Waking up in St Lucia the first day was incredible, even with waking up at 5AM due to the time difference haha. Everything still felt surreal when i opened my eyes. Once we were unpacked we got ready, took in our views from the bedroom balcony and headed out to go and explore the resort. (Oh and we had to try on our gowns first!)
When we headed down to the beach i spotted what i knew was going to be my favourite spot to chill and read…the most perfect hammock hanging in the shallows of the sea.
As we arrived a week before the Easter holidays we were so lucky to experience Windjammer at a quiet time and really soak up the atmosphere, relax and unwind for the first couple of days. We checked out the beach bar which did an amazing selection of cocktails, i particularly loveeed the daquiris in the day to cool down on the beach. My boyfriend would ask for a suprise every time and they would always mix up something delicious for him.
Once we’d had a walk around the resort Tom decided to have a go at wakeboarding, he’s wakeboarded before but not for about 9 years so i was expecting him to fall off haha but he was really good and the watersports staff were super friendly and helpful.
After checking out all the watersports we could do went for a cocktail in Jammers which was soon to be our favourite restaurant. In the day it was great as you could sit and eat/drink in there so long as you had a cover up on and you had the option to sit inside our out on the decking on the beach. My favourite spot was on the decking and the best cocktail was the ‘nice weather’.
After a chilled day we found out it was the manager’s drinks which meant complimentary drinks, food & entertainment on the beach. As we were already on the beach and it was close to happy hour we thought we might as well get involved. The canapes were so delicious and the rum punches were flowing so we spent a couple of hours on the beach watching the sunset and the insanely talented local limbo dancers before heading back to the villa.
Once we got back to the villa the plan was to quickly get showered and then head down for dinner but the pool just looked so tempting so we had a quick dip.
