The luxurious Anse Chastanet Resort is complimented by the natural scenic beauty of St.Lucia’s soft sandy beaches bordering on blue coral reefs. Other spectacular surroundings include the Twin Pitons Mountains offering an amazing backdrop as St Lucia’s world heritage site. Located on a hillside beach, Anse Chastanet boasts 49 rooms, each designed uniquely and hidden away on a tropical garden or dotted around the hillside. Resort facilities include two bars and restaurants, the Kai Belté spa and for the adventurous there are mountain bike facilities with a 12 mile trail, a centre for kayaking and a 42 ft sailing yacht! There are also boutiques, a library, an art gallery and even a cocoa plantation where you can help harvest beans before creating marvellous treats at the resort's very own chocolate laboratory.
There is a shuttle service running between the mountainous resort and the beach but for those who are fit, there are lots of stairs to climb to the resort! The resort features one of the most accessible diving sites in the Caribbean Sea with a reef plateau 45.75 metres deep including a second beach located a 5-minute boat ride away. The diving centre offers full equipment as well as beginner lessons, certification courses, and off beach dives. The resort takes its environmental responsibilites very seriously and as such you can rest assured that the activities you partake in during your stay will not impact negatively on the local surroundings, the resort even runs its own farm.
For those interested in less demanding activities take a sunset cruise on the resort's yacht or go deep-sea fishing. If pure relaxation is the goal, the resort offers tours to the Soufrière's "drive-in" volcano springs and mineral baths. Yoga classes also run 5 days a week.
