Fodor's Expert Review Jade Mountain

Anse Chastanet Rd., Soufrière, Soufrière, Saint Lucia Fodor's Choice

This premium-class, premium-priced, adults-only hotel is an architectural wonder perched on a picturesque mountainside overlooking the Pitons and the Caribbean. The guest accommodations—accessible via a very modernistic private bridge system—exude style, luxury, privacy, and comfort in 1,400 to 2,000 square feet of open-concept living space. (Even the bathrooms are open-concept.) Two-dozen huge Sanctuaries have an enormous and uniquely designed infinity plunge pool in the sitting area; in fact, one entire wall is open to the dramatic Pitons view. Five Sky Suites have similar setups but feature a two-person whirlpool above the living space instead of an infinity pool. Guests have a private restaurant, bar, spa, fitness center, and sky-top terrace at their disposal and may also use the beaches and 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 tech-free (no radio, TV, or telephone), although a device allows guests to communicate with the service team, and Wi-Fi is available in the Sanctuaries. No children under 15 are permitted.
