French flair meets tropical
joie de vivre
Saint Bart's evokes a contented sigh from anyone who has been. Located on just eight
square miles, this small French island is a pristine wonderland of natural beauty, with
beautiful blue water, green hills, cliffside views, and excellent restaurants and shopping.
Saint Bart's has a reputation as a jet-setter's playground, and it does have an ultraluxe side, particularly in the high seasons of Christmas and New Year's. But its relaxed
beauty, combined with the boutiques and fine dining scene, is what makes it so special
Gustavia is the main shopping and restaurant center, while Saint Jean, located on
the other side of the island, is a smaller hub. Gustavia is home to top brands like
Chanel, but you'll want to check out smaller stores like Sea Memory, Baya, and
French Indies Design.
Popular beaches include Saint Jean Beach for pristine water and a view of Eden Rock,
one of Saint Bart's legendary hotels, as well as Saline Beach, always a draw for visitors.
Our Virtuoso shore experience includes lunch at one of Saint Bart's most stunning
properties, Hotel Le Toiny. At the beach club, you'll enjoy water views, a cute boutique,
and fabulous food.
