This all-inclusive, adult-only resort features classic French-Caribbean architecture set amid enchanting tropical gardens in St Lucia. Overlooking a bay of white sands and turquoise waters, Sandals Halcyon Beach boasts a tranquil and elegant setting right on a stunning beachfront with plenty of optional activities.
Situated on the beautiful island of St Lucia, Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort enjoys a prime location just outside of the capital city of Castries. You can reach the colourful central market of Castries in just over two miles – or head to Rodney Bay, the town which is known for its entertainment and recreational activity. Here you’ll find plenty of restaurants, bars and boutique shops, and two of the largest shopping malls on the entire island. Despite being located off the busy Castries-Gros Islet Highway, the resort offers peace away from the noisy traffic of the road. Hewanorra International Airport is just over 35 miles away.
The low-rise buildings and cottage-style accommodation creates an intimate feel throughout the property. All rooms feature private stone terraces or balconies with views of the gardens, pool or ocean. Rooms have an elegant feel, most with mahogany king size four-poster beds, vaulted ceilings and stone tile flooring. Standard features include air-conditioning, white bed linens, flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers and minibars stocked with wine, beer, water, soft drinks and juices.
The rooms offer three levels of service – Luxury level, Club level, and Butler level. Choose upgraded Club or Butler rooms with a tranquillity soaking tub, pool walkout access or a private plunge pool in the garden. Club-level and Butler-level rooms feature room service and minibars with additional liquors, such as scotch, vodka and rum. They also include exclusive invites to events and priority check-in with chilled towels and Champagne on arrival. If you book a superior Butler room, you’ll have access to all the Club Sandals amenities, 24-hour room service and a fully qualified butler to meet all your needs. You can personally contact your butler at your command.

Sandals Halcyon Beach is designed for adult couples and honeymooners, who crave complete relaxation. The 300-metre stretch of beach is perfect for romantic strolls or blissful sunbathing, whilst the lush landscaped gardens provide a shady oasis. You’ll find comfortable day beds and lawn chess around the manicured grounds. There are also three whirlpools and two freeform pools, both complete with swim-up bars and surrounded by lounge chairs. The resort offers poolside and beachside service, so you can feel refreshed as you relax by the water.
While there is no on-site spa at the resort, you can book an open-air massage treatment in the outdoor gazebos which overlook the ocean or make use of the spa and fitness centre at nearby Sandals Resorts. Enjoy exchange privileges with two nearby Sandals Resorts for up to an additional 21 restaurants, Red Lane Spa and a 9 and 18-hole golf course.
If you enjoy being active, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. Try diving – the hotel is a five-star PADI resort, and certified divers get up to two dives free per day – kayaking, knee boarding, wakeboarding, windsurfing, water skiing, paddle boarding and tubing. There’s also volleyball, tennis, pool, table tennis and chess. A nine-hole par 33 golf course is located at the nearby Sandals LaToc Golf Resort and Spa – a shuttle can take you here in under four miles. Green fees are complimentary, although it’s mandatory to hire a caddy at an additional charge. You can also rent golf shoes here, but trainers, track shoes or tennis shoes (all without studs) are permitted. Alternatively, visit the 18-hole golf course at Cap Estate.
The hotel hosts weekly events which include evening shows, beach parties, karaoke and piano shows. If you’ve chosen a Butler level room, you can order room service 24-hours a day, or between specific evening hours if you’re in a Club level room.
Choose from a selection of six excellent restaurants, including a beachside grill. Perhaps the most dramatic of these is Kelly's Dockside, which is located on a jetty that stretches out over the sea. Mario's features a range of Italian specialities and fine wines, whilst Bayside serves international dishes. It has an indoor and an outdoor seating area for al fresco dining. If you like Japanese cuisine, try the stylish Kimonos for Teppanyaki-style dishes or Soy sushi bar. Enjoy communal hibachi tables or head outdoors to find a romantic, lantern-lit setting.
With the exclusive Stay at One, Play at Three Exchange Programme, you can also dine at 27 other restaurants at two sister resorts and enjoy evening entertainment, too. Complimentary transfers between the resorts are included.
The dress code is mainly resort casual, which can include shorts or jeans, t-shirts or polo shirts. Swimwear must be covered, and shirts and footwear are required. For dinner, some restaurants require resort evening attire which includes dress trousers or jeans for men and, long or short sleeve dress shirts (with or without collar). Shoes or sandals should also be worn. Shorts, t-shirts, sleeveless shirts, hats, trainers, flip flops and slippers are not deemed as appropriate resort evening attire.
In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) restaurant buffets will no longer be self-service. There will be thermal temperature screening procedures in place during check-in. Sandals exchange privileges are suspended until further notice – and you will not be able to travel to, and access facilities at neighbouring Sandals properties, including the spa. Guests who have received both vaccinations at least 14 days prior to arrival will be permitted to use the exchange privileges although some restrictions will apply.
