Anse Chastanet

We are just back from a great week at Anse Chastenet. This place was perfect for us: great beach, beautiful and extensive grounds, gorgeous beach-access reef for snorkeling and diving, friendly and attentive staff, art-filled rooms and public buildings, fabulous views. We arrived at midnight to a beautiful cottage-like octagonal room filled with flowers and opening out to a wrap-around porch, and also a gourmet platter of food in the frig. We awoke in the morning to birds and sunshine and each day continued like that. The no air conditioning wasn't a problem because of the hillside breezes, fans, and shade from a large Mimosa tree. the guests were of all ages and from various countries, making a nice mix. Any questions?

I was so excited to read of your trip. My daughter and I are going to Anse Chastenet Apr.7-21. We have some questions. Is tipping permitted? What currency is used? We're Canadian, and one reason we chose St. Lucia was to avoid the U.S. exchange rate. Did you travel around the island? We have a "superior room" up the hill with open walls. Any problems with creepy crawlers? As we are spending $14000. on this trip, I really want the extras. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!!

we are just back from our second trip to anse chasanet, the first in november of last year and last week. you will love it, we are already planning to go back again.

both times we stayed in 7e(superior) at the top of the hill. it is a long steep walk up to it but the view is the best one at the resort.

jay down on the beach will serve you drinks from the beach bar and monica is the wine steward in the resturant, both of these people along with the rest of the resort staff are very pleasant and helpful.

the food in the treehouse restuarant is gourmet and changes daily(b.t.w. it is also excellent) and the buffet on tuesdays and saturdays on the beach are good also.

while on our two trips we went for a full day sail, tour by cab of the island, a trip to the mineral spa and a day trip to the grenadines.

the beach is black sand so i would suggest taking dive boots or water shoes so that you don't burn your feet.

if you have anymore questions feel free to email me.

Hi! Thanks for the offer to answer questions. How was the snorkeling? Was the coral reachable from shore alive?

I just re-read my question and the grammar is so bad, it sounds like I am asking whether we can reach the coral alive! What I meant to ask is of it is possible to reach from the shore, coral that is alive.

Just got some pics back from our trip last March (over 1 year ago). They were in one of those disposable, underwater cameras.

Anyway, I am amazed how this shot near Anse Chastinet (as I recall) came out. We walked (wear sneakers) north of their main beach (which is also how one could get to the Jungle Biking area; boat is another way) and came up with this shot (cut and paste to your browser):
