Our Tropical Babymoon at Windjammer St. Lucia

Location: Caribbean, St. Lucia,
Windjammer Resort Babymoon

We are a family that loves to travel, so there was no hesitation in planning a babymoon when we found out we were expecting our second child. As we planned, we knew that we wanted to travel as a family instead of just having a babymoon as a couple, and we wanted to head to a location that was on both of our bucket lists – which is how we came to having our babymoon in St. Lucia. Once that was decided, it came down to working with both Apple Vacations and Windjammer Landing Resort, who hosted us for our babymoon, to get everything scheduled and organized so that we could have a smooth vacation to celebrate the growing of our family at Windjammer St. Lucia.

St. Lucia has always been a place that both my husband and I wanted to visit. We didn’t know much about the resorts there other than what I had seen on social media already, which, from what I saw, wasn’t as family centered as I would have preferred. After working with Apple Vacations on providing our specific timeframe and how we envisioned our babymoon, they pinpointed us to Windjammer Landing Resort in St. Lucia which ended up being the absolute best place for us to have had our babymoon. So, if you’re considering a babymoon in St. Lucia or even just a vacation to St. Lucia, whether celebrating or not, I want to share with you my review on Windjammer St. Lucia and hopefully it’ll convince you to stay here on your next vacation.

THE Villas

Windjammer Landing Resort in St. Lucia is made up of a collection of villas and suites. During our stay, we had the pleasure of staying in a two bedroom villa which I would highly recommend to anyone staying at Windjammer Landing. Our villa was set atop the hillside which gave us amazing views of the main part of the resort and beach below. Inside the villa, we had a master suite which included a king size bed, a walk-in closet, full double vanity bathroom with both tub and shower, and a terrace that overlooked the pool below and gave us a place to enjoy coffee in the morning while watching the sunset.

In addition to the master suite, there was a guest suite which included two twin size beds, walk-in closet, and full double vanity bathroom. For those traveling with young ones, the property did insert bumpers into one of the twin size beds making it perfect for our little guy to comfortably sleep in and protect him from rolling off the bed. Outside of the bedrooms, the villa included a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with a flat screen TV, outside patio and an infinity pool. The villa itself made it very hard for us to leave to even head down to the beach and pools connected to the lobby area because we could spend so much time just enjoying our villa.

One amenity that I highly recommend to opt into is the turn down service. When checking in, guest services allowed us to opt for turn town service and to pick a time when we wanted it to be done. Each night, they would come to the villa and turn down the bed, put on tranquil music to set a peaceful setting, lay out water for the night, and set the temperature at a cool temperature so that there was relief from the heat and it was cool enough to snuggle under the blankets and head right to bed.

THE Beach

It’s not breaking news that the beaches in St. Lucia are just stunning. Just from flying in, it was evident that no matter where you go, you were going to have a wonderful time wading into the crystal clear water. But the beach experience at Windjammer St. Lucia is nothing short of spectacular. Imagine stepping onto our pristine, white-sand beach, where the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea just gathers around you as you can see fish swimming around you. Whether you’re looking to relax under the shade of a palm tree or the cute little umbrellas with chairs along the shore with a refreshing cocktail in hand or dive into the vibrant underwater world, the beach offers something for everyone. The calm, clear waters are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and paddle boarding, providing an ideal setting for both relaxation and adventure.

When arriving on the beach, you’ll first want to locate the towel hut where the gracious staff will provide you with towels and chair covers that they’ll set on your chair if you show them where you’d like to sit on the beach. And if you’re traveling with a little one, they have smaller lounge chairs fit for their size that come outfitted with their own personal umbrella.

While at the beach, you can wade into the water and just enjoy the cool water while standing, sitting in one of the floating loungers, or having a little fun sliding down the inflatable slide. For those seeking a bit more excitement, Windjammer Landing Resort offers a variety of water sports, including kayaking, windsurfing, and sailing which is already included in the price of the stay. Their friendly and professional staff are always on hand to assist, ensuring you have a safe and enjoyable experience. As the day winds down, there’s nothing quite like watching the sunset over the Caribbean from our beachfront, with its golden hues reflecting off the water and creating a truly magical atmosphere. Whether you’re lounging in a hammock, enjoying a romantic walk along the shore, or savoring a beachside dinner, the beach experience at Windjammer Landing is designed to create unforgettable memories.

Also, while you’re hanging out on the beach, you can order drinks and food that is brought right to you by the friendly staff. By just placing a flag in front of you asking for service, they’ll come to you to take your order and bring what you would like right to you. And for those who are looking for a cool treat, make sure to stop by Toppers which is this little cute ice cream stand that is ideal for the young ones to grab a sweet treat.

THE Pools

At Windjammer Landing Resort, the pool experience adds to the overall fun and enjoyment of staying at the resort and basking in the sun in St. Lucia. Outside of the pools at the villas, the main part of the resort houses five stunning swimming pools, each offering a unique ambiance and setting. The main pool, located near the beach, is perfect for families and social gatherings, with plenty of space to swim, splash, and play. You’ll find that many of the scheduled resort activities are in this pool and typically take place earlier in the day. Surrounding the pool you’ll find lounge chairs and umbrella with towels placed ready for your use. The only piece you may have to ask for is the chair covers if you’d like one. As a note, if you’re looking to snag some chairs right around the main pool, you’ll want to get there early as many people tend to save their spot around the pool before heading to breakfast.

While sitting at the main pool, you’ll also receive service to be able to order drinks and lunch around lunch time so that you don’t have to leave your spot if you don’t want to. We took advantage of the drink service for the days we were by the pool and at one point did order lunch, which they’ll give you an option to order from either one of the two restaurants open during lunch time.

Outside of the main, larger pool, you’ll find a smaller pool great for young children right above that pool and for for those seeking a more tranquil escape, our hillside pools offer serene and secluded spots surrounded by lush tropical gardens and breathtaking ocean views. These quieter pools are perfect for reading, meditating, or simply enjoying the peaceful surroundings as they typically aren’t filled with lots of people. The infinity pool, a highlight of the resort, provides an unforgettable experience as it seamlessly blends with the horizon, creating the illusion of swimming directly into the Caribbean Sea. So whether you prefer a lively atmosphere or a secluded retreat, the pool experience at Windjammer Landing Resort caters to all desires, ensuring every guest finds their perfect slice of paradise.

THE Food

When it comes to dining at Windjammer Landing Resort, you’ll find that each restaurant has a variety of options great for those who have parties with different tastes and that each restaurant is very family friendly. While on property, depending on your stay, you’ll be able to visit each one of the restaurants as some are only open for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner solely. The five different restaurants each have their own theme and dedicated menus to transport you and have you enjoying each an every bite.

DRAGONFLY

When you are ready to start your day, head to Dragonfly for a delicious breakfast buffet with a wide selection of fresh fruits, pastries, and hot dishes. You’ll find a variety of stations at the buffet including one where you can get a freshly made omelet and another where you can get a freshly made crepe. In the evening, as the sun sets, Dragonfly transforms into an elegant dining venue where you can savor Caribbean-inspired cuisine, featuring locally sourced ingredients and traditional island flavors. My recommendation is to sit outside on the open space terrace where you can overlook the water while enjoying your meal.

PAPA DON’S

For those who crave the taste of Italy / Mediterranean food, Papa Don’s is a must-visit. This restaurant is the one restaurant that is not located off the main lobby of the resort, but instead is located in a hillside location. This trattoria-style restaurant serves up classic Italian dishes with a Caribbean twist. From handmade pasta to perfectly grilled seafood to freshly made pizzas, every dish is crafted with passion and precision, making it an ideal spot for a romantic dinner or a family feast.

EMBERS / MASALA

Located right on the beach, you’ll find a restaurant that comes with open air and amazing foods. During lunch, the restaurant is Embers and offers a laid-back atmosphere and a menu filled with mouthwatering barbecue favorites. Since it’s a restaurant open during lunch, it is one that you can choose to order from while beach or poolside. I ordered the tacos and absolutely loved them. In the evening, the restaurant transforms to Masala – a restaurant offering a great view of the sunset while serving Indian cuisine. Masala is one of the two restaurants that does require a reservation, so if it is of interest make sure to make your reservation easily with guest services.

UPPER DECK

For a more upscale dining experience, Upper Deck provides an intimate setting with stunning ocean views. Specializing in steaks and seafood, this restaurant prides itself on its gourmet offerings and impeccable service. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply indulging in a memorable meal, Upper Deck delivers a dining experience that is both sophisticated and satisfying.

JAMMERS

This restaurant is the go-to spot for casual, all-day dining. With a diverse menu that includes everything from light snacks to hearty meals. Enjoy a refreshing cocktail, a delicious pizza, or a fresh salad while you take in the lively beachside atmosphere. And since this another restaurant available for lunch, you can order your beachside or poolside meal from this restaurant too.

At one point in our stay, my husband and I did take a little time for ourselves and was able to because of the Kid’s Club offered at Windjammer Landing.

For our stay, I was able to enjoy a prenatal massage that worked out aches and tension in my body that I didn’t even realize that I was holding. After the morning massage, I was able to continue the rest of the day with ease and tranquility.
