In Your Element
WIMCO SBH | (401) 849-8012
The island offers a famously fundamental privacy to its visitors. Thanks to WIMCO, we found it not the guarded, “keep out” kind of privacy, but rather the ‘gathers you into an anonymous embrace of quiet’ kind. Not only does the company keep a scenic stable of wallpaper-worthy villas, but they specialize in ‘thought of everything’ service with a ‘no trouble at all’ smile. The lovely Ann-Marie has been helping our families plan dream vacations for years. We can’t imagine doing St. Barth any other way.
Grand Cul de Sac | +590 590 29-8300
Nestled in the discreet cove of Grand Cul de Sac, Le Sereno is a spotless five-star cocoon of luxury. Catering to those who seek sublime departure, the resort boasts the island’s only private pool and prides itself on VIP-level service. An Asian-inspired restaurant and serene, beachfront spa completes the wholly ‘paradise found’ picture.
Baie de Saint Jean | +590 590 29-7999
The original jetset grande dame needs little introduction, its octagonal largesse as ‘St. Barth’ as the island itself. A legendary sprawl on Saint-Jean beach, luxe accommodations and two Jean-Georges restaurants cement its must-see status.
Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle De France
Baie des Flamands | +590 590 27-6181
The hotel’s gleaming white entrance and picture frame views instantly take a bit of your breath away, the oceanfront station atop the sands of Flamands almost too pretty to stand. The service (with delights like onsite champagne tastings and nightly infused elixirs at turndown), stand out restaurants and flawless Guerlain spa all live up to the promise of the chic surroundings.
