St. Lucia’s leading luxury resorts are among the world’s first hotels vetted for health & safety protocols.
SOUFRIERE, ST. LUCIA – February 2021: Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet are proud to announce that they are among the first hotels in the world to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have appropriate health & safety procedures in place.
Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on genuine five-star service, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols including cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the overall guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards.
“At Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet guest safety and wellbeing is our top priority,” said resort Executive Director Karolin Troubetzkoy. “Our properties feature a pioneering, open-air design that naturally encourages social distancing while facilitating constant air flow for proper ventilation. We offer onsite rapid antigen and PCR testing and have a trained team of medical professionals at the resort who are available 24/7 should any guest require medical assessment or assistance. We are fully prepared to welcome visitors and have become experts in providing a stay that meets the industry guidelines without sacrificing on the guest experience.”
This verification comes with an easily identifiable “seal of approval” – the Sharecare VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel’s compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events.
“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “By becoming VERIFIED®, Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet have demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, certified by a third party.”

ABOUT JADE MOUNTAIN AND ANSE CHASTANET
Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet overlook St. Lucia’s twin Piton peaks, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Jade Mountain’s bold design was conceived by architect and owner Nick Troubetzkoy whose philosophy is to build in harmony with Caribbean nature and the environment. Individual bridges lead to exceptional open-walled sanctuaries making it one of the Caribbean’s most mesmerizing resort experiences. In the sanctuaries, the bedroom, living area and an extravagant private infinity pool glide into one another to form extraordinary platforms that seem to float out into nature. With the fourth wall entirely absent, Jade Mountain’s sanctuaries are stage-like settings from which to embrace Saint Lucia’s full scenic glory. Jade Mountain and its sister property, Anse Chastanet enjoy one of the Caribbean’s most scenic settings, nestled in a 600-acre estate with two soft sand beaches bordering pristine coral reefs. Both hotels have consistently been named the world’s top Caribbean hotels by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. www.jademountain.com / www.ansechastanet.com
