Overview

Chic island haven surrounded by turquoise waters with a spa, two pools, and first-rate restaurants

The Lowdown

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.
