The Pitons are mountains that are covered with tropical greenery. They are located near the towns of Soufrière and Choiseul on the southwestern coast of the island of St. Lucia. These peaks protrude from the sea, and are stunning and magical. One of the loveliest places on earth is anywhere you can see these luminous peaks.
At Anse Chastenet, nobody watches TV, only the daily panoramic sunsets that coax you to sleep. This special place, which seems more like a place the Swiss Family Robinson lived than a hotel, is built into a flower-decked cliff that takes advantage of the view of the Pitons. The fourth wall of every room is completely open to both the Piti and Gros Piton mountains, but still completely private. There are hundreds of stairs to climb to navigate between the beach and your room, and not for the easily-winded (no elevator because it is all outside!) To eat dinner, one must climb hundreds of stairs to the top of the hotel deck to see a 360-view of a lush tropical forest bordered by two small sandy beaches. St. Lucia diving is excellent, as there is a protected marine reserve with tons of fish and coral reef galore.
