Travel and Leisure World's Best Awards

I just wanted to post the great news we received yesterday:


Jade Mountain of St. Lucia has today been declared the Number One hotel in all of the Caribbean, Bermuda, and The Bahamas.

Anse Chastanet of St. Lucia has been declared the Number Four hotel in the Caribbean, Bermuda and Bahamas.

Jade Mountain of St. Lucia has been declared the Number Three hotel of the World's Ten Best Hotels, the very first time ever that a Caribbean hotel has made it onto the magazine's world wide category.

Travel and Leisure magazine announced this morning the winners of their World Best awards on the NBC Today show and their website

Featured in their August issue, Travel + Leisure's 14th annual World's Best Awards poll asked readers to rate the best hotels, cruises, airlines, outfitters, cities, and islands and they selected Jade Mountain
( ) as the top resort in the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas category.

Also, Jade Mountain ranked on position 3 of the Top Ten hotels worldwide, the first time ever a Caribbean hotel made it into the magazine's Top Ten listing.

Jade Mountain's owners, Nick and Karolin Troubetzkoy are thrilled with their resort's ranking. "The resort team has worked very hard since Jade Mountain opened over 2 years ago, to perfect and fine tune every aspect of our guests' resort experience. We cannot thank them enough for their commitment and enthusiasm throughout.", Karolin Troubetzkoy said in a statement this morning.

The Troubetzkoys were equally delighted to see Jade Mountain's sister property, Anse Chastanet, on position 4 of the Top Caribbean Resorts listing. " The resort teams at Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet have a healthy competition going among themselves at all times - the guests definitely are the beneficiaries of that ambition and we are very pleased to see both resorts honored in the Travel and Leisure awards today ", Karolin Troubetzkoy added.

Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet enjoy one of the most scenic settings in the Caribbean, overlooking St.Lucia's twin Piton peaks, a World Heritage site. Nestled amidst a 600 acre estate with two soft sand beaches bordering pristine coral reefs, ANSE CHASTANET is in complete harmony with its natural surroundings and offers excellent diving facilities plus many other activities. In the fall of 2006, Anse Chastanet's architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy completed construction of Jade Mountain. His bold architectural design - individual bridges leading to extravagant infinity pool sanctuaries and rugged stoned-faced columns reaching towards the sky - have established Jade Mountain as one of the Caribbean's most unique resort experiences. More sculpture than structure, JADE MOUNTAIN has been called the 8th Wonder of the World and should be on everyone's bucket list of the Top Places to see before you die.
