One of the perks of picking an all-inclusive resort on St. Lucia is that the island is so new to the phenomenon of all-inclusive resorts that it offers them in fine-tuned perfection. At the same time, St. Lucia is not so overrun by all-inclusives you can't get away from their warmly-calculated pampering when you want to.

There are only a handful all-inclusive resorts on St. Lucia and, with the notable exceptions of the Coconut Bay in Vieux Fort and the The Jalousie Plantation in Soufrière, all are located at the northwest end of the island, scattered between the urban center of the Castries and its rural neighbor Gros Islet. Some of these resorts are specialized: Whether couples only or a home to restorative body treatments and physical conditioning, you may find something a little out of the ordinary that suits you. However, most resorts are family-friendly with package variations for couples, singles, and seniors.

While prices may seem high, travelers should take cost of living in St. Lucia into account. Food, lodging, entertainment, and transportation are usually included in such resorts, and it can be difficult to come by a better deal.

There is little these resorts do not offer. Many have multiple in-house restaurants ranging from fine dining with elegant and sophisticated surroundings to informal seafood buffets awash in tropical regalia. In addition to the standard entertainments of tennis, volleyball, guided tours, and horse-back riding; many all-inclusive resorts also offer 18-hole golf courses, sailing lessons, deep-sea fishing excursions, water parks for the kids, swim-up bars for the adults, and pung pools bubbling with volcanic mineral water pumped fresh from the Pitons for those who simply want to feel good.

However, there are those who argue that staying at an all-inclusive resort can take much of the fun out of exploring a new country. After all, resorts with all meals and activities included make it more expensive to strike out on your own and explore a local restaurant or take a tour on your own. This also can be seen as encouragement to stay on-site, something many travelers want to avoid.

Still, when it comes to variety, the amazing choice of activities at St. Lucia's all-inclusive resorts will give you more to desire than you will ever have time to enjoy.
