You could not find a more idyllic picture of a tropical Caribbean paradise than from the terraces of St Lucia's superior luxury resort, Jade Mountain. From its spectacular hillside view you stand in the midst of lush tropical vegetation, overlooking the 600-acre beaches of sister resort Anse Chastanet, and out into the dotted 'Piton' mountainous seascape so characteristic of St Lucia. The resort has a keen interest in sustainability, so you can be sure that your stay will have no negative impact on this beautiful island. There is even an organic farm that supplies the restaurants with some of their ingredients.
The hypnotic architectural design incorporates long bridges between the resort's various outhouses and incredible infinity pools. The rooms, too, are given a seamless path from bedroom, to living room, to a private infinity pool overlooking the eye-watering scenery. In short, there is no fourth wall, only sky and sea.
The resort's boutique spa - Kai en Ciel - is truly like no other. One cannot find more relaxing and holistic surroundings in which to receive a signature massage, practise yoga or receive exfoliating body and facial treatments. You can also make use of Anse Chastanet beachfront spa, as well as partake in all the activities this sister resort has to offer, including diving and snorkelling within nature-rich waters, or exploring the tropical rainforests that surround. Attractions such as the botanical gardens, hiking the Gros Piton or volcano, and sulphur springs are easily reachable, and boats trips for shopping or deep sea fishing are also available. Dining is simple and delicious, taking inspiration from tropical culture, and of course set to one of the most awe-inspiring backdrops one could possibly imagine, you can even get involved in the harvesting of cocoa beans and create your own sweet delights at the chocolate laboratory.
