Hotel Anse Chastanet Resort Soufriere
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 the 4-star 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. Not only do you get a World Heritage Site anchored by the twin peaks on land, the resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.
And while the sensuous seclusion of the 49 individually designed 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. The less actively inclined simply do nothing, lie on the beach or get pampered in the resort’s spa.
Hotel Jade Mountain Resort Soufriere
Rising majestically above its sister resort Anse Chastanet, the 5-star Jade Mountain is a cornucopia of organic architecture celebrating St Lucia’s stunning scenic beauty. The 29 luxury suites are called sanctuaries, sweeping spaces where bedroom, living area and a private infinity pool glide into one another to form platforms floating out into nature. With the fourth wall entirely absent, Jade Mountain’s sanctuaries are stage-like settings from which to embrace the full glory of St Lucia’s Pitons World Heritage Site and the Caribbean Sea. Jade Mountain has set a new standard in the Caribbean whether it is for modern design, luxury living, unique resort experiences or guest service.
Wrapped around an infinity pool with a kaleidoscope of colors, the Jade Mountain Club restaurant caters exclusively to residents, celebrating James Beard Award winner Chef’s Jade Cuisine. Hovering in space above the Jade Mountain Club is the Celestial Terrace, perfect for sunset cocktails or star-gazing.
A range of spa services can be enjoyed in the privacy of the Jade Mountain sanctuaries or at Kai en Ciel, Jade Mountain’s boutique spa and fitness studio. The resort major domos and a dedicated resort team ensure outstanding service around the clock.
Guests may enjoy the exclusivity and privacy of Jade Mountain plus access to Anse Chastanet’s facilities: nestled amidst a tropical estate with two beaches bordering coral reefs, Anse Chastanet is in the heart of the island’s marine reserves.
The active will enjoy the resort’s range of adventure facilities including 4 restaurants & 3 bars, professional spa, PADi 5* scuba centre, water sports, 12 miles of biking and hiking trails, sailing yacht, 3 boutiques, library and art gallery.
