Anse Chastanet is a wonderful resort in a spectacular location overlooking a marine preserve. My wife and I stayed in a Hillside deluxe room. The accomodations were spacious and nicely decorated with indigenous art. We had a huge living area open on oneside where we could see the water and a separate bedroom and bathroom.
We opted for a meal plan with breakfast and dinner. It was well worth the expense, since all of the restaurants at the resort had exquisitely prepared and served meals. The number of restaurants (5) meant there was a wide variety cuisines.
We spent most of our time enjoying the beaches at Anse Chastanet and at Anse Mamin. We especially enjoyed being able to snorkel right off the beach where we found a wide variety of coral and fish species.
We did take one excursion to the Sulphur Springs at the drive-in volcano, the Diamond Waterfall and Botanical Garden, as well as a short stop at the resort's farm which provides fresh fruits and vegetables.
On our last night, we stayed at Jade Mountain, which is a one of kind extraordinary resort on the top of the mountain owned and operated by the same folks. We stayed in a pool sanctuary room, which had magnificent views of the Pitons from the personal infinity pool in the room. The Jade Mountain Club restaurant was the equal in food and service of any restaurant in New York.
This is a world class resort with one of a kind architecture designed by the owner.
Anse Chastanet is a wonderful place to kick back and relax on vacation or to spend your time engaged in endless water sports.
- 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
