Three St. Lucia Treasures for your next Caribbean Retreat

St. Lucia is a small, lush, tropical gem in the Caribbean. Its natural beauty, dramatic coastal peaks, and magnificent rainforests make St. Lucia a must see destination for the island lover. Here are our top picks for unique, boutique hotels on this breathtaking island.

The Boucan

In the midst of the Cocoa groves, on the island of St. Lucia lies a place where luxury, style and chocolate come together. The Rabot Estate cocoa plantation was revived in 2006 and a new era of St. Lucia chocolate making came to be. In 2012, the boutique hotel was erected on the estate in an effort to give customers a unique and elegant experience that celebrates the agricultural and hedonistic sides of cocoa.

The lodges at Boucan are positioned to catch the St. Lucian breeze, adorned with luxury furnishings, and fabulous views of the Piton Mountains. For the guest looking for relaxation, unwind at the Cocoa Juvenate Spa, which offers a wide range of spa and wellness services, or unwind at Club Boucan, complete with a 50 feet black quartz infinity pool and stunning views of the Piton Mountains directly in front. For those who want a bit of adventure, there are several ways explore your surroundings – from gentle, self-guided strolls through our cocoa groves, to more strenuous Pitons climbs and exciting sea adventures. For the foodie, the restaurant focusing on cacao cuisine, is the perfect destination. The exclusive menu uses cocoa in subtle harmony in both savory and sweet dishes. This is the ultimate destination for any chocolate lover.
