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.

Ti Kaye is a small, yet friendly and charming resort set on one of the lush hillsides of St Lucia above a remote, sandy beach. Ideal for couples who are looking for a secluded getaway, relax in the rustic and elegant atmosphere in the midst of nature.
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 colourful 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 snorkelling, 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 Centre 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.
All Ocean View Rooms have a view of the Caribbean Sea and feature a large bedroom, spacious deck with two rocking chairs, table and a double hammock. They also have ceiling fans and air conditioning, four poster beds with mosquito nets, complimentary tea and French press coffee facilities, a mini-fridge, telephone, hairdryer, iPod dock, in room safe, walk-in closet, iron and ironing board plus daily maid and turn down service.

I was immediately charmed by Ti Kaye. The secluded location and environmental focus really appealed to me. The fact that the resort boasts the most extensive wine cellar in St Lucia, housed in an impressed underground wine cave, also made it feel like something of a spiritual home for me!
The products in the spa are made locally on St Lucia exclusively for Ti Kaye. In keeping with the ethos of embracing the natural environment, if you opt for a body scrub you have the opportunity to go out and pick some seasonal fruit and then prepare your own scrub with it. The spa looks out over the Caribbean Sea - and to ensure you don't miss the beautiful view while lying face down on your treatment bed they have installed an angled mirror - a lovely touch I thought!
We were at Ti Kaye on international Earth Day and to mark the occasion the Ti Kaye staff went lionfish hunting. Lionfish are an invasive species in Caribbean coral reefs without natural predators to control the population. So at Ti Kaye, they set forth to spear fish lionfish, which were then skilfully prepared and cooked by the talented Executive Sous Chef. We were presented with a triumphant trio of lionfish tempura, grilled lionfish and lionfish cerviche. I think the cerviche was possibly the most delicious thing I ate on my whole trip to the Caribbean.

More rustic in style than other hotels in St Lucia but that is part of the charm of Ti Kaye. A lovely stretch of beach below the property which you have to take a few steep steps to get to but certainly worth it! Great snorkelling within the bay and a fantastic dive school there too. The location of the spa is amazing, locally produced spa products and all open air so you can enjoy the breeze. The hotel is home to an impressive wine cellar with some famous labels. The General Managers are passionate about their hotel and are incredibly welcoming and hands on.

Ti Kaye is a little gem and a really charming beach retreat for those looking for an intimate escape, be that a honeymoon or just a romantic break. I loved the remote location and the charming rooms, with hammocks and some with pools to just kick back Caribbean style. The managers are so passionate about the place and will arrange bespoke activities that interest their guests. The spa has the most incredible views and the wine cellar is a great addition for guests to indulge whilst staying here. The diving is very well run so I'd highly recommend that anyone with a keen interest in the underwater world stay here.

Ti Kaye is a sweet little resort, with traditional cottage-style accommodation. A little more rustic than many of our other Caribbean hotels, but all part of its charm. The beach is beautiful, although down a lot of steps, which can be tough going on the way back up at the end of the day! There is parking though, so if you have a hire car, you can always drive up the hill!

Set on a cliff top overlooking the stunning blue waters of the Caribbean, this small rustic accommodation offers Caribbean-style cottage accommodation, some of which have their own plunge pool. The resort has an amazing wine cellar and is proud that it is probably the best in St Lucia. The bar is certainly a good place to take advantage of the beautiful sunsets. The owners are very attentive and keen to make sure that guests have a great stay.

One of my favourite properties in the Caribbean, and amazingly one of the cheapest! Ti Kaye Resort & Spa is adorable and lovingly run by the general manager, Katie. Her enthusiasm is contagious and guests who stay there always remark on the lovely atmosphere and warm welcome.
Its location is spectacular, set on a cliff top overlooking the Caribbean sea, with wonderful views. Yes, this does mean lots of steps to the beach, but this is a way of working off the plentiful meals that are on offer. The food isn't gourmet here but it's good and hearty and uses plenty of fresh ingredients, and you can always head out to eat for an evening or two.
The beach is black sand, typical of a volcanic island, and open to locals as well so can get busy, however, the water is turquoise and clear and offers great snorkelling.
The accommodation is in cottages with inside/outside bathrooms and the most adorable verandas, each with a hammock made for two. You must go for a treatment in the spa at least once, the views are spectacular!
