Cocoa Cottage Review
This eco-sensitive, hand-built wood-and-stone lodge has a cozy tree-house feel, and, though very basic, it's still comfortable. Many of the furnishings are made from recycled materials: bed frames from recycled spools, lamps from coconut shells, and flowerpots from bamboo. All beds have colorful cotton quilts and mosquito nets. Some rooms have swinging beds, balconies, and hammock chairs. You can start your day with a cup of hot cocoa (with homemade chocolate) or tea—grown on the surrounding trees and plants—while you enjoy the melodious sounds of birds. Later have a picnic at a nearby stream or take a nature tour. The hotel offers guided tours to hot springs in Wotten Waven and attractions in Morne Piton National Park like Boiling Lake and Trafalgar Falls as well as canyoning, during which brave souls complete eight rappels down waterfall-filled canyons.
