Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet overlook St. Lucia’s twin Piton peaks, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Jade Mountain’s bold design was conceived by architect and owner Nick Troubetzkoy whose philosophy is to build in harmony with Caribbean nature and the environment. Individual bridges lead to exceptional open-walled sanctuaries making it one of the Caribbean’s most mesmerizing resort experiences. In the sanctuaries, the bedroom, living area and an extravagant private infinity pool glide into one another to form extraordinary platforms that seem to float out into nature. With the fourth wall entirely absent, Jade Mountain’s sanctuaries are stage-like settings from which to embrace Saint Lucia’s full scenic glory. Jade Mountain and its sister property, Anse Chastanet enjoy one of the Caribbean’s most scenic settings, nestled in a 600-acre estate with two soft sand beaches bordering pristine coral reefs. Both hotels have consistently been named the world’s top Caribbean hotels by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. /
