Two Iconic Honeymoon Experiences in St Lucia – Peak to Beach Package
The“Peak to Beach” twin-centre honeymoon package, offered jointly by Saint Lucia’s two iconic boutique hotels, Cap Maison and Ladera, allows honeymooners to enjoy the luxurious, yet distinctively different, tropical experiences offered in the north and south of St Lucia. From three nights in the lush rainforest at 1,100 feet above the Caribbean Sea, between the UNESCO World Heritage Piton Mountains, to three additional nights on a scenic oceanfront cliff at the northern most tip of the island– this special experience is now offered in one easy booking.
Couples can start with a stay at Ladera, near Soufriere, in a Luxury Suite at Paradise Ridge for three nights, where they can relax on the suite’s private terrace with plunge pool. With all suites featuring a totally open west-side ‘wall’, couples can enjoy breathtaking, unobstructed views of the Pitons. Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with a complimentary bottle of signature local rum. The experience includes full continental breakfast daily, three dinners at the resort’s award-winning Dasheene Restaurant (plus selected beverages) and a couple’s massage in the total privacy of Paradise Ridge.
After spending three days at Ladera, newlyweds are taken in style to boutique villa resort, Cap Maison, on a private yacht, and are shown all the stunning sights along the coastline as well as stopping to snorkel en route. Guests will stay in an OceanView Villa Suite with private roof terrace and pool, where they can enjoy a complimentary bottle of chilled champagne. All breakfasts, lunches and dinners (plus selected beverages) at either the elegant and internationally renowned Cliff at Cap restaurant or at the new beach bar and grill, The Naked Fisherman, are included, as well as a romantic couple’s massage at Spa Maison.
Whilst at Ladera in the south of the island, guests can choose to climb the Pitons, take in the sights and sounds of the tropical rainforest or adventure to the world’s only drive-in volcano and the nearby sulphur springs. Up in the north whilst staying at Cap Maison, couples can enjoy a wide choice of restaurants in Rodney Bay, a game of golf, explore nearby Pigeon Island National Park, the traditional Friday Night Jump Up in the local fishing village of Gros Islet, enjoy a cruise on the hotel’s own luxury yacht or simply relax on the white sand beaches.
The ‘Ultimate Peak to Beach’ package (as above) costs from £5,827 (two sharing)for a six night stay, including luxury airport transfers.
As an alternative, the ‘Classic Peak to Beach’ package costs from £3,668 (two sharing) for a six night stay, which includes airport transfers, three nights in a Rainbow Suite with private plunge pool at Ladera and three nights at Cap Maison in an Ocean View Villa Suite with private infinity pool, as well as all meals/selected beverages, and a one hour spa treatment per person at each resort.

Cap Maison is a family-operated boutique villa resort located on the northernmost tip of St. Lucia in Cap Estate, one of the most exclusive areas on the island. Guests are treated to dramatic cliff scenery with the tranquil waters of the Caribbean Sea on one side and the brisk Atlantic Ocean to the other. Designed in an elegant Spanish Caribbean style, Cap Maison’s 49 beautifully-appointed suites are spread over three acres of tropical landscaped grounds. Guests have access to a pretty, secluded sandy beach and enjoy a truly bespoke service throughout their stay.
Ladera was once part of Rabot Estate, one of Soufrière’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations, and it was not until 1982 that it was transformed into the unique resort it is today. Each of the 37 suites have an “open wall” – the west side of each unit has been left open, inviting one of the world’s most surreal perspectives right into the bedroom; yet the orientation of the buildings maintains complete privacy. Carefully constructed in the beautiful mountainous region of Soufriere, the Ladera Resort overlooks the shimmering Caribbean Sea. The Ladera is famous for its close proximity to the Pitons, a pair of dramatic coastal peaks that soar 2,000 feet up from the sea, sheltering magnificent rainforests where wild orchids, giant ferns and birds of paradise flourish.
