Just returned from having stayed at Anse Chastanet for 3 nights of our weeklong vacation (we also stayed 4 nights at Jade Mountain). Glad we started at Anse - as would have been a bit of a let down to do it the other way.
The resort overall is tremendous - the staff, location and food is some of the best we have experienced. The rooms at Anse are a bit on the rustic side, but as we did not spend a lot of time in room during day, we were fine with accomodations. It would be a plus if at some point when jade is completely finished, they will start updating at least the bathrooms in some of the older rooms on the hill. It took a day or so to get used to no air conditioning, but learned to place the standing fan inside netting at base of bed was the trick.
Even though we moved up the mountain to Jade for 4 nights - we continued to use restaurants, beach and activities at Anse Chastanet - the people, the food and the service are all great - very attentive, yet so friendly which made for a relaxing and memorable trip. Also if you scuba dive - they have a top notch facility.
Overall - Anse was a great experience - but I must say that if you can swing it - even for a couple nights - try Jade to get a real appreciation for all the resort has to offer.
- 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
