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).

We were in awe of this beautiful property from the moment we arrived! We loved the Greek island vibe with the white buildings set up on a dramatic cliff. The rooftop pool was amazing and the suite was spacious, with everything we needed. Beautiful sunsets every night with a wonderful wine selection to choose from to bring a bottle back to the room. The staff was what really set this place apart! They were all so friendly and seemed like a tight knit family who enjoyed working together. The staff was very accommodating when we brought back a live lobster and wanted to cook it in our room. They provided a larger pot, spices, butter, and limes. By our last day we felt very at home and didn't want to leave. Read less

This was our first trip to the Caribbean and we chose St. Lucia. The next big decision was what resort to stay at. We chose Cap Maison as we were looking to relax in seclusion for a much needed break. We booked an ocean view room and did the all inclusive option. We ate mostly at the resort restaurants and enjoyed drinks, and felt like it was worth the value. We enjoyed the spa and I had one of the best massages I’ve ever had! We had a couples massage - they did a good job of taking care of each of our needs, while maintaining a quiet and relaxing room. We reserved the Rock for a private dining experience like no other. We booked it for 5:00 and enjoyed the sunset and cocktails before a delicious dinner was served around 6:30. We stayed there for about four hours total, enjoying the waves at sunset and in the moonlight. We also had an amazing time at the beach. Dunstin helped us with sea kayaks and taught us how to use the Hobie - get the lesson if you decide to do it! He’s very happy to help you with a variety of ocean activities or your can lounge enjoying fresh and delicious drinks and food from the Naked Fisherman (included in the all inclusive). The highlight for us though was the friendly and kind staff, from Dunstin, to Darian taking care of our pool, to Allison, Cheryl and Tanicia serving us at the restaurant, to Julian our hiking guide....wonderful, warm people. We will be back to this friendly place in paradise! Read less

I really wanted to love this, but the rooms don't quite hit the mark for the price. They seem older than they are, and we had a couple of maintenance issues that never got resolved. The staff was also not on par with the service we received at other nice hotels. The grounds and view are gorgeous though, and we loved having our own private plunge… Read more

The staff was also not on par with the service we received at other nice hotels. The grounds and view are gorgeous though, and we loved having our own private plunge pool. Of the hotels on that end of the island I'd probably still choose this one, but given a choice I'd much rather go back to the Sufriere area. Read less
