This is a sublime and genuinely unspoilt slice of paradise where you can experience what Caribbean hotels were like before trade winds were replaced by blasts of air conditioning and when you sat watching the sunset instead of cable TV.
The whole resort makes the foliage and the flowers, the perfumes and the peaks, the sea and the birdsong an integral part of your vacation experience.
The Premium Hillside rooms take you even closer to nature, as some have the fourth wall removed and all offer picture-perfect views of the Piton mountains.
Anse Chastanet encompasses 600 acres and borders two soft sand beaches, Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin, whose crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine environment, ensuring the waters here teem with tropical fish and making it the perfect retreat for snorkelling and enjoying the underwater life. Guests here can do as much or little as they like. We'd suggest relaxing with one of the many therapeutic body and beauty treatments available at the Kai Belte Spa.
For an extra special stay, take a closer look at the Casuarina Piton Pool Suite which features a 160 square-foot pool with large deck and outstanding views. The spacious bathroom even boasts its own 'Couples Shower'.
