Luxury Accommodation and Sanctuaries
St Lucia’s luxury resort, Jade Mountain offers guests sanctuaries each serviced by a majordomo or butler who is on hand for your every whim. There are twenty-four sanctuaries, and each is an individual work of art; their infinity pools embody the description perfectly making you feel like you could swim into the vibrant blue beyond yet somehow the illusion draws the view in. The celebration of the view and sense of freedom captured by the flowing spaces nestled in nature is breathtaking. Sanctuaries have just three walls so that your space is open to the senses yet completely private. Four room categories are featuring infinity pools, and one features Jacuzzis only.
Each infinity pool is unique and melds perfectly to its perch. Hand crafted glass tiles adorn the pools and the patterns flow to the bathroom creating a bold personality referencing Caribbean color and creating individuality. At night fiber optics illuminate the pool, you can choose your shade or scroll through a rainbow while enjoying a romantic late night dip.
Each sanctuary’s bathroom is unique and designed to flow as part of the experience of Jade Mountain. Enjoy spectacular views while showering, soaking or indulging in a romantic candlelit evening in your whirlpool tub.
Sanctuaries vary by size and views with the largest offering 2000 square feet of delectable space and panoramic views.

There is wifi, but guests are asked not to make calls in public areas and ensure their phones are switched to silent to preserve the peaceful ambiance.
