The Hotel

Over 600 acres of verdant tropical forest bordered on one side by the aqua blue of the calming Caribbean Sea is the setting for Anse Chastanet Resort in St Lucia. And living and working in such a aesthetic location it is not surprising that for Nick Troubetzkoy the owner/architect and his wife Karolin, the Executive Director of Anse Chastanet being at one with nature and your community is “what you do”.

Nick’s architect’s eye and guiding principles ensured he didn’t clutter the beach with bedrooms, but instead he sprinkled a few individual cottages across the hill so his guests would wake to the most spectacular views over the sea and to the dramatic Pitons, St Lucia’s World Heritage site.

Oprah said one of the sites you should see are the Pitons in St Lucia and there is no better place to do that from than at Anse Chastanet Resort just outside the old town of Soufriere.
At beach level, but not on the beach, there are 12 deluxe rooms set in tropical gardens ideal for families and divers. The other 37 are hidden amongst the trees on the hill with breath taking views for which the hotel is famed. Many of these rooms have an entire wall missing thus framing the Pitons perfectly. And don’t worry - most mosquitoes are acrophobic!
The 3 restaurants at Anse Chastanet are either located on the beach or on the hill. 5 nights a week the beach restaurant is converted into ‘Apsara’ an Indian restaurant where the 2 chefs from Bombay have created something incredible by fusing the tastes of the East Indies with the West Indies. Whilst at Treetops you may like a pre-dinner cocktail before peering over the balcony to the roots of the trees some 60 feet below you, before choosing from the very varied international menu. For something different try Emerald’s the hotel’s vegetarian restaurant which is supplied daily with fresh organic produce from the hotel's own farm.

With two beaches Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin, those that wish to do no more than sway in a hammock swung between two shady palms or lie under a thatched umbrella, these powder soft sand beaches will satisfy even the most demanding of beach Connoisseurs. But for the more active, through large wooden gates on Anse Mamin is a gateway to the resorts plantation and 12 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. The trails range from introductory with no more than the occasional tree root to tip you off your bike to the super energetic uphill climb for the enthusiast. A stroll or guided tour under the plantation’s thick canopy is an ideal way to escape from the heat of the early afternoon sun. For the ‘birder’ Anse Mamin is also home to some of St Lucia’s rarest birds.

For the water enthusiast, Anse Chastanet not only has a whole host of complimentary non-motorised Watersports, but also is the gateway to some of the best diving in St Lucia. Snorkellers need never leave the bay as frequent guests include sea horses and turtles, whilst the house reef aqua equivalent of Spaghetti Junction with shoals of fish criss-crossing in every direction. For the diver, the furthest of around 20 dive sites is 20 minutes away by boat.

For couples thinking of getting married or honeymooning in St Lucia, Anse Chastanet offers the perfect setting. Weddings are such a personal and special event in a couples life, you cannot buy an ‘off the shelf package’. So whilst the basics may have a common thread, couples marrying here discuss their plans with our Wedding co-ordinator, who fashions the couple’s dreams into the special day.

Getting to St Lucia and getting around when you’re there:

From the UK both British Airways (www.BA.com) and Virgin Atlantic (www.virgin-atlantic.com) fly nonstop to St Lucia from Gatwick and flights can be booked online or via a travel agent or tour operator. Flying inter-island tends to be with LIAT (www.liatairline.com) which operates much like a bus service hopping from one island to the next.

St Lucia is 27 miles long by 14 wide, covered in tropical and rain forest and lots of peaks and of course valleys. The north of the island is the commercial end with many local bars and restaurants that are popular with tourists. Most of the large hotels are here as well. The Soufriere region where Anse Chastanet is situated is scenically the most attractive, although limited in outside evening activity. Probably the quickest way to get round is by boat as the roads tend to curve and hug the side of the hills and mountains. Local taxis and buses are available, but the buses are probably not ideal for longer journeys as they are always very full and tend to stop a lot. Driving is relatively easy and car hire is available from around £25 a day. On arrival and departure it’s recommended you leave it up to the experts and pre-book a transfer approximately £45 each way).

Activities and facilities

Restaurants and Bars

Treehouse Restaurant
Located on the hillside, the Treehouse restaurant serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. There are two parts to the restaurant, the main part is open air (a roof, but no walls), and overlooks lush tropical foliage and the Caribbean Sea. The second part is for the brave, a wooden balcony that hugs the side of the main restaurant, but just a shade closer to nature. Look over the railing and you look down some 80 feet to the roots of the trees – conclusive proof the restaurant is ‘tree top’. The cuisine is a blend of Caribbean and other tropical world cuisine experiences. The dinner menu changes daily and is served in a romantic candlelit ambiance.

Emerald's - Vegetarian Cuisine
The Piton lounge is home to Emerald's offering an entirely vegetarian menu, showcasing the organic produce grown on the hotel’s farm Emerald Estate in the Soufriere hills.

Trou Au Diable Restaurant
Located right on the Anse Chastanet beach, here you can enjoy daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lunch menu is massive, so eat as little or as much as you like, but don’t forget to try the soup.
On Tuesday evenings, all guests enjoy a special Caribbean culinary evening in the Trou au Diable restaurant, which commences with a cocktail reception at 6 30 p.m. The atmosphere is festive with the entire stretch of beach in front of the restaurant lit up by flambeau candles.

Apsara
Six nights a week a little corner of St Lucia transforms itself into a superb Indian restaurant. Two Chefs from India came to Anse Chastanet to create an innovative fusion of modern East Indian and Caribbean cooking, a celebration of St Lucia historical and cultural ties with East India. In other words some of the best curries you’ll ever taste.

Beach Grill
For those looking for a light grill menu and a casual beach setting, then the beach grill in the beach bar will fit the bill.

Bars
There are two bars, one on the hillside close to the main restaurant and one on the beach. Both are open daily and close late.

Room Service
A Room Service menu is available

Activities for the lounger

The Beach
Beach aficionados will appreciate the ever changing colours of the sand as the sun crosses overhead. The silver soft sand gently shelves away in crystal clear waters, a paradise for snorkellers with an abundance of marine life just feet from the shore, including sea horses and turtles. Whilst the twin beaches of Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin are public, getting to them is a different story. If your idea of paradise is sitting under a shady palm surrounded by verdant forest and clear Caribbean waters in front this is just the place for you.

Kai Belte Spa
Located at beach level, the spa offers a full range of massages and treatments performed by qualified staff. Those preferring a location a little closer to nature can enjoy a massage in the Spa pavilion located on the hill overlooking the sea.

The Boutique
Located close to the beach, the boutique has a range of resort wear, local artworks, gift ideas plus of course the usual essentials normally forgotten in the haste of packing.

Activities for the active

Diving
The best dive centre in St Lucia and amongst the best in the Caribbean. At certain times of the year, whales pass by, but St Lucia is not the place to come if you’re looking for pelagic. All the dive sites, around 20, are within 20 minutes by boat, so no two tank dives needed. Wall, drift, wreck and night diving are all available. For more detail have a look at Scuba St Lucia’s site www.scubastlucia.com

Watersports
There’s a full range of complimentary Watersports available including Snorkelling, Windsurfing, Sunfish Sailing and Ocean Kayaking. Ocean kayaking is not the large yellow plastic whales you see on every beach, but a fast and streamlined transport. If you haven’t used an ocean kayak you’ll need an introductory course. You can then join one of the escorted excursions (at extra cost). Of course the yellow whales are also available for paddling close to shore. If you’d rather let someone else do the hard work, there are half day, day and sunset cruises available on the resorts private yacht.

Mountain Biking and Plantation Tours
In the next bay around is Anse Mamin a former fruit plantation which the hotel is busy restoring. Here is the home of the hotel’s own hiking and biking trails; over 12 miles of tracks ranging from the easy to the difficult. Top of the range mountain bikes are available for hire, or if you prefer you can wander through the forest on foot. Complimentary tours of the plantation are run daily and introduce you to the plants, nature and history.

Bird Watching
You don’t have to be a ‘twitcher’ to enjoy watching birds. The colour and variety is fascinating and no special equipment is required, but a pair of binoculars will bring you closer to all the secrets of the forest.

Tennis
There are 2 floodlit tennis courts available for both day and night use.

The Rooms

It is very difficult to describe the rooms at Anse Chastanet in words, so do look at the images above. The style is unique bringing you as close to nature as possible without the use of canvas. It is not just about the views of the Pitons and the sea, but closer in there’s a whole world order in the forest which you can almost reach out and touch.

The Superior rooms are the originals, already in place when Nick Troubetzkoy bought Anse Chastanet. They are located on the hillside and are octagonal or hexagonal in shape, with 2 twin beds or one king size bed and with an Sea and Piton view.

All beachside rooms offer a tropical garden view and are just a few steps from the water's edge, but do not have a beach or sea view.

Hillside Deluxe

Extremely spacious and individually designed, some of these rooms are in a very open-air style with the fourth wall missing and some with dramatic open roof dormers. Some rooms have a formal separation between bedroom and living room; others are wide open spaces flowing into each other. Clay floor tiles or tropical hardwood floor, king size bed, wooden jalousie louvres, ceiling fans, balconies, and very large en-suite bathrooms with 2 hand basins, shower and WC, Piton and/or Sea view.

Premium Hillside

Offering picture postcard perfect views of the Piton Mountains and the surrounding sea, these are the best rooms in the house. The views are enhanced by virtue of their very elevated and strategic location. Some Premium rooms have the fourth wall missing. All Premium Hillside rooms have ceiling fans, clay floor tiles or tropical hardwood floors, wooden jalousie louvers and very large en-suite bathrooms.
