On St Barts, finding a 5-star hotel isn’t the issue – it’s choosing between them. The island is home to a plethora of fabulous stays, from stunning beachfront rooms to suites with private plunge pools, and we’re here to help you find the best of the best – or at the very least, help you whittle down your choices to a memory-making shortlist.
In this year’s guide, we have featured six of the finest hotels that St Barts (in fact, the world) has to offer. Four of the hotels were recently ranked in Conde Nast’s 2020 list of the top 5 best hotels in the Caribbean. With the finest restaurants, most luxurious spas and breath-taking panoramic sea views, they’ll tick every box on your Caribbean adventure list.
The only way to create a list of the best hotels in St Barts was to put them to the test. It was a tough job (we’re kidding, it was fabulous), but we’ve gained an intimate knowledge of every hotel featured on our list. From the iconic Eden Rock St Barts to the luxurious Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa, we’ve included everything you need to know before you book – even down to our favourite rooms.
Nothing beats waking up to the sound of the ocean…except waking up to the sound of the ocean in an enormous luxury bed, of course. You’ll find plenty of beachfront rooms in St Barts, each one ready to lull you into the rhythm of island life or tempt you out for a day by the ocean. From the exquisite ‘Beach Suite’ at the Cheval Blanc to the Ocean Lux room at Le Barthélemy, you’ll find our pick of the seaside suites in our guide.
When visiting St Barts, we often split our time between a hands-off, detoxing hotel stay (with plenty of trips to the spa) and the opportunity to make our holiday our own in a luxury villa. Of course, this means the villa must be just as impressive as the hotel. Whether you’re dreaming of a private infinity pool or a property right on the beach, we can help you to find somewhere truly exceptional.
