Spring is here...and once again the pressure is on to begin planning the perfect summer vacation. If fighting crowds in the typical tourist traps and jockeying for position on a crowded beach sounds less than appealing, try something different and plan a getaway to St. Lucia’s gorgeous Stonefield Estate Resort.
This luxurious Caribbean hideaway offers the perfect blend of relaxation, pampering and gorgeous scenery, all with a dash of unique and exciting activities. Each luxury villa has its own private pool and garden or ocean view, and is surrounded by the natural beauty of the awe-inspiring Piton Mountains.
Stonefield Estate Resort has something for everyone, whether your perfect vacation involves a book on a beach or a full-day’s itinerary of outings. Begin with a delicious al-fresco breakfast overlooking the mountains and the ocean, then plan a day at the spa or enjoy a snorkeling excursion to the coral gardens. Take advantage of some of the amazing activities offered in and around the nearby town of Soufriere, including climbing the Pitons, visiting the Diamond Botanical Gardens and spending a day at the sulphur springs and mineral and mud baths. Experience gourmet dining that engages all five senses at the resort’s Mango Tree Restaurant, overlooking Petit Piton.
