Guests can relax in the privacy of their villa whilst still utilizing the facilities at the resort.
Set in the northwest of the island, Cap Maison is set among beautiful gardens overlooking the sea. Next to the resort, a small, pretty beach cove is framed by steep cliffs and rocks and although only small is certainly charming and secluded. The 92 steps down to the beach mean this resort isn’t suitable for those less mobile but there are facilities down at the beach including a restaurant.
Although the location feels very secluded and private, Cap Maison is actually just ten minutes’ drive from the shops, bars and restaurants of lively Rodney Bay, as well as the St Lucia Golf & Country Club. The fishing village of Gros Islet is only ten minutes’ drive away.
Food and drink
The gourmet Cliff at Cap restaurant is one of the best fine dining experiences on the island, where the emphasis is on using fresh seasonal produce with a French-Caribbean influence. The service is excellent without being over the top, and you’ll also be treated to stunning sea views toward Martinique and beautiful sunsets. The chef has worked at European Michelin starred restaurants and they regularly invite guest chefs to the island.
For more casual dining, The Naked Fisherman Beach Bar & Grill is an informal thatched roof venue on the beach offering casual grills, drinks and a laid back Caribbean vibe.
Cap Maison also boasts an impressive wine cellar with over 1,500 bottles of French, Chilean and Californian wines, which also doubles up as an intimate private dining venue. There are also two bars to choose from as well as the novel ‘Rock Maison’, a private dining wooden deck surrounded by the sea on three sides, where drinks are delivered by zip line.
Children of all ages are very welcome, although no children under 12 years will be allocated upper floor suites. The kids' club is only available from July to mid-September, but babysitting is available at a local charge year round.
Facilities and activities
There are two small pools; an infinity pool overlooking the sea with a Jacuzzi and another situated in a relaxing courtyard area. Down on the beach there is a range of complimentary non-motorized water sports available, including kayaking, Hobie Cat sailing, snorkeling on the house reef and windsurfing.
Tennis is available at a nearby hotel or at the National Tennis Centre, both just five minutes' drive away, and concessions are also available for Cap Maison guests at the St Lucia Golf & Country Club, an 18-hole championship golf course.
The hotel has a small gym and if you enjoy hiking or running outdoors, the Cap Maison Running and Hiking Club can offer you a guided remote beach hike or a trail run on Saint Lucia’s Atlantic coast, just ten minutes away.
There are many excursions that can be arranged by the hotel and the fishing village of Gros Islet is only ten minutes’ drive away. Here the historic streets are lined with rum shops and fishing shacks, and on a Friday the village comes alive with a fish fry.

If you wish to venture further south there are numerous excursions incorporating the famous pitons.
This luxurious boutique retreat offers impeccable attention to detail. It’s especially good for honeymooners or for those looking for somewhere romantic. The location is fabulous, as although it feels quite secluded, there is much within easy reach.
