Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet, architect and hotelier Nick Troubetzkoy’s resorts on the Caribbean island of St Lucia, are undeniably gorgeous. But they also reflect Troubetzkoy’s love of nature and are routinely recognized for their forward-looking water- and energy-management systems, local-food policy and recycling programs. Now the resorts are offering the chance to be a righteous defender of St Lucia’s astonishing coral reefs by spearing yourself a tasty dinner with the special ‘Invasive Lionfish Tracker’ diving course. A surge in lionfish numbers has disrupted the local ecosystem, damaging coral and other fish. On this experience, divers learn about the threat posed by this intrusive species before spearfishing them to enjoy a lionfish dinner (with your very own catch of the day) on the beach.
Piton Pool Suite at Anse Chastanet from $1,170 per night, lionfish-tracker dive $180 per person. Contact Zina Lamontagne, guest services adviser, email@example.com, +1 758 459 7000, ansechastanet.com
