Can a dazzling, five-star hotel with all the latest luxuries still reflect the soul of the Caribbean? At the Cap Maison Hotel in St Lucia, the answer is yes.
With a former sugar plantation as its roots, Cap Maison stands on the very top of an oceanic bluff – presenting you with perhaps the most astounding views from any hotel in St Lucia.
On one hand is sparkling blueness of the Caribbean. On the other is the rolling majesty of the Atlantic ocean. Below, reached by winding steps, are the incomparable waters of Smugglers Cove Beach. Far off, in the mist of distance, is the island of Martinique.
As well as providing magnificent panoramics, this wonderful St Lucia hotel also stands at the pinnacle of contemporary luxury. It takes its inspiration from the classic Mexican village, so its infinity edge pool, spa, elegant bars and restaurant are set amidst a series of charming fountains and tucked-away courtyards overlooked by traditional, multi-tiered balconies.
The accommodation at the Cap Maison Hotel in St Lucia ranges from oversized rooms and junior suites - decorated in natural tones with exotic woods and hand-painted ceramics – to villa suites with their own Jacuzzis or pools. Many of these are set on the edge of the cliff, others feature private sun terraces that are ideal for discreet, all over tanning.
So the soul of the Caribbean is alive and well – especially in Cap Maison’s bluff top restaurant; serving wonderful, French West Indian cuisine…and a large helping of romance.
