Saint Lucia is an Eastern Caribbean island nation with a pair of dramatically tapered mountains, the Pitons, on its west coast. Its coast is home to volcanic beaches, reef-diving sites, luxury resorts, and fishing villages. Trails in the interior rainforest lead to waterfalls like the 15m-high Toraille, which pours over a cliff into a garden. The capital, Castries, is a popular cruise port.

our LXRY! hotel selection

We have some criteria before we can call a hotel a LXRY! Selection Hotel. We want to be surprised, we need luxury and hospitality at a high level, we love the quality of food and the rooms, we think the location is super important, and….we want to memorize the hotel for a lifetime! So you will not find basic chain hotels that look similar in all countries but truly found local gems that are different and memorable.

St. Lucia


It’s clear from your first walk on the soft white sand: This luxury St. Lucia resort is here to renew you. Enjoy the privacy and beauty of 100 acres of pristine rainforest on the Caribbean Sea. It’s all at the site of an 18th-century sugar plantation and in the embrace of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pitons. Seek seclusion in private accommodations amid vibrant gardens and soaring trees.

Take the opportunity to reconnect and reflect as you explore every breathtaking angle of this island paradise — be it hiking in the Pitons, indulging in a treatment at the Rainforest Spa, or sipping a rum cocktail at the beachside bar. Not a day passes here without incredible memories made and peaceful moments found.

Stay at this beachfront hotel in the Caribbean and the modern amenities, such as butler service, make sure your every need is attended to. And your every whim? Follow them as you take in breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and miles of sandy beaches.

Enjoy the views of Gros Piton across the waters of the Sugar Mill Lily Pond and the majestic ruins of an 18th-century sugar mill. This is what it means to truly escape and commune with nature and history.

Luxury Cottage

These are the definition of tranquil enclaves. Totally private and with the most stunning of views, they capture the resort’s plantation history with high-beamed ceilings and a voile-draped four-poster bed. Relax indoors in your sitting area or take it outside, where there are a private terrace and plunge pool to enjoy as the warm Caribbean sun shines. From here, you can see the dramatic Piton mountains and the sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea.

St. Lucia

a place where the sounds of nature replace the noise of day-to-day life

Previously known as Boucan (the Creole word for a traditional cacao drying shed), the hotel is re-opening under a new name: Rabot Hotel, paying homage to the ancient grounds of the beautiful cacao estate it resides in, an organic, sustainable 140-acre cacao farm on the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia.

Rabot Hotel is a spellbinding getaway comprising 14 private eco-lodges and an open-air restaurant, bar, and spa. Set in the lush nature of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s a place where the sounds of nature replace the noise of day-to-day life, stimulating and inspiring relaxation like no other place on earth overlooking the island’s iconic Pitons. The hotel reconnects guests with nature by way of open-air architecture and sustainable earthy materials – it is a Saint Lucian idyll.

Created to sit perfectly in the stunning natural beauty of the rainforest surroundings, accommodation at Rabot Hotel is a unique blend of Saint Lucian charm and sleek contemporary style.

All rooms are positioned to catch the cooling breeze and are furnished with premium luxury and comfort in mind – and the views are to die for.

Rabot Hotel, formerly known as Boucan

Reconnecting with nature by way of open-air architecture, sustainable earthy materials, and organic, eco-conscious practices is all part of the ethos of our Saint Lucian idyll. And so it was that as of July 2020, they found themselves unifying under a moniker that captured this spirit.

Condé Nast Traveler: “Visitors come here less for a beach holiday than to immerse themselves in a world of chocolate. You can harvest cocoa in the morning, temper it into chocolate in the afternoon, then kick back with a poolside martini infused with the sweet pulp of just-picked pods.”


St. Lucia


Rising majestically above the 600-acre beachfront resort of Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain Resort on St. Lucia’s south-western Caribbean coastline is a cornucopia of organic architecture celebrating St. Lucia’s stunning scenic beauty.

Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy has expanded upon his philosophy of building in harmony with Caribbean nature in his creation of Jade Mountain St. Lucia. The bold architectural design – individual bridges leading to exceptional infinity pool sanctuaries and rugged stoned-faced columns reaching towards the sky – makes Jade Mountain St. Lucia one of the Caribbean’s most mesmerizing resort experiences.

Expect grand sweeping spaces where bedroom, living area, and an extravagant private infinity pool glide into one another to form extraordinary platforms floating out into nature. With the fourth wall entirely absent, Jade Mountain’s sanctuaries are stage-like settings from which to embrace the full glory of St. Lucia’s Pitons World Heritage Site, and of course, the eternal Caribbean Sea.

Wrapped around an infinity pool with a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors, the Jade Mountain Club celebrates James Beard Award winner Chef Allen Susser’s “Jade Cuisine.” Hovering in space above the Jade Mountain Club is the Celestial Terrace, perfect for sunset cocktails or star-gazing.

A wide range of spa services can be enjoyed in the privacy of the Jade Mountain sanctuaries or at Kai en Ciel, Jade Mountain’s boutique spa and fitness studio. The resort’s major domos and a dedicated resort team ensure outstanding service around the clock.

Enjoy the exclusivity and privacy of Jade Mountain with all of the sister resort Anse Chastanet’s restaurants, bars, boutiques, art gallery, spa, scuba, bike, and watersports facilities as well as 2 soft sand beaches available and easily accessible to Jade Mountain guests by foot or resort shuttle at all times.

St. Lucia

A one of a kind St. Lucia experience

Once part of the Rabot Estate, one of Soufrière’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations, Ladera Resort stands today as St. Lucia’s most unique and luxurious resort and the only resort situated on a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The setting is breathtaking and unlike any other, on a volcano ridgeline 1,000 feet above the deep, blue Caribbean Sea, with stunning views of the Pitons. 

The resort’s intimate design, with just 37 rooms and suites, offers the perfect setting for forging a connection to the beauty, romance, and lifestyle of St. Lucia. Befitting the resort’s eco-friendly philosophy, each is uniquely constructed from locally harvested tropical hardwoods, stone, and tile. Furniture is made on-site by St. Lucian artisans.

Your suite’s “open wall” gives way to a private plunge pool and magnificent views of the Pitons and Caribbean.

At every moment the attentive staff is available to meet any need. Resort amenities are designed with your ultimate relaxation in mind, including authentic St. Lucian culinary experiences at our Farm to Table Award-Winning Dasheene Restaurant.
