The ABC television series “The Bachelor” will be airing its final scenes from the Cap Maison resort in St Lucia.
The series, which has frequently filmed in the Caribbean, will host its season finale’s “rose ceremony” on March 10 at Cap Maison (another episode that filmed at the resort debuted on Feb. 25).
This year’s series has filmed at several locations in St Lucia, including Anse Chastanet, Stonefield Resort, Hotel Chocolat, Sugar Beach, Calabash Cove, the Landings and others.
“The Bachelor has become a staple in reality television. The fans of this show religiously tune in season after season,” said Tracey Warner, deputy director of tourism for the St Lucia Tourist Board. “We feel privileged to once again share in this journey toward love with them.”
It’s the latest reality television coup for St Lucia which recently received a wave of publicity thanks to locally-born Chef Nina Compton’s strong showing on Bravo’s Top Chef.
Cap Maison, which is located on a cliffside north of St Lucia’s Rodney Bay, includes 50 suites and guestrooms, along with the noted Cliff at Cap restaurant.
The hotel recently debuted a new beachfront eatery called “The Naked Fisherman Beach Bar & Grill.”
