This is a beautiful resort nestled in the jungle of St. Lucia. All rooms are beautiful and very clean. We were first placed in a room several steps above the restaurant. It was a big hike but had a beautiful view. We were there in late October, weather was hot & humid. Upper rooms have great views but no air conditioning, only ceiling fans. Most Europeans didn't mind the heat but us California residents got too hot and were able to move to an Ocean Room. We did not have the view but had air conditioning which was much better for us. Wear comfortable shoes because there is alot of walking up and down steep stairs to get around the resort. Food was beyond excellent!! Chef Jonnathan and his crew prepared gourmet meals for lunch and dinner. We had the semi-inclusive meal plan (did not include beverages). Be aware, beverages are expensive, $6.49 us dollars for a soft drink.
Scuba Center was outstanding. Crew was very organized, well trained, helpful, professional as well as friendly. Diving was beautiful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tranquility, Romance, Adventure: What were Caribbean hotels like when you sat watching the sunset instead of cable TV? You can still find that Classic Caribbean at Anse Chastanet on St. Lucia’s quiet southwestern coast where two magical peaks, the Pitons, leap from the sea and the mountains are covered with luminous greenery.Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy believes passionately in nature. So he created a hotel that makes the foliage and the flowers, the perfumes and the peaks, the sea and the bird song an integral part of your vacation experience. The estate encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft sand beaches. The resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.With such a unique setting as his canvas, Nick Troubetzkoy was inspired to design a one -of-a-kind resort. A dozen rooms are tucked in behind the coconut palms that line the beach and the remainder tip toe up a flower decked hillside, taking advantage of the captivating scenery all around. Anse Chastanet’s ever growing art collection provides a visual feast of its own. There are impressive wooden sculptures and plaques, earthy burlap compositions, painted “sky ceilings” and vibrant acrylic paintings invoking memories of Matisse and Picasso.And while the sensuous seclusion of the rooms provides some guests with the perfect excuse for lolling away the day on the balcony, others head out to partake in the many activities on offer; yoga, snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis, sunset sailing, sea kayaking or jungle biking, hiking and bird-watching among the ruins of an 18th century colonial plantation. ... more less
