We had our plane tickets to St. Lucia back in Febuary 2012. For the past several months we came back to Trip Advisor to search for the perfect place. I would have to say we won the lottery. When you read about the steps at Anse Chastanet, I would agree that yes, there are a lot of steps but I am the kind of person that is happy to be able to take the steps. If not, take the shuttle. We took the shuttle once from out beachfront villa, 10D, THE BEST ONE, and the shuttle came in less than 2 minutes.
The place was very clean and the employees are happy to help you at any time. I must say we almost went to Jalousie. Just for the heck of it we took a water taxi over to Jalousie and was THRILLED we stayed at Anse Chastanet. Jalousie did look very nice but it seemed more uptight. Not more upperclass, but it just seemed like you might want to get dressed to go to their beach, very posh. Food at Anse Chastanet was great, bed was very comfortable, large bathrooms and great beach, in fact, I think the best beach I had seen on the island. If you can afford to do so, BOOK A ROOM AT JADE, for the last night or two. If you cannot, please take a tour and you will have a goal to save for the next year to go back and spend some time at Jade Mountain. So, even in the pouring rain, everyday, this place was a gem and still did a lot and had a wonderful time. Oh, and the Thursday evening Jazz cruise was worth it!
- 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
