Entering the sanctuary forces an odd silence between Jess and I. This is “home” for the next three days, yet considering what surrounds us we struggle to absorb any of it as real. The only confirmation is Jess by my side, though her broad smile forces a double take.
Eventually head to the Jade Club, a dining option perched on the top floor of the resort. No surprise, it features an open-air seating area like our sanctuary, the Pitons ever-present. Mahi Mahi and Kingfish are outstanding, rivaled in flavor only by the accompanying vegetables. Waiter informs me that the culinary staff works with local farmers to secure them. Also, Jade grows their own vegetables at Anse Mamin Plantation, part of the Anse Chastanet’s 600-acre estate.
Dining entails a flat meal rate (includes appetizers and dessert) all part of our stay’s “MAP” package price option, which covers breakfast and dinner throughout our stay.
