St Lucia may, indeed, be the most popular island in reality TV. It was first chosen by ABC as the backdrop of the final two episodes of The Bachelor in 2010, when Jake Pavelka remarked, “There is no better place to fall in love than St. Lucia.”
The final two episodes of 2014’s The Bachelor were also filmed on this lush, tropical isle, showcasing St. Lucia’s Pitons and natural beauty along with Juan Pablo Galavis, 2014’s Bachelor, and his three (now two) final “will you accept this rose?” choices.
The first episode filmed on St. Lucia aired on Monday, February 24th, ended with another of his bachelorettes choosing to leave the show after the always anticipated overnight dates in the Fantasy suite.
On Monday, March 10, 2014, the dramatic finale episode will air and viewers will find out if he will end up walking away from his final two bachelorettes, or offer the final rose and a proposal to one of them.
Whatever the outcome of this season of The Bachelor, the island of St. Lucia will surely benefit from its starring role, attracting new travelers interested in booking a romantic getaway to one of the most beautiful destinations in the southern Caribbean.
With all of the special packages being offered by St. Lucia resorts and hotels, this may be the best time to plan a trip here during 2014.
The Landings St. Lucia, to be featured in the final episode of this year’s The Bachelor is offering the "Red Rose Celebration" package.
