About us💛

Le Petit Paradis was founded in 1998, birthed from the owners’ desire to fund their first child’s accommodation when he received an International Basketball Scholarship in the USA at fifteen years old. 

They thought of many different ways to fund him, but quickly realised that hosting guests was the best option for them and their family.

They started from humble beginnings, building a very small one-bedroom cottage and hosted their first guest for one week. 

That’s when they realized this was a very lucrative business that could send their first son to school and support their entire family. 

" Excellent Guesthouse & restaurant next to Wotten Waven spas, about 20 min drive from Roseau. Great local flavours, very warm welcome. "Bullet" drink, a local speciality, is highly recommended! "

Joan is an expert chef who learnt all her top secrets from her mother– Mamma Julietta. 

Living in the valley of Wotton Waven in the early 1900s, Mamma Julietta cooked all her meals from an outside kitchen built from wood on what we locals call a “coal pot” 

All her food was locally grown from ingredients picked in her backyard garden. Joan, being the eldest daughter of 9 siblings, she had the responsibility of taking care of the younger ones which included cooking. 

She learnt by scrutinising every ingredient, every spice, and every seasoning Mamma Julietta used in her meals that were so deliciously prepared and practiced till her food was cooked to perfection.
