Hotel St-Barth Isle de France Review
An obsessively attentive management team ensures that this intimate, casual, refined resort remains among the very best accommodations in St. Barth—if not the entire Caribbean. It's not hard to understand why the property boasts a 72% high-season return rate—it just keeps improving each season. Arrayed along a white-sand beach, or nestled in tropical gardens, the spacious rooms, suites, and villas are private and luxurious, with refined decor (vintage French, and gossamer pale tones), marble baths (some with freestanding tubs), and an understated glamour in tune with the gorgeous surroundings. There are many different room options on the beachfront, in the garden, or on the hillside; you can choose from large single rooms and beyond-fabulous beachfront suites to bungalows that can accommodate a family of up to six. Be sure to read the descriptions and make your preferences known when you book, because every room is different. The beachside La Case de l'Isle restaurant serves fine nouvelle cuisine on a pretty verandah. The serene spa features Natura Bisse products. The white-sand beach couldn't be more pristine. The little boutique, one of the best on the island, in fact, is full of great beachwear.
For the international elite that flocks to St. Barth for great food, luxury shopping, and French flair, there is no hotel more desirable than the Isle de France. Arrayed along a white sand beach, or nestled in tropical gardens, the spacious rooms, suites, and villas are private and luxurious, with refined modern decor, huge marble bathrooms, and an understated glamour in tune with the gorgeous natural surroundings. La Case de l'Isle restaurant, perched on a pretty promontory over the beach serves light fare at lunch and dinner, a little shop stocks the most stylish beachwear, and the divine Molton Brown Spa offers dozens of personalized treatments and therapies. But what really sets this property apart is the keen attention to detail provided by the charming and efficient staff.
