Soufriere, St. Lucia,
Jade Mountain is a draw dropping resort property hosting a scenic view of the iconic Piti and Gros Piton mountains floating upon the Caribbean Sea. Jade Mountain, architect/owner Nick Troubestzkoy decided to do away with the front walls altogether affording you panoramic views of the towering Pitons from your indoor-outdoor infinity pool, as well as from your bed, sofa, chaise-lounge, bathroom or terrace. With the privacy of its’ guests well respected, the resorts opulent open plan Sanctuaries (they don’t have mere rooms at Jade Mountain) are so cleverly designed that even the most dedicated of paparazzi wouldn’t get a look in. Jade Mountain rises majestically over its’ sister property, Anse Chastanet with 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft, sand Caribbean beaches. Jade Mountain enjoys full access to its’ sister hotel’s boutique, spa, two beaches, PADI certified scuba center, bike facility and four restaurants, as well as bird watching, non-motorized water sports, walking, hiking and tennis. Fantastically, Jade Mountain is a tucked hillside city connected by suspended walkways and sky bridges. At the top is the Jade Mountain Club, a superb restaurant serving Jade Cuisine that is prepared from produce grown at the resort’s organic farm. Directly above it is the Celestial Terrace, a stunning spot for yoga at sunrise and a must visit for sunset and after dinner cocktails under the stars. Arrive in style: Jade Mountain has a private helipad!
