The lovely Jade Mountain is as luxurious as any resort you’ll find in the Caribbean (picture at top of article)The resort sits atop the mountain like a fairytale castle of sorts. Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy puts his philosophy of building in harmony with nature on full display at Jade Mountain . With individual bridges leading to different levels and to various parts of the resort, visitors are just amazed at this architectual marvel . Rugged stone faced columns reach to the sky often topped with recycled glass whimsical displays . A unique catch basin system runs throughout the resort to recycle the water , but built in such a way, you do not realize it has a practical function , it is just pretty to look at.

The suites have only 3 walls. From your private plunge pool you have one of the best views in the Caribbean , or enjoy the view from your deep soaking tub as great attention was paid to the placement of each tub, pool and fixture in each room to best take full advantage of the majestic views of the Pitons and sea below.

Sanctuaries, a most fitting word to decribe the room categories at Jade Mountain are deliberately techo-free .
This is truly an intimate and romantic resort with only 29 suites all without TV, phones, radio or air conditioning(internet access by request only in your sanctuary)best setting to enjoy the view and all the magic that is Jade Mountain.

Spa treatments are provided in your private sanctuary or in the boutique spa Kai en Ciel .
Outstanding service is provided throughout the resort around the clock . Enjoy the privacy that Jade Mountain affords but feel free to enjoy
the facilities of sister resort Anse Chastanet where you will find several restaurants , bars, boutiques, art gallery, spa,scuba diving , bike and water sports facilities as well as a beautiful soft sand beach

** The location of Jade Mountain is so unique rising above the private estate of Anse Chastanet with 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft sand beaches with pristine coral reefs off shore. The resort growns many of its own organic produce, also weather permitting , guest can arrival by heliopter .

If you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience, whether it be for a engagement party, honeymoon or special anniversary Jade Mountain is a magical place. Destination Weddings are truly over the top at Jade Mountain .
