services & activities
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 vacation experience. The estate encompasses 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 colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.
A dozen rooms are tucked in behind the coconut palms that line the beach and the remainder tiptoe up a flower decked hillside. To make the most of the panoramic views and the refreshing tradewinds octagonal whitewashed cottages come with wraparound flower draped balconies and louvered windows.
Extra-large deluxe and premium suites underscore the visionary, innovative, sometimes whimsical side of Nick Troubetzkoy: in one suite, the balcony is built around a full-grown red gommier tree; in another a flamboyant tree drapes its red blossoms around the balcony. Some have their 4th wall open entirely to the vistas, yet are completely private.
And while the sensuous seclusion of the rooms provides some guests with the perfect excuse for lolling away the day on the balcony, others head out to partake in the many activities on offer; yoga, snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis, sunset sailing, sea kayaking or jungle biking, hiking and bird-watching among the ruins of an 18th century colonial plantation.
The less actively inclined simply do nothing, lie on the beach or get pampered in the resort’s spa, Kai Belté. There is a casual beachside bar and restaurant; on the hillside, a panoramic hillside lounge and two treehouses provide the romantic setting for candlelit dinners, with musical backdrops by local entertainers. Tranquility, Romance and Adventure at Anse Chastanet.
ACTIVITIES Anse Chastanet is the only St. Lucia resort which encompasses more than 600 tropical acres and borders not only one but two soft sand beaches. There are so many activities on offer right on site than many guests feel that a return visit is needed to get to see the rest of the island!
Walking, hiking, birdwatching - all of these activities can be enjoyed on the resort property itself in addition to which there are daily scheduled excursions off property and all over the island.
Being located on the Caribbean coastline, the Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin beaches and bay are perfect for sun bathing and swimming in calm crystal clear waters.
Anse Chastanet is in the heart of St. Lucia's marine reserves and therefore offers excellent snorkelling and scuba diving right off shore. Non- motorized watersports are available from the resort watersports centre.
The old French Colonial plantation of Anse Mamin is located directly behind Anse Mamin beach and is a tropical garden of Eden with historical ruins dating back to the 18th century. The Anse Mamin plantation can be visited with one of the estate guides for a guided tour or guests can visit the plantation early morning or late afternoon for jogging on the estate trails.
The resort mountain biking centre Bike St. Lucia also operates from the plantation and the active minded will enjoy a jungle biking adventure on one of the resort Cannondale mountainbikes.
