Akasha Saint Lucia luxury villa rental offers all its guest the opportunity to book a variety of activities prior to the arrival. This means guests have more time to relax and do what they came to do – vacation, and not spend time arranging things.
Over the next few months we will be blogging about each of the activities in more detail to help you decide which activities are right for you perfect St Lucia vacation.
In this blog we expand on one of our favourite – the motor cruise on the Caribbean Sea. This can be a half or full day cruise in a 30ft motor boat which can easily accommodate 8 people. You are transported from the luxury villa down to Rodney Marina which is about 8 minute drive. Captain Tom will greet you at the dock and introduce you to your crew. After a short safety demonstration by the crew you set sail and you can decide where you want to cruise to.
Our favourite route is to sail past Pigeon Island – a national park and head north. This will bring you up to Cariblue beach from where you will see Akasha St Lucia luxury villa rental up on the hill. Here you can snorkel for a while and then head back south. Cruise past Reduit beach towards the Ti Kayi resort where there are some of the best diving and snorkelling on the island. Along the way you will see some of the more well known resorts – where the crowds go and some of the other villas on the island of St Lucia. Here you start to appreciate the beauty of the landscape and realise why St Lucia is called Helen of the Caribbean.
Sail past Soufrier, and wonder at the sheer scale of the Pitons. These are a UNESCO Heritage World Site. They rise up from the sea like two gigantic icebergs covered in lush green foliage. Once you see them you appreciate why they are so special. This is what makes St Lucia so different from any other Caribbean island – this is paradise for honeymooners and families alike.
Here we often see dolphins playing around the boat – Captain Tom seems have a sixth sense of where they hang out. He also knows where the all those inaccessible beaches are and is happy to anchor there while you just chill or set up a barbeque. For lunch there are numerous places you can choose from 4 star hotel to a local restaurant. Some of the beaches will be especially attractive to honeymooners who want privacy and romance.
If you fancy, take in a mud bath in the Sulphur springs and a walk around the Botanical gardens then we dock in Soufrier and a taxi will take you up to the springs and the gardens.
There is so much to choose from – and just to make it even more complicated we will put together a ‘hamper’ including some local beer and champagne for your party to take on this glorious day.
Akasha is always looking for ways to make your vacation experience what it should be – memorable for all the right reasons. Akasha St Lucia’s premier villa rental will make this a trip to remember.
