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
Great resort, great staff, excellent service, the following staff went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was a memorable one: Velma, Kevin, Tenisha, Kaisha, Leanna, Cyril, Dillan very welcoming team members. Mr Ross, GM, made us feel like celebs when he took time out to sit with us to chat about our weekend experience. Great job, keep it up. We will return.
Great location, nestled in a beautiful cliff with it’s own beach. The rooms were spotless, perfectly clean and the staff tales care of everything. It’s the perfect place to relax and restore. The breakfast had a lot of options. Their beach service offers chairs, umbrellas and options if you’re up to aquatic sports. Great place for snorkeling.
My now-husband and I stayed at Cap Maison under the Peak to Beach package for our honeymoon and have to say that this was an AMAZING stay. We had the all-inclusive option and we tried everything under the sun, and it is WORTH it. From the time we arrived to the airport to our departure, it was a one-on-one experience. Our room was an amazing - villa suite with private pool with stunning sunset views every evening. If you love boutique properties with excellent cuisine (Wow, the Naked fisherman), please look at this hotel as an option. Thank you to the entire team - great job.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Cap Maison. The food was very good; the rooms were extremely high quality; the hotel and restaurant staff were outstanding in comparison with other Caribbean resorts.
It seems that St Lucia gives visitors little reason to venture out of the resort. Elsewhere we encountered very loud, booming music, mediocre food, very rough roads, and poverty.
Cap Maison is truly incredible. The views are spectacular, the food is 5-star at every meal, and the grounds are like your private palace. The beach is fantastic, in an idyllic cove with perfect sand and perfect rolling waves. Loved the thatch roofs shading the beach loungers. Both the beach and the restaurant on the beach which was charming and had great food were movie set worthy. We will never forget our stay here.
