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).

Cap Maison resort was idyllic in location and layout; a collection of pretty, separated buildings of rooms and apartments nestled in the most wonderfully maintained gardens. Apparently Vladimir Ashkenazy's gardener on St Lucia also looks after Cap Maison's garden with her daughter. It was always easy to find a lovely, private spot with a gorgeous view of the ocean or gardens to sit quietly and read. The small beach was picturesque and the many water activities (happily quiet ones, no motor boats allowed) were impressive and nicely organised by the staff. My husband and son found the snorkelling splendid - they saw barracuda, urchins, tiny, multi-coloured squid and a host of exotic fish just a few metres off shore. I liked the tree shade on beach in the afternoon and though sometimes busy, the beach always seemed fairly tranquil. Better to find a spot at the end of the beach away from the Naked Fisherman restaurant if you don't want music disturbing the peace - although it was mostly at a very reasonable level. The food was good and plentiful - both at breakfast and in the resort's restaurants. The rooms were very clean and comfortable - we had a Junior Suite with balcony for us three with a lovely view of the ocean - thank you to the resort for listening to our request for a sea view when we booked. The only small niggle with the rooms was that a more generous supply of shampoo and body soap would have saved a few calls to ask for more (though extra was always brought quickly and with friendly grace). The staff were mostly fantastic - a lovely man stopped what he was doing one evening to explain the habits of the small tree frogs that called at night (apparently one guest from Las Vegas once asked the hotel to turn down their calls after a particularly rainy night, assuming the sound was a recording and could not be natural!). The courteous and friendly manager set an excellent example to everyone. Now and then some staff seemed to mind reasonable requests - like taking a sea view table when the restaurant was empty - but getting to know everyone better helped with that. After all, this hotel has a lot of visitors and it is easy to see why. Overall we loved Cap Maison and would thoroughly recommend it to any family looking for a tranquil, idyllic spot to relax and unwind. Read less

Every room in this establishment is unique and lovely. The staff are interactive, attentive and several called us by name from the first day we arrived.

I didn’t eat a single bite that wasn’t absolutely delicious and the grounds are spectacular! My favorite meal was Wahoo that my wife caught 45 minutes before we brought it to the chef at the Naked Fisherman. He prepared it 3 ways for our party, grilled, blackened, and tempura fried. Simply amazing! Thank you for a wonderful escape to paradise! Read less
