Jade Mountain Resort offers extraordinary views of the Pitons and exquisite open-design rooms, perfect for a romantic getaway in the Caribbean.
A boutique hotel affixed to the side of a mountain and overlooking the shore from around 100 feet above ground, Jade Mountain Resort may be one of the most architecturally unique properties in the world. Guests here find themselves surrounded by natural beauty in an open-design wonderland, where each of the 29 immaculately-decorated rooms features a missing fourth wall facing the stunning mountain scenery.
And when it comes to those rooms, there’s a reason Jade calls them “sanctuaries.” Accommodations, most of which have their own seamlessly integrated infinity pools, are spaced far apart to maximize privacy and are largely tech-free—something ideal for anyone looking to unplug from the modern world. Additionally, the property has a strict no kids policy, so none of the distractions one expects from family-friendly resorts will ruin your intimate getaway. Since you’ll likely spend a good amount of time at the luxury resort, a meal package is highly recommended. The main dining facility, the Jade Mountain Club, specializes in gourmet cuisines from all over the world and a stellar wine list, while sister resort Anse Chastanet offers Caribbean and Indian fare just a short shuttle ride away—which is also how most guests get to the beach.
For many who stay there, Jade Mountain Resort is the main attraction—a tropical playground for adults that feels worlds apart from the outside world. Still, some may want to wander beyond the property, even if that means simply taking a shuttle bus to sister resort Anse Chastanet, where guests at both resorts are free to dine and access the beach with snorkeling, kayaking and other watersports available.
Quieter than other Caribbean islands, St. Lucia has little in the way of shops, restaurants and nightlife options, though nearby town Soufriere does have a handful. Guided tours to some of the surrounding nature preserves, which include the Tet-Paul Nature Trail, Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens and Sulphur Springs Volcano Park are also popular options. Just remember to bring a towel along if you go to Diamond Falls or Sulphur Springs, as both feature restorative mineral baths well worth soaking in.
