Luxury Destinations: This location is so exclusive, so sophisticated, and if it were edible, it would be absolutely decadent! Jade Mountain at Anse Chastanet Soufriere in St. Lucia recently opened in September 2006. The resort, situated between the twin Pitons in one of the most stunning isles of the Caribbean, is the premium travel destination.
What will become better known for its upscale ambiance and exclusivity, Jade Mountain has already been named by Luxury Resort Magazine as one of its Top Ten St. Lucia Luxury Resorts, and is on the Gold List at Conde Nast Traveler. Twenty-four suites are rated in categories by their names - Sun, Moon and Stars - and start at just $795/night. There is a welcomed absence of modern hotel amenities - no TV, radio, or phone access, just like the rest of Anse Chastanet. The venue is oh, so pristine.
In keeping with the sensuous setting, each suite is equipped with its own private infinity pool overlooking the aquamarine waters of the Caribbean Sea. Gorgeous one-of-a-kind glass tiles extend from the infinity pool to the bathroom, leaving one side of the suite totally exposed to the magical seas. At night, the tiles illuminate with fiber optics, and the suite is not only visually spectacular, but unquestionably romantic. Fine dining in the suite is customary, and consists of a unique bell-pull cord used to summon a dedicated room service or housekeeping team 24 hours a day.
The Kai Belté Spa offers the "Ultimate Forget the Outside World" treatment (in case the absence of phones and TV' haven't done the trick). If you're a seeker of adventure, jungle biking, ocean kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving are within minutes reach, as well as two silvery-sand beaches, perfect for sunbathing or kicking back and doing nothing at all.
The impeccable service and solitude is something that you could easily become accustomed to. Jade Mountain Resort boasts a view that will forever be etched in your mind, and is sure to create an experience that you will not soon forget. Call your travel coordinator immediately!
