We bet nowhere you've ever stayed before compares to this.

Twenty-nine vast 'Sanctuaries' (suites doesn't even halfway cover it) are built into the hillside, linked by stone walkways, and (going one better than floor-to-ceiling windows) each of these architectural beauties is left with one whole wall missing to give you a stupendously wide panorama across Saint Lucia's Piton mountains and the Caribbean Sea.


Once you've finishing gawping from your indoor-outdoor infinity pool, your domo (butler to you and me) is on hand to tend to your every need.

Would madam like to take breakfast in bed? Ooh, yes please. A mojito brought up? You know us too well.

The record for a couple not leaving their room is six days, and it's easy to see why. If you do manage to make it out, head up to the Celestial Terrace, at the top of the resort, to watch the sunset.


Dinner at the Jade Mountain Club is worth the climb, too, or, the chef can come to you and you can try to beat that six-day record.

WOW FACTOR: There are no TVs, telephones or radios here so this really is the perfect opportunity to disconnect.

FLIGHT TIME: 9 hours.

And if that's not enough, each room boasts a Jacuzzi or infinity pool. It's designed to offer complete relaxation sothere are no televisions, radios or phones and the internet can only be accessed at the reception. Beauty treatments can be enjoyed in your room or at the Kai en Ciel spa, while the Jade Mountain Club and Celestial Terrace, both at the top of the resort, provide the perfect settings to sample Allen Susser's award-winning cuisine or enjoy a cocktail. WOW FACTOR: Looking across the beautiful Pitons World Heritage Site from your own infinity pool. Go: Book with Turquoise Holidays; call 01494 678 400 or visit for more details or email
