Sitting high above the gorgeous, 600 acre Anse Chastanet estate on St. Lucia’s west coast, Jade Mountain is one of the Caribbean’s ultimate romantic retreats thanks to a sublime combination of exquisite architecture, sumptuous suites and truly astounding views.
Forget about the humdrum colonial architecture of most Caribbean resorts; Jade Mountain was designed by co-owner and architect Nick Troubetzkoy, creating an utterly unique location. Rugged stone structures sit harmoniously amongst the lush jungle flora, while elegant private bridges connect to each of the secluded suites.
The suites themselves, of which there are twenty-nine and aptly dubbed “Sanctuaries” by Jade Mountain, are gorgeous. The huge, open plan spaces elegantly blend bedroom, bathroom and living space and enjoy astounding panoramic views of the beautifully iconic Pitons and the Caribbean Sea. Twenty-four of the suites encompass private infinity pools, and, while the five two-tiered Sky Jacuzzi Suites lack pools, they enjoy spacious private jacuzzis. Each of them is artfully placed for absolute romantic seclusion, with the only possible intrusion being your private butler who’s there to cater to your every need.
Even romantic relaxation requires sustenance, and this is served at the Jade Mountain Club restaurant. Exclusive to Jade Mountain guests, award-winning Chef Allen Susser has crafted an exquisite culinary adventure of modern fusion cuisine with locally sourced tropical ingredients, accompanied by the resort’s incredible signature views. After dinner, glide upstairs for even more jaw-dropping sights at the Celestial Terrace for sundowners overlooking the best sunset views on St. Lucia. In-suite dining is also available.
Jade Mountain’s small but sumptuous Kai en Ciel spa specialises in romantic couple’s treatments, but its size means reservations are recommended. Thankfully, for something a bit more spur of the moment, Jade Mountain guests have access to Anse Chastanet estate’s Kai Belté spa.
In fact, the full facilities of Anse Chastanet are available for anyone staying at Jade Mountain. Its six hundred acres encompass two beautiful private beaches, the 5-star Scuba St. Lucia centre (close to some fantastic coral reefs), a jungle biking centre, kayaking safaris, watersports, tennis and the resort’s organic farm: Emerald.
As St. Lucia’s ultimate romantic retreat, Jade Mountain is reserved for adults only.
