Jade Mountain, St Lucia

The latest sensation from St. Lucia-based architect Nick Troubetzkoy, Jade Mountain is tucked away on a panoramic hillside within the Eden-esque gardens of the Anse Chastanet hotel. And whilst Nick’s original chef d’oeuvre still ranks as an upscale and unapologetically rustic getaway where it’s possible to view the Pitons without even getting out of bed, Jade Mountain takes this eco-luxury concept one step further.

Here you’ll be swept away by his bold architectural designs which seem to vie with the Pitons themselves for a sense of the dramatic. The 24 ‘infinity pool sanctuaries’ are individual works of art complete with infinity-edge pools, whirlpool tubs designed for two, and forth walls opening out onto the mesmeric views. Three different grades await (Star, Moon and Sun), even the lead-in category at least 1,400 square-feet in size with a swimming pool averaging 450-square-feet. The absence of TVs, radios and telephones mean you can concentrate on your surroundings ... and each other, of course.
