We stayed at Hotel Chocolat St Lucia over the New Year’s period for 1 week and were certainly not disappointed. Our expectations were as high as the price tag and the incredible location, friendly staff and innovative food meant every day of our stay was enjoyable. From cocoa nib butter with breakfast to roti and delicious curries for lunch to the more elaborate NYE 6 course meal, the food was truly one of our highlights. Some folks might find being stranded in a giant plantation far from bars/restaurants a bit of a downer but we relished the remote surroundings and went off walking every morning in a different direction exploring lakes, waterfalls, hot springs and enjoying the abundant locally growing produce. It is worth hiring a car for at least a few days so you can drive to the closest town Soufriere, a little further to Rodney Bay and to the capital Castries- you won't get a real feel for the island if you just stay in the hotel (however tempted you may be!). We were upgraded to a luxe lodge and the little touches are what made it special - a thoughtful can of insect repellent, a free bottle of sparkling rose and fresh nuts, chocolates and cookies replenished daily. I have been recommending this hotel to everyone I know and hope to return one day to sit in the beautiful restaurant and enjoy the view of petit piton over a cocoa pulp martini with my love.
