Cheval Blanc St Barth Isle de France
Acquired in July 2013 by LVMH, Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France joined the Cheval Blanc collection upon its re-opening in October 2014.
The Maison completed a 3-year refurbishment in 2013 which saw the renovation of all public areas as well as the villas, suites and rooms (each individually designed) in the property’s inimitable character, combining West Indian charm and the unpretentious style of the south of France. It is this kind of continuous improvement that has made the property one of the most sought-after hotels in the Caribbean since it opened in 1991, and made it the recipient of the first-ever Palace Distinction outside of mainland France in 2016.
Set on Flamands Beach, widely regarded as the island’s finest, and just 10 minutes from the airport, the Maison consists of 40 spacious rooms, suites and villas, either with panoramic views of Flamands Beach or nestled in the lush gardens.
The Maison is also home to La Case de I’Isle restaurant, a local favourite, which serves exquisite, locally-inspired French cuisine in a dining room with superb ocean views; La Cabane de l’Isle, perfect for feet-in-the-sand lunches and the White Bar, with its entertaining weekly fashion shows.

Leading British interior designer Bee Osborn redesigned all the villas, suites and rooms (each individually designed) in 2013. Privacy, exclusivity & luxury are the coveted attributes of these villas which feature 3 spacious en-suite bedrooms with their dedicated bathrooms – all with stone baths, double vanity units and a separate dressing area. They are soft-furnished by the London designer Penny Morrisson. The Villas also include a private fitness room, a home cinema room, a kitchen with high-end appliances and ice-maker, a very spacious lounge and outdoor terrace with its private infinity plunge pool and private access to the beach. In every villa, a Majordome looks after guests’ desires. King-size bed or twin beds are available on request.
