Explore diving around the Anse Chastanet

Resort Description

Anse Chastanet is a luxury 4* resort where you can scuba-dive and jungle trek by day, and have candlelit dinners in an atmospheric treehouse by night.

Anse Chastanet is exactly what you would expect from its nature-loving architect owner. The resort is bordered by two soft sand beaches, the twin-peaked backdrop is a lush World Heritage Site, and the resort's two crystal clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve, providing miles of underwater sanctuary buzzing with colorful marine life.

A string of a dozen rooms line the beach shaded by coconut palms, and the rest of the rooms are scattered among the floral hillside. All of them are designed to make the most of the panoramic views of the striking Caribbean Sea. Some of the extra-large deluxe suites even have their 4th wall open entirely to the elements, while remaining totally secluded.

For active days, choose from yoga, snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis, sunset sailing, sea kayaking or jungle biking, hiking and bird-watching among the ruins of an 18th century colonial plantation. For lazier days, get pampered at the spa or have an ice cold cocktail by the beach. Two treehouses provide atmospheric and unforgettable settings for candlelit dinners.

Description

Scuba St. Lucia is a PADI 5* Dive Resort on the beachfront at Anse Chastanet Resort.

The entire region surrounding Anse Chastanet is made up of an award winning marine reserve which has been established since 1995 to protect the pristine beauty of St.Lucia's coral reefs. Perfectly set up for both beach and boat dives, Scuba St. Lucia offers guests gear storage, a well equipped scuba store, three compressors, rental dive gear and an underwater Photo and Video center.

The dive center offers a wide range of PADI courses, from Discover Scuba Diving to Divemaster, and requires each new diver to complete an orientation dive and skill review on the house reef. All dives offered by Scuba St Lucia are guided by an instructor or dive master to maximize diver safety and enjoyment.

The house reef starts just 10 yards beyond the water's edge, and its remarkable ecosystem offers an amazing range of unusual tropical marine life, in 20 to 140 feet of calm, clear water. Anse Chastanet Reef is home to more than 150 different species of fish and makes for an amazing dive, day or night. In the shallow areas you'll see peacock flounders, octopus, needle fish and turtles. Or drop down a little deeper over dense coral growth to see puffers, moray eels, parrot fish, lobsters and even sea horses.
