Jade Mountain is more than a hotel -- it’s an experience.

Opened in Fall 2006, this exclusive resort-within-a-resort is located on the grounds of the luxurious, 600-acre Anse Chastanet.

The futuristic, multi-level building perched high on a hillside resembles a construction site from below — and to some, up close. Its stark design makes it seem futuristic, while at the same time its stone and wood exterior gives it a Stone Age look.

The building is entirely open on one side like a dollhouse, affording jaw-dropping views and the exhilarating experience of sleeping in the open air while viewing St. Lucia’s majestic twin peaks, Gros Piton and Petit Piton.

The constant presence of the imposing Pitons, in fact, is very much a part of the experience.

With private infinity pools in each room, guests can swim right up to the edge of the building and gaze at them or down into the bay.

Jade Mountain guests have access to all Anse Chastanet’s facilities, which include two restaurants and two bars, a spa, a fitness center, a tennis court, an excursion and car rental desk, two boutiques, water sport facilities, and a gorgeous beach with fabulous snorkeling right offshore.

Children under the age of 16 are not permitted at Jade Mountain.
