The Cap Maison Hotel in St Lucia is the most glorious family run resort on this island in the Caribbean. This luxury hotel is set in tropical landscaped gardens and its magnificent elevated seafront location affords wonderful views of the Caribbean sea and across to the neighbouring island of Martinique.
Designed in a rustic Spanish Caribbean style, it offers guests some of the most spacious and beautifully appointed suites in the Caribbean. Fine attention to detail is evident everywhere from the designer furnishings and the unobtrusive contemporary technology to those extra touches of luxury including private pools and oversized roof terraces, where guests can soak up the Caribbean sunshine.
Service is everything you would expect of a truly luxurious resort and, perhaps, a little more. Butler-style service is available to attend to guests every need from a private cocktail party to a romantic dinner for two served in the secluded gardens.
The hotel is located in St. Lucia’s Cap Estate, at the northern point of the island, a former sugar plantation, the estate ranges through 1500 acres of beautiful rolling hills with the tranquil waters of the Caribbean sea on one side and the invigorating Atlantic Ocean on the other.
This amazing setting means that guests can enjoy all the privacy and seclusion of Cap Maison, while being just minutes away from championship-standard golf courses, restaurants, bars, beautiful beaches and the lively ambience and activities offered by chic Rodney Bay Marina.
Hotel Facilities:While Cap Maison offers you the luxury of a private pool in many of the suites, there are also swimming pools that all guests can enjoy. The courtyard pool, accessed through a brick-vaulted Spanish-style archway, is the perfect place to chill on a chaise-longue on the shaded terrace, and for sheer spectacle, it has to be the two infinity-edged, cliff top pools that cascade into each other or the adjacent hot tub for sunset drinks and endless views.
Restaurants and Bars:The dining opportunities at Cap Maison are designed to indulge your palate and your mood. You may choose The Cliff at Cap, set high on the bluff with the waves breaking below, refreshing breezes cooling the Caribbean sunshine and gorgeous views.
It has to be one of St Lucia’s most spectacular dining locations. By day, The Cliff at Cap offers casual breakfasts and lunches and when evening falls becomes a fine dining experience with creative, contemporary cuisine incorporating subtle French West Indian influences.
When the fancy takes you, you may choose to dine on your private terrace, in the Spanish Caribbean-inspired courtyard that creates a focal point for the hotel or even in the beautiful gardens. Butlers will take care of everything and, should you wish, chefs are available for in-suite private dining.
Perhaps a refreshing cooler by the pool, cocktails at sunset, a fine vintage to accompany dinner or a late night digestif? Guests at Cap Maison gravitate towards Theo’s Bar, named after the hotel’s owner. Just like our restaurant, it has that same spectacular cliff-top location and views, and changes with the hours from a relaxed rendezvous by day to a subtly lit retreat open long into the evening.
The Pool Bar serves drinks and light snacks throughout the day and there is also a well-stocked Beach Bar at Smogglers Cove
Walk-in Wine Cellar - A special feature of Cap Maison is our walk-in Wine Cellar, stocked with fine wines from both the Old World and the New. Guests may select a bottle from the wine list to enjoy with lunch or dinner, or visit the Cellar personally, where our experienced sommelier will help you to choose a perfect wine to savour anytime you choose.
