We were staying nearby so visited Hotel Chocolat for the 'Tree to Bar' tour. It was excellent, harvesting your own cocoa pod, learning all about the plantation and the great work that is going on all over St Lucia and planting your own tree. We saw every stage of the process from tree to cocoa nibs and were then able... More

HOnestly--Usually when I find something this wonderful, this marvelous, this magical--I keep it to myself. There are, after all, only fourteen "lodges" at Hotel Chocolat (even writing the name makes me happy again) and when I go to book, I don't want to find that YOU have my room. But I am making an exception--This is truly the most amazing... More

We visited St. Lucia for the first time in April 2013. We stayed at Hotel Chocolat during the second part of our trip. It was a very unique experience and we had a wonderful time. Things we loved about our stay: - Very new and modern design that is chic and blends indoor and outdoor space seamlessly. - The hotel... More

If you are looking for an intimate, beautifully designed new boutique hotel with stunning views of Petit Piton, this is the place to pick. We spent 3 nights in one of the luxe villas and selected the « Juste Married » package. It included a Sunset cruise which we shared with another couple (great opportunity to see the pitons from...

All too often when traveling one finds oneself having to compromise on one's aesthetic. It is rare to find a combination of location, architecture, design, food and overall style all in one property. Hotel Chocolat succeeds with flying colors. The location is great, with a spectacular and mesmerizing view of the Petit Piton. While a bit of ocean is visible... More

Cannot thank you enough for this, truly inspirational for us and we have shown and discussed it with the whole team in Saint Lucia, England and America. If you don’t mind me saying, you have hit the nail on the head with what we are trying to do, and have expressed it so eloquently! The ‘minor tips’ section is being... More

We came here for lunch and both agreed the food was better than at Dashnee at LaDera, although LaDera did have the better view. All of the food had hints of chocolate in it and was very tasty. Service was a bit slow, but it was most likely just Island Time.

In some ways Boucan exceeded all expectations. It is a testament to human ingenuity in engaging with nature. Service is good, food is inventive and local (sometimes hard to find this combo in St Lucia). Luxe villa has the wow factor in spades. But you pay fully for all this, it is on the "Davos man" level. Which is why... More

‘Engaging with nature’ is exactly what we aspire to bring to our guests and very pleased that you enjoyed this on your 4 night stay with us. ‘Slight adjustment on groundskeeping’ – its done and thanks for pointing out. More

Bucan is an oasis not a hotel. It challenges your senses, taking you back to nature, with today's deluxe modern comforts. The Luxe Lodges give you breathtaking views of the Pitons and vegetation both by day and at night. Night is so special, the stars are like jewels in the sky so clear as there is little if no light...

I am not a fan of chocolate even more so when the sweetness of chocolate is incorporated in savoury recipes. I had read on some posts that it is worth trying out this restaurant and so we did.
