About Anse Chastanet
Anse Chastanet is a tropical, romantic hideaway, set amid the steep, panoramic green hillsides of St Lucia. Its owners Nick and Karolin Troubetzkoy believe passionately in bringing the stunning, natural environment to the forefront of the hotel through flower-filled wraparound balconies, louvered windows allowing in the trade winds and restaurant balconies that seem to drape off the hillside.
The resort offers 49 individually designed rooms using handmade furniture from the island, 30 or so of which are scattered about the lush hillside, and a dozen of which are nestled within a tropical garden, only steps away from the beach. Deluxe and Premium suites emphasise the innovative and occasionally fanciful side of Nick Troubetzkoy: in one suite, the balcony is built around a full-grown red gommier tree, while in another the fourth wall is missing allowing for incredible views and maximum integration into nature.
Dining options offer an experience to suit every need from Caribbean fine dining at the Tree House Restaurant to Emerald, a wholly vegetarian restaurant showcasing the organic produce grown on the resort farm, Emerald Estate.
Being in such a wonderful location, activities abound. Metres from the hotel beach are some of the best snorkelling and diving sites in the Caribbean. There are also non-motorised water sport options including excellent ocean kayaking. Land excursions include exclusive biking trails through the grounds of St Lucia's first colonial plantations, Anse Mamin and bird watching.
Secluded bays, individually designed rooms decorated with stunning original artworks, beautiful beaches and incomparable views to the stunning twin peaks of The Pitons make Anse Chastanet a perfect haven.
