The colorful Anse Chastanet in St. Lucia.

SOUFRIERE, St. Lucia – St. Lucia’s storied Anse Chastanet resort has been recognized as the best value experience in the Caribbean for the New Year.

Recognition of St. Lucia’s iconic resort is embedded in the 2015 Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence, created to acknowledge, reward and celebrate outstanding hotels in the high end sector.

“We know we have something really special for discerning travelers and we are pleased that both travelers and sellers of travel have given us the thumbs up,” said Karolin Troubetzkoy, Executive Director of Anse Chastanet.

She also reported that sister resort, Jade Mountain, received top honors in the “Best for Romance” category.

The annual Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence are a trusted mark of quality, recognized by luxury consumers and travel professionals alike.

The winners and finalists were determined by the combined results of online voting, guest feedback and local expert reports.

According to its website, “the colorful Anse Chastanet on St. Lucia oozes romance throughout its airy open-plan spaces. Perched at different heights on the hillside down to beach level, Anse Chastanet is the creation of architect owner, bon viveur and eco-warrior Nick Troubetzkoy who came to St. Lucia in the 1970s and never looked back.”

“Vibrant interiors are dressed with jolly Matisse-inspired paintings and Nick’s beautiful designs pay homage to the island’s curvaceous volcanic landscape such as the blossom festooned balconies that lean into the stunning scenery,” the description reads.

Also recommended were the resort’s PADI five-star scuba center, miles of hiking and mountain biking trails to explore within the 18th-century plantation, which is part of the resort’s 600-acre estate. Invigorating couples massages, yoga, bird-watching, non-motorized water sports, walking, hiking and tennis are all available at Anse Chastanet, while guests benefit from a variety of restaurants offering Caribbean fine dining, vegetarian, East Indian-Lucian fusion and a relaxed beach-side grill. The resort also has a private helipad.
