Guide to Gay Friendly Hotels in Saint Lucia Caraibe (2024 Updated)

When talking about gay friendly resorts in Caraibe, Saint Lucia is not on the top due to it’s more conservative rules but that not means that they are no gay friendly hotels Saint Lucia.

In April 2015, Lorne Theophilus, then Minister of Tourism, Information and Broadcasting said that Saint Lucia welcomes visitors from the LGBT community, that it has always welcomed gay tourists but no changes are planned for Saint Lucia’s colonial-era “buggery” laws.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people living in Saint Lucia face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT members of the population. Same-sex sexual activity is illegal, however the law is not enforced.

Same-sex sexual activity is illegal for males in Saint Lucia.

Saint Lucia is an Eastern Caribbean island nation with a pair of dramatically tapered mountains, the Pitons, on its west coast. Its coast is home to volcanic beaches, reef-diving sites, luxury resorts and fishing villages. Trails in the interior rainforest lead to waterfalls like the 15m-high Toraille, which pours over a cliff into a garden. The capital, Castries, is a popular cruise port.

Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort

Located on the north shore of St. Lucia, Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort overlooks the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea and boasts landscaped gardens and waterfalls, 6 outdoor pools and a luxury spa.

The Windjammer’s air-conditioned rooms and villas feature free high-speed wired internet, cable TV, a mini-fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. Bathrooms include hair dryers and free toiletries. Some of the fully equipped villas offer a private pool.

Casual and formal à la carte dining are offered at this St. Lucia villa resort. There are 5 restaurants and 3 bars to choose from.

Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort & Spa in Saint Lucia, offers an unforgettable Caribbean vacation for families, honeymooners and couples. This exotic 60-acre full service resort is a panorama of picturesque, spacious and secluded hillside villas. With breathtaking views of the cobalt waters of the Caribbean Sea, this Mediterranean village resort is alive with the sights and sounds of beautiful Saint Lucia.

Absorb the stunning beauty of nature at the Windjammer Landing. From dining on tropical fruits at sunrise to enjoying a refreshing cruise at sunset and only your choice of what to do in between. Richly appointed with the warmth of wood and an exotic blend of tropical furnishings, your spacious villa sets the mood for complete relaxation and truly your greatest escape

As things are very expensive at the resort it is recommended to shop for groceries, drinks, etc. in Rodney Bay before you arrive. There is a small grocery store, very expensive, and limited with items and frustrating because prices weren’t listed. The restaurants are expensive which is to be expected…it is the Caribbean and a high end resort, but the service and size of the portions did not always add up to the cost of the food. The taxes are high in St. Lucia which adds to the cost of everything. We had great meals at Dragonfly but Papa Dons left a lot to be desired. Half hearted service and extremely small portions. Embers is a great place for lunch. We only ate breakfast in the villa.

Accommodation-wise, we stayed in a two-bedroom villa with unbelievable views of the bay, although all of the accommodation seems to be perfectly nestled into the hillside so that every room/ villa would have a similarly superb view. The villa was incredible with all of the facilities that you could ever need with lovely, tasteful furnishings. It even had its own plunge pool and private roof terrace.

The beach, views and sunsets were spectacular. The bars were great and when it was open Don Paddy restaurant is a stand out. Not all restaurants are open every night but there was enough. We chose to not go all inclusive which was a good choice as we like to explore other restaurants in the Rodney Bay (Spinnakers, the marina etc) and Marigot Bay areas. We spent far less doing it this way.

I would definitely recommend the street party in Gros Islet on Friday night.

Beautiful resort tucked away in the hills. Loved the vibe of this resort. Would definitely recommend checking out this resort. The food was exceptionally good, staff was very pleasant and very accommodating to our requirements. Shuttle service was available to take us to and from our rooms. The beach was probably my least favorite part of this trip, simply because there were to many rocks in the water

Our villa is perched high on the hill looking west over the lovely flowering trees, sandy beaches and the blue Caribbean Sea. The shuttles from reception to the villas and back were prompt when called and excellent all round. Breakfast was our favourite meal in the open-air Dragonfly restaurant – thanks Gloria and Cheryl for your super friendly service. The new deck extension at Dragonfly is very popular. Lunch was either in beach side Jammers or Embers – thanks Sharon for such a friendly smile and welcome back when you overheard our voices on the beach.

We enjoyed the great Caribbean evening special – with steel drums beating into the tropical evening and the Friday fish fry evening. The resort was quiet during our first week – second week was much busier and it is a good idea to book dinner reservations well ahead of time. There are many trips to take out of the resort – we enjoyed the Pink Plantation and Coal Pot very much. Special mention for Nicole – our Windjammer Ambassador – she handled all our dinner reservation requests and booking taxis to and from the airport very promptly and efficiently – and when we met up with her in the lobby we were greeted with a lovely smile as well.  A gay friendly holiday in the Caribbean does not get much better than a stay at Windjammer, a truly gay friendly hotel Gros Islet.

2. Jade Mountain Resort 5* – LGBT Friendly Hotels Saint Lucia

Jade Mountain
Jade Mountain

Jade Mountain offers accommodation in Soufrière.

Certain rooms include views of the sea or mountain. Extras include bathrobes and slippers.

The nearest airport is St Lucia Hewanorra Airport, 16 km from the property.

Gay Couples particularly like the location.

Rising majestically above its 49 room sister resort Anse Chastanet, a 600 acre beach front property, Jade Mountain is a cornucopia of organic architecture celebrating St Lucia’s stunning scenic beauty. The 29 luxury suites are called sanctuaries, sweeping spaces where bedroom, living area and an extravagant private infinity pool glide into one another to form extraordinary platforms floating out into nature. With the fourth wall entirely absent, Jade Mountain’s sanctuaries are stage-like settings from which to embrace the full glory of St Lucia’s Pitons World Heritage Site and the Caribbean Sea.

Jade Mountain has set a new standard in the Caribbean whether it is for modern design, luxury living or unique resort and guest service experiences.Wrapped around an infinity pool with a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors, the Jade Mountain Club restaurant caters exclusively to resident guests, celebrating James Beard Award winner Chef Allen Susser’s “Jade Cuisine.” Hovering in space above the Jade Mountain Club is the Celestial Terrace, perfect for sunset cocktails or star-gazing.

A wide range of spa services can be enjoyed in the privacy of the Jade Mountain sanctuaries or at Kai en Ciel, Jade Mountain’s boutique spa and fitness studio. The resort major domos and a dedicated resort team ensure outstanding service around the clock.Guests may enjoy the exclusivity and privacy of Jade Mountain plus access to all of Anse Chastanet’s facilities and services:

Nestled amidst a lush tropical 600 acre tropical estate with two soft sand beaches bordering pristine coral reefs, Anse Chastanet is right in the heart of the island’s marine reserves with St. Lucia’s legendary twin peaks, the Pitons, as the dramatic backdrop.The active will enjoy the resort’s amazing range of adventure facilities. Facilities include 4 restaurants & 3 bars, professional spa, PADi 5* scuba centre, water sports with kayaking centre, 12 miles of private biking and hiking trails with mountain bike rental, sailing yacht, 3 boutiques, library and art gallery.

Pretty good. The room service menu is a little short, and the upstairs Jade Mountain Club (restaurant) menu rotates daily. The food itself tasted good, which it should for the prices (27 USD pp for breakfast, 50 USD pp for dinner).

Better than you can imagine. The pictures are nice, but until you’ve spent an afternoon in these sanctuaries you cannot properly comprehend how unique this experience is. Our sanctuary was almost completely private (there were areas that if we went right to the side we could see a sidewalk). Our pool was also amazing. Fairly big and over 5 ft deep with a smaller shallow area for entering, I spent a lot of time in the water! The pool too was 98% private, ie. only if you swim to a far edge might you see out of the room.

Seating for probably 15 was littered around our room affording us many different areas to lounge and relax. The bed was comfortable, we had no mosquitoes (probably due to time of year), and were visited daily by island birds, including a very cute hummingbird.

The bath tub was the best I’ve ever used. Huge, great view, amazing. In terms of the comments about the placing of the toilet, at least in our suite that was not an issue at all. There was more than adequate separation between the living areas and bathroom. The open air shower was also lovely, with a rain head nozzle as well as side jets and a detachable nozzle. Bath products (molton brown) were great as well.

The beach down at anse chastanet is mediocre, but this did not bother us — our pool was more than sufficient.

Overall Experience:
Very good. The staff were attentive, food good enough, and rooms superb. I think the only question is whether or not JM is fantastic enough to pay the full rate for. There is continual work being done at JM, and my guess is that it will go on indefinitely — the project is immense. However, while we occasionally heard some noise from the work it did not interfere with our stay.

The resort was gay friendly. We did see a few teens but mostly middle aged adults. We rarely heard other guests, and JM never felt busy. Our room was extremely private. One could never leave the room — we only did so occasionally for a change of scenery.

3.T i Kaye Resort & Spa 4* – Gay Friendly Hotels Saint Lucia

Ti Kaye Resort & Spa
Ti Kaye Resort & Spa

This resort is situated on the south west coast of the island and offers stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. It features two restaurants, free Wi-Fi, and cottage accommodation with a private balcony and garden shower. Continental breakfast is included in the room rate.

At Ti Kaye Resort & Spa, the full-service spa is located on a cliff with floor-to-ceiling views of the Anse Cochon Bay. The property has an on-site PADI dive shop offering diving and snorkeling excursion and free kayaks. There is an outdoor pool with lounge area. Car rental is also available.

Every spacious accommodation features modern décor with an ocean view. A minibar and fridge are offered for guest convenience. An iPod docking station is also included. Each cottage is fitted with a ceiling fan and air conditioning.

Resort Ti Kaye’s main restaurant, Kai Manje, is open all day serving European and Creole cuisine complete with vegetarian dishes. The Ti Manje beachside bar-restaurant serves sandwiches and salads for lunch, while the Ti Kave wine cellar boasts an extensive collection of wines.

Ti Kaye is very much a couples resort, but you can go with a small group of friends too. We were there to celebrate our honeymoon and we were most certainly not the only ones. At the happy hour, we met nice couples from South Jersey, Pittsburg, and Oklahoma. There were a few other nice looking folks we didn’t get a chance to meet, but I wish them well and hope they have a lifetime of happiness. Ti Kaye is also a very gay friendly resort and we were not the only gay couple visiting.

All of the food was excellent. Our compliments to the chef. The daily breakfast buffet was great, but you can also order eggs and a hot menu a la carte if you want. I had eggs and bacon one morning just to mix it up. Lunches at the beach bar were all excellent. My favorite dish was the local fish sandwich and I also loved the sweet potato fries. I wanted to try the seafood pizza but maybe next time. The dinners were all fantastic as well. The pepper pot beef, conch fritters, and the local fish of the day were some of my personal favorites. We were lucky to be there for the resort’s weekly “Manager’s Happy Hour” followed by the chef’s Creole Tasting Menu which was divine. We also tried 21 year aged rum and cuban cigars one night which was a perfect combo end to an evening

.Our room was wonderful. Two rocking chairs and a hammock on the front porch overlooking an unobstructed view of the inlet will make you never want to leave the room. I was on the fence about the outdoor shower but I will agree with everyone else’s reviews here- IT’S AMAZING! Especially when one day when it rained- I showered with the rain and it was incredible! I loved the chocolate-mint shampoo and body gel. I recommend purchasing a bottle from the spa. The room was always clean, and we received nightly turndown service where the windows were closed, AC turned on, sheets turned down, and mosquito net closed around the bed.


Ti Kaye is a beautiful remote resort. We arrived via boat and stayed on the resort for three nights. We spent 2 nights in a beautiful sea view room, and upgraded to a secluded plunge pool cottage for the last night. You are virtually sitting on the edge of the glorious Caribbean Sea within a rain forest. No tv, limited wi-fi, lots of nature and clean fresh air.

If you love your partner you will love this romantic hide-away. The huge outdoor/private showers were heavenly. We had to figure out where things were on our own, but we enjoyed the autonomy. This is not your all inclusive, all engaging, tourist trap, it’s a nature paradise for adults that don’t mind a walk, or a 160 step hike down to the beach. The beach was calm with lots of areas to explore. We had great drinks on the beach and got some mangoes too. Both straight and gay couples were enjoying this hideaway. The only thing we found is that the menu remained the same and food was a bit pricey ($100US for dinner for 2). Bring some fruit, crackers, and a bottle of wine, and relax and enjoy.

Our cottage was beautiful and totally private, the Caribbean fusion food superb, our excursions expertly managed, and the staff gracious and generous. We made it a point to thank the staff and the owner, Nick Pinnock, for making us feel welcome as a gay couple. Honeymooners filled the air with romance, and we were able to comfortably add romance of our own. Special thanks to Kenny, Theresa, Kim, Pilgrim, Rina, Sandra, and George for their friendly smiles and great service.

Ti Kaye is isolated, which is just what we wanted. It’s a 30-minute taxi ride to the closest town and almost an hour to hopping Rodney Bay in the north. If you’re looking for a big resort, with lots of glitz, music, partying, and shopping, Ti Kaye is not for you. There is plenty to keep you busy here, but if you just want to relax in a peaceful setting, this is the place. Our cottage was “DouDou” (DD), which means sweetheart in the island Patois. It was “ocean view” with a plunge pool rather than “ocean front”. We watched the sun set over the water from our porch on most evenings. Nice!

There were never more than 6 or 8 couples on the beach at any one time. Ti Kaye’s cove, Anse Cochon, is popular with the big resorts—Sandals, Windjammers, etc. Each afternoon, their catamarans would anchor in the cove and take advantage of snorkeling. They are directed to the far side of the beach, so it still felt like the best of the beach was “ours” and remained nice and quiet. It is, indeed, 166 steps to the beach, on sturdy staircases along the face of the cliff. Bring a small backpack or gym bag for the day’s worth of beach stuff. No-see-ums got to us one day at the beach after a brief rain, and we were bitten on our porch a few time. All in all, the bugs weren’t bad. In spite of the ocean breeze, we were grateful for nighttime air conditioning in our cottage. Remember to bring a pair of flip flops, good walking shoes or light hiking boots, a hat, and plenty of sunscreen.

Each morning on our porch, the Lesser Antillean bullfinches ate cashew pieces from our hands. Each evening, the instant the sun dropped below the horizon, the tree frog chorus began. What could be nicer?
