Why Stay At Jade Mountain
One of the world's most exclusive resorts, perched high above its beachfront sister property, Anse Chastanet; suites are missing a fourth wall, for open-air views of St. Lucia's Piton Mountains.
Located at the highest point of the island, near the west coast town of Soufrière, Jade Mountain wraps around a hillside, its exterior all curves and rough stone. Inside, each of the 28 suites is unique, but they all share impressive features: infinity pools or jacuzzis, 15-foot ceilings, and loftlike architecture—even the raised bathroom is essentially part of one huge space. Walk into the living room and it seems as if you've walked into the Pitons: suites have only three walls, offering open-air, panoramic views. Designed and owned by Russian-Canadian architect Nick Troubetzkoy, the resort has bold and organic architecture that celebrates the natural beauty of St. Lucia.
Strap on your hiking boots for a five-hour guided trek through the Piton mountains ($75 per person).
Be sure to book the Ménage-a-Spa treatment at the property's spa: the treatment features three therapists working simultaneously on a deluxe manicure and pedicure and a facial designed especially for your skin type ($231 for 90 minutes).
Arrive at Hewanorra International Airport (UVF), which is approximately 17 miles (55 minutes) from the hotel.1000 Anse Chastanet Road, Soufrière, Saint Lucia, Saint Lucia
