This romantic 600-acre hillside hideaway is a unique resort in harmony with its lush, natural environment. The 'get-away-from-it-all' philosophy means that rooms have no TV or radio - instead you admire the spectacular scenery from the beachside rooms or sea views from the treehouse-style rooms further up the flower-decked hillside! How much you get up to on this holiday is up to you. There are many activities on offer here, from tennis to windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling. For the less actively inclined, simply do nothing, lie on the beach or enjoy one of the therapeutic body and beauty treatments.
In a hillside-beachfront setting within its own 600 acre estate bordering two soft sand beaches on St Lucia's southwest coast. Transfer time from airport: 1 hour.Larger Map

Sorry, I don't see a separate area for the restaurant so reviewing it under the hotel listing. We stopped here for lunch while out on a boat trip and really enjoyed it. Portions were generous, food... Read more was tasty, and prices were reasonable considering it's a beach resort. Try the curry wrap - it is gigantic! Service was friendly and although the food took a little bit of time, the server made sure we had plenty to drink. :) The view is nice and the atmosphere is relaxing. Side note - the snorkeling here is great! Just make sure you're wearing at least flip flops and a cover-up if you're coming off the beach. Read less
Anse Chastanet was on my bucket list for years, and I finally had the opportunity to go. It met all of my expectations! The room that we had was large, airy, ideally located on the property, and... Read more very romantic. The service was top notch, no matter which staff member that I had an encountered. Everyone greets you with a smile, asks you about your day and wishes you a good day. The food was fabulous! Each meal was delicious, and most of the veggies were grown right there on their farm. We went on four guided hikes with Menno - who is a very knowledgeable local man full of energy and good humor! My husband and I are divers, and we took advantage of the onsite dive shop (Scuba St. Lucia). Though we have dove in many other areas in the world (many of which are much better dives) their dive staff were true professionals and provided us with outstanding service! Read less
A huge plus for anyone who is coeliac or on a gluten-free diet - the hotel has its own delicious gluten-free bread which they can use for the afternoon-tea sandwiches and burgers. The staff were... Read more also kind enough to fetch some for my husband every morning for breakfast. Staff were in addition very aware of which dishes were gluten free in their restaurants. My husband is coeliac and we happily accept when traveling that this may limit his food options in more isolated locations.So it was an extremely pleasant surprise for him to be so well looked after at Anse Chastanet.

Visited the resort for lunch, though we were not staying. We have been many times before for a snorkel, swim and sand castle building followed by lunch. The snorkelling was great, we had a lovely... Read more lunch and a great day. The food tasted very fresh and we all loved the Lucian slaw. However, we were disappointed on arrival when the beach man asked us to move to the end of the beach "away from our guests". We had sat near some loungers that were all empty, which we pointed out to him, but he was having none of it. Being well aware all beaches in St Lucia are public it felt like we were about to get into a row. The guy asked us what we wanted him to do and my husband politely said we would like him to just leave us alone, which to his credit he did. This seems to be becoming a bit of an issue with the beach hotels, and I am unclear what they are trying to protect their guests from - people hassling guests to buy stuff I would understand, but just other tourists like the guests themselves - really is that necessary?
