When I was looking for a hotel in St Lucia, I was really chuffed when I found this Romantic Hideaway in St Lucia called the Mango Beach Inn in Marigot Bay.

It’s tucked away in what was once described by James A. Michener as the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean. Not that I've seen all the bays in the Caribbean, but this one is truly one for a postcard. The bay is surrounded on three sides by steep, lushly vegetated hills. It's not only very pretty, this bay also provides shelter for boats during hurricane season when they are docked side by side in the small marina. Apparently the atmosphere in the bars and restaurants dotted around the bay is pretty lively when that happens. 

Mango Beach Inn is on the far side of the bay and can only be reached by a small ferry. Free of charge for guests. When I first stepped out of the ferry, I was greeted on the dock by the friendly house dog and Jim, one of the owners and my bags were swiftly taken up the steps, that wind through the lush, tropical garden, all the way up to the house.

After check-in I was shown to my room which was the Blue Bamboo Cottage, decorated in a delightfully Caribbean style and equipped with my own en-suite bathroom and private patio, great for sunsets spent sipping on a glass of wine.

I loved having breakfast at Mango Beach. It’s served upstairs in the main lounge with all around views across the bay. It’s so peaceful to have your cereal while gazing out at the bobbing sailing boats in the marina and being entertained by the friendly, little hummingbirds fluttering from tree to tree in the garden down below.

There is a small pool in the garden, but I spent most of my stay in Marigot Bay lazing on a sunbed at the tranquil beach a short walk away from the inn. Don’t worry if you’re not a beach bum, as Judith, the other owner, can book you on a whole host of activities and excursions as well.There is a 5 star restaurant, called the Rainforest Hideaway next door to the B&B serving European/Caribbean fusion meals in an atmospheric setting.  Its waterside location makes it a very romantic place to have dinner. But even if you’re dining alone, the fish will come and say hello and keep you company during your meal.
