Sandals Halcyon

Best Sandals Resort In St Lucia

Located in between Sandals Grande St. Lucian and Sandals Regency La Toc is the boutique Sandals Halcyon resort.   Exactly 15 minutes from either of it’s sister properties, Sandals Halcyon is the perfect resort for those wanting a great value experience at Sandals. This is the smallest of the 3 resorts, but makes up for size with exceptional service and guest attention.  Accommodations here are in low rise, Caribbean inspired buildings. Butler walk-out rooms offer unparalleled access to the beach and some of the best priced butler rooms on island.  The newest butler suites at Sandals Halcyon even offer private pool sanctuaries and a relaxed luxury that you won’t want to leave! 

Due to where this resort lies on the Caribbean Sea the water can get rough at times and water sports may be red flagged.   Not to worry though, you’ll just transfer on over to Sandals Grande St. Lucian and enjoy protected, calm Rodney Bay those days.    Guests of Sandals Grande and La Toc will still want to venture over to Halcyon for really great Italian food at Mario’s or authentic Creole cooking with over-the-water dining at Kelly’s Dockside.

Sandals Regency La Toc

Best Sandals Resort In St Lucia

Sandals Regency La Toc offers a lush retreat with a lively environment.   Pool lovers will enjoy St. Lucia’s largest pool at Sandals Regency La Toc.   The resort offers a 9 hole course with complimentary green fees for guests, perfect for golf lovers.   Caddies are mandatory, but for a nominal fee and gratuity, it is like playing with your own golf pro.   Guests staying at the other Sandals Resorts in St Lucia may also enjoy the golf amenities at Regency La Toc.  Dining at Regency La Toc is excellent and we encourage everyone to try the fantastic French cuisine at La Toc restaurant, or the amazing cliffside views and dinner show at Kimonos Teppanyaki restaurant.

Most room categories at this resort have French balconies (French doors that open up, but no balcony extends out).  Travelers who prefer outdoor space of their own will want to book a room listed as having a balcony or patio.   The rooms perched on the Sunset Bluff are like an exclusive resort within a resort.  This section offers two story butler suites, butler suites with plunge pools and the exclusive Millionaire Suites, a favorite accommodation.   Millionaire Suites offer panoramic, unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea from your bed, your infinity pool,  and your living area.  These accommodations are limited and book well in advance so book early.   The Sunset Bluff area has it’s own pool, a bar, an excellent Italian restaurant,  24 hour room service in the butler suites and the beach is just a few minutes away via in your butler driven golf limo.

Due to where this resort lies on the Caribbean Sea the water can get rough and water sports may red flagged.  If that occurs guests will just transfer over to Sandals Grande St. Lucian for water sports on protected Rodney Bay.
