The U.S.-based artist and her family spent six nights at the award-wining resort, at the invitation of Dr. Desmer Destang, owner of the clinic, which is located near the resort in Rodney Bay.
Ms. Starr sought out the services of Dr. Destang, a St. Lucian-born, college qualified medical aesthetic clinician with 15 years' experience, for a personalized skin consultation, analysis and treatment. The two had first met during Dr. Destang's previous visit to New York where the doctor recommended a skin care regimen for the star, which yielded positive results.
Ms. Starr's mother, Shana Gordon, said they'd felt like they were in a tropical "home away from home" from the moment they arrived at the resort. From the daily hugs they received from "Ms. P" (resort general manager Waltrude Patrick) to Lily at the concierge desk, who arranged for a private hair stylist to come to the resort, Gordon said they couldn't have felt more welcome.
The family also raved about the Caribbean-inspired gourmet food offered at each of the restaurants on site, including Hi Tide and Seagrapes Beach Bar, and reveled in zip line, horseback riding and other experiences for which St. Lucia is famous.
Sanovnik Destang, Executive Director of Bay Gardens Resorts and brother of Dr. Destang, said: "We were thrilled to welcome Ms. Starr and her family to our beautiful island and our resort and we're looking forward to them returning in the future."
Ms. Starr and her family are already planning their next visit, hopefully for 2020 St. Lucia Carnival, and checking back into their newly discovered "home away from home".
