Sea Spa: Inside The Spa Village at Marigot Bay Resort, St Lucia
by Charlotte Hogarth-Jones
Where is The Spa Village at Marigot Bay Resort?
Sitting on St Lucia's western coast, chalet-style villas at this recently renovated Caribbean pied-à-terre look out over the crystal clear waters and pristine beaches of Marigot Bay. The vibe is low-key elegance and the resort’s spa, set within botanical gardens, hits the brief perfectly.
What's it Like?
Guests at Marigot Bay will soon understand why St Lucia is one of the best foodie destinations to visit by superyacht. Feast on authentic local fare – from breadfruit tacos with freshly caught mahi mahi, to seasonal mangoes, avocado and soursop, picked from trees nearby. If you ask nicely, the chef will even serve you his family’s legendary fried chicken as part of a bespoke treehouse dining experience, and you’ll soon become hooked on the area’s spiced rum too – whether supped in creamy coconut cocktails at the pool bar, or served straight over ice at the atmospheric Rum Cave.
Treatments at Marigot Bay Resort Spa Village
Try the New Moon experience, which includes a brown sugar and seaweed body scrub, made by therapists on site, which smells like warm molasses and leaves skin sublimely soft. Its aroma is so heavenly that you may be tempted not to wash it off, but the spa’s impressive multi-direction outdoor shower should convince you to return to reality. Leaving the resort, however, is a much harder sell…
Best by Boat
Moor your yacht right next to the spa in Marigot Bay Marina. It’s close enough to walk up the dock in your fluffy slippers.
