Description
Anse Chastanet St. Lucia

A tropical paradise to host your destination wedding or romantic exclusive honeymoon Anse Chastanet
voted one of the Caribbeans top ten resorts.

ANSE CHASTANET on lush tropical St.Lucia is one of the Caribbean's
most panoramic resort hideaways, 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.
