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 vegetarian 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.

The hotel is 1 hour drive from Airport with the last 20 minutes on a very bumpy road. What awaits you on arrival is paradise. The views from the very large bedrooms are stunning in both directions, the beach one side and the Pitons the other. We stayed in a Superior room which was very comfortable and everything was provided to make your stay wonderful. We ate in 2 of the restaurants both providing super food. All the staff are fantastic. Nothing is too much bother and they quickly remembered your names. It is easy to do nothing here but the snorkelling off the beach is great and the array of other activities is extensive. It is very quiet and peaceful . A great hotel made exceptional by its staff. Read less

Highlight #2 - Hidden gem of Anse Mamin a 5 minute walk that is mostly deserted but still has food, more on that next, and other amenities.

Highlight - snorkeling from the beach on a coral reef filled with fish! Nice. Highlight #2 - Hidden gem of Anse Mamin a 5 minute walk that is mostly deserted but still has food, more on that next, and other amenities. Not so high - they need to have a lighter sides selection (I know really being picky here) but I don't need 5 Star meals on the beach or at the bar when I am dripping wet from swimming and snorkeling. Plantains, chips & salsa, or some other local side would have been great to have. You are captured here at the resort as the road is terrible, on purpose, and the nearest town is not convenient to get to. So meals times are highly regulated and the selection is limited. Heavy on the formal dining experience here. If that's what you love then great if you want more relaxed atmosphere might want to think twice. Overall positive experience and we would recommend people to stay here - remember no A/C in the rooms so stop at the hilltop bar for a drink to cool off after the 120+ stair climb from the beach. ;) Might have done that several times - ha.

Fabulous hotel!!! Just returned from a 1 week vacation with my boyfriend and we absolutely loved the hotel. We did the "total romance" package which I highly recommend, plenty of activities to chose from. The entire hotel staff was so nice and accommodating. They really make the effort to get to know you, remember your name, help in any way possible. The hotel itself is BEAUTIFUL. built into a hill with each room tucked away. we had a superior room, loved it! wrap around balcony with fantastic view of the pitons and sea. no a/c but they provide plenty of fans and the breeze feels refreshing. Room was always cleaned and tidy when we returned at the end of day. The beach is gorgeous, never felt crowded and you could always find a table and chairs. plus beach service right to your seat! The beach bar is also great for an afternoon drink or sunset watch. We went up to Jade Mountain one night for dinner which i highly recommend, if you're on the all inclusive it's an extra $45 per person but so worth it. Definitely go up early for a drink on the roof top for sunset. The view is incredible and just to see Jade Mountain is breathtaking. We had such a great time and i can't wait to return! Read less

We are a family of 4 and visited for Spring Break as well as to celebrate an occasion. In short, we had one of the best trips ever.

We are a family of 4 and visited for Spring Break as well as to celebrate an occasion. In short, we had one of the best trips ever. If you’re going to St Lucia, I would HIGHLY recommend staying at Anse Chastanet. Their view of the Pitons alone is one of the most stunning things we have ever seen. On top of that… the hotel staff, food, rooms and amenities were just unbelievable. Per their amenities we would especially recommend their beach / snorkeling / scuba. For food we ate at the beach restaurant mostly, but would also recommend their treehouse restaurant. For rooms, I would 100% ask for a Piton view if available but the ocean views are really nice as well. One final tip is they have a have a secret beach which is perfectly private and stunning at sunset. In summary, I don’t usually write reviews, but felt we needed to share this magical place with others. Read less
