Saint Lucia Isn’t Just for Lovers

By Aubrie Gerber, November 19, 2018

Sure, Saint Lucia may be touted as a honeymoon paradise, but that doesn’t mean MICE planners should write it off for incentivized trips and corporate retreats. Home to volcanic mud baths, bountiful reefs and waterfalls, meeting planners ought to be eager to host groups in Saint Lucia. Not to mention, this Eastern Caribbean island offers direct flights from eight major U.S. cities—Miami, New York, Chicago, Boston, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Atlanta and New Jersey—making the woes of international travel a thing of the past.

Lodging & Meeting Space

Marigot Bay Resort and Marina overlooks the world-known mega-yacht destination and movie set for the 1967 Dr. Doolittle film. Guests are just feet away from the newly renovated marina while still feeling tucked away within the resort’s property that features luxurious accommodations and renovated meeting spaces that embrace Saint Lucia’s eco-friendly environment. Since the resort and marina work hand in hand, the marina’s Saltwater Services can help arrange all seaside excursions to depart directly from the resort’s dock.
