St. Barts Trip Report 7/2008

Jump to last reply

I must say that in no way was I prepared for how much I would love St. Barts... Having recently been to Anguilla (CJ), St. John (Caneel), Harbour Island (Runaway Hill) and Nevis (Nisbet Plantation) I didn't realize that St. Barts could be so unique to all of those islands...it was amazing!
The dollar was certainly weak however it did not put a damper our trip. The beaches were incredible, and we had a stellar villa called Les Jardins De Emmanuel (villa photos below) owned by Rosita Magras that was brand new. It blew us away- marble and granite everywhere, pool + plunge pool for watching the sunset. The views were over Lorient and St. Jean. No detail was left unnoticed- it was a remarkable villa with a fantastic location.

Our all-time favorite meals were at The Strand (rooftop!) for dinner, Nikki Beach for lunch, and Le Tamarin for dinner. Our favorite beaches were Nikki Beach and Gourvernor. Our new favorite island, is without a doubt, St. Barth!
