If you’d ever googled “the most romantic hotels in St. Lucia,” chances are Jade Mountain came up. That’s because this striking, adults-only hilltop haven really is the ultimate destination for celebrating love—whether that’s a wedding, elopement, honeymoon, babymoon, anniversary trip, or couples getaway.
Built into the side of a cliff, Jade Mountain inspires amour with its breathtaking scenery, head-in-the-clouds ambiance, and no kids-allowed policy. It’s regarded as one of the most design-forward hotels in the Caribbean. The entire experience reflects the real-life beauty that’s all around with colors, materials—including stone and crushed coral—and flavors that connect to nature.
Designed to live in harmony with the environment, the resort is an architectural gem with suspended sky bridges that connect communal spaces and guest “sanctuaries”—an apropos way to describe the stunning suites of different layouts and configurations that are constructed without a fourth wall to put the focus on the jaw-dropping views of the UNESCO-listed twin Pitons that appear to hover above the shimmering sea. The most heartstopping element? En-suite infinity pools crafted by hand with prismatic tiles for floating and fawning over the panoramas. King-size four-poster beds provide the ultimate place to snooze (or have a little fun under the sheets). Bathrooms flaunt Molton Brown toiletries, rainfall showers, and chromotherapy whirlpool tubs that fit two people. Tropical hardwood decks with tables and loungers are a dream for in-room dining.
Feel like stepping outside the intimate cocoon of your accommodation? Plenty of picture-perfect spots to soak in the seductive atmosphere and sweeping vistas await. The Celestial Terrace is a favorite for sipping champagne and watching the sunset or stargazing in the evening. The spa offers a menu of restorative spa treatments—notably a next-level pleasurable couples ritual featuring a synchronous massage with tantra vibrational oil. Complimentary yoga classes are available. There’s a fitness studio and guided hikes around the lush 600-acre estate. Guests also have access to two serviced beaches and watersports facilities at the sister resort, Anse Chastanet.
The culinary program is another heavenly highlight. Helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef Allen Susser, the main restaurant, Jade Mountain Club, tantalizes tastebuds with creative dishes like white lump crab tartare with crispy rice paper, avocado, orange, caramelized garlic aioli, herbs, and edible flowers. Couples can take cooking classes or visit the chocolate lab to taste and help make decadent sweet aphrodisiac treats. The staff will happily arrange private dinners on the beach to celebrate a special occasion or rev up the romance on a vacation date night.
