Balenbouche, St Lucia Guest House & Heritage Site

Balenbouche is a St Lucia Guest house situated on a beautiful 70 acre heritage site and organic farm adjoining several secluded beaches. The 75 acre property includes the historic plantation house and gardens, 18th century sugar mill, fruit orchards, pastures, lily ponds and nature trails. We are located in the South of St Lucia, between Laborie and Choiseul, 20 minutes from the International airport and 30 minutes from the town of Soufriere. Our private one and two bedroom St Lucia cottages are created from historic structures and built using a tropical, traditional, open style. We are primarily a st lucia bed and breakfast, but also offer meals by reservation. The Balenbouche grounds are a popular venue for weddings and retreats. Our family has owned and managed the property for over 50 years, gradually transforming it from a struggling plantation to an authentic tourist attraction and st lucia eco resort.

Your lifestyle inspires us to simplify and lead lives more respectful of the earth.” (Robert and Jill, MA)
