Standing on top of its sister hotel, Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain offers views of the towering Pythons, with architecture inspired by the natural beauty of St. Lucia.

Some suites also feature an infinity pool that creates the illusion of infinity space between you, the Caribbean Sea and the Pythons. However, recent guests warned that modern conveniences such as TVs and telephones are not available in any accommodation.
Some also say that while the exposed walls offer majestic views, it also means you’re up close and personal with some of the island’s towering wildlife and the occasional thunderstorm.
In addition to beautiful views, Jade Mountain offers an extensive list of island sports, including snorkeling in Anse Chastanet Bay, sunset sailing on a resort cruise, and scuba diving with experts from the on-site PADI dive center.
