Ti Kaye Village is a very unique and special place. It is in a remote area but it is very beautiful and clean. I also felt safe there. The resort is small; there are only about 33 rooms. Every room and building in the resort has a caribbean sea view. I enjoyed spending time on our front porch swinging in the hammock and gazing at the amazing view. The staff at Ti Kaye are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful time. I liked how many remembered our names. We did quite a few tours that the resort offered. The best times to book are on the days that were discounted. I recommend the canopy zip lining tour, the North Shore tour, and snorkeling beneath the Pitons. There is a very nice beach that is a public beach. There were quite a few boats that pulled up with people to snorkel there. I don't blame them for coming to that beach though; there is very good snorkeling there. We also took one of the resort kayaks and paddled along the coast one afternoon. That was fun and I wished we had more time to do it again and bring a picnic with us. There are only two places to eat at Ti Kaye. The beach restaurant had really good food (burgers, salads, sandwiches). The main restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. For dinner they have a select number of main courses which was hard on my picky eater husband but everything we ate was absolutely delicious and I tried some new things (banana chicken, spicy pepper pot). Wednesday night there was a manager's cocktail hour followed by a caribbean buffet which was really good too. There are no other restaurants that are close to the resort. You would have to get a taxi or have a rental car to drive to the next town. Another thing I recommend is having a spa treatment. I got a Ti Kaye massage and loved it! Some recommendations I have for people going to Ti Kaye: 1) Bring bug spray. No matter where you go on the island there will be mosquitos. 2) Land in the Castries airport (St Lucia Vigie). It is 40 min from the resort vs 90 min from the other airport. 3) There are no tvs in the room. Bring books to catch up on or bring a portable DVD player to watch movies. They do have an IPOD dock station you can listen to your music on. Also the lobby has Wi-Fi to access with your IPAD or laptop. 4) If you are feeling adventurous then rent a car. We rented a car and had no trouble on Grand Cayman Island. St Lucia is another story. There are no street signs in St Lucia and sometimes people don't give you very good directions (we were told to continue down the road but they forgot to mention which way to turn when we came to a fork in the road). It took us almost two hours to get to the resort after we landed on the island when it should have taken 40 min. Plus the roads are windy, there are a lot of hills, and some of the roads aren't well maintained. Once we saw the Ti Kaye sign it was another mile of driving down a mostly gravel one lane drive way before getting to the resort. After taking the North Shore tour our guide pointed out the way to get back to Castries and the airport so we felt comfortable venturing out on our own to see things. We probably used the car only three times out of the seven days we were there. There are lots of places to stay if you visit St Lucia, but Ti Kaye is one of the most unique and beautiful places to stay at. If you are looking for relaxation and tranquility I highly recommend it. I hope to return someday.
