Marigot Bay Resort & Marina by Capella in St Lucia is a contemporary and luxurious resort which is set in a beautiful bay on the west coast of the island. With lush tropical landscape framing the stunning design, the waterfront Marigot Bay Resort enjoys a unique location overlooking the sophisticated marina with its bars, restaurants and shops.
Castries, St Lucia's capital, is located just five miles away, making this resort is a fantastic base for exploring the island particularly if you arrive by boat. The resort also offers a great range of complimentary activities which focus on wellbeing or the local environment.
Having been completely redesigned in 2014, the resort is an eco-friendly boutique-style property which promises all the luxuries expected of a high-end resort including a personal assistant.
