  • Seven nights at 5* Rendezvous in Saint Lucia
  • All inclusive
  • Stay in a Luxury Beachfront Room
  • Return flights from the UK with British Airways
  • Group transfers

Rendezvous is one of the most romantic hotels in the Caribbean and a hotspot for honeymoons.

Pool-At-Rendezvous-St-Lucia

This all-inclusive retreat includes experiences, from the golf clinic, dance classes and sailing to professional tennis lessons, archery and bike tours. You also get a free dive each day (excluding Sundays) for PADI-certified divers or a try-dive for beginners.

Rendezvous-Malabar-Beach

The hotel sits on one of Saint Lucia’s longest beaches and is close to the capital of Castries, though hidden away among exotic gardens. Spend beautiful days relaxing on a daybed by the lazy river together, later tasting local dishes such as shellfish bisque and herb-crusted red snapper by candlelight at the Trysting Place, where a resident guitarist will add to the romantic ambience. Tuck into the catch-of-the-day at The Terrace or pull up a driftwood chair at Malabar, an à la carte restaurant on the beach that sits under a giant sail.

Terrace-at-Night-Rendezvous

Regular theme nights include the popular beach barbecue and, for a change of scenery, you can dine at sister hotel, The BodyHoliday, too. When the stars glisten overhead, chill out in one of the three bars – the lively Champagne Bar offers nightly tastings.

In your Luxury Beachfront Room, flop onto the comfy hammock on your balcony or terrace, with the lapping ocean as your backdrop, and enjoy peaceful sleeps in your king-size four-poster bed.

Restaurants & bars

A fantastic selection of fresh fruit and hot and cold dishes are available at the breakfast buffet at the Terrace Restaurant which offers indoor and outdoor seating and also serves a buffet lunch. In the evening, enjoy dinner by candlelight accompanied by the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. The catch-of-the-day and a superb selection of international and local dishes are available. Regular themed nights include a weekly beach barbecue, Caribbean, carvery and Italian.

Dress up for dinner at The Trysting Place – a fine dining restaurant open six nights a week that offers an exquisite à la carte menu of French and Caribbean cuisine served on fine bone china with crystal glasses and damask linens. The romantic ambience is enhanced by the resident guitarist.

Pull up a driftwood chair and sink your toes in the sand at the new Malabar Beach Club which sits under a giant sail and serves light dishes with ingredients from the local market.

Chefs at both restaurants can cater for guests with food allergies. Swim up to the Pool Bar for refreshing drinks during the day and relax in rattan sofas overlooking the ocean at the laid back Terrace Bar which is a popular spot for coffee, afternoon tea and cocktails.

If you’re not ready to end your evening after dinner then head to the lively Champagne Bar which offers nightly tastings and stays open until the last guest leaves.

There are exquisite beaches around the island, where you can spend lazy days paddling in the clear waters and sunbathing on pure white sand; or you could give diving a go. The resort’s PADI courses are led by helpful instructors who will select the dive site based on your skill level, so if you’re new to diving you can relax knowing you’re in safe hands. You can also join a twice-weekly snorkelling trip on the spectacular house reef, where you’ll be in with a chance of spotting rays and turtles.Biyadhoo-Maldives-Beach

We’re giving you a free upgrade to all inclusive with this offer, so you can feast on flavoursome Maldivian dishes and cuisine from around the world at Biyadhoo’s Palm restaurant, at no extra cost. For an icy drink and evening entertainment, head to the al fresco Coconut Bar, where the thatched roof and sandy floor create a super relaxed feel.

Biyadhoo-MaldivesYour Standard Room has a minimalist style and is just steps from the water’s edge, so it’s a fantastic base to make the most of your time on the beach.

Restaurants & bars

Palm is Biyadhoo’s air-conditioned restaurant. It offers buffets and set menus with international cuisine. Each Friday, there’s a traditional Maldivian-themed buffet. The open-air Coconut Bar has a thatched roof and sand floor and is the hub of the island. In the evenings, it’s the place to be for catching up over drinks and snacks.

The diving at Biyadhoo is a real highlight. The Dive Ocean PADI 5 Star Gold Palm Resort is a focal point of the island, situated next to the main jetty, and its instructors are incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable.
