Read More]]> We pride ourselves in being a beautiful boutique resort for an elopement or escape, with dreamlike scenery and authentic and delicious Saint Lucian cuisine paired with our award-winning wine list.

However, Ti Kaye Resort & Spa is more than that. We’re not just a picturesque vacation getaway, where you can eat and drink to your own decadent delight – though that is an option – we’re also a peaceful haven of rest and relaxation perched atop a cliff overlooking Anse Cochon. Kai Koko Spa is here to massage your troubles away, and if you’re looking to balance some mind and body outdoors watching the sun rise, we also offer another of our favourite activities: yoga.

Our wonderful yoga instructor, Monetta Wilson, is here to help strengthen your body and mind every Monday, Friday, and Sunday morning at 7:30am on Anse Cochon Beach, as well as on Wednesday afternoons at 4:30pm. Classes are $16.50 per person.

Morning yoga sessions as the sun rises are an essential part of the Ti Kaye experience. Practitioners of all levels are welcome.

We are pleased to announce that Kai Manje Restaurant at Ti Kaye Resort & Spa has just received Wine Spectator’s prestigious Best of Award of Excellence for the second year in a row!

Big thanks to our Food & Beverage Director and General Manager Sarah Watts, who oversees the wine selection along with Restaurant Manager Kim Williams and Wine Waiter Keygan James.

“Two years in a row! This is just fabulous,” says Watts. “Wine and food is such an important passion of ours and it is wonderful for our team to receive this recognition. Sustainability is integral to the day-to-day function of Ti Kaye.”

Sustainable food initiatives at Ti Kaye Resort & Spa are the product of tireless work from Executive Chef Denis Jaricot along with Operations Manager Cheryl François, who work to bring local ingredients to the Kai Manje menu whenever possible.

“We work with local farmers and supplies to ensure we infuse as many Saint Lucian ingredients into our menu as possible,” explains Watts. “This includes locally-grown chocolate, all our herbs, and some of our fruits grown in the Ti Kaye Gardens.”

Following this latest accolade, the Kai Manje team will be introducing a variety of new food and beverage initiatives including a Rum Tasting Menu featuring 40 aged rums from throughout the Caribbean, evolving Seven Course Creole Tasting Menus, and a new Wine & Chocolate Tasting Menu to celebrate Chocolate Heritage month in August using locally-sourced Saint Lucian chocolate.

Since 1981 Wine Spectator has been honouring restaurants featuring extraordinary wine programs. The last four years have seen Kai Manje Restaurant rising in the ranks of the Caribbean’s best restaurants, earning Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence in 2013 and 2014.

2015 saw Kai Manje reaching even greater heights by earning Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence, further highlighting Ti Kaye Resort’s commitment to showcasing an increasing breadth of wines, providing options from a greater variety of winegrowing regions and delivering a superior presentation to guests.

The 2016 Best of Award of Excellence is a testament to the team’s dedication, cementing Ti Kaye Resort & Spa’s reputation as a vacation destination for food & wine lovers. Kai Manje is amongst only a handful of restaurants in the entire Caribbean to achieve this level of award, and the only one in Saint Lucia.

It’s another amazing milestone for Kai Manje and Ti Kaye, and we couldn’t be more proud!

Celebrating 15 Years of Ti Kaye http://www.tikaye.com/blog/celebrating-fifteen-years-of-ti-kaye/ http://www.tikaye.com/blog/celebrating-fifteen-years-of-ti-kaye/#respond Mon, 02 May 2016 20:06:18 +0000 http://www.tikaye.com/?p=3893

Read More]]> Can you believe it has been 15 years since Ti Kaye Resort & Spa opened? Wow! As they say, time really does fly when you’re having fun 🙂

When we set out a decade and a half ago to make a spectacular and sustainable slice of paradise here on Saint Lucia, we always hoped our dream would endure. It feels fantastic to look back at what we have achieved together in the years since we opened, to remember the challenges and obstacles we have overcome.

We dug our own well and built our own sustainable water processing facility – our very own Ti Kaye Water!

We still remember building our award-winning wine cellar, selecting our favourite bottles and building the best wine list in the Caribbean.

And of course, so many amazing people have come and gone through our doors.

Even now we continue to grow, enhancing our recycling facilities over the last few weeks.

We feel blessed to have made it this far, so we have decided to take the entire month of May to celebrate #15YearsofTiKaye!

Stay tuned for updates on specials and surprises we have in store.

We are so thankful for all of you. Check out our gallery of vintage Ti Kaye photos below 🙂

Ti Kaye partners up with Our Planet http://www.tikaye.com/blog/ti-kaye-partners-up-with-our-planet/ http://www.tikaye.com/blog/ti-kaye-partners-up-with-our-planet/#respond Sun, 21 Feb 2016 13:33:15 +0000 http://www.tikaye.com/?p=3764

Read More]]> Ti Kaye, with support from Our Planet has kicked off the Ti Kaye Hotel Recycling Initiative which is the first of its kind in Saint Lucia. Working with a local recycling company, up to 80% of the waste from major hotels in Saint Lucia, which previously went to landfill, will now be collected and exported for recycling in other countries. A meeting organised by Ti Kaye between the recycler and other environmentally conscious hotels was hosted by Windjammer Landings in late January and the recycler is now visiting each hotel from the meeting individually to advise on their waste separation processes. Collection of recyclable materials such as cardboard, paper, aluminium and other metals as well as plastics is expected to begin in March 2016 and will result in significantly less waste being directed to the already overloaded landfill facility. Ti Kaye already turns organic waste from the kitchens into plant compost and is looking at giving food waste to local pig farmers.

No-one wants to see plastic water bottles lying beside the roads or floating in the reefs, especially on an island as beautiful as Saint Lucia. This is why Ti Kaye is working with Our Planet to make the passing of a “bottle bill” a priority for the Saint Lucian government. This bill (locally called the “Returnable containers bill”) will put a value on plastic bottles brought in for recycling and make bottle distributors more accountable for the collection of used bottles. A similar bill introduced in Barbados has resulted in the return of around 90% of plastic bottles sold but the Saint Lucian bill has languished at the drafting stage for many years. Ti Kaye has enlisted the support of the SLHTA as one of their actions for their “year of the environment” announced in January 2016 and hopes that with the support of other members of the hotel and tourism industry we can finally control this “plastic plague”.

Ti Kaye beach clean-up campaign gathers momentum http://www.tikaye.com/blog/ti-kaye-beach-clean-up-campaign-gathers-momentum/ http://www.tikaye.com/blog/ti-kaye-beach-clean-up-campaign-gathers-momentum/#respond Fri, 19 Feb 2016 16:45:41 +0000 http://www.tikaye.com/?p=3746

Read More]]> Ti Kaye monthly beach clean-up campaign continues to build momentum as their employees remain committed in keeping their community clean for their families and visitors alike to enjoy.  The beach clean-up this month extended far beyond the perimeters of just Anse Cochon beach – one of the popular spots for diving and snorkeling on Saint Lucia’s beautiful west coast and also a well protected marine reserve area.  The clean-up committee directed their focus on areas which

"Many hands make light work"

“Many hands make light work”

sometimes get neglected due to distance and lack of man power.  The determination of a few volunteers went a long way as eight garbage bags filled with disposable waste consisting of mainly plastic items were collected along the access road to Ti Kaye resort.  This was a challenge that was conquered on Thursday February 18th, 2016 with a total of eight volunteers. The team displayed a level of togetherness that illustrated “many hands make light work”.  Ti Kaye has enlisted the support of the SLHTA as one of their actions for their “year of the environment” announced in January 2016 and hopes that with the support of other members of the hotel and tourism industry we can finally control this “plastic plague”.
