Can’t get enough chocolate? Try satisfying your sweet tooth with a stay at one of these four hotels for chocolate lovers.
The Chocolate Boutique Hotel, England
This bed and breakfast is all about all things chocolate, from the chocolate treats waiting for you in your chocolate-colored room to The Chocolate Bar that serves an array of cool chocolate cocktails. What really sets The Chocolate Boutique Hotel apart, though, are the weekend workshops that let you get hands on to create your own chocolatey truffles during the two-and-a-half-hour class. The Chocolate Sleepover package includes a chocolate and wine tasting, followed by a workshop where you’ll paint your very own chocolate portrait to take home.
Hotel Hershey, Pennsylvania
The opulent 1930s-style Hotel Hershey sits just five minutes from Hersheypark, but even if you don’t venture over to the chocolate mecca, you’ll enjoy plenty of decadence. The piece de la resistance here is The Spa at the Hotel Hershey, which offers a host of chocolate-inspired experiences. You can literally bathe yourself in chocolate with the whipped cocoa bath or lose yourself in the chocolate immersion, a chocolate body treatment followed by a chocolate fondue wrap.
Boucan, Saint Lucia
Go straight to the source with a stay at Hotel Chocolat’s Boucan resort in St. Lucia, where you’ll be nestled amid the cacao groves of Rabot Estate, St. Lucia’s oldest cacao plantation. Freshly made chocolate goodies await in your room daily, but you can always make your own chocolate with the “Tree-to-Bar Experience,” a tour of the Rabot Estate that offers an intimate look at the chocolate-making process. Boucan’s Cocoa Juvenate Spa also offers a host of choco-treatments, including massages, facials, mani/pedis and body wraps.
The Langham, Boston
At Boston’s luxurious Langham hotel, chocolate lovers can indulge to their hearts’ — and stomachs’ — content at Cafe Fleuri’s all-you-can-eat Chocolate Bar. That’s right: all the decadent, chocolaty goodness you can handle for $42. The chocolate extravaganza is only held on Saturday afternoons and features treats like truffles, crepes, cupcakes, pies and even cotton candy. Still not enough chocolate for you? Make a weekend of it with The Langham’s Chocolate Bar Package, which includes an overnight stay, buffet for two, a gift pack of Langham chocolate and access to the hotel’s fitness center, so you can feel a little less guilty about your weekend of indulgence.
