Jade Mountain Offers New Saint Lucia Excursion

Award-Winning Caribbean Resort Debuts "Whisk Her Away" Encounter With Luxury

One of the top resorts in the world, Saint Lucia's multiple award-winning Jade Mountain, is offering cruise ship couples arriving on the island a daytime excursion like no other. The resort's "Whisk Her Away to Jade Mountain" promotion entices shipboard couples to grab an opportunity to escape the hordes of fellow passengers to an exquisite luxury daytime encounter. The cruise couple will be taken to the enchanting former French colonial capital of Soufrière to experience the unique Jade Mountain resort hideaway with its world class cuisine and breathtaking views of the iconic twin peak Pitons mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Often listed among the top three resorts in the Caribbean, Jade Mountain is an architectural marvel created to celebrate Saint Lucia's magnificent scenic beauty. Cruise ship guests will be whisked by private helicopter from Castries and met 20 minutes later on the property's helicopter pad and the Jade Mountain Club for a refreshing glass of champagne. The helicopter ride treats passengers to stunning views of the island's beautiful west coast before descending onto Jade which is regally perched in the rugged hillside above the sea.

With the Pitons as the backdrop, guests will enjoy a specially designed four-course lunch with a choice of wines created by Executive Chef Jonathan Dearden. Jade Mountain's menu features fresh seasonal ingredients, including organic produce grown on the resort's Emerald Estate farm.

The excursion costs US $2,799 per couple (two passengers) or US $3,099 for four persons in total. Alternatively, tours can also be booked via private speedboat for US $1,999 per couple (two passengers) or US $2,499 for four passengers. Tours are commissionable for travel agents.
