Since we only have two rooms left for Unplugged in Paradise, our live music performance event with Ed Roland of Collective Soul held April 26-29, we thought now would be a good time to remind those would-be solo travelers why St. Lucia is a great place to escape, even without any travel buddies.
If you’re not already convinced a once-in-a-lifetime weekend filled with live acoustic performances from Ed Roland is worth considering taking the solo travel leap, we came up with a few other reasons (including our top activity suggestions for single guests) that will make it easy to book that solo trip of your dreams.
See You At Cellar Maison
In between rocking out at Ed’s three performances throughout the weekend, we think the best way to relax and refuel is with a wine pairing dinner. With a menu specially curated by our onsite sommelier and executive chef, these events welcome up to 12 people and are a great way for solo travelers to meet new friends while sampling a selection of more than 2,000 wines and spirits held inside our onsite cellar.
2. Seize the Surf at Smuggler’s Cove
Just steps from your accommodations, our secluded beach area is referred to by the locals as Smuggler’s Cove. Enjoy a beachside breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three, if you’re into long beach days) at Cap Maison’s beach bar and grill, The Naked Fisherman, and enjoy access to all the watersports your heart desires. Cap Maison guests receive complimentary access to paddle boards, kayaks, hobie cats and snorkel gear. (Feeling more daring, you solo-travel superstar? Ask the bartenders for some Rocket Fuel.)
3. Take a Hike up Gros Piton
A quick ride from the resort and good hiking shoes is all you’ll need to get the best views of St. Lucia from Gros Piton, one of St. Lucia’s two volcanic mountains that are the hallmark of the island’s western coast. Join along with a hiking group or have Concierge arrange solo transportation if you’re looking for a more quiet, zen-like hike — while it’s not an easy trek, it’s certainly worth the view. And isn’t that pretty much what solo travel is all about?
We hope these activities have inspired you to book your solo stay and come hang with us (and Ed!). For booking info follow the instructions on the Unplugged in Paradise page. See you soon in St. Lucia ?
