Honeymoon resort information
There are 6 Lodges, each one measuring 450 square feet and set around a charming garden courtyard looking out over Petit Piton. All lodges come with a plush king-sized bed, a lounging sofa and spectacular open-sky rainforest shower.
Luxe LodgeThere are 8 Luxe Lodges at the resort, situated in an elevated location to command sweeping views of the Pitons and the glittering Caribbean. Each Luxe Lodge is 750 square feet in size and boasts a super king-size four-poster bed, not to mention an open-sky twin rainforest shower and a private veranda complete with sun loungers.
Another great way to unwind is by taking a dip in the black quartz infinity pool at Club Boucan, before flopping down on a pool lounger and enjoying a selection of tasty nibbles and refreshing beverages. But if you would prefer a more upbeat activity, why not try the hotel’s Tree-To-Bar Experience, a fascinating tour which showcases how the cacao beans are grown, fermented, dried – and then turned into particularly delicious chocolate.
Other tours are also available at Boucan, ranging from Cocoa Grove Walks to the Sulphur Spring Volcano Power Walk and a ‘Boucaneer’ Underwater Explorer excursion, which includes snorkelling and a scenic cruise.
