Jade Mountain’s high-rise vistas of The Pitons are breathtaking.

(PRESS RELEASE) – St. Lucia’s iconic Jade Mountain Resort has received more top international travel accolades while its sister resort Anse Chastanet continues to be recognized by the world’s most discriminating travelers.

Naming Jade Mountain the number one “Best Hotel in the Caribbean”, U.S. News & World Report rhapsodized about the resort’s high-rise vistas of The Pitons, with architecture that draws on St. Lucia’s natural beauty, and referenced the varied list of island sports, including snorkeling in Anse Chastanet’s clear waters, sunset sailing on the resort yacht and scuba diving with experts from the on-site PADI dive center.

With its rankings based on analyses of industry awards, hotel star and user ratings, U.S. News & World Report praised the resort’s ambiance: “As the site of the finale of the 14th season of ‘The Bachelor’, Jade Mountain knows how to create a romantic atmosphere. Couples can arrange for an in-room massage with the Kai en Ciel Spa or a private dinner on the Celestial Terrace. For other meals, there’s the Jade Mountain Club helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef Allen Susser.”

Turning to Jade Mountain’s sister resort, U.S. News & World Report reported that “Anse Chastanet, spread across 600 tropical acres, is flanked by two sandy beaches. The resort’s 49 rooms are either perched on the verdant hillside or nestled beach level within a tropical garden.” The resort was rated number 49 in the world.

The media outlet reported recent guests loved the relaxing, natural setting and their access to a host of activities, from yoga to jungle biking, and scuba diving in a marine reserve offshore. “To round out this nature-inspired retreat, travelers have their pick of five dining options, including one inside a treehouse,” they noted.

Meanwhile, Islands magazine declared Jade Mountain winner of its Readers’ Choice in its list of the top luxury all-inclusive resorts of the world, while Big 7 Travel, the global travel site, listed the resort among the world’s “50 Most Romantic Hotels in the World.” Big 7’s Top 50 list positioned Jade Mountain as number six in the world.

Karolin Troubetzkoy, executive director of both properties, was delighted by the latest of many accolades bestowed on her two resorts: “It’s heartening to see how these media houses noted the complementality of the adjoining sister resorts because that is precisely the sort of harmony with nature and each other which my husband Nick Troubetzkoy (the owner/architect) was aiming for.”

Islands magazine wrote about Jade Mountain: “There’s nothing quite like it. Even though there are other resorts with a similar concept – a nonexistent fourth wall, so your room is open to the sea and sky – we can honestly say that Jade Mountain guarantees you a one-of-a-kind luxury experience.”

Noting its editors and writers scoured the globe to find the best all-inclusive resorts based on “standout offerings, from top-notch dining options and cool bars to over-the-top suites and white-glove butler service,” Islands magazine reported on the “mesmerizing” rooms, called sanctuaries, “designed in a stunning blend of wood and stone elements. They’re massive (1,400 to 2,000 square feet) and layered atop each other, each with its own equally large (450 to 900 square feet) infinity pool offering unobstructed views of St. Lucia’s twin Piton peaks and the sapphire-blue sea.”

Troubetzkoy credited resort staff for their commitment to the sustainable aspects of the sister resorts: “We could not have achieved such mixing of luxury and conservation without the priceless contributions of our dedicated staff and their deep knowledge of the area.”

With only 78 rooms in total between the two sister resorts, the company employs more than 550 team members, 97 percent of whom are from the surrounding communities.

About Jade Mountain

Rising majestically above the 600-acre beachfront resort of Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain Resort on St. Lucia’s south-western Caribbean coastline is a cornucopia of organic architecture celebrating St. Lucia’s stunning scenic beauty. Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy has expanded upon his philosophy of building in harmony with Caribbean nature in his creation of Jade Mountain St. Lucia.

  1. Yawwwn. The things that are celebrated that are of minimal issues of pertinence to St Lucians. O well one of the many multi million dollar and numerous award winning hotels perched on the hilltops of fair Hellen while the town and town folks below live in near decapitated conditions deserves much to be celebrated is mind bottleing to me. One can never read of or see their social contributions to St Lucians on any level to date but there are those who are bent on shoving down our throats their international accolades and acclaims which often leaves a bitter taste in the mouth of the average st Lucian who cannot afford to go there

    • Excellent point the only benefit to st.lucians are jobs which are mostly likely unpaid. This businesses hardly pay any Taxes import their supplies duty free and the profits leave this country. So these hotels getting awards has no consequence to the average st.lucian

    For a boomerang to work properly it must be crafted by the master craftsman. Be a people who will follow my voice even if it is impossible. As you gain confidence and expertise, I will guide you to teach others. Go where you are sent by my hands but you will have to walk and face circumstances to move up. I am a God of mercy, growth and rebirth, it does not matter what has come your way. I will dry your tears and strengthen you. I say to you this day, stand and be counted. Tell me what you are passionate about that I can use you to impact my kingdom. Do not wish for tomorrow, not only are you a warrior but you will have powerful wisdom.

Regarding the witchcraft sent against my children, they will finish what their enemy started.
    They will ignite a fire in this earth, I will restore every hope you ever had. My justice will flow through you so do not fear the storm for I am the storm. What if you knew that my love for you is so great and I will bless what is mine?
    It is now time for my Army to do what they were trained to do. My transformed ones will hear with one heart, I will use them for a very short time. The end has come and I will not delay. The end is here and many are not prepared, harken to the voice of your creator. My children, you must prepare quickly for what will transpire. Man has chosen the way of chaos and I have given it them. There is a shaking coming like never before. Beware my children, you will lose many you love. Are you prepared to walk alone? If only my children would listen and live, cling to my word. Remember, the enemy can transform into an angel of Light. I am the God who do my will and sacrifices for me. My children, why do you threat? Do you trust me?
    Events will proceed as planned, it must be. Speak now,” Son of Man,” Speak to the weary, the lost. I have not forgotten my promises to King David. My judgments come quickly. Who is worthy to escape? When I see you fall on your knees, I will hear you. When nation leaders fall on their knees, I will answer. Abomination after Abomination, I see it all. Stand on the rooftop and proclaim my return. Many sits back and do nothing. When you see those things happening, I am coming for my called and chosen, Get Ready!
