The Caribbean island of St. Lucia changed hands fourteen times before celebrating its independence, and although the reason for this war was not related to the beauty of its landscapes, the disputing countries, France and England, knew that the island was undoubtedly a rough diamond. Located in the Caribbean Sea, north of San Vicente and the Grenadines, and south of the island of Martinique, St. Lucia is one of the most fascinating tourist destinations in the Caribbean, and its beauty is such that when Nick Troubetzkoy decided to make a resort in the middle of this paradise knew from the beginning that it would in perfect harmony with the flora and Caribbean funa.
So came the Jade Mountain, as bold as attractive with 24 sanctuaries and five perfect suites for honeymoons, weddings, romantic getaways and leisure travel. It has an organic philosophy that makes each stay the hotel an unforgettable experience.
And, in their efforts to blend the resort with its surroundings, Nick Troubetzkoy devised a set of large spaces where bedroom, living area and infinity pool glide to form floating platforms that blend with nature through open walls; all interconnected with individual bridges, cobblestone columns and viewpoints at different heights that leave its lucky guests speechless.
Each of the 24 shrines of Jade Mountain has an invisible wall with an infinity pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the Pitons, eroded two volcanic cones that have become a symbol of this tiny nation.
Depending on their size, the Jade Mountain Resort offers guests four categories of shrines, all equally paradisiacal: Star Shrines Infinity Pool, Luna Infinity Pool, Sun Infinity Pool and the Galaxy Infinity Pool. The living rooms room are topped with wood from over 20 tropical species, selected especially in jungle of Guyana.
Another delight of the resort are its five Sky suites on the lower level of the hillside Jade Mountain. Although they have infinity pool, the Sky suites feature a large space, a comfortable lounge and open plan bathroom with hot tub that rises above an area where the landscape seems limitless.
In order to have a real immersion in nature and get away from everyday routine and addiction to everyday technologies, Jade Mountain offers among its services no phone, no radio, no TV and the Internet access is on request only. Among the other hotel facilities are restaurants and bars, great spas, a wide range of water sports, as well as two soft sand beaches.
The objective of the resort is that all guests make the most of the landscape of Santa Lucia mountains which are a protected ecological reserve declared a UNESCO World Heritage.
