Anse Chastanet is a luxurious resort in St Lucia which emphasises the natural beauty of the island and its landscape, set on a luscious 600 acre tropical estate bordered by two beaches with incredible views of the famous Pitons. Designed and built by owner and architect Nick Troubetzkoy, the attention to detail is stunning - from the real inclusion of tropical trees and flowers into the actual building to hand crafted, local materials for furnishings and sculpture as well as the superb selection of art works. The hotel came eighth in the 'Top Resorts in the Caribbean' category in the Conde Nast Traveller Magazine 2016 Readers' Choice Awards.
Each of the 49 rooms at Anse Chastanet are individually designed to maximise the views of the Pitons or the sea, and are furnished with colourful fabrics and local wood. Twelve rooms sit at beach level in the tropical gardens while the others wind up the hillside to maximize the views and the trade winds, meaning that most of the rooms remain cool naturally. Some rooms have wooden louvered walls which open onto private terraces to provide panoramic views and others are missing a fourth wall entirely.
Dining at Anse Chastanet is varied and exciting thanks to the six restaurants and two bars. Whether you choose a casual beach grill or fine Caribbean cuisine, the resort offers a wide variety of food in a range of settings, from sand under foot to fine dining on the hillside.
There is a vegetarian restaurant, Emeralds, which like all of the restaurants here focuses on showcasing local produce which is sourced from the resort’s own hillside farm. The resort also has a chocolate laboratory on site which offers chocolate tasting and truffle-making classes.
Anse Chastanet provides its guests with a variety of ways to explore St Lucia whether on land, above the water or beneath it! The resort offers fantastic diving and snorkeling directly from the beach and the friendly dive team is on hand for any guidance or training you may require. Bike tours and hiking trails are available around the luscious resort estate where guests can also enjoy bird watching tours and explore the old plantation ruins.
The resort has two beaches, one offering beach service, so if doing absolutely nothing is your idea of a holiday then Anse Chastanet is perfect! On the main beach guests only need to raise their flag to request drinks and snacks, while Anse Mamin is more secluded and is reached by a complimentary water taxi.
Anse Chastanet's spa, Kai Belte, is located overlooking one of the resort’s beaches and offers a wide range of treatments by professionally trained therapists including massages, aromatherapy, hair treatments and even reflexology.
Due to Anse Chastanet’s location, many St Lucian attractions are nearby and the concierge team at the resort will be happy to arrange tours and activities such as a visit to Pigeon Island, a trip to the Caribbean’s only drive in volcano or a hike of the Pitons.
Weddings at Anse Chastanet are spectacular and the resort offers a range of settings from a barefoot beach service to romantic services in the plantation ruins within the resort’s estate. Please contact one of our travel specialists to discuss your wedding requirements.
