We honeymooned at Jade Mountain for a week and enjoyed the room/"sanctuary" (JC5). The views were majestic. The food and group activities (walks/sailing/etc.) were enjoyable. The open air floor plan is definitely unique, i.e. birds in your room every morning, but that is worth the experience.
However there were a few things that we disliked about our experience: 1) the Butler service provided for each room was miserable and became a burden on our stay, 2) the food is expensive but that is to be expected, 3) the beach wasn't great but that was acceptable because you were likely to stay in your sanctuary anyways.
Regarding the Butler service, we believe our butlers (Kerrian and Fillena) were not the norm. Other guests raved about their butlers. Upon checking out we complained about the butler service and were pleasantly surprised that the butler manager, Al, came to visit us to discuss our concerns personally.
A couple additional positives are the amenities (gym, spa, rooftop lounge and nightly bands). Lastly, the snorkeling in the immediate area was good.
