Luxury, but understated in a good way, resort
After 10 years of St. Lucia being on my bucket list, my husband and I booked the trip. We are in our mid-fifties and active. We wanted to go to Anse Chastanet because of the diving, mountain biking, food, and positioning of the resort near the Piton's. The drive from the airport was about 45 minutes and we coordinated this with the hotel so we didn't have to worry about it. I wouldn't go to Anse without being on the breakfast and dinner package. The food was wonderful but expensive so it was nice to know the two main meals were included. At the breakfast buffet I would ask for foil and pack a couple of ham sandwiches for lunch.
The scuba diving centre was fantastic. The food was excellent and I was surprised that they had such variety on their menu's. The desserts were 5 star as well. Each night they would have music which was always fun to listen or dance to.
We didn't do a lot of excursions but did do the Afternoon Sail (excellent) and the Mountain Biking. The Mountain Biking was good but not great. I think if they invested a little more in the facility it could be amazing. The bikes were good. Maybe I'm not a good judge because I bike a lot. The average person would probably be satisfied.
The Jazz boat cruise was also fantastic. We didn't go on it but heard it was great. They call it Jazz but really the music was broader and really upbeat.
On our last night, we had dinner on their sister resort, Jade Mountain. That was amazing.
