Rendezvous is one of the world's first boutique hotel

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
