There are no "rooms" here, only "sanctuaries," and if that means they make you feel like a pasha swanning about in silks, then I say go with it. In art-filled suites of Barbados coral and rain-forest hardwoods, the fourth wall is nothing but silken air, with the mossy Pitons poised against blue skies like a Corot landscape. For further drama, each sanctuary is built along a forested hillside, with a small but sinuous infinity pool positioned between the living space and the sea.

Jade Mountain is largely a couples retreat (children 15 and under are not allowed), and privacy is key here: Rooms have no telephones, radios, or TVs; Internet access is limited to the lobby area; and guests are asked to use their cellphones only in their rooms or off-property. Service requests are made via "firfly" devices given to each guest upon arrival. In addition to the 24 sanctuaries, Jade Mountain also offers five Sky Jacuzzi suites, set on the lower hillside; these private two-level suites are absolutely massive, some 1,650 square feet, with raised Jacuzzis rather than infinity pools. Jade Mountain is more or less a "resort within a resort"—that larger resort would be Anse Chastanet—and as such enjoys the same amenities and activities as the mother ship.
