Boucan by Hotel Chocolat
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more appropriately named resort in all of the Caribbean. At Boucan by Hotel Chocolat, opened by a pair of British chocolatiers and set on a 140-acre working cacao plantation, the decadent confection inspires everything from the dark-stained woods and cocoa-bean prints in the 14 guest rooms to the chocolate-accented dishes at Boucan, the open-air restaurant (think cacao tortellini stuffed with mahi-mahi and goat cheese), to the spa treatments, which incorporate estate-grown beans in facials, massages, and more. Guests can even harvest cocoa beans and make their own chocolate bars at a class held daily. But if you’ve had too much of a good thing, there’s always a chaise near the black quartz infinity pool overlooking the Pitons or a shuttle on hand to take you down to Sugar Beach.

Cocoa a go-go

A dessert island fantasy, Boucan by Hotel Chocolat in St Lucia seems made for chocolate lovers. The jungle-surrounded hilltop lodges – with views of the Caribbean Sea and Petit Piton peak – perch beside a cacao plantation that hosts classes and tours, with plenty of samples. The ultra-local restaurant serves some of the island’s best food, including chocolate in both sweet and savoury preparations. Though the hotel natural setting is relaxing enough to help you forget it all, cocoa is rarely far from mind: the superlative spa even uses homegrown pods in its massage treatments.


CocoaJuvenate spa focuses on chocolate-centric treatments in open-air rooms with mountain views. The staff use the plantation’s home-grown cacao beans, butter and oil, along with banana leaves, to make antioxidant-packed lotions and oils for treatments.
