During our day trip in St. Lucia we had the chance to spend the day at Almond Morgan Bay Resort in St. Lucia. An all-inclusive resort nestled in a private cove about 15 minute drive from the capitol, Castries.
*Due to Hurricane Irene quite a bit of seaweed had washed ashore, but the staff was quick to start cleaning up the beach!
I had the Wahoo Ceviche. It was flavorful and I enjoyed the honeydew melon that accompanied it. I would have never thought to eat fish with mellon. It was delicious!!! My second course was a flavorful pureed zucchini soup. Although it was hot out I could always eat a bowl of soup. For my main course I chose the Thai Green Curry and Coconut Vegetables with Basmati rice. The curry was out of this world amazing, and although by my main course I was full, I couldn’t stop eating this dish.
I asked him about local ingredients, recipe development, and what dining options the resort has to offer. *I apologize in advance for the poor sound quality. We were in the tropics and on vacation… the last thing I was thinking of is sound quality!
After my interview with the chef and the tour of the kitchen including the onsite bakery (yep that’s right they have their own bakery where they start preparing over 30 danishes for breakfast at 4 am)! My husband and I decided to end our visit with a catamaran sail. Here is a view from the catamaran of part of the resort.
I hope if you are ever visiting St. Lucia you’ll stay with Almond Morgan Bay or at least visit it for the day like we did! I hope you enjoyed my week long virtual vacation series! I encourage you to follow them on Facebook and Twitter, too!
