Description


Rising majestically above the 600 acre beach front resort of Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain St.Lucia is a cornucopia of organic architecture celebrating St Lucia’s stunning scenic beauty.Jade Mountain Resort and Anse Chastane are under the same ownership.
Nick Troubetzkoy is a Russian-Canadian architect hailing from the west coast of British Columbia where he studied at the University of British Columbia and worked with or studied under noted west coast architects such as Ron Thom, Bud Wood and Arthur Erickson. Troubetzkoy came to St. Lucia in the early 70’s when he was offered to work with a group of architects in St.Lucia to design vacation villas on the island.

By using a vast selection of pieces from these fine furniture manufacturers, Troubetzkoy was able to individualize each suite with an eclectic selection of furnishings.
In addition, Troubetzkoy collaborated with European bathrooms manufacturers Hans Grohe and Duravit. The suites feature dramatic faucets, porcelain sinks and toilets which also are different in each room.
They are designed by the manufacturers’ teams of noted European designers such as Antonio Citteiro, Andreas Haug, Andreas Dimitriadis, Tom Schoenherr, and of course the ever ubiquitous Philipp Starck.

The living areas of the rooms are finished with tropical hardwood flooring and trims harvested in an environmentally correct way. JADE MOUNTAIN’s technicians actually visited the Rain Forest of Guyana and personally chose which trees to be used. A multitude of hardwoods has been used including Purpleheart, Greenheart, Locust, Kabukali, Snakewood, Bloodwood, Etikburabali, Futukbali, Taurino, Mora and Cabbage Wood.

The interior walls are finished in a crushed blush toned coral plaster quarried in Barbados.
The exterior is in massive rough concrete and imbued with locally quarried stone, with all the window openings framed with massive 3 inch x 18 inch tropical wood mullions and muntins which are in -filled with movable jalousie louvres. Flooring exposed to the weather is finished in quarried coral tile.



Facilities
Each infinity pool sanctuary at Jade Mountain is a carefully designed, individual work of art and architecture. All of the sanctuaries celebrate an unparalleled view of the Pitons and the Caribbean Sea.
In all of the sanctuaries, the 4th wall is open to the views while at the same time allowing for complete privacy. An additional panoramic quality is provided by sanctuaries on particular elevations and those located on corners.
Four rate categories of infinity pool sanctuaries have been created to reflect the square footage of the sanctuaries and size of pool. Also, there are five Sky jacuzzi suites.


"STAR" Infinity Pool Sanctuaries
The infinity pool sanctuaries which are between 1400 - 1800 square feet and with infinity pools averaging 450 square feet.

"MOON" Infinity Pool Sanctuaries
The infinity pool sanctuaries which are between 1600 - 1950 square feet in size with infinity pools averaging 650 square feet.

"SUN" Infinity Pool Sanctuaries
The infinity pool sanctuaries with the most commanding 270 degree panoramic view, with over 2000 square feet in size, and in particular elevated positions. The infinity pools are up to 900 square feet in size. The combination of additional square footage and amazing panorama makes these sanctuaries the most desirable for all those seeking the ultimate experience.

“GALAXY” Infinity Pool Sanctuaries
These are the sun sanctuaries JC1, JD1 and JE1 which are on the highest level of JADE MOUNTAIN and enjoy the most commanding panoramic views plus biggest square footage. Because we have been asked on many occasions to guarantee these three suites for arrival, we have decided to create a specific category for them: GALAXY

All sanctuaries feature 15ft high ceilings and have the 4th wall open to the views. All other aspects, layout and size vary from sanctuary to sanctuary. In addition to locally made fine tropical wood furniture an eclectic collection of furniture has been placed in the sanctuaries giving each one of them their own individualistic ambiance.The living areas of the rooms are finished with more than 20 different species of tropical hardwood flooring and trims harvested in an environmentally correct way. 


Jade Mountain Sky Suite "SKY" Suites
In addition to the 24 infinity pool sanctuaries at JADE MOUNTAIN, there are 5 SKY jacuzzi suites. The SKY suites are located in the lower hillside level of JADE MOUNTAIN. While the SKY suites do NOT have an infinity pool they are part of JADE MOUNTAIN and guests will enjoy all of the JADE MOUNTAIN privileges.
The SKY suites are very spacious suites of about 1650 square feet, 4 of them with the 4th wall open, yet completely private, to maximize the amazing view experience of the Pitons and the ocean. One sky suite is enclosed and air-conditioned. SKY suites feature a two level room lay out, with large and comfortable living space and open bath design, with a raised Jacuzzi tub towering above living space and also open to view.

Spa access
Restaurant, club, dinning
The Jade Mountain Club is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is live entertainment on selected evenings, ranging from one of the island's foremost jazz musicians to a classical acoustic guitarist.
The Celestial Terrace
Hovering in space above the Jade Mountain Club is the Celestial Terrace, perfect for sunset cocktails or star-gazing. One of the most breathtaking locations imaginable, the Celestial Terrace offers an unforgettable sunset panorama. Once night has fallen, watch the night sky and look out for shooting stars . A private dining experience on the Celestial Terrace can be arranged.
