Lucky you! You have discussed hotel options with one of our award winning St. Barth Properties Specialists and have chosen to stay at the 5 star beachside boutique property Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France It is as magical as the sound of its name with an ambiance that artfully blends its French West Indies location with the casual sophistication of its “cousin” the South of France. You were looking for a romantic idyll and you have arrived. Your spacious and lavish 1 Bedroom Beach Suite includes a full kitchen, an airy living room and comfortably elegant furnishings bedecked in cool cottons and vintage French fabrics. Your king size bed boasts a view of the sea and there’s a sumptuous oversized en suite bath with a tempting stone soaking tub and indoor and outdoor showers. A private terrace with your own infinity edge plunge pool is just steps from the brilliant blue waters of one of St. Barth’s most gorgeous beaches – Flamands.
Your terrace is the perfect place to begin the day with a poolside breakfast discretely delivered by room service. Grab your iPod and that new novel and head to the beach. Comfy umbrella’d chaise lounges await. Take a stroll along that wide stretch of sugar-white sand and you’ve earned a libation. The beach bar staff can muddle up a mean mojito. Come lunchtime, slip on a pareo, wriggle your feet back into your sandals, and saunter up to La Case de l’Isle; it’s one of the islands’ loveliest alfresco restaurants and the rosé corks will be popping. Try the Daily Wok – fresh and delicious – with a bottle of Clos Beylesse. Everyone adores the lunch-time fashion show presented each day by the hotel’s boutique. If you’re inspired to do a bit of shopping, don’t miss the signature lacey couture by French designer José Balensi (stunning!) and the line of men’s swimwear by Gerry St. Tropez.
Are you in the mood for a massage? The spa menu, in collaboration with the world renowned Natura Bissé and Intraceuticals skin care brands, is decadent and couples massages are offered in the Spa Pavilion. Ensconced in a tropical garden, it is uber romantic. Services come with dessert, a beautifully presented trio of icy fruit sorbets. We think you’ll be ready to return to the comfort and privacy of your suite and ease into the night.
Pop open a bottle of bubbly and enjoy the approaching twilight, the gentle breezes – and each other. The hotel concierge will be pleased to assist with dinner reservations and you would love PaCri, neighboring Hotel Taiwana’s upscale Italian resto – just a short walk down the beach. The Gnocchi and the entire experience here is exquisite.
To end a perfect day, curl up on the pool-side banquette back at the La Case de l’Isle’ and sip a digestive – St. Barth Style. Vanilla Rhum. Yum.
When you return to your suite. You’ll find chocolates on your pillow. Sweet.
