Do you like chocolate? Then you should visit our Chocolate Laboratory! There are over 2000 cocoa trees on the resort estates, including the organic farm Emerald’s in the Soufriere Hills. Since 2010, our resorts have hand-crafted Emerald Estate Chocolate for the enjoyment of our guests. And with the opening of the chocolate laboratory, guests are now able to not only taste but participate in the making of the chocolate.
Our resort guests can now choose from a variety of chocolate infused activities like chocolate sensory tastings, educational estate trips and truffle making classes on a year round basis. Chocolate lovers will be further enticed by chocolate inspired dishes, cocktails and body treatments in the resort restaurants, bars and spa.
About the Chocolate Laboratory
Cocoa history on Saint Lucia dates back to the early 1700’s. There are many plantations on the island that have been harvesting and producing cocoa for many years supplying the local market and culture as well as becoming a part of the international commodity of Cocoa. In celebration, the month of August has been declared the “Month of Chocolate”.
In close collaboration with the resorts’ Consulting Chef Allen Susser, Jade Mountain’s Emerald Estate Organic Chocolate and Chocolate Laboratory are managed by the resorts’ very own Chocolate Alchemist.
