Reviewed 26 March 2016

This is an unusual boutique hotel, with its admirable and interesting cocoa business, and is highly recommended but for a max 2/3 nights. The view of the Pitons on arrival is beyond stunning and it has been designed to make the most of it. However, you can become a bit claustrophobic and bored of it as the reception is in...

Delighted that our spa ladies made it into your top 3 and you went back for more. We have several seld guided trails on property to explore the cocoa planation, Soufriere town is about 10 minutes in a taxi to find other local eateries, Sulphur springs is walking distance, Tet Paul trail and local water falls are all within the...

We live in Cheltenham UK just 10 minutes from a Hotel Chocolat store, so we were keen to visit the hotel, plantation and tour in St Lucia. They really do make a premium product, which we enjoy. We booked lunch and a tour after while in the UK. It was a good hour plus drive to get there from Marigot...

I can not say enough wonderful things about Boucan. My husband and I spent a week at Boucan and neither of us wanted to leave. I will openly admit, when I initially booked our rooms, I was a little hesitant due to the "open air" concept (I am NOT an "outdoors" person and the thought of potentially sharing our room...

This was our second visit to Boucan by Hotel Chocolat in Soufriere, St Lucia. Soufriere, and this hotel, have become one of our favourite places on earth! The beauty of St Lucia and the amazing people of this island are perfectly complemented and highlighted by this incredibly thoughtful and luxurious boutique hotel. We were lucky to get married at the...

Loved our stay here. Lux lodge #8 had the most beautiful view of the piton-miss galling asleep and waking up to it. Breakfast was very good, lunch/dinner selection was pretty good as well. Shuttle and boat trip to the beach every day is very convenient and not a hustle at all. Certainly one of the most beautiful destinations in the...

I had a delightfully peaceful 3 nights in this wonderfully exotic hotel. The grounds are very lush and tropical, after all, it's a cocoa plantation. I took the "bean to bar@ tour where I was taught about all the local flora and fauna. I also grafted a tree, attached my surname, had a photo op and made a bar of...

Me and my husband spent four days at Hotel Chocolat and we had a wonderful time! This small hotel is tucked into the greenery - you can't even see it from the road apart from the sign. The view from the restaurant/reception area is just stunning! We got a complementary welcome cocktail to enjoy with the view. There were also...

Free shuttle to the beach is a smooth boat trip from the town of Soufriere around the Piton on our very own Boucanieer II boat - great way to arrive. Great tips for future travelers - Thanks

We drove for an hour to have lunch and it was worth the trip. The dinner menu looked better, but since the Piton is not illuminated (?) you would miss the view. The menu was not gimmicky with chocolate or carob nibs. It all worked well. We should have left room for the pud, as we ended up sharing one....
