Loterie Farm

Love to be outdoors connecting with nature? Or are you a daredevil and love extreme sports? Well here we have them both! Loterie Farm is a secret hideaway nestled in the hillside of Pic Paradis on French Saint Martin where you can wine, dine, climb, hike and glide over the treetop canopy. It is truly an eco-tourism and gastronomical experience you're not likely to forget or find elsewhere.

The sign at the entrance of Loterie Farm says "established in 1721". We have significant records suggesting that the first owner of Loterie Farm was an Englishman by the name of Richard Bailey who won the rights to establish a sugar plantation at this location in a land loterie. That's why it's called Loterie Farm.

Of course it wasn't always called Loterie Farm; it was before called Loterie Plantation but the word plantation is indicative of forced labor so we don't like to use that word anymore. It's cute when you're using it in terms of a restaurant that might sit in the middle of a city but out here this was a real plantation.

Today, Loterie Farm preserves and protects Mother Nature with the same respect that it does the memory of the slaves that labored this land some 160 years ago.


  Amongst a good number of travel writers and gourmet magazines, Bon Appétit Magazine featured this treehouse-like eatery in its February 2005 issue. The Hidden Forest Café's setting and ambiance are as eco as the dishes are culinary using the freshest ingredients found on island, each garnished with flowers, fruits and vegetables grown on the nature reserve itself.

Mangoes, Bananas, Sour Sop, Coconuts, Papaya… with over 1000 species growing on the reserve, the Hidden Forest Café is notorious for serving succulent dishes garnished with fruits and vegetables homegrown. Those same natural products find their way to the Tree Lounge where tropical cocktails are concocted, namely Loterie's signature drink Sex in the Tree, and served in a relaxing social setting.
