Luxury Soufrière Holidays

The beating heart of St Lucia


Holidays in Soufrière place you at the heart of St Lucia’s best natural attractions. The Pitons - two volcanic spires that rise into the sky – provide a staggering backdrop, along with the surrounding ocean and rainforest. Soufrière is a laid back town, making it the perfect base for a Caribbean holiday with your partner, family or by yourself.

Soufrière translates to “sulphur” in French, so it should come as no surprise to learn that the town is surrounded by mineral baths and hot springs. Head to Sulphur Spring, a beautiful area known for its springs, or visit the Diamond Botanical Gardens, where you’ll find exotic botanical gardens and cascading waterfalls. Those who enjoy keeping active should hire a bicycle and pedal the trails through the old sugar plantation at Anse Mamin.

It wouldn’t be a classic Caribbean getaway without the beach. We recommend the stunning Anse Chastanet Beach; it’s just 30 minutes away from the town and treats its visitors to views of vibrant green rainforest, white sands and turquoise waters. Anse Chastanet also offers fabulous snorkelling and scuba diving off its shores. Its coral reef is recognised as one of the best dive locations in the Caribbean.

Soufrière promises an awe inspiring escape for those who are drawn to natural beauty. Immerse yourself in the relaxed atmosphere of the town, where you’ll find a colourful seafront and stunning colonial architecture, as well as a fabulous dining scene to enjoy. There’s no shortage of things to do in Soufrière; enjoy the hot springs, botanical gardens and coral reefs of the area.

Hotels in Soufrière often treat guests to stunning natural views and a relaxed, Caribbean atmosphere. Here at Sovereign, we recommend Ladera Resort, which offers beautiful views across to the Pitons and Soufrière’s azure waters. Nestled on a ridge, the hotel is built using eco friendly materials and each suite boasts an open wall which leads onto a private pool. Exclusive to adults, this is the perfect location for a romantic getaway or honeymoon.

Alternatively, opt to stay at Sugar Beach A Viceroy Resort, which is located right on the beach and offers world class views of the Pitons. This hotel is perfect for those looking to truly indulge, with a treetop spa where a range of relaxing facial, body and massage treatments are available.
