James Bond meets St. Lucia's Piton Mountains and the Caribbean at Jade Mountain Resort, a spectacular 24-suite retreat where each room comes with a view with the entire fourth wall completely open to the outdoors. Also, each of the "sanctuaries" come with a massive infinity pool whose reflections merge with those of the Caribbean Sea below. elevision, radios, and telephone are explicitly absent from the suites.
With two protected and reef-encrusted bays at Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain offers stellar scuba diving and snorkeling, as well as ocean kayaking and sunset sailing and yachting if you love to get out on the water. There is a bar/restaurant, a spa and a tennis court.
