From the sea, Le Barthélemy looks like a row of pretty beach cottages surrounded by palm trees and tropical plants. The first newly built hotel on St. Barts in 20 years, everything at this property is an ode to Caribbean style at its best. Interiors are by internationally known French designer Sybille de Margerie, who created airy, sun-drenched spaces that reflect the island’s own sandy beaches, turquoise waters, and lush vegetation. Each of the 46 spacious rooms feature chartreuse and turquoise accent pillows and throws set against off-white upholstery and flaxen timber, as well as massive walk-in-showers stocked with Hermès toiletries and invisible drop-down screens that transform outdoor terraces into private nooks. Most have heated plunge pools and ocean views. Michelin-starred chef Guy Martin oversees the cuisine: head to Le Barth for light daytime fare or the all-day Le Bar for fruit-forward cocktails. Otherwise, poolside Le Turquoise is the place to go for fresh juices (or more cocktails). There’s also Le Spa and Le Fitness; as the names suggest, this is where you go for rejuvenation and beautification—though the beach right outside might also do the trick.
In the Area
St. Barts is one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive islands, known for its jet-setting clientele and distinctly French sensibility. But there’s also an understated side to this fair-weather destination, and certainly everyone can enjoy the extraordinarily beautiful beaches that line the island. Grande Saline beach, in the south, is considered one of the best in the world and is also great for people-watching. Nearby is Le Grain de Sel, a casual restaurant set against a giant boulder that serves tasty Creole cuisine. The hotel is on Grand Cul-de-Sac, part of a nature reserve on the northeastern side that’s also home to the highly rated restaurant at Le Sereno resort. Not far, buzzy L’Esprit Saline serves a daily changing menu of fusion dishes by chef Jean-Claude Dufour. In the west, you’ll find gingerbread cottages housing elegant boutiques and restaurants in the picturesque capital of Gustavia, set along a yacht-ﬁlled harbor. Maya’s, which turns out a seasonal menu of fresh produce and fish, has been a favorite among regulars for three decades.

Loved everything about it, the personnel, the beach, the pool the room . Best place to stay while at st. Barths!!!
If you are looking to swim with turtles, get the attention you deserve, fine dine and all the luxurios amenities you would expect , book this hotel!
Celebrated my boyfriend's 40th birthday here for 4 days and had an amazing time! such a beautiful property with breath taking views. I am a research queen when it comes to picking a hotel to stay at and I'm so happy I went with Le Barthelemy. They have airport transfers, they gave us a complimentary upgrade, and the staff is so welcoming. I contacted the hotel before arriving to have balloons in the room for my boyfriend's birthday and they were able to to accommodate us with a bottle of champagne as well! The best part are their drinks they are to die for! Definitely will be coming back!
Very nice location, quiet and ocean front. Its a brand new hotel, with an excellent service. Sports-ocean activities at the beach. Nice and confortable room, with private pool, and direct access to the beach. Hardly recommended.
My wife, some friends and I visited the property while on the island and the food was excellent, the property is on great stretch of sand and the staff is on their A game. I highly recommend this beautiful hotel!!
