HOTEL OVERVIEWCap Maison is an elegant luxury boutique hotel in St Lucia set in a stunningly beautiful oceanfront location above a picturesque, sandy beach. Immaculately landscaped and with a stylish villa suite design, it feels more like a private residence (with impressive hotel facilities) providing the perfect setting to enable you to get the most from your precious holiday time.
Conceived, owned and managed by a renowned British Caribbean hotel family, service is naturally friendly, personal and attentive without being invasive. With an insatiable appetite for all things gourmet, the family and staff are passionate about everything food and beverage. In fact, we love foodies. Featuring two of the region’s best restaurants, the Cliff at Cap and the Naked Fisherman, Cap Maison has become the heart and soul of the St. Lucia dining scene. With its bespoke private dining options, creative and ever changing fresh menus, guest chef series, cooking classes, chef led market tours, walk in wine cellar with tastings and even its own home made honey and rum, it has become a culinary journey in itself. Add to that its water sports, Spa Maison and fitness centre, running & hiking club, house reef, 46 foot luxury motor yacht and its proximity to the St. Lucia Golf and Country Club and Rodney Bay dining scene, Cap Maison can be either the perfect private retreat or a base for the more active.
Mastering the fine art of relaxation, it will appeal to the sophisticated traveller, the romantic and the food lover as well as those seeking stylish and spacious accommodation with lots of activities.ROOMS, SUITES & VILLAS
Cap Maison’s rooms and suites are clustered imaginatively atop a private ocean-front bluff with magical sunset views over the clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. The accommodations combine elegance, charm, character with designer bathroom suites and plenty of space. Maximising its incomparable position within three acres of tropical landscaped gardens, with its sandy secluded beach below, most of the rooms and spacious suites, have amazing views and some with private roof terraces and pools. Cap Maison’s Two and Three Bedroom Suites are all of generous proportions and come with separate living rooms, dining areas, fully equipped kitchens and all the villa style conveniences you could possibly require. They are perfect for families or groups of friends when combined with an interconnecting Garden View room and the adjacent Ocean View Junior Suites.Rooms & Suites

Couples will love the privacy and the romance of having your own private pool and sun deck all to yourselves. * Not suitable for very small children.DINING & COCKTAILSAt Cap Maison we love good food & wine. Our Chef – Craig Jones (the Dreadlocked Welshman), a former protégé of Marco Pierre White. He’s combined a considerable knowledge of cuisine with fresh organic produce and Saint Lucia’s fertile lands and abundant waters. We have two restaurants, that are completely different. The “Cliff at Cap” with arguably the finest dining in Saint Lucia and the “Naked Fisherman”, our beach bar and grill. A more casual approach but the same passion for fresh, well cooked food. Our Wine Spectator awards are testimony to our passion for serving great wine with great food and we are very proud of our “Cellar Maison”. Essentially, our services at Cap Maison are offered on an a la carte basis, leaving our guests the freedom to come and go as they wish, however, because some guest request an inclusive approach we’ve developed “Cap it All” – our “Very Inclusive” option.
The Cliff at Cap Restaurant
The Cliff at Cap offers unobstructed views towards Martinique to the north and Pigeon Island to the West, and surrounded by the magnificent Caribbean sea, with unforgettable sunsets. An extensive selection of wines, and a menu inspired by a fusion of Caribbean and French influence, makes dining at this extraordinary restaurant a real pleasure for any epicurean traveler. Chef Jones’ cuisine is intensely focused, as illustrated by his ‘Studies” in a particular ingredient, often featured on his menus and in doing so he creates innovative, contemporary food. The “ Cliff” dinner menu is available every night, except Saturdays, when we present our “Tapas” Menu which has a wine pairing option and Tuesdays, when we create an Island atmosphere with a Creole inspired feast.
The Naked Fisherman Beach Bar & Grill
Nestled on our natural secluded cove is 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 B-B-Q grill. The atmosphere is less formal than the Cliff, but the food is taken just as seriously. The business of cooking fresh juicy steaks, ribs and fresh locally caught Snapper, Grouper and Dorado deserves the best attention of our kitchen brigade. Look out for the many ‘specials’ TNF presents – Creole Seafood ‘Boils’, Lobster Lunches, Sunday Vybe with music and surprise shooters, BBQ Taster night and most recently “The Food Truck”!
At Cellar Maison we are proud of our award winning wine program, so important to our love of good food. 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 our new world selection. Before lunch or dinner, ask our sommelier to take you to the wine cellar and show you around our collection of 2,000 bottles as he helps you pick your selection. Tastings throughout each week will tempt your palate with flights of unique wines, paired with a delectable assortment of amuse-bouche and interactive discussions guided by our sommelier. The team can also zip-down your favorite bottle from our Champagne Zip line to our private dining venue Rock Maison or we can revive the old tradition dating back from the Napoleonic wars by Sabering your bottle of fine fizz in a fun ceremony where we open champagne using the blade of a knife.
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!
The Cliff bar carries a full range of premium brands and the staff are expert at the art of cocktails as you would expect from a luxury Caribbean resort. Pride of place in our drinks section must go to our wine cellar, which carries a surprising collection of superb wines from both old and new worlds. Regular tastings are featured and guest sommeliers visit the resort from time to time throughout the year. The wine cellar is also popular for small intimate dinners.Go To TopSERVICES
When the Gobat family researched for a product on which to base their “Spa Maison” operation, they chose “Sothys” from Paris. This line also has an exclusive New York salon and several selected outlets globally including the Caribbean. They wanted a product that would complement a luxury boutique resort like Cap Maison. Cap Maison St Lucia is among an exclusive selection of resorts, listed by Sothys as one of their Caribbean based salons.
Situated in the Main House at Cap Maison, Spa Maison offers an opportunity to indulge yourself and to be pampered and experience some of the highest quality treatments in St. Lucia. Spa Maison have chosen their therapists not just for their experience and training but for that bit extra – magic and healing in their hands, leaving you with a feeling of total relaxation and self-indulgence! Treatments can be taken if you wish in your suite or room, on your terrace, on Rock Maison or under a gazebo in the garden – the choice is yours. Spa Maison also offers treatments for men, see the menu! From time to time we can offer other treatments from visiting therapists such as reflexology and shiatsu.

Yoga & Exercise
If you wish to maintain your fitness regime or simply enjoy a holiday workout, our well-equipped gym (Cybex) offers a cross-trainer, free weights, exercise bike, two treadmills, resistance machines. The Gym is equipped with three TVS to help pass the time. The Cap Maison Running and Hiking Club is at your disposal for beautiful guided cliff top and remote beach hikes and trail runs on St. Lucia’s dramatic Atlantic coast. Join our guided walks and trail runs along scenic cliff tops and remote beaches on the Atlantic Coast.
Yoga and Meditation -There are a number of locations on the Cap Maison property that are tailor made for relaxation and contemplation. We schedule some of the islands most proficient Yoga, Meditation, Pilates and Reflexology specialists on a regular basis and this is best placed in your holiday itinerary by letting us know in advance so we can design a custom program for you. Imagine an early morning with the sun just risen, cool breezes still bathing the shoreline prior to the hot sun of the day. Imagine too, setting out a yoga class combined with meditation on a wooden deck mounted on the rocks with the ocean splashing around you….. sound good? If you like that idea then you can have it. Yoga on “Rock Maison” is a must do at Cap Maison. For beginners or more advanced, all can enjoy.
Shopping and Markets
Shopping in St Lucia has literally transformed in the past few years – particularly in the Rodney Bay area. Rodney Bay is only a few minutes drive from Cap Maison and there are a number of great shops and malls. We recommend Baywalk at Rodney Bay which has an excellent range of duty free outlets. Nearer to Castries, the Island’s capital city, you can find a wide range of duty free shopping at Pointe Seraphine, which is a favorite shopping point for the visiting cruise ships. There are two terrific markets in Castries which are great for arts and crafts and for inexpensive souvenirs to take home.
The St Lucia Golf and Country Club is literally a few minutes from the gates of Cap Maison. It offers perhaps the most challenging 18 holes of golf in the Caribbean. While this undulating par-71 only plays 6,685 yards off the Blues, the course attracts a USGA rating of 74.3, taking well into account the strong winds, numerous water hazards, fast greens and 16 out-of-bounds which we hope you will not encounter during your round. The club provides a full driving range, golf carts and Callaway rental clubs/shoes. You can also enjoy the amenities of the drinks cart, well-stocked bar, pro shop and full service restaurant. Nature lovers will also be inspired by the natural splendor of the course and the wildlife that lives on it.Go To TopMAP
