Located along the pristine and prestigious beaches of Flamands Beach, the revered Cheval Blanc Saint-Barth has long been one of the most exclusive hotels on what is already an ultra-exclusive island. Like the Eden Rock St Barths, this property caters to travelers who crave luminary status along with over-the-top luxury when they vacation. We were thrilled that Angela was able to visit this classic property in Saint Barths during her recent visit to the island and her top takeaway is clear: this hotel simply cannot be beaten.
The hotel is a crisp white from head to toe, allowing the tropical foliage and turquoise waters to shine. Pops of coral hues are strategically placed throughout anchoring the beauty of the island in the beach-contemporary, clean design. The open-air lobby is flanked by garden pathways leading to the accommodations throughout the property. Signature artwork by Jean-Michel Othoneil, the Constellation of Pegasus, greets guests with unmatched style and immediately gives arriving guests a sense that they have arrived in more ways than one. The arrival experience has been created to lift the weight of their travel day off of guests’ shoulders and make all thoughts of real-world problems disappear.
Guests find their rooms off of boardwalks lined with stunning tropical gardens and trees, providing perfect ambiance and shade from the Caribbean sun. The rooms are spacious and maintain the same white design aesthetic as the main buildings, with touches of blue in the Ocean rooms instead of coral that bring the soothing ocean waters into the accommodations. The Garden suites feature gray touches and views of the vibrant greenery of the island.
The true queen on property is without a doubt the Villa de France, a stunning 5-bedroom villa with sweeping views of the ocean and access to the beautiful beach. Featuring not one, but two private infinity pools, a private spa & gym, and a kitchen to host meals prepared by a private chef, this villa operates as a boutique hotel within a boutique hotel. Each bedroom comes with its own bathroom and the villa can comfortably house 10 guests. Cheval Blanc Saint-Barth does not offer connecting rooms and families traveling together will need to book multi-bedroom suites or villas to accommodate their groups. Villa de France is perfect for larger families or groups of friends looking to enjoy an even more elevated experience at this exclusive property.
Aside from high-touch service and an incredible room product, Cheval Blanc Saint-Barths offers what is arguably the best spa on the island. With only 4 treatment rooms, it is advisable to book your spa services well in advance. The Guerlain treatments are as high-end as they come and with treatment packages designed with a focus on wellness and anti-aging, guests find themselves leaving the spa feeling renewed and refreshed.
Dining here is just as perfect as the rest of the experience with two meticulously designed restaurants that deliver beautiful meals and a lovely bar for a well-deserved cocktail or two. La Case is well known across the island and very popular for lunch while La Cabane, the beachfront restaurant, offers gourmet cuisine in a soothing setting. The White Bar is the stunning cocktail bar on property with an inventive menu and beautiful views. Guests wanting something unique can take advantage of the property’s Carte Blanche option, offering perfectly packed picnics, private dinner cruises, or in-room meals with a stunning presentation.
