Set 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea, with breath taking views of Saint Lucia’s Piton Mountains, Rabot Hotel is a space where the sounds of nature replace the noise of day-to-day life, stimulating and inspiring relaxation like nowhere else on Earth. Comprising an open-air restaurant, bar, spa and 14 luxury lodges, here you’ll find a sense of freedom as you reconnect with nature; sustainably living, eating and prioritising your wellness. Previously known as Boucan (the Creole word for a traditional cacao drying shed), the hotel is re-opening under a new name: Rabot Hotel, paying homage to the grounds of the beautiful cacao Rabot estate it resides in since 1745, an organic, sustainable 140-acre cacao farm on the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia. As cacao growers, Hotel Chocolat use every part of their cacao harvests in their Rabot restaurant and Cacao Bar; from the lychee-like pulp to the nutty, buttery nibs, nothing goes to waste. Serving contemporary dishes influenced by the West Indies and Britain, roasted cacao beans feature as a subtle savoury spice and garnish – as well as the rich, deep heart of desserts. Elsewhere, cacao is used for wellness treatments at the Estate’s open-air rejuvenation area. Using fresh ingredients that are gathered each morning – banana leaves, peppermint leaves and cacao nibs – its Cacao Massages are some of the best you'll experience. Blending into the verdant greenery via inside-outside structures, each of the Estate’s lodges brings guests face-to-face with the primordial beauty of the rainforest and Hotel Chocolat’s Rabot Estate cacao farm. Drawing on Hotel Chocolat’s expertise as a chocolatier and cacao grower, Rabot Estate Hotel offers guests the opportunity to discover cacao like never before. Beginning with a walk through the cacao farm and ending with crafting your very own chocolate bar, Hotel Chocolat’s Tree-to-Bar Experience covers all the fascinating stages of making your own chocolate, from fermenting and sun-drying the cacao to grinding, mixing and more – with plenty of tasting in-between… Taking a self-guided stroll through the 140-acre Estate’s valleys and cotes or setting your yoga mat down in the forest surrounding your lodge are also actively encouraged. Leave the headphones behind; exotic birdsong provides the only meditative soundtrack you’ll need. Accommodation at Rabot Hotel is a unique blend of Saint Lucian charm and sleek contemporary style. All rooms are positioned to catch the cooling breeze and are furnished with premium luxury and comfort in mind – and the views are to die for. There are two types of accommodation, both with 4 poster beds, Ceiling fans, Complimentary wireless, Mini-bar & Open sky rainforest showers.
