One of the world’s most revered beach destinations, St. Barths attracts elite clientele who relish its natural beauty and tranquility. And the newest luxury accommodation at this magnificent destination come October 1, when Le Barthélemy hotel will open in the Bay of Grand Cul de Sac along a 600-foot beachfront location that is part of the Nature Reserve of Saint-Barthélemy.
Set on a perfect crescent bay, the hotel is refined and fresh, as elegant and restorative as its stunning beachfront location. Offering 46 rooms and suites with interiors by celebrated designer Sybille de Margerie and cuisine by Michelin-starred French chef Guy Martin, the hotel embraces its chic Parisian pedigree while reveling in its relaxed St. Barth setting. Supremely luxurious, comprised of natural materials and bathed in light, accommodations are serene and stylish, designed with a deft hand to conjure an emotional response that complements and never competes with its island backdrop. Invisible drop-down screens easily transform outdoor terraces into private enclaves, shady and comfortable but without disturbing the view. Adding to this modern interpretation of tranquil Caribbean style, is the thoughtful integration of technology and in-room amenities by Hermès.
At Le Barthélemy, Michelin-starred French chef Guy Martin has created two dining experiences in one spectacular seaside setting. By day, the menu at Le Barth is light, fresh and carefree, with scrumptious homemade pizzas and crusty stuffed baguettes. As the sun sets, Aux Amis surfaces, sending a ripple through the daytime calm and offering island-inspired French and International cuisine in a casual setting that is elegant but never staid. Poolside, Le Turquoise, offers small bites and fresh juices.
Le Spa at Le Barthélemy, is an oasis of peace aimed at restoring the mind, body and spirit to its natural, best and most authentic self.
