Why Stay At Cap Maison Resort & Spa
This serene 49-room hacienda has the best of both worlds: a sense of seclusion as well as easy access to the reggae-filled events of sun-drenched St. Lucia.
You might say that this St. Lucia hotel, with hilltop views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring island, Martinique, has two distinct personalities. Thanks to its location on the island's northern coast, the 49-room hacienda, a former 1,500-acre sugar plantation, exudes a sense of peace and quiet. Rustic-chic rooms are done up in white, mango, and deep coral, with hand-painted tiles on private terraces; airy public spaces are lined with oil paintings by St. Lucian painter Sir Dunstan St. Omar, who also designed the country's national flag. But come Friday evening, the resort is just minutes from the island's "jump-ups," the nickname for the popular Friday night street parties that take place around Gros Inlet.
Order a dark-rum-based "Planter's Punch" at Rock Maison, the hotel's wooden deck, and your drink will arrive from the main bar via zip line.
Bring binoculars to take advantage of the island's wildlife, including a wide variety of birds (Ospreys, Herons, Boobies, Bananaquits, and Magnificent Frigatebirds).
Arrive at George FL Charles Airport (SLU) which is approximately 6 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 15 minutes of travel time.Smugglers Cove Drive, Cap Estate, Gros Islet, Gros Islet, Saint Lucia
