St Lucia isn't just about sun, sea and sand. (Although it handles them really well.) If you like a dance in the evening then head to the Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa in the nightlife and entertainment capital of the island: Rodney Bay Village.

Whether you're after clubs, bars or restaurants you'll be well catered for after a day of sunning yourself on what is generally agreed to be the island's best beach.

St Lucia also has a well-deserved reputation for being home to some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean (they’re known as ‘Looshans’), and it boasts a stellar carnival atmosphere that is worthy of any Atlantic isle.

If you're looking for a little adventure during your trip, Bay Gardens also offers a range of exciting water sport activities if you're fed up of drinking rum, er, I mean sunbathing. The island's natural beauty sells itself but when you do spend time in your room you'll find it spacious and modern.

Try and snag a beach view room though, you're going to enjoy it as much as you can while you're there.
