Where to Stay

If you’re traveling to St Barths with a group, definitely look into villa options before going the hotel route! It sounds super luxe, but for a big enough group it can be even more cost-efficient. I go to St. Barths with my family every year—which means anywhere from 8 to 12 people—so we stay in a villa, and have only great experiences to report. Wimco Villas is the company we use to find our vacation homes, and as a bonus, they essentially act as a concierge service once you’re on the island. I believe you can look into villas through VRBO and AirBNB as well.
Cheval Blanc is beautiful and very, very luxe. It’s on one of my favorite beaches, Flamands. If you’re looking to have a fancy, chic and serene trip, Cheval Blanc is for you.
The vibe here is chiller than most hotels on the island, and the price point is slightly easier. I personally love it! It’s right on the beach and the rooms are nice/spacious. Good for families, as well.
I haven’t spent too much time at Le Sereno, but I actually seriously considered getting married here! They are an OG 5-star hotel on the island (recently underwent renovations after Hurricane Irma) and seem to do everything exceptionally well.
