This New Saint Lucia Resort Should Be at the Top of Your Post-Covid Bucket List

A Beach Residence at Cabot Saint Lucia

Ten months of quarantining has left us daydreaming about our first trip post-Covid. Add to the list: Cabot Saint Lucia, a magnificent resort community in development on the northern tip of Saint Lucia, whose picture-perfect beaches and lush rainforests are only a five-hour flight from Houston.

The boutique oceanfront resort will offer the very best in amenities, including three restaurants, a world-class spa, wellness center and more. Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw have designed Cabot's golf course on 1.5 miles of pristine coastline, into which the stunning resort naturally blends in. London-based Studio RHE is leading the design process and will be using sustainably sourced local materials and the latest environmentally-aware thinking to create understated architecture with a strong sense of place that is very much of today, yet also distinctly Saint Lucian. Influenced by the site, designs will embrace coastal, secluded and rustic elements.

Real estate is currently available for purchase with phase 1 lots priced from $750,000 to $2.6 million. Golf holes at Cabot Point will be able for preview play soon, while the full course and suite of amenities are set to open in 2022. The hotel is slated for 2023.

“I WISH I came here sooner to experience this amazing city,” says advanced sommelier Rachel Van Til of her move to Houston just one year before the pandemic lockdown. When Covid appeared in 2020, along with layoffs and closings, it led to a career swerve for Van Til, a working mom who was a sommelier at Pappas Steakhouse. She took over the wine program at The Clubs at Houston Oaks, a posh (initiation fees can range into the six figures) members-only club northwest of the city with 10 lodges, 17 lakes, 900 acres and six dining options. Speaking of lots of good food and vino, the club’s 2022 Wine and Food Classic is this February 12 — it’s a great chance to taste hundreds of wines from around the world and learn about them from winemakers and professionals. “It’s our largest event of the year and it’s open to the public.” In our Q&A, Rachel dishes on her favorite date night, best wines to try this year and her brush with the me-too movement!

HOUSTON IS HOME to hundreds of steakhouses, but the Museum District has been pretty barren of big beef — until now.
