This hotel is delightful in all ways. The food is fantastic, unique, and perfectly proportioned; staff are incredible; the surroundings are relaxing and beautiful. I stayed in a Lodge, and it was incredibly comfortable and everything I could have hoped for. I had the 'Everything Straight Up' package, which is a wonderful way to get everything covered and not have... More

These are some of the things we loved about our stay: 1. If you don't want to splurge on the luxury lodge, ask for lodge #3 with a direct view of petit piton. The other basic lodges have more obstructed views of the piton if any. 2. Loved the rain shower head with strong pressure. 3. The hotel is very... More

Puts a big smile on our faces when all the little things are appreciated! We have put a lot of effort into mosquito reduction, including intelligent landscaping that takes away the habit preferred by Mosquitos. More

Wow..... We just returned from Boucan by Hotel Chocolat after a weeks holiday built on the enchanting Rabot estate which has been steeped in local history since 1745. Not sure where to start as we were so overwhelmed by our holiday experience and in love with the hotel. I strongly recommend a visit to this calm boutique oasis of tranquility... More

If you're looking for instant relaxation in a beautiful setting this is the place to go. You feel compelled to turn your phone's data setting to "off" the second you walk in. Must-do's: Snorkelling trip up the coast and between the Pitons; the restaurant's inventive menu and gorgeous cocktails; The Showers are unbelievable!!! Don't go here if you insist on... More

We had a tour of the estate which we booked before our departure. Cuthbert, one of the managers was our guide. He took us through the entire chocolate making process which included making our own chocolate bar to take away with us. We also made our own grafted cutting of a cocoa tree which has its unique number and is... More

The property is located on a cacao plantation, very lush and private, with amazing views of the Petit Piton. The feel is more of a private retreat getaway than your standard hotel. We stayed at a Luxe Villa over the Christmas; the villas are open-air "huts" with amazing views of the mountain, in-room coffee and tea bar, daily treats delivered... More

Appreciate your pros and cons review. We do try our utmost to ensure all our guests have a wonderful time and really welcome any feedback during the stay so we can react. For example, we are happy to cook special dishes, either for dietary requirements or preference. We do also have 'sleep sounds' on the room iPods which we recommend... More

Firstly this is definitely the part of the island to be staying in. We were based in Rodney bay but kept hearing how beautiful Soufriere was so we booked into Hotel Boucan for a night. How we wished we had stayed longer! The hotel is small, stylish but with a cleverly designed public area with the restaurant, bar and reception... More

We just returned from 4 nights at Boucan over the New Year holiday. It is hard to say enough good things about this place. For starters, the view is breathtaking when you check in. It never gets old and when on hikes, you feel like you are in a scene from Jurassic Park. The temperature is not too hot /... More

I personally don't think you can find a better place to stay in St. Lucia. If you're looking for a relaxed and quiet vacation (you will often feel like the only guests on the property) in a stunning setting, this is the place to go. Soufriere (a ten minute drive from the hotel) is a much more quaint and charming... More
