This charming resort has been lovingly created by the owner Nick Pinnock who bought the land in 1991 and has worked tirelessly to make it into the place it is today. As you head off the main road on the rough lane down to the resort, you’ll soon forgive the bumpy ride as you arrive at this haven of peace and seclusion.
Situated in Anse Cochon, one of the best snorkeling bays in Saint Lucia, this intimate Caribbean resort is a world away from the larger resorts for which Saint Lucia is better known. The owner and managers have made a real effort to reflect Saint Lucia’s culture and heritage in the architecture and general feel of the resort, even down to small details like the Creole room names.
Enjoy the laid back atmosphere, personal service and picture postcard views, whilst staying in your own little gingerbread cottage set in the lush gardens of this unique resort.
Perfect for those who want to really feel like they’re in Saint Lucia and don’t require the endless facilities of a larger resort.

Photos of Ti Kaye Resort & Spa
33 charming rooms and gingerbread cottages line the sloping hill, offering simple, natural elegance in the midst of nature.
All have four-poster bed, private outdoor garden shower and a large balcony with double hammock.
Although there is air conditioning, the open shutters have been designed to allow the sea breeze to flow through keeping the rooms cool if preferred, and similarly Wi-Fi is available if you really need to stay in touch.
Hugging the edge of the cliff side, this pretty resort offers a really secluded location and incredible sea views.
Ti Kaye is set on the hillside overlooking a pretty bay that’s surrounded by thick rainforest. The hotel is about a mile down a track from the main road (about ten minutes' drive) and with no other resorts or houses nearby it's a beautifully secluded location. However, please note that as the bay is one of the best sites for snorkeling in Saint Lucia, it is visited by snorkel boats from other parts of the island.
The sand here is light gray due to the volcanic nature of this region and if you don’t fancy the 166 steps up or down to the beach, you can call for the hotel's shuttle to whisk you up the hill.
Food and drink
Kai Manje restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and enjoys stunning sea views. It is set near the resort’s pool and the staff are happy to serve your lunch by the pool if you like. In the evening the restaurant transforms with white table linen and softly glowing candles, making dinner a casually elegant affair.
Ti Manje is the beachside restaurant open for lunch as well as a weekly five-course seafood dinner (booking ahead for the weekly dinner is recommended as there is only limited seating). There is also a clifftop bar and an award-winning wine cellar with over 3,000 bottles. The hotel offers wine tasting sessions three evenings a week in the wine cellar as well as a fantastic five-course wine paired dinner weekly.
Ti Kaye Resort & Spa is an adult only resort and only accepts adults of 18 years and over.
Facilities and activities
There’s a small pool on the hillside with excellent views. There are also regular activities including yoga, garden walks and wine tasting sessions.
Built on the cliff edge with views over the Caribbean Sea, the Kai Koko Spa offers two treatment rooms and a Jacuzzi. The spa menu draws its inspiration from the island, and treatments and rituals use natural organic ingredients from the surrounding rainforest, lush valleys, and the island’s mineral-rich waters.
One of the island’s best snorkeling spots is located directly off the beach.
Located in a marine reserve, Anse Cochon where Ti Kaye is set, is one of the best dive spots on the island. Ti Kaye Island Divers at the resort, offers packages to suit all levels and with its own well equipped dive shop and instructors, you’ll be in safe hands if this is your first time.
The wreck of the Lesleen M is set within Anse Cochon Bay making it incredibly easy to access for divers at Ti Kaye. This wreck was purposefully sunk in 1985 to create an artificial reef. There are also two house reefs easily accessible from shore that are perfect for shore and night dives.
Environmental and social responsibility
The resort is working hard on various initiatives to improve their environmental impact, however they already have their own desalination plant, 160 solar panels and a herb garden where they grow local produce for their restaurants.
Numerous excursions can be arranged by the resort. Popular activities include horse riding, rainforest hikes, trips to Castries by water taxi and sunset cruises from Ti Kaye’s private dock.
