Sprawled out on 600 acres of lush tropical foliage and pillow-soft beaches, with teeming coral reefs lying just offshore, St. Lucia's Anse Chastanet Resort recalls a time before smartphones and TV, before high-rise condos and fast food restaurants. This AAA Four Diamond retreat is one with its natural surroundings, and it shows in the resort's eco-minded construction: Cottages are built around the lush surroundings, with flower blossoms and trees obscuring the suites' white-washed balconies, and some units feature an open fourth wall that lets the outside in while preserving guests' privacy. And don't worry: There is a library with a Wi-Fi connection should you need to access the outside world.
Standard rooms are slightly smaller than Superior rooms and are appointed with a queen- or king-size bed, with a view of the gardens or a partial view of the ocean, and a private bathroom. Meanwhile, the spacious and individually designed Hillside Deluxe rooms are appointed with king-size beds and Piton Mountain and/or ocean views, with some featuring a missing fourth wall, others with wooden louvre walls and open dormers, and others with separate sleeping and living areas. Both Standard and Deluxe rooms feature clay floor tiles or tropical hardwood floors, ceiling fans, balconies, and large ensuite bathrooms with a shower and toilet.
The resort offers tons of complimentary amenities during your stay, and it's not just beach towels and chairs. Make use of all non-motorized watersports equipment, including snorkel gear, windsurfers, sit-on-top kayaks, and sailboats. A boat shuttles passengers daily to a second beach at Anse Mamin, while the resort offers guided hikes through the 600-acre estate, where guests will learn a bit about the history and botany of the property. Yoga is also offered fives times a week, and it's complimentary for guests, as is the live entertainment you'll find at the Piton Bar or the Beach Bar.
Come mealtime, you'll have several restaurants to choose from. Dine on award-winning tropical cuisine at the open-air Treehouse Restaurant; sit down to a vegetarian meal, featuring produce grown on the resort's own farm, at Emeralds; and enjoy a light lunch of sandwiches and salads at True Au Diable Beach Restaurant, which transforms into an Indian-theme eatery most evenings. And before you leave, be sure to book a treatment at Kai Belté Spa, featuring five air-conditioned treatment rooms and an open-air hair and nail salon, and featuring a host of natural and organic treatments.
