What were Caribbean hotels like before trade winds were replaced by blasts of air conditioning, when morning exercise was a walk on the beach and when you sat watching the sunset instead of cable TV? You can still find that Classic Caribbean at Anse Chastanet Resort 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.

Overview



What were Caribbean hotels like before trade winds were replaced by blasts of air conditioning, when morning exercise was a walk on the beach and when you sat watching the sunset instead of cable TV? You can still find that Classic Caribbean at Anse Chastanet Resort 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 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. He was committed to an environmentally conscious development before "green" became fashionable.

A dozen rooms are tucked in behind the coconut palms that line the beach and the remainder tiptoe up a flower decked hillside. To make the most of the panoramic views and the refreshing tradewinds octagonal whitewashed cottages come with wraparound flower draped balconies and louvered windows.

Extra-large deluxe and premium suites underscore the visionary, innovative, sometimes whimsical side of Nick Troubetzkoy: in one suite, the balcony is built around a full-grown red gommier tree; in another a flamboyant tree drapes its red blossoms around the balcony. Some have their 4th wall open entirely to the vistas, yet are completely private.

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.

The less actively inclined simply do nothing, lie on the beach or get pampered in the resort's spa, Kai Belté. There is a casual beachside bar and restaurant; on the hillside, a panoramic hillside lounge and two treehouses provide the romantic setting for candlelit dinners, with musical backdrops by local entertainers. Tranquility, Romance and Adventure at Anse Chastanet.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   Best hotel I have ever been to. Everyone is unbelievably nice. There are so many tours and there is always something to do like scuba diving and snorkeling. Their food is so well prepared. The beach is so calm with employees walking around helping you. There is no A.C in your hotel room and the WiFi isn’t the best but it doesn’t ruin the experience that I had!

Review:   Rustic Caribbean Luxury which is difficult to deliver but this resort does it well. Fantastic hillside rooms and the best food I've had at any resort in St Lucia. Staff are very genuine and you really become part of the family if you wish to be. Local bands provide exceptional evening entertainment.

Review:   Excellent hotel. It is the type of resort that tryes to offer everything in one place so you never need to look elsewhere. Normally we don't like this type of resort and prefer to explore on our own but this one offers a lot of options both inside the resort as well as excursions outside and it does all it offers extremely well. Would definitely go back.

Review:   Really enjoyed my stay here. We had an amazing room overlooking the pitons. Staff were very friendly, food good and substantial. Beaches were great with best snorkelling we have seen in the Caribbean. My husband went diving and said most professional dive centre he has been too.

Review:   Beautiful place to visit for a couple days, secluded. If you stay longer, be aware the food selection is limited if you do not eat meat. Additionally, to get off the property by foot is a very long and tiring walk. The road to the resort looks like it has been bombed the entire length. If you get motion sickness of any kind this is not a good way to enter or exit the facility. If you want a room with AC, you are at the base of the mountain by the beach. If y9u want to go to breakfast, it is 180 steps up. The AC equipped room I stayed in was full of mold and mildew and I got sick. I could not wait to leave. The staff was very friendly and seemed to care to a point. To order room service, you need to go outside to a phone on a pole. Very expensive for what you get.
