Fronting a palm-fringed beach in north-west St Lucia, the St James's Club Morgan Bay by Elite is a laidback and family-friendly all-inclusive resort with a kids' club, a spa, four pools, six themed restaurants and an equal number of bars. Throughout your stay, you can enjoy attentive service, scheduled daily activities, complimentary water sports and live evening entertainment. Book a tennis lesson, unwind on the beach and dine al fresco beside the Caribbean Sea.
St James's Club Morgan Bay sits on the white sandy shores of Choc Bay in the north of St Lucia. The resort enjoys a secluded beachfront setting, not far from some of the island’s top attractions. The resort is set back from a main road that runs to the island’s capital, Castries, around three miles away. Rodney Bay is around five miles to the north – offering abundant restaurants, bars and shops – and you can take advantage of preferred rates at the Cap Estate Golf Course, around six miles from the resort. Hewanorra International Airport is in the south-east, roughly 36 miles from the property.
The air-conditioned accommodation is set within lush tropical gardens or on the verdant hillside, enjoying a private balcony or terrace with either ocean, pool or garden views. Decorated in a Caribbean style, they all feature tiled floors, island-themed artwork and wood or rattan furnishings. The hillside rooms and suites lie closest to the adult-pool and are the only ones to include complimentary Wi-Fi. This includes Deluxe Ocean View Rooms with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea, as well as more spacious One-Bedroom Suites with separate bedroom and living areas.

The resort boasts six diverse dining venues. The Palms Restaurant serves buffet-style meals in a tropical garden setting, while Bambou offers al fresco dining right beside the beach. Head to the rustic Tree Tops for made-to-order pizza and creative pasta dishes, or simply feast on snacks from the poolside Plum Tree Grill. If you’re on the beach, you can grab a burger or beef brisket sandwich from The BBQ Station. In the evenings, you can savour seafood specialities at the atmospheric Morgan’s Pier Restaurant, which extends out into the sea, or you can dine on French-Creole cuisine at the upmarket Le Jardin.

You can wear casual clothing and beachwear for breakfast and lunch.
