Me and my husband flew to st lucia for our honeymoon to experience the caribbean , this hotel was amazing and the views from the hotel was beauitful , the hotel was exclusive and an adults resort, it has its own two beachs and also scuba diving . On arrival the hotel welcomed us with a nice re- freshing drink and a great service from the stuff , they upgraded us to nice beach front villa which was lovely and on arrival some champagne for us .
The downsides of this hotel is its quite far from the airport and you end up paying a lot of money for there own shuttles the hotel picks you up but charges you a great deal for it , i think they should review this considering you spend alot on the resort shuttles should be free , also the journey from the aiport to the hotel was fine until we got close to Anse and the last part was very horrifiying and rocky journey to get up to the hotel , i actually got scared of the journey and i wouldnt like to do that again even though once you got to the hotel it was worth it :)
The hotel is up hill so the main bar and restaurants if your villa is near the beach front you have plenty steps every evening to get up there and back down again , the rooms have no radio or Tv or phone , this is nice as you want to escape this sort of thing but on certain points when you needed to contact the reception you had to leave your room to get to the phone to speak to them .
the waters are lovely and we even got to see a sea turtle which was a great experience , i would advise to stay away from the city center soufriere i wouldnt adivise going down there , locals dont leave you alone and also i felt very uncomfortable with how many people was approaching us to sell things and also the bars or places to eat there wasnt welcoming at all or clean , we sat in one bar and the service was very bad with no smile , i understand they are trying to bring money into this city but i wouldnt advise it to be honest ,i couldnt wait for the water taxi to come back and pick us up to go back to our resort .
Jungle our hotel water taxi was a great guy and his services was always with plenty detail and a great smile :)
it was an amazing place ,and me and my partner enjoyed our stay very much , The stuff was great with excellent service they also joined in with the dancing in the evenings when the local bands was playing . I would say they need to arrange alot more evening events as there isnt much to do in the evenings and i wouldnt stay longer than 7 nights .
all in all good experience for us .
- 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
