Anse Chastanet Resort

St Lucia, Caribbean

The hotel

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-motorised water sports 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 vegan restaurant. Due to the secluded location of this resort, we are selling it on an All Inclusive basis so you can truly experience the fine dining and facilities it has to offer.

My wife and I recently had the luxury of staying at Anse Chastanet with a large group of divers from Denver, CO.

My wife and I recently had the luxury of staying at Anse Chastanet with a large group of divers from Denver, CO. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the entire operation except that it requires more planning each day that I'm used to. Our room was 200+ stairs from the beach so it was wise to be sure to take everything you'd need for the day rather than 'run' up and down the stairs several times. There is a shuttle but it's more convenient to take what you need in the morning...lol. I also really wish that Scuba St Lucia had larger lockers for divers but again, we figured out how to accommodate the size. The food was excellent and the variety of options at the buffet every day was amazing. Chicken, vegan, beef, and seafood options at virtually every meal. Breakfasts with excellent as well. Again, one shortcoming was the resort's desire for guests to wear dry clothing at lunch which required an extra change of clothing between or after dives. Again, we figured it out. The dive staff and dive masters at Scuba St Lucia were excellent and we got to be friends with all of them during our week. I don't have space for all of them but they crewed the Miss Ina for our week. Xavier was the captain. We LOVED our cabin. The view was unbelievable, the decorations were nice and room service took care of us. Loved the banana bread and rum miniature that was waiting for us upon arrival. We loved the cool breeze every evening and mosquito netting, although we never saw a flying bug of any type. The BBQ we had at Anse Mamin was a great time as was the karaoke night for the group. We loved the nature tour that Meno gave us. He is a wealth of information about the flora and fauna and the medicinal value of virtually every plant. See the old plantation ruins was very interesting as were the huge sugar cane boiling pots that had been reclaimed from the ruins and used in several places around Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin. This was a bucket list trip and it lived up to our expectations. We'd seen Yasha's presentation several times and never thought we'd be able to get there but our dive shop put together a group and we immediately joined in. Fantastic trip! Read less

This place is for people who: love good service, a variety of activities, beautiful scenery, beautiful and warm water beaches, nature, birds, snorkeling, diving, sailing etc. I had a beachside room which was exactly what I was looking for.. easy access to the beach, and AC if I needed.. coming from Canada I needed it.. just during the day to get rid of some heat and humidity. I often turned it right off at night. The resort itself has everything and anything you could want or need so you don’t necessarily have to go anywhere unless you’re looking for excursions or extra excitement. This place is very well run and the grounds and rooms are kept very nicely. It was very evident how hard the team works to make the resort an enjoyable place for the guests.. I am very happy I chose Anse Chastanet for my trip because it suited me perfectly.. I was able to relax and enjoy in peace and the week flew by like it was only a couple of days. Read less

We stayed at Anse Chastanet for 2 weeks (12 days Anse Chastanet, 2 days Jade Mountain) for our honeymoon in September and it was without doubt the most epic holiday we've ever had - or likely will ever have! St Lucia is such a beautiful island where you are truly welcomed. Anse Chastanet is stunning - so bright, colourful, tropical -and as we went in September / October, it never felt too busy and always very chilled out. The main standout for us was the friendliness of every single person we met who worked at Anse Chastanet. They were so welcoming and helpful. Some of our highlights include: Food and drink wise, you can't fault Anse Chastanet. The food was delicious - the vegan restaurant was great and i loved that so many of the fruit and vegetables used in the cooking were from Emerald Farm. It was nice to have some lighter options. We would bounce around between the main restaurants each day and you quickly become regulars at the beach bar and main bar, getting to know some of the lovely team including Jeanmeal, Dave and Claude. A special mention for the breakfasts - they are amazing! You're sat in what feels like a giant treehouse, eating delicoius banana bread and coconut bread, with so much choice. Again everyone looked after us so well - Marilyn, Vanessa, Elicher, Claude. Jazzy sunset boat cruise. We lucked out and saw an epic sunsent and lots of dolphins. The team working on the boat were brilliant too. Worth every penny! Emerald Farm tour. We did a farm tour and the bean to bar one. Matthew and Martin were both brilliant as they lead different tours for us. I absolutely loved Emerald Farm -it is so beautiful and brilliant to see how it's so integrated into Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain. Rum tasting with Yannick. We had a private rum tasting and it was absolutely brilliant - Yannick is a total legend. So friendly, knowledgeable, and we had such a fun few hours with him. It was all set on Anse Mamin (the most beautiful backdrop) so all in all, an absolute highlight for Tim and I. Cocktails on the beach. This one is obvious, but nothing beats having a Coco Loco or Piton beer whilst watching the sunset. The team looked after us so well every single day including Sylvia, Abo - i've forgetten so many names now :( Staying at Jade Mountain for our last 2 nights. Our 'sanctuary' was absolutely stunning, like nothing we've experienced before, and the team who looked after us were so accomodating. I'm so thrilled we got to experience staying at Jade Mountain as it's incredible! All the staff at Anse Chastanet were SO helpful (Obam, Kerissa, and so so many more, plus everyone i've already mentioned). Thank you for looking after us so well and giving us a trip of an absolute lifetime. We'll never forget it, and i'm trying to convince Tim to let us come back for an anniversary. Read less

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Anse Chastenet. Upon arrival, we were greeted with cold mint-scented towels and a complimentary signature drink, and immediately were upgraded to a beautiful beachside villa. The staff were so friendly, professional, and obliging. Tasha assisted us with check-in and was fantastic, and throughout our entire stay Obed, who was at the concierge desk, was so engaging and fun. Housekeeping was quick and quiet, and routinely left small cards on the bed about the resort and the area. The food was impeccable, with many delicious options for my husband, who eats meat, and myself, a vegetarian. I got the broccoli tempura every night, and he loved the quail. Breakfast had many great options, as well as a buffet bar with pastries, muffins, fruit, meats, and juices. Throughout the day, the shaded cabanas on the beach are easily accessible and you are left completely alone unless you request something by placing the yellow flag in the sand. Beachside service was quick and the staff were always so polite and helpful. Our room was air conditioned, and WiFi, although it could be spotty in places, was available everywhere throughout the resort. The snorkeling was amazing—we snorkeled almost every day and saw a great variety of fish, including lion fish, squid, trunkfish, and trumpetfish. We highly, highly recommend Anse Chastenet whether you are looking for an ideal location for a romantic honeymoon or a fantastic option for a quiet getaway, this is it. Read less

Breathtaking views, fabulous food, friendly and welcoming staff, two wonderful beaches and lots to do in the resort from relaxing/do nothing, snorkelling on the reef, scuba, boat trips, kayak, SUP, yoga, biking and more. Probably the best luxury resort we’ve stayed in to date. 5 stars!
