The Marigot Bay Resort and Marina is an ultra-luxe, 124-room hotel nestled in a lush hillside overlooking St. Lucia’s secluded Marigot Bay, a renowned Caribbean destination for mega yachts from around the world.
Having undergone an extensive redesign and re-launch in late 2014, this family-friendly resort features luxurious amenities, exquisite style, and warm, personalized service. Families will appreciate the spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites complete with full kitchens, living and dining areas, laundry service, and expansive balconies. All-inclusive or breakfast-only rates are available, and kids’ menu choices can be found at each of the resort’s three on-site restaurants.
Special touches abound including complimentary local treats served throughout the day at the hotel’s two infinity pools (one pool is specially designated for families). While the resort has no direct beach access, a ferry transports guests to a nearby beach six days a week.
Children ages 4 to 12 may attend Zando’s Kids Program, introduced in 2017. Here, they’ll enjoy non-alcoholic mixology classes, nature walks, instrument making and more! Families can also enhance their stays with an authentic St. Lucian experience such as a rainforest hike, sailing lesson, or safari jeep tour — all arranged by a personal assistant, whose dedicated service is available before and during the stay to create a memorable travel experience.

Everything was superb. I stayed here last weekend for my birthday/mommy-daughter time and I was blown away. From beginning to end we were well taken care of. Everyone was so kind and accommodating. The location is so beautiful, the hotel, grounds and gardens made me feel like I was in an oasis. Everything was so picturesque. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We ate at all of the restaurants on site and we enjoyed every meal. It was truly an enjoyable and memorable birthday. I left on Sunday feeling a bit sad to leave, but refreshed and relaxed. Thank you to the amazing staff for the lovely weekend! Yasmin, Rochelle, the guy at the front desk, the lovely lady at the library who helped us with the tour, Carleen, Emma, everyone, thank you.
We look forward to our next trip! My mom and I are already planning our next vacation...hopefully, it will be a longer one!

I made a last-minute switch from another hotel to Marigot Bay Resort, and I’m so glad that I did. From the moment you arrive, you realize that this is far better than an average resort. The staff is warm and welcoming and I was surprised at various times during the trip they remembered my name when passing me by and while being seated for breakfast. The resort is up-to-date, modern and pleasing to the eye. The landscaping is meticulous and flowing. The layout of the place invites you to walk around and explore the different areas.
A special thanks to Sara and Chris in the Personal Assistant office, they were great and answered all our questions and provided valuable advice from a locals perspective. Also thanks to Jay who led complementary yoga and meditation sessions, it gave me a new appreciation for these disciplines.
We chose the option with breakfast included and it was delicious with many options..We wanted to explore much of St. Lucia and the location of Marigot Bay being between Soufriere and Pigeon Island made it an ideal launching spot.
I strongly recommend this place to anyone who wants an enjoyable stay in the beautiful country of St. Lucia
