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.

Come here to unplug, unwind and be cared for. Come for the off-the-beach snorkelling and scuba. Come for the relaxed charm and sense of space. No need to feel the need to book anything in advance - the resort has so much space that there are always loungers on the beach (under thatched cover), there is always some availability on the next dive, there is a table in the restaurant, and there is always someone to help. The PADI Scuba facilities and team are very very good and priced at a very accessible level. The beach (actually both beaches) offer service where you lie/lounge. And sand and just a few stones run into the clear waters. This waterfront site and jungle surround is special. We did go up to Jade Mountain for cocktails a couple of time and dinner. Cocktails were a treat for sure. Dinner - it felt the kitchen was trying to hard and should aim simpler. Food at the Treehouse restaurant was always superb, as was the Indian cuisine at the Beach restaurant, using real charcoal tandoori oven and grill. The wines are horrendously expensive/marked up, whatever you drink, but Piton beer and cocktails much easier on the pocket. Rooms are a bit rustic, but spacious and with wonderful settings. We had two adjoining basis rooms and one premium. No need (and no choice of) air con. But the sounds and the breeze takes some getting used to. We went off site for Gros Piton walk/hike - spectacular and stretching. We really enjoyed Mano’s on-site Jungle Walk - quite sobering too to see the ruins of the old sugar mill and be stirred to consider the hardships two hundred years ago. Our last couple of days finished at Cap Maison, at the north of the island, with a transfer on the sail boat Good Expectations with Jus’ Sail. Cap was lovely and totally different, fully five star, but Anse C is the one we really want to come back to and spend time at. It is very special.

My husband and I returned last week after a fantastic 11 nights at Anse Chastenet. We had been persuaded to book after watching Jade Mountain on the BBCs Amazing Hotels- Life in the Lobby. I was worried, having seen so much on the hotel online whether it would not live up to the hype. Happily the hotel and holiday outdid our expectations in so many ways. From the moment we arrived we were super impressed with how personal the service was. After completing the paperwork we were offered to look at two rooms. The first, near the Treehouse was beautiful and even in the dark we could spot the top of the Piton. We then walked up the hill ( we were happy to do this after a long flight) and were shown Room 9005. WOW!! The suite is huge - two bedrooms and bathrooms and a massive open living area complete with sofas and sun beds with a picture perfect view across to the Pitons! This was our room for the next 11 nights! Yes - the rooms are rustic but this is part of the charm. We even enjoyed the 400 ‘steps’ from the beach! The hotel is in an upmarket bracket and could be pretentious- it is most definitely not. EVERY member of staff was so helpful and so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent. I have never taken so many photos of food on a holiday. Loved the cocoa tea at breakfast. The beachside food was exceptional and beautifully presented. The evening meals in the Treehouse, especially the daily menu, were delicious. Cocktails were also great and made to order - especially loved the mojito and Coco Doux. We also did many fun activities- some complimentary and others at a reasonable cost. We did the following: - Rum Mixology - Chocolate Sensory - Chocolate Lab - GROS Piton Climb - Jazzy Sunset Cruise - LIONFISH meal - Petit Piton Snorkel - Plantation Walk with Meno - Jade Mountain Club Cocktails and Meal All superb - all recommended! Most were arranged with Guest Services before we arrived and a full timetable given to us on arrival. In addition a huge thank you to owner Karolin. I had seen on Facebook that they were thinking of doing a complimentary art class with the talented Sakey. I asked on arrival and I think it wasn’t due to happen until the New Year. However they bent over backwards to arrange this for us. What a wonderful afternoon and Sakey kindly gave us his painting at the end. We also loved the snorkelling- we brought our own masks (although they were available) and easily got fins and life vest from the Scuba shop. The snorkelling was so easy from the beach and we saw so many fish, squid, eels, LIONFISH, octopus and turtles. The reef was pretty and healthy. There is so much more I could say - if you are thinking of booking, don’t hesitate, do it!

What a fabulous stay. The highlights were the diving for my husband and our son ( really built his confidence with first dive a walk in from the shore ) - very professional outfit and the snorkelling off the beach for me. I saw a turtle and a family of squid every day with great equipment borrowed from the hotel. Felt very safe - covid measures wise ( they can easily help you do your tests on site and printed off documents for us to fly ) and lovely staff. We really enjoyed the mixology class and the trip to the volcanic mud bath and my skin is now super soft. Our son loved running up the piton with his guide too. It was wonderful sleeping under our mosquito net with the winds blowing in our room and waking to little birds around us. A stand out was the leaving Day . The first hotel who have offered us a room to change in for the day and had everything in place before we even asked. Recommend the all inclusive package. The food was wonderful.

Just coming to the end of a two week stay. This is not in any way a typical luxury hotel and it is showing some wear and tear. But if you want cleaning air conned rooms then go somewhere else! This is a charming place which is ultra relaxing. Rooms are more like private homes and no air on was not an issue. Food was all excellent and staff great. Beach is good and beach service. Is superb. COVID testing provided in a very organised way even when I’m changed regs at short notice. Only niggle - knowing that just above you there is an even better hotel at Jade Mountain!

I spent a week at Anse Chastenet with a scuba diving group in November. If I could give half stars, it's really more 3.5 than 4. The surroundings are really beautiful, there is no doubt about that. But the property itself is aging and needs a refresh. I had a room that was open to the jungle and the mosquito netting just fell down one night. They repaired it but it wasn't ideal and I woke up to a giant beetle crawling across my forearm one night. The food was inconsistent...some good, some not so much. The service was inconsistent as well though I have to say the van drivers were all around great. The stairs are a lot and it got annoying after a few days. Overall, the setting and landscaping are stunning but I just don't see this as a top tier resort.
