Private pool in the living room of your suite
It seems that far to often romantic poolside vacations are interrupted by all of the issues that come with going to a crowded hotel pool. The new Infinty Suites at the Anse Chastanet Resort in St. Lucia will seek to eliminate any pool problems you might otherwise encounter at some other vacation resorts by simply putting a private pool right in the living room of your suite. These make great honeymoon suites (starting at USD $900 per night) for couples looking for a luxury getaway.
The 24 Infinity Suites are located on the highest point on the Anse Chastanet hill and have a bedroom, living room and a private infinity pool. Each of the suites only have three walls to allow for unobstructed views from the high vantage point. As an added bonus the suites will have their own concierge, reception area and the Jade Mountain Club Restaurant.

Get Married on the Beach
St. Lucia is a romantic beach wedding destination, offering couples a unique selection of wedding service and stunning accommodations. Each wedding ceremony is organized in personal consultation with the bride and groom. The bride and groom get to choose their own "very special location," which can be on one of the two resort beaches, the "Miss Ina," the old colonial plantation, a nearby waterfall, the coral reef or the privacy of their room. After your beach wedding, stay in one of the beautiful honeymoon suites at Jade Mountain.
