Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain celebrate coveted Condé Nast Traveler 2012 Reader Choice Award
On October 16, Condé Nast Traveler unveiled the results of these annual Readers' Choice Awards, now in its 25th year, ranking the best cities, islands, cruise lines, airlines, hotels, and resorts worldwide. A record number of 46,476 readers participated in the voting, rating 370 hotels, resorts, and cruise lines above a score of 90. In total, the readers elected 1,306 winners.
"Every year, the most discriminating travelers in the world (our readers) pick the world's superlative hotels, resorts, airlines, cruise lines, islands, and cities," said the magazine's Editor in Chief Klara Glowczewska. "
St.Lucia's Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain Resorts were voted to be among the TOP 3 Caribbean Resorts, on position 2 and 3 respectively with an overall score of 95.4 and 95.1% missing out on the winning Number1 position by a mere 0.4%.
The overall score is made up from individual ratings for the resorts' rooms, service, food, location, design and activities. The high rating of the two resorts also ensured their inclusion in the TOP 100 Resorts worldwide.
" We are thrilled to once again be included in these important reader awards and so are our resort teams", says Karolin Troubetzkoy, the Executive Director of the properties. "To consistently deliver a stellar guest service experience is a daily challenge in every resort and we here are very proud of and grateful to our resort teams for playing their part in this and ensuring high guest satisfaction levels over and over."
Jade Mountain St. Lucia Named #1 Caribbean Honeymoon Resort
Brides Magazine has named Saint Lucia's Jade Mountain Resort the Number One honeymoon resort in the Caribbean in their April 2012 issue.
As Brides describes, the decision was made after the magazine "…teamed up with the elite travel advisors of Virtuoso to find the best resorts, cities and islands for your big getaway."
It is official; the winning combination of the majestic natural beauty of Saint Lucia and the stunning architecture of Jade Mountain is perfect for lovers.
Owners, Karolin and architect Nick Troubetzkoy explain, "We have always been in the business of romance and through the creation of Jade Mountain, we have found a way to share with lovers the exquisite natural beauty and warm hospitality of Saint Lucia."
Built entirely in celebration of the legendary Pitons which are seen from every angle of the property, Jade Mountain is one of the World's most unique resort creations. Each of Jade Mountain's 24 sanctuaries has grand sweeping spaces where bedroom, living area and an extravagant private infinity pool glide into one another to form extraordinary platforms floating out into nature. With the fourth wall entirely absent, Jade Mountain's sanctuaries are stage-like settings from which to embrace the full glory of Saint Lucia's Pitons World Heritage Site and the Caribbean Sea.
The final "Red Rose Proposal" in one of the recent ABC's Bachelor series which took place on Jade Mountain's Celestial Terrace did not only leave the chosen bride- to- be breathless. Millions of viewers were enthralled by Saint Lucia's lush tropical and dramatic beauty, which can best be appreciated from viewpoints like Jade Mountain.
The resort team works together to fine tune every aspect of the resort experience so that the spectacular scenery and amazing accommodation is matched by outstanding service. Jade Mountain is one of only a handful of Caribbean properties with the coveted AAA 5 Diamond rating.
Honeymooners can indulge in elegant six course in-suite dining or a candle-lit private dinner on the beach, enticing in-suite spatreatments or private couple's yoga class, a resort major domo drawing a bubble bath for two at a designated time and arranging a special rose petal turn down service. Couples can also dine at the Jade Mountain Club which offers cuisine by the celebrated James Beard award winner Allen Susser and his team, or sip a cocktail on the Celestial Terrace at sunset or later for star gazing.
