SOUFRIERE, St. Lucia, Monday March 12, 2018 – The distinguished Fodor’s Travel, a global leader in travel guides for more than 80 years, has listed Anse Chastanet Resort in St. Lucia as the winner of two Fodor’s Best awards.
Fodor’s Travel, whose website is used by some five million people every month to plan trips, awarded Anse Chastanet its coveted recognition for being one of the hotels with the best views and one of the best beachfront hotels in St. Lucia.
“Several of the individually-designed guest rooms on this verdant hillside have a fourth wall that’s open to the stunning Pitons view. Down below, the beach is busy with snorkelers, sunbathers, divers, kayakers, and the occasional catamaran or fishing boat,” the guide reported in its description of the resort.
On hearing of the twin awards, Anse Chastanet Executive Director Karolin Troubetzkoy said she was “humbled by the recognition from one of the world’s oldest and most distinguished travel authorities. This recognition by Fodor’s Travel really is a big deal and a huge boost for our fabulous staff, who work so hard to ensure our property honors those who choose us for their well-deserved vacations.”
Nick Troubetzkoy, architect and owner of Anse Chastanet, believes passionately in nature and designed the resort to make the surrounding environment an integral part of the Anse Chastanet vacation experience. The estate encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft-sand beaches. Not only do visitors get a UNESCO World Heritage Site anchored by the twin Piton mountains on land, but the resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.
With such a unique setting as his canvas, Nick Troubetzkoy was inspired to design a one-of-a-kind resort. He was committed to an environmentally conscious approach before “green” became fashionable, something for which the resort has become renowned. Anse Chastanet consistently receives recognition for its sustainable initiatives, most recently achieving Travelife Gold Certification together with its sister resort, Jade Mountain.
