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

as per usual it has taken me ages to get round to writing this review for our trip 15/3/2014 - 29/3/2014! this was a special trip to celebrate my wife's birthday so we pushed the boat out travelling... Read more first class with british airways (totally awesome) and upgrading to the helicopter transfer to the hotel (seven minutes of sheer thrill ride giving the best arrival view of the hotel flying between the pitons) and the hotel never failed to live up to its promised service. the staff were some of the friendliest we have met, really going out of their way to make you feel special. the rooms were simple but absolutely perfect and the through flow of air through the specially designed windows did work like air conditioning and we just needed the ceiling fan on every now and then. the food was once again some of the finest cuisine we have ever experienced and again the staff always seemed knowledgeable in everything they were asked, we had paid the all inclusive supplement back in the uk and i would definitely recommend this option, especially if you like drinking prosecco on the beach from 9am! the beach bar at anse mamin definitely does serve the best burgers and the short walk to get there must burn off at least enough calories for a couple of extra chips! by pure luck we also managed to spend our last night at the jade mountain hotel further up the hill and this place has to be seen to be believed! the upgrade price was fairly eye watering but then it was a special celebration and was well worth it considering we had our own in room plunge pool and 24hr butler service! the photos on the web really don't prepare you for the breathtaking views and the fact that you are in the open air! all in all a truly mind blowing holiday and i would have no hesitation in returning every year if the bank balance would allow, highly recommended Read less
My daughter and I just left this hotel yesterday and it is all I can think about. It is that amazing. We stayed in room 7F which is the most astoundingly beautiful hotel room I have ever stayed in... Read more . We ate in all 3 restaurants, had 2 spa treatments each and went on a sunset sail. Everything we pure perfection. Most of all though, we met the most lovely and amazing staff. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating and called us by name. It was a very special experience that I will not forget. Read less
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.
