Rendezvous is one of the world’s first boutique hotel for couples. Nestled in seven acres of lush tropical gardens on the two mile stretch Malabar Beach, couples can experience the intimate surroundings of this elegant all-inclusive resort. Located on the north west coast of St Lucia, the resort is two miles from the Capital City Castries and George F L Charles Airport (also known as Vigie SLU) and one hour and fifteen minutes from Hewanorra International Airport (UVF).
The site of the resort was once a vast coconut estate where over thirty years ago a St Lucian Planter by the name of Dennis Barnard built his family home on Malabar Beach. Shortly there afterwards the house was extended to include twenty bedrooms catering to the transient commercial traveler. It was then called the Malabar Beach Hotel. Over the years the hotel grew and in August 1983 the Barnard family took out a franchise and the Malabar Beach Hotel become Couples St Lucia an all-inclusive for holidaymakers. In April 1993 the Couples franchise ended and the resort reverted to the direct leader- ship of Craig Barnard and Rendezvous, The Escape for Romantics was born.
