We came here for our 10th Wedding Anniversary after being recommended by my parents who had come for their anniversary 8 years previous. It is in a beautiful setting overlooking a small bay with the Pitons behind. If you want state of the art hotel rooms with air coditioning, TV and telephone and large swimming pool in the complex and local wildlife nearby in a park, This is NOT for you ! The rooms are found in the jungle hills with all the flora and fauna right there with you and decorated with beautiful art work but no technology! The Tree house, New tree house and Petit Piton Restaurants are all fabulously decorated with art on the walls and sculptures and serve amazing food including a vegetarian menu. They are situated up high overlooking the bay. Down the many steps to the beach you will find another restaurant which in the evening has a Grill menu or Apsara, which is a mix of Caribbean and Indian food. There is also another bay where there is a grill at lunchtime and a bar where the cocktails are fabulous ! The staff are the most friendly and helpful we have met in a long time. It was so peaceful, great if you just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is an active resort too, if you want it to be, partly because of all the steps ! There are Yoga and fitness classes during the day on the beach at the pavillion. Kayaks, mountain biking, snorkling and scuba diving are also available. Could not fault the resort at all. We had an amazing time and would love to go back soon.
- 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
