Joining the Cheval Blanc Randheli in the Maldives and the Cheval Blanc Courchevel, the 36-room ski-in ski-out Maison in Courchevel 1850, 15 October 2014 will see the unveiling of Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, a new Maison for the Cheval Blanc collection.
Capitalizing on the property’s tremendous assets, the Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France has since been undergoing a series of enhancements that will culminate this summer before it re-opens for the new season in October.
A completely new Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France
Acquired in July 2013 by LVMH, the Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France completed a 3 year refurbishment by leading British interior designer Bee Osborn in 2013 that saw the renovation of all public areas as well as the villas, suites and rooms (each individually designed) in the hotel’s inimitable character, combining West Indian charm and unpretentious South of France style.
The Maison’s new colour palette combines Cheval Blanc’s signature taupe with a daring blush pink – created just for Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France – that strikingly enhances the Maison’s trademark blue. This new color scheme pays tribute to the Caribbean turquoise waters and colorful local façades.
Well-known for its highly personalized service and laid-back spirit, the Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France enjoys an idyllic setting on one of the finest beaches in the Caribbean. Facing the Flamands beach, nestled in the tropical garden or perched on the hillside overlooking the bay, the Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France features 40 spacious rooms, suites and villas, either with panoramic views of Flamands Beach or nestled in the lush gardens.
The Maison is also home to La Case de I’Isle restaurant, a local favorite, which serves Caribbean-inflected French cuisine in a dining room with superb ocean views, La Cabane de l’Isle for feet-in-the-sand lunches and the White Pool Bar, with its entertaining weekly fashion shows.
The fabulous Flamands Villas
For those seeking privacy and exclusivity, the Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France offers you one of the premier beachfront villas on St Barths. Located right on the beach, the two beautiful Flamands Villas are offering privacy, exclusivity, grand views, and divine luxury.
This spectacular three bedroom beachfront villa provides guests with a elegantly casual but chicly sophisticated accommodation. Designed by Penny Morrison, the Flamands villas boast three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms showcasing stone bath tub, double vanity sink and dressing area. The suites include a home cinema room, fitness room and a kitchen with high end appliances.
To top it all, each villa has a private plunge pool and a direct beach access to Flamands beach, one of the island’s best beaches, as well as direct access to the hotel’s beach side restaurant Le Cabane de l’Isle for blissful beach side lounging and dining.
The sensuous and resplendent Isle de France Hotel on Flamands Beach offers a premiere retreat to relax and celebrate life. Villa Flamands allows guests the best of both worlds by offering one of the best beachfront villas on St Barths with the all the amenities of the island’s best hotel.
