Choice of a Beachside Deluxe or a Hillside Deluxe room including all taxes and service charges.
NOTE: All 7 of the Beachside Deluxe rooms that we reserved have been filled. There are several Hillside Deluxe rooms still available. Both accommodations are equally comfortable with the Hillside Deluxe rooms being slightly further away from the beach.
Beachside Deluxe rooms are generous in space, with coralina or clay tiles and wooden jalousie louvre windows and large balconies or patios. They are air-conditioned which is an optional feature as louvres can instead be opened for natural air flow. They have a tropical garden view and are just a few feet away from the beach and water's edge. Average size: 750 sq ft.
Hillside Deluxe rooms are spacious and are located at various hillside levels with beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea and/or St.Lucia’s Pitons. Some Hillside Deluxe rooms have the fourth wall missing entirely while others have wooden louvre walls and open room dormers allowing for excellent natural airflow. Some of the Hillside Deluxe rooms have a formal separation between bedroom and living room, others are wide open spaces flowing into each other, with either coralina tiles, clay floor tiles or tropical hardwood floors, with patios and/or balconies. Average size: 700 sq ft.
In room amenities include fridge, tea/coffee/espresso makers, in-room electronic safes, hand made bathrobes, slippers, hair dryer, Molton Brown amenities, free WiFi, twice daily housekeeping service with complimentary bottled water.
All rooms have king size beds, ensuite bathrooms with 2 sinks, shower and toilet. Upon request, extra bed or twin beds can be provided.
Round-trip airfare from Boston is included. We do plan to book airfare for everyone but cannot start to do so until January 2024.

ANSE CHASTANET is situated in the heart of the St. Lucia marine reserves and virtually surrounded by most of the island's coral reefs which are excellent not only for scuba diving but also for snorkeling. Snorkeling can be enjoyed right off the Anse Chastanet beach. The Anse Chastanet reef starts just 10 yards beyond the water's edge. The reef's remarkable ecosystem offers an amazing profusion of unusual tropical marine life in shallow calm and clear water. Anse Chastanet Reef is home to more than 150 different species of fish. Anse Chastanet guests can obtain snorkel equipment on a complimentary basis from the scuba center at the south end of the beach. Snorkeling can be enjoyed unsupervised at the south and north end of the bay. In addition, guided boat snorkel trips are offered to other nearby reefs at a small charge.
