Two words: Duty Free

Two words: Duty Free

Shopping is serious business in St Barts – and this has a lot to do with its Duty-Free status. With huge designer labels – Hermes, Bulgari, Louis Vuitton – it’s like heading to New Bond Street, but without the tax, crowds, or traffic. There’s even a Dolce and Gabbana store with a Martini bar inside. We tend to find ourselves in the smaller boutiques in Gustavia and St Jean, where we’re guaranteed to find something totally unique.

Niche loves


Exquisite furnishings inspired by the owner’s travels around the world. You’ll find luxurious sunbeds, woven hammocks, and hand-crafted lamps.


One of a kind, statement clothing, jewellery, and homewares with an ‘I just floated in from the beach’ vibe.


Before we hit the beach, we hit Sunbarth – our go-to store for menswear, for one of their luxury linen shirts.

Orlebar Brown

Men’s tailored shorts and linen shirts plus much more from one the worlds trendiest menswear labels, originally launched in London in 2007.

M’Bolo rum

If you return from St Barts without a bottle of M’Bolo, did you even go? They’ve been infusing unique rums for over 25 years. We love their passion fruit and mango infused rums, perfect for taking home as a gift for family or friends.
