With the majestic Petit Piton as a backdrop and sun-dappled cocoa groves all around, there's an irresistible charm to this intimate property, the first hotel venture from luxury British chocolatier, Hotel Chocolat. Set within the stunning natural beauty of the Rabot Estate close to the old French capital Soufrière, this is a very relaxed affair housing guests in a handful of plantation-chic Lodges with open-sky rain showers and Luxe Lodges featuring private verandas and breathtaking views. Cocoa and chocolate, naturally, are the essence of any stay, centring on the Tree-to-Bar Experience that encourages guests to explore the chocolate-making process. At the Boucan restaurant, estate-grown cacao is subtly introduced throughout the menu, as a spice and infusion for savoury dishes and in chocolate form in the divine desserts. Relax at the guests-only Club Boucan swimming pool and private lounge set high above the trees, or unwind at the CocoaJuvenate Spa. Altogether the perfect choice when combined with one of our beach resorts in the north of the island.
Include 3 nights accommodation with breakfast. Flights and transfers are not included.

With its tropical climate and temperatures averaging 24°C, St Lucia is a year-round destination, though the best months to visit are generally from mid-December to May, when the island is drier and less humid. During June to November, the humidity level increases and intense tropical showers or occasional storms may be experienced – excellent offers are usually available during these months. A popular choice for luxury family holidays, St Lucia is usually busy around the school holiday periods; we recommend booking a year in advance, especially for the festive season.
