Cap Maison, Cap Estate, St. Lucia
A fresh and new approach to boutique West Indian hotel living, Cap Maison has a Spanish Caribbean style of architecture and offers guests oversized villa-suite accommodation with beautiful wooden jalousie doors and private, elegantly furnished verandas. Attention to detail is paramount from the personal service to the unobtrusive technology and extravagant touches throughout.
The resort is set atop an ocean bluff in a secluded location on the estate of a former sugar plantation with ocean views across to Pigeon Island and Martinique and with a beautiful cove beach below. Cap Maison offers creative and contemporary cuisine at the Cliff at Cap restaurant, incorporating French West Indian influences with the focus on fresh ingredients – perched on a cliff edge, arguably St Lucia’s most spectacular dining setting.

The Cliff at Cap – offers casual breakfasts and lunches and at night transforms into a fine dining experience with creative, contemporary cuisine incorporating French West Indian influences
The Naked Fisherman Beach Bar & Grill – Smuggler’s Cove beach, is where ‘Cap’ guests love to relax during the day. It provides a “toes in the the sand” moment, whilst listening to the sweet lapping of the waves, or watching stunning sunsets. The “Naked Fisherman” is located right on the beach under a thatched Caribbean style roof, with a state of the art BBQ grill. The atmosphere is less formal than the Cliff, but the food is taken just as seriously
Cellar Maison – the enviable collection at Cap includes: rare champagnes, grand cru Bordeaux, fine Burgundies, orange wines, organic and biodynamic wines made naturally and a collection of fun unpretentious grape varietals from Cap Maison’s new world selection. Before lunch or dinner, ask the sommelier to take you to the wine cellar and show you around the collection of 2,000 bottles as he helps you make your selection
Private Dining – where Cap Maison excels and there are some very creative options to consider. Whether you plan a romantic hideaway dinner for two, or a family celebration or a party… Cap Maison can deliver something very special
Bars – Cap Maison has three bars, the Cliff bar adjacent to the namsesake restaurant, the bar at The Naked Fisherman on the beach and Theo’s bar (named after the family patriarch Theo). Theo’s is found in the main house and is a place to relax, read a book or watch TV and you are not bothered by staff! You simply help yourself to drinks on an “honesty” basis, noting your drinks on the pad provided!
