In St Lucia, the Joy of the Mango


In St Lucia, it’s all about the mango this summer.

Two of St. Lucia’s top luxury resorts, Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain, are celebrating the mango throughout the months of June and July.

Guests can partake in a variety of mango-themed activities, events and services, featuring educational, culinary and wellness amenities.

“With the abundance of mangoes available during this time in St. Lucia, we decided to declare June and July ‘Mango Months’ at Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain,” said Karolin Troubetzkoy, Executive Director of the iconic resorts. “We have many [mango] trees growing at our organic Emerald Farm, and wanted to celebrate the various types of mangoes found here on the island, while educating our guests and enhancing their experience with mango-inspired offerings.”

The hotels are also offering weekly mango tasting classes, learn how to make mango chutney and jam, concoct mango cocktails and indulge in a variety of mango-infused body scrubs, wraps and massages available at the spa.

Consulting Chef Allen Susser has spearheaded a “Mango Madness” festival which began June 24 and will run through June 28.

Susser, the National Mango Board spokesman and author of the Great Mango Book, will mark the experience with five days of mango-themed activities and events.

These include a mango cocktail party, a mango mixology class, a mango tour of Nick Troubetzkoy’s Emerald Gardens and the ‘Night of 1,000 Mangoes’ dinner at the Treehouse Restaurant.
