Welcome to paradise. The iconic Piton peaks stand majestically before you and it’s here, near the original French capital of Soufrière, that we have lovingly nurtured the 140-acre Rabot Estate.
1,000 feet above the glittering Caribbean sea lies Boucan, a luxurious resort nestled in amongst our cacao plantation on the tropical island of Saint Lucia.
Whether you're a couple looking for quiet seclusion, honeymooners wanting a little privacy, a single traveller or a group of friends in need of an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, you’ll find peace and quiet in our idyllic stretch of heaven.
The terrain, atmosphere and activities will not suit every age. That’s why we welcome adult guests (over 18) exclusively because we want you to enjoy the 250-year-old Rabot Estate to the utmost. Unwind in our Cocoa Juvenate Spa, sink into the infinity pool and watch the sun slide behind the Piton mountains. A peaceful retreat, perfected.
For the past 14 years, Hotel Chocolat has been quietly revolutionising British chocolate. By growing our own beans, we disrupted the traditional cacao farming model. By bringing ethically produced, high-quality chocolate to a mass market, we challenged the status quo.
We are now at the forefront of sustainable cacao farming and developed our award-winning Hotel Chocolat range with this philosophy in mind. Rabot 1745 is our beauty range, inspired by our love for Saint Lucia, the people and the plants that flourish there.
Rabot 1745 Beauty is an exciting new chapter in the Hotel Chocolat story. With a rich history of trade between Saint Lucia and Britain going back over 250 years, our new beauty range continues that relationship - and builds on our love affair with the cacao bean. Hotel Chocolat co-founders Angus Thirlwell and Peter Harris challenged modern apothecary Andrew Gerrie to explore the Rabot Estate and to imagine the collision of these two worlds. Deep within our dappled groves, Andrew was inspired by what grew there to create a range of luxury beauty products. Rabot 1745 is the result and is the essence of what our estate would look like, bottled.
