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

I wanted to snorkle for a major birthday and tried to remember the best vacations from the past. Anse Chatanet did not disappoint. It had even added some extras that made my week in Paradise... Read more complete. There are now four restaurants as well as beach service. The beach cabanas were updated and there were enough for everyone. The service every where was superb. The hot rocks massage was the best ever. The fresh caught tuna was unbelievably delicious. The drink with the umbrella was deliciously fun. Yes, I will go again. (I was on the first Jet Blue direct flight from Boston. This made the travel extra easy,) Read less
Once you made it to the island and the resort you feel peaceful and calm. The employees do their outmost best that you get to this feeling and stay there. The whole concept and execution of the... Read more estate is stunning and second to none. The nature living openness of the rooms is splendid and very interesting to watch and experience. Every morning we woke up by the sounds of hundreds of birds, not loud or annoying, rather beautiful and natural. The beaches and snorkelling facilities right in front are very good, this is of course why so many day tourist are coming to, which is the only little negative i can say about the stay since they behave like they do...... The food and cocktails are excellent, fresh, innovative and delicious! Not one dish was ordinary! The difference to other places are the staff, very well done! Read less

Returned from our annual trip to Anse Chastanet at the end of November, on arriving we were greeted with welcome home and even though it was a year since we had been , within minutes it was like we... Read more had never been away . A very good word to describe this Caribbean gem would be charming ! It is laid back luxury with fantastic service ,excellent quality food all served at your table with a smile . Over the years we have met many repeat guests and this is a testimony to all the hard work put in by the management and the staff that make this resort so special. To sum it up if you want to lie on a beach and be given a cold lemongrass flannel , be sprayed with eucalyptus a term described by the beach staff as spreading the happiness, put a flag in the sand from your coco hut if you fancy a cocktail or something to eat , watch a beautiful sunset , followed by a fabulous dinner and finish off the perfect day listening to live music , dancing with the staff who most probably you will regard as your friends by the end of your holiday, perhaps you should try Anse Chastanet Read less
