St. Lucia’s southwest coast has remained largely unspoiled, mostly because its beaches lie in the shadow of cliffs. But it was here that architect Nick Troubetzkoy and his wife Karolin built their 28-suite boutique resort, carved into the highest point of their 600-acre Anse Chastanet, offering guests incredible views of the island’s iconic twin Pitons. The look is vibrant and craftsy, with lots of wood, clay tiles and tropical colors, from bedspreads to table settings.
Bed and Bath
“Sanctuaries,” as the resort’s rooms are known, offer little in the way of mod cons — you won’t find phones or televisions here. The focus instead is on the incredible view, which is easy to take in given rooms’ open floor plan (meaning there’s no wall on one side). Take in the scenery from your private infinity pool (in Star and Moon Sanctuaries) or from the whirlpool tub in the bathroom. Your major domo (Jade Mountain’s term for a personal concierge) is available 24/7 to help arrange everything from car rentals to room service.
James Beard Award-winning chef Allen Susser likens the food at Jade Mountain to “a tropical vacation on a plate,” and the menu features such dishes as cinnamon-roasted mahi-mahi with blue crab couscous. Room service at the hotel is far from standard — the culinary team can prepare a six-course menu with wine pairings upon request. For further pampering, check into the Kai en Ciel Spa for soothing treatments, including their Wosh Cho hot stone massage.
In the Area
Jade Mountain offers plenty to keep foodies happy. There are rum tastings at the old colonial plantation of Anse Mamin, as well as tours of the resort’s organic farm followed by a cooking class. Each Thursday the resort offers a Jazzy Sunset Cruise, with live music and cocktails on a catamaran. Active types can dive via the resort’s five-star scuba center or rent mountain bikes to tackle the nearby hills. A short car ride away you’ll also find the Louis XIV Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens. Most visitors simply tour the lush grounds, but you can also opt for a soak in the thermal hot springs.
How to Get There
We were only at Jade Mountain for one night on our way back from a week of sailing, but it was a very cool experience. It is positively a couples hotel. It appeared that everyone was on their honeymoon.
AMAZING!! Honeymoon of a lifetime! Jade mountain is made for couples! its designed for couples! If you go book the room with a pool there is no reason to leave your room!
Upon arrival at UVF airport we were greeted with our driver despite booking the vacation in my maiden name Every employee at Jade address us as the newlyweds and called us MR and MRS - that personal touch is much appreciated after a long haul flight.Our transfer was by car it look around 45mins to get to the bottom of jade mountain and the last 2 miles is EXTREMELY bumpy- not for the elderly by any-means.. its jumpy shoogly bumpy wavy ! Without it though theres no character you have to remember what the end result looks like and to be honest you will only experience it if you leave the resort.
Upon arrival our bags where take to the room ahead of us our Major domo ( butler) greeted us and taken us to our room check in was after the glass of champagne and after we had taken in the breath taken views. The staff cannot do enough for you! They even booked our table for dinner that night to ensure we didnt arrive too late and they became fully booked.
Jade mountain is located the best side of the Caribbean with black sand at the beach the clear waters of snorkeling, I would 100000% recommend doing all the excursions during your visit. The Sunset jazzy cruise was fantastic!! Sulpher springs and diamond waterfall are nearby by ( 15mins by car) worth while visiting .
The facilities at Jade mountain are great! theres soo much to see and do so take advantage.
We stayed in JB2 the Sun didnt reach our room until 1130am and stayed until around 4pm .
I was very cautious of mosquito but we weren't bitten.. the turn down service fog the room and light candles etc to keep them away.
Birds do fly in and out of the room but there is something tranquil about it for me.
The food was exquisite and so was the cocktails the staff would remember your drink from the night before - I loved this personal touch. I would recommend taken the all inclusive package.
I loved everything about the place and will be back for sure !
We decided to book Jade Mountain based on its amazing review scores and breathtaking views.
It’s fair to say we were not disappointed. The customer service is exceptional from the moment you arrive to the time you leave.
You are given a phone to call the butler when require. I’d strongly recommend the all inclusive option. The food is amazing so you’ll want to eat lots!
The gluten free options in the Jade restaurant was brilliant and food best we’ve had. The chef would adapt meals to be gluten free which was really appreciated.
There’s a lot of local people work in the hotel and all seem to appreciate what the owner Nick has done in bringing more tourists into the area.
If you take time to read the book on construction of the hotel it’s quite amazing. You will see the water channels and filtration fountains. There has been a lot of effort put in to achieve the look and design of the hotel.
It’s a massive recommendation and must visit hotel.
We hope to return in the future. Thank you for a special stay.
I have been meaning to do this review but,I was doing a lot of traveling back to back. Going to keep this short and sweet. Jade mountain was always on top of my bucket list for resorts to stay in and it didn't disappoint. If you have the money do the all-inclusive plan: definitely a must it makes everything easier and less to worry about. We had 3 Major-Domos assigned to our room but, one went above and beyond. Major-Domos, Teclus was A1 all the way toward the end. We couldn't have ask for better he took care of us like a dream. All the stuff were amazing i have nothing to complain about which is a first. Definitely will go back to jade mountain in the future.
