We have recently had the pleasure of staying at Anse Chastanet in St.Lucia! What a truly unique - and intriguing! - place. We have found Anse Chastanet to be everything we wanted it to be, with the possible exception of the weather!
There were a number of rainy days which seemed a bit unusual for this time of the year. We had a problem with our luggage and we were very impressed with the efficiency the reception staff took over and followed up on our behalf. There are a number of duty managers who were delightful to speak to, our favorite was Peter John Paul. We try to never compare the various hotels we have stayed in as clearly every hotel usually has its strengths and its weaknesses. The same goes for entire destinations. For us,St.Lucia and Anse Chastanet were a most
satisfactory choice of destination and hotel- and - we might even return once again (which is unusual for us). We enjoyed the food and felt that a great effort was undertaken to produce a good variety. We appreciated the vegetarian choices. There is a British chef and there also is an Indian chef called Hemant whom we happened to meet. He told us that the hotel will soon introduce an Indian theme menu in one of their restaurants for the evenings and it sounded all very enticing. We did not know of the historical connection between India and St.Lucia. Our room was at beach level. Even though these rooms do not have an oceanview, we enjoyed the location so near the beach very much and would choose it over the hillside accommodation even though we heard the views were marvelous. Again, likes and dislikes are a highly individual matter! Our room was very spacious and had interesting works of art. In the mornings, we just sat on the verandah for a while reading. There are various activities on offer but we ended up relaxing mostly. We did go on the sunset cruise which was a very nice diversion. We heard the diving school was excellent. We did not dive but snorkeled the reef right off the beach - very enjoyable. I frequented the spa quite a bit and found every treatment professional and above all relaxing. The spa is near the beach and it has a no frills approach just like the rest of the resort. All in all, the beautiful surroundings, attention to detail and level of service we experienced made this one of the more memorable vacation experiences. We would not hesitate to recommend the island and Anse Chastanet to our friends and have done so already.

This is probably the most beautiful place we have stayed in our extensive travels. The 2 bedroom suite overlooked the Pitons and the Bay, with finches visiting the Open Air living area from the treetops. Absence of A/C not a problem this time of year. Incredible diving, excellent spa service, friendly, gracious, happy (but slow) staff. On the downside, the climb from the beach to the resort will be a challenge to those who aren't fit, and this resort is not for those who like to explore surrounding areas with ease; roads are treacherous for rental cars and cab transport off the resort must be arranged by the hotel. This left few options for dining off-site, and the options on site were delicious, but pricey.

Visited Anse Chastanet in late January 2006. Given that this resort is supposed to be at the level of Peter Island, Biras Creek and Curtain Bluff, we were very disappointed. The food was mediocre and the service slow and passive. Our room and bathroom really needed renovation - especially the bathroom! We could not believe the condition of that room given the reputation of this hotel.
The common areas were badly in need of repair - a form letter from the manager was distributed, explaining that renovations were under way sometime "soon" but in the meantime we noticed that they were busy building a new wing to the hotel. No pool, no fitness room, one tennis court, small spa... and really average or below average cuisine - all made us feel we had made a terrible mistake picking this all inclusive over the other 3 mentioned above.

i've been meaning to write this for a while. my husband and i went this past july for 3 nights. we split our stay with the jalousie. i dont have enough room here to say all the wonderful things about this place. we were upgraded to a villa "LaBatterie" which is just outside of the resort. we were given a jeep for our personal use and a stocked 'fridge and a personal cook for breakfast. This was a 3bed/3bath house w/pool, courtyard and pond on the side of the mountain with the Best view of the pitons. it rained one full day we were their and we didn't even care, thats how fantastic this place was. the staff & management were always very friendly and always asking if we needed anything. the food does get boring & found it better at Jalousie. The steps/hill were not bad at all and if we ever get to go back to St.lucia, we will only stay here and maybe this time stay on the resort. i dont think we'll get that lucky twice. email if you have any questions.

I stated at Anse Chastanet for a week last summer during the middle of June. We thought that we were going at the best possible time but when we got there we found out that this was the beginning of their rainy season. The first 3 days it rained but we were there to scuba dive and going to get wet anyway. The scuba diving was excellent! Our dive masters where wonderful and you couldn't ask for a better friend. Callistus and Montgomery were the best!! The only thing I didn't like about the diving is that you are not allowed, by St. Lucia law, to dive without a local dive master guide. This is a law they put in place to help protect the reef. So there is no open unlimited shore diving like you can find in other places. The food was excellent. The rooms were great but on the 4th day it stopped raining and that is where the trouble came in. We never realized that the rain had not only been keeping down the heat but also keeping the bugs away. It jumped from about 80 to 85 up to 95 in an hour and it stayed there. At night it might have dropped to 90 but not sure if that is true. There is no AC in any of the rooms, NONE so the rooms were built with as many windows as possible. here come the mosquitos! You have a ceiling fan and it helps as long as you are sitting under it but get into the bed under the mosquito net and there is no air movement at all. And don't roll over with your back or arm aginst the netting because the mosquitos will have a field day bitting you through the net. You could not wait to get back in the water to about 80 feet with no wet suit so you were finally able to cool down just a tad. But, if you swim past a vent from the volcano the water temp would jump up 10 degrees and there went the cool enjoyment you were loving. One last note. Anse Chastanet is built on a hillside. A huge hillside so in order to get from your room to the beach or the resturant/bar you have to hike down or climb up. Not just a couple of steps but I think it was 110 steps from the beach to the resturant which is only half way up and it was another 90 steps up the road to our room and the steps are not all the same. One step might be 3 inches high but the next one will be 14 or 15 inches tall and everyone is different. This makes it very difficult in both directions. We did found out that you could have someone at the bar located on the beach to call for Alexander to come and pick you up in the mini van. This added a $5 tip for every trip up back up to your room so he would drive you around the back side of the hill to your room. We learned to walk down and ride up. It cost a few bucks but you were not climbing and frying in the heat. I would love to dive with Callistus and Montgomery again but I don't think that I will ever stay at Anse Chastamet again. Everyone there was really nice and friendly and the was food great but no AC, the bugs and having to climb the moutain every time you wanted to do anything was just not the perfect experience that we paid about $5,000 per person to enjoy and that did not include the bar bill or rides up the hill. A lot to pay for great diving.
