Saint Lucia Celebrates All Things Chocolate in August
In honour of the island’s rich history of cocoa production, Saint Lucia is going cocoa crazy for the month of August. Even the sweetest tooth will be satisfied over the four week celebration as 'sun downers' will be swapped for ‘Choc-tails’ and massages for chocolate-infused spa treatments.
Saint Lucia’s chocolate legacy dates back to the thriving cocoa industry of the 1700’s and the island still produces some of the world’s most sought-after chocolate to date. Hotels and resorts are embracing the rich heritage creating inventive chocolate services and amenities as well as hands-on experiences for visitors. Many of Saint Lucia’s top resort spas and restaurants use native cocoa to create inspired savoury and sweet dishes and spa treatments that are both indulgent and healthy.
The entire island will be involved with choctastic surprises ranging from cocoa plantation tours, bean to bar experiences, specialty tasting menus and money saving offers in all of the resorts...now that really is the golden ticket!
