Anse Chastanet Resort

Anse Chastanet Rd., Soufrière, Soufrière, St. Lucia

This resort is magical; spectacular rooms—some with fourth walls open to the stunning Pitons view—peek out of the thick rain forest that cascades down a steep hillside to the beach. Deluxe hillside rooms have a balcony, tile floors, handmade wooden furniture, madras fabrics, and impressive artwork. But no communication devices, technology, or interruption: it's delightfully peaceful. Diving, jungle biking through the estate's 600 acres, and ocean kayaking are premier sports activities; chocolate lovers will enjoy the on-site "bean to bar" plantation tour. Rejuvenate afterward at the Kai Belte Spa. Be prepared, though, for the bone-crushing dirt road between the town and the resort and the steep climb to most rooms. There is a helipad, so you can get to the airport by helicopter if you prefer. A water taxi offers an alternative way into town, or you can simply revel in the gorgeous isolation. Shuttle service is available to negotiate the 100 steps between the beach and the hillside rooms.
