ADVERTORIAL • November 2019
Located on a stretch of palm-shaded, flour-soft sand on St Lucia’s south-east coast, Serenity at Coconut Bay is the island’s newest, most seductive couples-only stay. Here’s why you’ll fall head-over-heels for it
From the moment you arrive, you’ll be invited to spend the duration of your stay in uninterrupted privacy. Designed with loved-up couples in mind, each of the resort’s 36 glamorous villas comes with its own private outdoor terrace, enclosed within a screen of lush tropical vegetation. Whether cat-napping in the hammock, clinking cocktails at your own well-stocked wet bar, or soaking in the waterfall-fed plunge pool, you’ll be able to bask in the Caribbean sun in perfect seclusion.
Tell me more: Don’t want to leave your room? You don’t have to. Request to have your breakfast or dinner delivered to your own private ‘Meal Box’ at the villa’s entrance
Fancy a midnight snack? Breakfast picnic on the beach? A cocktail party brought to you? That’s what your Serenity butler is there for – and more. Available 24-hours a day throughout the duration of your stay, the resort’s team of skilled butlers are entirely at your service. From securing reservations at the gourmet Greathouse Restaurant, to whizzing you to the beach and back in one of the resort’s golf carts, there’s almost nothing they can’t do. Of course, if you don’t want to be disturbed, that’s all right, too.
Tell me more: Don’t forget to fill out your pre-arrival butler form, where you can select up to two bottles of liquor for your private wet bar – from single malt whiskies to cognacs.
Combining the elegance of a St Lucian mansion with contemporary, top-notch cooking, The Greathouse at Serenity is a restaurant for all occasions. Taking local, seasonal produce, the team excel in creating irresistible signature dishes and putting their own twist on reimagined classics, as well as catering specially for gluten-intolerant and meat-free diners. Choose to dine inside, beneath the hand-crafted chandeliers, or outside under the stars on the Greathouse patio overlooking the Serenity Pool.
Tell me more: As well as the Greathouse at Serenity, you’ll also be free to choose any of the eight restaurants at sister resort Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa – from the contemporary Caribbean-themed Calabash, to fine-dining La Luna.
The Caribbean is blessed with some of the clearest, warmest, most vibrant waters anywhere in the world, and St Lucia is no exception. Serenity makes the most of its location with a range of non-motorised water sports available for all guests, perfect for those who want to try their hand at snorkelling amongst the turtles, stand-up paddle boarding, sea-kayaking and even kite-surfing (Serenity has its own Surf Shack were guests can learn – at an additional charge – how to kitesurf with a seasoned pro). Or, if the sea feels just too far from your sun lounger, there’s always the oasis-like Serenity Pool or Paradise Beach Bar in which to cool off.
Tell me more: You’ll also have complimentary access to the five pools at Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa, including the Splash wing, with activities such as pool volleyball.
As well as the sorts of inclusives you might expect from a top-end resort, such as unlimited reservation-free gourmet dining, wine and premium spirits, Serenity offers so much more. In addition to a daily signature cocktail, accompanied by a mixology lesson so you can whip up your new favourite drink back home, you’ll also get complimentary private airport transfers, 24-hour room service and private poolside cabanas with complimentary bottle service. The list goes on!
Tell me more: Book seven nights or more, and you’ll get even more included, from an in-suite couple’s tranquillity massage to a private chauffeured island tour.
