My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon at Ti Kaye (6 nights) from March 19 - 25. The resort was exactly what I had read it would be. The majority of the staff is very warm and friendly. They do treat you as though you are part of the family. I particulary enjoyed the service of Theresa, Gus, George, Pilgrim, Sandy, Jessica and many more I could mention.
The resort is not a luxury resort, but for some reason you feel as though it is. I think it has so much to do with the staff and the personal attention you receive.
We did the fish fry on Friday in Anse La Raye and when we wanted to stay later, Gus stayed with us until we were ready to leave. The food was good and it was a lot of fun.
I am a bit confused as to why some people complain so much about the boats coming in to snorkel as I did not find them to be bothersome at all and we spent every day on the beach. It was never crowded. The visitors do not use the umbrellas nor the beach chairs provided by Ti Kaye. They do eat lunch at times at the beach bar/restaurant, but this never hindered us from getting a table or receiving good service.
Loved the beach and the vendors are respectful when you don't want to buy anything, they just appreciate it if you look.
We rented a jeep one day and drove around the island with a couple that we met from Philadelphia who were married the same day as us and it was perfectly safe. Hi Beth and Tommy!
We went to the Botanical Gardens and up to Castries for shopping.
We did find the food to be very good at Ti Kaye although the time between meals was sometimes slower than we were used to, but then again...who is in a rush on vacation? The drinks were very good especially the Ti Kaye Knockout and the BBC. Pilgrim definitely took care of us at the bar.
We took a water taxi at night to Rainforest Hideaway in Marigot Bay and found the food to be very good as well as the service. Taking a taxi by sea in complete darkness was definitely an experience I will never forget. I could see so many stars and glowing fish in the water. It was terrific.
We snorkeled off the beach at Ti Kaye and it was fun. There were a lot of fish and other sea life. I would highly suggest going to Anse Chastanet to the Marine Park Reserve to snorkel, there was much more sea life to be seen.
Stayed in Cottage G (Gwiyen) and our view was fabulous. We had the plunge pool, but it is not necessary, just a luxury. Loved the hammock and outdoor shower. It is amazing to take a shower outdoor and to be able to view the sea at the same time.
We also kayaked from Ti Kaye to a private beach. It was a wonderful experience. Not too far down the beach from the resort you can find a few beaches where you are all alone.
We will definitely go back to Ti Kaye in a few years. It really was a simple paradise that we thoroughly enjoyed.
