Jade Mountain - St. Lucia - Caribbean Exclusive 5 Star Luxury Resort



Jade Mountain is an exclusive luxury 'resort within a resort' with 24 suites at St. Lucia's famed Anse Chastanet Resort, in a truly romantic and magical setting poised high overlooking St. Lucia's Piton World Heritage site and the Caribbean Sea.

Anse Chastanet's architect/owner, Nick Troubetzkoy, has expanded upon his philosophy of building in harmony with nature by introducing a new level of sophistication in the individually designed, extraordinary Jade Mountain infinity pool suites. Each bedroom, living area and extravagantly sized private infinity edge pool seems to merge to form an amazing platform floating in space. With only three sides, the effect is like a stage, from which you embrace glorious views of the island's twin World Heritage Pitons.

Imagine floating in your infinity pool at sunset surrounded by softly flickering candles...Imagine fine dining in the privacy of your suite with the amazing World Heritage Pitons in the background. Imagine the sound of gentle waves lulling you into a soft slumber... Expect grand sweeping spaces beyond your imagination, with your bedroom, living area and extravagantly-sized private infinity pool gliding into one another to form an amazing platform floating in space, with the fourth wall missing entirely - the result is a stage-like setting from which to embrace the full glory - and infinite views - of St. Lucia's twin Pitons and the shimmering Caribbean Sea - a view you are not likely to ever forget.

One of the most breathtaking locations imaginable, the Celestial Terrace offers an unforgettable sunset panorama. Once night has fallen, watch the night sky and look out for shooting stars . Let the culinary team create a private dining experience for you on the Celestial Terrace. Drenched in exotic beauty and erupting with flavor Jade Mountain nourishes both the body and soul. It's "Jade Cuisine" created by James Beard award winner, Chef Allen Susser, is a brave new world of tropical flavors. His cuisine is exotic and delicious, with a history of fusion.
