A necessary part of travel planning is choosing a place that has great food. Many resorts offer all inclusive plans, so you don’t have to worry about extra fees- or even leaving the resort!
A lot of all inclusive resorts are on large complexes that can be difficult to navigate, especially when it comes to dinner. Some restaurants still require reservations, even though they are on site.
I prefer boutique resorts because they are much cozier than the commercial resorts. Some are family owned, which means more personalized service and better food!
We stayed at Ti Kaye Resort & Spa in St. Lucia, and it was totally worth it. If you book direct, you can choose a meal plan. I recommend the soft inclusive, which covers your three meals plus drinks. You may have to pay a little extra for premium items, but we found that is was still the best value.
Every night of the week is a different menu. Some of our favorite menu items included the banana pancakes, teriyaki steak wrap at the beach bar, fresh fish for dinner, and the creme brûlée for dessert. We also noticed how fresh the salads were, and there is a garden on site we saw a staff bringing in fresh vegetables from.
There are other boutique resorts like this on the island, but the food here is amazing. They even have their own wine cellar, which you can book for a wine tasting.
