Anse Chastanet

Surrounded by 600 acres of lush jungle, this beachfront St. Lucia high-end resort is equally known for its secluded, romantic setting as for its well-established on-site PADI Five Star Dive Center, Scuba St. Lucia.

Local dive guides have been exploring the island’s reefs for decades, bringing an intimate knowledge of the macro life—think frogfish and seahorses—on the resort’s house reef as well as of cleaning stations, drift dives and all the underwater excitement this tropical destination packs in.

Those who want to give back can take the PADI Reef Life and Renewal courses to learn the process of coral restoration before helping at the resort’s coral nursery.

The resort itself is known for its unique design, loved by honeymooners and nature types for rooms featuring an entire glass wall opening to the Pitons, the destination’s signature green volcanic spires. Choose from eight room categories, including the Jade Mountain rooms with infinity pools overlooking the sea and mountains.

A highlight of the Anse Chastanet experience is the restaurant and its ever-evolving menu, including five-course meals with wine pairings. Anse Chastanet also serves up an on-site micro-brewery, hiking trails and two beaches offering watersports, including paddleboarding and kayaking.

Guests can also add on bird-watching or mountain biking excursions in the jungle. The destination offers it all, whether you’re looking for an active escape with lots of time underwater or a more mellow getaway with ample time to relax and recharge on the two soft-sand beaches.
