How close is the resort to the beach?

Rendezvous sits on a 2-mile stretch of beachfront called Malabar Beach - probably the best beach that the island of St. Lucia has to offer. What's even more enticing is that Rendezvous is the only resort located on that stretch!

Where is the resort located?

Rendezvous is located on seven acres of lush tropical gardens on the Malabar Beach, one of the best beaches on the island. This two miles of sea and sand provides 300 yards of beachfront and is ideal for a brisk morning jog, romantic evening stroll or the avid sunbather.

The resort's northwest location puts two miles from the capital city, Castries and five minutes from the George F L Charles Airport. It is one hour and fifteen minutes from the Hewanorra International Airport in View Fort, which is in the southern part of the island.

How long has the hotel been in existence?

The site of the resort was once a vast coconut estate where over forty years ago a St. Lucian planter built his family home. Shortly thereafter the house was extended to include twenty bedrooms catering to the transient commercial traveller. It was then called the Malabar Beach Hotel. Over the years, the hotel grew and in 1983 the family took a franchise with the Couples chain of resorts. The hotel then became the first all-inclusive resort on the island.
