This coming Thursday 11 February viewers can get a taste of Saint Lucia courtesy of the BBC programme Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby. The show, hosted by Monica Galetti and Giles Coren, sees the presenters work behind the scenes of some of the world’s most striking and stylish hotels.
This episode turns the spotlight on Jade Mountain Resort in Saint Lucia. The hotel is set on 243 hectares of lush tropical hillside above Anse Chastanet Beach. We don’t know what tasks Galetti and Coren will be given to do, but in this highest of high-end resorts even washing the dishes wouldn’t seem so bad!
Jade Mountain is blessed with breathtaking views over the Caribbean Sea and the Petit and Gros Piton mountains, but if you can bear to venture away from this little slice of paradise, the St Lucia Botanical Gardens are just 4km away. The resort even has an organic farm with 1,000 cocoa trees that provide the raw ingredients for its own artisanal chocolate production.
So, if you want to see what makes a five-star resort tick, then check in to BBC2 at 9pm on Thursday 11 or catch it on iPlayer. As the snow falls in Lockdown London, this is going to be a great way to soak up some virtual Caribbean sunshine.
