There is no other island quite like internationally acclaimed island of Saint Barthélemy, colloquially known as St. Barths in the French West Indies. The perfect combination of France, the Caribbean and Elle Décor, it has a sophisticated island vibe all its own. The same can be said of the Hotel Christopher recently reopened in tony Pointe Milou after a three-year revamp.
One of St. Barth’s original grande dames, this intimate 42-room hideaway will sure to please even the most discerning traveler. Tucked into a botanical garden on a hillside overlooking the sea, luxury property offers warm, welcoming ambiance of the West Indies. Bold, neutral colors, furniture outfitted with dark wood, expansive windows, and a focus on simple, island beauty creates a relaxing ambiance for every guest.
The pool, large and infinity-edged, meanders along the waterfront and seems to merge with the sea, and a little “pool island” – complete with palm trees – is a primo spot to see and be seen while sunbathing.
Christopher’s two restaurants include Mango, the feet-in-the-sand informal restaurant, which features a pool bar where thirsty patrons can belly up for une coupe de Champagne or a tropical cocktail and guests dally over leisurely lunches. Another day in paradise begins at the casually elegant seaside Taïno where they serve breakfast including a full buffet. Taïno is very St. Barth and is perfect for a sunset cocktail, dinner or ending the evening with vanilla rum.
The hotel’s recently opened Spa Sisely overlooking the ocean with tons of great treatments and massages transports guests to an exotic, sensorial world of relaxation and rejuvenation.
At Hotel Christopher every guest is a VIP, so get ready for the star treatment.
