Ti Kaye Resort and Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
Ti Kaye is a beautiful remote resort. We arrived via boat and stayed on the resort for three nights. We spent 2 nights in a beautiful sea view room, and upgraded to a secluded plunge pool cottage for the last night. You are virtually sitting on the edge of the glorious Caribbean Sea within a rain forest. No tv, limited wi-fi, lots of nature and clean fresh air. If you love your partner you will love this romantic hide-away. The huge outdoor/private showers were heavenly. We had to figure out where things were on our own, but we enjoyed the autonomy. This is not your all inclusive, all engaging, tourist trap, it's a nature paradise for adults that don't mind a walk, or a 160 step hike down to the beach. The beach was calm with lots of areas to explore. We had great drinks on the beach and got some mangoes too. Both straight and gay couples were enjoying this hideaway. The only thing we found is that the menu remained the same and food was a bit pricey ($100US for dinner for 2). Bring some fruit, crackers, and a bottle of wine, and relax and enjoy.
We simply loved Ti Kaye! We were here for the second 1/2 of our trip to St. Lucia on our honeymoon. We arrived by water taxi to their private dock. Greeted to arrival drinks and took in the view of the amazing Anse Cochon (the beach/cove). We were taken to check in via shuttle from the beach to the lobby (steep hill). We were shown to our room by Fred (he was awesome). Amazing cottage on the hill with private pool and the best view in my opinion (room G), as it was uninterrupted by our cottages and got to see the entire cove. Warm rooms but they do have AC that works decently well. The outdoor shower is incredible and the soaps/shampoo they make on site are better than any cosmetic I've ever used. The private plunge pool is perfect temperature. We spent our days relaxing - starting with the complimentary continental breakfast which was DELICIOUS and had a huge variety of options. We then went to the beach where we laid out, snorkeled in the BEST water in the Caribbean, seriously it's incredible. 50 feet down with perfect clarity, millions of fish and coral. It's no surprise that all of the other resorts bring their guests here to snorkel. We'd eat and drink in our own cabana on the beach and were attended to wonderfully by Kevin and Samulus. At the dive shop we'd check out paddleboards, kayaks and snorkels and spend the day taking in the amazing water. At night we'd eat at the fabulous restaurant. Chef Nigel knows what he's doing! The food was amazing, every night. The sommelier, Keygan, recommended the best wines to pair with our meals. Kaylee (I think she was the manager), would check in on us at our table each night and answer any questions. All in all, this resort is relaxing, classy, beautiful. Sits on the best water in the Caribbean for snorkeling and swimming. We will certainly be back!
St Lucia is fabulous. We climbed Gros Piton, had a mud bath, walked plantations and rainforest, visited Soufriere, Castries, Pigeon Island and revelled in the setting of Ti Kaye with its heavenly beach and stunning views. Our cottage, Lanmou, had a wonderful view, cooling plunge pool and lovely outdoor shower. We didn't want to leave. The beach was an easy walk down and up the well maintained steps. Swimming, snorkelling and kayaking were wonderful. Service on the beach, and resort in general, was friendly and nurturing. We had lots of fun and also rested in the most lovely of spots. Thankyou.
We were day guests at Ti Kaye, so this isn't a review of the resort. We had a lovely morning on their gorgeous beach. Anse Cochon a really lovely bay. Now - I had a minor accident - getting tumbled by a wave. Long story short, so many people came to my assistance. Four lovely nurses (Canadian, French, English and Australian). were among the holidaymakers on the beach who attended to me so well. The hotel were incredibly good - I know the manager was involved. First aid kits, ambulance, towels etc all organised. And our car looked after overnight. I don't know anyone's names but hope that first of all, maybe those lovely nurses might read this - and also Ti Kaye management. A huge, huge thank you to all those involved. I'm perfectly well now, totally recovered and enormously grateful to all who helped us that day. For anyone considering it, this beach is totally safe and absolutely gorgeous. Under certain conditions, a swell comes in. The hotel operates a flag system and they had a red flag up. Most stupidly, we ignored this and I got into a little trouble. Don't let that put you off! The beach is solo sky with its loungers etc and you can always still paddle. What happened to me v unusual. But obviously, one ought to pay attention to flag systems! Meanwhile, I can't wait to go back as I missed having lunch in the gorgeous beach bar and never got the fresh daiquiri I was looking forward to! Again - you know who are my beach angels and Ti Kaye management - THANK YOU so much
