Jade Mountain Review
This premium-class, premium-priced, adults-only hotel is an architectural wonder perched on a picturesque mountainside overlooking Anse Chastanet Bay. The huge "sanctuaries," accessible via a very modernistic system of private bridges, exude style, luxury, privacy, and comfort in 1,400 to 1,950 square feet of open-concept living space. (Even the bathrooms are open-concept!) Each has an enormous and uniquely designed infinity plunge pool right in the sitting area; in fact, one entire wall is open to the dramatic Piton view. Guests have a private restaurant, bar, and sky-top terrace at their disposal and can also use facilities at the adjacent Anse Chastanet Resort. Given the comfort and style of the sanctuaries, though, it's no wonder that room service is so popular here. Accommodations are techno-free (no radio, TV, or telephone), although a device allows guests to communicate with the service team and Wi-Fi is available.
