My husband and I stayed at Jade Mountain in January 2007. We arrived late into Hewanorra Airport. We must have been the last people to arrive that day because the airport was empty. Needless to say, going through customs was non-existent. We boarded a mini-bus that was waiting for us for Anse Chastanet - Jade Mountain.
When we made our reservation we decided to stay in a Sun room. There are "Star", "Moon", "Sun", and "Sky" sanctuaries (that's what they call the rooms) to choose from. Each one is decorated differently and offers real outdoor luxury. No phone, no television. Internet at the lobby.
The trip from the airport was tedious due to the curvy and rustic roads. If you arrive late at night, you will swear you are being taken into the jungle an dropped off. After passing through a well guarded gate, we finally made it to Jade Mountain.
We were escorted to our room after check-in. We walked to the fifth level of the resort. We proceeded down a long suspended concrete bridge to the room. When the door opened we were blown away. Even at night we could see the beauty of the furnishings, exotic flooring and glass tiles. And just as promised there was an infinity pool right in the room.
Our luggage arrived and we settled in. The thing you must get used to first is that there are only three sides to the room. The fourth side is open to the elements. Incredible open-air concept! We did have a mosquito net over the bed to protect us at night. We had 9 ceiling fans above us rotating at all times to circulate the tropical breeze. There are also louvers on the windows on the opposite side of the room to let air flow. And don't worry about privacy. And you are up so high that no one will ever know you're there. We never knew another soul was around while in our room. The bathroom is out of this world...includes open shower and tub with chromotherapy. The infinity pool also has colored lighting for night....very romantic.
We woke the next morning to the most beautiful site. The Pitons were right there in front of us....WOW!
We enjoyed the entire week. Ate at both Piti Piton and Treehouse Restaurant (very delicious food) and ordered room service often because we just didn't want to leave our "sanctuary". You hang a little pouch on the door with your order and service people come by about every 15 minutes to check.
We frequented Club Jade Mountain on the next to top level in the evenings to enjoy a glass of wine or a snack. The very top level is an excellent place to enjoy the sunset. Lots of comfy outdoor furniture to sit on and just enjoy life. There is also a hole cut into the center of the top level so you can peer down to the community infinity pool inside Club Jade Mountain....sounds amazing, doesn't it...it is!
There are shuttles that run from Jade Mountain down to the beach and back because it is somewhat of a trek. Great beachside dining at Trou au Diable. Awesome!! Water taxis will take you to Castries for shopping and siteseeing.
You have the option of taking a helicopter from the resort back to the airport....great way to see some secluded parts of the island. The resort has a landing area onsite.
We plan to return soon because when we were there the fountains were not yet finished, but we could tell that upon completion the entire place was going to be breathtaking.
