Excursions & The Unexplained

There is so much to do within Anse Chastanet not covered by the lists above such as chocolate sensory classes, chocolate making lessons, rum tasting, jazzy cruise and our jazzy sunset cruise. In addition, the hotel operates a full programme of tours to the drive in volcano, botanical gardens, rain forest, to the capital, Piton Climbing just to mention a few.  So for those that want to just lie on the beach and do nothing beyond breathe, then paradise found. If on the other hand your nan was right and you have ‘ants in your pants’ we can keep you busy all day and all night long and you won’t even have to do the same thing twice, unless you want to.

The Steps

In case the images haven’t given any clues, Anse Chastanet is located on the side of a hill with most of the accommodation on the hill above the beach which is reached by approximately 100 stairs, thus making the property unsuitable for those with walking difficulties or cardiac problems. This is never a question of age. A complimentary shuttle service from beachside to hillside level is provided any time it is requested.
