Hotel Overview


In a picturesque setting in a 140-acre working cacao plantation in Soufriere in the south of St Lucia, surrounded by tropical rainforest.

Rooms at Hotel Boucan

Inspired by the natural beauty of their surroundings, the lodges are a beautiful blend of traditional St Lucian charm and sleek contemporary style. The chocolate and cream-coloured interiors have king-sized four-poster beds, stylish furnishings, iPods pre-loaded with a select playlist, and open-sky rainforest showers. They are positioned to catch the cooling island breeze, and unsurprisingly, they have panoramic views of the Pitons and the Caribbean. Some have private verandas with sun loungers perfect for relaxing on, St Lucia style.   As well as Jing tea, freshly ground coffee and a welcome bottle of chilled prosecco, you’ll also find chocolate treats in your room – and they are replenished daily!

Food and facilities

The restaurant’s inventive cacao-inspired cuisine also features local fresh fish, salads and vegetables, as well as herbs from the hotel’s herb garden. The menu includes both savoury and sweet dishes such as cacao-spiced beef with white chocolate mash and cacao red wine gravy, chilli cacao hummus, Creole fish with Creole-cacao spices and fish and chips with cacao tempura - and for dessert, St Lucian chocolate tart and the beautifully-named Chocolate Genesis, which tells the story of chocolate in a 9-stage tasting plate - all served in a spectacular setting. Enjoy a sunset Cacao Bellini in the elegant bar.

Activities at Hotel Boucan

Take a dip in the stunning black quartz infinity pool, which directly overlooks the Pitons, and unwind at the Cocoa Juvenate spa with a soothing cacao treatment or massage (the cacao bean is packed with antioxidants and minerals, and infusions such as mint, rose and nutmeg are also used). Walk along the cocoa trails and find out more about how chocolate is made on an exclusive tree-to-bar tour. Further afield, hike around the Pitons and soak in natural mineral baths.
