From St Lucia’s Boucan Hotel, Restaurant and Cocoa Plantation to the Graycliff Hotel in Nassau (which recently debuted its own chocolate factory), Caribbean hotels are increasingly upping their chocolate quotient.

The latest entrant into the chocolate sector is the Buccament Bay in St Vincent and the Grenadines, which has joined forces with British chocolatier to offer the “Chocolate Experience,” a course in chocolate-making.

Wilton founded the world’s first chocolate-themed hotel in England, and will be guiding guests in April for four master classes in tasting, truffle making, mould making and chocolate cocktails, among other specialties.

The classes, which take place from April 14 to 17 and April 18 to 21, will also feature gala dinners.
