Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina
Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina offers year-round unique dining experiences with local touches and fantastic flavours served in the most beautiful of settings, on the hillside of Marigot Bay. Naturally, when Saint Lucia celebrates Chocolate Heritage Month honouring the island’s rich history of cocoa production, this luxury resort is the place to be for specially-curated chocolate experiences.

Some suggestions for a chocolate-filled day at Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina:
In the Morning - Rising after a sound night’s sleep in lavish accommodation, from hillside Penthouse Suites with beautiful four-poster beds and private hot tubs to Bay View Suites with stunning vistas, guests can start their day in the signature restaurant. The Grill at 14⁰61⁰ is located at the resort's highest point, offering breath-taking views of the Marina and bay. The specially crafted Morning Delights is the perfect way to start the day, the selection includes:
• Cocoa French Toast | Banana Preserve
• Pumpkin Crepes
• Chocolate Mouse | Candied Walnuts
• Cocoa Nib Granola
• Yoghurt | Thyme Honey

In the Afternoon - After a few hours have been enjoyed around the resort - from time spent lazing in the two gorgeous pools, relaxing in the tranquil Auriga Spa or perusing a wealth of retail outlets at Marina Village - guests will be ready to enjoy an afternoon snack. The Rum Cave, influenced by the Caribbean’s colonial era rum distilleries is the perfect place to enjoy a chocolatey snack or two. There is a fantastic selection of Chocolate Inspired Snacks, including:
