Boutique resort with beach access, a spa and a wine cellar
Restaurant menus lack variety during slow seasons
Sitting above Smugglers Cove Beach in St. Lucia's Cap Estate, Cap Maison provides a boutique hideaway separate from the island's larger resorts. Cap Maison boasts 49 Spanish-Caribbean-style rooms and suites, each featuring a balcony or terrace, an Amazon Echo or Bose docking station, a coffee maker and a bathroom with hand-painted tiles and a walk-in shower. If you approach luxury travel with a go-big-or-go-home mentality, consider booking an Ocean-View Villa. These spacious suites feature full kitchens, living rooms and two or three bedrooms, as well as rooftop terraces with private pools. Luckily, I Prefer rewards members can earn deals and special perks throughout their stay at this Preferred Hotels and Resorts outpost. In addition to the beach access, guests will find a spa, a fitness center and a wine cellar on-site. Visitors rave about the cuisine at the two on-site restaurants, especially The Cliff at Cap's intimate cliff-side setting and French-West Indian cuisine. However, some say both eateries' menus lack variety during the offseason. You'll find Cap Maison on the northern tip of St. Lucia, less than 3 miles northeast of Pigeon Island National Landmark.

Prepare to be pampered by doting staffers at this intimate villa resort on the northern tip of St. Lucia. Luxuries include unpacking (if you wish) and a personal butler for any little needs that might arise.

Fodor's Choice



This upmarket boutique hotel in the Cap Estate neighborhood gets raves for its roomy, Spanish Caribbean–style accommodations and personalized service. Lush tropical landscaping adds to the Mediterranean-villa ambiance, terraced in cliffs along the island's northern flank, with breathtaking views of Pigeon Island and Martinique in the distance.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended

Condé Nast Traveler


At the northern tip of St Lucia, on what used to be the sugar plantation, Cap Maison occupies on a cliff like a small orderly village. This cluster of three-story white buildings has a Spanish (via Caribbean) colonial architectural motif with its characteristic Moorish inflections, painted tiles, and dark wood.

Travel + Leisure


You might say that this 49-room hacienda, with hilltop views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring island, Martinique, has two distinct personalities. Thanks to its location on the island's northern coast, the former 1,500-acre sugar plantation exudes a sense of peace and quiet.

Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards 2019


The resort's 49 rooms and villas have a Caribbean meets Spain feel, with local artwork blended with hacienda-inspired design elements. Most rooms have sea views, while villas offer full kitchens and separate living areas, along with other luxurious features like private pools or whirlpools.
