Anse Chastanet in Soufriere, Saint Lucia

From silvery sands for sunset strolls, to entire walls opening onto the great outdoors, luxury is in the details at Anse Chastanet. No two rooms are alike at this intimate 600-acre estate on the secluded southwest coast of Saint Lucia. Design in harmony with nature is enhanced by wraparound balconies, showers with breathtaking views, tropical world cuisine served shore-side and the beach Kai Belte Spa, for the ultimate in pampering.

The Piti and Gros Piton mountains - a pair of spectacular peaks that shoot up straight from the sea - provide a fabulous backdrop for your days. On the beach, just below the hotel, a renowned PADI dive facility offers excellent scuba diving for all levels at Anse Chastanet Reef. Further afield, exhilarating pursuits include nature walks among the ruins of a colonial plantation, tours of the island's walk-in volcano and sunset cruises on the resort's 42-foot yacht, aptly named Serenity.

The resort consists mostly of 2 room cabanas with wrap around balconies, clinging to the precipitous side of Jade mountain. The view from our room was unparalleled in our travels. Rain forest clad mountains, sparkling waters and the magical Pitons mountains. We were there during the rainy season in December but the weather was perfect on our side of the mountain. Often you could see rain further inland but we had a week of sunny days. The resort is vertical! There are some cabanas at the beach level but we were very happy we chose a mountain room because of the afore mentioned view. There is a restaurant/bar right at the water's edge. In fact, when the tide is coming in, it is a good idea to choose a table more to the interior to avoid a soaking! There is a dive shop and lots of loungers and a towel concierge. There is a second beach that has a restaurant/bar and a boat shuttle. You can reach it by foot too. The beach is beautiful and there is a reef teeming with fish just a few steps from shore. You might see a few turtles as well. From the beach, there are stairs (171 steps) leading up to the resort reception area and 2 main restaurants. All the restaurants are roofed but open air. The Treehouse restaurant looks out over a valley leading to the ocean with some massive trees reaching up past it. Watch carefully and you might see a tree sloth. The other restaurant looks over the water and the bar has entertainment and wicked CocoLocos. Continuing up the mountainside is a steep, narrow, paved road leading to the rooms. Our room was about a 5 minute climb from the reception area. If you continue up the mountain you come to Jade Mountain Resort, a mind bogglingly gorgeous, ethereal property perched at the very peak. It is like something from Star Wars. You MUST go there for a meal. It was included in our all inclusive package. Go every day! The VIEW! We consider ourselves active and relatively fit for 60ish travellers. We run, bike, ski and ply sports but the second day my calves were complaining. That doesn't need to happen. there are shuttles that take you to the beach and back, to your room or to Jade Mountain Resort. We stubbornly resisted and my legs got used to the climbs. Food is great, service fantastic, people friendly and we had a wonderful week.

This hotel has a lot of promise but needs a bit of a facelift. The jaw-dropping Jade mountain has probably been the owners focus for the last few years.. In my opinion it does not deserve the reviews or price that it has, maybe it used to, but not any more. We went at a quiet time, end of Nov/Start of Dec so there were only 2 restaurants which crammed in 5 menus. This may be the reason the food was fairly average. The cocktails were a joke, we tried a few times to order a mojito in case it was staff dependent and in the end it turned out they were actually trained to make this crazy toothpastey smoothie, it was undrinkable! There were so many cheap touches like not very nice glasses and cutlery and finishings around the hotel and rooms that would make a big difference. Good things: The location is amazing, really one of a kind and the beach is great. The scuba club was absolutely wonderful one of the best I have ever gone out with. We had nice massages in the spa too. We ate and had cocktails in Jade mountain most nights after being dissapointed with the food at Anse Chastanet and that was AMAZING. So you could do that, it would be much cheaper than staying up the hill and you would be close to the beach in the day, but it was difficult to get reservations.

Started off in room 4B which was very disappointing, in need of refurb, no air con, tiny wardrobe, located up a steep hill (95 steps from restaurant) as there are no glass in the 7 windows you can hear every noise outside - be warned!!! Frogs start at 6pm and don’t stop until 6am! We had the shock of our lives, it was like 50 car alarms going off all night long. We did kind of get used to it after the first night and it wasn’t as bad, however the selfish, obnoxious loud mouth neighbour basically ruined the first few days of our holiday! Totally selfish she would get up before 6am every day and talk at the top of her voice with no regard for anyone else. It sounded as though she was stood next to our bed we could hear every word she said. We ended up writing a note and sliding it under her door, we also complained to Jonathan who spoke to her. She was quieter for 1 day and then went back to normal. Seriously why would you want to get up before 6am on holiday?! But so selfish to wake everyone else up as well! I had to sleep with ear plugs in and an eye mask on. I was disappointed there was no bath in our room, and also to learn the hotel did not have a swimming pool. There are 129 steps to the beach which to be honest for me was torture in 30 degree heat, others may not mind this but when I go on holiday I just want to relax. Personally I found the pillows too thick and there were no alternatives. I didn’t like the yellow lighting in the bathroom was hard for applying make up, but needed to keep mosquitoes at bay. I get the feeling that 10 years ago this Hotel would have been the place to be - but now they have Jade mountain this Hotel is in need of updating and refurb. Certain areas are a bit scruffy, like the beach toilets and I wouldn’t have exactly called the spa luxurious. Another thing I didn’t like was the toilet paper was so thin about 1ply, this is just a preference but I didn’t like it. Finally I found it a bit tedious shutting and opening all of the shutters daily it was a bit annoying. Above is all the negative stuff, however when a different room became available, Jonathan moved us to 11D which was beachside as opposed to hillside. Wow, we loved this room! Loads of space, huge bathroom twin sinks, outside area with hammock and sun loungers, luxurious feel with air con we were very happy with this room. Great lighting with white bulbs in bathroom, plus room had its own WiFi hotspot. Beach was very nice and secluded though not private. Anse Mamam beach well worth a visit for lunch. Food and drinks were delicious and the service was excellent. Breathtaking views of the twin peaks etc, and nice that there is only 50 rooms in the hotel so is not over crowded. Did the jazzy cruise which was good and saw dolphins which was amazing. Had a massage at the spa which was quite good and enjoyed the steel band entertainment on a Tuesday. The staff were great, really friendly and helpful. Sherman our taxi driver to the airport was excellent.

I went with a group for a week of scuba diving at the resort and they were simply awesome. We went diving everyday, and it was super nice not having to rinse our BCs and regs since they did it for us- they worked so hard during the week to make our stay a memorable one. The dive team was so patient and encouraging with beginners and had excellent eyes finding small and interesting reef creatures- even a nice size seahorse. The resort is located in what I think is the best part of the island, as it's away from the cruise ship port near the north and is very closes to the Pitons. It took the boat about 5 or 10 min max to be at the base of one. The diving was excellent with very calm conditions all week, it was almost as calm as a bathtub. Now the resort is just as good as others say- it's beautiful, has great food (and I'm a vegetarian), big rooms, and great service no matter where you are on the property. The staff was very friendly and our housekeeping person visited twice a day. The turn down service was lovely and the towels were always being replaced. Water pressure at the shower could be better and water sometimes wasn't super hot in the shower, so that's something they could note. After diving you get cold and sometimes you want a hot shower. The only side trip we did was to the volcanic mud bath and that was worth it.

I stayed there with my wife for our honeymoon and it was fabulous. The room has an open concept so you are connected to the nature. The view is spectacular! The restaurants are very nice with tasty food options and the main bar can satisfy all your beverage desires. The beach is very nice and the Pitons not far away... The people of Saint Lucia are fantastic and we had a great time! Keep it up Anse Chastanet team!
