Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Anse Chastanet is scattered over two secluded beaches and amongst 600 acres of tropical gardens, outlined by views of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Gros Pitons. 

Rooms at Anse Chastanet

Each room at Anse Chastanet has been lovingly designed with wraparound flower-draped balconies, handmade furniture from local woods and vibrant tropical prints. Some have their fourth wall entirely open to the beautiful vistas – yet still manage to be completely private. There’s no television or air conditioning here: the incredible Piton view provides the entertainment and the trade winds keep temperatures under control.

Food & Drink

Anse Chastanet is host to a range of dining opportunities, all of them using organic produce from the resort’s farm, Emerald Farm, in the Soufriere Hills. For a gourmet fusion of modern, East Indian and Caribbean cooking, Apsara is the ideal restaurant. On the beach, you will find a casual bar and restaurant, whilst on the hillside, two treehouses provide the romantic setting for candlelit dinners – often accompanied by local musicians.


The beachside Kai Belte Spa is a real treat for total relaxation and pampering. Alternatively, daily yoga and fitness sessions are available for those seeking a little more activity.

Activities at Anse Chastanet

Nature is your playground here, with 600 lush, tropical acres to explore and two soft sand beaches. The surrounding waters are some of the best on St Lucia for snorkelling and diving, while the hotel’s 42-foot yacht is the perfect way to enjoy an Anse Chastanet sunset.

The hotel also offers tennis, sea kayaking, biking through the jungle, hiking and birdwatching among the ruins of an 18th-century colonial plantation. Best of all, we like Anse Chastanet’s 'do nothing' philosophy, which encourages you to slow down, put your feet up and simply admire the views.
