Editor’s Review of Windjammer Landing

Guests are greeted with cool towels and fruit punch and introduced to their "personal ambassador" upon arrival at the Windjammer Landing. The personal ambassador is available to schedule restaurant reservations, spa appointments or provide island tour information, more towels or anything else.

Kids receive special welcomes too. A counselor from the Jacquot Fun Club greets children ages 4 to 12 at check-in, giving each one an activities/coloring book containing information about the children's club, a bag of Gummy Bears and a club T-shirt. "We want the children to know about the program and to feel comfortable with us," says Gale Charles, the children's club supervisor.

Located about five miles or 15 minutes from
... more Castries, Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort occupies 60-acres on St. Lucia's northwest coast. A sandy beach stretches for 1,000-feet along the calm waters of Labrelotte Bay. From the shore, the resort sweeps up a lushly landscaped hillside. Designed by Barbadian architect Ian Morrison to look like a Mediterranean village, Windjammer's units display such typical Moorish elements as stucco facades, archways, domes and red-tiled roofs. All of Windjammer's 161-units are either suites or villas. That means the resort's accommodations provide ample space plus the comforts of home.

Towering palm trees as well as red, purple and yellow bougainvillea, hibiscus and other flowers line the roadways leading to the units. The island has plenty of green on its hillsides, rainforest and valleys where locals farm banana and cocoa trees. less

We went to the Windjammer Landing in the summer of 2008 to get married there. It was the best decision we could have made! There were 25 people in our party, ranging from single couples, families with children, and also older ...

Hibiscus Suites
The Hibiscus Suites work well for families, especially if you book one of the twelve 1,570-square-foot two-bedroom units. These are situated in three or four story buildings with no elevators. To avoid hauling tots and strollers up and down the stairs, parents with kids should request ground level units.

Each two-bedroom suite comes with a full kitchen opening to a living area with a pull-out couch and flat-screen TV, plus a master bedroom with another TV and bath. The second large bedroom has another TV and bath. The contemporary decor of white walls, ceiling fans and beige rattan furnishings is enlivened by blue batik pillows, conch shells and other island touches.

Each Hibiscus Suite has a 300-square-foot terrace (counted in the unit's total footage) that comes with a two-person hot tub, as well as a table seating six. Plan on outdoor meals or morning coffee in your own bubbling tub. A kiddie pool and a regular pool front the units, which are within walking distance of the beach. Also, only the Hibiscus Suites have in-room washers and dryers.

The resort offers one- to four-bedroom villas ranging from 1,200-square-feet for a one-bedroom to 2,200 to 3,600-square feet for a four bedroom unit. Most come with their own private plunge pools. In addition, Windjammer offers even larger three and four-bedroom Estate Villas, approximately 3,600-4,200 square feet. These villas (Prince Charles and Princess Diana are said to have stayed in one) come with their own full-size pools as well as spectacular hilltop views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea.

Each 3,600-square-foot Estate Villa gives families plenty of room to hang-out together, whether on outdoor decks or in the oversized living room. Instead of razzle dazzle furnishings, the units come with full size pools with panoramic views of the Caribbean and St. Lucia's lush hills. The comfortable decor features beige rattan couches, white walls and serviceable furnishings. A dedicated chef is included with the Estate Villas. Families with preschoolers should realize that the infinity edge pools and, possibly other outdoor areas, do not have railings. Reaching the hilltop villas can be difficult and shuttle vans do transport guests who request one.

No matter where you stay, a maximum of two children under 12 stay free per unit with parents. Cribs, high chairs and bed rails are available at no charge. Rollaway beds require an additional nightly fee.
