St. Lucia – Experience Romance at the Jewel of the Island: Jade Mountain
By Christy Danforth (Tzell Travel Group, New York, NY)
If you are looking for a romantic destination, look no further than St. Lucia. Characterized by lush rainforests, beautiful waterfalls, and stunning Piton Mountains, this destination offers you everything you could wish for to create an unforgettable trip for just the two of you –or even your honeymoon.
The best place to stay is Nick Troubetzkoy’s Jade Mountain resort. Carved into the top of a mountain near the lush rain forest, the hotel offers spectacular views of the Piton Mountains while also giving guest a unique, peaceful experience. Jade Mountain strives to create an organic spot that exist in harmony with nature. The use of materials and colors all work to help a person to restore balance and peace to a guest’s life. The resort creates a romantic atmosphere with its unique room design – open aired, no television or telephone, a Domo (or butler) and private infinity pools.
Jade Mountain creates a sense of peace and privacy with the use of celestial terms throughout the resort. Rooms are called “sanctuaries” and can only be accessed by “Bridges to Infinity.” The bridges were given this name since each sanctuary has an infinite pool (with infinite, amazing views). Marking the entrance to many of the bridges are the “Columns to Heaven,” wire sculptures topped with hand, made colored glass tiles. The sanctuaries are truly romantic, private refuges from the world. Whether its daytime lounging at your private sun area and swimming in your private pool or nighttime gazing at the bright stars from your candle lit sanctuary, Jade Mountain offers the ultimate luxurious, romantic, pampered getaway.
