Jade Mountain

St Lucia, Caribbean

The hotel

Jade Mountain wins our vote as one of the Caribbean’s most mesmerising resorts. It doesn’t just offer accommodation it offers a sanctuary, or rather a collection of sanctuaries, in which to completely feel at one with your natural surrounds. It’s also the only resort with a view of both the Petit and Gros Piton mountains, making it an extra special choice for the discerning traveller. Connected by bridges, rooms literally float out onto platforms; a bedroom, a living area, the fourth wall dispensed with entirely and infinity pools strategically placed so you feel you are diving into the view. For sunset drinks with a difference, the Celestial Terrace feels just that — heavenly. Kickback with a cocktail and prepare for some serious stargazing. There’s also a wide range of indulgent spa treatments to be enjoyed and a fitness studio for enthusiasts. And, if the splendour at Jade Mountain isn’t enough, guests have access to all the facilities at sister resort, Anse Chastanet, including restaurants, bars and water sports on two soft sand beaches. Anse is easily accessible on foot or hop on-board the shuttle bus — if you can tear yourself away from paradise that is!

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were in paradise. Our sanctuary (we were upgraded to moon) was stunning and the views of the Pitons absolutely breathtaking. The food breakfast, lunch, dinner or room service were all delicious and the quality none that I have ever had the pleasure to experience before. We have stayed in some beautiful hotels across the world but seriously none can even begin to touch the quality of Jade Mountain and the experience was out of this world! The team are also fantastic a special thanks to our Major Domos Teddy, Odeka and Vito. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them and they organised all of our excursions for us as well as cater to our every need whilst in resort. Ned in the Jade Club was a fantastic host each evening as we ate dinner and everywhere we went everyone knew who we were and addressed us personally. This hotel deserves 10 stars not 5. I’m not sure how the heck we can ever holiday anywhere else again - nothing can compare. All the team in Anse Chastenet were also fantastic we had great service on the beach with Abo and his team. Thank you Jade Mountain we hope to be back! Read less

Truly magical place. We were taken care of in a way that allowed us to take care of each other. What a perfect place to reconnect with your partner. The views are sensational. The food was the best we've ever tasted. The activities were fun and nurturing. We can't wait to go back. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

When we arrived, my husband and I were absolutely speechless. We had never seen a resort concept like this before. If you have ever picked up a postcard or seen those stunning photographs of the most tropical experiences, this is it. You are literally living inside a picture postcard. Every one of your senses is exposed. Each night you fall asleep with the most exotic sounds of the island and wake up to the fresh smells of flowers. There are no windows - everything is open-air. The architecture is extraordinary. You cannot see or hear the other guests. It is designed in such a unique way so that your privacy is fully respected. There is a separate private beach that is the ultimate level of luxury with amazing views and relaxation. The "butlers" are so accommodating. With one quick conversation, they organized a morning day-trip for us with a personalized guide. Then, when we were late getting our dinner reservation for the Jade Club, our butler called the manager to make an exception for our last night stay. Truly a breath-taking/bucklet list experience.

An experience like none other. When you arrive you are shown to your "sanctuary". There is no front wall, you immediately see the pitons and the stunning view. Your pool is in your suite and the rooms are huge. Whatever pictures you see can't do it justice. You literally do not have to leave your room the entire time you are there. Sleeping essentially outside was great. There is netting around your four poster bed. You receive your phone to contact your major domo if you need anything. Allain and Filimina were our main domos and they were attentive, professional and always smiling. I had a small allergic reaction and Filimena took complete care of me even though it was late at night. The housekeeping staff is friendly and thorough. Shout out to Sandra who is super cute.We ate breakfast in our room every day. The food is delicious. We had dinner mostly at the Jade Mountain Club which is perched on the top of the resort. All the servers are extremely attentive and there is live music each night. Can't get more romantic than dinner at the top of the resort with beautiful sunsets and skies filled with stars. The resort itself is all walkways and mosaics. If you do leave your room, there are two great beaches. I went to the beginner's scuba diving on the beach. So patient! There are so may romantic details. One night we found our bed decorated in rose petals and the next night we came back from dinner to find a bubble bath and rose petals all around. We had a couples massage in our sanctuary. We both thought our massage therapists were amazing. We went for our honeymoon 8 years ago and returned for our anniversary. Will be waiting for our next visit. Read less
