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 non motorized watersports to walking the many miles of estate trails, jungle biking and birdwatching, snorkeling and scuba diving. For the less actively inclined, simply do nothing, lie on the beach or enjoy one of the therapeutic body and beauty treatments. The resort operates its own organic farm and chocolate laboratory making chocolate from their own estate beans. Guests are welcome! Dining choices include Caribbean fine dining in the Treehouse, East Indian- St Lucia fusion at beach level, and Emeralds, a vegetarian restaurant.

We stayed at the resort with a group of 17, primarily for SCUBA diving. The staff was extremely accommodating to arrange tours and meals to meet our needs. The restaurants were excellent. My... Read more wife and some of the other non-divers enjoyed the other activities, like yoga and mixology class, very much. The diving was sometimes challenging. Many of the sites had strong current. Fortunately all of the dives were drift dives. Read less
Anse Chastanet was just what we needed after a volunteer trip to teach children in Anse La Raye. I sprained my ankle and broke a toe during the volunteer week, thus I was a bit disabled. Our first... Read more room was a beautiful view of the bay. We were at level 5. Shuttles were available to get to and from the beach and the restaurants. I tried walking to the restaurant as a shuttle was not available, one did pick me up in route and was very patient while I entered and got out of the shuttle. We asked for a beach level room to make the stay easier for me. They had an open first floor beach room available. The staff were so gracious and willing to make our stay memorable. They moved all our luggage to the room, we did not need to worry about a thing. Of all the places we've stayed around the world, this is the most memorable as we needed some assistance and Anse Chastanet took the best care of us. If you like the beach, the beach rooms are the best. If you like the views, stay up the mountain. St Lucia is a beautiful country. Read less
This was our second trip to St Lucia & Anste Chastanet. Our first trip was in 1997. The resort has changed a lot since than and the changes have improved the resort. Upon arrival we were escorted to... Read more comfortable chairs in the bar received peppermint scented towels & welcome drinks. After completing all the paperwork we were escorted to our rooms. We were given the same room from our first visit. We love the rooms on the beach as we spend most of our time on the beach snorkeling & scuba diving and the air conditioning is a plus. We selected the all inclusive and it was the best choice. The food was excellent and I have issues with my diet and they accommodated my request with a smile, nothing was a problem. The beach procedure was changed since 1997 and is a great system. The beach attendants follow you as you choose you chair which are all under little palm trees. They set up your chair and for any other service including water, drinks or food you place a stick with a yellow flag in the sand to get this service. A couple times a day Oliver stops at each hut with cool lemongrass scented towels and mist you with ecalyptus. The beach is beautiful, the water is delightful and the service beyond great. Want to snorkel or kayak or float on a raft...all available here. The staff make this resort special as they always greet you and ask if you need anything. Our favorite servers were Cedelle for lunch & tea & the wonderful Janice for dinner. Our hostess was the beautiful Madeline! There are many more that I would love to mention but did not write down all the names. We brought another couple with us and they loved everything so we will return in 2017 with more friends!

My husband and I had an amazing time at the Anse Chastanet. We spent our four days mainly at the beautiful resort and at its private beach swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling and drinking rum or vodka... Read more Bentleys (a signature drink). We stayed in room 7E, which has to be the most breath-taking and spectacular room in the resort! We had a view of the pitons and the oceanâ€“â€“simply magical. The room was open-air, and the bed had mosquito netting over it. I am not an outdoorsy person and was fine with this concept. The hotel supplies bug spray, but bugs were never an issue. The staff is very kind and accommodating. The feel of the resort is laid back, but it still has the superior service of a high-end hotel. There are a lot of stairs, which may seem intimidating at first, but there is a shuttle service whenever you need it. Also, make sure to have a drink at the Jade Hotel, which is within walking distance. I highly recommend the Anse Chastanet and can't wait to go back! Read less
This place is just spectacular. Every room is uniqueâ€”we know because we toured a bunch of themâ€”and designed so that you have private indoor/outdoor spaces. The location on St. Lucia also can't be... Read more beat, with views of the spectacular pitons and great snorkeling right off of the secluded beach, as well as a dive center if you're scuba-inclined, paddleboards and kayaks, guided hikes and a full-service spa. There are also loads of other off-site activities that the staff will happily arrange (hiking to a waterfall, biking in a rain forest, tours of the nearby volanco/sulphur springs/mud bath, zip-lining, sunset sails). And get this: There's even a boutique chocolate-making facility where you can learn to make chocolate or take gourmet courses (wine & chocolate tasting anyone?). We also loved the beachside Indian-themed restaurant. The property is quite vertical (hence the views) but you can opt for a beachside room or take the shuttle up and down if you aren't up for the climb. It's known as a romantic getaway (which it absolutely is) but we were there with children in tow (9 & 10) and we all had a fantastic time. Read less
