THE PEARL OF THE CARIBBEAN!
French West Indies. Three perfect little words. Add another two, St. Barts, and you have the winning combination for a vacation you won’t soon forget.
In today’s highly competitive tourism market, St. Barth—a peewee of an island with less than 10,000 full-time residents—could be easily overlooked. Yet, it has become the gold standard in Caribbean travel. In less than 30 years, St. Barth has captured the heart of two generations of travelers who believe that there is no other place like it in the world.
St. Barts, also known as the pearl of the Caribbean, is an island paradise where the weather varies from idyllic to perfect, from 82 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
The island can boast of its many white sand beaches, all more beautiful one than the other. The island’s craggy landscape combines sea and hills and offers some breathtakingly beautiful views. Its size, a mere 9 square miles, makes it easy to get around in St. Barth and difficult to get lost. Even to first-time visitors, St. Barth feels familiar and safe. You can navigate in complete safety and freedom anywhere on the island and at anytime.
Generations of responsible island leadership have systematically applied careful thought into the management, distribution, and protection of island resources so that future generations may continue to be nurtured by a clean, safe, and attractive environment. They have also exercised restraint in building and development and avoided many of the socio-economic problems that many of our Caribbean neighbors face while remaining tourist-friendly. In St. Barth, you can use your dollars as easily as your Euros.
There are over 70 restaurants for all budgets and moods. And, it is hard to get a bad meal in St. Barts. Even the more modestly priced restaurants take pride in their contribution to the island’s world-class reputation for great foods and wines.
Like the restaurant business, St. Barth’s hotels run from modest family-run inns to Relais & Chateaux or leading hotel luxury, where each detail is considered with care and attention. If you prefer, enjoy a stay in any one of the luxury villas available for rent.
Major designer luxury brands—Hermes, Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Chopard, Bvlgari, De Grisogono, Roberto Cavalli—co-exist with sophisticated or local niche businesses and shops that keep the island personal and unique.
The island’s greatest resource is the people who make it: the ones who live here year-round and the ones who come on vacation. St. Barth’s service sector is comprised of dedicated professionals in a variety of fields so that while you are visiting, you can practice your favorite sport or discover a new one. A wide variety of water-related activities, from fishing and boating to sailing and kitesurfing, is complemented by tennis, golf, yoga, swimming, fitness centers, personal coaching and more. Artistic and cultural festivals have also become a yearly mainstay on the island’s social calendar.
To all of the perfect words, we’d like to add our own: St. Barts A C C E S S. We are pleased to introduce you to an island like no other, where quality, beauty, friendliness, safety and good times are guaranteed.
Welcome, enjoy, and come back soon!
