The Landings (with all-inclusive option) on the family-friendly Caribbean island of Saint Lucia offers a relaxing five-star retreat. You’re a 10-minute walk away from Pigeon Island, where kids can roam the historic sights and enjoy being King of the castle from the top, or head to Rodney Bay Marina for more life. This is a holiday that’s perfect for families looking for a combination of downtime combined with some adventures (a drive-through trip to a volcano or hiking in the Pitons).
The resort is stylish with plantation-like buildings set amongst the landscaped grounds. The safe gently sloping beach is perfect for children with lots of water sports. There’s a zip wire and kids’ club to keep them happy, where they’ll head out to Pigeon Island for picnics, learn limbo dancing and play beach cricket. The three restaurants offer a range of intercontinental food and there are kids’ meals and in-room dining. Babysitting can be organised so you can enjoy the weekly jazz nights with cocktail in hand before heading out the next day on one of the organised tours.
Rooms are elegant and spacious with beach or pool views and huge verandas that can fit several families on one go. Some of them come with jet pools.
