To start planning your vacation to Ti Kaye Resort & Spa
Nestled along a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea and away from the hustle and bustle of the island lies a true St Lucian treasure. This laid-back little village is located on the serene west coast and is simply known as "Ti Kaye", which means small house in the native Creole patois language of St Lucia. It is a secluded, peaceful location - a perfect hideaway for those who seek complete relaxation in casual yet beautiful surroundings.
Choose from a choice of cottages, all with private verandas with hammocks made for two, some also have private plunge pools. They have a colorful Caribbean feel and design features are simple yet elegant. The rooms are fitted with iPod docking stations but technology is not high on the priority list here which adds to the charm of the place.
The small but beautifully situated Kai Koko spa is right on the cliff edge and enjoys breathtaking views, perfect for an indulgent treatment. It features three treatment rooms crafted out of coconut wood and uses the natural organic ingredients that St Lucia has to offer.
A rambling wooden staircase leads 166 steps down to a beautiful cove with silver sands and crystal clear waters - a haven for snorkeling, scuba diving with the island's best dive school, and water sports. The calm waters of the bay are home to St Lucia’s popular shipwreck dive site, "Lesleen M". The Scuba Center is located right on the shoreline and caters to everyone from beginners to the most advanced divers.
Nestled high on the cliff side above the Anse Cochon cove, 33 charming gingerbread cottages line the sloping hill. Rustic elegance in the midst of nature, each cottage or house as the name suggests (ti kaye is Creole for little house), is purposely built facing the ocean to allow breathtaking views of the azure waters below. Each cottage is accessible by a matrix of paths and stairs which are lit up at night.
All cottages and rooms share certain aspects including private outdoor garden showers,
i-pod docking stations and
large balconies with twin hammocks. Their design allows for the easy flow of air to keep the rooms cool when the doors are open, or air conditioning if guests prefer them closed.
Although Ti Kaye Resort & Spa offers a quiet escape from the world, their free WIFI service can be accessed in all rooms for guests not wishing to escape completely from modern life.
|Ocean View Room||
The Ocean View Rooms (OVR) are the standard room category offered at the resort and are styled like a duplex (semi-detached). There is no connecting door inside but the veranda balcony is separated by a door which can be locked or left open if your family or group has occupied both sides. Out of the 14 OVRs, 5 rooms have 2 queen beds instead of the usual king beds of all the other room categories. Equipped with separate entrances at opposite ends, guests are still in a private room with private amenities. Although they are set further back and higher up, each room inside is the same size as the Ocean View Cottages.

When to go
Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination. With an average of 9 hours sunshine a day the peak season runs from December through to April which is the dry season when you can expect very little rainfall. May to November are the slightly wetter months where you will find an increase in rainfall as the summer season goes on and with that some humidity, however the Summer months are still a great time to travel as the temperatures are hot and the rain tends to come in short heavy bursts but not all day long. The wettest months with the most humidity are September and October and these are the most probable months for hurricanes to occur in the region although many islands have not experienced hurricanes for a number of years. The average daily temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter months and mid-eighties in the summertime.
