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.
