Ti Kaye Resort and Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This resort is for those people who want to get away from their crazy life, kick back and enjoy your significant other. Unlike a lot of the other resorts their transfer was actually waiting for us at the airport when we arrived an hour and a half late. The drive from the airport to the resort was approximately 80 minutes. When you get there they greet you and make you feel very welcome. I think we shared the whole resort with eight other couples which was spectacular because everyone is there to enjoy themselves and have a good time. With that being said there are no big crowds and it feels like the resort is all yours with a few friends. The accommodations were very nice. We especially enjoyed the outdoor shower which comes with every cottage. Yes the beds were even comfortable. The chef they have on grounds is very good. We enjoyed every breakfast, lunch, and dinner we had. I can't say enough about the staff. They are there for you and anything you need. We will definitely be returning to Ti Kaye. Management (Chris and Sara) were wonderful. I will miss this place untill I return.
So over the years my wife and I have stayed at Ti Kaye at least three times. Every time it gets just that little bit better! There appears to be an ethos of constant evolution and the addition of small touches and improvements show that the ownership/management are still passionate about delivering excellence to their customers. What stood out this time is that although the food has always been excellent, this time its just upped the ante that little bit more. I believe there is a new executive chef since we last stayed and it shows in the creativity, flair, quality, diversity and calibre of the food. Always wonderfully presented, full of flavour and local ingredients. Excellent all round at every meal. The staff as always were without exception wonderful. Genuinely friendly, professional and concerned for your wellbeing from the front gate security, to the reception, restaurant staff, room and ground maintenance, beach restaurant and Tristan the new dive instructor, everyone was genuinely friendly and professional, with total authenticity, they really care about your stay, its not put on or forced! The staff are a major asset! As is the location which continues to be breathtakingly beautiful. Waking up in the morning and sitting on your balcony with a fresh pressed coffee to watch the comings and goings of the local fishermen in the bay and the tranquility on the water is just the perfect antidote to a modern stressful life! The birds and verdant foliage all around only add to the tranquil ambiance. Our room "Chalet" (means hot in creole, not as in an alpine cottage!) was close to the Kai Koko Spa and the main restaurant so a short walk but felt totally secluded and private. Its dipping pool was the perfect place to soak and cool off. Other reviews nail the general excellence of the resort, so not much else to say other than - Stay for a few nights or a whole week, switch off from the outside world and settle into the ambiance of the place. Eat well, drink well - the Jack Daniels Old Fashioned was my personal favourite cocktail and the wine list is epic. If you get off property go do some exploring, talk to the front desk about what to do. There is a stunning waterfall in nearby Canaries, but you will need to ask reception to organise a guide to take you there. Book it, you won't regret it, unless you're looking for lots of outside nightlife etc and then this is definitely NOT the place for you, because its miles from anywhere. But that is exactly what makes it so perfect for those looking to escape! Thanks Ti Kaye, we will be back!!!
We visited St. Lucia and Ti Kaye for the first time in July 2017. The transfer from/to Hewanorra airport takes about 90 minutes along very hilly and curvy terrain. Once on the grounds of the resort, however, the benefits of its remote location on the island's west coast become apparent. Our visit came during the rainy season, which included very brief showers every day, and alternating bright sunshine and partly cloudy skies. During our week-long stay, only 1 day had an extended period of rain.The genuinely friendly staff is Ti Kaye's biggest asset, from the front desk assisting with excursions, to the wait staff in the restaurants, eager to have you try the local cuisine. Food is above average, with plenty of variety to try something different each day in a week's visit. Look carefully on the resort's website before you arrive and consider which meal plan works best for your vacation plans.We were quite satisfied with the Full Board meal plan (breakfast, lunch & dinner), as it is somewhat inconvenient to go off the resort property for meals, due to its remote location.Ti Kaye offers a quiet and relaxing environment, but also accommodates more active travelers by offering several options for activities off the resort.The beach is excellent, offering both sun and shade. Because all beaches in St. Lucia are public, other resorts boat their customers into the bay throughout the day. For some Ti Kaye customers this could be a disappointment, but it also provided an opportunity to people watch.During our stay the resort was less than half-filled, with no occupants in the adjacent unit. We enjoyed the privacy, and the porch of our unit, with a hammock, table and chairs, was great for relaxing, reading, and just looking out into the water. Our room was small, no television, but we didn't mind at all. The walk-in closet and private outdoor shower were both a very nice touch. Ti Kaye does everything right for those who just want to unplug and unwind. We will be back!
This was our second visit to Ti Kaye and I cannot express how much we enjoyed coming back to this place. It is the complete package from the stunning and secluded location to the great beach with wonderful snorkeling all the way to the fabulous cottages and service. Always friendly and helpful. If you do visit I highly recommend their Spa as well as the Wine tasting.We will definitely come back for a third time!
I am beyond thankful to have had the chance to visit this Caribbean oasis called the Ti Kaye Resort and Spa. I rarely write travel reviews but my enthusiasm for this resort is off the charts right now so here goes... Let's start from the beginning... once you book your trip you should call or email the front desk to arrange transport from the airport to the resort. It's an extra charge but well worth it and it's reasonably priced. Do not attempt to rent a car and drive yourself- you will regret it. Our driver was very nice- he met us curbside at the airport with a name sign and we then headed off in a nicely air-conditioned van through the jungle. Other reviews note this curvy bumpy ride... its fine, not much different than any other small mountain road in Tennessee, New Hampshire or Colorado. You go up and over the mountains of the rain forest and its amazing- take pictures! Yes, it is about an hour and half to get there and the only bumpy part is near the end of the drive once you get to the resort. On arrival, the staff greets you with delicious rum punch and if you have a little vertigo from the drive, you'll be just fine after a few sips. Ingrid welcomed us, she gave us a little tutorial of the resort and our bags were delivered to our cottage. Our room was wonderful. Two rocking chairs and a hammock on the front porch overlooking an unobstructed view of the inlet will make you never want to leave the room. I was on the fence about the outdoor shower but I will agree with everyone else's reviews here- IT'S AMAZING! Especially when one day when it rained- I showered with the rain and it was incredible! I loved the chocolate-mint shampoo and body gel. I recommend purchasing a bottle from the spa. The room was always clean, and we received nightly turn down service where the windows were closed, AC turned on, sheets turned down, and mosquito net closed around the bed. Considering we were in a rain forest, we never really got any bug bites (I just got one little bite on my foot). We brought our own bug spray, purchased a citronella spray at the gift shop and they have a very nicely scented citronella lemongrass body lotion in the bathroom I used daily after the shower - all of which seemed to keep the bugs away. They also provide citronella candle for the porch. I took the advice of other reviewers and brought earplugs. The nightly sounds of the forrest can be pretty intense but with earplugs in, you hardly notice. I slept so deeply, I had crazy vivid dreams every night and felt revived every morning. I still needed my morning coffee which was nice to get a french press and local coffee complimentary with the room. If we were staying longer, we'd have joined some of the many excursions and activities the hotel offers off-site, but we were just fine staying at the resort. We spent our first two days in a beach cabana. I highly recommend the water hammocks. We also spent an afternoon snorkeling- marveling at the beautiful reefs and colorful fish. Our 3rd day was rainy so we took advantage of the spa and got a chocolate body scrub and wrap and massage- which was so luxuriously perfect. The Ti Kaye Spa is top notch- don't miss out!All of the food was excellent. Our compliments to the chef. The daily breakfast buffet was great, but you can also order eggs and a hot menu a la carte if you want. I had eggs and bacon one morning just to mix it up. Lunches at the beach bar were all excellent. My favorite dish was the local fish sandwich and I also loved the sweet potato fries. I wanted to try the seafood pizza but maybe next time. The dinners were all fantastic as well. The pepper pot beef, conch fritters, and the local fish of the day were some of my personal favorites. We were lucky to be there for the resort's weekly "Manager's Happy Hour" followed by the chef's Creole Tasting Menu which was divine. We also tried 21 year aged rum and cuban cigars one night which was a perfect combo end to an evening. Ti Kaye is very much a couples resort, but you can go with a small group of friends too. We were there to celebrate our honeymoon and we were most certainly not the only ones. At the happy hour, we met nice couples from South Jersey, Pittsburg, and Oklahoma. There were a few other nice looking folks we didn't get a change to meet, but I wish them well and hope they have a lifetime of happiness. Ti Kaye is also a very gay friendly resort and we were not the only gay couple visiting. Our last day left me a little mopey because I did not want to leave. The hotel had availability but the airline did not, otherwise, we'd have extended our stay. One of the couples we met said this was their second time to the resort and I, like them, plan to return. I loved this trip, more than any other destination I have visited. It you really want to "get away" this is the place for you.
