As you approach the entrance to Arc En Ciel, you feel the wow factor before you reach the front door. The building itself is quite beautiful and designed as a series of pavilions connected by verandah. The look and feel of a traditional Caribbean plantation house oozes from every arched, shuttered window and wooden railing. Inside, you’re greeted by a large open plan lounge and dining room, full of old-world grandeur and style. The dark wood floors, rich furnishings, potted palms and ceiling fans leave you in no doubt of the luxurious holiday in store at Arc En Ciel, for up to ten guests.
The tropical dreams continue in the five bedroom suites. All delightfully decorated, with three on the first floor and two on the ground floor, the rooms feature both ceiling fans and air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms with bath and shower, entertainment systems and private sun decks for your very own, personal sunset and sunrise moments. The master suite boasts incredible views of Petit Piton, especially from the bath tub or shower, where your vista is uninterrupted, thanks to a floor to ceiling window wall. You also have a private swimming pool and sun deck, surrounded by an enclosed garden. How utterly indulgent! Bedrooms two and three are doubles, whilst rooms four and five feature two single beds and open directly out onto the main pool deck.
Outside, leading from your lounge area, you can opt to dine al fresco on your extensive terrace. From here, in addition to being served delicious dinners by your resident Chef, you can feast your eyes on one of the most spectacular views in Saint Lucia; the sparkling Caribbean Sea and World Heritage Site of The Pitons.
Move down another level in Arc En Ciel’s incredible gardens, and discover even more entertainment terraces, a covered patio and the fabulous private swimming pool. Ornamented with viewing deck, sumptuous sun beds, lush tropical plants, a bridge, cave, waterfall and infinity edge, you’ll feel like you’ve arrived in paradise. From this gorgeous pool area, the views out to sea are divine, as is the shade from the palm trees and covered terraces. Lawned areas lead off towards beautifully tended gardens and you also have a casual dining terrace, bar and television room. Privacy, relaxation, tranquillity and good times are assured.
Despite the seclusion of Arc En Ciel’s opulent location, you’re wonderfully close to Sugar Beach and the charming town of Soufriere, making this villa a perfect base for exploring Saint Lucia’s south western corner.
