About Anse Chastanet
You can still find classic Caribbean at the Anse Chastanet Resort on St Lucia's quiet southwestern coast where two magical peaks, the Pitons leap from the sea.
Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy believes passionately in nature so he created a hotel that makes the foliage and the flowers, the perfumes and the peaks, the sea and the bird song an integral part of your holiday experience.
The estate sits in 600 lush tropical acres, bordering two soft sand beaches. Not only do you get a World Heritage Site anchored by the twin peaks on land, the resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colourful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.
More About Anse Chastanet
The waters of St. Lucia are excellent for both scuba diving and snorkelling. You can learn to dive at the PADI dive school, or explore by snorkelling in the Anse Chastanet reef which is home to more than 150 different species of fish. Other watersports on offer include windsurfing, Sunfish sailing and ocean kayaking.
There are 12 miles of private trials through the lush jungle which novice and experienced bikers can ride along and see the abundance of colourful vegetation, babbling rivers and fantastic bird life.
If you prefer to relax the day away, the two beaches are some of St. Lucias finest with beach butlers providing a food and beverage service, cool towels, sorbets and fruit treats. There’s also a luxury spa that provides a wide range of treatments, therapies, rituals and massages.
Please note that there are approximately 100 stairs leading from beach level to mid-hillside level, thus making the property unsuitable for those with walking difficulties or cardiac problems. A complimentary shuttle service from beachside to hillside level is provided any time it is requested.
Children are welcome from age 10. In July, August and September, the minimum age requirement is reduced to 6 years.
