“This luxurious boutique resort offers villas which work particularly well with family groups with interconnecting villas which can be booked individually by one family or collectively as several families/or a multi generational family travelling together.” – Travel Loving Family
“Each villa has a terrace facing the ocean, and many have outdoor showers. The most luxurious villas are triplexes with rooftop pools and bars, which can be combined with neighboring units to form houses big enough to fit extended families or groups.” – New York Times
With two restaurant options and a variety of culinary-inspired excursions, there’s something for every palate at Cap Maison.
“Now, they may not have them on the menu [at The Naked Fisherman], but trust me when I say; ask for the saltfish fritters. They were the best ones we had on the island, and not a treat to be missed. But whatever you choose, the view is the best sauce you could ask for.” – The Londoner
“The hotel’s restaurant – The Cliff at Cap – is among the best, and guests can sign up for a tour of the market in Castries, followed by a private cookery lesson using the purchased local produce.” – The Telegraph
Kids Travel Pool Lovers
Whether your kids travel dream includes playing poolside with the whole family, a quiet dip in the courtyard pool or stealing away for a romantic moment in our rock pool, our resort has no lack of options to cool off after a day in the St. Lucia sun.
“Situated at the edge of a private ocean-bluff, Cap Maison’s infinity pool boasts breathtaking views toward Pigeon Island and Martinique.
Guests are also treated to three other pools – a courtyard pool, a natural rock pool and individual private pools for those staying in an oceanview villa suite. Here at Hero & Leander we are particularly taken by the natural rock pool; a natural pool that fills with sea water as the waves surge to the base of the cliff. It has a submerged bench and is the perfect place for guests to immerse themselves while enjoying a cocktail. Three carved out “ice buckets” are also in the rocks, awaiting a bottle of their choice – perfect!” – Hero & Leander
“#Seclusion: Sophisticated and away from the action, Cap Maison oceanview villas all have private pools.” – Travel & Leisure
There’s no need to plan a beach day; everything is right at your fingertips at Smuggler’s Cove. While the younger ones adventure in the ocean and play in the sand, you can enjoy a refreshing cocktail close to all the action at the Naked Fisherman, our beachside casual restaurant.
“The resorts secluded little beach ‘Smuggler’s Cove’ can be reached via a staircase of steep steps for a day of relaxing, dining at the ‘Naked Fisherman Restaurant’ or enjoying complimentary kayaking, Hobie Cat sailing and snorkeling.” – Travel Loving Family
