"Some resorts create a kind of magic- a perfect blend of
setting anfc architecture. Anse Chastanet Resort in
St.Lucia is one of the rare few that achieves this
-Mark Rogers, Travel Agent Magazine
..."Troubetzkoy has spent 30 years challenging the travel
industry's most cherished beliefs. Rather than bowing to
received opinion on how a hotel should be, he has preferred
to draw upon St.Lucia culture, tapping the arcane knowledge
of bush doctors, musicians and masons. At Anse Chastanet,
playing with light and space, he created dynamic rooms, the
"walls" of which were sliding jalousie shutters, allowing
the shape to change at the whim of the guest. Accessibility
was never a priority....."
-Julian Allason, Financial Times How to Spend It Magazine
..."Architect Nick Troubetzkoy has made certain that his
art-filled Anse Chastanet Resort takes full advantage of
St.Lucia's exotic visual appeal. The six-hundred acre
former colonial plantation north of Soufriere has the
Pitons for a backdrop and a quarter-mile namesake cove
- The New Yorker Magazine
"The famous Anse Chastanet resort nestles into the steep
green hillside, its individually designed suites decorated
with dreamily erotic paintings. It's a jaw-dropping scene:
in fact, the beauty is so profligate that most new arrivals
seem mildly stunned. Most just roll onto the volcanic
sands, where they remain, immobile as statues, fanned by
passing butterflies. Many allow whole days to pass without
even the merest quiver of activity. A sleek Swedish Amazon
may hitch up her thong before gliding into the gently
lapping water. A buffed fiance stands guard obver his
betrothed as she dozes on a hammock, gently rocking her to
and fro. Meanwhile, the most energetic guests stagger into
the resort's spa for his-and hers Swedish -massage lessons.

"SCUBA ST LUCIA is rated as one of the world's top diving
destinations. Located in the heart of the marine reserves
at Anse Chastanet Resort, the resort provides a shallow,
protected reef where beginners can learn to dive...."
- American Health and Fitness Magazine
"Anse Chastanet is famous for spectacular diving: there's a
Platinum/PADI Scuba and Watersports Center, and boats ferry
you out to several world class dive sites along the
Pinnacles reef. But I chose to explore a lesser-known
offering: 12 miles of mountainbike trails winding through
the ruins of a 19th centure French sugarcane- and-cocoa
plantation next door. Full disclosure: I expected crappy
equipment but a fun ride. What I got was a first-class
trail system partially designed by NORBA phenom Tinker
Juarez and my choice of 50 Cannondale F800s, all fitted
with hydraulic shocks and brakes. The ride, over rolling
jungle paths, was excellent - I broke a sweat but still had
time to stop and pick wild avocados, bananas and

Not just architectural taste but chutzpa: The choicest
suites in the retreat climb a lush hillside at eye level
with the island's half mile twin peaks.
- Anthony Weller, New York magazine
"Anse Chastanet's setting borders on the surreal."
- Jennifer Quale, Connoisseur Magazine
"On the north side of Soufriere, facing the twin peaks of
the Pitons is one of the Caribbean's most enchanting
resorts. Anse Chastanet, built along a steep hillside of
tropical splendor overlooking a secluded cove, has a
setting so idyllic, you will forgive, if not forget, the
atrocious road leading there."
- The 100 Best Resorts of the Caribbean
"Don't come here for three-speed showerheads and Porthault
sheets. The luxury of ANSE CHASTANET run deeper, and
dearer. First, there's the Caribbean's most spectacular
view, a Bali Ha'i of jagged mountains soaring out of the
sea that would have sent Gauguin diving for his umbers and
indigos. Then there's the hotel's simple good taste, from
handmade mahogany bed tables to the twist of immaculate
madras on every waitress's head."
- Ian Keown's Caribbean Hideaways
"If you invest in one of the deluxe hillside rooms, you're
in for a slice of heaven. Nick Troubetzkoy, the Canadian
owner-architect, designed them to meld into the
mountainside, with louvered wooden walls that open to
stunning Piton and Caribbean vistas or to the deep green

"One of the few places that merits the cliché "tropical
paradise," this is not only St Lucia's premier dive resort,
but also an exceptional Caribbean inn. It offers warm
service, excellent food, a beach location, and first-class
- Frommer's Caribbean
"It is hard to imagine anywhere more lush than the
southwest coast of St.Lucia. In this wild green land, there
are mysterious jungles, steamy volcanoes, secret
waterfalls, thick palm forests, and, most dramatic of all,
two spectacular half mile high peaks - the Pitons - that
shoot straight up from the sea. The author Patrick Leigh
Fermor compared the "lonely spikes" to the Matterhorn,
while others have called them the eighth wonder of the
world. Yet few travelers know they exist. And although
there are many reasons to stay at ANSE CHASTANET, the most
compelling is that it gives you the opportunity to be part
of this beauty."
