Jade Mountain, St. Lucia Hotel Review: Staying at Jade Mountain St. Lucia is a unique experience, carefully designed to remove guests from the banality and convention of the daily grind. Although it is possible to specially request Internet access, guest "sanctuaries" are deliberately free of telephones, radio and television. Bedrooms, living areas and private infinity pools exist in one open living space, with no fourth wall to stand between guests and majestic views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea. Jade Mountain experts personally visited the Guyana Rainforest to individually select and harvest, in an environmentally correct way, twenty different species of tropical hardwood for flooring and trims. Bathrooms are also one-of-a-kind, featuring chromatherapy whirlpool tubs and rain showers. Chef Allen Susser crafts a menu of fresh and bold flavors at the Jade Mountain Club, open all day and often featuring live entertainment in the evening. Kai en Ciel Spa provides in-room and open-air spa services, including massages, scrubs, Ayurvedic rituals, reflexology and aromatherapy. The concierge service invites every challenge, from car rentals and romantic private dinners to the more unusual, such as requests for high-end jewelry.
