St. Lucia

JoAnn Haack, Trip LeaderJoAnn Haack

I have always been drawn to the underwater world and the beauty I’ve seen in pictures and movies. Once I learned it’s possible to dive in Iowa, I never looked back. As a level 8 diver, I have helped many new divers take their first breaths underwater and have taught ages 10 to 66 since becoming a dive professional in 2008.

Resort Details


Where we are staying

The Anse Chastanet estate encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft sand beaches. The resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colorful coral reefs filled with tropical fish. To make the most of the panoramic views and the refreshing tradewinds, the open-air rooms come with wraparound flower-draped balconies. Guests may also upgrade to a private sanctuary on Jade Mountain, located high on Morne Chastanet, overlooking the Pitons and Caribbean Sea. There, you can expect grand sweeping spaces with your sleeping and living areas. Sanctuaries may also include an infinity-edge pool and/or jacuzzi.

To the travelers who just want to hang out and relax, there are a plethora of extracurricular activities and excursions available to you. Travelers can lie on the beach, get pampered in the resort’s spa, or even mountain bike. There is a casual beachside bar and restaurant, a panoramic hillside lounge, and two treehouses that provide the romantic setting for candlelit dinners.

Learn more about the accommodations from the Anse Chastanet resort website and room upgrades for Jade Mountain.
