Jade Mountain to Celebrate Chocolate Heritage Month This August

This August, the luxurious Jade Mountain Resort joins the island of St. Lucia in celebrating Chocolate Heritage Month. 

All month, the immersive cocoa experience at Jade Mountain introduces chocolate lovers and the casual cocoa nibbler to the history of the bean, including its origins as an Aztec beverage, its influence in European exploration, and its contemporary production.  

The unique layout of Jade Mountain provides an all-access, bean-to-bar experience. The adventure begins with "Chocolate Alchemy at Jade Mountain," an array of delights, including a chocolate welcome amenity and cocktail; the "Chocolate Lovers Breakfast in Bed" celebration; a chocolate-infused, one-hour spa treatment per person; a learning excursion through the resort’s 2000-tree Emerald Cacao Estate farm while learning about cocoa cultivation and harvest; and a "Chocolate Sensory" tasting followed by an interactive class in Jade Mountain’s chocolate laboratory to learn basic techniques of making and tempering chocolate.

If clients can't make it to the August festival, guests of Jade Mountain can still choose from a variety of year-round chocolate-infused activities, including culinary adventures, truffle making classes and estate visits.
