The staff was delightful. No A/C but there was a delightful breeze that was enough to cool off. The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. The location of the Resort is perfect, private but not too far from Soufrière so that one could explore the city! The food in the city was a nice surprise, enjoyed it almost more than the food at the resort. If you are going to go is completely worth going with the AI plan and if you tip for the money to reach the helpful staff it is best to pay them directly instead of adding it to your credit card bill on check out. The yoga and yoga instructor were fantastic! I really enjoyed my morning yoga on the beach and the instructor was so helpful in ensuring that you are doing the poses right for the best impact while on the beach listening to the ocean lap up on the beach. I did a solo trip and felt very safe for the entirety of the trip. There are 170 steps to the beach from reception but after once or twice it becomes easier to go up and down. Can't say enough how enjoyable this resort was and trip was! I almost didn't write a review as I don't want too many people knowing about this gem!
Our company scheduled our BOD retreat at this property. The hotel is a companion with the Jade Mountain resort which is located on the hill above the beach property. Our six night stay was excellent. The food and service were impeccable. This is the perfect getaway for attentive, quiet hospitality. It does require a 60 minute van ride from the airport through Soufriere. This is definitely on my repeat list of vacation spots!
Very good hotel, very pleasant staff. A winding unpaved road to get to the hotel from Soufriere but it really depends on the skill of the driver. A good driver can make the drive in well under 10 mins.great rooms, our room had no a/c but overhead fans and a great balcony view of the Pitons. Transport pick ups organized. Sulphur Springs Bath a must do. 100 steps down is its own beach.One thing, I find the restaurants ( more than one!) overpriced . Delicious menu though
We stayed at Anse Chastanet last week (July 2017) and had an incredible time there from start to finish. The spacious room and balcony had an unbelievable view of the Pitons and the ocean. We were a bit nervous before leaving because of the no A/C, but we were very comfortable with multiple ceiling fans in the room and on the balcony. We also had 2 floor fans. With the turn-down service, our citronella lamps, mosquito coils and mosquito netting around the bed, we did not see a single mosquito the entire stay! We did not have any bugs at all! The balcony has 2 lounge chairs, a dining table with 2 chairs and another sitting area with 2 chairs and a coffee table, all with the spectacular view. We were in one of the highest rooms (Hillside Premium). The rooms are open or have plantation shutters. You will hear a chorus of tree frogs and cicadas each night. There are some serious steps to climb, but we found the shuttles readily available and never an issue. We went to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and the staff made the trip so perfect. They surprised him with a bottle of champagne in the room. At dinner, the band came to our table and sang Happy Birthday. We were very impressed with the service at the resort. The meals were all excellent. Everything was flavourful and we always found something interesting on the menu. They also offer a completely vegetarian menu. One of my favourite treats was the shrimp cocktail served from the beach restaurant and delivered to our hut. Not to miss: Dave in the Piton Bar makes a killer Banana Daiquiri! The French Toast in the Treehouse for breakfast was also top notch!The main reason that we selected the resort is the easy access to Scuba St. Lucia (right at the beach). My husband did 12 dives with them and we also went on a guided snorkelling excursion to Superman’s Flight. They also let me go as a bubble watcher on one of his trips where I was able to take some fantastic shots of Petit Piton from the boat. They were super helpful the entire week. We had some troubles with a dive computer and also the light on our Sea Life camera. They helped to trouble-shoot the issues and generously lent us parts that ended up saving the experience. We got a locker to house our snorkelling gear and my husband’s scuba equipment so we didn’t have to worry about transporting it back and forth from the room. The divemasters and boat captains were very knowledgeable, friendly and extremely helpful.Most days we were the first ones on the beach and the last ones to leave at the end of the day. Junior was always spreading happiness on the beach (lemon grass infused face towel, eucalyptus spritz). Every day there was a treat handed out (frozen mango, fruit kabob) The snorkelling at the Anse Chastanet reef and Turtle Reef at the other end of the beach was extraordinary. We saw an octopus, sea turtle, moray eel, sea snake, parrot fish, etc. On our last full day, we took the Jungle Water Taxi (operated by a gem of a guy named Jungle (junglé)) to Mamin Beach where it is even more secluded. White sands and crystal blue waters beckon from your private hut. At the beach restaurant, we tried what was slated as the World’s Best Burger, served on a pita bun and with roquefort cheese. It was amazing! The drink special there was the BBC (banana, Baileys and Coconut Cream - sooo yummy)!The week at Anse Chastanet was magnifique! We are planning to return as soon as possible! The ONLY downside is the sensory overload you will feel at the airport when you leave. After a week of disconnecting from the noise of the city and media, the cacophony of the airport will have you missing the gentle breeze of Anse Chastanet and will be shocking to your system.
We spent a long anniversary weekend at Anse Chastenet---breathtaking views, delicious meals and most accommodating staff all around. B sure to book an air conditioned room---not many, worth it though.
