Located on the stunning, sheltered west coast of Saint Lucia, Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina sits proudly on the hillside of Marigot Bay, a Caribbean icon surrounded by local rainforest and native wildlife. As the newest luxury resort in the Caribbean and following a multi-million-dollar renovation, it is the place to be for a romantic honeymoon or destination wedding.
Food lovers will delight at the exquisite dining options available at the resort with emphasis on the freshest, locally sourced produce and inventive seasonal menus that fuse traditional Saint Lucian flavours with contemporary American and European influences.

The signature restaurant is located at the resort’s highest point, offering couples breathtaking views of the Marina and Marigot Bay. The Rum Cave, tucked underneath the resort, has a native stone and wood design and provides the perfect hideaway for honeymooners to sample local rums and enjoy huge, family style sharing platters. The swim-up Brut Bar is an ideal spot to enjoy tropical cocktails and an enticing menu of local fruits, seafood and sushi dishes and locally inspired ceviche.
Whilst Bayside Café, located in the Marina Village on the water’s edge is a dream location for a sundowner or two. Couples seeking the ultimate in romantic dining can enjoy Capella’s private chef service, intimate tree house dining and long, lazy breakfasts on their own private terrace. Guests can enjoy their days under the Caribbean sun choosing to spend time relaxing under parasols, swimming in the two main pools or feeling the sand between their toes at nearby palm-lined Labas Beach.
