Cap Maison

St Lucia, Caribbean

The hotel

At the tip of the island, the former sugar plantation that is now St Lucia’s Cap Estate is blessed with unparalleled panoramic views of where Caribbean Sea meets Atlantic Ocean. The boutique resort of Cap Maison makes the very best of these views and is designed to feel as if you are visiting your own private Caribbean residence. For dining with a view look no further than the award-winning destination restaurant, Cliff at Cap, with an innovative French West Indies fusion menu. It’s strategically placed atop the Cliff with a sunset lookout for happy hour cocktails. The pool adjacent to the restaurant enjoys the same views from its sun deck and there is an adjacent secluded beach cove appropriately named The Naked Fisherman beach restaurant. Take the 90 steps down to the sand and you’ll find a rustic beach bar serving up lunch time grills, freshly squeezed juices and wonderful rum concoctions. Kayaks, snorkels and Hobie cats are complimentary to guests or you can take some tuition for a fee. Spa Maison and the fitness centre are available for further rejuvenating body and mind; on hand there is a pilates/yoga instructor and a fitness trainer to lead morning jogs across the estate. The Cap Estate’s rolling hills have also become home to the 18-hole St Lucia Golf & Country Club. Guests at Cap Maison benefit from concessionary golf at this beautiful and challenging championship course which extends virtually from the Caribbean to the Atlantic coastlines (a complimentary shuttle takes approximately 5 minutes).

This is our second visit to the lovely Cap Maison hotel. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay - it’s just like paradise. The friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere make you feel at home straight away. We have been so looked after by all staff, Cyril by the pool who made up a yummy mocktail ‘Scorpion’ for me - you should give it a try! The food in both The Cliff and The Naked Fisherman is superb - definitely worth a shout out. All staff are super friendly. As return guests we were lucky to be treated to a massage in the spa and join the sunset cruise. What a spectacular sunset it was! We were also treated to a room upgrade to a one bed villa half way through our stay - oh my, what a fantastic sea view it was! We would love to come back and can’t recommend this place enough! Thank you to everyone who looked after us so well - this is truly a special place! Thank you from us - Fia, Graeme and Freya Horncastle Read less

I loved Cap Maison. We spent a week here and it is a beautiful spot with friendly staff and excellent food. My husband and 2 boys ages 12 & 14. We really love boutique hotels vs larger hotels and resorts and this was just right. The Naked Fisherman is the ideal beach “bar” & a great option to have, except maybe for the steep climb after indulging on the catch of the day, but that likely helped stay fit for bathing suits. My only complaints are the hotel and food is a bit too expensive and we would have loved to have more options to sail. One Catamaran was missing and it would be great to have a Feva or Sunfish. Thanks for a great vacation - hope to be back! Read less

I stayed at Cap Maison for 4 nights on a business trip. The hotel is beautiful. Its a smaller hotel than expected on the north part of the island but perfect for honeymooners who want privacy. Food and drink - I am vegetarian and there was lots of food options for me, staff were accomodating and would go off menu to fit me. Breakfast was really good. Most of time I ate at the cliff restaurant. The views from the Cliff were so nice. Beach - the hotel is on a beach, down a few steps. Although it is a public beach, no-one else really uses it because Cap Maison is the only one close to it. The beach was clean and really good. There is a beach bar for drinks and snacks. Room - the room I was in was a garden view room, very nicely designed and great amenities. The bed was really comfortable. I would have liked to have a bath not just a shower. Read less

This is a beautiful, luxury 'boutique' hotel with superb food and in a glorious location. The staff were exemplary; kind, friendly always with a smile even when tired or under pressure. In the island the people are the same and the beach time was a blend of great service, with friendly delivery. The only downside was the flawed communication between the restaurant and the main desk. On leaving, our bill for extras such as drinks with our pre-paid meals and use of the mini-bar had to be corrected twice. Our room number was confused with our table number; we were charged for use of the mini-bar when we hadn't used it and we were supposed to have signed for a tip when we hadn't. So, when staying here, check what you've consumed before you pay your final bill. Ours was out by over US$80. Read less
