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 hotel experience I have ever had. We had the opportunity to stay in both types of accommodations, and each is fabulous in its own way. Huge, open air showers with giant shower heads make you feel as if you have your own in-room spa--crisp, cool, hi-thread count cotton sheets cover beds so comfy you will have difficulty leaving--high functioning mosquito nets hang from four posters and allow you to Fully enjoy the exoticism of falling asleep with the breath and sounds of the jungle all around you--all the beasties can sing you a lullaby without you worrying about looking like Quasimodo in the morning from all the bites--you will have none. Every room shares these qualities, along with tasteful, chic, hip decor--The photos don't do the place justice, it is much lovelier than I expected (and my expectations were high). The more expensive "Luxe Lodges" are larger, have a private sun deck and lounge chairs, and views that I can only describe as wondrous. You will not want to leave your room--but thankfully, the wonderful staff at Boucan is happy to bring you something delicious for breakfast, lunch and dinner, if you so desire. I'm not entirely sure I haven't dreamt the whole thing--It really was too perfect, including the gracious and professional staff that does their best to make you feel like the most important person they have ever had the pleasure of assisting. Bang for the buck, I would stay in the smaller lodges (which are still huge) as the view can be had from the restaurant, as well as the "Club Boucan"--another marvel, with its sleek, cool lap pool, hip bar, and intimate sun deck. If you have ever had a fantasy of living like a rock star--Hotel Chocolat will fulfill that for you. Intimate, serene, completely surrounded by nature, yet totally luxurious--If this appeals to you, then there is really no other place to stay on St. Lucia.
