Fodor's Expert Review Le Sereno

B.P. 19 Grand-Cul-de-Sac, 97113, St. Barthélemy Fodor's Choice

Those seeking a restorative, sensuous escape discover nirvana at the quietly elegant, aptly named Le Sereno, set on a beachy cove of turquoise sea, between the island's highest mountain and the foamy waves. Aside from its guest rooms and waterfront suites, the property has a relaxing beach restaurant, a retail concept store, a spa featuring exclusively curated Valmont products and treatments, and elevated fitness offerings. As always, the hotel still achieves a luxurious Zen-like calm. Its suites are huge by St. Barth standards and have spacious living areas and private sundecks. Large bathrooms, some with steeping tubs, have roomy showers and vessel sinks of solid black granite. Other perks include cloud-soft linens and robes, Internet, and flat-screen TVs. Smaller units are set in the garden, larger ones have amazing sea views, and the three-bedroom hilltop super-luxe villas will thrill even the most particular clientele. For privacy, choose units with higher numbers. Follow a short trail of bamboo and agave to some of the island's best spa treatments offered in a private open-air beachfront pavilion or right in your room. Kayak, paddleboard, and snorkeling equipment is available complimentary to hotel guests.
