Jade Mountain Resort

Luxury open-air suites with private infinity pools

Jade Mountain is a romantic, floating oasis located above the 600 acre beachfront resort of Anse Chastanet. The architectural design is beautiful, as architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy has organically incorporated his philosophy of building in harmony with the scenic St. Lucia landscape. Not only is it beautiful, but it is bold, as individual bridges lead to stunning infinity pool sanctuaries and rugged stone-faced columns shoot toward the sky. The spacious room layout features bedrooms, living spaces and a private infinity pool that seamlessly glide into each other. Rooms are missing a fourth wall, which allows for breath-taking views of the gorgeous Caribbean Sea.
