Want to vacation like the rich and famous? Aiming to rub shoulders with Beyonce & Jay Z, and keep up with the Kardashians? Look no further than St. Barth’s. Don’t let the size of this 25 km² island fool you – there is beach-hopping, eating, drinking, shopping, and yachting in abundance, a place to see and be seen. The Luxury Travel Agency loves this island; a must-visit if you are looking for some rest and relaxation as well as the Caribbean’s most elite parties!
Luxury in St. Barth: Fun in the Sun
With only about 60 days of rain per year and temperatures averaging 25-30º C year-round, this is the perfect destination for sun-seekers and sea-lovers. The refreshing breezes brought by the trade winds keep summertime temperatures lower than some of its neighbors – meaning there’s never a bad time to visit!
If you are in St. Barth, one must-visit is the famed Nikki Beach on a Sunday. The Beach Club takes two seating times for lunch and the action starts around 2:00 PM, so don’t dally – you won’t want to miss this party, renowned around the island for its sheer energy and quality.
Luxury in St. Barth: The LTA’s Favorites
While your high-end accommodation options are many, The Luxury Travel Agency particularly recommends three: Cheval Blanc, Le Toiny, and Le Sereno.
Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France provides a distinctly sophisticated beach feel to their discerning guests. They have a wide variety of room choices to choose from, but their Beach Suites are truly special: located directly on dazzling Flamands Beach, with a sprawling terrace and private infinity pool, these are tough to top!
Le Toiny is truly a special boutique property. With only 22 rooms, each unit is extra-spacious and contemporary in design, including private pools for every guest – the perfect place to be to enjoy the views with a little peace and quiet. Left your favorite beach wrap at home? No Problem – Le Toiny has a boutique located at the beach club with high-quality brands that keep abreast of every trend.
Le Sereno is nearly overwhelming in its natural beauty. Their wooden design used in the rooms gives off a chic rustic vibe, without diluting in any way their 5-star luxury service! If you are traveling with a family, the property has gorgeous 4-bedroom villas that provide more than enough space for all. If you’re looking for a bit of water adventure, Le Sereno sits on the Grand Cul de Sac and is known for its great kite surfing – you can catch the action right outside your room!
Luxury in St. Barth – Out & About
In St. Barth, the resorts are just the tip of the luxury iceberg. World-class restaurants such as L’Isola, Bonita, Le Tamarin, Bagatelle, and L’Isoletta dot the shoreline. Looking for a little bit of romance? Make your way to Colombier Beach, a 30-minute walk from the main road. Don’t fret, for it will be worth your wait: the beach is located just beyond a rocky hill, a lovely location to get away and enjoy a little bit of alone time, especially on such a small island. Ask the hotel concierge to pack a picnic – truly a little slice of heaven!
Feel like getting out on the open seas? The Luxury Travel Agency works with the best charter companies in St. Barth and can arrange to book you a yacht for the day to explore this stunning island; you could even go as far as the neighboring islands of St. Maarten or Anguilla. With massive corals and schools of multi-colored fish, St. Barth is also a great location to do some snorkeling or Scuba Diving. When you’re back on shore, return to a private dinner on the white sands to wrap up a day in paradise.
At these and all of St. Barth’s most exceptional resorts, The Luxury Travel Agency can offer you the very lowest rates, along with an array of completely free amenities and benefits.
