From the Caribbean to California, Oregon, and Washington, find 6 KindHotels that are lovingly women-owned or women-led to support during Women’s History Month and beyond. 

Stonefield Villa Resort, Saint Lucia

Stonefield Villa Resort

Perched high above the Caribbean Sea, nestled into 26 acres of lush rainforest on Saint Lucia’s picturesque west coast, is Stonefield Villa Resort. And when we say picturesque, we mean landmark and Instagram superstar Petit Piton is quite literally just outside your terrace doors. Just down the hillside lie pristine, sugary sand beaches and the charming town of Soufriere is a stone’s throw away. With its breathtaking views and connection to nature, Stonefield Resort is truly a Kind Traveler’s paradise. 

Women-Owned & Women-Led: For the sole owner, Anista Brown, female entrepreneurism runs in her blood. Formerly a 26-acre cocoa plantation, Stonefield Villa Resort served as Brown's childhood home. But her family transformed it into a complete resort. Brown runs the day-to-day operations, while her daughter manages sales and marketing.
