Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain awarded Travelife Gold Certification

Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain resorts have been recognised for their environmental efforts once again. This time, the two luxury resorts in St Lucia have been awarded Travelife Gold Certification status.

The St Lucia resorts were recognised for their responsible management of their socio-economic and environmental impacts. Both properties were carefully designed with the local environment in mind. They each demonstrate a strong commitment to protecting the environment, sustainability, and implanting best practices and community support.

Karolin Troubetzkoy, the Executive Director of the two Caribbean resorts explained:

“Respecting the people, nature and cultural aspects of St. Lucia and showing guests how it’s done at Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain was central in achieving Travelife Gold Certification.”

Troubetzkoy added:

“We want to thank Travelife for recognising our efforts, and congratulate our staff – such accolades are impossible without their commitment to excellence.”

The luxury beachfront resorts were praised for a number of energy-saving and sustainable practices. These included a “water is life” water management philosophy which made their water supply independent from the community of Soufrière to avoid any extra burden.

All cleaning products used at the hotels are non-toxic, biodegradable, and non-corrosive, and there are Strict wastewater discharge practices in place to minimise the impact on the environment. The resorts practice good energy-saving management, and all staff and guests are encouraged to reduce, recycle, and reuse.

In 2016, Jade Mountain became the Caribbean’s first hotel to earn the coveted LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification. Sustainable features at the resort include its own rainwater-fed water purification plant system, plus a system that recycles treated sewage water, and then irrigates a nursery and plants which are grown for the hotel’s gardens.

Jade Mountain is sculpted into the Soufriere hillside above its sister beach resort, Anse Chastanet. The multi-award-winning hotel boasts 29-room spacious guest suites with bedrooms, living areas, and private infinity pools that glide into one another to form platforms that float out into the natural surroundings. Rooms feature locally-made wooden furniture, and are free from TVs, phones, radios to allow total relaxation for guests.

Anse Chastanet is a located on a private estate of 600 beautiful acres of tropical land close to the sandy shores of two beaches with offshore reefs. It is the only resort on the island that boasts views of the both the Piti and Gros Piton mountains that jut out from the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Holidaymakers can savour delicious, fresh food at the onsite dining venues, relax with a yoga session on the beach go kayaking in the sea, swim in the infinity pool, or enjoy a pampering treatment in the tranquil spa.
