My husband and I were married at the Anse Chastanet Treehouse overlooking the Carribbean Sea. We had the most wonderful experience. The rooms were clean and we had a fantastic view of the Pitons and the Sea. We went walking on the trail at Anse Mamin, rested on the beach, enjoyed beautiful sunsets, and went for a relaxing sunset sail. The resort has the best service of any we've ever been and we plan to be back annually.

iI've been to Anse Chastanet hotel to times in 12 years and I have sent dozens of people--ceo's, publishers, sports stars to the place and they are still thanking me.
To me the place is heaven on earth--see my web site [---]for many photos of my adventures there.

It may be apocryphal, but the word is that when the intrepid star of the Indiana Jones movies pitched up here he almost never made it. Harrison Ford knows a thing or two about rough terrain but when the fearless actor saw the approach to Anse Chastanet he threatened to turn back.The road twisting along a precipitous cliff edge in south west St.Lucia is only part of the adventure though for some it can be a rude awakening.
it's an extraordinary establishment on several counts, not least a year round occupancy of over 90%, testimony to its enduring appeal and charm.First class service, by no means a given in the Caribbean, from a dedicated long term team, and consistently ingenious "tropical world" cuisine masterminded by west Yorkshire's finest John Bentham in a staggering mountain rainforest and beach setting are the defining hallmarks. (The resort's visionary owner architect Nick Troubetzkoy prefers roadkill but manicou stew has not yet made the menu) Excellence is one thing, maintaining it quite another, and 49 idiosyncratic villas are now augmented by 30 new suites with vast infinity edge pools at Jade Mountain Retreat close by. Stunning vistas of the twin pyramidal peaks of the Pitons are a feature, and nowhere is marred by aircon, telephone or TV; sounds are restricted to the mountain breeze and birdsong; Birdwatching is up front and personal at Anse Chastanet--at breakfast the Lesser Antillean Bullfinch, the male as black as coal with a crimson bib, fixes you with a quizzical stare then pinches sugar sachets from under your nose; Bananaquits follow suit but all defer to the evil eyed Grackle. Miniature water pistols come with the cutlery but hey, birds need breakfast too.
Hiking, mountain biking,and diving on a world class offshore reef are more energetic diversions but the hotel's beguiling ambience is the real draw.Having travelled the region extensively for 30 years, this is a singular place which never palls.

My husband and I decided to get married in St Lucia. We did a lot of research on different resorts and at the end choose Anse Chastanet. We are both from different countries and had been a part for a while, so we were looking for quiet and magnificent place where we could be reunited. We got everything what we were looking for and even more. Our holiday and the wedding day couldn’t be better. We stayed in Pintsetia 3B room with ocean and Pitons view on different sides. We got a plate of Caribbean fruits to welcome us. We used almost all our vouchers that were included in the package. All organized excursions were excellent and very interesting. The Staff at the resort, tour guides and instructors were very friendly and helpful. The restaurants offered different food everyday and everything at the highest standard.

Wedding. I started our wedding day with 4 hours pampering at the SPA. The service was excellent from Swedish massage, through manicure, facial and my hairdo. I have also received 20% discount on my purchase. We choose beach for our wedding location. Peter, the manager, came personally to take me to the place where ceremony took place. I got beautiful bouquet made of Caribbean flowers. The ceremony was held by local minister who was very friendly and had personalized speech. This really made us feel special. After the ceremony we had chocolate cake and champagne. We made few friends on holiday and they all came to share with us this special day. We were a little sad not to have our family with us but the Staff did everything what they could to make us feel special and it all worked out very well. We also booked dinner at the beach on our wedding day. It was unforgettable experience worth spending extra money. The next day we took private sunset cruise which was amazing and very romantic with complementary bottle of champagne. I can truly say that Anse Chastanet provides very unique wedding experience opposite to other resorts that held few weddings a day.

We definitely are planning to go back ….

My wife and I were guests of Anse Chastanet in January of this year. Would we go back? Definitely!!! The service was excellent, the food amazing and the location with the views to the Pitons is breathtaking. We had a great time chatting with the locals and staff. The St. Lucians are very friendly. Our stay overall was exceptional. We have heard that the owner is a character, but extremely concerned about the quality of stay for guests at his resort. The staff seemed to reflect this by being concerned for our safety and well-being.
Should next winter come too soon and be bleak and dreary, Anse Chastanet will be high on our list for a vacation in paradise.

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
