The Most Incredible Hotel Rooms in The World

Named as the most romantic resort in the world, Jade Mountain offers some of the most insane views in the world. St. Lucia is renowned for its organic and natural beauty, and this hotel only highlights that. The weather is such that each room is open – there are no windows – and each room has its own infinity pool leading out to the sea and with incredible, out-of-this-world views.

The design is as stunning as the resort is sustainable, requiring nearly no HVAC, minimal electricity, drawing water almost completely by gravity, and feeding guests locally grown, organic foods.

“I wanted to create individualized spatial environments that would enable guests to forget the fact they’re in a hotel room—and in essence to forget every preconception and to experience the psychology of a dynamic and monumental space on an intuitive and primal emotional level,” says architect/owner Nick Troubetzkoy about Jade Mountain, a popular destination for St. Lucia honeymoons.

EXPERIENTIAL TRAVEL IS becoming more and more popular these days. And we’re all about it normally, from El Camino’s photographer-included adventures to the rush of exotic yoga retreats that have hit the wellness world. But, on the flip, sometimes a girl just needs to get away and since “group activities” are usually deeply woven into the framework of experiential travel, we recently decided to go a different route for a holiday getaway.

Are you a passionate person? Seriously, ask yourself that question.

Hidden Gem of The Caribbean

With lush rainforests and mountainous terrain, Saint Lucia is a beauty of an island that still manages to feel like a hidden gem of the Caribbean. Pack a swimsuit plus something for motion-sickness – there are so many switchback roads through the mountains, it’s enough to make even the steadiest person’s head spin – and you’re all set for a tropical getaway to this island treasure where you can go all out or vacay more moderately.







Top 10 Most Luxurious Resorts in The Caribbean

With an abundance of powder-soft sands, coconut covered hills, and lush valleys of sugar cane and bananas, it should come as no surprise that the Caribbean is the number one holiday destination in the Americas. With the cold and dark winter days rapidly approaching, some will start craving about a warm sea breeze, poolside cocktails and glorious beaches. To help you pick the right spot, I made a selection of my 10 favorite Caribbean luxury resorts, that rank among the most lavish in the world.







Top 10 Cliffside Resorts with Views to Die For

Carved into a hillside near St. Lucia’s highest point, Jade Mountain claims unrivaled views of the island’s twin Pitons from 29 open-air guest rooms (each with its own swimming pool or hot tub), a fine-dining restaurant, and a sprawling rooftop lounge.










St. Lucia, May 2016: Jade Mountain, the unique Saint Lucia resort known for its open-air sanctuaries and picture-perfect panoramas, has just rated a spot on American Express Travel's list of the world’s top 25 hotels offering a "Best in Class" customer experience.

Jade Mountain won the award for "Most Breathtaking Views."
This exclusive list was selected from the portfolio of more than 800 luxury getaways worldwide recommended by American Express Travel's Fine Hotels & Resorts (FHR). The winning hotels were chosen by an elite group of globetrotting experts: the editors at Departures magazine, American Express Travel Counselors and members of the company's executive team. "These are all hotels that deliver extraordinary experiences to our Card Members," American Express told the winners in a statement.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be recognized by American Express as their choice for Most Breathtaking View and to be in company with some of the most acclaimed hotels in the world,” said Karolin Troubetzkoy, owner and marketing director of Jade Mountain and its adjacent sister hotel, Anse Chastanet. 

From the outset, the goal of owner and architect Nick Troubetzkoy has been to showcase Saint Lucia's unrivaled beauty. The mountainside rooms, each with a wall open to the elements, are designed like prosceniums that perfectly frame the waters of the Caribbean and the twin Piton peaks, all part of a UNESCO World Heritage site.  As Troubetzkoy puts it, "What I’ve tried to do with Jade Mountain is to change the entire concept of a hotel room. I wanted to create environments that enable guests to forget about the furniture or the fact that they’re in a hotel – in essence, to forget about everything other than experiencing the psychology of this unique space on an intuitive level.”

With its mesmerizing panoramas, generously sized infinity pools and details like carefully handcrafted furnishings sourced from local materials, each room is a majestic, sweeping space that's a true work of art.  Jade Mountain is a labor of love and fitting tribute to Saint Lucia’s exquisite beauty.

Both Anse Chastanet and Jade have been named one the world’s top Caribbean hotels by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure

Mother Nature is sometimes more luxurious than Prada.

With views like this, you’ll forget about your fancy meal and deep tissue massage. Instead, you’ll spend your whole stay staring out the window, jaw dropped and mind boggled.
