Reviewed 11 December 2017

We booked Rendezvous as two couples looking for a relaxing break and we hoped that we would find a relaxed vibe, with a few activities thrown in and a great beach. What we found was much more... The hotel is in a beautiful setting, the staff are absolutely wonderful, polite, friendly, helpful. The beach is beautiful, clean and water sports are great - all included, we wakeboarded every day. The food is great, Malabar Beach is absolutely wonderful - a la carte for lunch with as much wine as you can drink (we hit the rose supply quite hard). The bars all serve great drinks, staff are happy to make you espresso martinis (thank you Ian - you’re the best) would not recommend booking activities through the hotel, go via TripAdvisor as they very overpriced. Thank you Rendezvous we will be back! This hotel shares facilities with the Body Holiday, make sure you go on at least one day as it is well worth a change of scene, a more relaxed vibe, lunch with a different outlook and the beach there is much nicer than Rendezvous.

Stayed: December 2017, travelled as a couple

I can add very little to the full and positive reviews already written. Read them - they are not misleading. It is a great place for a relaxing holiday - specially up by the pool in the water garden, looked after by Glen (otherwise known as Pappy) - a reserved, gentle giant who works ceaselessly for his guests. Keep an eye on the activities board - you are not harassed into joining in, but there are great things to do - I recommend the carving class, run by an interesting and talented artist who cones well prepared to support you in doing your first piece of lie relief carving. Also, make a point of seeing the local kids with special needs who entertain at lunch time one a fortnight - the concentration, enjoyment and commitment is inspiring.

Dear taffandhubby,

StolenTime is indeed a wonderful place for couples who are seeking time to relax, rejuvenate and spend quality one to one time together. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed some of the activities, especially the wood carving lesson with Jack. It is also very good to know that you enjoyed the bi-weekly lunch time entertainment by the students of the Dunnottar School in Saint Lucia.

We all look forward to seeing you again!

Kind Regards,

Yhasmine.

My husband and I visited The Rendezvous Resort on 7th November 2017 to celebrate my 60th Birthday and our 37th Wedding Anniversary. We pushed the boat out and booked the helicopter transfer from the airport in the south of the island to the airport in the north of the island followed by a short car journey to the hotel (this was worth every penny). We were greeted with a refreshing fruit punch plus a bottle of champagne on ice left in our bedroom which was a first floor Veranda Garden suite with a large balcony. All three restaurants were brilliant for food and service and the entertainment was very enjoyable including the dance lessons which I thoroughly enjoyed (nothing to beat a private swing dance lesson with Max).Having worked in the Hotel industry for many years, we appreciated the staff anticipating our every need from Geo (who served us drinks on the beach and renewed our beach towels whenever required) to all the restaurant and entertainment staff when nothing was too much trouble. Not even the occasional flight taking off from the local airport over the resort could spoil this idyllic experience. Well-done to ALL THE STAFF including housekeeping, porters, gardeners, you all care and it shows! Ian & Teresa O'Hara

Room Tip: Verandah garden suite upper floor preferred to ground floor for more privacy

Overall, we had an amazing vacation and would highly recommend this hotel - and the island of Saint Lucia. Two small items for improvement - we would have liked is a stocked in room minibar; at least stock with a couple sodas/beer. (they only stock with bottle of water). 2nd - add a little background music in the Piano Bar, for when the Pianist is not playing it is too quiet. The piano bar is a beautiful place and with that little touch would be perfect. All the good stuff: This hotel is a true "COUPLES RETREAT". They have all couples activities, romance is top of the list achieved by the ambience created by the staff & activities. Couples everything! Yoga, Pilates, tubing, cooking class, art class, etc etc etc. There is no pressure to participate - or not. Each couple makes their vacation as they wish, but all the activities are there for the taking. Our vacation was perfect right from the start of our arrival being escorted to the terrace lounge for our orientation, welcome drink and cold cloth. There is truly no part of the trip that lacks the special care and attention guests receive. We stayed in the Garden Suite section and it was perfect. Our room had a partial ocean view, & was newly renovated. AC was super quiet. Bed and Pillows super comfortable. We had great sleeps every night. The hotel resort is not that large, so really any room is relatively close to the beach and pools. The garden room is standard hotel room size with spacious bathroom area. Beautifully decorated and in excellent condition. It is obvious the hotel management has high attention to detail. All areas of the hotel are in perfect condition, very well maintained. Early in the morning you see all the hotel grounds staff preparing the grounds to perfection before the guests are awake. Then the grounds staff all quietly disappear. Lovely, romantic lazy river area is the best with all these private little nooks for relaxation. The service level of all the staff is the best. They are so attentive and pleasant and make you FEEL like they want you there, you are who matters. They all have a smile on their face and make you feel warm and welcome. Personalized service. Yes it is an all inclusive, better than that, it is an "exclusive" experience. Superb service EVERYWHERE. Beach area - within 5 minutes you are served with a bottle of water on ice and two glasses. if you step away from your beach bed, the attendant tidies your towel and brushes away any sand. At the pool, the bar staff bring everyone a glass of water at least a couple times a day; also they bring around a cold towel for each person. Little attentions that are so cool and add to the perfection of the EXPERIENCE. Excellent food at the resort. What buffet? Even the buffet was excellent. Each breakfast they also serve one specialty item apple crepes, potato crepes, asparagus eggs benedict for example. Dinner is al a carte on most days which was a pleasant surprise. Meals are all superb from beginning to end. Desserts are artful. All meals had expert presentation. Saint Lucia is a tropical nature paradise & equally so, the resort is a tropical paradise. Sitting on our balcony I counted 40 birds flying from one tree to the next in my view - in less than 3 minutes. Quietly sitting on our balcony a little bird hops onto my lap! So cute. Tiny songbird visitors every morning on the balcony. The nights are complete with the lovely sounds of music from the tree frogs. Everything about our stay was given special attention to detail (and dare I say had a woman's touch). Exceptional. We loved every minute and both felt sad to leave. We hope to see you again in Saint Lucia. Transfer to and from the hotel was very comfortable. Both of our drivers maintained the level of service of the Rendevous hotel itself. The least favoured part of the trip was the airport departure - not enough space in the airport lounge area & lack of air conditioning! May this be something the St Lucia Tourist fund can help with? To sum it up: The employees of the hotel giving personalized service are what makes the special difference. The size of this boutique hotel (100 rooms) also was the perfect size. Not so large and busy. Quiet, sophisticated, personalized excellence. The perfect couples retreat.
