef.

 

The Reef Beach Huts:

Located directly at the kite beach!

The Reef Beach Huts offer simple accommodation on the beach, right next to The Reef Kite & Surf. Built in hardwood, there are 4 rooms in total. Each room is 4 by 4 meters in size, and you can get one double bed (standard-size: 140 cm wide) or two single beds (can be separate or pushed together). Each room has its own private toilet and shower (hot and cold water), an electric fan, local furniture and a kettle to make hot drinks. The rooms are secure and set within a tropical courtyard on the roadside of The Reef Beach Cafe, under the seagrape and almond trees. The Reef Beach Cafe is directly on the beach. From bed to beach is just 50 steps but the rooms do not have a sea view. The windows are louvered for maximum ventilation, so at night you hear the waves, the wind in the trees and all the night sounds of the tropics (cicadas, tree frogs, etc). On weekends and holidays, there may be loud music from nearby beach parties, which can last into the wee hours. Breakfast is included and is served right on the beach: fresh fruits, juice, tea or coffee and home-made local bread with eggs your way, ham, bacon, sausages, cheese and local jam.

Chill out Caribbean style: put up a hammock and relax or get busy & wet on the water!
