Let us take you there
Arriving at Cosmos St Lucia is a breathtaking experience. Step from the sky bridge onto the arrivals terrace with its calming water feature and hillside forest view. Peaceful as it is, your instinct will be to walk on, through the modernist open-air villa and out onto the sun terrace. Look out across the infinity pool to the magnificent Piton mountains set against the Caribbean sea and expansive sky. Breathe deeply, inhale the scents of the tropical garden flowers and let the magic wash over you.
Cosmos means universal harmony. With views of mountain, sea and sky, you’re embraced by the serenity and beauty of the natural elements, and invited to come together with friends and family to mark life’s milestones. Intimate celebrations frequently hosted at Cosmos include family reunions, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and retreats – read their reviews.
The Villa design and layout offers flexibility for cultivating different moods throughout your event.

- Lounge area with uninterrupted view to the sea at west end of the Cantilever, with sofas and lounge chair seating for up to 14

In every room, at least one wall is open to stunning sea views and cooling trade winds. Teak screens with concertina doors can be closed by staff as needed (the bedrooms also feature curtains). Nautical stainless cables create a safety barrier on terraces although young children must be supervised at all times.
Furnishings are made by local craftsmen from tropical woods from sustainable forests and are decked-out with massive cushions covered in organic cotton and linen. The villa palette is primarily natural, dominated by rich golden timber beside whitewash walls and bright colour from garden blossoms, fabrics, fruit and people.
The maximum amount of guests at Cosmos events is 25 people, of which we can accommodate 16 on the property. The main Villa, Garden Studios and Lodge combined provide accommodation across seven bedrooms. Please see the Accommodation page for full details.
