New York, NY, July 16, 2014 – The leading travel magazine, Travel + Leisure, has just announced that Saint Lucia’s Jade Mountain has once again been named the Top Hotel in the Caribbean, Bermuda, and the Bahamas in the latest Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2014.
This is the 3rd time that the readers of Travel + Leisure have awarded this distinction to Jade Mountain, the 29-room, AAA Five Diamond luxury resort known for its stunning sanctuaries with no fourth wall, mesmerizing in-room infinity pools, exceptional organic cuisine and the highest level of personalized service.
Owners Nick and Karolin Troubetzkoy are thrilled and deeply grateful for their guests’ recognition of their highly unique creation. “This award means a lot to us. Being a privately owned property, it makes us proud that together with our resort team, we can showcase that an individual property can provide the highest level of service and guest experience which often is expected to be deliverable by brands only.” says Mrs. Troubetzkoy, who also is the property’s Executive Director.
The Jade Mountain experience is the culmination of attentive service provided by the loyal and highly engaged staff, a creative farm to table culinary approach and of course, the transfixing architecture showcasing Saint Lucia’s stunning beauty in the lush tropical surroundings of Jade Mountain’s 600 acre beachfront estate.
Nick Troubetzkoy, the resort chairman, architect and builder started his love affair with Saint Lucia and the Caribbean with the opening of Jade Mountain’s sister property, Anse Chastanet in the 70’s. He then unleashed all of his creative passions in the design of Jade Mountain, which opened in early 2007: a bold architectural statement perched on a mountain top overlooking Saint Lucia’s landmark, the spectacular twin Pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
At Jade Mountain, individual bridges lead to the resort’s stunning open-walled guest sanctuaries. In each of the 24 sanctuaries, bedroom, living area and an extravagant private infinity pool glide into one another to form extraordinary platforms floating out into nature. With the fourth wall entirely absent, Jade Mountain’s sanctuaries are stage-like settings from which to embrace Saint Lucia’s scenic splendor.
“In the design of Jade Mountain, it was imperative for us that this complex creative act was accomplished using the palette of indigenous materials lying at our very door step. Our mantra throughout, as well as being location, location, location, was as importantly also local, local, local”, says Mr. Troubetzkoy.
The Jade Mountain guest service team is led by the resort major–domo butlers who are assigned to each guest and who look after their resort experience around the clock from arrival to departure.
Mrs. Troubetzkoy worked with consulting chef and James Beard Award Winner Allen Susser to create Jade Cuisine, now famous for its creative menu, indigenous food festivals and on-site chocolate laboratory. Meals are served in the Jade Mountain Club, wrapped around an infinity pool with a dazzling prism of colors.
The results of the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2014 will be featured on www.travelandleisure.com/worlds-best/2014 and also, in the August issue of Travel + Leisure, on newsstands July 18.
