'Climb To Unwind' Hiking & Spa Package Launches

Jade Mountain, St Lucia, has unveiled a ‘Climb to Unwind’ hike-and-spa package for adventurous guests.

The package, which coincides with the official recognition of ‘Sports Climbing’ as an Olympic event, combines a challenging Piton climb and mountain top meditation with a range of relaxing post-hike spa and well-being treatments.

Climbing is often cited as an exhilarating way to practise mindfulness; it requires complete concentration and focus on the task at hand. One of the island’s most iconic and scenic nature trails, the climb will allow guests to completely switch off from the stresses and anxieties of everyday life, before enjoying a blissful spa session back at the resort.

The ‘Climb to Unwind’ package follows the recent launch of Jade Mountain’s ‘Hiking Butler’ and will see guests reach the summit of the island’s Gros Piton, ideal for advanced hikers looking for the ultimate physical challenge. A world-heritage site, guests can enjoy spectacular 360-degree views from the twin mountains that form the trademark landscape of St Lucia.

Jade Mountain’s resident Hiking Butler will be on hand to help lion-hearted hikers through the challenging climb, safely guiding them through the best possible route whilst sharing fascinating knowledge about the island.

At the top of the summit, guests will be offered a gourmet champagne picnic prepared by the hiking concierge, and can find a state of zen with mindful mountain-top meditation, all of which can be enjoyed against the mesmerizing backdrop of St Lucia from above.

Jade Mountain’s ‘Climb to Unwind’ package starts from $390 (£285*) per person and includes the Gros Piton Climb, Hiking Butler service and summit picnic. Guests can book the yoga, meditation and climber’s massage add-ons upon arrival.

Nightly rates at Jade Mountain start from $1,110 (£812*) per sanctuary based on double occupancy. Rates are subject to 10% service charge and 10% VAT.
