Papillote Wilderness Retreat
Papillote Rainforest Restaurant
The island nation's first ecolodge serves up Creole cuisine amid its sprawling tropical gardens, pocketed by geothermal pools on the rain forest slope of Morne Macaque. With 12 acres (5 hectares) of bromeliads and begonias, small wonder it featured in Patricia Schultz's bucketlister classic 1,000 Places to See Before You Die! Lounge on the thatch-roofed terrace while dining on curried goat or smoked marlin quesadillas. Local organic produce also stars here, weaved into dishes like pumpkin soup, breadfruit puffs, and pineapple cobbler. Non-guests are welcome for lunch and dinner, but should make reservations.
