Anse Chastanet Resort in St. Luci offers a classic Caribbean get away with stunning views of both the Piti and Gros Piton mountains and the Caribbean Sea. It’s an ideal romantic destination, for those looking for a beach destination, this private 600-acre estate borders two powdered-sugar-sand beaches ideal for snorkeling with coral reefs just offshore.

Traditional Caribbean Resort

The Anse Chastanet resort offers traditional Caribbean hospitality with a friendly, laid-back staff. The architect owner, Nick Troubetzkoy, created the hotel to make nature an integral part of the vacation experience. However, it’s important to know upfront that this “classic” Caribbean getaway also means no air conditioning or TV.

For those who really want to escape from the day-to-day rat race to spend time with the one they love, it’s an ideal destination. Guests have plenty of fans available to stay comfortable and the unique setting with panoramic views where foliage and flowers meld with mountain peaks and the Caribbean lets guests enjoy the beauty of nature instead of TV.

Accommodations

Anse Chastanet Resort features whitewashed tradewinds octagonal or rectangular cottages designed with flower-draped balconies and louvered doors. Twelve of the rooms are nestled behind coconut palms lining the beach.

From there, the rest of the rooms meander up the hillside amid greenery and flowers. Rooms provide seclusion and privacy making this a perfect romantic Caribbean getaway. Rooms are spacious and some of the deluxe suites have a wall that opens entirely to the vistas while remaining totally private.

Things to Do

Island resort life offers plenty of laid-back relaxation for those who want it, but it offers plenty of opportunities to explore the environment and have fun on the water, too.

  • Snorkeling and Diving: Anse Chastanet is surrounded by coral reefs. Snorkeling is a popular way to spend hours exploring tropical marine life in the shallow, calm, clear water. The reef is home to over 150 species of fish, and guests can use complimentary snorkeling equipment provided by the resort.
  • Windsurfing and Sunfish Sailing: Guests can try their hand at windsurfing, or sunfish sailing on the calm Caribbean side of the island. Lessons are provided for beginners.
  • Ocean Kayaking: “Sit-on-top” kayaks are available to guests at the watersports center on a complimentary basis. Guides offer training to those who need it.

Whether you want to soak up the sun on the beach, sit back and enjoy the tropical setting, or play in the water, the Anse Chastanet Resort has it all.
