I have just returned from Boucan after a holiday of a lifetime. I went with a girlfriend in celebration of special birthdays and we enjoyed the utmost relaxation thanks to the pool, restaurant and spa combined with the thrills of the experiences (we went on the Sunset Cruise, the West Coast Raiding party cruise and also did the Tree to...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms had no windows and you can actually sleep with the natural rain forest sounds throughout the night. I was afraid that the insects and Mosquitos would cause us great pain during our stay but this never happened as our bed had a net. We also loved the complimentary chocolate, cookies and the...

We are assiduous customers of Hotel Chocolat in London and this was one of our dream places to go. As the price is waaaay too expensive for us to stay too long, in our week-travel to St Lucia we booked only our last night in here. It was beyond all my expectations!!! It is a beautiful place surrounded by nature.... More

My wife and I had three nights at the Boucan by Hotel Chocolat and wished we had booked longer. On arrival we were made very welcome and offered a cocktail. We were then given a guided tour of the hotel and shown our room. All was exceptionally clean and our room had everything we needed for our stay plus some... More

While we didn't stay at the hotel, we did participate in their Tree to Bean and Bean to Bar Experience, making our own chocolate bar in the end. We came in on a cruise ship and were slightly late to the first part of the tour but Cuthbert quickly recapped what we had missed. As the nursery manager, he is... More

This place is simply stunning. If you are looking for a more natural, Eco-friendly, sustainable experience (you eat what they grow!), away from the typical beach resort, this might be the place for you. Nestled in the lush forest, next to the Pitons, the views are unbeatable. This resort is ideal for couples. If you want waterfront this might not... More

Spent five days with Judy and Phil who run a unique estate utilizing ,in some form, the cocoa bean from thousands of trees right at your doorstep. A prime location for viewing the majestic pitons both from your suite and the restaurant. Staff was quite accommodating, rooms are very comfortable and open-air, and the food exceptional. Janus, who owns the... More

You hit the nail on the head - the cocoa bean is at the centre here - in the cuisine as a light spice and all around the rooms in our organic, ethical cocoa plantation. Such kind words in your review, thanks very much. More

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

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
