This is a great place to stay IF YOU READ BELOW My husband and I spent 3 nights during our babymoon here. This is a beautiful but somewhat minimalistic hotel. The main thing you need to know is that there is no air conditioning. Standard rooms are pretty but they are just that. Our room had no view and because...

Beautiful and peaceful with great variety of things to do, the highlight of which was the highly skilled talk/tour given by Merle. Merle's knowledge of the island and in particular the growing of cocoa and production of chocolate is unlikely to be matched any time soon. The manger Judy was also very kind and thoughtful. In all we had a...

Just returned yesterday from Hotel Chocolat. We had a wonderful experience, staying five nights in a standard lodge. We stayed from October 19 to the 22nd, and were lucky to have perfect weather. It only rained on our last day there and was brief. We have stayed at two other resorts in St. Lucia - St. James at the north...

Thank you for such glowing review, and noted the other improvements, our room toiletries are from our branded Cocoa Juvenate range, using quality natural ingredients such as cacao butter, honey , cane sugar, grape seed and argan oil.

My wife and I had the distinct pleasure of visiting Rabot Estate and being guided by our outstanding tour guide Merle. As part of the Tree to Bar Experience, you learn all you could imagine knowing about the entire lifespan of cocoa from seed to chocolate. You also have the opportunity to graft your own cocoa tree and build your...

We had the pleasure of going in the tour round the estate. We got to make our own dark chocolate bar and learn about the growing process which happens on the estate. Really nice people and happy to answer the questions about chocolate you have. If you get chance and are a chocolate lover I strongly recommend a trip. The...

My partner surprised me with this trip - a week at the fabulous Hotel Chocolat! Not sure where to start but in summary; incredible food (if it doesn't grow on the island then you won't see it on your plate), divine accommodation (just 14 lodges) in an oasis of tranquility, lots to do beyond lounging (from touring the cacao plantation...

This was a very last minute decision to get away for a week. I have to say that this is right up there as one of the best holidays my wife and I have had - just slightly behind our honeymoon of course! The hotel is amazing! Its stunning and the setting is breathtaking. We did 7 nights in a...

This place is great if you want a secluded couples vacation. I don't know why they would have a dog on the property that barks in the middle of the night and with the lodges having no windows (open air), there is no way to avoid this noise. I was awaken 2 nights in a row by this dogs barking....

We did the Tree to Table Chocolate tour and it was well worth it. They go into great detail showing you how they grow the tree and produce the chocolate pods. You graft your own plant and name it.

What a great way to spend a day, learning the process of the chocolate making starting with the tree and then going to indulge in lunch. We are in the process of making chocolate in house to be sold in the shop, watch this space.
