Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa, St. Barthélemy
St. Barths knows luxury, but Le Barthelemy perfected it. It’s not hard to imagine how being steps from crystal blue waters set alongside rolling lush green hills would make for a deeply memorable Carribean experience, but even better is coming home to a resort meticulously designed around your comfort. Located on a perfect crescent bay, with a 600 foot beachfront, this shining beacon of a hotel is windswept in light soothing colors, ensuring harmony with the landscape and turquoise blue sea. Luxe suites offer additional details such as private gardens, plunge pools, or terraces overlooking the expansive vistas. Dine at Aux Amis restaurant to try the fresh caught fish, or unwind at Le Spa offering La Mer product and treatments. Despite the high standard of luxury, you’re welcomed to an authentic, friendly, and down to earth atmosphere.

Ask about the six bedroom villas located on the beach, just next door with all of the services of the hotel. The perfect exclusive getaway!
Make sure to check out their rooftop bar, Whisky Tango Foxtrot, or WTF for short! It originated when the hotel manager went to survey the damage after Hurricane Irma, and found the seating area on the roof to be completely untouched, prompting an expletive reaction. He figured it must be good luck, and they were inspired to create the only rooftop bar in St. Barths.
The last time I visited was just as the hotel reopened after Hurricane Irma. The island was just starting to come alive and the hotel was packed and everyone was so happy and relaxed. Everyone felt at home whether they were couples, a group of friends or a multigenerational family. It was like the party was just getting started again!
