Founded in 1969, Papillote (pronounced PAP-ee-ott) continues to enchant visitors from around the world who return again and again to revel in the tropical gardens, steam away their stress in hot mineral pools, and enjoy authentic Creole dining at the Rainforest Restaurant. The name Papillote dates back to the 1850′s, post-emancipation years when two freed slaves, Pappi and Alliot, settled in the Roseau Valley area and engaged in subsistence farming.
Perched on the rainforest slope of Morne Macaque, near the small mountain village of Trafalgar, Papillote is near all of the extraordinary attractions of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park. The twin Trafalgar Falls are just a short walk up the hill from Papillote.
There may well be no better way to relax than with a glass of Cuthbert’s legendary rum punch and a long soak in one of Papillote’s steaming hot volcanic pools after an adventure-filled day of hiking, scuba diving or just wandering around the island.
