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

We decided to make a second visit to Anse Chastanet after a very good experience two years before. This time we felt the stay was even better than the first time and now my spouse wants to go back... Read more soon. From arrival at the St. Lucia Airport and departure this was a nearly perfect visit. We again returned to dive and take advantage of a 12-dive package over a week stay. The dive shop staff was top rate and totally professional they do it right. We had a four-meal package and that included a high-tea at the beach cafe each day. The evening meals were top-tier and well prepared. Only one slip up and that was on our first night when the meal pacing was a disaster. As said this was second visit and again we did not venture off the location. There is lots of outdoor activates to take part in but we opted to spend free-time relaxing and reading between dives. The beach is fabulous and you must be there at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day to meet Junior as he brings cool refreshing face clothes to sooth you with lemon grass scent. Beware those who are not as fit as you should be. From the beach to the reception are there are 103 steps to climb, but if you cannot make it they do have a ride to bring you up the hill. The rooms do not have air conditioning but ceiling fans. Turn down service each evening prepares your room with mosquito netting draping your bed. Rooms do have a safe at no charge for your valuables. Breakfast area is nice and airy but beware of the birds who will join you for creamed cheese, bread and your juice if you do not watch out. Hiking is part of many activities and they are well done by resident hiker--Meno. No television in the rooms which is such a joy. If you need to just totally unwind this is the place for you. Highest recommendation. There is great snorkeling on site for those who do not dive. Try both ends of the beach to see all the fish life. Do purchase a meal plan if offered and if you want to drink you may want to do that plan, too. Oh, do bring earplugs if you do not like the sound of nature for it can be pretty loud outside at night.

The hillside resort exudes charm and provides many lovely vantage points from which to view the stunning Piton mountains and Caribbean sea. Open-air accommodations celebrate the beauty of nature and... Read more the flora and fauna native to Saint Lucia, and my favorite aspect of our room was the large, al fresco shower encompassing a lovely tree. Our group is well traveled and enjoys good food. We were impressed by the large selection of breakfast options in the morning, the delicious cuisine served beach-side, and the incredible burgers at Anse Mamin beach, a relaxing and private cove reached by a short walking trail or a boat taxi. The main beach features dark sand, great snorkeling, many watersports options, and comfortable shaded chaises for relaxing and enjoying a cool drink. I cannot fail to mention Peter, the manager, who is a wealth of information about the island as well as the resort, and is quite entertaining as well. He is dedicated to the resort and the guests and works hard to ensure a most enjoyable stay. Read less
We've just returned from a week at Anse Chastanet and the only real down point was having to go home. Beautiful location, fantastic room, excellent food and great beach. Having no windows or... Read more glass sounds strange, but absolutely works - we had a resident fly catcher (bird) in the bathroom which seemed to keep us clear of insects, but he did leave mementos of his visits. We visited Jade Mountain and while it does not really suit us, it is an absolutely amazing piece of architecture, at one with the environment and clearly a dream place to stay in. The staff are very friendly and kind, with only the odd exception, such as a rather grumpy young lady in the beach restaurant, which is a real shame as one bad attitude counters that of a dozen of lovely people. It's not fair to single out from the vast majority of the staff those who make your visit special, but when you visit you'll have the same problem - from the gardeners up to the general manager our encounters were 99% very pleasant. The beach and snorkelling we're great, as was the service from Abo and his team. Jungle is now my cousin and Meno's knowledge is truly wonderful. If you need a water taxi, try "Let God Arise" which you'll see regularly on the beach - good value and again great local knowledge. We thoroughly enjoyed all our meals and their quality. Again in the restaurant and bars the vast majority of staff were kind, helpful and fun to chat to. All the steps are a chore you can easily put up with, but there is an excellent car shuttle service if you want to avoid the exercise. I don't think a normal person can possibility be disappointed by a stay here or up the hill at Jade Mountain and it is hard to fathom how anybody can be disappointed by the resort. I can only think that they are serial complainers, never happy with anything or maybe trying to seek a discount or freebe - well don't believe or give into them ! Read less
Oh I have so much to say. Anse Chastenet is by far the Best Resort we have ever stayed at and we love tropical destinations and this Resort had it all~ We are an adventurous outdoor family with... Read more expensive taste for cuisine and being pampered and this exceeding our expectations!!!~ We lOur room was 9005 without a fourth wall which gave us breath taking views of the Pitons and the two bays~ the exoticness of the songs of the birds, frogs and the beauty of all the flowers enhanced our view!!!!~ Our room came with a full kitchen and the fridge was always stocked with beer, wine, fruit juices for our son and lovely platters of the island's fresh fruit~ It was hard to choose from the five different restaurants because the food was out of this world!!!~ We asked to see the chief to Thank him personally~ But we also came for the adventure~ Anse Chastenet has the best snorkeling on the Island no need to go anywhere else~ We kayaked to Anse's private beach and in my opinion ate the world best burgers~ We explore the nearby rain forrest by hiking or one can mountain biking and a guide to share his knowledge of the rain forest~ There is 150 different kinds of mangos!!!~ Almost all trees and plants have proprieties that the locals use~ If one was to get stranded on an island this would be the island!!!!~ Read less
A friend and I did a volunteer trip around different parts of the island then stayed at Anse Chastanet for a couple of days afterwards. We liked that it's not near the more hustling capital city of... Read more Castries. It's located near the laid-back fishing village of Soufriere if you want to take a water taxi to town - the 2 mile road is very bumpy and takes longer. You can also take a water taxi to the Saturday morning market in Soufriere or to the nearby Seafood Party held every Friday night. You can drink the tap water, but they also provided a large bottled water each day. Room had a fridge with complimentary fruit the first day which we ate for breakfast the next day. Great big bathroom with toiletries, good water pressure, and hot water. The best part was the private patio that had a hammock over section of sand, 2 chaise lounges, ceiling fan, couch, table, and 2 chairs. The A/C worked but the room wouldn't get as cold as my friend would like - I was fine with it. We loved the location because the marine reserve is right in front of the hotel so scuba diving was only a 2 minute boat ride away. The staff was superb - everyone on the island is so genuinely friendly. And the food was excellent. Be sure to get a beach room if you can - the hotel is on a big hill and some rooms require lots of steps to get to the beach. There is a restaurant on the beach as well as one higher for the "tree top" rooms. Read less
