Tranquility, Romance, Adventure: What were Caribbean hotels like when you sat watching the sunset instead of cable TV? You can still find that Classic Caribbean at Anse Chastanet on St. Lucia’s quiet southwestern coast where two magical peaks, the Pitons, leap from the sea and the mountains are covered with luminous greenery.Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy believes passionately in nature. So he created a hotel that makes the foliage and the flowers, the perfumes and the peaks, the sea and the bird song an integral part of your vacation experience. The estate encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft sand beaches. The resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.With such a unique setting as his canvas, Nick Troubetzkoy was inspired to design a one -of-a-kind resort. A dozen rooms are tucked in behind the coconut palms that line the beach and the remainder tip toe up a flower decked hillside, taking advantage of the captivating scenery all around. Anse Chastanet’s ever growing art collection provides a visual feast of its own. There are impressive wooden sculptures and plaques, earthy burlap compositions, painted “sky ceilings” and vibrant acrylic paintings invoking memories of Matisse and Picasso.And while the sensuous seclusion of the rooms provides some guests with the perfect excuse for lolling away the day on the balcony, others head out to partake in the many activities on offer; yoga, snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis, sunset sailing, sea kayaking or jungle biking, hiking and bird-watching among the ruins of an 18th century colonial plantation.

My husband and I stayed at Anse Chastanet in February 2021. This was our eighth trip to the Caribbean, but first to St Lucia. I chose this property based on internet reports of how vegan friendly it was (I am vegan). The communication with the resort prior to our arrival was great; they arranged transport from the airpot and notified me when St Lucia entry requirements had changed. The drive from the airpot to the resort was gorgeous and our room had an incredible view of the Pitons from our balcony. We absolutely loved the balcony. The room had no AC (i believe only a few of the pricier rooms do). That was not a big problem for us because the ceiling fans worked well. A bigger issue was the lack of blinds for all the windows/doors. There was no sleeping late for us because the room got so bright once the sun rose. Other that that issue, the room was fine. It had a safe, a very nice bathroom, and a fridge. The resort bought us bottled water every morning. There are a lot of stairs at the resort, but was well communicated so we knew what to expect. The beach was nice enough; it is pretty small but you do have access to the second beach at Anse Mamim. The beach chairs are nice and the towel service was great. Due to covid, the dining options were consolidated down to the one beach restaurant for lunch and dinner. I assume under normal circumstances there is much more variety for meals but during this trip the menu was pretty limited, especially as a vegan. With regards to covid, the resort is taking it very seriously and you are not likely to contract it there. Everyone wears face masks, there are hand sanitizer stations, and temperatures are checked before dining. There was some confusion with trying to schedule our covid test at the resort. The US requires anyone flying in from out of the country to present a negative covid test within 3 days of boarding. I had to ask about this several times before we were able to get an official appointment. It would have been great to book the test at checkin so that was all taken care of and we didn't have to keep going to Reception to ask about it.

Our family recently returned from a 7 day all inclusive stay at Anse Chastanet. Room: great location room 10d, walking distance from the beach, tennis court, main restaurant and scuba center. If not in beach villa, lots of stairs to the other rooms. One of the limited rooms with AC. Shower with 2 sinks, safe, mosquito net beds, deck with table/hammock and lounging chairs. Beach: amazing water, beach cabana, service, snorkeling. Current can bring in lots of jelly fish. We brought long sleeve swim wear, which reduced the stinging. The black dotted do not sting. Great kayaks, paddle boards and windsurf equipment. Restaurants: great food and drinks all day long! We did 2 beach dinners with wine pairing, the lion fish specialty dinner was the most interesting. Room service was also offered. Service was amazing, Natasha/Marilyn were exceptional. Scuba: 7 dives, all were great ... along with the buoyancy training and lion fish harpooning. Carmen, Carliso and Ariel were amazing and made it extra special. Turtles, lots of fish, great coral, visibility great, eels, barracuda, sea horses, lobsters, crabs and lots of shrimps. Swarm of biting shrimp avoid if you can. Chocolate lab onsite: Peter was awesome, we had so much fun learning about how chocolate is made and making our own chocolates, highly recommend this excursion. Mixology with Melvin: lots of tasty rum and mixed drinks to try. Melvin is funny and makes really good rum mixtures!! Jungle Bike with Tyson: great bike ride through the jungle, you need to be a intermediate biker to do it. Tyson spent time to go over all the plants/herbs and the historical buildings which was very worthwhile. Deep sea fishing with exodus: another great day with captain Dell and Arnold. We caught barracuda and a wahoo!! PCR testing onsite: easy process at the hotel, no worries about not getting the results or any other issues!! We will definitely go back and highly recommend the resort. It was truly a great experience for all of us, even our 8 & 15 yo. The team at Anse really go above and beyond to make the trip amazing for all. The resort has a store with amenities if you forget anything, the resort also supplies bug spray, aseptic spray, robes, slippers, ear plugs, eye covers. Lots of couples and a handful of families.

I spent a marvelous week at Anse Chastanet. The dive shop and staff are amazing. They pamper you by setting up your gear and transferring it from tank to tank. The guides and boat captains are a lot of fun and stress safety. The room was very comfortable. The mattress was firm and the ocean sounds were soothing. The rooms lack a TV, but I found it nice to unplug. The resort does have WiFi and the coverage is good. I will most definitely return!

Visited this resort just before US instituted their requirement for Covid testing for guests returning from international travel. Loved everything about our stay. This visit was planned so I could get scuba certified which I was able to do during my stay. The diving was gorgeous. I am a nurse and appreciate the COVID safety measures in place. Hotel staff was very professional but so warm and friendly. The hike up Grand Piton was very difficult. I did it in sneakers but hiking shoes would have made it much safer. Do get the walking sticks as they are a big help. We also loved the mountain bike tour at the plantation. Yes there are a lot of steps to this resort but the food is so delicious it was worth it.! Dinner at Jade Mountain was worth the upcharge. Felt like I was in a James Bond movie. It did rain most days for a short period but this in no way impeded any of our activity! Highly recommend this resort for those that want to travel during the pandemic. The resort was less then 50% capacity and we found ourselves many times on the beaches by ourselves!

The excellent service from this resort began even before we arrived, with my husband swapping e-mails with the front desk, ensuring that they could tailor our holiday as much as possible to meet our requirements and relax as soon as we arrived. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Anse Chastanet (AC) over Christmas and New Year. We came back thoroughly relaxed and very brown. We had to book AC at relatively short notice as the resort we had originally reserved had to close due to Covid-19. However, this is by no means a “second choice” resort – just the opposite. We stayed for 14 nights and were very lucky to get the room we requested (Premium Hillside 7E). We revised our room choice 3 times after studying previous reviews, photos, and the hotel website, and are very glad we did – this is an amazing room, and the resort was very accommodating with our requests for change. This room is situated right at the top of the resort and has no closed walls so we were able to enjoy not only the beautiful views (The Pitons on one side and the resort and the Caribbean on the other) but also the breeze coming through (therefore no need for air conditioning) as well as the birds visiting us every morning whilst we enjoyed a cuppa on the expansive veranda. There is plenty to do, both on land and sea, so you can be as active or relaxed as you like. My husband took full advantage of the mountain bikes at Bike St Lucia and hiking trails in the extensive resort grounds and came back with some great photos. The highlight was him climbing Gros Piton for the second time (first time was 9 years ago when we stayed at the Rendezvous). He also enjoyed kayaking and snorkelling. The snorkelling off the beach was excellent, proved by the number of visiting boats with snorkellers from other resorts. We enjoyed going on the beach every day and although we had to go down 380 steps to get to it and 380 back up to our room, this did not stop us from doing so! (there is a shuttle service from room to beach and vice versa so don’t let the steps put you off getting a room high up). The steps helped burn off some of the extra calories put on from the extra food and drink, so had an additional benefit! The beach service was fantastic and we were kept regularly supplied with drinks (and food when required). Just plant a yellow flag in the sand and someone is there to take your order within minutes. It got to the stage where some of the servers pre-empted our flag and asked us if we wanted “the usual”. In the evening, we enjoyed eating at either Trou Au Diable (Beach Grill), Apsara (East Indian Caribbean Fusion) or Treehouse (Caribbean Fine Dining). The menus do not change so when staying for 14 nights, it is nice to have the option of more than one place to eat. Apsara was definitely our favourite menu and we were lucky enough to meet the Chef and compliment him on his food. All restaurants maintained a high standard of food and service. It’s worth mentioning that we were on the All Inclusive plan, which I think is definitely worth paying for the variety (and quantity) of food and drink on offer. It was amazing how the resort was able to offer such extensive choice with the Covid restrictions we’re currently living through. The resort deserves huge praise for the manner in which they applied the restrictions, which was not intrusive, but made us feel as we were in an extremely safe environment, but took nothing away from our holiday experience. All the staff led by example, and politely reminded any guest who forgot any of the protocols. Another experience, which is a must, is a visit up the hill (or round the corner for us) to AC’s exclusive sister resort – Jade Mountain. Just to have a look round somewhere that looks as if it has come out of a James Bond movie, or to have lunch or dinner with even more stunning views. We had dinner there, which was excellent and well worth the $50 each surcharge on top of our AI rate. (A drink at their bar is included in the AC AI rate) The entertainment there was also of very high quality. All the staff were very friendly and attentive throughout our stay, engaging in conversation and always quick with a greeting (from the groundsman to the Manager). We could not fault any of them.
