Listen to the Sweet Sound of Savings in St. Lucia

Posted March 18, 2009 by Kate Hamman

Stlucia-io-mtnssea Known as a tropical escape filled with the sounds of jazz and calypso, St. Lucia moves to the beat of its own drum. Here, you can join the rhythm of a street party, add spice to your life with international dishes, and sleep in a suite worth singing about.

Friday night 'Jump Up' at Gros Islet: If you're in St. Lucia for the weekend, you definitely don't want to miss this party. Every Friday night during the year, this small fishing village transforms itself into one of the most happening spots on the island. Roads are closed to vehicles, and the streets overflow with makeshift grills, rum cocktails, and live music. People drink and dance the night away to the sounds of calypso, and a Mardi Gras-style atmosphere emerges. It's free to jump up and enjoy yourself, but food and drink costs extra.

Razmataz: Just as the name suggests, Razmataz will dazzle your senses. Enter the Colonial gingerbread-style building for Indian dishes made with spices straight from India. The menu tantalizes with shrimp, chicken, and fish tandoori, while Balti specials such as Biryani, a rice dish with cashews and raisins, entice locals and visitors alike.

Harmony Suites: Nestled next to the ocean and only 200 yards from Reduit Beach on Rodney Bay, Harmony Suites invites you to experience the true meaning of a tropical getaway. The adult-only suites capture the feel of St. Lucia with striking pastel colors, private balconies, and rattan furniture. Here, you can relax in the gardens listening to the serene sounds of a fountain, swim in the freshwater swimming pool, or make yourself at home on the white sandy beach. Suites start at $140 per night, and come equipped with fridges, electric kettles, coffee makers, and wireless Internet.
