Perched on a cliff above crashing surf on St. Lucia’s north shore, Cap Maison has all the components needed for romance: a secluded sliver of beach and candlelit paths that lead to stunning ocean views. The experience begins at check-in, with a slender flute of champagne and a cold towel in the lobby, which features wrought iron chandeliers and a long corridor of creamy stone tile, a nod to the resort’s Spanish hacienda style.
Bed and Bath
The resort’s 50 guestrooms and villas are housed in eight terra-cotta-roofed buildings, which are named after St. Lucia’s flowers. The 480-square-foot Junior Suites feature local artwork and crisp white linens, with throw pillows adding pops of turquoise and magenta. Villas are well worth the splurge, as they feature stainless steel kitchens and a separate living and dining area; they may vary slightly in decor, but expect such thoughtful design touches as hand-painted tiles and recycled rum bottles, copper sinks, exposed wooden beams and tumbled marble. In some, a private shaded veranda leads to a small pool with jaw-on-the-floor ocean views.
While away the day down at the beach or by one of the two pools; the two-tier pool comes with dramatic vistas of the undulating sea. For something a little more relaxing, head to the three-room spa for a treatment (try the Peace of the Senses, a circular massage that incorporates an oil scented with orange and lavender). When lunchtime comes, siddle up to the bar at the beachfront Naked Fisherman restaurant and order fresh seafood and burgers. And for dinner make a reservation at the open-air Cliff at Cap restaurant, where chef Craig Jones serves fare (think five spice duck breast, creamed corn and seared foie gras) that rivals the views.
In the Area
Set sail on the 46-foot Cap Maison 1 motorboat docked at the Landings marina for a sunset sail, a lunch and shopping excursion to Martinique, or an overnight trip to the Grenadines (available for an additional fee). Rather take to the waters under your own power? Master the basics of kitesurfing in the waters off Cas en Bas beach. And if you tire of the water, hit the links at St. Lucia Golf & Country Club for a day on the green, or meet the locals at the Gros Islet Fish Fry on Friday nights.
How to Get There
We ended our 7 night stay in St. Lucia with one night at Cap Maison and it was the perfect end to an amazing week. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious and the resort grounds are impeccable. We loved lounging by the pool as it is nice and quiet. Lunch at The Naked Fisherman was yummy but pricey. Sunset cocktails and dinner at The Cliff was amazing and well worth the price. Breakfast at The Cliff was excellent as well. We are so glad we decided to end our trip at Cap Maison as it is a 5-star resort paradise.
We really enjoyed the resort overall. Used St Lucia Airport Transport for a $75 ride to and from the airport. 90 minutes each way, and very windy roads. Food at Cliff at Cap and The Naked Fisherman was very good. TNF was a little pricey for lunch. Breakfasts at Cliff were great. Ate at Jacques (pretty good, but terrible service), Big Chef (excellent) and Tao at Body Holiday (excellent). Bartender at Cliff was very good. Views are stunning, and watching the sunset there is an Olympic sport. Shout out to Cyril at the Pool, and Darius at TNF. Great guys who love what they do.
If you are not O+ blood type, you should come to Cap Maison. I unfortunately am, and got completely bitten up despite loading up on sprays at all times. The mosquito netting on our bed did NOT keep the bugs out, and I will spare the reader a picture of the 12 welts on my right hand alone that 2 days after leaving are still painful and infected. We killed at least 20 mosquitoes in our room, and vacation should not be spent doing this. I even had to kill mosquitoes during a spa treatment. Yes, the resort fogs, but doesn't fog inside the rooms or the lobby. As great as the resort overall is, we unfortunately cannot return. I expect the manager to respond by writing that they are in a tropical area. We have traveled to over 20 Caribbean islands and have never had such problems. The other properties in St. Lucia we visited did not have these problems.
Wow, what a gorgeous hotel this is, set in beautiful, lush surroundings. Our “room” was enormous, the size of an apartment with a full bathroom, a second toilet, two large verandas, a roof terrace and our own plunge pool. Food at both restaurants was excellent with menus changing daily - even the breakfast menu! Both staff and management were friendly, helpful and efficient. We only had a week there but came away feeling completely chilled. I can’t really fault this hotel and hope to be back for a second and third visit.
Visited for a short stay with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. We have stayed before and this time was no disappointment. As always the instant you arrive you feel the calming energy of the location start to relax you. The impeccable staff always know how to give you just the right amount of attention without being overbearing. The enthusiasm for your comfort and enjoyment is authentic and consistent. The staff are central to what makes Cap Maison such a fabulous place to stay. That is not to detract from the accommodations however which are classy, elegant, understated and so so comfortable. Acres of space to lounge and spread yourself out. Our villa had a rooftop plunge pool and stunning views of the ocean, pigeon island and over to Martinique. The food was sumptuous as always. We ate at both The Cliff and Naked Fisherman restaurants for great meals.
Cap Maison is a gem. There are cheaper places to stay but Cap is worth every dollar as the quality of your experience is unsurpassed for relaxation and indulgence. Simply perfect. Well done to the team there for their consistent delivery of excellence. We will be back.
It was our 17th Anniversary and my husband and I wanted to treat ourselves to a relaxing, romantic over night stay somewhere special and Cap Maison ticked ALL the boxes! The food at the Cliff restaurant was superb and we also had lunch at their beach bar Naked Fisherman which was also delicious!!!!
All the staff were exceptional, our room/villa (#22) was relaxing and quiet only the sound of the waves could be heard, with its own revitalising small pool on the roof terrace, lots of seating areas to relax and we were able to sit and watch a stunning sunset just for us ... Perfect!
What a treat and anniversary to remember!
Thank You Cap Maison.x
