We just got back from 8 days at the Stonefield Estate and I just wanted to put a plug in for it. This resort is right next to the petit piton and has awesome views. You get your own little hut/villa and your own pool! If you’re looking for night life and lots of people, this is not the place for you, but if want solitude, privacy, relaxation and a wonderful time to be a new couple, this is the place to be. We were so excited when most of our entire plane (which was pretty much all honeymooners, it was actually pretty funny) seemed to be going to the same places, but we were heading to our own little private paradise. It is also on the same part of the island as all the volcanoes and waterfalls and good snorkeling so nothing is too far away. We absolutely loved this place and miss sitting by our pool, looking our over the piton. I know that its a little difficult to pick a place to stay somewhere when you’ve never been there before, and when we booked with Stonefield, we just hoped that we would like the place, so I just wanted to put this up for all those of you who are looking for aplace to honeymoon. I’d be happy to answer any questions about it and some of the other resorts we saw as well. I’ll put a pic up later too.

I actually came across the stonefield estate last night! We are getting married next June and are eyeing St. Lucia. How far in advance did you book? How long of a ride is it from the airport? Oh and one more question, how was the weather? I read a review that rainy season starts in May–so I’m a little worried. Thanks!

We booked in December for our May wedding. The advantage of that was that we got the best villa in our price range (frangiapani- ask for it if you can). But, we also met a couple there that got married in April and booked it for the last week in May after their wedding. The resort was actually never full when we were there. Its about an hour from the airport. But, worth the trade off. We wanted to stay in the south, near the pitons because when you think of St Lucia, you think of the pitons so there really wasn’t a way around it. We also didn’t want to stay in any of the big crowded resorts near Rodney Bay so that meant an hour ride no matter where we stayed. Even though our ride was long, most of our plane was going to Sandals which would have been close to a 2 hour drive. We were sp excited to be there that it really didn’t matter. The rain would be a good question. It was really hot while we were there. It did rain a bit most days, which was actually kind of pleasant and didn’t stop us from doing anything that we were doing. It was mostly 5-10 minute showers that rolled off the mountains and quickly passed thru. But, I don’t know if it gets worse in June or not. Check out their website again soon, they were mentioning that they are taking photos of all the villas to put on the website. I know they were taking pics of ours as soon as we left.
Have fun honeymoon shopping. Wherever you end up will be awesome cause its your HONEYMOON
