Cool Caribbean canopies


A mosey from the marina

As breath-snatching as it is serene, Capella Marigot Bay hotel has one of the best locations on St Lucia. Set into the hill above the Caribbean’s most beautiful harbour, the luxury hotel is a sprawl of palm fronds, sun beds and two infinity pools. The mega-yacht marina below means top-tier people watching and a flow of local fishermen peddling the freshest catches, but the secluded spa, romantic restaurant and tucked-away suites ensure maximal seaside seduction.

Our favourite rooms

There are two sun-heated freshwater infinity pools, each surrounded by cabanas, umbrellas and sun loungers. The upper-level pool is family-friendly with bay views; the lower pool offers an adults-only dip, with a swim-up pool bar.


Tucked behind a veil of palm fronds, the Auriga Spa is an indoor-outdoor sanctuary inspired by nature. Treatments use native traditions, sea salt, volcanic rock and local herbs. There is also a menu of signature treatments inspired by phases of the moon.

Packing tips

Bring your nautical niceties: access to the region’s toniest marina means mariners from the world-class yachts often head to the hotel for dinner.


All common areas, including the pools and restaurants, are wheelchair accessible. There is one dedicated ground-floor room adapted for wheelchair access.


All ages are welcome. Families are entitled to four hours of free babysitting per week, and the hotel has plenty of child-friendly activity suggestions, as well as kids’ menus and games.

The island’s main gateway is Hewanorra International Airport (, a 60-minute drive from the hotel. It offers flights from London (, New York ( and other major cities. The hotel can arrange transfers, starting at $100. There is a smaller hub, George F L Charles Airport, which primarily operates flights within the Caribbean, and is a 35-minute drive from the hotel.


Those interested in exploring the island should hire a car from the rental kiosks at the airport, but take note that signage is very light, so many of the landmarks along the route are restaurants, fire stations and water tanks, rather than actual road signs. The hotel is on the west coast, and staff can provide the detailed driving directions. Valet parking is available at no charge.

Worth getting out of bed for

Although plenty of guests will be content to settle in beside the infinity pool and plan nothing more exerting than a spa treatment, Capella offers plenty of activity along the western coast of St Lucia. Each guest is assigned a dedicated personal assistant to maximise enjoyment, starting with arrival travel logistics and including any romantic meals or whims along the way. Those looking to migrate from the pools to the sea can board a free ferry to serene LaBas Beach, but the staff can also assist with rentals of snorkel equipment and point guests to the best spots around the island for spotting rainbow-coloured fish. The waters off St Lucia are also ideal for jet skiing, sunset cruises and deep-sea fishing for marlin and tuna.

Interested in exploring the island’s inland rainforests and remote beaches? Hire a car. The world’s only drive-in volcano, Soufriere – it’s like a Caribbean Old Faithful – is an hour south of the hotel and a fun stop. As for time by the sea, Anse Chastanet Beach, on the southwest coast, is ideal for snorkelling, and has dark, soft sands for lounging. Anse de Pitons Beach, named for its setting at the base of the Pitons peaks, has volcanic sands, and is a perfect picnic beach.

Local restaurants

Marina Village, just a quick walk from the hotel, holds excellent restaurants for anyone looking to explore beyond Capella. The waterfront restaurant Masala Bay specialises in Indo-Chinese dishes made with Caribbean ingredients, such as mahi mahi with chilli and garlic, and lamb with ginger and spices. Set over a lagoon lit to show off the fish at night, The Rainforest Hideaway is a short stroll from the hotel and is ideal for a romantic dinner; the restaurant serves up Creole fish dishes and frequent live music. A 20-minute drive from the hotel, the aptly named Pink Plantation House Restaurant is a candy-hued plantation-style home high on a hill with perfect sea views, a spacious veranda and a garden of tropical palms for added ambience. Shop the artist’s boutique on-site for pottery or postcards, then sit down to local specialties, including curried shrimp, lobster and fresh juices.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this Caribbean waterfront hotel in St Lucia and unpacked their rum and sarongs, a full account of their island luxury break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside/postcard from Capella Marigot Bay in St Lucia…


It’s worth making a grand entrance to Capella Marigot Bay. Sure, guests can arrive by plane, then car to the luxury waterfront hotel – most do. But for the ultimate experience, sail into Capella Marina, a favoured port by some of the world’s best yachts, and the cove that led author James Michener (a frequent visitor to Hawaii and the South Pacific) to deem it the “most beautiful” bay.

The water is also the best place to first take in the hotel, a haven of dark wood built up into the densely planted hillside. The hotel manages to perfectly balance the plentiful attractions  of the nearby village with the serenity of a hideaway.

Despite its close proximity, the hotel is a bastion of seclusion. Beautifully designed with lounge chairs, cocoon-like sun beds and plenty of umbrellas, the pool decks each hold an infinity plunge pool, one with a swim-up bar. There is also a sanctuary-like spa. The four restaurants and bars take advantage of fresh-caught local fish, island produce and tropical juices, often sourced from fishermen docking below, and seasoned seamen often gather at the Rum Cave to share stories. At the end of the day, there are few better places to bed down than in one of Capella’s Balinese-influenced rooms, with bright fabrics, massive windows and a terrace or balcony, many with prime views of the boats and bustling Marina Village for the excitement of the next day.
