As the name suggests, chocolate is the primary theme of Hotel Chocolat, and situated on a working cocoa plantation, this is a hotel for those with a sweet tooth.

Built in 2011, the hotel has been painstakingly renovated by the owners, bringing a touch of unabashed luxury to this small cocoa plantation, and pure indulgence for its guests.

The accommodation is comprised of 14 cocoa pods - individual cottages set around a courtyard made of dark wood. The pods follow the chocolate theme, and each comes with an I-pod pre-loaded with music inspired by the surroundings.

The Boucan restaurant overlooking the Caribbean Sea showcases amazing cocoa cuisine, where all of the food is infused with a hint of chocolate. Although this may sound a little OTT, the food is so delicious and cleverly created that it works.

The hotel has a 50-foot black infinity pool at the luxurious Club Boucan, and a small spa specialising in (yup, you guessed it) cocoa-inspired treatments. Alternatively, take a tour of Rabot estate cocoa groves and learn about how the chocolate is made. The beach is also only a short drive away.

Why We Love It

After a tour of the cocoa groves, enjoy a sundowner in the Boucan bar while listening to the fantastic steel band to get in that Caribbean groove.
