USA Today Readers Vote Jade Mountain "Best Caribbean Resort"
and Anse Chastanet "Best Caribbean Beach" in Annual
10Best Readers' Choice Awards

Jade Mountain Club Also Named One of the 10 Best Restaurants in the Caribbean

February 21, 2017—Jade Mountain Club and Anse Chastanet have earned three Readers' Choice awards from 10Best, one of USA Today's travel web sites. Jade Mountain was voted "Best Caribbean Resort" and Anse Chastanet was voted "Best Caribbean Beach." Jade Mountain Club restaurant was also named one of the Top 10 Caribbean Restaurants.

The two hotels were the only Saint Lucian properties to win 10Best awards. “We are absolutely thrilled to earn these honors from 10Best and USA Today, and to be in company with some of the most prestigious resorts in the Caribbean,” said Karolin Troubetzkoy, owner and marketing director of Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet.

Set on Saint Lucia's southwestern coast, Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain share a lush, scenic 600-acre estate overlooking the Gros and Petit Pitons, 2,500-foot twin volcanoes that are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and have come to represent the island itself.

Jade Mountain, which was singled out as the best hotel in the entire Caribbean region, is the intimate and luxurious resort at the upper half of the estate. The hotel is architect and founder Nick Troubetzkoy's fitting tribute to Saint Lucia’s dazzling beauty. It's known for its incredible panoramas, generously sized infinity pools and details like carefully handcrafted furnishings sourced from local materials. Troubetzkoy's uncompromising architectural vision also helped bring to life details like dramatically suspended bridge walkways (instead of hallways) and open layout within the rooms. Each suite, called a "sanctuary," is missing a fourth wall to better show off the spectacular Piton and sea views.

Perched high above the sanctuaries is the acclaimed Jade Mountain Club restaurant, a perfect place to watch the sunset. "Wrapped around an infinity pool overlooking the natural grandeur of Saint Lucia, the Jade Mountain Club serves seasonal, modern fusion cuisine highlighting the tropical flavors of the Caribbean," says 10Best. The cuisine is overseen by the highly acclaimed chef Allen Susser, who has won the James Beard Foundation's Best Southeast Chef award. Menu highlights include kingfish ceviche, giant prawns, Chateaubriand steak and artisanal chocolate made from locally grown cacao beans.

At the lower part of the property, two beaches are set on crystal-clear bays that are part of a reserve protecting an expansive coral reef teeming with tropical fish. Anse Chastanet, which 10Best readers selected as the Best Caribbean Beach, is directly in front of the resort. As 10Best says, "Those lucky enough to be sprawled out on the sands ... enjoy stellar views of the Piton Mountains and snorkeling just 10 yards from the beach."

To determine the winners, a panel of Caribbean experts partnered with editors to pick 20 nominees for each category. The top 10 winners were then determined by popular vote, with each voter permitted to cast one digital ballot daily during a four-week period. The USA Today Travel Media Group's web sites, including 10Best, rank among the most-visited travel sites in North America as measured by comScore.

Both Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet have received numerous accolades such as placement on Travel + Leisure's T+L 500 and World's Best Awards lists, the Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List and Readers' Choice Awards, American Express Travel's Top 25 List and BRIDES magazine's round-up, “The 10 Best Honeymoon Resorts in the Caribbean.” Most recently, Jade Mountain was included in the National Geographic Society's new full-color book, The World's Most Romantic Destinations, as the recommended hotel for Saint Lucia.
