My wife and I selected Anse Chastanet because of its location, breathtaking views, sterling reputation and story. All of it was true, and our total experience was excellent. One defining feature of both the island and especially this hotel is that the locals really delight in sharing their marvelous good fortune with the visitors. Everyone we met seemed genuinely happy to be living and working on St. Lucia, and it showed in their welcoming attitude and warm embrace (both figuratively and literally!) of us tourists. The management of Anse Chastanet clearly hires only the most people-oriented staff and allows them to be themselves -- a perfect combination to make the guests feel welcome and honored. Our room was spacious, comfortable, had a view of the Pitons, and was quite close to the common areas -- so luckily we had little trouble negotiating the hills. We enjoyed the amenities we used during our short stay, especially the restaurants and both beaches. On our final morning, we attended a remarkable presentation by the hotel's knowledgeable manager, Peter, on the history of the island and how its successive population arrivals came together to become today's beautiful islanders. It's a unique Caribbean story and explains why St. Lucia's culture seems so different from what we've experienced on other islands. Getting to the hotel from the airport is an experience in itself, especially the final challenging portion over the access road, but the destination is well worth the effort. We highly recommend Anse Chastanet.
Nice to escape the cold weather back home and enjoy the warm breezes in St Lucia. Loved our room-6B-had views of Pitons and of our beach/bay. Room was essentially a screened porch-didn't need AC, ran fans all night and ended up using a light blanket...if noises will keep you awake then bring ear plugs-lots of birds and frogs. Rains in the mornings kept the temp pleasant. Umbrellas, hair dryers, two 110volt outlets, coffee maker, small fridge and banana bread provided in room. Excellent wifi connection in room and at restaurant. Very comfortable bed. Rooms exceptionally clean.Staff was focused on making our stay pleasant. Excellent customer service with a smile. Johnathan was very helpful. The ladies at the front deck graciously found a charging cord for our laptop.Food in all restaurants was excellent. Vegetarian options are delicious. Melvin is a knowledge and entertaining bartender. He can make any drink you want! The beach at Anse Mamin is worth the boat ride or easy walk over. It is impeccably clean and the beach attendant is helpful and attentive. Highly rec burgers and ceviche-yummy!Take a walk with Menos while you are there. He truly is Father Nature and knows so much about the vegetation and history of St Lucia.Snorkeling at the base of the Pitons (arranged thru the hotel scuba shop)was the highlight of our trip. Many fish! Better than the snorkeling off the beach.Watch sunset from Jade Mountain rooftop-incredible views! Take a tour of one of their spectacular rooms. Don't forget to arrange this with staff before you venture up there! Peter gave an informative bar to table chocolate tour-rec doing this. He is very passionate about his job and chocolate! Very interesting and enjoyed the tasting.The only warnings/things to be aware of are: the extremely rough road coming up to the resort and the hour drive from the airport as well as the many, many, many steps at this resort. It is built into the side of a cliff so be prepared to climb steps from your room to the beach. (if you cannot climb the steps and need a ride to your room from the beach, the staff will drive you there). We had a wonderful time at Anse Chastanet and highly rec others to visit.
Other than the drive to and from the airport, which is everything outlined already on trip advisor, this is a magical destination!Our 30th wedding anniv. was special, and the resort did not dissappoint!So many wonderful people, from Janelle, who greeted us, Cherwin, my massage guy!, Tyson, our fun and wonderful bike guide (and coconut opener!) to Nick the manager and Meno the waterfall guide....excellent folks who embraced us and allowed us to enjoy their company, sparkling personalities, and joy for this beautiful location!Some personal suggestions...Burgers!!!! anse mamin beach, bike tour -- tyson was very interesting, friendly, and knowledgeable...read the staff bios outlined in your info book in your room...great getting to know the backgrounds of the staff!
A hotel with a distinct nature twist because of its amazing setting . you can switch off here or join in many activities but you do need to be reasonably fit to climb the steps. there are shuttles available but most of us want to get fit so we pretend we don't need them and huff and puff from the beach. some people will settle for a beach room but that really is not what this place is about. its all about breath taking views from your bed and being waken up by beautiful finches expecting breakfast! this is a bird wonderland not forgetting the frogs oh and unfortunately the mosquito's!the rooms do vary tremendously so i would suggest you do your research thoroughly and I do feel the hotel could do a lot more by publishing plans of the rooms with views from each room so you know what you are getting. I would have paid for a premium room if I had seen full details before going. our room 5B Superior was tiny but with a large balcony and views to die for from bed. 200 steps to the beach though.The food is amazing unlike Marigot Bay! the menus change every day and the quality of the ingredients is wonderfull (mostly home grown).The staff are great and so helpful. The beaches (2) are beautiful. The Plantation is spectacular. Snorkeling is excellent.Yes arrival its along a very long bumpy drive up from Soufrierre and you don't really want to do that too often but that is the charm of this place.We were here for a week but I would have loved more.Moans? rooms do need a make over as the local art/ craft look is dated but i believe this is in progress.Karolin-a personal plea - PLEASE remove all plastic straws from the beach venues. surely you know how dangerous these are to sea life. i found many straws in the sand and we know where they will end up!Spa- you really do need a state of the art spa to share with Jade. After all the exercise you need massage but I was not attracted by the existing spa!Baths in the room would have been welcomed for aching limbs and the shower pressure certainly needs improving!you are paying top dollar here so better facilities are expected.Having said all this I cant wait to go back to enjoy the nature and those views so do not let me put you off visiting.
We were dropped on AC beach by boat for a couple of hours snorkelling. The snorkelling is good but the cordoned area is small.Most of the beach is owned by the exclusive hotels..the small public side is nice but we advised charges were $11US per sunbed & $5US to use the rest room! the beach was empty & we explained we were there for only an hour or so... no matter ..’rules is rules’. Maybe we’re tight but we were not prepared to pay that much for a pee & to recline for an hour!
