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.

My boyfriend and I were staying at Anse for our 11 year anniversary and I have to say the highlights for us were the incredibly friendly staff, the snorkeling and we particularly loved spending our days at Anse Mamin Beach! The entire staff was so lovely and really took the time to interact with us and provide a wonderful experience! The food overall at Anse was an 8/10 with breakfast being a steadfast winner along with the burger over at Anse Mamin beach! If you are looking for a truly incredible culinary experience head up to Jade Mountian for dinner! We did the AI plan at Anse and the surcharge was WELL worth the quality of food and level of service you will experience! So good that we went twice because it was genuinely that fabulous! While at the property we explored the nearby sulfur springs, and botanical garden. We also did a chocolate sensory experience which was both fun and educational! The staff conducting the Chocolate experience at Jade Mountian were incredible and their hard work is such an incredible form of art! Lastly, we did a sunset sail on the Suzie Q one evening of our stay. Captian Kerwin and Thaddeus made our trip so lovely! Being a sailor myself, being on the water was immaculate and the boat was extremely comfortable! I cannot express how kind Kerwin and Thaddeus were and they showed us true St. Lucian hospitality! We had such a lovely time I wish we would have booked another sail and we absolutely would have had we stayed longer! 10/10 get out on the water if you're visiting! I would absolutely recommend the fast track at the airport if you are driving from UVF to the resort it's absolutely worth it! Had we done anything differently it would have been booking at least 1-2 days at Jade Mountian for the FULL experience. Other than that we had a lovely stay and hope to return in years to come! Thank you to the entire staff for such an amazing stay! Jenna & Jesse (JJ)

Great Honeymoon destination for you and your significant other with a lot of extra activities aside from your the usual lazing underneath a cabana with tropical drinks. Service is top-notch, they pay attention to details. Food is amazing, it's all organically grown on their on farm/estate, and their scuba center offer's many outdoor activities from snorkeling, kayaking, to night scuba diving. All in all it was worth every penny spent. Now, if you are looking for a party resort where you can be loud, drunk, obnoxious, and play loud music in your room, please look somewhere else as this is not the resort for you. If you are looking for A/C, a TV, and easy access to your room, again this is not the resort for you. There are stairs. A lot of them.

What an amazing resort. We spent a week here…….the place is stunning. Great views, great service, great food, great snorkelling. The food was amazing day in and day out. We also paid the supplement and visited Jade Mountain one night and I have to say it was simply outstanding. The staff were all exceptionally helpful and polite, in particular I have to mention Parker (The Barman) who I asked for a gin cocktail . He created a gin, cucumber and lime drink which I ended up drinking for the rest of the holiday. Also Janice who works in the Treehouse and was always very nice. With regards to the snorkelling, I spent a lot of time in the water at both beaches. The fish life was stunning and I have numerous videos of a massive array of fish, stingrays, turtles and the jury is out on whether I have a small shark on film. Overall there is no way we could not recommend this resort.

Faultless from start to finish. We enjoyed 9 nights at Anse Chastanet to belatedly celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. Our room 4C had the most spectacular view of the pitons in one direction and over to the beach in the other, with a vast outdoor terrace containing sunloungets, a dining table and comfortable seating for relaxing. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, food was great , housekeeping to high standard and we just enjoyed the feeling of being at one with nature here. Lots of steps, be warned! We are very fit but they were a challenge in the heat, but we never succumbed to the shuttle service and plodded up and down several times a day Go for the all inclusive meal plan if you enjoy your food as it is quite expensive to pay as you go.

We came to St. Lucia and Anse Chastenet in particular for the snorkeling and we were not disappointed. Beautiful clear water and tons of different fish. The food was gourmet and excellent and the staff was very helpful amd friendly. Thank you to the shuttle drivers Mervin, Orion and Tamar for your service when we did not want to take the many steps to and from the beach. We also spoke to the property's General manager Michael, nice fellow. Be aware that there is no AC and yes the tree frogs are quite loud, but we were prepared for that and found it to be a unique experience. I felt like I was in another world, what an adventure.

We had a fantastic week at Anse Chastenet. The staff were all really helpful and friendly throughout, including the pre arrival team. The food was very good and they handled our daughters dietary needs (gluten free, egg free, no spices, no citrus) brilliantly with great alternatives and some specials just for her. We did several of the complimentary activities, including a plantation walk with Meno, chocolate tasting and an art class, and they were all excellent. The beach set up is excellent, especially for anyone who wants to be able to stay in the shade, and the beach staff are very attentive. The snorkelling both straight into the marine reserve at one end of the beach and over coral and sea grass from the beach at the other end were absolutely marvellous and we did snorkel with a turtle in the sea grass. We did two excursions organised by the hotel which were very good. We also hired their motorised catamaran for a private combined snorkel, coastal and sunset cruise. The staff on the boat (captain, snorkel leader, chef and barman) were all great and we were lucky enough to be joined by dolphins for a while on the way back up the coast. This cruise was a holiday highlight for all of us. We stayed in the beachside deluxe rooms which had air conditioning and were very spacious and comfortable. We had some mobility issues so made use of the free shuttle from the beach to the breakfast and dining area up the hill. Just a case of a quick call to reception on the mobile phone provided and then a very short wait.

We decided to push the boat out a little for our honeymoon and were so pleased we did as our stay at Anse Chastanet was wonderful. We stayed in Tamarind Room 6B, a Superior Hillside room which was spacious and very comfortable. The view of the Pitons and sea were amazing, especially so at sunset. The walk up the steps from the beach could be difficult for some, but we enjoyed the challenge and did not need to use the free shuttle service that is offered. The beaches are both superb, very clean, fine sand and plenty of loungers with thatched parasols for guests. Beach service for food and drinks is superb and it took us a few days to feel comfortable placing the marker flag in the sand for the service staff to ask our order, but they were all wonderful, happy, and smiling and very efficient bearing in mind the trudging through the sand they do all day. Anse Mamin is quieter, and we recommend a stroll following the tracked paths through the plantation behind the beach followed by a refreshing drink when you return to the beach. We enjoyed several yoga sessions both in the morning and the evening with Nelson in the Shala on the beach. We snorkelled every day, both at the north and south ends of the beach as the marine life is amazing, so many different varieties of fish and coral. We ventured out to a Whale watching experience but unfortunately, we did not see any whales, but we were entertained by the dolphins which was fun. We also took a very enjoyable tour to the Tet Paul Nature Trail, the Sulphur baths and refreshing waterfall to wash off the mud, followed by the Botanical Gardens and Diamond Waterfalls. We also enjoyed just chilling out reading our books on the beach to unwind from the stresses of work and Covid restrictions. Anse Chastanet’s Covid safety procedures are to very high standards and very reassuring . All staff around the resort including on the beach wear a mask, tables and menus are sanitised after guests have finished and guests are encouraged to wear a mask when entering restaurants, bars and reception area. Breakfast is from a menu and the buffet section is served by staff wearing gloves to avoid any cross transmissions by guests. The staff are all amazing, it would be unfair to pick any out individually as all who we met greeted us with a smile and were happy to help us. The all inclusive was excellent with a choice of restaurants and extensive menus. The establishment was not an open buffet but à la carte with waiter service. We were made to feel very special at Anse Chastanet and look forward to returning sometime.

The thing about some great St Lucia resorts is when you get to the top of the driveway or the approach road, you're still only about half way there. Anse Chastanet is an example - you turn onto the road coming out of Soufriere and then you have to slow way down as you leave the rest of the world behind and enter the world of Anse Chastanet. It's very much worth it. There are two levels to Anse Chastanet when it comes to the rooms - there's the reception area with the restaurant and bar and sitting area and then the hillside rooms that range upward from there and then there's the beach level rooms down below. You can reach your room by walking there - in both cases - or you can take advantage of their very attentive and excellent shuttle service. We chose the beach level and the shuttles were easy and involved waiting only two or three minutes - we usually walked part way (level ground) and waited for the shuttle on a nice bench in a gazebo and watched the birds and flowers while we waited. We often took the steps down from the restaurant and reception area but the steps up again were challenging - especially near the end of our time on St Lucia and after all the hundreds of steps we'd already experienced. Our room was wonderful - although it really is a "beach level" room as there was no view of the ocean at all. There were, however, marvelous views of all the trees and flowers and the birds and the frogs singing at night. And from the right spot you could look 'way up above and see Jade Mountain, the sister property, like something out of Star Wars or Star Trek clinging to the mountain high above you, perhaps thinking about taking off and flying away. The room had a truly marvelous patio area with hammock, couch, easy chairs - lots of space and quiet (beyond the birdsong). Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was great - my only caveat was the step up to the area with the shower on one side and the toilet on the other. (Talk about sitting on the throne....) The beach level rooms come with an iPad that tells you all about the resort and is a great clock when left alone for a while. Also you get a cell phone to talk with Reception or call for a shuttle. There's a fine open air restaurant down on the beach - Indian cuisine at night and the usual salads and sandwiches at lunchtime - all very good. The restaurant - Treehouse - has two levels to it, upper (main - with a rainforest view) and lower (entrance to the left a bit, kind of a terrace or balcony with beautiful ocean views). Breakfast is wonderful - to order main offerings and an all included served buffet with a terrific range of options. Lunches and dinners also served there - very nice. Service is professional and very good as is the food. We paid a premium over the meal plan to eat one night up at Jade Mountain, the sister resort. It's something else with "sanctuaries" as opposed to "rooms" each reached by suspended walkways. The view from Jade Club cannot possibly be bettered - anywhere. You're looking across the water at the Pitons - if you're looking for a romantic setting, you can't do any better. And the food up there is absolutely top class - of a quality you'd find at any best-in-town restaurant in your favorite city. There are lots of options also right at hand - the bird watching walk is an experience - walking both beaches at the resort - Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin - two hours of all the birds and also all the plants and trees as well as the history of the area. There's a dive shop right there just past the beach restaurant on your left. We first found out about Anse Chastanet when we vacationed on this magnificent island - the people we've met as warm and welcoming as the island - nine years ago. Took us awhile to get back (especially after the last three years with everything shut down from covid) but this time we included a stay at Anse Chastanet and it was terrific.

2 adults, 1 15 year old daughter. Upon arrival we were upgraded from a std beachside room with an extra bed to a superior hillside room with two king size bedrooms, one with ensuite the other with a separate bathroom. The balcony was around 30ft in length with views of the pitons to the left and down to the beach on the right, glorious. Attention to detail is a major plus point to this hotel. There are 2 restaurants at beach level and 2 at reception level. The menus are varied and food is excellent. Staff were able to offer our fussy daughter alternative options to the menu. I would recommend selecting the all inclusive board if your finances can stretch this far as we totalled up our bill on one indulgent day (2 not vary alcohol indulgent adults and 1 fifteen year old at c£300 to £350) . Beach was lovely with helpers to deliver towels to your selected beds under the straw canopies. The use of a yellow flag beckons a member of staff who will take your food and drink order and deliver it to your sunbeds. In the morning a fruit kebab was delivered to all and pampering in the afternoon consisted of an ice lolly and a scented cold towel with a spray with eucalyptus mist. There are 2 beaches but entry to the sea is quite steep so you need to be wary for youngsters. Basically nothing seemed too much of an ask. Tip: if on AI be sure to pop up to the Jade Mountain top bar for a sunset drink where you can sign to your room at Anse.
