Our resorts Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain own and operate a private helipad for the exclusive use by our guests. The helipad is situated in the hills behind the properties, a 5 minute drive to either property. The flying time from UVF Airport to our helipad is approximately 6 minutes and from SLU Airport, approximate 8 minutes. In comparison, a land taxi will take approximately 60 minutes from UVF Airport and 75 minutes from SLU Airport. Arriving by helicopter affords our guests a spectacular first introduction to St.Lucia’s stunning lush tropical beauty.
We book our helicopter transfers with the island's one and only helicopter company. The company requires a minimum of 4 passengers booked on any given flight prior to sending final confirmation of the transfer to us. As there is only one helicopter company, they enjoy good steady demand and therefore the final confirmation will come through eventually, even though it may only be the day prior to arrival.
Should you wish to have a guaranteed helicopter transfer at the time you are making your reservation with us, you would need to guarantee a purchase of 4 seats, in case no other passengers will have signed up for the date and time you require. Should you wish to book a private helicopter transfer, 6 seats would need to be purchased.
Helicopter transfers are available only during day light hours. Helicopter transfers are only available on Saint Lucia and cannot be booked to fly to neighboring islands.
As there is a limited amount of helicopters, please know that mechanical issues or weather issues could always lead to last minute cancellation in which case the resort would automatically secure a land transfer for you. There may also be last minute delays over which we will have no influence as they could be caused by a variety of reasons. Please also be aware that your luggage will be transported to and reach the resort separately. Your hand luggage can travel with you. We thank you for your understanding.
