Cap Maison

Smuggler's Cove Dr., Cap Estate, Gros-Islet, St. Lucia

Prepare to be spoiled by the doting staffers at this intimate villa resort—the luxurious service includes unpacking (if you wish) and a personal butler for any little needs that arise. The property's 22 villas can be configured into 49 rooms, junior suites, and oversize (3,000 square feet) villa suites—each with a full kitchen and washer/dryer and most with an amazing sea view as far as Martinique. The elegant Spanish Caribbean architecture features terra-cotta roof tiles, large private balconies, and huge roof terraces—nine of which have a private plunge pool. A large infinity pool at the edge of the bluff and a smaller pool are available to everyone. French Caribbean cuisine is served at the resort's excellent cliff-top restaurant, the Cliff at Cap; the beachside bar and grill, the Naked Fisherman, serves lunch and dinner. Guests love the daily wine tastings and Friday night "wine and dine" experience in Cellar Maison. For extra pampering, there's a full-service spa and a calming Zen garden. Because the resort is on a seaside cliff, getting down to the beach—a secluded crescent of sand—requires hiking down (and back up) 92 steps. The resort also has a 46-foot, 15-passenger powerboat to take guests on day trips to Soufrière or nearby Martinique—or on honeymoon cruises.
