Friday,  July 10, 2009  St. Lucia's Jade Mountain has been named Number One in the Caribbean and Number Three worldwide based on the results of a 2009 Travel + Leisure "World's Best Awards" readers' survey, once again hoisting the island nation on the winners' plinth for quality accommodation.


Travel + Leisure magazine announced the winners of their elaborate survey on the NBC Today Show this morning and on their website on


To be featured in their upcoming August issue, Travel + Leisure's prestigious annual World's Best Awards survey asked readers to select their favorite hotels, cruises, airlines, outfitters, cities, and islands around the world.


They selected Jade Mountain ( as the top resort in the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas category. The resort also ranked third out of the Top 100 hotels worldwide.


Jade Mountain's owners, Nick and Karolin Troubetzkoy expressed their joy with their rankings. "Our resort team has worked very hard since Jade Mountain opened more than two years ago, to perfect and fine tune every aspect of the resort experience. We cannot thank them enough for their commitment and enthusiasm throughout," Karolin Troubetzkoy said in a statement prepared for reporters this morning.


The Troubetzkoys were equally delighted to report that Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain's sister property, placed fourth in the Caribbean's Top 25 category. "Our teams at Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet have a healthy competition going among themselves at all times - the guests definitely are the beneficiaries of this drive and ambition. We are very pleased to see both resorts register top marks from the Travel + Leisure survey today," Karolin Troubetzkoy added.


Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet enjoy one of the most scenic settings in the Caribbean, overlooking St. Lucia's twin Piton peaks, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Nestling in a 600-acre estate with two soft sand beaches bordering pristine coral reefs, Anse Chastanet is in complete harmony with its natural surroundings and offers excellent diving facilities plus many other activities.


In the fall of 2006, Anse Chastanet's architect and owner Nick Troubetzkoy completed construction of Jade Mountain. His bold architectural design - individual bridges leading to extravagant infinity pool sanctuaries and rugged stoned-faced columns reaching towards the sky - have established Jade Mountain as one of the Caribbean's most unique resort experiences.


More sculpture than structure, Jade Mountain has been called by many as the Eighth Wonder of the World and many argue it should be on everyone's Top Places to see before departing the planet.
