Airport Information

Hewanorra International Airport  (UVF) is located in Vieux Fort (in the south) and is approximately one and a half hours drive to our hotel.

George F. L. Charles Airport (SLU), for regional flights, is located near Castries (in the north west) and is approximately 20 minutes drive to our hotel.

Taxi’s are available outside both airports.  From UVF the cost is approx US$ 85.00 one way per vehicle and from SLU, the cost is approx US$ 25.00 one way per vehicle.

We can also recommend a particular taxi driver that we have been working with for many years and if you would like us to book him for you, please email karen@gingerlilyhotel.com with your flight details etc.

Once he is booked, a confirmation email will be sent back to you by return with his details and a meeting point.

Currency:

The local currency is Eastern Caribbean Dollars, however, US$ are widely accepted as are all major credit cards.  We have an ATM approx 10 mins walk from our hotel should you wish to obtain more currency whilst you are there.  We also offer currency exchange at the hotel.

Electricity:

Electric current is 220 volts and our sockets take 3-pin square plugs (UK standard).  Please bring an adaptor should you wish to use electronic equipment with another plug type.  Most portable items will convert from 110v for example, as they are designed to be used when travelling, however, do check the transformer on your product beforehand.
