With turquoise waters, exquisite beaches, palm trees and glorious sunshine, Saint Lucia has everything one would hope for when planning a trip to the Caribbean. However for the premier traveller, Saint Lucia and Jade Mountain, the exquisite boutique hotel raised high in the hill tops of Soufriere overlooking the dazzling piton mountains, can also offer a whole lot more!
Some assume that Caribbean islands such as Barbados and Mustique are the top spots for luxury however, a visit to Jade Mountain and St. Lucia will alter the minds of even the most selective travellers.
With a new first class cabin available on British Airways flights to Saint Lucia, a luxury holiday to Jade Mountain can begin at the airport as you are pampered and whisked seamlessly from the London smog to paradise beaches. On arrival in Saint Lucia, you can choose to continue their trip in style with helicopter transfers available to and from Hewanorra Airport providing a view the island’s landscape, luscious rain forests and views of the breathtaking piton mountains from the air. Once safely on the ground, you will be welcomed by your personal major-domo with a refreshing Caribbean cocktail and led to the ‘sanctuary’ which awaits at the end of an individual walkway. Inside, be wowed by the breathtaking views that replace the room’s fourth wall and for those staying in a Galaxy, Star, Moon or Sun sanctuary, the stunning infinity pool that lies within. Open to the elements, all of Jade Mountain’s sanctuaries are open plan and spacious with four poster beds, inside and outside seating areas, his and hers sinks and a two person Jacuzzi bath complete with ‘in tub’ mood lighting, ideal for couples looking to enjoy a relaxing soak and glass of champagne.
During the day enjoy exquisite visits to the diamond falls or to Jade Mountain’s very own plantation, the Emerald Estate where a private guide will take you on a sensory journey demonstrating the stunning and exotic plants and birds whilst also encouraging them to experience the taste of the fresh fruits, coco and other delights that are all grown within the plantation grounds.
Come sunset, set sail aboard your own private yacht for a champagne cruise over the glistening crystal blue waters underneath the majestic piton mountains. Furthermore, if this is not special enough, for those fortunate enough to catch a glimpse, whales and dolphins can often be spotted swimming alongside the boat.
As night falls, enjoy one of Jade Mountain’s lavish private dining experiences; from dining under the stars on the celestial terrace to sampling the carefully complied ‘wine gourmet’ menu with food pairings or learning how to make ceviche during a private cookery class with Executive Chef Jonahan Dearden within the comfort of your own sanctuary. Alternatively, for the ultimate luxury dining experience enjoy a cast away dinner on Anse Mamin Beach. Set up on the shore of this secluded beach, you can dine under the stars in complete privacy sampling a gourmet five course dinner including only the finest ingredients such as scallops, reef lobster and Chateaubriand for two.
