Just returned from anse 21st feb to 26th feb. This was our second visit and therefor we were slightly aprehensive as it had been 8 years since our last. But everything was just as good if not better than our last visit. We spent the first 3 nights in a superior room on the hill overlooking the pitons and the sea and the last 2 in a deluxe room on the beach. Both are great but the latter was fabulous with even its own hammock and it also ment we avoided all those steps for a couple of days. We were on half board and the food was good although the chef appeared to have a strange liking to wasabi on his menu!! The beach is great with drink service and food service being brought to you at your beck and call. Snorkelling directly off the beach is a great bonus and the reason for our return. There is building work above the resort but we did not hear anything during our 5 night stay. This will be finished in sept/oct. There are plenty off trips to chose from if you feel like being a bit adventourous, but as this was our 3rd visit to st lucia we just enjoyed the sea sand and sun. I highly recommend a visit and hopefully will return again in the future.
- 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
