Open for Bookings

Previously known as Boucan (the Creole word for a traditional cacao drying shed), the hotel is re-opening under a new name: Rabot Hotel, paying homage to the ancient grounds of the beautiful cacao estate it resides in, an organic, sustainable 140-acre cacao farm on the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia.

Rabot Hotel is a spellbinding getaway comprising 14 private eco-lodges and an open-air restaurant, bar and spa. Set in the lush nature of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s a place where the sounds of nature replace the noise of day-to-day life, stimulating and inspiring relaxation like no other place on earth overlooking the islands iconic Pitons. The hotel reconnects guests with nature by way of open-air architecture and sustainable earthy materials – it is our Saint Lucian idyll.

Rabot Peace of Mind Pledge

The safety and comfort of our guests and staff have always been our priority here at Rabot. That’s why, in this new world, we’ve embraced a series of safety and precautionary measures that underpin the caring spirit of our brand. Here’s what a stay with us looks like today:

Health and Wellbeing
Health & Wellbeing

We’re making every effort to protect the health of our guests, colleagues and communities: all our staff, suppliers and security teams have been fully trained in new safety procedures, provided with PPE and access to regular health checks. For your part, we kindly ask that guests present a negative COVID-19 test at check-in, taken seven days or less before travel to Saint Lucia, wear a mask while on the Estate and practice regular handwashing.

Handled with care
Handled With Care

For your peace of mind, thorough housekeeping and deep-cleaning will be carried out throughout the Estate even more frequently than usual; oft-touched amenities and surfaces (such as handrails and counters) will be sanitised every hour at minimum using recognised disinfectants. Sanitiser stations will be also be on-hand throughout the Estate for everybody’s use.

Feeding the Senses

Inside-outside architecture means no elevators, no corridors and no high-traffic areas. What’s more, each lodge sits at a luxurious distance from its neighbour, so each guest can enjoy their own self meditative space in the surrounding rainforest. Meanwhile, at our cacao-cuisine restaurant, Rabot, open-air Cacao Bar and Cacao Spa, we’ll be observing social distancing standards with tables and sunbeds spaced out at a minimum of 6ft.

St Lucia is currently in the reopening phase which means guests must remain on property for the entire stay. The traditional experiences that St Lucia is known for will be in limited capacity, however a number of sea and land-based tours are now available to be booked by the hotel directly (subject to change).

We encourage you to come along to our daily guided activities to experience all that the Rabot Estate has to offer. Sedate strolls through our fragrant cacao groves, or setting your yoga mat down in the forest surrounding your lodge are actively encouraged (leave the headphones behind, exotic birdsong provides the only meditative soundtrack you’ll need).
